Are you suffering from eczema on breast? Breast eczema can be uncomfortable and, depending on the degree of severity, it can even be painful. It can also make people self-conscious of their appearance and can have a negative effect on relationships. In this post, we’ll share natural, home remedies, soothing clothing, and simple lifestyle changes that can help you heal eczema on breast.
Symptoms of Breast Eczema
Like all types of eczema, breast eczema is characterized by redness, dryness, and scaling or cracked skin. There will also be itchiness – particularly on the nipple. Small bumps that may crack or ooze fluid may appear, particularly if there is repeated scratching. Scratching can also lead to swollen or overly-sensitive skin. Symptoms will likely occur under or in between your breasts, as well as on the rest of your chest area. Bear in mind that everyone is different and symptoms may vary from person to person.
When it comes to treating breast eczema, it’s highly important to seek medical attention to clarify it’s not another serious condition like Paget’s disease. This is a rare form of cancer associated with breast cancer that causes eczema-like changes to the skin of the nipple.
Natural Eczema on Breast Treatment
Due to the sensitive nature of the breasts, you want to choose natural and gentle products to soothe discomfort. That’s why we suggest this creamy oil-based Organic Manuka Skin Soothing Cream. Highly nourishing, it’s made with just six ingredients, including manuka honey and manuka oil. These are both renowned for their anti-inflammatory and antibacterial properties. Try this thick cream to soothe red, itchy, and inflamed skin. It’s safe and effective to use anywhere on the body, including sensitive areas like the nipples and breasts.
When it comes to washing, many soaps can aggravate the skin because of the harsh chemicals and toxins they contain. We recommend you opt for a natural soap, such as this Coconut and Sunflower Oil Soap Bar. All natural with only three ingredients, it cleanses the skin without exacerbating dryness or irritation.
