Liquid fabric softener isn't good either as it will affect the fabric as well. One great alternative that I just found out about are "dryer balls". I'm not sure they're actual name or where you even get them but they're a safe, non-chemical alternative to fabric softener sheets. They look like rubber tennis balls w/ knobby things on them (almost like a dog toy of some sort to be honest)... I just visited my parents in FL and did some laundry while I was there, my mom had them and said she loves them, I must say they did a really good job on my Fred Perry shirts

Brother, I have been in the same boat as you for years. So much that I quit hockey for a while.

I had seen tons of Dermatologists. All prescribed stuff that was great short term, then came back after your skin got used to it. Plus most Cortizone creams make your skin thinner an sensitive.

Then I got a good dermatologist. The same one that treats the Montreal Canadiens. Good knows these guys have the worst conditions. Always in sweaty equipement.

He prescribed Ultravate. It changed my life. I have been using it for 10 years now. Freaking great. I need another type of cream for my face, and it is much less effective, but still, controllable.

During hockey season, there is always some irritation, but now, it is soooo much better and completely liveable. I work as a Regional Sales Director and meet lots of high end clients, I cannot look like a walking sore.

This stuff allowed me to play the game I love, and also have a life.

Check it out. It may work for you as well.

Ultravate

Ultravate
It appears that both drugs are fairly similar, both corticosteroids, just different brand names. corticostreoid brand names

Ultravate
its looking much better and the cream seems to be working good.

the weird thing is, during the summer when i downhill mountain bike. i wear upper body armour (chest plate, elbowpads, spinal protector) and leg pads all the time and i never get any signs of eczema or itchyness. i also sweat much more when i mountain bike up and down a mountain and there is much more repetitive rubbing of the same spots.

my condition seems to disappear over the summer and recur during the dry winters.

In high school, for a month I had rashes all over my body... chin, thighs, legs, feet, chest, hands... I washed all my stuff with baking soda, got new gloves and all was better.

Whats up with that CPTJEFF? in the other hockey injury post you rip the guy telling him to consult a doctor and here in this post its no big deal. Youth athletes are ending up DEAD from untreated rashes (MRSA)!

In a perfect world...

Alcohol spray, and then keep it dry. Dry it after every game. And an undershirt. Reebok stuff isn't too expensive, I recommend a compression shirt. Short or long sleeve, both work.

My RBK compression shirt ran me $10.

That makes total sense. The more you expose your skin to the cold the more dry and cracked it will become and the easier it is for harmful bacteria to gain a foothold. Each skin layer is a level of defense and the deeper you go the thinner the layer is. The deeper the bacteria gets the more damage it does. Chances are you don't have the same dry skin in summer that you have in winter so it's not as likely to get under your skin.

BTW, it's a very good idea to cover up any cuts or abrasions before putting on hockey gear -- if the bacteria has free access to your bloodstream you could have a serious problem on your hands.

Same here. Damn bad skin. I blame my father

The one thing that also helps in the summer is a lot of sunshine and salt/chlorine from swimming. I wonder if tanning beds would be beneficial....

It has nothing to do with being in a perfect world and everything to do with using common sense. Many of the common household chemicals we all take for granted would be considered hazardous chemicals requiring specific PPE(personal Protective Equipment) if used in an industrial setting! Reading a products consumer label doesnt hurt,either.

A former co-worked had battled Eczema for his entire life. The zinc cream offered great help and he had prescribed tanning sessions during the winter months(Buffalo NY). He felt that the tanning bed sessions not only impoved his skin condition but also helped his emotional state, feeling less depressed during the dark winter months. Health insurance picked up the tab.

I just got it and now my skin is cracking. It feels like fire and I know it's not sunburn because it happened during playoffs

Knock on wood, I've never had any problems. I always wear a long sleeve moisture-wicking shirt and knee-length soccer socks, and wash these after games, while only rinsing my equipment like once per season. I air my stuff out a lot, too, which probably helps keep bacteria from building up. Some guys seem to only ever take their **** out of their bag right before game time, and you can practically smell them coming from the parking lot.

The young goalie for Pitt, Matt Murray, has a really bad case of the rash. Look at his forehead and neck areas.
