I've had eczema since I was a kid and I've tried a lot of different moisturizers. Before I was using the Eucerin Calming Creme for years and I hated it. It did keep my skin moisturized and it calmed my spots ( my face, neck,chest and upper back) whenever they became inflamed but, it was way too greasy and thick for me. Then I tried using the Aquaphor but it was like putting Vaseline on my face. So my new dermatologist told me to try Cetaphil DailyAdvance Ultra Hydrating Lotion and I absolutely looove it . It's not too thick or greasy and I would recommend it for anyone with this condition.
Eczema flare-ups are associated with an abnormal response of the body's immune system. In people with eczema, the body's inflammatory response to irritating substances overacts, causing the itching and inflammation associated with the condition. However, what causes this abnormal reaction is not known. There is also no known cure for the disease. However, there are several treatments that can control the symptoms. Many people find relief by moisturizing their skin frequently, reducing stress, and avoiding harsh soaps and detergents. Also a number of nutritional factors (the topic of this online guide) may help control eczema breakouts.
