Should your eczema start to bother you, do not itch, no matter how tempted you are to do so. Scratching not only makes itching worse, but it can actually irritate your skin and even cause infection. Try to find other ways to deal with the itching; apply cold compresses to the affected area or use medications.
Here is one deep treatment for the red, dry, itchy skin caused by eczema. When preparing for bed wash your hands with a mild soap, rinse with warm water and gently pat them dry. Slather on a thick layer of petroleum jelly all over your hands. Pull on some thin cotton gloves and hit the sack. The next morning your hands will be smoother and less itchy.
Most patients with eczema already know how important it is to moisturize their skin. But, what many do not know is the proper way to moisturize it. For starters, use a product that is unscented and contains no chemicals, as this can bother your skin. Also, be sure to moisturize frequently, especially after you shower.
Consider getting rid of your carpets and throw rugs throughout your house. Carpet and rugs are known for harboring dust mites, allergens and other microscopic irritants which can cause an eczema flair-up. So consider hardwood floors or a low pile carpet if you absolutely must have carpet in your house.
