In brief: Many possibilities

The primary triggers for eczema flare-ups are food exposures, changes in weather/temperature, using the wrong soaps and moisturizers, and environmental allergens (pets, dust mites).

In brief: Depends.............

Eczema can flare up because of myriad stresses to the body----such as teething, an infection(usually viral), or even environmental exposures, such as pollen, trees, dust etc.

I often think of eczema as a combination of dryness and allergy so avoid the allergens and stay hydrated
