Self-care isn’t just a wellness buzzword — it’s a key part of the equation for many health conditions, including atopic dermatitis (eczema). And any activity that helps you care for your symptoms and feel better counts.

Why is self-care so important?

“Since atopic dermatitis can be triggered by environmental and dietary factors, as well as stress, it is of utmost importance for you to practice self-care and reduce the risk of flare-ups,” says Jody Alpert Levine, MD, a dermatologist and director of dermatology at Plastic Surgery & Dermatology of NYC in New York City.

What’s more, for some people with atopic dermatitis, regular self-care may lessen the need for medication in the long run.

Alongside the usual treatments, these five expert-backed self-care tips can help keep your atopic dermatitis symptoms at bay.
