Firstly, what is Eczema?

Eczema is a skin condition that causes dry and itchy patches of skin all over the face and body. According to the National Eczema Society, it currently affects one in five children and one in ten adults in the United Kingdom.

Atopic eczema (atopic dermatitis) is one of the most common forms of eczema, a condition that causes the skin to become itchy, dry and cracked. People with atopic eczema usually have periods when symptoms are less noticeable, as well as periods when symptoms become more severe (flare-ups).

It can become very debilitating and negatively affect people’s self-esteem and confidence during these flare-ups.

What Triggers Eczema?

Atopic eczema can have many triggers, some of these may or may not been known to you. These triggers cause flare-ups and can be caused by a variety of things from the environment to what you had for lunch that day.

Sometimes eczema can run in families and can be associated with conditions such as hay fever and asthma.

But your eczema could be triggered by things such as the soap you use, a new washing powder, a drop or rise in temperature, stress or even unknown food allergies.

How Do I Treat Eczema?

There are many amazing stories online where you will see a before and after of someone suffering with eczema and it’s all down to cutting out dairy or gluten. But for most people, the techniques for treating eczema predominantly lie within their own self-care and management this can vary from stopping scratching to using daily emollient creams.
