There is no known way to prevent eczema, but good skin care with a daily bath and use of a moisturizer twice daily can help strengthen the skin against all kinds of irritants. Get to know your child’s triggers and avoid them as much as possible. Finally, treat patches of eczema with medications as soon as they appear, since this can prevent more severe rashes.
