Baby C’s face is now cleared of eczema. Although it is not 100% flawless yet, it is nevertheless improving and her complexion is glowing now. I did not really alter my diet (Baby C is still breastfed exclusively) and have been drinking milk 2-3 times a day, I still eat an egg a day, I still eat peanut butter and nuts almost everyday, beef and occasionally eat prawns. What I find helpful to keep the eczema at bay is to keep her face clean and moisturized. Heat is also the number one culprit, so keeping her cool all the time is important too.
Baby C sleeps downstairs during the day, where there is no air cond. Whenever she is sweaty, I will wipe her face and body. I wipe her face at least 4-5 times a day with filtered water. Whilst her face is still slightly damp, I apply Aqueous cream (or Aqua cream) generously all over her face, paying attention to the eczema prone areas.
This tub of Aqueous cream only costs RM15 (made in Malaysia!). I apply it generously all over my body too everyday!
Baby C’s face is now glowing, is not blotchy and does not feel rough anymore.
Baby C is half awake here. She has double eyelids on both her eyes. However, the wierd thing is that when her eyes are fully opened, the double eyelids will vanish! I hope the double eyelids will be a permanent feature soon, whether she’s half awake or fully awake! (like Vien’s Cassie whose double eyelids only appeared at 3 months old).
