Causes of Eczema Outbreaks
Clothes using synthetic fibers such as nylon, polyester or wool tend to irritate the skin, latex, rubber and plastics should be avoided without protective cotton liners. Cotton and linen clothing and bedding are best. Residual detergents in clothes and bedding are irritating, so use less detergents and double rinse. Soap flakes (e.g. Ivory snow) may be less irritating than laundry detergents. Fabric softeners are discouraged and should be perfume free if used.

Gloves should be used to protect from water and detergents. PVC gloves are recommended for wet work and the use of cotton gloves for potentially dirty work around the house and garden will minimize the need to wash hands.
Contact with soaps, detergents, shampoos, conditioners, perfume, shaving creams as well as make up should be kept to a minimum. Soaps are alkali and are drying.
Make-up should not be applied to weeping lesions. Perfume – free cosmetics are advised and trial applications of cosmetics to small areas of normal skin before applying on to the face.
Bathing is allowed but warm water should be used. Washing with non soap cleansers are encouraged. Hot water, hard water, salt water and chlorinated water should be avoided.
Bubble baths should not be used. Pat dry and do not rub. Moisturizing after bathing is a must in order to retain water in the skin.
Controlling Eczema Outbreaks
Avoidance of conditions that cause perspiration certainly is helpful in the control of Eczema. Exercise should be performed in cool well ventilated areas. Multiple short sessions are easier on the skin.

Dyshidrotic Eczema Form Of Hand Eczema
dyshidrotic Eczema is a form of hand eczema in the form of blisters, and is probably a hereditary disease. As such, there is no specific chemicals or antigen, that you come in contact with (hence the patch test negative), but daily life is irritating your hands. Some studies more “research” level, however, so you can continue with a doctor who specializes in patch testing of allergens. The standard treatment with potent topical corticosteroids ointment, such as the skin is thick hands and lower creams do not work very well. Do you know a dermatologist right?

My daughter has Eczema and she has a small break out every now and then. Usually when I take her to the doctor they give her a cream similar to hydrocortisone or Cortaid. I was told by a friend of the family that those creams have steroids in them and can also thin your skin with excessive use. Well my daughter has had this on going break out for the 6 months off and on and I think that her body has become immune to the creams prescribed by the doctor and the over the counter creams don’t seem to work anymore. I know there has to be something all natural that I can use for her. Maybe something that I can even make at home. If anyone knows………….PLEASE HELP. I would greatly appreciate it.
I have atopic dermatitis,the medical name for eczema and I have had it for 40 + years.Here is some advice:
1.Flare ups can take time to heal.Medications keep the flare ups from getting too out of hand.My worst flare up was on my hands.I had the rash on my hands for four years;I was unsder doctor’s care the whole time.
2.There is no cure for eczema,only treatments. Forget all-natural “cures” because they DO NOT WORK!!(Remember,I’ve had this condition for over 40 years;I know from experience that
“natural” and “hypoallergenic” doesn’t mean that they are good choices for atopic skin).Having sensitive skin means that certain products,natural or not,can cause allergic reactions in the skin .
3.Get rid of all soaps,all scented products.Soaps are drying,period.Drying ingredients exacerbate the itch,which leads to scratching,whick breaks the skin,which causes the oozing,redness… The most important thing that you can do is keep the skin from getting too dry.Cleaning with Cetaphil Lotion Cleanser,or Cetaphil Bar cleanser,keeps the skin from losing too much moisture.After cleaning up,a moisturizing cream is to be applied.Cetaphil makes an excellent cream mosturizer.Some people like Eucerin cream.Water is an irritant to atopic skin,so try not to wash hands a lot;Cetaphil can be used without water,you just put it on,”lather up” and repeat,then wipe off the cleaner.
4. Cortaid with moisturizers works just as well as any prescription medication.I’ve used prescription hydrocortisone cream,Lidex and Prednisone(not recommended,because it lasts for as long as you take it,then you are left with the rash and the side effects of the steroid).I also tried Protopic and luckily hated it;it burned so I didn’t use it.I say luckily because Protopic and Elidel,the newest drugs are under investigation for causing an increased risk of skin cancer.Just remember that some flare ups last for a long time(my worst lasted for four years).Being patient is one of the hardest things to do but it is something that a person with atopic dermatitis must have.
5. Aveeno makes some great products for itchy,sensitive skin.Aveeno Bath Powder with Colloidal Oatmeal and Aveeno Bath and Shower Oil with Colloidal Oatmeal are fantastic.
6.The weepy form of eczema can be soothed with wet dressings made with Bluborro powder.The Bluborro will dry the ooze so you can deal with the rash.
7.Stay away from Vaseline,any product that contains lanolin,benzocaine,aha or sugar acids,retinols,any greasy preparation,or any cream that contains an antihistamine(oral antihistamines are okay,just not in a cream or lotion that goes directly on the skin).
8.Having excema even has an effect on the clothes that can be worn.Dermatologists prefer that their patients wear cottons and soft,natural fibers.Polyester retains perspiration which can cause problems.The soft moisture-wicking fabrics are okay.Wool is to be lined or a person will have to wear a soft layer underneath the wool(t-shirts,camisoles,pantliners)so it doesn’t touch the skin and make the skin itch.Fabric detergents and fabric softeners used to clean clothes have to be unscented.
9.Educate yourself.I started reading up on skin conditions as a teenager.Dermatologists often write books with advice on how to deal with certain conditions.I’ll list them in the sources.
10 Eczema,allergies and asthma often go hand-in-hand.An antihistamine is to be taken to deal with this.
11. My doctor said to avoid doing any wet work if at all possible(no doing dishes,no washing the car,et c.).If wet work couldnot be avoided,cotton gloves worn under rubber gloves had to be worn;the cotton gloves are available in the beauty sections of pharmacies.Lined rubber gloves are not good enough.
