I don’t live in a climate in which this is possible year-round, YET, but a girl can dream! The warm months are my favorite, but in many ways, those are the toughest times to hide eczema. Eczema is characterized by itchy red rashes on your skin. It is more common for kids, but it can stick around through adulthood too. Everyone who has it experiences it a different way – from mild to severe – but we all find ourselves in similar situations.
1 – You can’t trust yourself overnight. That’s right – you can try to control the itching/scratching pattern during the day, to some avail, but overnight can be really rough on your skin. You might sleep with gloves on to protect your skin. 2- People will tell you to “Just stop scratching” as if that will solve everything! 3 – You’ll get the red, itchy rashes in odd places. Mine are often on my arms but it can be anywhere. 4 – Summer, with its moist skin, doesn’t necessarily make you feel better. You’ll still feel like you’re shedding dry skin. 5 – You’ll try many things and maybe everything, in order to soothe it, until you find what helps.
Here are five ways to find itch relief and soothe your eczema:
1 – Put ice on it. Make a quick compress with a washcloth or gauze dipped in cold water. You can even use an ice pack or frozen food from the freezer. I’ve used ice cubes in small bags. This helps to numb the area and find some relief. 2 – Take Melatonin. This may help you to sleep through the night. 3 – Using coconut oil can help nourish the skin. 4 – Take a warm bath for 15 minutes and add ground oatmeal to the water for extra soothing. 5 – Discover GOLD BOND® Ultimate Lotion Eczema Relief.
When you think of GOLD BOND, you may think of the original medicated powder that started the brand back in 1908! I totally did, and I’m glad I found this product, because it’s been the most effective for my skin. GOLD BOND® Ultimate Eczema Relief goes beyond other leading eczema products with its 2% colloidal oatmeal that helps break the itching-scratching cycle. I love that it’s not greasy and that it is effective at addressing my symptoms until my skin calmed down again.
It has a steroid-free, patented formula that blends colloidal oatmeal – like I mentioned above – as well as seven moisturizers and three vitamins and relieves my itchiness, dryness, scaling/peeling, roughness, and redness/irritation. I keep it at home and always pop it in my travel bag for long days or nights away from home. I once had a terrible rash while away from home and I haven’t had a problem since bringing this along. It hasn’t just helped me! The formula was clinically tested. 8 out of 10 people saw and felt significant skin improvement in two weeks. 8 out of 10 people experienced significant relief of dryness, scaling, and roughness in two weeks. And 9 out of 10 people experienced significant relief of redness/irritation in four weeks. GOLD BOND® Ultimate Eczema Relief is available at all major mass, drug and food retailers for $9.99.
