Eczema is a skin inflammation that affects people of all ages. The condition is also known as dermatitis. There are many different forms of eczema and the cause of the condition is unknown, but it is related to the immune system not functioning properly. Your skin may appear red and dry. Your skin may also feel like it is burning or the skin itches and then feels like it is on fire. One remedy for eczema is applying a layer of Noxzema to the irritated skin.
Apply Noxzema cream to the irritated areas of your skin when you first awake in the morning and before you go to bed at night. Make sure you don't rub the irritated skin with a rough cloth or towel. Also, try not to touch the eczema-infected skin throughout the day. If your skin itches, apply Noxzema immediately to the itchy area. Noxzema cools and stops the eczema from having a “burning sensation.” Noxzema will also help return your eczema-infected skin to its original color.
Continue applying Noxzema cream to your eczema until the condition has eased—usually within a month. Do not completely discontinue using the cream. Instead of applying it two times a day, only apply it before bed. This will keep your eczema from flaring up.
Noxzema is a cleanser, developed in 1914, that not only helps ease eczema but also sunburn and other skin issues you may be having. Noxzema contains eucalyptus, camphor and menthol. It leaves your skin cool and smooth. The cleanser is available in cream form, on moist cloths and other forms. When treating your eczema, use the original cream form until the condition has eased then try the other forms if you want. The cloths may be ideal for throughout the day treatment of itchy eczema areas.
Noxzema cream and related-products can be found at drug stores, retail stores, pharmacies and online.
