Finally! A Solution To Treating Eczema That Works

Aug 17, 2007
For those of you who do have this skin condition, you know all too well the physical, emotional and mental problems that it creates. For those of you who do not suffer from this condition and I do mean suffer, be glad that you do not have it and protect yourself from receiving it. What am I talking about? I am talking about Eczema.

Eczema is an irritating skin condition which is a form of dermatitis that affects millions of people in the United States. The features of Eczema are clearly seen for those who do have it. The most common feature of Eczema is inflammation of the skin in the form of red or yellow patches. With the features that eczema creates, it provides no benefits; only irritations.

The physical irritations associated with eczema are constant dryness of skin which leaves you always itching the area of the body where Eczema lies. Next, your skin suffers a burning sensation when the affected area comes in contact with certain things such as air, cleaning astringents and other particles.

Finally, Eczema leaves behind scars that are visible for years. The emotional and mental damage created from having the skin condition include shame at yourself for having the condition and embarrassment from others who look at your body and find you less attractive; this in turn leads to low self-esteem. For those of you who did feel this way because you have this horrible condition and even those who do not have it, read below to see what relief there is for you and also how to protect yourself from Eczema.

What Triggers Eczema?

1)Dust mites: Did you know that dust mite excrement contains allergens that can trigger asthma, eczema, and allergic nasal mucous membrane inflammations. Also, a dust mite produces 20 waste particles per day, about 200 times its body weight.

2)Chemical irritants: Chemical irritants can include detergents, allergens such as nickel, and yeast growths.

3)Weather conditions: Weather conditions can cause the skin to become irritated and therefore trigger eczema. Most commonly hot and humid conditions or cold, dry weather conditions.

4)Stress. It is well known that stress can trigger an outbreak of eczema since stress lowers the performance of the human immune system and therefore lowers the skins healing levels.

What relief is there for you?
There are many prescription topical creams used to treat the growth and spread of Eczema. Eczema creams (also known as anti-inflammatory creams) contain topical steroids, called corticosteroids, which work by reducing and preventing inflammation in the skin. Some anti-inflammatory creams are available over the counter, but most usually require a prescription. Oral antihistamines work by combating the bodies natural output of a substance called histamine, which causes inflammation in the skin. Histamines can cause rashes and allergic reactions, so using antihistamines can be a good choice for some. Some oral antihistamines are available over the counter, whereas some require a prescription and a medical consult. The problem with the prescription medicines is that they get quite expensive. Cheaper and better lines of defense against Eczema include moisturizers that help to re-moisturize the dry skin. Products that use Shea butter as an ingredient provide the moisturizing agent needed to treat eczema.
