You may think eczema doesn’t apply to you because you haven’t had it before, but surprise, you can wake up one day and have a flare-up seemingly out of the blue. The aesthetic unpleasantness of red, blistery skin aside, flare-ups also tend to come with itchiness and a feeling of general discomfort so it’s good to know what you should do if you find yourself in that situation. There are certain products that will clear up a flare-up in a few days that should have a permanent place in your medicine cabinet.
Many over-the-counter products that work to treat eczema also work to treat very dry skin and mild rashes so they’re good to always keep on hand as preventive measures, especially in dry climates. Note that these recommendations are for mild cases — usually a result of contact with an irritant or an allergy. For severe cases, consult your dermatologist as prescription-strength products may be required.
