Always listen to the advice of your doctor to get professional help with any kind of illness. This information is not intended to diagnose, treat, cure, or prevent any disease.
We don’t know exactly what causes eczema; researchers believe a combination of environmental factors and genetics are involved.
There are things that can trigger eczema and make it worse:
There are everyday products and even natural substances that can cause your skin to burn and itch, or become dry and red.
These could be products that you use on your body or in your home — hand and dish soap, laundry detergent, shampoo, bubble bath and body wash, or surface cleaners and disinfectants.
Some common eczema irritants include:
- Metals, in particular, nickel
- Cigarette smoke
- Soaps and household cleaners
- Certain fabrics such as wool and polyester
- Antibacterial ointment like neomycin and bacitracin
- Formaldehyde, which is found in household disinfectants, some vaccines, glues and adhesives
- Isothiazolinones an antibacterial that is found in personal care products like baby wipes
- Cocamidopropyl betaine used to thicken shampoos and lotions
- Paraphenylene-diamine, which is used in leather dyes and temporary tattoos, among others
CLIMATE AND SWEATING
This information was found on National Eczema Association’s Page.
People with eczema tend to have an over-reactive immune system that, when triggered by an allergen or irritant, attacks the body instead of protecting it. This results in too much inflammation, which leads to red, itchy and painful skin.
Wynnya offers ECZEMA CREAM in a 50ml blue jar.

Lotions and creams are created from a mixture of water and oils. Without the addition of emulsifying wax, they too would separate back into water and oils.
