Skin Conditions - Eczema

Skin Conditions Eczema

Doctors do not know the exact cause of eczema, but a defect of the skin that impairs its function as a barrier, possibly combined with an abnormal function of the immune system, are believed to be important factors. Studies have shown that in people with atopic dermatitis there are gene defects that lead to abnormalities in certain proteins (such as filaggrin) that are important in maintaining the barrier of normal skin.

Some forms of eczema can be triggered by substances that come in contact with the skin, such as soaps, cosmetics, clothing, detergents, jewelry, or sweat. Environmental allergens (substances that cause allergic reactions) may also cause outbreaks of eczema. Changes in temperature or humidity, or even psychological stress, can lead to outbreaks of eczema in some people.

However, there are also many other eczema symptoms that are not obviously related to the skin. Symptoms such as thirst caused by loss of fluid from the skins tissues, over sensitivity to cold and heat, and the prevalence of other allergic conditions such as asthma and hay fever, are all types of eczema symptoms that many people experience.

The skin of eczema patients is dry, thickened, and itchy, lesions may occur, sometimes worsened by scratching, with papules, red patches, weeping fluid and some time is bleeding. Eczema people often develop asthma. Allergy and eczema prone children and adults often are severely deficient in Omega-3 Fatty Acids and have digestive problems. A food allergy connection to eczema is clear, especially in infants and young children.

Causes

Eczema in Children

There is often marked intestinal inflammation and food allergy. Beginning solid foods too early before age 4 months may causes more then double the incidence of eczema, and this can be explained by the passage of new foods into the immatureintestinal tract.

GALT (Gout Associated Lymphoid Tissue), causing immune reactions.

The severity of inflammation caused by food allergy is often underestimated. Among the problems associated with milk allergy, sweets, sugar, junk foods – cause allergic chock in infants, skin and respiratory air way inflammation, acute and chronic gastroenteritis, and atrophy of the intestinal villi.

In infants many experts promote breastfeeding as a primary mechanism of preventing atopic dermatitis, but in breastfeed babies who have the condition, cessation of breastfeeding; and in our clinic I have seen various children's ailments cleared up by directly treating the breastfeeding mothers from the bad habit sugar craving and junk foods; when the mothers are in good health, breastfeeding will be healthy for their babies, if the mother full of toxins, she will pass every toxin to her baby and as a result your child will cry all day, due to skin conditions, colic, constipation etc.

For kids that have reached puberty suffer from rashes and eczema because they are often stressed; especially so with girls suffering from eczema.

For adults it is usually stress related due to work pressures or related to family issues. Work such as construction or high toxin jobs, poor liver function, poor immunity defense and adrenal exhaustion.

Managing the Symptoms of Eczema.

While there is no cure for eczema, you can take steps to manage your symptoms and lessen the severity of outbreaks.

In our clinic we start with the treatment of food allergies and digestive abnormalities. Lowered levels of stomach acid must be treated. While many patients will benefit from the use of healthy foods, a subset of patients especially children or people whose problems started in childhood will benefit from:

  • Avoid bathing without bath oils
  • Applying moisturizer frequently, especially after bathing
  • Bathing in warm, not hot, water and using a mild soap
  • Limiting or avoiding contact with known irritants like soaps, perfumes, detergents, jewelry, environmental irritants, etc.
  • Wearing loose-fitting clothing (cotton clothing may be less irritating for many people than wool or synthetic fibers)
  • The use of cool compresses to help control itching
  • Avoiding foods that cause allergic reactions
  • Exercise, meditation, or other stress-management techniques can help those for whom stress is a trigger
  • Wearing protective gloves for activities that require frequent submersion of the hands in water
  • Avoiding activities that make you hot and sweaty as well as abrupt changes in temperature and humidity
  • A humidifier should be used in both winter (when the heating dries the atmosphere) and in the summer (if air conditioning is used because it depletes the moisture in the air)
  • Maintaining cool temperatures in sleeping areas, because heat can lead to sweating that worsens itching and irritation
  • Practicing good skin hygiene even when you are not having symptoms
