Eczema

Eczema is "a general term for any superficial inflammatory process involving the epidermis primarily, marked early by redness, itching, minute papules and vesicles, weeping, oozing and crusting, and later by scaling, lichenification and often pigmentation." It is also used specifically to refer to the condition atopic dermatitis.

There are many different types of eczema. This article will predominantly focus on atopic dermatitis. Other variants include:
  • Allergic contact eczema (dermatitis) - a reaction where the skin has come into contact with a substance that the immune system recognizes as foreign
  • Contact eczema - a localized reaction where the skin has come into contact with an allergen
  • Dyshidriotic eczema - irritation of skin on palms of hands and soles of feet, characterized by blisters
  • Neurodermatitis - scaly patches of skin on head, forearms, wrists, lower legs caused by localized itch such as an insect bite
  • Nummular eczema - circular patches of irritated skin that can be crusted, scaling and itchy
  • Seborrheic eczema - oily, scaly yellowish patches of skin, usually on scalp and face
  • Stasis dermatitis - skin irritation on lower legs, usually related to circulatory problems.

Causes of Eczema

  • Irritants: soaps, detergents, shampoos, disinfectants, juices from fresh fruits, meats or vegetables
  • Allergens: dust mites, pets, pollens, mold, dandruff
  • Hot and cold temperatures: hot weather, high and low humidity, perspiration from exercise
  • Foods: dairy products, eggs, nuts and seeds, soy products, wheat
  • Stress: it is not a cause of eczema but can make symptoms worse
  • Hormones: women can experience worsening of eczema symptoms at times when their hormone levels are changing, for example during pregnancy and at certain points in their menstrual cycle.

Treatment for Eczema

  • Allergy is ultimately an inflammatory condition and diet can profoundly influence inflammation throughout the body. Follow an anti-inflammatory diet and avoid pro-inflammatory ingredients.
  • Skin disorders are often strongly linked to psychological stress; conversely, stress-relieving techniques can often be extraordinarily effective in providing relief. Try visualization or hypnotherapy to take advantage of the mind/body connection in allergic skin disorders.
  • Try aloe-vera gel, calendula lotion or cream, and chaparral lotion on irritated skin.
  • Take gamma-linolenic acid (GLA). This unusual fatty acid is found in evening primrose oil, black currant oil and borage oil but is very hard to come by in the diet. GLA appears to have nourishing effects on skin, hair, and nails. Take 500 mg twice a day and expect to wait six to eight weeks to see results.
  • Eliminate milk and all milk products, which may irritate the immune system
  • B vitamins. B3 (niacin) and B6 (pyridoxine) are both integral to the process of new cell formation, and play a key role in the healthy function of body tissue - especially skin, which has a quick rate of turnover.
  • Omega-3 fatty acids. These essential fatty acids have recognized anti-inflammatory properties.
  • Zinc. A deficiency in this essential mineral is common among people with allergies, and may play a role in the development of recurring or chronic eczema
  • Antioxidants (vitamins A, C, E and selenium). Ensuring that your diet is rich with these well-known free-radical scavengers can help support the body’s defenses against the daily chemical onslaught. Vitamin C strengthens the skin; vitamin E improves skin healing; and vitamin A helps to regulate the rapid turnover of skin cells seen in eczema
