Many factors can cause an eczema breakout which can be especially rough on children since they may not realize that scratching only makes it worse. Here are some ways to alleviate the itch and discomfort associated with eczema.
- Some people think nothing of their dry skin until they are faced with a condition that makes it drier. The drier the skin, the most likely it is to itch and in some cases, create scarring. The best way to combat dry skin is to moisturize after every bath and shower when skin pores are the more open. Right after bathing, pat yourself dry and add moisturizer. Doing this immediately will help seal ingredients like Vitamin E and reduce the need to moisture during the day when it may not be convenient.
- Remember the old saying, you are what you eat?
Foods that are high in acidity like certain cheeses, processed meats and seeds, are considered culprits when it comes to eczema. If you have eczema or any skin ailment, a dietitian or nutritionist can help to manage a diet that is more balanced. Or you can just take Kelp supplements which are high in alkali, which balances the excess acidity to balance the excess acidity and neutralize the body.
