Eczema flare-ups can be prevented by adopting simple habits.

I was a child who suffered from severe acne. Eczema: A chronic skin condition that is characterized by dry, itchy rashes. The treatment options at the time were very limited. I was covered for years in an ointment based on tar. The experience of being teased by children for a visible manifestation of a skin disease that I could not control was the reason why I decided to pursue dermatology. I wanted people with skin conditions and diseases to live a higher quality of life.

Dermatologists refer to eczema as “the itching that rashes,” and this is the difference between dry skin. Eczema sufferers are more likely to develop allergies. Itching is caused by an increased sensitivity to allergens in the environment, which causes an overactive nerve stimulation. Dryness can be caused by an imbalance in the oils that keep your skin healthy.

I’m a clinical dermatologist who only accepts referrals. I see many patients with eczema. They often come to me with no other option. Unfortunately, eczema cannot be cured. Can control. I believe in a holistic approach to each problem. I ask myself: What could be affecting how quickly a person feels relief in their life? In order to create a personalized regimen for my patient, I address each of these factors. Since each patient is unique, I offer a variety of therapeutic options at home and on prescription.

Here are the top tips I give to my patients that don’t require a prescription:

Choose a skin-care product that is Anti-inflammatory, intensely moisturizing, and repairs the skin barrier. My first recommendation is Epionce Barrier Cream.

Do not use any other skin care product containing fragrance, perfume, tea tree oil, or chlorine.

Avoid very hot temperatures. This includes bathing in hot water.

Consume a diet rich in protein and anti-inflammatory nutrients.

Avoid caffeine and alcohol, spicy foods, chocolate, and other foods.

Take oral supplements to help relieve symptoms. These include vitamin C and E, flax oil, borage, iron, green tea, and borage oil.

Use non-fragranced laundry detergents, softeners and fabric conditioners. Do NOT use dryer sheets.

Every six months, clean out your air ducts in your home.

Avoid costume jewelry – Nickel can cause irritation.

These recommendations do not replace the specific advice of another doctor regarding a particular treatment regimen. I want to make my patients feel better, so they can enjoy their lives. My hope is that these tips will help you or someone else.
