||People that have eczema are prone to skin infections. When the skin is irritated, sometimes its surface cracks and gaps are formed. Germs can envade the skin through these gaps and cause an infection. To reduce this risk, use a mild, non-drying cleanser on your skin to remove dirt, bacteria, and other foreign matter. Gently apply the cleanser with your fingertips and rinse it off with tepid water.
A humidifier is a great investment if you suffer from eczema. They push water into your air. A moist environment is better for eczema than a dry one. This will keep your skin feeling its best regardless of the weather outside. As a warning, though, keep it clean at all times.
