How can you avoid an eczema outbreak?


Unfortunately, there is no cure for eczema, but many things can be done to avoid an eczema outbreak. Most importantly, the skin should be kept moist by using a daily moisturiser.

 

Other ways to prevent an outbreak include:



-    Wearing 100 per cent cotton or soft fabrics - avoiding rough, scratchy fibres and tight clothing
-    Having lukewarm baths and showers using a non-soap cleanser or hypoallergenic bath oil
-    Gently patting (not rubbing) the skin dry with a soft towel after shower
-    Applying a moisturiser within three minutes after bathing to "lock in" the moisture
-    When possible, avoiding rapid changes of temperature and activities that raise a sweat
-    Removing carpets and rugs from houses (if possible) and keeping pets outside
-    Ventilating the house as often as possible
-    Avoiding stuffed toys which harbour dust mites
-    Changing bed linen regularly, using specialized dust mite prevention covers
-    Reducing daily stress
-    Learning the eczema triggers and how to avoid them

 

Doing all of this may seem bothersome, but sticking to your plan can make a big difference.
