More women than ever are suffering from adult onset eczema. But it’s affecting more than just their skin… NationalEczemaWeek skincare

United Kingdom News, United Kingdom Headlines

More women than ever are suffering from adult onset eczema. But it’s affecting more than just their skin…

For communications manager Nisha Smith, 31, eczema has had a detrimental impact on her work and social life. “When the patches are at their worst on my face, I work from home – I’m lucky my company has a relaxed policy,” she says. “Once, when I thought I had the patches covered with make-up, I attended an event and someone rubbed my face thinking I had smudged lipstick. It was so embarrassing when it didn’t rub off.

“You’re more likely to develop atopic eczema if one or both of your parents has it or another type of atopic condition, like asthma or hay fever,” says Alice Lambert, director of services at the National Eczema Society (NES). “The body’s immune system overreacts to things that wouldn’t normally harm us, for example, pollen or dust mites.” On top of that, eczema is also one of a few dermatological conditions that can be exacerbated by emotion.

The number of different elements that can cause eczema in adults and the fact that triggers vary significantly from person to person can make it particularly difficult to diagnose and treat. Is air pollution causing irritation? Is it an allergy to a pet? A highly scented soap? The stress of a new job? Even coming down with a cold can cause a flare-up.

An insider tip from fellow sufferers is to apply emollients within three minutes of having a shower or bath to lock in moisture before the skin has a chance to dry out. And keep the temperatures of the water low as a raised body temperature can exacerbate itchiness.The itch you can’t scratch
