If you have breakouts on the face, body or hands, then you probably want to know how to get rid of eczema (एक्ज़िमा) fast. Well, you’re on the right page! It may seem difficult to deal with at first, but the good news is that by doing the right things, you can get rid of it.
What is eczema (एक्ज़िमा)?
Eczema is a medical term used to describe skin inflammation. The word eczema originates from a Greek word which means “to boil over”. With eczema, certain areas of the skin become red, itchy, and inflamed. Dermatologists categorize anything with red itchy skin symptoms as eczema. There are two types of eczema: Atopic dermatitis and contact dermatitis. Recently, scientists found a third type of eczema called irritant dermatitis.
Common eczema symptoms (एक्ज़िमा के लक्षण)
Some of the common eczema symptoms include:
- Itchy and dry skin
- Small bumps on the skin
- Discolored patches of skin ranging from brownish-grey to red
- Areas of thick and scaly skin
Eczema symptoms are not easy to deal with as these can disturb your sleep patterns and interrupt your daily activities with itching. However, the good thing is that several treatments are available which can help to improve the symptoms.
How long does it take to get rid of eczema? (एक्जिमा से छुटकारा पाने में कितना समय लगता है?)
The standard treatment for eczema is cortisone creams and you might see results within 5-10 days of using it. However, it may take longer for your skin to clear depending on how severe the inflammation on the skin. Studies suggest that a trigger identification and avoidance strategy can help most people see clear skin in 7-14 days. This involves actively avoiding the thing or trigger that’s causing the breakout. Because you remove what’s causing the red itchy skin, results can last a long time. (Source: NCBI)
The good news about eczema is that it normally doesn’t affect your everyday life, and most people won’t even notice it. If you have a flareup right now you’re probably wondering how long it takes to get rid of it.
The most common treatments (prescribed by most doctors and dermatologists), are cortisone or steroid creams. However, recent studies suggest that topical steroid creams should only be used occasionally and not as long-term treatment. (Source: NIH)
Those of us who are looking for a more permanent solution to eczema, may benefit from doing a trigger identification and avoidance strategy. Basically, identifying what the thing is that is making you break-out, and then taking measures to avoid it.

- Reduce redness on the face
To get remove redness on the face, it’s helpful to have a daily skin care routine. Every day, wash your face with a gentle cleanser or water, pat the skin dry on the areas that are inflamed to soothe them, and then use a water-based moisturizer such as a cream or lotion to lock in moisture and reduce redness. This can really help to reduce inflammation fast!
Looking into your facial soaps, cleansers, and make-up products can help to see if there are harsh ingredients such as sulphates, exfoliants, or fragrance that might be causing your skin to break out.
Eczema on the face is typically patches of red and inflamed skin. This makes facial dermatitis especially difficult for children and adults to deal with, as it can be quite obvious and apparent!
Inflammation can also worsen due to outdoor triggers such as poor air quality such as pollution, dust, and dry weather. Because the skin has very little protection, it’s important to remove potential irritants and triggers.
- Improve hand breakouts
Covering your hands with gloves before coming into contact with chemicals and irritants can help to get rid of eczema on the hands. You can also try soaking your hands in saline solution to get rid of excess bacteria that may be aggravating the skin. Additionally, a daily routine using a moisturizer with calming ingredients such as colloidal oatmeal works wonders to soothe any rash on the hands.
Hand eczema is usually rough, dry and inflamed. It can also appear as small filled blisters known as dyshidrotic eczema. What causes eczema on the hands can be things like bacteria, chemicals and/or irritants such as harsh sulphates in hand soap and chemicals in tap water.
Studies suggest that hand eczema might be more common with people in specific occupational groups like hairdressers, bakers, and nurses. This can be perhaps due to the high exposure of irritants. (Source: Science Direct)
