Eczema / Atopic Dermatitis - How to Overcome from Atopic Dermatitis / Eczema














Eczema Homeopathy Medicines Treatment 
Eczema is a term for several different types of skin swelling. Eczema is also called dermatitis. It is not dangerous, but most types cause red, swollen and itchy skin. Factors that can cause eczema include other diseases, irritating substances, allergies and your genetic makeup. Eczema is not contagious.

The most common type of eczema is Atopic dermatitis. It is an allergic condition that makes your skin dry and itchy. It is most common in babies and children.

Atopic Dermatitis
Atopic Dermatitis is a disease that causes itchy, inflamed skin. It typically affects the insides of the elbows, backs of the knees, and the face, but can cover most of the body. Atopic Dermatitis falls into a category of diseases called Atopic, a term originally used to describe the allergic conditions asthma and hay fever. Atopic Dermatitis was included in the Atopic category because it often affects people who either suffer from asthma and/or hay fever or have family members who do.  Physicians often refer to these three conditions as the "Atopic triad.

Atopic Dermatitis almost always begins in childhood, usually during infancy. Its symptoms are dry, itchy, scaly skin, cracks behind the ears, and rashes on the cheeks, arms, and legs. It alternately improves and worsens. During "flare-ups," open weeping or crusted sores may develop from the scratching or from infections.

Cause
Based on the aetiology, eczemas are divided into two basic groups:
1. Exogenous - This can occur due to contact with some irritant or allergen
2. Endogenous - This group contains all other types of which cause and mechanism is poorly understood. Many factors like heredity, hypersensitivity, fungal infection, senile changes, venous stasis etc are implicated in various forms of endogenous eczema.

Often the problem fades during childhood, though people with Atopic Dermatitis have a lifelong tendency to have:
  • Dry skin—easily irritated
  • Occupational skin disease—hand dermatitis
  • Skin infections—Staph and herpes ("cold sores")
  • Eye problems—eyelid dermatitis, cataracts
  • Family and social relationships disrupted
  • Work loss

Signs and symptoms
Although eczema may look different from person to person, it is most often characterized by
·         Dry,
·         Red,
·         Extremely itchy patches on the skin.
·         Eczema is sometimes referred to as "the itch that rashes," since the itch, when scratched, results in the appearance of the rash.
·         Eczema can occur on just about any part of the body; however, in infants, eczema typically occurs on the forehead, cheeks, forearms, legs, scalp, and neck.
·         In children and adults, eczema typically occurs on the face, neck, and the insides of the elbows, knees, and ankles.
·         In some people, eczema may "bubble up" and ooze. In others, the condition may appear more scaly, dry, and red.
·         Chronic scratching causes the skin to take on a leathery texture because the skin thickens (lichenification).

Reason for itch
Many substances have been identified as itch "triggers" in patients with eczema, and triggers are not the same for every person. Many times it is difficult to identify the exact trigger that causes a flare-up. For some, it seems that rough or coarse materials coming into contact with the skin causes itchiness. For others, feeling too hot and/or sweating will cause an outbreak. Other people find that certain soaps, detergents, disinfectants, contact with juices from fresh fruits and meats, dust mites, and animal saliva and dander’s may trigger itching. Upper respiratory infections (caused by viruses) may also be triggers. Stress can also sometimes aggravate an existing flare-up.

Diagnosis
Usually eczemas are diagnosed clinically. Patch test and prick test may be required for allergens.

Differential diagnosis
·         Simple pruritis(itching)
·         Fungal, bacterial, and other infections
·         Exfoliative dermatitis

CONVENTIONAL TREATMENT
Topical application of steroids and oral anti-allergic drugs form the main stay of treatment.

 

HOMEOPATHIC TREATMENT FOR ECZEMA, ALLERGIC DERMATITIS

Homeopathy offers very good treatment for eczema, but the approach used by homeopaths is very different from that of conventional treatment. Homeopaths usually do not give anything to apply topically. Instead they try to remove the basic disposition/sensitivity to develop such a lesion using internal medicine. This approach not only successfully removes the eczema but also removes the possibility of development of other hypersensitivity disorders like asthma after the eczema is cured. To find the proper remedy a homeopath collects all the past medical history of the person, his/her family history, his/her physical and psychological characteristics etc. All this information helps the homeopath to find a remedy which not only will remove the eczema but will also remove the disposition to acquire such diseases. As a note of caution I would like to add here that after a proper remedy is given the eczema may occasionally (not often) show a mild flare up. This should not worry the patient as it is often considered a good prognostic sign by homeopaths.

But which medicine will work in a particular case can only be judged by a trained homeopath.

In homoeopathic method of treatment we have good effective medicines for these complaint, Homoeopathic medicines works well without any side effects. Long course of treatment is helpful to reduce these problems
