Eczema the common itchy skin ilness ravaging the nation

My father was constantly scratching parts of his body and I noticed rough, bumpy patches especially on his arms and behind his legs.  Those areas were always red and irritated looking.  He told me he had always had those patches off and on since he was a child.  I began to research what these patches were and found that he had atopic dermatitis eczema.  The symptoms of this condition include a crust of skin forming that consists of skin, secretions and puss.  This crust is dry and often cracks which leads to even more irritation.  This becomes itchy and if scratched leads to more and more irritation.

His Type Is Most Common On The Scalp

Certain things may trigger this effect that could include, allergens, stress, makeup, clothing, and temperature.  Some of the allergens include, dandruff, pets, molds, dust mites, certain foods or pollen.  While there is no clear medical link from food to eczema, many of the sufferers site dairy, gluten, nuts or fish to lead to flare-ups.  Others complain after consuming sugar, caffeine, alcohol, processed foods or high trans fat foods.  Many discount the harmful nature of stress, but the fight or flight sensation causes a raise in the hormones cortisol and adrenaline.  The hormone cortisol can suppress the immune system which can lead to an inflammatory response on the skin.  Some of the clothing that have been noted as being a possible irritant are synthetic woolen fabrics.   Extreme temperature can lead to irritation also.

There are many treatments for this condition.  Some of these include natural creams using essential oils, doctor prescribed creams, diet changes, stress reduction and medicine to name a few.  Some common ingredients found in natural creams include shea butter, lavender essential oil, and chamomile essential oil.  Some of those creams include Emily Skin Soothers are specifically formulated for ezcema.  Other creams to treat ezcema can either be purchased over the counter or prescribed by dermatologists.  Often treatments made with hydrocortisone steroids can quickly relieve itching and reduce inflammation.  Wet dressings can be done by a doctor.   This is where corticosteroid cream is spread on the affected area which is then covered with a wet bandage. The wet bandages are then covered with dry bandages. Diet changes that have been noted as have having some success include anti-inflammatory or probiotic-rich foods like fish, kefir or yogurt. 

Medication can be prescribed if the creams mentioned above provide no relief.  These medications work on the immune system and here is a list of some of them.   Azathioprine, cyclosporine, methotrexate, mycophenolate mofetil, and oral steriods like prednisolone or prednisone.  While these medications can be effective at helping to combat ezcema, they also can have many side effects.  These side effects include nausea, high blood pressure, kidney and liver damage.  Doctors usually prescribe these for a short term due to the possible severity of these side effects.

So while ezcema can be bothersome there are many ways to bring relief to the sufferer.  Stress reduction, diet changes, creams and medications all aid in the fight against this condition.  To get started those should first consult their doctor or a dermatologist.

    My Eczema skin condition is very annoying. It is always flaking and drying out. I have tried many diffrent medications and I am constantly frustrated by how little effect they have. Recently though I have started taking Zyrtec and moisturizing and it seems to be making a considerable difference in my health. I have been able to rest a lot easier without my skin flaking all the time and I am also feeling much more confident when out on the town.

    I love taking a lot of allergy medicine because it helps me with my serious itching. I am able to finally control having all these bumps and rashes and having them go away has helped a tremendous amount with my confidence. I truly owe it all to Zyrtec because without it I wouldn’t have gotten my nice and sexy body back

    When I was younger (pre-teen), doctors diagnosed me with Eczema. It manifested as annoyingly itchy splotches on my arms as well as my shoulders. It was painful and treatment helped but didn’t fully abate it until about a year later. It was difficult and made me self conscious about my skin for years.

    My Eczema gets worst in winter. I try to use my creams to hydrated well for my skin. It is helpful but not in winters. I have to use steroids in winter. I try to use natural remedies as well. But only the steroids works in winter. I always feels better in summer and summer and spring. I hate to take care of my skin all the time. When I see my friends without eczema and clear skin, I feel like I wanted to have clear skin. I am waiting for that. Hopefully in future. I just want to enjoy my skin with less care. I don’t know why I got this eczema. It is really really annoying me. sometimes it is very itchy and sometime I get blood if I scratch. I am really hoping for my clear skin. I tries so many soaps also but nothing had worked out except eczema.

    Everybody gets itchy skin once in a while. But when you have long-lasting, red, itchy rashes, it could be atopic dermatitis. Atopic dermatitis usually develops in early childhood and is more common in people who have a family history of the condition.The main symptom is a rash that typically appears on the arms and behind the knees, but can also appear anywhere. Atopic dermatitis in adults is often a serious condition. It involves chronic, red, thick, lichenified plaques, sometimes with isolated pruritic papules. In addition to this chronic eczema, patients experience acute, vesicular or oozing flare-ups.Atopic dermatitis is chronic, meaning it does not usually go away in a few days or weeks. It might get better or worse but the symptoms typically return. Atopic dermatitis is very itchy. Your or your child’s skin can become damaged from repeated scratching or rubbing.
