People who live with eczema long for relief from red and itchy skin. You have probably tried a variety of products but, unfortunately, store products can leave your skin feeling drier and even more irritated. Luckily, there are alternatives you can try; more natural methods for moisturising broken and dry skin and fight harmful bacteria to reduce swelling and prevent infection. Although they cannot completely cure eczema, they can help you manage and prevent flareups.
We all know that massage helps to relieve stress, hence it may also help people who have eczema to reduce flareups. It is a good idea to visit a massage therapist who’s accredited with working with people with non-contagious skin conditions. But before you make an appointment, it is also important to first check that the oils and lotions they’re using will not trigger your eczema or make it worse. And if you want to make sure, we suggest bringing your own.
The intense itching is the most miserable and uncomfortable part of an eczema flareup. Try using Love of Limbs eczema natural cream that contains coconut oil (carrier) and cannabidiol (CBD) to provide much-needed relief. We only use ingredients found in nature and skilfully produce all of our products at home.
Are you still struggling with persistent itch? You may want to consider phototherapy then. According to the National Eczema Association in the US, light therapy uses ultraviolet light to penetrate the outer layers of skin, reduce itching, increase vitamin D production and help fight bacteria on your skin. Also, adding 10 to 15 minutes a day of sun exposure, especially during an eczema flareup, can provide relief and speedy healing.
Cool and wet compresses
For some individuals with eczema, you can make a quick compress to cool and lessen the itching to your skin by wetting a washcloth. If your eczema is severe, after you’ve put on medicine or lotion, make a wet wrap by soaking a piece of soft cloth then apply it to the affected area. It helps your skin absorb moisture and medicine. Wet wraps also relieve itching and pain.
