Skin Issues On The Rise, But No One Knows Why – Tips To Keep It Under Control As We Mark Eczema Awareness Week

May 5, 2021 Medical Tourism No Comments

Australia has one of the highest incidences of eczema in the world and sufferers of debilitating skin conditions seem to grow daily – the latest figures show that nearly one third of Australians will suffer eczema at some stage in their lives.

Melody Livingstone, CEO of MooGoo, an Australian skin care range for people with sensitive skin, eczema and dermatitis, says she’s seen a rise in the number of people suffering skin issues.

“Australia has one of the highest incidences of eczema in the world, and it is only getting worse – 50 years ago, only one in 10 Australian children suffered from it,” said Ms Livingstone

“Eczema can develop for a number of reasons, including climate, lifestyle, hygiene and genetics. The skin can easily become infected, causing pain, inflammation and lack of sleep,” she says.

“Research shows the number of cases of eczema is on the rise worldwide, but we don’t know why that is.”

“There are more people with eczema than ever before – we’re selling an eczema cream every two minutes.”

“As there is no proven cure for eczema, psoriasis and dermatitis, education and keeping the symptoms under control is critical.”

Ms Livingstone shares tips on how to manage eczema:

  •     Keep fingernails short to prevent scratching from breaking the skin and wear cotton mitts or gloves at night
  •     Wear 100% cotton or soft fabrics – avoiding rough, scratchy fibres and tight clothing
  •     Have lukewarm baths and showers
  •     Using hypoallergenic products and avoiding anything perfumed
  •     Gently pat, not rub, the skin dry with a soft towel
  •     Apply a moisturiser within three minutes after bathing to ‘lock in’ the moisture
  •     Avoid rapid changes of temperature and activities that raise a sweat
  •     Use sensitive skin washing powders and detergents
  •     Reduce daily stress
