Dr. Peredo describes what makes eczema symptoms worse.
Certain weather conditions -- that normally patients with eczema do worse in the winter times when the weather is dry. Certain harsh chemicals – I normally tell patients to avoid products that have fragrance in them. Certain clothing, such as wool -- so patients with eczema should pretty much stay, use cotton. White clothing is going to be less irritating.
