Eczema Relief and Sensitivity to Weather

Last updated: January 2023

After being hospitalized 6 times in a 3-and-a-half-week period because of medication interactions which caused my atopic dermatitis to flare up to the point where I was literally hospitalized because of it, I am doing much better.

I have been using CeraVe Moisturing Cream and taking cool showers which are approximately less than ten minutes in length.

How my skin responds to the weather

I have noticed that my skin is not as itchy and with summer and winter, the flare-ups are more prone to happen. I use a fan whenever I am in a room for a prolonged period of time to keep the airflow steady regardless of the weather or season because my flare-ups are less frequent. I also limit my time outdoors to avoid flare-up triggers.

It's a never-ending battle for me with my atopic dermatitis.
