Seasonal treatment of eczema

If your dealing with frequent eczema flare ups, it really helps to keep the skin hydrated and moisturized, especially during the winter months. During the summer months, make sure you use a sunscreen that is non scented as well. When you use lotions and moisturizers, try to make sure they do not have any perfume in them or are scented, since this usually triggers flare ups. You can use topical ointments to help with the itching if you are having trouble with that. When you take a shower/bath, make sure that it is not too hot, a luke warm shower is best as the hot water dries out the skin more which in return can make it more irritated. https://www.facebo ok.com/pages/The-E czema-Spot/4214718 61279506?ref=hl http://theeczemasp ot.com/seasonal-tr eatment-of-eczema/  (Jun 11, 2013 | post #1)

Pustular Psoriasis

Compared to the main type of psoriasis, pustular psoriasis shows up as a more pronounced redness and swelling on the affected areas accompanied by small, pus filled blisters. These postules that appear are usually seen in groups as opposed to just one or two. There are only a few documented cases of this type of psoriasis as most of them go undiagnosed. If this is not diagnosed and treated as soon as possible, you can end up being admitted to the burn unit because of the severity it can present itself with when left untreated. http://theeczemasp ot.com/pustular-ps oriasis/  (May 31, 2013 | post #1)

Eczema on hands

The skin on the sides of your fingers and on the palms of your hands will become extremely itchy and inflamed if you have eczema on your hands. People with a family history of this skin condition are usually more vulnerable to it. In a lot of cases, the children who have this eczema, as they grow older, may have the symptoms appear less frequently. If this is not controlled quickly, or you scratch to try and relieve the itchiness, the skin can become thickened and cracks and red scaly patches will appear on the skin with possibly excruciating pain on the affected areas. You should never give in to the urge to scratching these areas of the skin, the best thing for you to do is find creams to help relieve the inflammation and other symptoms. Generally creams containing corticosteroid are used to reduce the symptoms. Ways to help prevent and reduce the flare ups of eczema on your hands would be to keep hands dry, avoid dust, animal dander, and harsh detergents and soaps, etc. http://theeczemasp ot.com/eczema-on-h ands/ https://www.facebo ok.com/pages/The-E czema-Spot/4214718 61279506?ref=hl  (May 22, 2013 | post #1)

Seborrheic dermatitis is dandruff in the extreme

Seborrheic eczema can be found on the scalp, face, and even the torso, even though it is typically found on the scalp as red flaky, scaly, itchy skin similar to dandruff. This can be caused by environmental, genetic, immune systemic, and hormonal factors. In children, it can be because of too much Vitamin A in their body. The best way to help with this would be proper hygiene(of course). You may also be recommended over-the-counter topical treatments like shampoos, creams, etc containing anti-inflammatory, anti-fungal and oil suppressing ingredients. For home rememdies, you could use cleansing herbal teas wich herbs such as burdock root and red clover to help with the moisture imbalance. http://theeczemasp ot.com/seborrheic- dermatitis/  (May 21, 2013 | post #4)

skin care for eczema on scalp

Eczema on your scalp can sometimes be mistaken for dandruff by many people. You can tell when it is eczema because eventually the the rash on your scalp will start to ooze, and sometimes will even have quite a foul smell to it. CAUSES: this could be because of the different products, shampoos, etc that are used on your scalp. Weather conditions can also trigger the onset of your scalp eczema. REMEDIES: practice good hygiene, switch the hair products you are using to milder ones, products that are more organic. Some recommended ingredients include emu oil, tea tree oils, etc. Try not to give in to the urge to scratch your scalp, instead massage it, which also helps as it stimulates the blood vessels. http://theeczemasp ot.com/eczema-on-s calp/ https://www.facebo ok.com/pages/The-E czema-Spot/4214718 61279506?ref=hl  (May 17, 2013 | post #1)
