Eczema begins with genetics, but can “flareup” because of environmental factors.  There are an array of things that can irritate the skin and worsen eczema.

Taking small steps to change your environment is doable.  In another post, 1ST STEPS TO AN “ECZEMA-PROOF” HOME, I have many tips for making your home a more suitable environment for eczema.  With some time and dedication, your new surroundings will be fit for making your skin condition more manageable.

Below is a list of potential environmental factors that can affect and worsen eczema:
-House dust, dust mites
-Pet fur
-Fragrances, perfumes
-Shampoo, conditioner, body soap
-Laundry detergent, fabric softener
-Hard water
-Food, diet
-Season changes 

I understand with today’s recession, it may be difficult to “eczema-proof” your home.  But with this link, 1ST STEPS TO AN “ECZEMA-PROOF” HOMEfollow as many tips as your budget will allow and as soon as possible.  It is NOT necessary to follow all the tips at once.  The information is simply a guide to how you can make your environment a more suitable one for your skin.  All the information may not apply and other tips won’t even cost a dime.  Do only what your budget will allow and what applies and works for you.
