Is eczema merely a 'khujli'?

Eczema, also known as dermatitis, is characterized by red, inflamed and itchy skin that often leads to chronic scratching. However, eczema is much more than just ‘khujli.’ We all experience an itch once in a while, but when it is frequent and leads to irritation, redness, eruptions or flaking, it is time for you to visit the doctor, as these are eczema symptoms.

Whether you are born with it or you develop it later in life, eczema can be painful and socially embarrassing. It causes a big drain on quality of life. So, what can you do to get your skin back to normal? Can eczema be treated? Yes. Eczema can be effectively treated without side-effects with homeopathy, which offers treatment with natural and safe medicines.

How are eczema symptoms different than a normal ‘khujli’?

Here are symptoms to help you identify eczema at your end. Though symptoms vary from person to person, below are some common symptoms of eczema:

  • Dry and itchy skin where itching is continuous & severe
  • Redness and swelling
  • Skin eruptions are seen on affected areas
  • There is chronic scratching that leads to thickening of skin
  • Flaking of skin
  • In some cases, oozing might occur from the eruptions
  • Darkening of skin can be seen in long standing cases.

In children suffering from eczema, the areas commonly affected are the nappy area, scalp, face, neck, and forearms.

So, if you see any of these symptoms, please visit a skin specialist immediately, who will diagnose the type of eczema you have and the possible cause for it.   

Eczema causes & types

A tendency to eczema often runs in families. If one or both parents suffer from eczema, it is more likely that their children will suffer from it too.

Certain allergens, which mean substances that cause allergic reaction in an individual, can also cause eczema. These allergens can be:

  • Food products like milk & milk products, fish, soy, eggs, and peanuts
  • Products like soaps, detergents, cosmetics, perfumes, certain forms of clothing, jewellery, and metals such as nickel
  • House dust or animal dander can trigger eczema  
  • Stress, anxiety and other emotional problems can make your eczema worse. Eczema triggered by stress is known as neuro-dermatitis.

Seborrhoeic dermatitis is a type of eczema that commonly affects the head and area behind the ears, which show features of reddish rashes with yellowish, oily flakes. It is commonly seen in people with oily skin and scalp, and varies depending on the season.

Eczema can lead to various complications such as skin infections, sleep and behavioural problems, among others. Treatment is therefore necessary to avoid complications.

Homeopathy treatment for eczema

Homeopathy treatment for eczema helps to control itching, prevents the spread of eczema and treats the existing affected areas successfully without any side-effects.

Importantly, if you are suffering from a condition known as neurodermatitis (eczema caused due to stress), homeopathic medicines will help to improve your ability to cope with stress. This is the uniqueness of homeopathy. It does not merely take care of your symptoms but also treats the root cause of your illness. This root cause can be either physical like an underlying illness or an allergy or it can also be emotional like stress and depression. Homeopathy takes care of both. Homeopathy also helps you strengthen your immunity and ability to fight medical disorders.
