What Is Eczema And How To Manage Eczema This Fall And Winter With Neosporin Essentials

Our family has quite the experience with eczema.  Three of my girls and myself deal with eczema every year, mostly during the cold winter months.  To fully treat eczema, we must first understand what it is and what triggers it.

What is Eczema?

Eczema is a chronic inflammatory skin condition characterized by dry, itchy skin and visible skin rash. Atopic dermatitis is the most common form of eczema. In a healthy state, the external layer of your skin acts as a protective barrier. But for eczema sufferers, the skin has a deficiency in the external layer that allows the moisture to escape and causes chronic dryness. When skin is dry and unprotected, irritants can reach the sensitive layers below and cause uncomfortable itch flare-ups. Therefore, people with eczema are more susceptible to irritants or allergens, which trigger inflammation-producing cells that result in itching and redness.

There are many things that can trigger eczema.  Things like irritants found in products such as soaps and fragrances, wool, rough textures, cold and dry weather, and heat and sweating.  For our family, it seems the dry winter weather is the main trigger for us as that’s when we usually notice an eczema outbreak.  We can tell we’re broken out with eczema with the telltale signs of dry, itchy, red, inflamed skin.

My outbreaks seem to occur the most on my hands because I hate wearing gloves to wash dishes or do other household related chores that use cleaners.  I never seem to experience this reaction during the Spring or Summer so it has to be a combination of that and the dry, cold weather.  However, my kids tend to get them on their faces and by their elbows or upper arms.  Their eczema outbreaks seem to occur when they play outside or when I have used most types of soap in their baths or laundry detergents to wash their clothes that contain fragrances in them.

It certainly makes life more challenging and frustrating on us whenever we have an eczema outbreak.  The kids tend to get more cranky and I feel so sorry for them because it tends to be harder on them than myself.  Luckily over the years, we’ve learned to manage it so that it’s kept at a minimum in our household.  Thankfully, we’ve also learned a thing or two from expert Dr. Peter Lio on how to better manage our eczema as well.  I’ve included some of his tips on how to manage eczema flare ups this season.

Here are Seasonal Eczema Tips from Dr. Peter Lio:

Many people suffer from seasonal allergies in the fall, and these can trigger eczema flares. Going back to school can be a stressor which also triggers eczema in some, while the change to drier, cooler weather can also provoke the eczema.
  • If seasonal allergies are active, talk to your doctor about keeping them in check with medications such as antihistamines
  • If school stress is a trigger, try to meet with teachers early in the year to keep on top of school work and avoid last minute stress
  • Focus on a regular skincare routine with regular bathing and moisturizing, as well as using topical medications when needed
Cold and dry weather outside and forced hot air inside can put the skin at high risk for flare ups. The lack of sunlight may result in lower levels of vitamin D which may be related to eczema flare ups in the winter as well.
  • Keep the skin warm and protected when outside
  • Try a thick, protective moisturizer on the exposed skin to prevent windburn
  • Consider talking to your doctor about supplementing vitamin D during the winter months as many people are deficient and this may play a role in eczema
  • Consider getting a humidifier for bedrooms to help add moisture to the dry air
  • Continue your regular skincare routine with regular bathing and moisturizing, as well as using topical medications when needed

    I wonder if my daughter knows they have all these products. My grandson has this as well and I’m just not sure what she uses so I need to tell her about this. I know she uses neosporin in the home for cuts or scrapes, etc.

    Many people as they age, are also experiencing eczema because skin tends to get dryer. Cream moisturizers that seemed too heavy when we were young, now seem like the perfect remedy to help put a protective barrier on the skin. The Neosporin Essentials skincare solutions seems to have the right ingredients to keep eczema in check. I love that the moisturizer has the colloidal oatmeal to protect the skin. Thanks for sharing all the wonderful tips from Dr. Peter Lio too.

    I started getting eczema horribly in my 20s. It covered my entire upper body. 2 years ago, I started looking at jump start flushes to help with losing weight, and found an All Stop Eczema Cream Combo Pack by Qbased Solutions I started taking it and noticed my skin cleared up dramatically. I bought it online after that my skin have been fairly eczema free for almost 2 years. I have patches once in awhile on my back that flare up when I get super stressed, but no where near where it was at before.
