With winter on the way and the days growing colder, those suffering from eczema will often begin to experience flare ups as their skin begins to adjust to the new weather patterns. Painful sores, constant itching and inflammation can be a frustrating and inconvenient experience for many. Learn how to manage and prevent seasonal flare ups below.
What Causes Eczema Flare Ups?
Unfortunately, there’s no definitive cause that leads to an outbreak. While some may develop a rash after coming into contact with an irritant (typically referred to as contact dermatitis), others may experience a flare up due to a compromised immune system or sensitivity to environmental changes. Regardless of the source, there’s no denying that the symptoms of eczema are unpleasant, making treatment and relief in a timely manner important.
What Can I Do?
As with most skin irritation conditions, prevention is your best form of defense against symptom outbreaks. Protect your skin from cold weather flare ups with the following tips:
- Moisturize daily with gentle, scent free lotions
- Use a cool mist humidifier to combat dry air during the colder months
- Dress in thin cotton layers to avoid overheating
- Remove damp clothing as soon as possible
- Practice a skincare routine that involves applying sunscreen, even on cooler days
- Avoid scratchy fabrics that may cause irritation by rubbing against the skin
If you are already experiencing certain symptoms of a flareup such as redness, inflammation, or flaky patches of skin, it may be time to look at external methods of relief. Naturally based cream like Hunaza® can help to alleviate painful irritation and keep your skin comfortable year round.
