Eczema is a general term for many types of skin inflammation (dermatitis). There are many different forms of eczema. Symptoms include itchy, reddened, dry skin. The common causes for this type of skin irritation may include dryness, soaps or detergents, cleaning products, rubber gloves and even some lotions. Those with hand eczema can experience symptom relief by avoiding scratching, use plenty of moisturizer, and limiting exposure to the sun by wearing protective gloves.
Protexgloves limit exposure to irritants while allowing the skin to breathe. They can be worn after applying moisturizer as the nylon fabric is not absorptive like cotton. Protexgloves can be machine washed and dried for easy care.
