Your winter wardrobe can trigger your eczema!



You may not realize that overdressing, particularly during the winter months, will make your eczema worse. Wearing too much will cause you to sweat, or wearing clothing made from irritating materials will cause itching and scratching – all of which are common triggers of eczema. Try dressing in layers, so the moment you feel a change in body temperature, you can easily adjust by removing/adding clothing as needed.

Change damp clothing as soon as possible and wear loose-fitting or cotton fabrics next to your skin. Moisturizers are an essential component to successfully managing your sensitive skin, so make sure you maintain adequate hydration levels by drinking enough water and regularly moisturizing throughout the day and immediately after a bath or shower.
