Eczema is a hereditary skin condition that causes skin irritation and rawness. The irritation and rawness are caused by the lack of moisture in the sufferer's skin. In eczema sufferers, dry and itchy skin is a constant battle but there are ways you can combat the itch.

Keep Your Skin Moisturized

Keeping your skin moisturized will help protect your skin from irritants and reduce the rash that most sufferers are prone to. Keeping your skin moisturized will stop the itching then & there and will offer you some relief.  Opt for fragrance-free moisturizers that won't irritate your skin.
Look for denser moisturizers for maximum protection and make sure the brand you choose meets the standards of dermatologists.  Try using a thicker skin cream or ointment that has more oil at night. 

Steer Clear Of Certain Products

Eczema sufferers should avoid any products that dry out the skin, such as glycolic acid, salicylic acid and retinol. Preservatives can also irritate the skin as they can cause inflammation. If you are female, it is better to consider avoiding any fragranced sanitary products, as this could also cause skin irritation.

Consider Taking Shorter Shower

When we bathe, we are taking in water without realizing it. Our skin absorbs water when we bathe. Too much water irritates eczema sufferers. When we take in too much water, our skin can dry out. It is important to moisturize as soon as you get out of the tub.

Switch to Healthy Eating

It is the job of food to nourish us, but it can also hurt us. With harsh chemicals, GMOs and preservatives allergies are on the rise. Skin specialists worldwide, including Thailand and Dubai suggest avoiding certain types of food which can irritate eczema-like: 

  • citrus fruits
  • dairy
  • eggs
  • gluten or wheat
  • soy
  • spices
  • tomatoes
  • some variants of nuts 

While some of these options may appear healthy, many items on the list contain irritants such as preservatives. Consider adding healthier options to your diet such as fish and foods with good bacteria such as yogurt and miso soup.

Having a Humidifier in the Room

If you sweat too much, you will likely have a flare-up. Sleeping in a cool and dry room helps to prevent sweating and allows you some relief from a flare-up. Having a dry room helps to limit dust mites and mold, which can also irritate eczema.


Eczema can be frustrating to deal with, but if you keep the tips on this list in mind and keep your skin protected, then you will find relief from the symptoms of eczema. You may also contact Mya Care for scheduling an appointment with a skin specialist in Dubai or anywhere across the world.
