Studies have indicated that the incidence of eczema can be related to water hardness. Hard water is identified as an environmental trigger in the NICE (2007) guidelines on atopic eczema in children 12 years and under 7. Hard water areas are common with more than 60% of households in England and Wales affected.
Kinetico Premier Compact Water Softeners provides the home with a continuous supply of soft water. There are many anecdotal records by doctors and eczema sufferers, of eczema conditions improving or completely disappearing when the patient moves into a soft water area, or when water softeners are fitted to homes in hard water areas.
It has been suggested that hard water can cause or exacerbate eczema due to use of excessive amounts of soap for washing, or due to skin contact with the soap scum, which results from a reaction of the soap with the hardness minerals.
