What is the best sunscreen for eczema?

From our inbox: Any suggestions on sunscreen? Seems like everything we have tried causes a flare now.

Comment below with the type of sunscreen that has worked for you!

  1. So this flies in the face of most current advise on limiting unprotected exposure to direct sunlight.

    1. Thank you for weighing in with your perspective. I do believe there is a balance here with both lines of thought. I am sharing the following from our website that may be of interest: Please let us know your thinking on this... Sending healing hugs, Liz - - Site Moderator

  2. Even using sunscreen when outside, I experience outbreaks no matter the season. My eczema is a yearround issue whether or not I am outside in the sun. It was made worse because of coworkers' preferences to higher temepatures no matter the season.

    1. I am sad to learn about your symptoms. I can be especially challenging when unable to control the climate of one's workspace. It sounds like heat is your trigger whether indoors or out.

  4. I had trouble with most sunscreens until I found 2 that I'm not allergic to....they do not burn or sting even if I have open places.
    They are: 1) Vanicream Sunscreen & 2) Neutrogena Sensitive Skin. Both are fragrance FREE.
    Hope this helps someone!
