Eczema
Herbal & Home Remedies Herbal Remedies Home Remedies

Oregon Grape RootEczema is a general term for many types of skin inflammation, also known as dermatitis. The most common form of eczema is atopic dermatitis. However, there are many different forms of eczema.

Eczema can affect people of any age, although the condition is most common in infants. Eczema will permanently resolve by age 3 in about half of affected infants. In others, the condition tends to recur throughout life. People with eczema often have a family history of the condition or a family history of other allergic conditions, such as asthma or hay fever. Eczema affects children more than adults.

Symptoms

The main symptoms of eczema is skin that is dry, red and inflamed. The area of skin that is affected is often very itchy and in some cases small blisters may form, which can weep and become crusted.

Eczema is usually found on the face, hands, the insides of the elbows and the backs of the knees, but it can cover most of the body.

Causes

 

Normal skin pretty much takes care of itself, never really causing us too much trouble. It's the largest organ of your body, flexible, relatively waterproof, keeps you warm or cool by regulating body temperature, and protects you from tiny organisms and infections.

Skin affected by eczema is often dry and cracked, the protective outer layer of skin damaged. As a result, skin affected by eczema loses a lot of water, which interferes with the natural healing process.

Home Remedies

There are no known cures for the eczema, but there are several home remedies to help reduce flare ups.

One treatment includes using a paste made from 1 tsp of camphor oil and 1 tsp of sandalwood oil and applying the paste to the affected areas. Camphor oil and sandalwood oil can be found in most health food stores. Or for severe itching, consider applying a mask made of mashed papaya seeds

Prevention is better than cure this phrase has a significant place in eczema natural treatment. This is the most essential step that incorporates in treating eczema quite profoundly. This includes lifestyle change, healthy diet, body cleansing, exercise, and natural therapies.

Food is important to keep us moving and healthy. But some foods may trigger the problem of eczema. Most of these foods are well-known to us such as cows milk, egg, wheat, soy, corn, and food additives and preservatives. If certain foods play significant role in triggering eczema in your case, you may experience eczema reaction within 2 to 24 hours after having the food.

You may be intolerant or oversensitive to some foods; however that doesnt mean that you are allergic to them as well. While selecting your diet, you should consider the tolerance level, especially if you are suffering from eczema.

Body cleansing is very important to maintain healthy body and mind. It is also an integral part of eczema natural treatment. Our internal organs consist of a lot of toxic substances. Internal toxic substances may also cause different types of illnesses including skin rashes and eczema. So body cleansing is essential for both adults and children.

You should practice four types of body cleansing methods - bowel cleansing, dental cleansing, kidney cleansing and liver cleansing.

Exercise helps maintaining homeostasis at psycho-physiological level. It also helps in relieving stress. Walking, meditation, jogging, stretching, gymnastics, dancing, swimming and weight lifting are the few of the effective exercises that you can do to maintain a healthy mind-body balance.  

The more moisture there is in your skin, the less it can split and crack and itch and flake. In an eczema sufferer, the further you can get from these things the better.

As a general rule, the more you can moisturize the better, but as a minimum twice a day should give you some real gains.

It's best to moisturize immediately after bathing, dab yourself dry with a soft towel and apply the moisturizer directly to damp skin. This will help you lock the moisturizer into the skin, and give you even greater benefits.

Eczema is really no picnic-any sufferer will tell you-but hopefully if you put some of these tips into practice, you may be able to feel some relief.
