Struggling with itchy and irritated eczema-prone skin? Try these simple tips and over-the-counter eczema creams, soaps and skincare products to soothe, rebuild and repair your child’s skin

Looking for eczema creams in Singapore to help your little one’s eczema or atopic dermatitis? Often, these patches of inflamed, itchy skin can appear red, cracked or rough, and may even have blisters. If you suspect your child has eczema, it’s always best to consult your doctor. If your child’s eczema does not respond to over-the-counter eczema creams, if their condition worsens or if the skin has become infected, they may need a stronger prescription-only eczema product or steroid cream.

Help alleviate eczema symptoms with these tips:

  • Bathe your child in soothing lukewarm water.
  • Use a mild soap or a non-soap cleanser when washing.
  • After a bath gently pat skin dry with a towel (don’t rub the skin which can irritate it and tear the skin).
  • Follow the golden 3-minute rule: “lock in” moisture by applying moisturiser within 3 minutes of bathing.
  • Moisturise daily with a good skin-barrier-healing moisturiser.
  • Choose your child’s clothing wisely: avoid rough, synthetic and scratchy fibres in favour of cotton and soft fabrics.
  • Keep your little one’s fingernails short to prevent their nails from breaking the skin if they scratch too hard.
  • Keep a diary of what your child’s eczema triggers and skin irritants might be; these can range from harsh soaps, detergents, shampoos, and disinfectants, to things in their diet like dairy products, eggs, soy and wheat, or allergens like pets and pollen.

What causes eczema?

Unfortunately, the causes of eczema still remain unknown, and there are no cures or treatment options for eczema. However, what can help are eczema creams and products that are designed to control and minimise inflammation, while moisturising skin and building its natural protective barrier. We’ve sorted out some of the best eczema creams in Singapore, which aim to soothe and minimise symptoms of atopic dermatitis or eczema in order to heal the affected skin and prevent flare-ups of itchiness and other eczema symptoms.

Do note that some over-the-counter eczema creams contain steroids such as hydrocortisone. Always check with a doctor or paediatrician before applying these eczema creams on a baby’s skin.
