Symptom Spotter

From the foods that we eat, to the chemicals that we are exposed to daily, to dustmites & pet dander.  It can take a detective to work out which particular allergens are triggering eczema.  Although proper allergy testing can be extremely useful for detecting life-threatening allergies such as nut and egg, they are also notoriously unreliable in finding the root cause of eczema flare-ups.

Keeping a symptom diary can be a great way of becoming aware of any potential eczema triggers.  The more details you record, the easier it will be to spot any potential allergens.  This includes food & drink, detergents, creams, pollen, fabrics and rapid changes in temperature.  Against each day, rate your symptoms from 1 to 10, with 1 being good and 10 being very severe.
