What can I do about eczema on my face?
Eczema is most common in areas with a low ‘skin barrier reserve’ (areas with more vulnerable skin) which is why many people suffer from eczema on face and the neck.1 As eczema sufferers know, flare-ups or chronic eczema on face can be very difficult, both physically and emotionally.
There are a number of eczema treatments that your healthcare professional can recommend if your facial eczema is affecting your life. These range from topical creams such as corticosteroid creams or ointments, to oral treatments that help to control inflammation or itchiness. Alternative treatment options such as light therapy can also be considered.2 Whether you choose to incorporate use of any of these eczema treatments is up to you, however there are still things you can do in your everyday life to help manage your facial eczema.
