You Have Eczema: Now What?
Were you recently diagnosed by a physician or do you have all the classic signs and symptoms of eczema? It is nice to have a name for the skin condition, but what comes next?

Work on determining your eczema cause. Unfortunately, this can be a long and difficult process. It is one that is best done through trial and error. Eczema has many causes. Some individuals experience an outbreak after contact with certain chemicals, like those found in laundry detergent and makeup. Other experience an outbreak after skin contact is made with allergens, such as pet dander, dust, and mold.

One of the best ways to determine your eczema cause is to keep a journal. Log your daily activities and each outbreak. What were you doing right before? Were you dusting or vacuuming your home? During this time, dust, mold, and pet dander can get stirred up, making contact with your skin. If you suspect you found your trigger factor, you must take steps to avoid it.

Seek immediate relief. As previously stated, stopping eczema at the source can take time and lots of trial and error. You don't want to wait days, weeks, or even months to seek relief; you want it now.

One of the best ways to seek immediate relief from eczema is to moisturize. Dry skin is the leady cause of itching. You can treat dry skin with moisturizer. The format, cream or lotion, should depend on your own personal preference. It is best to apply moisturizer throughout the entire day; however, it is most important immediately following a shower or bath.

Antihistamines and anti-itch creams can also prove effective. Anti-itch creams are topical and should be applied carefully and only to the area you want to treat. Antihistamines are designed to treat allergies, which can actually be a cause of eczema. They help stop the itch, as well as clear up rashes and hives.

Seek support if you need it. Getting an eczema diagnosis has its pros and cons. You now have a name for your condition, but there isn't an immediate cure. Dealing with eczema can be a long struggle. If you have difficulties and do not have a strong support system at home, it is best to seek the support of other eczema sufferers. You can find many support groups and forums online.
