Oatmeal is a good way to treat skin conditions, according to the dermatologist Dr. David Lim. The antioxidant properties of colloidal oatmeal can help prevent the early signs and symptoms of eczema on infants. Just like coconut oil, it is also gentle enough for babies and young children to tolerate.
One of the best ways to use colloidal oatmeal to treat eczema is to make a bath. Just add two cups of ground oatmeal onto the bath and soak in it for around 15 minutes. It will also ensure that your baby gets a good night’s sleep without being bothered by the itchiness.
