So You Think You Have Eczema?

Is it Really Eczema?

Do you suffer from an itchy rash that doesn’t go away, or if it does, it returns? Eczema is a term that covers several different types of skin inflammations, and diagnosing your condition correctly is the first step in better dealing with it.

It has been estimated that a third of the population has had eczema at some time in their lives, often running in families and starting as a baby. How do you know if you have eczema? Eczema symptoms, and their severity, can vary considerably from one person to another. Commonly, the symptoms appear as dry patches of skin that are:

  • Extremely itchy
  • Red
  • Inflamed (swollen)
  • Painful

Determining if you have eczema


If you have any skin problem that doesn’t resolve easily, you should seek competent advice. The best way to diagnose eczema is for a doctor to examine the rash and ask you about your family and medical histories. You may be more at risk if others in your family have had eczema, or if you have a history of asthma or allergic reactions. Although there is no test for eczema, allergy testing can help isolate irritants that contribute to skin flare ups, such as pollen, laundry soap or skin cleansers, certain foods.

Managing the condition


If it is confirmed that you have eczema, don’t be discouraged. Now that the condition has been identified, it can be managed so you can reduce your chances of flare ups. Some helpful articles:

October is Eczema Awareness Month


We’re proud to support the National Eczema Association


This month, the National Eczema Association has shared 5 tips for making life easier. They are simple but so important that we want to pass them on. Here are their recommendations:
1. The best way to get water into skin is to briefly soak in a bath or shower and to moisturize immediately afterwards.
2. Find activities that are relaxing and make time for relaxation every day.
3. Use of an effective moisturizer several times every day improves skin hydration and barrier function.
4. Eczema is easier to cope with if you talk to your friends and family about it.
5. Bleach baths, vinegar baths, baking soda baths, or oatmeal baths can all help sooth skin with eczema
I urge you to support the National Eczema Association and share their message with others.

How Can I Keep My Skin Hydrated?


Moisturized skin is plumper, more radiant, more youthful. How can you keep it this way?


Drinking plenty of water—not counting coffee or soda—is obviously important to the proper function of your body, but it’s not enough to keep your skin moisturized. Katie Rodan, dermatologist and co-author of Write Your Skin a Prescription for Change, says that, “humans aren’t like plants. Our skin doesn’t perk up when we consume water.”

Is Rosacea Disrupting Your Life?

Anyone of any age can get rosacea, but women over 30 are more likely to develop it than any other group. There are different types of rosacea but they share a few things in common – visibly red, inflamed skin, usually around the nose, eyes, and forehead. Mild rosacea can be hidden under make up, but when it’s more severe, it can be profoundly embarrassing, interfering with both work and social life.
It’s never a good idea to ignore rosacea, as it tends to worsen when untreated. One of the most important things you can do to start getting your life back is to keep a journal of exactly what you do that may affect your skin so you can learn to avoid your triggers.
The National Rosacea Society conducted a large survey of sufferers who said that the following worsened their rosacea:
  • Sun exposure 81%
  • Emotional stress 79%
  • Hot weather 75%
  • Wind 57%
  • Heavy exercise 56%
  • Alcohol consumption 52%
  • Hot baths 51%
  • Cold weather 46%
  • Spicy foods 45%
There are more potential triggers, but many doctors particularly emphasize the importance of avoiding the sun (wear sunscreen or a hat), excessive heat or cold, and alcohol. These are clearly key things to note in your journal, but also take note of what you eat, the soap you use, and anything else you suspect.
Anti-inflammatory medications can be used, but many report mixed results and limited benefits. Avoidance of flare ups in the first place, keeping the skin nourished with light, non-clogging moisturizer (such as InfiniteAloe--Aloe Vera is famous for its anti-inflammatory properties!) makes sense.
I’ll be sharing more tips in upcoming blog posts. Is there anything specific you want to address?
