I have had eczema (unknown cause) confined almost entirely to my lower chest and abdomen for about 20 years, treated with steroid creams and moisturizers.
I know that certain clothing, particularly synthetics like polyester, and also wool, is supposedly bad for eczema.
My question: Does this just apply for clothing in close contact with skin? Or can I wear synthetics or wool layered over , say, a cotton undershirt or shirt with no problem?
How about down jackets? Synthetic/wool jackets? Do the layers underneath provide a sufficient barrier?
Thanks in advance.
