Understanding the skin of your newborn baby, the rashes, cradle cap, and infantile eczema that can occur, can sometimes be a worry for parents.
The first month babies require lot of adaptation by the baby as well as the parents. After spending 9 months in a safe, warm atmosphere of mother’s womb, the baby faces the world for the first time. The baby is not yet adapted to the outside environment. It takes some time to get adjusted to the external conditions. During this phase the skin of the baby, which is very delicate faces a few issues. The skin of the infant shows signs of irritation in the form of rashes, redness and eruptions.
The skin infections in the infants are enough to make the parents tense and anxious. Here are a few acute remedies to look at first.
