Natural humidity control

If your home becomes too dry especially in the winter, open the windows and let some humidity in. Alternatrively you can place a bowl of water in the room near the radiators. This will help add moisture. If your home is damp and showing signs of mould and mildew you will need to be careful about condensation from showering, cooking and bathing. Remember not to dry clothes on the radiator as this produces a lot of moisture which then encourages mould growth. If you have a separate room you can use, dry the clothes in there and keep the window slightly open, or dry the clothes in an externally vented dryer.

Temperature control

Keep your living area warm enough for comfort but not so that you overheat. When you bath and shower, make sure that the water is not too hot as this will exaccerbate your eczema.
