Babies can develop dry, flaky skin as well as cradle cap in their first few months of life. In most cases, it will resolve by 6 months of age. In some cases the cause for skin problems can be the formula you are using such as an allergic reaction, a body wash or bad hygiene.
Eczema is usually caused by an allergic reaction. It is genetic & it will never fully go away but can be kept at bay with proper diet or staying away from the allergen causing the flare up. Eczema is small red bumps that start on the neck and upper back and extend down to the torso and into the arms and legs. These spots usually are accompanied by dry skin. The bumps may even fill with fluid and burst open when irritated. For a infant suffering from Eczema, we do recommend trying a Hypoallergenic formula as the proteins are hydrolyzed (meaning broken into to smaller pieces) and easier to digest, parents have found this has helped with eczema breakout. The use of a Goat Milk Soap & lotion have also proven benefits to helping the skin be less inflamed.
How Do Goat Milk Soap & Lotions Help?
Goat milk contains alpha-hydroxy acids such as lactic acid which help remove dead skin cells from your skin’s surface. This leaves new cells on the surface of your skin that are smoother and younger looking. Water-based soaps may use harsh chemical acids to accomplish this, frequently with skin-damaging results.
Goat milk contains many vitamins, but is particularly high in Vitamin A, which is necessary to repair damaged skin tissue, and maintain healthy skin. There have been several medical studies showing that creams made with Vitamin A reduce lines and wrinkles, control acne. Water-based soaps can be artificially fortified with vitamins, but most aren’t.
Goat milk contains important minerals for the skin such as selenium. Selenium is believed by scientists to have an important role in preventing skin cancer. Selenium can also help prevent damage to the skin from excessive time in the sun.
