Ezcema on children (and Adults) and what to use: Medihoney® by Comvita

November 4, 2015





Baby eczema can look a little scary when the red, crusty patches show up on your baby’s skin, often during their first few months.

Yet, baby eczema is not only common, it’s also very treatable, and many infants outgrow it. Not sure if your baby’s itchy, irritated rash is eczema?

Let me help you on this.



Newborn eczema
Red, crusty eczema patches can be common on a baby’s skin.

The look of the skin can be a great concern for parents. However, symptoms can be treated and many babies do outgrow their newborn eczema.

Many babies and small children have eczema (also called infantile eczema or atopic dermatitis). It shows up as patches of dry, red, leathery, sometimes pimply skin. The skin is almost always tender, itchy and rough.

While it may appear just about anywhere on a baby’s body, eczema most often occurs on a baby’s cheeks, forehead and scalp, and at the joints of their arms and legs.

Infant eczema can be easily confused with cradle cap, another red, scaly rash of infancy. Cradle cap generally clears up by eight months, and usually appears on the scalp, sides of the nose, eyelids, eyebrows and behind the ears.



No one really knows what causes a tendency to eczema. It’s an immune system reaction that can be triggered by certain soaps, creams, allergies and detergents, and may be aggravated by stress, heat and sweat.

Heredity is a big factor in whether or not an infant gets eczema. If mum or dad have eczema, their baby is a lot more likely to develop it, too. If both parents have eczema, the likelihood that their infant will have it too is about 50%.



Fortunately, most children outgrow the itchy irritation of eczema before school age. A small number of children will have eczema into adulthood. Remissions do occur and can last for years, although the tendency to have dry skin often lingers

What triggers eczema in one infant won’t necessarily trigger it in another. However, there are some common eczema triggers to avoid, including:

  • Saliva where a baby dribbles
  • Dry skin. This is often caused by low humidity, especially during winter when homes are well heated and the air is dry. Dry skin can make a baby’s eczema worse.
  • Irritants. Scratchy wool clothes, perfumes, body soaps, laundry detergents and fabric conditioners can all trigger a baby’s eczema flares.
  • Stress. Children with baby eczema may react to stress by flushing, which can lead to itchy, irritated skin — and an increase in eczema symptoms.
  • Heat and sweat. Both heat and sweating can make the itch of infant eczema worse.
  • Allergens. Some allergens in foods can trigger eczema flare-ups in those who are sensitive to these. When this is the case avoiding the identified allergen can help lessen the likelihood of an eczema flare-up.

There are a lot of good products in the market to help, but unfortunately most of them contain steroids, and even the steroids make the itchiness pass, which is a relief, the fact that putting steroids into a child skin will make his body dependable of those steroids and hide the problem, not solve it.

Speaking on my experience as an eczema person with really dry skin in my hands, specially during winter, I found that the Medihoney® by Comvita, really helps and relieves the itchiness and treats.

And another plus side besides being made with natural ingredients is it can be used in babies and children, from 3 months onward!

Currently I am using the Medihoney® Derma Cream as a prevention for Winter. It creates a barrier against anything harmful and has no smell. 
I apply a bit on my toddler cheeks, he sometimes gets dry skin there. You feel the skin moisture but it will penetrate and leave the skin treated and soft.
