Health Tip: If You Have Hand Eczema
Medical news

 

Moisturizing is essential for anyone with hand eczema to help ease pain, redness, cracking and dryness.

The National Eczema Association suggests how to choose the right moisturizer:


Avoid moisturizers that contain a lot of water, as this can dry hands.


Choose a thick, greasy moisturizer with few ingredients.
Apply petroleum jelly as soon as you've finished bathing, and carry some with you to apply during the day.
At night, apply petroleum jelly, and cover with cotton gloves while you sleep.
