Frequently Asked Questions
Unfortunately, the cause of baby eczema remains unknown. The NHS says it's common for those with allergies and triggers may include diet, household irritants, harsh toiletries and temperature changes. It’s surprisingly common, with a medical study finding 1 in 5 children in the UK are affected by eczema.
As there’s often not one specific cause, it can be difficult knowing how to treat baby eczema. It's recommended to keep a diary to discover how external factors like diet can impact symptoms. It’s also important to keep skin hydrated and moisturised with a mild natural emollient such as Kokoso Baby Coconut Oil or our Baby Lotion. Avoid baby toiletries that contain harsh foaming agents and synthetic perfumes, which are known to irritate eczema-prone skin. Instead, choose gentle unfragranced, dermatologically approved baby skincare products like Kokoso Baby. Rest assured our whole range is clinically tested for use on sensitive and eczema-prone skin.
