Eczema is a condition that causes the skin to become itchy, red, dry and cracked. In most people it is a long-term (chronic) condition, although it can improve over time. It is usually more common in children, but can develop in later years, and though the exact causes are unknown, it is rarely down to one single thing.
Atopic eczema, is the most common form of eczema. Atopic means a sensitivity to Allergens, and can run in families – often there are cases of asthma or hay fever in the family.
Atopic eczema can affect any part of the body. This includes sensitive spots, such as around the mouth, nose, eyes, or hands, the scalp, but more commonly, the backs of the knees and creases of the elbows.
Certain foods or substances can also trigger the symptoms of Atopic eczema. Dairy products for example, and products containing harsh chemicals such as SLS (sodium laurel sulphates) a chemical foaming agent found in soaps/shampoos.
How do we treat Atopic eczema?
There is currently no cure for atopic eczema, but natural eczema treatment can help relieve the symptoms and thankfully most children do grow out of it. The answer is to keep it under control by reducing the itch, redness and sheer discomfort. This helps maintain self-esteem and reduces the impact on other members of the family.
There are many different treatments, both conventional and complementary, which can be used to control symptoms and manage eczema. An alternative to steroid creams and emollients are natural, chemical-free moisturisers, washes and oils, containing therapeutic ingredients used in the right quantities to create the desired effect.
