Weather Conditions And Air-borne Allergens:
Climatic conditions such as pollution or smog will often cause Eczema to flare. Eczema is more common in industrialized countries and in urban areas. Hot, humid weather as well as cold weather will also have adverse effects on Eczema. Very low humidity can aggravate dry skin. Humidifiers are useful if there is central heating in your home. Cool temperature bedrooms are helpful. Ideally both school and the workplace should be cool and as dust free as possible. Skin contact with chemicals and dirt should be minimized.
House dust, dust mites, moulds, pollen, and animal dander from pets are all known to aggravate Eczema. Vacuuming of carpets, curtains, and bedding should be done at least weekly. Washing the bedding weekly at high temperature and higher indoor humidity inhibits mites and benefits atopic skin. Fluffy toys need to be washed and shaken outdoors regularly to minimize the accumulation of dust mites. A reduction in house dust mites has been shown to reduce the severity of Eczema.
