Signs Your Baby Has Sensitive Skin:
Babies are delicate little creatures and their skin is no different, their skin is much more sensitive than an adults and will be prone to irritations as it takes approximately two years for their skin barrier to completely develop.
Babies with sensitivities are more at risk due to consistent reactions to products, foods, fragrance, detergents and even their environment.
We have listed 6 common signs and symptoms that may appear and what to look out for are:
Rash or redness: A baby with sensitive skin may develop a rash or red patches after using certain soaps, detergents, or other skin products but a common cause of redness is repetitive nappy changes.
Dryness or flakiness: Sensitive skin can be dry and flaky, leading to itching and discomfort.
Itching or scratching: Babies may scratch their skin or rub their face or body if they are uncomfortable or itchy that could be caused by dampness, yeast infections or contact dermatitis.
