what is eczema?
It sounds like eczema (also called atopic dermatitis), a skin rash that often appears in the first year of life. Eczema usually shows up on a baby's forehead, cheeks, and scalp (sound like Harith's problems), but it can spread to the arms, legs, chest, or other parts of the body.Your baby's rash might look like dry, thickened, scaly skin, or it might be made up of tiny red bumps that can blister, ooze, or become infected if scratched. Eczema isn't contagious, but because it's intensely itchy, scratching can be a problem.
What causes eczema?
No one knows for sure, but we do know that the tendency to have eczema is often inherited. So your baby is more likely to have it if you or a close family member has had eczema, asthma, or allergies (mcm abah..allergic to seafood). Eczema is not an allergic reaction to a substance, but it can be provoked by allergens in your baby's environment or diet — or in your diet if you're breastfeeding. The rash can also be aggravated by heat, irritants that come in contact with your baby's skin (like wool or the chemicals in some soaps, lotions, and detergents), changes in temperature, and dry skin.
After reading some article..mama think we should bring harith to see pediatric dermatologi at KPJ Ipoh...can abah?
