Eczema is “a general term for any superficial inflammatory process involving the epidermis primarily, marked early by redness, itching, minute papules and vesicles, weeping, oozing and crusting, and later by scaling, lichenification and often pigmentation.
An accurate diagnosis requires an examination of the entire skin surface and a careful history. It is important to rule out curable conditions caused by infectious organisms. Occasionally, a sample of skin (biopsy) may be sent for examination in a laboratory.
What Triggers Eczema?
These methods can help you decrease your inflammation along with gradually treat your eczema:
1. Exclude Processed Foods From Your Diet And Include Nutrient-Rich Foods
Your best bet is to choose a well-balanced eating plan. Despite the uncertain links between food and eczema, there’s no doubt that enjoying plenty of fruits, vegetables, low-fat dairy, and whole grains is good for your overall health.
2. Take More Pro-biotic
Probiotics are thought to help restore the natural balance of bacteria in your gut (including your stomach and intestines) when it has been disrupted by an illness or treatment.
Probiotics may be helpful in some cases, but there’s little evidence to support many health claims made for them. For example, there’s no evidence to suggest that probiotics can help treat eczema.
However, it does seem that for most people probiotics appear to be safe. If you wish to try them – and you have a healthy immune system – they shouldn’t cause any unpleasant side effects.
3. Take The Proper Supplements
Magnesium as well as vitamins A, C and E are also beneficial for preventing inflammation, allergies and improving skin health. When it comes to vitamins and minerals – just make sure to get them all. Fish Oil – Omega 3 Essential Fatty Acid and GLA – Omega 6 Essential Fatty Acid can help you treat the condition.
4. Topical Application
Moisturisers (emollients) prevent the skin from becoming dry. You can apply emollients as often as you need. This may be 2-3 times a day or more if your skin becomes very dry. Applying emollients regularly is hard work and tedious but worthwhile as it can prevent eczema from flaring up.
Apple Cider Vinegar Remedy
This vinegar has been long used due to its anti-fungal and anti-bacterial properties, and it is one of the most effective traditional eczema remedies.
