Keep your stress levels down if you have eczema. The chances of having it flare up increase when you are stressed out. Stress can also make eczema itchier and more uncomfortable. That can create a never-ending cycle of anger and frustration from dealing with both your stress and your skin. Try relaxing by doing activities like yoga, deep breathing, and meditation.
Pay attention to the clothes that you wear. Some fabrics may cause eczema to flare up. Stick to cotton or cotton blends. You will find other fabrics can be an irritant. Similarly, you need to pay attention to how you wash your clothes. Fabric softener and strong chemical detergents should be avoided.
