How to Treat Eczema Patches on Skin Daily

Updated on November 1, 2016

Eczema is dry and itchy patches on the skin that flare-up from time to time. With this type of skin condition there have to be gentle treatments applied. Eczema can affect the whole body, and cleansing your skin daily will help decrease the eczema symptoms. Small children usually have eczema; a person of any age can have the eczema condition. Most skin products for a person with eczema would have to be hypoallergenic products such as; shampoos, soaps, lotions, make up, and other hair products.

When cleansing the skin, avoid using exfoliate scrubs, loofahs, or other granules cleansers. Using harsh cleansers on the skin will irritate the skin even more. People with eczema skin conditions have to always use mild soaps such as:

  • Eucerin gentle hydrating cleanser

  • Aveeno moisturizing bar for dry skin

  • Dove daily hydrating cleansing bar

  • Neutrogena extra gentle cleanser

  • Cetaphil gentle skin cleanser

To moisturize your skin, use 'Lubriderm lotions,' this lotion is one of the best moisturizers for itchy skin conditions. Lubriderm lotions can be used for dermatitis, eczema, mild skin rashes, and other skin conditions like acne. This lotion can be bought at a local pharmacy, it might cost a little more than some of the other lotions, that’s because it's hypoallergenic and doesn't contain perfumes or other ingredients that would irritated the skin.

More Treatment Tips for Daily Eczema Skin Care

  • Avoid scratching your skin.

  • Take 10 minute quick daily showers with cool water and not hot.

  • Put house plants throughout the home to keep fresh oxygen in the home.

  • When doing any home cleaning use rubber gloves for your cleaning projects.

  • Avoid using products that contain perfumes such as; lotions, deodorants, face and body cleansers.

  • Eat more organic foods: fruits, vegetables, organic smoothies, and more green leafy vegetables.

It's a good idea to change bed linens daily to reduce being in contact with dust and perspiration. Also use a mild deodorant such as 'Arm & Hammer' deodorant or a hypoallergenic deodorant for arm pits. Using the 'Arm & Hammer liquid detergent' for washing laundry will assist with decreasing the effects of eczema skin rashes as well.

Children with eczema have to be taught to wash their hands often, especially after using the bathroom and when arriving from school.

Eczema is not caused by having bad hygiene. Some people with eczema use over the counter products such as Cortizone 10 or Cortaid. And if there are worse eczema patches on the skin after you tried everything, it's best to make an appointment with a dermatologist. Most times your regular doctor can check your skin and give you treatments that may work, before actually referring you to a dermatologist.
