Eczema is a common skin condition, although that does not make it less painful or distressing for the sufferer. It causes red itchy skin on various parts of your body. A flare up of eczema can be triggered by food and airborne allergies, the weather, certain fabrics used in clothing, certain metals used in jewellery, ingredients in skincare products and the ingredients in household detergents.
Ezcema trigger factors
Stress and exercise are contributing factors, although they do not specifically cause eczema. Some people react to stress by scratching, this in turn causes red itchy skin and may lead to eczema. After exercise the dried on sweat may cause itching and left for a period of time may trigger eczema. Severe eczema can be caused by a pre existing infection.
There is no cure for eczema as yet, but in many cases an outbreak can be soothed with topical eczema cream, such as A-Derma Skin Care Cream or a systemic treatment.
