It is important to determine your personal eczema triggers. It might be a particular type of soap, perfume or fabric that causes you to have a flare. Excess sweat as well as stressful situations can also be triggers. Once you determine what your triggers are, you can start avoiding them to find relief.
Do you have eczema on your hands or wrists? Cold winter weather can be really brutal on these areas if they are not properly protected. The cold, dry air associated with winter can increase the dryness of your skin. Of course, this can cause a flare-up of your eczema. To help prevent this from happening, rub a ointment-based moisturizer on your hands and wrists. When you go outside, wear gloves for added protection.
