Eczema - Overview



What is Eczema?

Eczema (also called dermatitis) describes any inflammation of the skin which is characterized by itching, redness and an outbreak of lesions. It is non-contagious in nature i.e. does not spread from one person to another.
 

Cervical Spondylitis (also called Cervical Spondylosis) is derived from Greek words that mean neck (cervical) and vertebra (spondylo). Thus it’s a condition caused by wear and tear that occurs at the backbone (vertebral column) in the neck region.

 

Causes of Eczema.

An abnormal function of the immune system (allergy/ allergic response) is seen in most cases where the body reacts abnormally to external impressions which otherwise don’t have an impact on healthy individuals. Some of the triggers for eczema include but are not limited to:

  • > Environmental allergens: House dust, sand, smoke, animal dander, pollen, molds, etc.
  •  
  • > Dietary allergens: Milk & milk products, soy, fish, eggs, peanuts, etc.
  •  
     
  • > Contact with irritant substances such as soaps, detergents, cleaning products, cosmetics, perfumes, etc. Even contact with certain forms of clothing, rubber, watches, jewelry, some metals such as nickel, etc, can trigger it off.
  •  
     
  • > Changes in temperature and humidity
  •  
     
  • > Dry climate and excessively cold temperature
  •  
     
  • > Psychological stress - This has been advocated as a cause in a large number of cases. How stress triggers off the altered immune response is not clearly understood.
  •  
     
  • > CImpaired blood circulation especially in the legs - leads to stasis dermatitis
  •  
     
  • > Unknown factors trigger certain forms of dermatitis such as seborrheic dermatitis, atopic dermatitis, etc.
  •  
     
  • > Genetic factor: This has been strongly implicated as a cause for developing eczema. Often, patients with eczema are seen to be having some form of family history of allergies, asthma, hay fever or other forms of allergic diseases.

    Homeopathic Treatment

    Controlling the damage and easing the pain

     

    At our clinic, with our experience of successfully treating thousands of cases of eczema over the last previous years, we are in possession of the experience and expertise to handle the cases with utmost care. The reason why our medication scores over conventional medication is that it corrects the deviated immune process, which is the root cause of eczema or the skin allergy. The medication works to restore this deviated immunity to give rise to a series of repeated and increasingly prolonged remissions in the symptoms, which eventually proceeds to a good control of the disease.


    At the same time, side-effects (as those seen with steroids) like thinning of the skin, atrophy of skin, secondary fungal and bacterial infections of the skin are completely avoided here.


    It must be kept in mind that treatment duration varies from case to case and depends on many factors such as duration of the eczema, its extent and severity, and the previous treatment taken. However, the treatment has multiple benefits to offer to every patient of eczema and hence is strongly suggested for all cases.
