Baby skin problems – Common conditions
As much as we wish it would, nothing remains perfect or forever unblemished. Because of environmental contaminants, and because your baby’s skin is not fully mature at birth, he will probably be affected by some kind of skin condition in his early years. Any number of natural catalysts such as allergies, hormones, genetics, bodily fluids, and even the weather can cause problems for the skin; but very often, something in the environment triggers an inevitable series of inflammations and irritations with which you and your baby will be forced to cope.
Not surprisingly, the number of newborns experiencing skin disorders is rising. Over 30% of unscheduled visits to the pediatrician’s office are caused by skin problems. Baby skin can be so permeable that it is easily dehydrated and infected. Because the skin is susceptible to all kinds of environmental toxins, from air pollution to chlorine in the water, we need to be especially careful not to put toxins directly on the skin through toiletry products.
A variety of minor skin conditions including pimples, rashes, scales, and bumps of other sorts, are well within the range of normal; but the associated discomfort still produces tantrums, crying, irritability, and whining that can simultaneously break your heart and send you into a panic. For the most part, there is no need for concern. These blemishes will usually go away quickly with a simple natural baby skin care treatment. There are plenty of creams, salves, and ointments to help reduce pain, sooth irritation and restore the skin to its natural state of perfect health. The products you choose should create a protective, nurturing environment without exposing your baby to unnecessary environmental contaminants like parabens and synthetic fragrances. Still, if you feel at all concerned, you should consult your doctor right away.
To prevent skin problems from recurring, you must engage in the tricky task of finding the source of the problem. While many common conditions, such as acne and eczema occur naturally, and are truly unavoidable, many more of your child’s skin conditions probably stem from the use of avoidable contaminants in impure toiletry products, non-organic foods, and contaminated water. For example, toiletry products that are formulated with irritants or bed linens that have been laundered with oily fabric softeners can aggravate baby skin. Many common skin conditions can be successfully treated and even prevented with non-pharmaceutical products under the care of a pediatrician who is predisposed to try a natural approach. Just remember that skin is a window into the body’s internal condition and mirrors its external environment. Removing exposure to toxins, surprisingly prevalent in personal care products, reduces the workload of the body’s immune system and enhances overall health.
