Why Is My Baby's Eczema Worse in the Summer?

While many of us are relieved the dry winters are ending, many moms are beginning to worry about the eczema flareups coming in the summer.

The summer heat can lead to sweating and worsen eczema in little ones. We've rounded up 7 tips on how to prevent eczema flareups in babies and kids!

Tip #1 Soak up the sweat

Help your baby stay dry throughout the day and wipe away excess sweat. We highly recommend washcloths which can be easily stored in diaper bags, strollers, and cars for on the go use!
