Most patients with eczema already know how important it is to moisturize their skin. But, what many do not know is the proper way to moisturize it. For starters, use a product that is unscented and contains no chemicals, as this can bother your skin. Also, be sure to moisturize frequently, especially after you shower.
If you have to use rubber or latex gloves, put on a pair of thin cotton gloves before you put the rubber or latex gloves on. This will help avoid a reaction to the rubber or latex and will help keep your hands protected from the sweat that these gloves can cause.
When you dust at home, use clean, moistened cloths. That way, the dust will better adhere to the cloth being used. When you dry dust, you simply move dust into the air again where it will be inhaled or settle on surfaces, thus leading to flare-ups.
