Recently Charlie has had some ezcema on his arms and legs, and he’s been waking up early because he’s so itchy. I had a feeling that his wool Merino Kids Sleep Sack might be the culprit, and it looks like wool is definitely a trigger. Too bad because he loves that sleep sack!

His eczema isn’t surprising since I’ve had it for most of my life, and it tends to be hereditary. Luckily we’ve been able to treat it by bathing him in cooler water and using Baby Naturals Eczema Cream and Cortizone 10 Intensive Healing Ezcema Lotion. Charlie calls it his “special cream” and loves putting it on. We also have to keep pants on him at all times, otherwise he becomes a scratching machine.

These are some tips to prevent and treat eczema with at home remedies and over the counter products:
