Eczema occurs in certain infants with rashes normally occurring on the elbows, cheeks, or knees. Although less common in adulthood, eczema can persist if a person is exposed to chemical irritants and allergens or is under stress.
Don’t use anything with sodium laurel sulfate or something similar. Parabens are also typically a no-no. Stick to fruit-based or all-natural shampoos, preferably unscented, to impose as little irritation to your scalp as possible. Some good options include shampoos with coconut and yucca-based surfactants.
There are several home remedies for eczema itch and one of them is using herbal remedies for the same. Add baking soda to your bath water and soaking in it for up to an hour even has been shown to relieve eczema itch. So also, adding colloidal oatmeal (finely ground) to the bath is known to be an excellent solution for an eczema itch. The oatmeal not only stops the itch, but also binds the wound together and thereby helps in the healing process. Refrain from using this in your bath if the wound is still raw and oozing.
