If you’ve ever experienced extremely dry, sensitive skin on a continual basis, you may have heard your doctor or dermatologist drop the word eczema into the conversation. According to the National Eczema Association, the term eczema is actually the name of not one, but a group of conditions that cause the skin to become easily itchy or inflamed. There’s atopic dermatitis, contact dermatitis, dyshidrotic eczema, nummular eczema, seborrheic dermatitis, and stasis dermatitis. Quite the mouthful, huh?
While the names alone might seem incredibly clinical and advanced, the fact of the matter is that 31.6 million people are affected by some form of eczema each year — and that’s just in the United States. A whole slew of things can cause the uncomfortable condition, from dry skin and allergens to poor circulation and an overall malfunction in the immune system. As such, it can be tricky to know what to look for to target the exact cause and effect of any given eczema condition.
While many dermatologists and doctors will share prescription suggestions and over-the-counter recommendations, not every derm actually lives and breathes the reality of eczema. That’s why we took it upon ourselves to ask everyday men and women what their favorite products are for treating eczema. Ahead you’ll find 19 skincare and hair care products that treat irritation, redness, extremely dry skin, flaky scalps, patchy hands — the whole nine. So, what’re you waiting for? Your most soothed skin is just a scroll away.
