Eczema not only plagues many adult patients for a long time, but babies’ eczema is a major annoyance for mothers. What are the causes and initial symptoms of babies’ eczema? Is avoiding certain foods effective for babies’ eczema? What is the relationship between babies’ eczema and probiotics?
Probiotics—the root cause of babies’ eczema
When a pregnant woman has parturition, the fetus can take up abundant probiotics through the mother’s vagina from the mother’s body (including Bifidobacterium and lactic acid bacteria), and store them in the baby’s own body. However, if using Caesarean section to give birth, the baby may lack some of the probiotics that the others’ have. In addition, the wound through surgery may necessitate the need for the mother to take antibiotics, which will have an effect on mothers, who are unable to feed breast milk to newborn babies, therefore it will reduce the chance of babies receiving probiotics. So, what would happen if the babies lacked probiotics?
70% of immune system cells in our body come from the intestines, while probiotics in the intestines have a crucial effect on newborn babies for developing a self-immune system. For newborn babies and young children aged 0 to 3 years, it is the golden age of developing a healthy gut and probiotic microbiota. If babies lack probiotics in the intestines, this may cause babies to develop eczema.
Symptoms of babies’ eczema in the early and late stages
For newborn babies born by Caesarean section, mothers should pay attention to the skin condition of babies especially pay attention to whether babies have appeared some early symptoms of eczema. Eczema in babies in the early stage will have erythema on the skin, after a period of time, erythema will turn into a raised rash which the babies would feel tingling, and cause babies to cry and a sense of uneasiness.
Babies’ eczema after early stages will have different symptoms, for example, redness and dryness skins, and scaling skins. The other symptoms include thickening, discoloration, and swelling of the skin, the skin around the eyes and face turning black, the skin around the mouth or ears becoming abnormal, etc., eczema constitutes long-term health and mental burden on babies and moms which absolutely needs to be faced.
The reminder of avoiding certain food for babies’ eczema
Avoiding certain food helps a lot with babies’ eczema. Children over the age of two can drink fresh milk instead of baby formula milk powder as it can possibly lead to constipation in young children, which can worsen the symptoms of eczema. If circumstances permit, feeding breast milk is always the best option. On the other hand, if babies’ eczema becomes severe, one must avoid eating eggs. Babies whose symptoms are light, should also eat fully cooked and light egg dishes, such as steamed eggs rather than eggs cooked with high oil content and half-cooked eggs such as sunny-side-up.
However, avoiding certain food mostly alleviate the worsening effect of babies’ eczema, and most of them only targets the symptoms rather than the causes, so we must cooperate with other therapies to treat babies’ eczema.

When the mother encounters difficulties in childbirth, improper fetal position, or the fetus is wrapped around the neck by the umbilical cord, Caesarean section is often the most ideal for the safety of the mother and child, but non-vaginal birth may cause babies to lack probiotics and become a cause of eczema and other diseases.
