3. All About Eczema, How to Help Your Baby or Child

September 25, 2023 - Dr. Alexis Reid

This episode is all about one of my very favorite topics - eczema! I go through everything that I’ve learned about eczema over the last 10 years and what I recommend doing at every stage of development to reduce the risk of a child getting eczema.

Since there is still a lot of confusion around eczema, I explain exactly what it is, what it looks like, typical areas of the body where it is found, and who is at a greater risk of developing it. I offer my suggestions on what you can do when you’re pregnant if you have a family history of eczema, what cleaning & skincare products to use, and even share a laundry suggestion that has nothing to do with the detergent you’re using. 

Figuring out what causes your child’s eczema can be the trickiest part. I walk you through how to determine if it is certain foods that might be triggering your child’s outbreaks and offer suggestions on nutrients that can help with treating eczema. The question I get asked the most is whether or not I think eczema can be treated without steroids. Tune in to this episode to get my answer!
