The boy cried all night. He had that terrible allergic rash on his skin that itched constantly, so the kid tried to scratch it. Only in the morning did the parents find out that the boy scratched his blood. During the night they were too tired to notice and too worried about easing the child’s pain. In the morning the boy fell asleep, but the parents could no longer sleep. The mother had to take care of older children, prepare them for school and the father had to guide the children to school and go to work. When the children came to the kitchen and saw their parents, they were terrified. Their parents looked and moved like zombies.
Sound familiar? It happened to you? Have you tried everything to help your baby fall asleep and sleep a little alone? If yes, read on. There are some simple ways to relieve the baby’s itch and to prevent it from scratching the blood.
The rash on your baby’s skin can be a symptom of food allergy or other allergy caused, for example, by the detergent you use, soap or shampoo, the presence of pets, dust or dust mites and many other allergens. If so, you’ll need to find the cause, but before you do that, let’s look at how to reduce the itchy effect of the symptoms.
One of the best ways to relieve someone of the itch is by using a starch bath. To prepare the starch bath, you will need:
1 tablespoon of starch (potato starch and rice starch are best)
2-3 teaspoons of cold water
1/2 l (about 1 liter) of boiling water.
First mix the starch with cold water. Then pour it on boiling water and mix well. Boil for a while until it is thick.
Pour the mixture into the tank and add water to reach a temperature of 37 degrees C / 99 degrees F.
Bathe your baby for about 15 minutes WITHOUT other cosmetics.
It helps very often.
The next thing to remember is that itching can be triggered and increased by inappropriate clothing. Pajamas or nightwear can be too hard and therefore irritate the baby’s skin. You must pay particular attention to dressing your baby with soft and natural cotton clothes that not only do not irritate the skin, but also help to breathe. The same goes for bed clothes. The sheets should be as soft as possible, so natural cotton seems like the best solution again.
Finally, we must protect the baby from scratches during sleep. Children and adults alike scratch the itchy places without waking up very often and can injure themselves in this way. The easiest way to protect your baby from scratches on his body is to put soft material gloves on his hands. In this way, even if they scratch, they will not be damaged.
These are obviously basic things, but believe me, they can save you many sleepless nights if you apply them.
