Everything from heredity of dry/sensitive skin, to the type of products applied to to Baby's skin. It can even be a combination of things. With my oldest daughter, I discovered that it was heredity, but I also found that certain Baby products aggravated the eczema far more than others. With my other children, it was also product-based.


Baby eczema can be aggravated by scented products.. But to really take care of it you need to find the root cause which is typically food based. My kids have always had outbreaks with dairy. The more they get, the worse it is. When eliminating dairy from either breastfeeding mom's diet or older child's diet, look on your labels for things like 'cassein', 'lactose' and whey. There's more than that, but those are the two that get my kiddos. One of mine also gets breakouts when she eats too many tomato products.
