Babies develop many skin conditions during the first few months of life.
Some skin conditions are caused by normal hormonal changes or immature pores, while others are caused by inflammation or, rarely, an infection. Some issues might get aggravated with certain soaps etc.
Issues that may occur in babies due to keeping babies unclean or cleaning them with harsh chemical products
Using a gentle, unscented detergent when washing the baby’s clothes is essential as babies can be very sensitive to perfumes and harsh soaps. Doing so helps in preventing allergies and sensitivities.
