Eczema: Triggers and Treatments

Eczema, also known as atopic dermatitis, is a common skin condition that affects millions of people worldwide. While there is no cure for eczema, understanding its triggers, and seeking appropriate treatment can help manage the condition effectively. In this blog post, we will explore the common triggers of eczema and the comprehensive treatment options available at TSI Clinic.

Common Triggers of Eczema:

  1. Allergens: Allergens such as pollen, pet dander, dust mites, and mold can trigger eczema flare-ups. Identifying and avoiding these triggers is essential for managing the condition.
  1. Irritants: Harsh soaps, detergents, fragrances, and certain abrasive fabrics can irritate the skin and exacerbate eczema symptoms. At TSI, we believe in providing assistance and guidance regarding these seemingly innocuous life choices, so that you can choose to purchase skin-friendly fabrics and minimise flare ups! 
  1. Dry Skin: Insufficient moisture in the skin’s protective barrier can make it more susceptible to eczema. TSI Clinic offers hydration strategies and emollient recommendations.
  1. Stress: Stress and emotional upheaval can worsen eczema symptoms. TSI Clinic’s holistic approach includes stress management techniques to improve overall well-being.
  1. Climate: Environmental factors like cold, dry weather or excessive sweating in hot, humid conditions can impact eczema. TSI Clinic helps patients adapt their skincare routines to different climates.
