What Are Your Best Tips For Managing Eczema?

Eczema can be incredibly frustrating and uncomfortable, so we want to know what you do to get it under control.

Eczema is a chronic skin condition that causes red, itchy, inflamed patches on the skin.

If you live with eczema, what are some things you have found that help you manage your flare-ups and make things a little more comfortable?

Maybe you have a favorite type of lotion, soap, or makeup that's gentle enough for your incredibly sensitive skin.

Or perhaps you've found that avoiding certain products or ingredients — like dyes or fragrances — can really help.

Maybe you've developed a strategy to prevent yourself from itching, no matter how strong the temptation.

For example: I keep a bottle of petroleum jelly on my nightstand and apply it to problem areas every night before I go to sleep.

Whatever you do to help manage your eczema, soothe your sensitive skin, and make flare-ups a little less annoying — we want to know about it.
