Eczema is an irritating skin condition that can affect people of all ages. The blisters, infections and rashes can make you feel uncomfortable and self-conscious about your appearance. It can be difficult to prevent flareups because there are many things that can trigger this skin condition. Here are tips to help you minimize the three most common triggers of eczema to help you look and feel better.

Exposure to Dry Winter Air
Extreme temperatures and lack of moisture during the winter can be a leading trigger for an eczema flareup. Use a gentle cleanser to keep your skin clean and a light moisturizer made for sensitive skin to help provide a protective barrier. Check the ingredients before you purchase to ensure there are no dyes or fragrances that can cause irritation. Choose clean clothing made of soft material to cover your skin when going outside. Dress in light layers and remove wet clothing immediately when returning indoors.

Anxiety and Stress
Stress and anxiety can intensify with all the holiday gatherings and preparation during the winter. Your body tends to produce more cortisol when under stress and exacerbate eczema symptoms. Cortisol can also weaken the immune system, which can lead to inflammation throughout your body. You can prevent these triggers with exercise, journaling and other healthy ways to keep your stress and anxiety under control.

Processed Foods
The holiday season offers a smorgasbord of unhealthy processed foods that can trigger eczema symptoms. Common food triggers include dairy, peanuts and wheat. Food containing a high sugar content can increase inflammation in the body. You may want to consider an allergen test to identify what foods may be triggering your symptoms. When at holiday gatherings, try to limit your intake and choose lean meats and fresh fruit and vegetables instead of cookies and other sweets.

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.
Jeffery D.
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.
