Trying to control eczema, especially when allergies and cold weather are involved, can be incredibly hard! We may have just the thing for you! 

 
Neutral products - for anyone with sensitive skin, particularly with eczema, thse products are fragrance free and created to stop irritation to the skin! www.intolerantgourmand.com 
 
A few months ago, Callum and I worked with Allergy UK and Neutral to explain how eczema and allergies are interlinked. It also gave a bit of an insight into the difficulties faced when dealing with multiple allergies and severe eczema.

I was interviewed by the lovely Sophie from Allergy UK, and she asked me questions which ended up unlocking a particularly difficult reaction that Callum had. It caused a knock-on effect with his eczema, making it flare dreadfully and resulted in a serious staph infection. Callum was dangerously ill and the A&E consultants initially suspected meningitis due to the way his skin looked.

It was a very frightening time, and we are so thankful that Callum pulled through.

You can see the video here.

 

Eczema has always been a big part of Callum’s journey

It started when he was just weeks old, initially as an angry rash on his face before eventually affecting his whole body.

It took months to get control back, and we’ve struggled ever since to keep it under control.

As a result, I’ve picked up many tips and tricks along the way of how to live with eczema, and key things to watch out for!

I’ve written about them and you can find them all here.

Knowing how hard it is to keep a good balance, using gentle washing powder, conditioner and so on definitely help.

Neutral gave us some of their range, and as a thank you to all of our lovely followers and supporters, we want to give these to one of you!

My eczema is mainly on my hands so I try not to over wash my hands and I moisturise regularly using non-scented hand creams for dry skin.
Great giveaway, many thanks :-) :-)

Avoid all fragrances and be consistent with applying creams (aqueous cream works best for me).

I test wash a trainer sock before using new detergent on bedding or clothing which limits any reaction to a relatively small area.

Great prize. There are some of us in the family with eczema and / or allergy. Finding the most appropriate products can be time consuming. Information, advice, support from peers ( others in a similar position) is hugely beneficial. Thank - you!

I find it hard to manage attacks i must admit. I find the best way is not to stop moisturising when attacks have eased. used natural produces and always rinse twice when washing clothes avoid stress and eat healthy

Just use common sense and stick to gentle laundry products and use bodycare products for sensitive skin. Avoid perfumed products and if you can afford specialist products all the better. Also, after bathing/showering, pat yourself dry with a towel rater than rubbing.

My hands are worst affected by eczema. I find that if I always wear gloves when in contact with water and even wearing hypoallergenic disposable gloves when I'm cleaning helps as dust seems to irritate it.

Wrap yourself up, wear jumpers and comfy trousers so you don't have the opening to freely itch. As well as this, keep at the right temperature, being too warm is going to cause irritation and you'll find yourself with the constant need to itch.

my daughter suffers eczema, as do i and my tips would be to avoid bathing too often but when you do, keep it warm rather than hot and pat skin rather than rubbing. moisturiser applied regularly and for my daughter we make sure her nails are always cut down and encourage her to put her cream on when she gets the urge to scratch, luckily hers isnt too severe but is irritating

For dealing with eczema i would steer well away from highly scented washing powders. I would also only use natural and organic skin care products and toiletries and hopefully this would help.
