Was Diagnosed With Eczema In May ‘21, It’s Just On My Arms And Hands Sometimes, Any Idea On What To Do Regarding Summer Heat And Humidity?

I’m looking to keep it from flaring up, no itching or other symptoms, hot shower or steam is a trigger, being in the hot sun last week set it off so I’m looking for any suggestions on keeping it calm during the hot summer days.

Keep moisturizering throughout the day, you can cover your arms when it’s on hands it’s a challenge I know.

I live in Colorado but it is high desert so quite dry and hot in the summers. I am getting quite creative with finding long sleeve light layers and sticking to breathable natural fibers for the summer. Cotton button up long sleeve shirts seem to work well unbuttoned over a Tshirt. My son gave me a white one that was a little large but perfect.
