Mettalusso knows that dealing with eczema can be frustrating and lonely

Dealing with symptoms of eczema can feel frustrating and lonely.

Here are some basic treatment and care tips to help manage these skin conditions.

  1. Hydration is Key: Keep your skin moisturized with fragrance-free, hypoallergenic creams. You may have to try different lotions and creams to see which work best. This may also change during the seasons. Apply moisturizer immediately after bathing to lock in moisture.
  2. Mind Your Cleansers and Cleansers: Opt for mild, SLS-free cleansers to avoid irritation. Don't over treat or over dry skin in showers and baths.
  3. Fabrics Matter: Wear loose-fitting, breathable clothing made from soft fabrics like cotton. Avoid rough materials that can exacerbate irritation.
  4. Do Your Best With Triggers: Identifying them is key and Step #1. Steer clear of temptations and those you have identified. Fabrics, detergents, or specific foods and emotions can all play a role. Keep a journal to track patterns and potential allergens.
  5. Prescription Treatments: There are prescriptions and also OTC remedies available Consult a dermatologist for the right prescription and how to balance it with a store bought OTC.
  6. Emotion Management Techniques: Stress can worsen symptoms, so incorporate relaxation techniques such as deep breathing or meditation into your daily routine.

As I always say when it comes to skincare "Everyone is Exactly Different". This is the best and most general advice on dealing with Eczema on a daily basis. You definitely want to see a good dermatologist to help you sort out the best specific plan for you.
