Many people associate eczema with cold winter weather. The dryness of the air outside, the dryness of air indoors, and the constant battle of trying to keep the skin hydrated can certainly all contribute to eczema flare-ups in winter. However, those who suffer from this skin condition know that eczema flare-ups can ruin their summers.

Heat makes everyone sweat. While some people are grossed out by sweat, it is a natural bodily defense mechanism to control the body’s temperature. Sweat is mostly made up of water. As water evaporates from the skin’s surface, it provides a natural cooling sensation to lower the skin. Sweat also consists of sodium, calcium, magnesium, potassium, urea, lactic acid, iron, zinc, nickel, iron, lead, and chromium. Even though these minerals are natural, as well, they can be irritating to sensitive skin. Since Georgia is infamous for its humidity levels, sweat does not evaporate from the skin as easily as in “dry heat.” When the skin has a buildup of chemicals on the skin, it can trigger underlying skin conditions.

Here are Tips to Prevent Eczema From Ruining Your Summer:

  • Try not to get or stay too sweaty.
  • Wear soft, breathable clothing to keep your body cool.
  • Wear sunscreen with an SPF of 30 or higher every day. Make sure you avoid sunscreens that have chemicals that trigger your symptoms.
  • Chose sunscreen that physically blocks the ultraviolet rays with the minerals zinc oxide or titanium dioxide.
  • Wear a hat.
  • Take a shower after you come indoors.
  • Apply a layer of lotion before you swim to prevent chlorine from irritating your skin.
  • Be mindful of what bug sprays you apply to your skin.

Our Patient Reviews

Dr. Weisman was very professional, friendly, and engaged in conversation with terminology I would understand. Her beside manner was, quite frankly, surprising! It was one of the most comfortable visits I've ever experienced with a doctor.

Dr. Weisman is a great doctor! She was very informative and personally! Her staff were very welcoming as well I'm glad I found her because she is the only doctor who truly explained what was going with me.
Waquele H.
I truly cannot express how thankful I am for this practice. I have been treated with kindness and immense care by every staff member I have encountered here. The nurses and assistants are beyond attentive and genuinely care for the patient. I have just received a treatment plan from Dr. Laura Biehl, and even if this particular treatment plan doesn't provide me relief, I am confident that Dr. Biehl will work to figure out a solution. She is extremely knowledgeable, listens to patient concerns, and takes time to answer patient questions. Dr. Biehl, and this practice are true gems. If you have any dermatological issues this practice is absolutely the best of the best.
