An effective plan for treatment for Eczema includes paying special attention to the ingredients in daily skincare products. For people with Eczema, this can be a never-ending task. After all, it is estimated that the average person uses up to 100 different chemicals on their skin before leaving home in the morning – just in our daily skincare routine.
While most skincare products are safe for people with normal skin (even if it is disconcerting to think all those chemicals), people with Eczema need to seek out products that are labeled hypoallergenic and pay special attention to ingredients that can cause irritation, such as these:
- Botanicals (plants based ingredients)
- Colors and Dyes
- Phthalates (an ingredients used in plastic bottles and containers)
- Sodium Laureth Sulfate
Symptoms of Eczema include patches of chronically itchy, irritated skin, on the hands, neck, chest, face, scalp, and legs, although it can occur on any part of the body. Some people with eczema on the face may develop symptoms around the eyes and eyelids. Babies tend to show symptoms on the face.
For adults coping with Eczema, there are dozens of products claiming that they are effective and appropriate for treating the skin condition – in fact, we reviewed some of those products in our article on Eczema Cream. But one company focuses only on creating a full range of products for anyone with Eczema, based on a clear understanding of the condition and the needs of those suffering from it.
Exederm™ products contain fewer irritants and are designed for ‘ultra sensitive’ skin. Their quality products have been awarded the National Eczema Association ‘Seal of Acceptance’ year after year, making them a safe choice and worry-free choice.
Not only does Exederm ™ create products for adults with Ezcema, they have a line of products ideal for babies and children under 2 years old. Baby eczema occurs in 10-20% of infants, although those estimates are low according to the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases – they estimate that between 9 – 30% of the U.S. population has the skin condition, and that it is more common in young children and infants.
Even at its best, Ezcema can be difficult to manage, but for parents coping with a young child or baby with Eczema, it’s an especially daunting task to keep baby calm and irritant free. Apart from the products recommended here, there are several things you can do to help manage the disorder in a young child or baby – we have provided some tips strategies in our articles on Baby Eczema.
