Care and increase skin resistance properly
– Hello, doctor. In the hot season, families with newborns are always concerned when the child is often fussy due to itching due to heat rash, diaper rash. So what causes this skin condition?
Newborn skin is very delicate and sensitive, the skin barrier is still developing and is prone to rapid dehydration. When the environment around the baby is too hot, the skin folds such as armpits and neck are compressed and promote sweat glands to work harder and become blocked.
Along with that is the imbalance of the microflora on the skin, which makes the child’s skin vulnerable to bacteria that cause fungus, infection, … that’s when the rash, itching or diaper rash will appear and at that time the child’s skin resistance is declining.

– The doctor mentioned skin resistance, so is there any way to increase skin resistance for babies?
First of all, it is important to pay attention to the daily care and hygiene of the skin with gentle, specialized bathing products and lotions for children’s skin. After bathing, it is necessary to moisturize the baby’s skin to keep it soft and balance the moisture on the skin. Especially to support healthy skin resistance, recently on forums many mention of products containing Prebiotic ingredients.
For many parents, prebiotics are a relatively new concept. On human skin, there is always a microbiome including: harmful bacteria and beneficial bacteria. Probiotics are beneficial bacteria, also known as probiotics. And Prebiotics are food that nourish beneficial bacteria – Probiotics grow. Therefore, Prebiotics are very important to balance the microflora on the skin, promote the growth of beneficial bacteria, thereby destroying harmful bacteria, helping the young skin to be healthier.

– Currently, the Bobini brand has researched and effectively used Prebiotic fiber ingredients. How do doctors feel about Bobini compared to non-Prebiotic shower gel products?
To make an assessment of each product, there will be its own advantages, but with products with Prebiotics, I think this is a new and necessary breakthrough for young skin, especially babies when the skin barrier is not yet complete.
Bobini has researched and immediately applied the most effective Prebiotic ingredient to specialized products for babies such as shower gel, moisturizer, shampoo, shower gel, etc. This helps children’s skin to be cared for more carefully and healthier with a “dual” skin protection mechanism: cleansing and moisturizing. Prebiotics will act directly on the skin, contributing to limiting heat rash and itching.

– To summarize, what solutions do doctors have to send to parents when taking care of newborn skin in the hot season?
First, raise the baby in a cool environment. The second is to pay attention to nutrition for children to ensure health. The third is skin care, bathing and skin care for children with specialized, quality products that are dermatologically tested for safety. Finally, clothes and diapers used for children must be soft and hygienic.
