Homeopathy for Eczema
Eczema is the name for a group of conditions that cause the skin to become red, itchy and inflamed.
Eczema is not contagious. You can’t “catch it” from someone else. While the exact cause of eczema is unknown, researchers do know that people who develop eczema do so because of a combination of genes and environmental triggers. When an irritant or an allergen “switches on” the immune system, skin cells don’t behave as they should be causing an eczema flare-up.
Eczema is usually itchy. For many people, the itch is usually only mild, or moderate. But in some cases it can become much worse and you might develop extremely inflamed skin. Sometimes the itch gets so bad that people scratch it until it bleeds, which can make your eczema worse. This is called the “itch-scratch cycle.”
What to look for:
- Dry, sensitive skin
- Red, inflamed skin
- Very bad itching
- Dark colored patches of skin
- Rough, leathery or scaly patches of skin
- Oozing or crusting
- Areas of swelling
You might have all of these symptoms of eczema or only just a few. You might have some flare ups or your symptoms could go away entirely. But the only way to know if you have eczema for sure is to visit your doctor so he or she can look at your skin and ask you about your symptoms.
Homoeopathy for Eczema
Conventional modes of treatments are based on immunosuppressant. They may clear the skin in a few days to few weeks but it would recur as soon as the effect of the medicine wears off.
Topical treatments like creams/ ointments reduce the itching and inflammation temporarily but it would return with more intensity. Homoeopathy helps to stimulate body's natural healing capacity and restores the deviated immunity back to normalcy.
Artificial Ultra-violet light therapies are known to cause burns but Homoeopathy has no such side-effects.
Homoeopathy is non-addictive and can also eliminate the need to consume conventional medicine.
If Homoeopathy is considered as treatment option in the early stage of the disease, then the overall control of the disease in future is much better.
Homoeopathic medicine helps to deal with stress more effectively and helps control the intensity of complaints during seasonal variations.
Homoeopathy uses natural medicines in potentised form which is extremely effective and absolutely free from any side effects.
In any skin affection there is often an underlying psychosomatic factor. Homoeopathy can help treat this factor very effectively without causing dependence or addiction.
