Eczema is a skin condition which causes extreme dryness, irritation and inflammation of the skin in some or all areas of the body. With symptoms usually appearing in early childhood, Eczema causes can include environmental allergens, cosmetic irritants and sometimes diet. Eczema prone skin becomes itchy, sore and is more susceptible to infection as the skin is broken by persistent scratching.
It is important for those with Eczema prone skin to protect the skin's natural barrier by moisturising morning and night with gentle and pure oils and creams. Using dedicated fragrance free skin care products suitable for eczema-prone skin can help with flare ups of mild forms of eczema. Mild forms of eczema on scalp may be managed by using shampoo that doesn't contain harsh chemicals or synthetic fragrances that can strip the skin of its natural oils or cause irritation.
