If you notice that your baby's skin has become more dry, and that, in addition, scales, cracks, and inflamed rashes begin to appear, mainly in the areas of the neck, arms and legs, it may be that your baby has eczema or atopic dermatitis, a very common disease in children, due in part to genetics, diet, and environmental factors.
Introducing fish into a baby's diet before he is nine months old could reduce the likelihood of eczema, a skin disorder that increasingly affects children in Western countries. This has been the result of an investigation carried out by Swedish scientists.
Cases of children from 5,000 families, from 6 to 12 months, were studied. It is confirmed that the genetic component of the disorder is the most significant, so families are advised to avoid the use of strong soaps or detergents on the skin of babies, especially those that are predisposed to the disease. On the other hand, scientists found that babies who ate fish, a food rich in omega-3 fatty acids, had a 25% lower risk of atopic dermatitis. Keeping a pet bird at home was also found to significantly reduce the risk of eczema.Vilma Medina. Editor of our site
