All Free & Clear wants to help those dealing with eczema and fall allergies this season. And now with the colder weather, the air is even drier which means – even more dry, itchy skin! Here are some helpful tips for protecting your family’s skin & health:
The Fall Season brings allergies back into our lives, with more than 50 million people suffering from some form of Allergies in this country. According to the National Eczema Foundation, as many as 30 million Americans may have it! The key is to learn more about it to help you understand treatment – especially when it comes to kids. Here are three smart ways to address Eczema and Fall Allergies in your family.
1) Be ready with this Eczema prevention check list:
- Moisturize every day.
- Wear cotton or soft fabrics. Avoid rough, scratchy fibers and tight clothing.
- Take lukewarm baths and showers, using mild soap or non-soap cleanser
- Gently pat your skin dry with a soft towel – do not rub.
- Apply a moisturizer within 3 minutes after bathing to “lock in” moisture.
- When possible, avoid rapid changes of temperature and activities that make you sweat.
- Learn your eczema triggers and avoid them.
- Use a humidifier in dry or cold weather.
- Keep your fingernails short to help keep scratching from breaking the skin.

2) Know the Truth About Fall Allergens
- Ragweed is the biggest allergy trigger in the fall. Though the yellow-flowering weed usually starts releasing pollen in August, it can last into September and October.
- For some people who are allergic to ragweed, foods like bananas, melon, zucchini, and certain other fruits and vegetables can also cause symptoms.
- Mold is another fall trigger. Piles of damp leaves are ideal breeding grounds for mold.
- Don’t forget dust mites. While they are common during the humid summer months, they can get stirred into the air the first time you turn on your heat in the fall.
- Schools are breeding grounds for mold and dust mites which trigger allergies in kids.
