We all know someone who suffers from Eczema, and that maybe you too! It can sometimes seem like a curse when you can’t stop scratching yourself, but there are many things you can do to help yourself.
There are several more practical means of controlling your eczema. Sometimes a trip to the doctor will help, or even a visit to the dermatologist can be helpful. In any case, you should be informed about what is causing your eczema and then consider your options for treating it.
But, you may be wondering, what causes Eczema in the first place? Your skin is a very sensitive organ and responds to various triggers. So you may want to learn what they are and avoid them altogether or learn how to avoid them.
Allergies to animals, to plants, to dust, or even to certain allergens are among the causes of Eczema. Another common cause is stress. As we get older our body goes through changes that stress us out, and these can include eczema flare-ups.
If you find that stress is your problem, then maybe you need to step up your game by learning how to relax more, or take time off if necessary. Part of the problem with stress is that it makes your skin more vulnerable to infections, but there are other things that cause stress. Lack of sleep, not getting enough exercise, lack of love and attention, all of these things can also trigger your eczema.
Lotions for Eczema are available to help you manage your condition. When applying lotions for Eczema you can use plain aloe vera, or you can use lotions that contain either tea tree oil or eucalyptus oil. Tea tree oil is often used because it has some antibacterial properties, and eucalyptus oil is very effective at reducing eczema symptoms.
Your diet is also an important part of your treatment. Avoid eating foods that are high in fat, salt, sugar, and caffeine. Instead, try to eat less meat, and eat more foods that are rich in antioxidants, vitamins, and minerals.
Try adding new things to your diet as well. There are now plenty of foods that can reduce your Eczema symptoms.
Have you been drinking soda? If you have been then you need to start limiting your intake. Do you wear clothes that are very tight or very revealing?
If you don’t wear tight clothes then add a few inches of cami to your wardrobe. The more coverage you can give yourself the better.
Other causes of Eczema include food allergies, weather conditions, hormone fluctuations, and the wrong makeup. Whatever the cause you need to learn to cope with it and find some solutions that work for you. Keep in mind that whatever the cause is, you will most likely get better with time but for now, what can you do?
