Tips Taking Care Of Eczema Skin


Eczema or dermatitis is a generalized term for skin rashes that are the result of an allergic reaction. Eczema symptoms are small skin lesions that are very itchy and could become red and inflamed when scratched. Eczema lesions can be very itchy and disrupt normal activities, scratching often ruptures fluid filled lesions and could lead to skin infection if not treated right away. At present, there is no cure for eczema.

This skin condition may run in families and also if an individual has a history of asthma or hay fever. Eczema is non-contagious and can be managed even at home with simple techniques.

Here are some tips on taking care of eczema:

    Avoid substances or objects that can cause eczema. Upon diagnosis of your type of eczema, you will eventually learn that there are substances that you are irritated to. Some people can have an eczema attack upon exposure to chemical cleaners, soaps, shampoos, gasoline, oil, lotions and some solvents. If exposure to these substances is imminent especially at work, use protective clothing to shield your skin. Use a mild soap to wash your hands and skin exposed to the irritating substance and dry your hands completely.

    Use a mild soap for your hands as well as in the bath. Soaking in warm bath water can make your skin absorb moisture and this could be great in keeping skin healthy and moisturized. Apply a moisturizer quickly after bathing to lock in moisture in the skin.

    Learn to manage itching by applying pressure on the affected area and not scratching it. Itching can also be prevented by adding moisture onto the skin.

    Fabrics can also be a cause of eczema and thus clothes made of cotton is the best alternative.

    Avoid activities that can make you sweaty and hot. Sweating can irritate the skin more and can increase eczema development.

    There is a possible link to eczema and stress. People with eczema seem to develop this skin condition when stressed. Learn to manage stress by doing activities that can relieve stress or control it to manage your eczema symptoms.

    Follow your doctor’s advice in managing your eczema symptoms even when your skin has healed. Your dermatologist may advice diet changes, simple stress management activities and also a skin regimen to help take care of your skin to prevent eczema flare ups. Medications must also be continued and your prescription updated every time you consult your dermatologist.

    Prevent skin infection by keeping eczema affected area dry and clean. Never scratch or pick at your lesions to prevent infection. Oral or topical antibiotics may be prescribed by your doctor as well.

    Keep healthy by eating healthy and taking supplements. You may suffer from low immunity as a result of some medications like steroids and immunosuppresants that your doctor may prescribe so it is best to increase your resistance by staying healthy.

Having eczema is not the end of the world. You can still enjoy many activities and continue with work or school especially when you know how to take care of your eczema symptoms.
