Adele: “I Have Eczema From Boiling Bottles”

Adele was surprised when she won Best Original Song for Skyfall at the Golden Globes on Sunday (January 13).

People reports the singer exclaimed on stage, “Oh my God, oh my God, oh my God. Honestly I came for a night out – with my friend Ayda – we’re new mums. I was not expecting this. Thank you so much.”

She added, “Very strange to be here, thank you so much for letting me be a part of your world for a night, it’s amazing – and we’ve been pissing ourselves laughing! I’d like to thank the Hollywood Foreign Press, I never thought I’d say that. And this is for my boyfriend who convinced me to do it … and my lovely son. Thank you so much.”

Backstage she told reporters, “It is a huge responsibility and a lot of pressure. That movie was huge. And I was pregnant. I had my child about two weeks before the film came out. So it was bad timing.”

She didn’t want to reveal the name of her son – who was born in October.

“I am exhausted, that’s how [motherhood] changed me. I have eczema from boiling bottles. I am not sharing his name at the moment. It is very personal to me. I am enjoying him on my own.”

She’s only in her early 20’s, but she looks much older mainly due to her hair and clothes (i.e. she’s not covered in wrinkles!)


I don’t think you can get a skin condition from boiling bottles. I’m pretty sure that’s false…..I don’t think she knows what she’s talking about. What’s she doing sticking her hands in boiling water? Boiling bottles wouldn’t cause eczema.


Yes it does!! Same thing happened to me. I was miserable. The heat irritates sensitive skin. I could not take the rashes and just stuck to running the bottles under hot tap water.


Boiling bottles can cause an eczema OUTBREAK. You have to already have it, but things like hot water or steam will cause outbreaks. I get terrible eczema outbreaks on my hands if I wash dishes too often, or get bleach on my hands, even if it’s diluted. So no, you can’t acquire the condition itself from hot water, but you certainly can get an outbreak from it.


No you don’t need to already have it. Eczema can be caused be environmental factors too.

Yes in deed a person with no history of eczema can get it one day and worsen thereafter simply by exposing your skin to water more often than usual.

It happened to me.

Let us not forget that pregnancy/breastfeeding hormones can play into this.


Pregnancy hormones can cause eczema… not boiling bottles. smh…
