Regardless of if your eczema is caused by a specific allergy or not there are common things which can cause flare-ups:
Very hot or cold weather
Hot, long showers
Non-bio washing powder
Particular soaps or detergents
If you have eczema, always speak to your doctor first. However, your skincare routine can help to prevent flare ups and soothe them when they occur. Eczema means the skin barrier isn’t working properly so the goal should always be to try and maintain moisture in your skin as much as possible. Look for products which are made for people with sensitive skin and are fragrance free as these shouldn’t aggravate your skin. Likewise, avoid active ingredients such as AHAs, BHAs, Vitamin C, and retinol and other vitamin A derivatives as they can also be irritating.
