Eczema includes medical conditions in which the skin is inflamed and irritated.|
The skin disorders cause symptoms like inflammation, dryness, redness, and scaling.
Eczema is more common in babies and small children, and only 2-4% of all adults develop eczema at some point in their life. The outer layer of the skin becomes inflamed and damaged, which creates perfect conditions for irritation and sensitivity.
Health experts have recognized acute and chronic symptoms:
- Inflamed skin
- Peeling, flaking skin
- Cuts and cracks caused by dryness
- Changes in skin color and texture
- Burning caused by irritation
Eczema is usually treated with creams and ointments, but the problem lies deep in the system. The treatment of eczema should start from the core of the problem. Treating the symptoms won’t do the trick, as they will soon come back, and you’ll have to start all over again.
We give you some of the most common root causes of eczema:
- Low sebum production
- Weak immune system
Tips on how to treat eczema
- Scratching can additionally worsen your problem, so try not to do it. Don’t peel dried skin either, as this may cause open sores and bacterial infections.
- Carefully pick your food. The same applies to skin care products and cleaning products, because some of the ingredients may cause allergies.
- Eat more foods packed with anti-inflammatory foods to strengthen your immune system.
- Use homemade eczema creams based on natural ingredients.
