Lanolin works as an emollient, and emollients can help to soothe and hydrate eczema-prone skin.
However, some people find that products that contain lanolin can aggravate their eczema, so be aware that although this can work for many people, it may not be right for you.
If you have eczema and need a way to soothe your dry, irritated skin without causing further irritation, speak to your doctor or pharmacist for advice.

What causes dry skin?
When your skin is dry you may experience scaly or flaky skin or skin that has fine lines or cracks.
If you touch your skin, it may feel rough and sensitive or even a little painful.
There are many factors that can cause dry skin from the weather to spending too long in the shower Whenever we leave the house, our skin is exposed to the elements, from UV rays to freezing temperatures.
Our skin is at particular risk during the winter months, as temperatures plummet and humidity is reduced, which dries out our skin.
Again, in winter, we are more likely to turn up the thermostat or light the fire, which may feel lovely after a day out in the cold, but sources of heat in our homes reduce the moisture in the air, which can cause our skin to lose hydration.
Taking hot showers and baths with harsh soaps or detergents, can damage our skin through dehydration and stripping the skin of its natural oils.
Spending lots of time in chlorinated water, such as swimming pools and hot tubs can also strip our skin, leaving it dry.
