 Some of us have experienced some form of eczema or have loved ones living with eczema. We need to understand the importance of identifying the cause factors and rid, reduce or avoid its presence in order not to trigger eczema.

All too often we blame dust mite bites as the cause of eczema. Our air is also a trigger. This is even more true for the air in our homes. Here are a few ways the air in your home could be affecting your eczema and causing flare-ups:
The air in your home has more chemicals than you think. These chemicals are often referred to as Volatile Organic Compounds. VOCs are in a variety of home used aerosols, cleaning agents and plenty of other products. They are commonly identified to be Formaldehyde, Benzene, and Acetone. They are also in in paint and household furniture. Exposure to VOCs can damage your skin’s natural protective  barrier, causing dry skin and inflammation.
Dust is everywhere within home including within the air that we breathe. How could air be contributing to eczema. We now know air is the carrier of VOC's mentioned above, Dust and dust mites fill the home indoor air. Dust and dust mites irritate the skin. The VOC's deplete the skin 's protection giving way for dust mites to initiate bacterial infection. The common cleaning techniques to get rid of dust, do more harm than good.

Poor Ventilation
Indoor air is the "dirtiest air" and can be anything from five to ten time more polluted than outdoors. Modern homes have stopped allowing inflow and outflow of air. Ventilation is nil. Blame it on architecture. It is important to keep air exchanged all the time. Trapped indoor air is filled with chemicals, VOC's, dust, dust mites and other air borne particulates.

These are the common trigger factor of eczema flare ups.
