How to Treat Eczema Blisters Naturally

Did you know that eczema blisters can be a common symptom of various types of eczema? You can learn all about blistering eczema and which natural treatments can bring needed relief below.

Types of Eczema Blisters

There are a variety of eczema types that produce eczema blisters. 

Dyshidrotic Eczema

Blisters on the soles of feet and sides of fingers. They are extremely itchy and can cause scaly skin patches of irritated skin. Learn more about dyshidrotic eczema.

Allergic Contact Dermatitis

Some allergens, such as different types of foods, fragrances, or materials (such as nickel), can cause eczema blisters. The eczema blistering can eventually break open (weeping eczema) and cause an infection.

Irritant Contact Dermatitis

Irritants such as harsh chemicals, detergents, dyes, or more can aggravate the skin and cause blistering dermatitis. This is known as contact dermatitis. To prevent further flare-ups, removing the irritant from your environment as best as possible is essential to avoid infection.
