The Dangers of Using Petroleum on Eczema

Eczema, is a skin fungus that can come from harsh chemicals, chemicals used the wrong way, fragrance, dairy products, animal products, etc. It is just one of the many different types of skin fungi. Like many other fungal problems, it could be hard to get rid of. It is a tough and frustrating problem to deal with on a daily basis. The itch and burning sensation can make you feel uncomfortable throughout the day. Sometimes, it even affects you year-round. During the summer some people with eczema experience worsened problems due to sweat and moistness throughout the day. Wet and moistness can help feed the fungi and make it grow. It can be equally frustrating during the winter because It causes skin to be dryer but no less itchy which makes it more breakable if touched.

As previously mentioned, there are many ways skin fungus like eczema develops. One way it can develop is from petroleum based products such as Aquaphor and Vaseline. These products may look or feel like they are helping your eczema but in reality once you stop using it your eczema comes back. These products are made to only hide your eczema or treat it so it wouldn’t bother you as much. This helps the companies that make these products keep more money in their pocket and retain their clients.

Products like these can actually do more harm than your body then help. Petroleum is known to prevent the skin from healing and block pores.
