Treat Eczema without any side effects
Eczema is a skin disease in which the skin to becomes red, itchy and inflamed. Eczema is not contagious. You can’t “catch it” from someone else. While the exact cause of eczema is unknown, researchers do know that people who develop eczema do so because of a combination of genes and environmental triggers. When an irritant or an allergen “switches on” the immune system, skin cells don’t behave as they should be causing an eczema flare-up.
What to look for:
- Dry, sensitive skin
- Red, inflamed skin
- Very bad itching
- Dark colored patches of skin
- Rough, leathery or scaly patches of skin
- Oozing or crusting
- Areas of swelling
You might have all of these symptoms of eczema or only just a few. You might have some flare ups or your symptoms could go away entirely. But the only way to know if you have eczema for sure is to visit your doctor so he or she can look at your skin and ask you about your symptoms and diagnosing the type of eczema.
The most important thing to remember is that eczema and its symptoms are different for everyone. Your eczema may not look the same on you as it does on another adult, or on your child. It may even appear in different areas of the body at different times. Eczema is usually itchy. For many people, the itch is usually only mild, or moderate. But in some cases it can become much worse and you might develop extremely inflamed skin. Sometimes the itch gets so bad that people scratch it until it bleeds, which can make your eczema worse. This is called the “itch-scratch cycle.”
Homoeopathy for Eczema
Conventional modes of treatments are based on immunosuppressant. They may clear the skin in a few days to few weeks but it would recur as soon as the effect of the medicine wears off.
Topical treatments like creams/ ointments reduce the itching and inflammation temporarily but it would return with more intensity.
Homoeopathy helps to stimulate body's natural healing capacity and restores the deviated immunity back to normalcy.
Artificial Ultra-violet light therapies are known to cause burns but Homoeopathy has no such side-effects.
Homoeopathy is non-addictive and can also eliminate the need to consume conventional medicine.
If Homoeopathy is considered as treatment option in the early stage of the disease, then the overall control of the disease in future is much better.
Homoeopathic medicine helps to deal with stress more effectively and helps control the intensity of complaints during seasonal variations.
Homoeopathy uses natural medicines in potentised form which is extremely effective and absolutely free from any side effects.
In any skin affection there is often an underlying psychosomatic factor. Homoeopathy can help treat this factor very effectively without causing dependence or addiction.
Self Care Tips
Take lukewarm baths. Hot baths would wash away the natural body oils making the skin dry. Moisturize your skin every day. Apply moisturizer within 3 minutes of bathing to "lock in" moisture.
Wear cotton and soft fabrics, avoiding rough, scratchy fibers, and tight-fitting clothing. Use a mild soap or a non-soap cleanser when washing. Air dry or gently dab the skin dry with a towel, rather than rubbing skin dry after bathing.
Avoiding rapid changes of temperature and activities that make you sweat (where possible). Learning individual eczema triggers and avoiding them.
Use a humidifier in dry or cold weather.
Keep fingernails short to prevent scratching from breaking the skin.
