When playing together with the baby, suddenly the mother realizes that reddish rash appears on the baby’s skin along with itching which makes the baby so fussy. Do not rush to panic. There is a possibility that the baby’s skin is sensitive.
Causes of Sensitive Skin
Generally, the baby's skin is indeed more sensitive than adults’. This is because of relatively little production of melanin (a protein substance that gives color to the skin as well as serves to protect the skin from the sun) and a thinner layer of the baby's skin. This causes the baby's skin more sensitive to baby care products and prone to allergies.
The baby’s skin is sensitive if some skin problems appear when using baby care products that are not suitable, inappropriate water temperature when bathing or in contact with insect bites. These skin problems can include dry skin, allergies, rashes, peeling and even to infections. Sensitive skin in babies can be caused by genetic or hereditary factors.
Maintaining Sensitive Skin
To keep healthy baby’s skin, here are some things mothers can do:
Wash the baby’s clothes with detergent and baby-special fabric softener so as not to trigger a baby's sensitive skin.
