Home remedy to treat eczema?
Hello, I am suffering from eczema. I am having dry, scaly skin, along with skin flushing and itching. Can anybody please suggest some home remedies to treat eczema?
@deepjoy There is currently no cure for eczema. Treatment for the condition aims to heal the affected skin and prevent flares of symptoms. Doctors will suggest a treatment plan based on an individual’s age, symptoms, and current state of health. For some people, eczema goes away over time. For others, however, it is a lifelong condition. There are several things that people with eczema can do to support skin health and alleviate symptoms.
They can try:
taking lukewarm baths
applying moisturizer within 3 minutes of bathing to “lock in” moisture
moisturizing every day
wearing cotton and soft fabrics
avoiding rough, scratchy fibers and tight fitting clothing
using a humidifier in dry or cold weather
using a mild soap or a non-soap cleanser when washing
taking extra precautions to prevent eczema flares in winter
air drying or gently patting the skin dry with a towel, rather than rubbing the skin dry after bathing or taking a shower
