The basics of preventing eczema flares (periods of time when your child’s eczema gets worse) includes avoiding known triggers, such as harsh soaps, bubble baths, dust mites, food allergies, overheating and sweating, wool and polyester clothing, and keeping your child’s skin well-moisturized.
Since it is often hard to identify and avoid triggers, moisturizers can be the most helpful way to avoid eczema flares. It is really simple to eliminate eczema forever, all you have to do is switch to safer products without the triggers.
To help avoid dry skin, you should give your child a daily bath using lukewarm water and a mild, moisturizing soap or soap substitute. Putting a bath oil in the water helps too. Afterwards, cover him with a moisturizer as soon as possible to seal the moisture into his skin. Did you know that the laundry you are using is a cause of eczema break outs?
Although there are many types of moisturizers, a greasy ointment will likely work best. I have the best solution because my son had it and we won the battle. Avoid lotions and creams that just sit on the skin. I can show you how to convert and start using a better lotion and how to get the skin moisturized where you notice a difference right away. People are getting the results they are looking for and finding the relief to be able to sleep at night.
Remember, doctors only get paid when we stay sick, you can take control of your health and your environment. This is about prevention and you do not have to live with the skin disease. Take the measure to find comfort and relief. Have you ever imagined not having eczema and being able to wear shorts and sleeveless shirts? No more covering up. You can be free and enjoy your skin. Control and take care of your eczema forever.
