The Fastest Way To Treat Eczema Symptoms, According To Dermatologists
The most frustrating thing about
eczema isn’t that it appears in dry, flaky patches that make the skin itch like crazy. Or the fact that, after decades of study, researchers still haven’t figured out what causes the condition, which is also known as
atopic dermatitis. (They do think it’s likely due to a defect in the skin barrier that prevents it from retaining moisture.) No, eczema’s real upper hand is that it can be exacerbated by cold weather, high temperatures,
and dry climates — so, essentially, any weather at all. The icing on the bummer cake is that there’s no known cure for the condition, but that’s not to say there’s no hope for relief.
