What strategies do you use to avoid your eczema triggers?

  1. I agree that rinsing off can help so much with comfort and removing those pesky body surface triggers.
    When not able, I like to try a light covering of vaseline to those particularly itchy areas.
    Avoiding our known triggers is much easier for us to practice being proactive.

    It's those other times when we are caught off guard, unable to prevent exposure or face a new trigger that causes a flare.
    Always an adventure...

    1. When my skin begins to feel itchy I find that taking a shower makes me feel more comfortable, often solving the problem.
