Weather and Eczema

Posted on May 18, 2018

Changing weather can be a trigger for eczema flares. It's different for everyone, but hot or cold temperatures, high humidity, or blistering wind can all cause discomfort. Once you learn your eczema triggers, you can learn tips and tricks from others about how to be prepared and find relief.

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

Here are some conversations about the weather:

I can't take this weather my eczema is really irritating me I can't stop scratching.

My son had his dermatology checkup. We have a salt water pool so the doctor advised us to start swimming very often as soon as the weather stays warm.

So far so good a lot of itching lately probably due to this weather changing and allergies but I’m sticking it out.

The weather warmed up and Eczema flares up, very itchy for a few days it is much better today.

After changing my diet my flare ups come down to change of weather or stress or tiredness. So I now have little outbreaks and use steroids now and then instead of every day.

Today my skin is very dry from upper lips and it's going to my nostrils too. Edmonton, AB weather is so cold and dry it makes my skin worse.

Can you relate?
