There is no cure for eczema, treatment focuses on treating symptoms and preventing flare-ups. Moisturizers or emollients to keep the skin moisturised and decrease irritation and cracking are some eczema treatment alternatives. To minimise swelling, redness, and pain, use steroid lotions and ointments.
Exfoliate sparingly: "Exfoliating at home is great for anti-aging, but don’t overdo it by using AHA toners and peel pads twice a day. Avoid physical exfoliants like rough facial scrubs made with walnut scrubs or sugar,” Sobel said.
Know your triggers: In addition to the aforementioned facial redness triggers, those prone to rosacea and eczema can also experience aggravated skin after taking a hot shower, drinking alcohol, exercising and using products with fragrance (synthetic or natural).
