All you need to know about dealing with Eczema

Only those suffering with Eczema can understand how hard it can be to deal with.

Between flare-ups, the skin tends to be dry and itchy resulting in an irresistible urge to scratch.
Eczema flare-ups are mostly triggered by environmental factors.

Eczema Triggers include:

  • Perfumes
  • Stress
  • Soaps and detergents
  • Animals
  • Pollens
  • Sweating
  • House dust mites
  • Chemical agents
  • Cosmetics
  • Animals( fur, hair and saliva)

How to deal with Eczema?

Get a good night’s sleep – People living with eczema often find the urge to itch at night. Try keeping the bedroom window open and keep any heating to a minimum. Use cotton bedding as it tends to irritate skin less than other mixed fabrics.

Watch what you wear – When choosing what to wear you should consider the fabric and it’s fit. Some clothing can irritate your skin resulting flare-ups.

Minimize stress – Stress can cause eczema to become inflamed so managing this can help you control your eczema. Making sure you get enough sleep and talking with others that live with ezcema can really be helpful.

Moisturize – Often, keeping your skin moisturized is the key to managing your eczema. Use a plain unscented moisturizer to keep your skin soft and moisturized.

Manage weather changes – Eczema reacts badly to rapid changes in temperature. High humidity can lead to symptoms similar to prickly heat which may dry the skin out. Things like central heating in winter can also be a trigger.

Drink lots of water before, after and during exercise. Those with eczema will have inherently dry skin so it’s important to hydrate yourself when exercising to replace the water.
