Tips to Reduce the Re-occurrence of Eczema
Eczema is a chronic inflammatory skin condition. It is often identified by dry skin with the appearance of scaly red blotches causing itching and tingling. These red blotches occur most often near the flex or muscles. The most common type of eczema is called atopic dermatitis which is often associated with direct or indirect contact/reaction to an allergen.
Many people prone to eczema are also often prone to food and seasonal allergies.
The specific causes of eczema remain unknown. It is believed to develop due to a combination of hereditary and environmental factors. Atopic dermatitis occurs when the skin is directly or indirectly exposed to irritants and allergens such as soaps, house dust mites, deodorants, detergents, certain fabrics (wool), etc. Most people whom have suffered from eczema found chronic symptoms persist when the skin is dry or subjected to dry climates. Arid environments, excessive sweating or even stress may exacerbate the symptoms. If the protective barrier of the skin is damaged the skin loses its moisture. The skin dries out and becomes more vulnerable to environmental aggressions.
Try the following to prevent the symptoms of eczema:
Avoid aggressive and irritating cleansers. Wash your face using a gentle, soothing and non‐irritating cleanser such as GOGE Lifestyle’s Purifying Foaming Cleanser. This will help rid the skin of all impurities while still protecting.
Immediately relieve the irritation and itching. To avoid aggravating the symptoms of eczema; soothe itching and irritation with GOGE Lifestyle’s Sensitive Skin Cream.
