What are the common symptoms of eczema?

Eczema symptoms vary from person to person and depend upon the type of eczema.

The most common eczema symptom experienced is an intense itching followed by a rash. The rash can cause skin to appear red and inflamed. Areas of the skin that are inflamed for long periods of time can become thick as a response to repeated scratching. These thickened plates of skin can become cracked and painful. Other eczema symptoms include fluid or pus-filled blisters and crusting.

Where do eczema symptoms occur?

Eczema symptoms can affect any part of the body. In adults and children eczema symptoms are commonly experienced on the face, hands, neck, and legs. In infants eczema symptoms may appear more on the forehead, cheeks, scalp, legs, and arms. Symptoms can appear for just a few hours as a response to irritation, but more often eczema symptoms last for days, weeks, even months.

Find relief from eczema symptoms

It is nearly impossible to avoid the overwhelming number of triggers or irritants that may cause an eczema flare-up and its symptoms. Try to keep away from household cleaners, harsh soaps, detergents, and conventional lotions. Conventional lotions are not designed to handle tough skin conditions like eczema and can often make the condition worse. Artificial colorants and fragrances irritate the skin and can lead to flare-ups. Using Skin MD Natural Shielding Lotion strengthens the skin’s natural barrier against harsh chemicals and irritants that can lead to eczema flare-ups.

During an eczema flare-up, itching can be unbearable. Keeping skin properly moisturized will eliminate the dryness associated with eczema symptoms and help keep the itching to a minimum. Skin MD Natural keeps skin hydrated without the use of toxic ingredients that will further irritate eczema.

“This is an excellent moisturizer. Period. Hands down the best thing that I have used for my eczema. I have been using a combination of Neutrogena Body Oil and Curel lotion in the past, and will still be red and itchy and occasionally need to use steroid creams. This is the worst on my legs, but sometimes on my arms as well. Since I started using Skin MD Natural a few weeks ago, I have seen a pretty dramatic improvement in my skin tone and my eczema symptoms. My skin is smooth, feels well moisturized and I have had far fewer problems with redness and itching. I feel like I have normal skin.”
