#4 Anti-Allergy bedding and Pillowcases
Eczema is a skin condition defined by inflamed, itchy, red patches that appear due to dermatitis reacting to some sort of factor. Occasionally this reaction may be related to allergies, although genetics and environmental influences are also often the culprit.
No matter the severity of the reaction the result is often uncomfortable and interrupts your daily functions, including sleep.
Since sleep is a critical part of the healing process, it is important to address the triggers that may cause these reactions to ensure that your lack of sleep is not a cause. To help get the rest your body needs for recovery.Therefore eliminating the risk of Allergies when sleeping seems a sensible thing to do.
There are many specialist bedding companies that have a good range of Eczema/anti-allergy bedding but we found some on Amazon at a great price.

#5 Room Temperature monitor
One of the best ways to aid sleep for an Eczema sufferer is room temperature and humidity. So monitoring the room temperature is vital, You may think the room is fine but just guessing can be a bad decision.
Whilst you may not be able to control temperatures outdoors, the range of temperature indoors is usually within your control.
To keep your home cool, you should try air conditioning. In addition, keep your thermostat settings low to avoid dry air from getting to your skin.
Make sure that whatever you are using to lower the temperature of your environment does not dry out your skin. Therefore, do not cool your skin with sources of dry wind. Try cool mist humidifiers instead.

#6 Shower filter attachments
Many people who have Eczema or other dry skin conditions find that chlorine is harsh and abrasive on their skin. Some people avoid swimming entirely as it can lead to Eczema flare-ups. The chlorine in swimming pools can strip skin and hair of its natural oils and proteins. This can lead to tight, red, itchy skin and dry hair. Severe Eczema flare-ups can be very painful and uncomfortable. Chlorine fumes can also be inhaled into the lungs, aggravating asthma symptoms, which are commonly connected with Eczema.
If you have Eczema and you find that your condition gets worse when you go swimming, then we highly recommend that you do not expose your skin to chlorine in your bath or shower.
In the UK, this chemical is added to all of our municipal water supplies to kill bacteria and this can aggravate your skin condition. These filters reduce the amount of Chlorine when showering. Most can be fitted simply to existing showers.

If you have Eczema you know dry air during the winter months only makes your skin feel worse. You may be suffering more than necessary if you aren’t using a humidifier. Adding moisture to the air in your home and office will make a big difference in the feel of your skin and nasal passages. In fact, a humidifier is an essential tool to help you manage Eczema. It’s the same reason moisturising Eczema treatments like wet wrap therapy work for Eczema. Dry skin has more cracks just like a desert landscape, but add in moisture and the skin barrier will become smoother, keeping allergens out and lessening the chance of an eczema flare.

#10 UV-C Portable Wand – kills 99% of bacteria, viruses and mold
No matter where you live, what you do for a living, or who you surround yourself with, you are prone to run into germs and other microorganisms every single day. While there are plenty of ways to deter the transfer of anything truly nasty to you and your families such as hand sanitizers and anti-bacterial sprays, are those really the best ways to go about removing vast quantities of germs and bacteria from areas such as bathrooms, kitchen counters, and any other environments which are highly trafficked and susceptible to being a breeding ground for these microorganisms?
There is another potential way to eliminate microbes from the environments that you and your family spend the most amount of time in. Sanitizing wands are relatively new when it comes to using it in the home, but the technology behind them has been used in hospitals, food processing plants, and water treatment plants for quite some time. Does this technology actually work though when sold as a consumer grade UV-C wand?
In short, the answer is yes, however, individuals buying these products must know the proper way to use them. While they are generally simple to use, there are several variables that must be known prior to using a sanitizing wand on a given surface. The wand must be held in the right position, for the proper amount of time, and the surface must be nearly perfectly smooth, otherwise, the microorganisms have the ability to hide from the UV-C rays.
How will you know if the wand is working properly? Unfortunately, similar to chemical cleaners that are used to disinfect surfaces in the home, you will not be able to tell visually if the wand is working. However, as with chemical cleaners, you will begin to be able to feel if a surface is disinfected, as well, any organic smells that were the result of dead or dying microorganism will begin to disappear.
It is important to note that while these products are extremely useful in regards to cleaning and disinfecting a home, proper cautionary measures need to be taken when using them. Always follow the instructions.
