Stress and Climate

Recent research highlights the importance of the skin microbiome in eczema. Imbalances in skin flora, such as increased Staphylococcus aureus colonization, contribute to inflammation and exacerbate eczema symptoms.

Managing Dry Skin

Dry skin exacerbates eczema symptoms. Factors like winter weather, frequent washing with hot water, and low humidity can worsen eczema. Regular use of emollients helps retain skin moisture and combat dryness.

Identifying Irritants

Certain substances, like harsh detergents, cosmetics, and allergens, can irritate the skin and exacerbate eczema symptoms. Avoiding these irritants is crucial for managing eczema flare-ups.
