I know, I know. We all love things that smell nice. This was probably one of the most challenging realizations I had to make in my family's eczema journey. I loved scented candles, plug-in room refreshers, scented fabric softeners, and perfumes. The truth is, fragrances (both chemically and naturally derived) are the most common eczema trigger and, very simply, require avoidance.
