Your baby may have eczema
Eczema or atopic dermatitis has several visible symptoms. It often manifests as extremely dry skin on the body and face and can develop into bumps, open sores and localized red patches during flare-ups. In babies and children, these visible symptoms can cause skin to feel itchy and uncomfortable, and may alternate between periods of discomfort and relief. Symptoms of eczema can first appear in babies as young as 2 months, and slowly subside until completely disappearing when a child is around 5-6 years old.
If you notice these symptoms, consult your pediatrician.
Eczema is hereditary by nature and its probability increases based on family history.
Mustela's latest research shows that daily a application of Stelatopia products from birth(1) keeps skin properly hydrated and reduces probability of experiencing extremely dry skin and its associated itchiness by 51%(2).
Hydrating a baby's skin is so much more than just applying lotion. A skincare routine is an opportunity for parent-baby bonding and benefits both th parent and child. The latest scientific studies have shown that skin-to-skin contact instills a sense of safety and comfort and contributes to cognitive and neurosensory development.
