Eczema can be caused by numerous different factors. Some of which can be down to what you may have applied to your skin (as in contact eczema). Others can be as a result of stress or other internal factors such as breathing in an allergen (e.g. pollen) which can lead to atopic eczema.
Knowing which type of eczema you have and what might be causing it is essential in understanding how to manage your condition.
How you treat your eczema will depend on the type of eczema you have. For example, avoiding the products or ingredients that cause your symptoms can be all you need to do to help treat irritant contact dermatitis.
We believe in a holistic approach to skin care that encompasses diet, stress management, quality sleep and exercise. For some with eczema, this is enough, for others, topical treatments and medications can be helpful.
For many of us, having eczema means a lifelong battle to keep our skin happy. But with a healthy lifestyle, the right skin care regime and an understanding of the triggers and causes of eczema, it's possible to keep flare ups under control.
Having a skincare consultation with a skin specialist will be helpful for you to ascertain what could be causing your acne and how you could go about managing it or even clearing it up for good.
