Treating Eczema with Dash-Topic Plus
by Fabian H on Mar 15, 2023
Eczema is a condition that causes your skin to become dry, red, itchy and bumpy. Eczema is one of many types of dermatitis that damages the skin barrier function. This loss of barrier function makes your skin more sensitive and more prone to infection and dryness.
While eczema doesn’t harm your body, it does affect your appearance. A flare-up doesn’t mean that your skin is dirty or infected, but it can make you feel self-conscious about your appearance. Eczema is also not contagious.
There are treatments that can help you manage your symptoms.
Treating eczema can sometimes be difficult because it is not necessarily a “user error,” meaning that it’s something you cannot control, like genetics, or the weather. Luckily, there are common practices and treatments that you can work into your daily life that will reduce itching and discomfort, as well as prevent infection or additional flare-ups.
Prevention is always the best line of defense, so let’s start there. If you are still experiencing flare-ups, don’t worry! You will experience trial and error in your personal skin-care journey. You may find that some of these preventative measures work better than others.
- Establish a skin care routine, and follow your healthcare professional’s recommendations for keeping your skin healthy.
- Take baths and showers in lukewarm water instead of hot water.
- Stay hydrated. It’s best to drink eight glasses of water a day.
- Limit exposure to known irritants.
- Wear loose clothes made of cotton and other natural materials. Wash new clothing before wearing.
- Manage your stress. Managing stress is very important. Trying any of the following will help you with your stress management
- Exercise daily
- Talk about your life with friends, family, and a therapist
- Try to have a positive attitude
- Sleep eight hours a night
- Try not to overdo it with caffeine or alcohol
Treatments to consider
We will be introducing our new line of Dash-Topic Plus to our store (prescription) in 2023. We hope that you will try our new solution in your skin-care journey. In the meantime, we’d like to leave you with some common best practices for preventing and treating flare-ups.
While one or several of these treatments may work for you, know that they are not a “cure all.” It will take time to find the right combination of medications or therapy. You may sometimes need to talk to a medical professional if your at home efforts aren’t getting you the results you need.
- Use a humidifier if dry air irritates your skin.
- See a psychiatrist for any mental health issues, as stress can exacerbate eczema.
- Moisturize your skin using a cream or ointment.
- Use mild soaps free of perfumes, dyes, and alcohol.
- Take over-the-counter antihistamines for severe itching.
- Take prescription medications your healthcare provider prescribes. This could come in the form of steroid creams, pills, and/or shots.
