How to prevent eczema flares?

Eczema, also known as Atopic Dermatitis, is a persistent, itchy, autoimmune skin condition that mostly affects children but also affects adults. The specific etiology is unknown, and a variety of factors, including genetic and environmental factors, may contribute to the development of eczema. Eczema may occur anywhere on the body and its distribution varies with age, but it is red, dry, itchy, and irritating wherever it emerges. Eczema has a major physical and emotional impact on people who are affected by it. If you or your kid suffers from eczema, you are all too aware of the symptoms of swelling, dryness, itching, and irritation, which cause everything from missed work and school to worry and decreased activity level.
Food, dry skin, scratching, stress, pets, certain smells, and particular fabrics are just a few of the factors that might trigger eczema flare-ups. While most doctors will simply prescribe an ointment or steroid eczema cream and send you home, these often only provide temporary relief, thus, it’s important to know how to prevent eczema flares. Here are some important tips:
1. Don’t use harsh soaps, detergents, or solvents.

2. Avoid sudden changes in temperature or humidity.

3. Wear gloves when you go out into the cold.

4. Avoid hot and long baths.

5. Try not to sweat or get too hot.

6. Avoid scratchy materials, such as wool.

7. Moisturize your body at least twice a day.

8. Pay attention to foods that might trigger symptoms.

9. Practice stress reduction techniques.
