Hand Eczema Management in Babies

Hand Eczema Management in Babies

Eczema is an acute skin condition that affects one out of 10 children. The hands are a common part for eczema since they’re often exposed and susceptible to eczema triggers. Hand eczema, or hand dermatitis, indicates any types of eczema that develop on the hands. If a child has eczema on hands, consult with your doctor for proper diagnosis and treatment. Eczema is chronic and can’t be cured, but it can be controlled and managed. The key to prohibit eczema flare-ups is to treat symptoms as soon as they emerge.
