Nah, I don’t have an eczema but I’m curious if floods really cause eczema. Why the sudden curiosity? Because wet season has started. It’s already raining from time to time and it is suspected that after the the El Nino, we will now be facing the effects of La NiÃ±a (God forbid) – the counter part of El NiÃ±o. I learned from research that eczema is a gene-related skin defect. Thus, flood could not cause eczema but could trigger an outbreak. There are other factors which could trigger eczema like harsh soaps and detergents, solvents, low humidity and other more. Some of its symptoms include red to brownish-gray colored patches, itching, which may become especially severe at night, Small, raised bumps, which may leak fluid and crust over when scratched, thickened, cracked, or scaly skin and raw, sensitive skin from scratching. Unfortunately, eczema is not curable but its outbreak can be controlled. This is a recurring disease. If you think, you have these symptoms, you can consult a dermatologist for appropriate eczema treatment.
