Triggers and Eczema

Updated on March 20, 2018

Learning to manage eczema means learning what triggers flares for you. Triggers are different for everyone and can vary based on environment, lifestyle, weather, diet, stress, and so much more. Learning about triggers is best done with the support of others who understand what you are going through.

On MyEczemaTeam, the social network and online support group for those living with eczema, members talk about a range of personal experiences and struggles. Triggers are one of the top 10 topics most discussed.

Here are some conversation threads about triggers:

I started thinking about my different triggers. Is there any link between coffee and eczema?

I'm finding that my steroid ointment is making me itch more, does anyone else have this?

4 years ago I went for a food intolerance test and found what was causing my outbreaks.

Stress + No Sleep = Bad Skin

I'm pretty sure dairy and gluten are my triggers.

I'm suffering from a flare up and am considering an elimination diet. Has anyone had any success with one?

Can you relate?
