5. Change Your Sheets.
You might not think about it but the type of fabric you sleep on can have a big impact on your skin. Obviously it's important to routinely launder your sheets to avoid irritants. You should also pay attention to the types of fabric your sheets are made of as well. Cotton sheets may work well for you. If they are irritating, and you're certain it's not the laundry detergent, you might consider purchasing sheets made specifically for those with eczema. They are made from a material that's antibacterial and breathable to keep your skin cool and dry.
6. Use Eczema Friendly, Unscented Laundry Detergent.
Laundry detergent, cleaning agents, and fabric softeners are among the most common skin irritants that people come into contact with on a daily basis. Making sure that your laundry detergent isn't adding to your skin irritation is hugely important because you're exposed to it on a continual basis. Detergents with strong scents should be avoided. Opt instead for more gentle detergents that have fewer chemicals.
7. Witch Hazel.
Witch hazel is a very old remedy for pretty much any type of skin irritation. It's an astringent that's used on everything from eczema to acne to boils and all points in between. It does have antibacterial properties and can decrease inflammation. You'll also find that witch hazel reduces the physical irritation that accompanies a flare-up.
8. Monitor Your Diet for Triggers.
If you're not thinking about what you eat, you should. Most people with eczema find that certain foods will set off their symptoms. In some cases, this can be caused by allergies. If you've never done a food journal, this can be an excellent way to really examine how what you eat impacts your eczema. You may find that limiting certain foods makes a huge difference.
