Economy causing Eczema Flareups

We all know that stress is considered a major trigger of eczema flareups.  A survey carried out by Canadian researchers earlier this year indicated that the troubled economy should be added to the list of things triggering eczema flareups.
The survery showed that emotional factors — including stress — were reported to be the most common cause of flare-ups in three out of four eczema sufferers.
The national online survey developed in consultation with Dr. Marlene Dytoc, an Edmonton dermatologist produced some interesting results. Below are the results as reported in on the 10th February2009:
“Eczema was reported to have far-reaching effects on sufferers’ lives, with 36 percent of adults reporting that they attempt to conceal their eczema. In addition, 29 percent reported problems concentrating at work or school, 28 percent were unable to sleep at night and 27 reported difficulty playing certain sports.
Difficulty sleeping at night was the primary complaint of 43 percent of the children.”
