When Should I See a Doctor About Baby Eczema?

Don't just assume your baby has eczema -- get a medical diagnosis first. This not only eases your mind; it can help you treat your baby's eczema more effectively.

Once you know infant eczema is what you're dealing with, keep an eye on your baby's condition and call your doctor if:

  • Your baby doesn't respond to treatment within a week of starting over-the-counter hydrocortisone creams. Prescription treatment may be necessary.
  • A yellow or light brown crust or pus-filled blisters appear on top of the eczema. This could be the sign of a bacterial infection that needs antibiotics. Contact your doctor.
  • Your baby is exposed to anyone with cold sores or genital herpes, both of which your baby is more likely to contract.
