Excema and a Detox Diet - Are They Related

May 16, 2008
As the cause of eczema is still not fully understood it makes dealing with the condition a problem as some believe that genetic factors are involved; perhaps in time a definitive answer will become available. This skin condition is easy to recognize with areas of dry, red skin that are very itchy. This dryness can lead to what appears to be a 'crusty' surface that may exhibit blistering.

Although there are a number of different types, the most common is atopic eczema; like all the other types, this one is characterized by itching as well. The main problem with the itching, especially with atopic eczema is that scratching brings relief but at a cost of intensifying the condition. A side effect to this condition is how hypersensitive it makes the skin; sufferers usually have reactions to washing detergents, soaps and even makeup.

The situation in small children doesn't look as severe at first as the patchy red skin is not on the skins surface but below it. The one consistent factor with eczema is the itchy skin; if this 'itchiness' is not present in a person who suffers with the condition then it is unlikely to be a symptom of it. However, if the itching has been somehow improved by eczema treatment but the rash has not, then the rash may not be related to the itch.

Because itching is a symptom in many problems related to the skin, including this skin disorder, this is not the basis of diagnosing the condition. Eczema itching and rashes go hand in hand but medical science still can't full explain why the skin itches the way it does. One of the more noticeable symptoms of is the red skin in the location of the rash which is caused by increased blood flow.

With eczema, the skin can become inflamed for many reasons because it is already highly sensitive; one area that causes concern is where there is a bacterial infection which can easily be the result of scratching sensitive skin. Sufferers also exhibit blisters quite frequently which are normally quite small although bigger blisters are sometimes visible; an infection or just a genetic trait of the sufferer could be the reasons for this.

Every sufferer is warned about blisters as they can be damaged by scratching or carelessness and whilst some are filled with fluid, others have a pus like substance; sufferers are advised never to burst them and create further infection in an already highly sensitive area.
