How to live better with Eczema?
Eczema is a skin problem that causes the skin to become red, itchy and inflamed. Eczema is not contagious.
Cause of Eczema
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. 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.”
The most important thing to remember is that eczema skin problem and its symptoms are different for everyone. Your eczema may not look the same on you as it does on another adult, or on your child. It may even appear in different areas of the body at different times.
Live better with longer eczema free period with Homeopathy
Homeopathic treatment of atopic dermatitis aims at treating the person having the ailment and not just the disease in isolation. Homoeopathy suggests that illness often develop owing to lowered resistance, or compromised immune function. Homeopathic medicines add zest to our immune mechanism. In other words, they gently propel the power of our immune system to scour the illness from its roots. Homeopathy avoids the use to external applications in treating eczema or any other skin disease. Homeopathy selects an appropriate remedy to treat the individual, keeping in mind their physical, mental and emotional states, family history and so on. Homeopathy sites the factors that trigger atopic dermatitis besides looking at the individual’s temperament, likes and dislikes. Atopic dermatitis is evidenced to respond to homeopathic treatment most favourably. Homoeopathy not only removes atopic dermatitis from the roots but prevents its recurrence which is a worrying prospect of conventional treatment. Homoeopathy also helps to get rid of the possibility of hypersensitive disorders such as allergies or asthma being triggered once atopic dermatitis is treated successfully.
Wear cotton clothing; try to maintain an even temperature in your surroundings, since rapid temperature changes can cause itching. Avoid clothes and bed covers made of scratchy synthetics, wool and other materials with a rough texture, as these can irritate the skin.
Hot baths can cause itching and increase dryness, tepid water is better.
Keeping finger nails short to help prevent damage to skin caused by scratching.
As far as possible, avoid any known triggers that you feel can aggravate atopic dermatitis.
After an active workout, or after engaging in some sports, dab sweat away with a damp and pat dry or shower as soon as you can, because sweating can irritate the skin and lead to itching.
