Healthy skin helps retain moisture and protects you from bacteria, irritants and allergens. Eczema is linked to a genetic variation that affects the skin’s ability to provide this protection. As a result, your skin can be affected by environmental factors, irritants, and allergens.Atopic dermatitis (eczema) Treatment Hyderabad

The following tips can help prevent dermatitis (flare-ups) and minimize the drying effects of the bath:
- Moisturize your skin at least twice a day. Creams, ointments and lotions retain moisture. Pick one or more products that work well for you. Using petroleum jelly on your baby’s skin can help prevent atopic dermatitis from developing.
Try to identify and avoid the triggers that make the situation worse. Things that can make the skin reaction worse include sweat, stress, obesity, soaps, detergents, dust, and pollen. Reduce your exposure to your triggers.
- Infants and children can get torches by eating certain foods like eggs, milk, soybeans, and wheat. Talk to your child’s doctor to determine any possible food allergies.
- Take shorter baths or showers. Limit your baths and showers to 10 to 15 minutes. And use lukewarm water instead of hot water.Atopic dermatitis (eczema) Treatment Hyderabad
