Eczema can be described as a chronic, non-contagious skin condition that can manifest in many ways. Atopic eczema and atopic seborrhoeic, infantile eczema and varicose, are just a few examples of this skin disorder. Atopic dermatitis is the most common, and is often seen in children and infants.
Let’s understand it
Dyshidrotic eczema is more common in warmer climates than nummular eczema which is more common in winter. An eczema flareup can cause itching and rashes. These may include red, brownish, dry, thickened, leathery, crusty, flaky, or scaly skin. These can also manifest as small bumps or blisters that ooze fluid. Sometimes, the skin becomes thicker, more reddened and rougher. Eczema rashes can become more severe if the skin is scratched.
Eczema rashes can be found on the arms, legs and chest. Children often experience rashes on their cheeks, elbows, knees, and skin folds. Eczema is thought to be caused by an immune system impairment. Eczema sufferers often have relatives with hay fever, asthma, or eczema. Anti-itch topical medication, including antihistamines, is the standard treatment. This only treats the symptoms and does not cure eczema.
Eczema is a condition that has no known cure. Eczema is a chronic skin condition that can recur every now and again. Eczema is a chronic skin condition that cannot be treated. However, there are many management strategies that can be used to manage it, reduce itching and discomfort, and prolong the interval between recurrences. There are many home remedies for eczema and skin care methods that can be used to effectively manage it.
Home remedies for eczema include natural ingredients and herbs that can be made into lotions and pastes. These can then be applied to the rashes and affected areas. They have been shown to be effective in relieving itching and inflammation. Some herbal ingredients that can be used are virgin coconut oil, blueberry leaf, mashed papaya seed, turmeric powder and bitter neem. Eczema can also be treated with probiotics (or “good bacteria”).
These live microorganisms help to strengthen the immune system, which can reduce eczematous inflammation. Probiotics are typically taken in liquid form, such as acidophilus and lactobacillus. Other home remedies for eczema include cabbage, tomato juice and vitamin E, vitamin B12 and vitamin A, neem (which can be used topically or as a supplement), yellow dock, fish oils, and apple cider vinegar. Many of these remedies have immune-boosting and anti-inflammatory properties. Eczema sufferers should avoid ginger, onions and radish as well as cucumbers, spices, oils, and spices.
These foods have high mineral content and can irritate skin and worsen eczema. To relieve itching, apply cold or wet compresses to the affected area. Avoid using harsh soaps or chemicals on the skin.
- Only use water when it is necessary. Excessive washing can dry the skin and cause eczema.
- Only use tepid water. Avoid using hot or warm water. To prevent skin drying, moisturize often. Avoid wearing rough or woolly fabrics and wear loose, cool, soft clothes.
- Avoid allergens that can cause skin irritation or inflammation, such as pollen, dust and animal fur, smoke, and specific foods.
These home remedies have been used for decades and are well-tested. These home remedies are safe and have no side effects. They also provide relief from the symptoms associated with eczema.
