Eczema Treatment for Infants and Young Children – Chess Peal …

Eczema (also known as dermatitis) is any inflammation of your skin which is characterized by dryness, redness, itching, and the outbreak of lesions. It is does not spread from one person to another. It can affect people of any age, and it is a most common condition in infants and young children. There are seven different types of eczema.

1. Atopic dermatitis
2. Contact eczema
3. Seborrheic eczema
4. Nummular eczema
5. Neurodermatitis
6. Stasis dermatitis
7. Dyshidrotic eczema

Symptoms of eczema

It can affect on nearly any body part, however, broadly speaking it is more usual on the hands, face, knees, scalp, ankles and inside the elbows. Eczema normally comes out as awfully scratchy patches over the skin. It can worsen when itched; as a matter of fact, itchy skin may seem to be normal till scratched and the painful action may then leads to the rash as well as scales to emerge. Leathery skin, blisters that seep and crust over, redness and soreness in the infected area are the some other symptoms of eczema.

Causes of eczema

Eczema can be caused by environmental and genetic factors. In some cases dietary allergens, like dairy products, wheat, and sensitivities of particular contents for instance few cosmetic products, detergents, soaps, dust mites, pollen and pet fur can all make eczema worse. In many people it can be cause of allergy for instance asthma. It can be aggravated by water exposure, change in temperature, anxiety and dry climates. Changes in hormones levels can be another factor of eczema.

Eczema Treatment

Proper skin care is a key element in ascertaining eczema. For couples of individuals mild eczema can be well-managed by modifying their skin care routine and creating a handful of lifestyle changes. But for other individuals with more grievous eczema may require to take medicinal drugs in order to control their symptoms.

Some non-medicinal treatments for eczema are:

Soft soap: Try to apply a gentle soap that will not dry the skin. These soaps also known as syndets and these are accessible at the medical store (brand names can be recommended by your doctor or pharmacist).

Apply good moisturizer: Use a high-quality moisturizer (in any form like cream, ointment or lotion), it will help to protect the natural moisture of skin and must be applied instantly soon after a bath, as well as on an alternative basis.

Avoid long showers: Avoid taking extremely hot or prolong baths, which can make your skin dry.

Regular exercise and reduce stress: Always do regular exercises and follow steps to abridge stress.

Food for eczema: Egg, milk, wheat and peanuts should be eliminated from your diet for a period of four weeks and after this period you can slowly reintroduce them. Take zinc included food such as leafy vegetables, pumpkin and sesame seeds, lentils, tofu, almonds and whole grains.

SOMEONE Manages Eczema Herpeticum | Eczema Blues

Jenny with severe facial eczema

Jenny shares on her eczema herpeticum experience

This is a 2013 series focused on personal journey with eczema while managing a certain aspect of life. Today, we have Jenny who is sharing about her eczema herpeticum experience. Jenny blogs about her own personal experiences with eczema at i-have-eczema. She also has a lovely blog at Little Jenny Wren on her crafts, cakes and fashion.

Marcie Mom: Hi Jenny, thanks for sharing about your eczema herpeticum experience. Let’s start with you sharing a little of eczema history.

Jenny: Hi Mei! Thanks for having me! Eczema only became a problem for me in my mid-teen years when I became a lot more exposed to environmental allergens. Since this time it has become very widespread affecting every part of my body except my nose, fingers and feet. As a child I suffered more so from asthma and hay fever but as an adult I suffer with severe eczema. 

Marcie Mom: When did your eczema herpeticum occur and what happened before and during treatment? (an archived post on Eczema Herpeticum – What is it and is it dangerous?)

Jenny: Since April 2012 I’ve contracted Eczema Herpeticum 7 times. Eczema Herpeticum is when the herpes simplex virus presents itself in an eczema sufferer, but instead of getting a cold sore or two, the virus spreads rapidly through areas that are affected by eczema. This can be an extremely dangerous condition, especially if not treated swiftly, as it can go on to affect organs and even cause septicemia and other life-threatening conditions.

My most recent outbreak is the worst I’ve ever experienced. It started in my eyes as a mild itch that I put down to being possible conjunctivitis. However over the course of the day the typical warning signs of eczema herpeticum became apparent as the cold sore-like vesicles presented themselves. It became so bad that I couldn’t even open my eyes. I also went on to develop a secondary infection of Periorbital Cellulitis so required emergency medical help. I then went on to spend 6 days in hospital being treated through an IV drip. It was pretty frightening as when I’ve suffered with eczema herpeticum in the past a dosage of Aciclovir tablets have been able to sort me out… but not this time.

Jenny on Eczema Herpeticum

Marcie Mom: Is there any medication and follow-up consultation required?

Jenny: In my case because I’ve contracted this virus so often, I am on a near-permanent course of Aciclovir tablets in order to keep it at bay. Most people would only require enough medication to treat the initial outbreak as it is uncommon for it to prevail as it has for me. I also see a dermatologist at the very least of once a month to ensure my skin is in good control.

Marcie Mom: One final question – what would be your biggest take-away from this experience?

Jenny: In all honesty I’m not sure how to answer this question. I’m now at a stage where I’m terrified that it will happen again to the extremity that I ended up hospitalised. It has only been a week since I was discharged after all. I guess in order to overcome it I need to get my immune system into a workable order as it is when you are run down and stressed that the herpes simplex virus breaks out. As an aside note, I have been taking immunosuppressants to control my severe eczema for a few years now and so these will not be helping to treat my immune system. If possible I would suggest to take eczema through the natural route to try to stop your immune system from getting into this state as mine has.

I’ll also add that I was never affected with the herpes simplex virus until I met my current partner who periodically suffers from cold sores. I never in my wildest dreams expected it to manifest in me as it has. Cold sores are such a common contagious infection that can be spread through something simple such as sharing towels and touching things that the infected person has touched. They’re pretty hard to escape from so always practise good hand hygiene where possible.

Marcie Mom: Thank you so much for sharing your eczema herpeticum journey, quite a few children had it too and parents reading this would have gained some insight.

Skin Salveation Eczema Treatment Soap

The search for a soap to help those suffering from eczema has been a long one, with many researchers heading off down blind alleys. Looking at the specific needs of those with dry skin conditions, Dr Randle and Dr Drew of Skin Salveation decided that what was needed was something which would not be as harsh as most commercial soaps and which would leave the skin feeling cleansed as well as helping it to heal itself.


The breakthrough came when the team discovered a way of creating a treatment soap which would be gentle on the skin while also delivering sodium silicate, which has been proven to help damaged or over dry skin to heal. This is the active ingredient in many of the ‘home remedies’ most notably mares tails (Equisetum arvense) – many people have found relief from bathing in an infusion of crushed mares tails for generations.


Skin Salveation’s eczema treatment soap is designed to lock in the natural moisture of the skin, stopping it from drying out and keeping it supple and less prone to cracking and itching. Part of the secret of the soap’s success is that you don’t rinse it off after washing. What you do is clean your skin as you would ordinarily with fragrance free soap and water, and then work the eczema treatment soap into a rich lather – you will find this easy and quick to do because of the very moisturising ingredients. This lather should be worked into the skin and then left to dry, without rinsing or patting off with a towel. If this treatment is repeated as often as possible – three times daily is ideal – the skin will soon show a great improvement. If using Skin Salveation eczema treatment soap to cope with a flare up it is important to use no fragrances, harsh washing powders or anything which could interfere with its effectiveness. Browse the Skin Salveation website to find suitable products to use.

5 Natural Ways to Treat Eczema | Healthy Concepts with a Nutrition …

5 Natural Ways to Treat Eczema

Little Milo, my youngest, has had a mild case of eczema since he was a baby. Little did I know, before learning more about natural health, that this external skin condition actually stems from issues in your gut…

Eczema is skin inflammation. It’s technical name is atopic dermatitis, or atopic eczema. Thirty million Americans are suffering from this skin condition, and according to the an article from, about 20% of infants born in the US develop eczema and some outgrow it by the age of 10.

If you’ve learned one thing about inflammation and natural health, you know that inflammation is an indicator that something’s not right internally.

Why then do we see advertisements for ointments and lotions to treat eczema?

Naturopathic Doctor’s Chris D. Meletis, ND, and Jason Barker, ND give it to us straight,

“The concept of treating eczema with hydrocortisone or other suppressive therapies is inherently foreign to the holistically minded physician….Clearly, suppressive therapies for eczema only serve to prolong actual treatment of the symptoms.”

My son’s doctor prescribed some sort of steroid cream. There was no way I was going to put steroid cream on my infant. Especially because the doc warned me not to use too much, too often, or it could burn his skin right off. Really? No thank you, Doc! I’m thankful I never used that cream because I investigated side effects and health problems from even low doses of steroids and it’s not good!

The “best” advice I’ve seen yet from US scientists is diluted bleach baths – are they serious!? I cringe at the fact that this terrible advice is published on the internet for parents to see. Please don’t bathe your baby in bleach unless you want them to have thyroid issues!

That’s the thing with most conventional methods… they’ll try something to solve one problem but it only causes more problems. I have one word for that – D U M B.

The Cause of Eczema

Studies show that food allergens are the main cause of eczema.  The most common food culprits are cow’s milk, eggs, gluten (wheat, barley, rye & oats), soy, peanuts, fish, beef, corn, citrus and even tomatoes. Stress and genetics do play a role in atopic dermatitis, and studies show antibiotics and toxic ingredients like heavy metals used to make vaccinations are also a cause. Read my article on Is Vaccination Really Necessary to find out more about this.

Also, using caustic and toxic detergents or fabric softeners can aggravate and worsen eczema symptoms.

And it makes sense that eating fast food and other processed foods only make matters worse.

A recent finding published in the journal, Thorax, claims that “kids who eat fast food three or more times a week are likely to have more severe allergic asthma, hay fever and eczema.” There’s little to no nutritional value in these sorts of foods, in fact they even shut off the immune system.

Furthermore, newer studies prove eczema flare-ups are brought about or worsen from exposure to other environmental allergens like dust, animal dander and pollen. In fact, many kids that have eczema may also develop asthma and hay fever.

Either way, topical treatments will not solve the problem of atopic dermatitis. To get to the root of the issue, you must start within the gastrointestinal system and immune function, and let natural topical treatments help relieve symptoms.

Meletis and Barker stress the importance of  keeping the gastrointestinal tract healthy in their articleSkin Health, Eczema, and Preventative Strategies,

“If the eyes and the skin are the portal through which we may observe the body’s internal health, the gut then is the door through which a majority of disease initiates its entrance into the body.” The Dr’s explain. “It goes without saying that many factors in today’s lifestyle compromise the meticulous integrity of the gut lining, namely food choices and antibiotic therapies. The first area of treatment then for the patient displaying eczema should be the gastrointestinal lining, without a doubt.”

Scientific research continues to prove what nature has known all along…That the best approach for treating eczema naturally – is a healthy gut and immune system. Let’s break it down…

5 Ways to Treat Eczema Naturally

I think it’s funny when you read articles with studies proving one specific treatment was ineffective for treating eczema.  Duh! Just taking Evening Primrose Oil everyday might not fix the problem for everyone, I could have told you that – what a waste of a study. Folks, we need to take a combination of steps to achieve our desired health and well-being. We have to stop thinking that simple quick fixes can solve our problems. We need to face the fact that no matter how hard we try, we’re not going to be able to do it right 100% of the time. Especially not with high rollers like Big Pharma and Big Food on one team working against us. But, I personally promise you that if you do a combination of these 5 things, you’ll see the difference as your bodies healing process starts to take over.

1. Healthy Diet & Nutrition

A healthy diet & proper nutrition is usually the key when it comes to our well being. Some people may be able to eliminate eczema all together by simply giving their body the nutrients it needs while avoiding the things that lead to inflammation and sickness.

  • Eating Well:  Eat a raw food diet, with as much whole and organic foods as possible. Avoid processed foods, caffeine, dairy, gluten, meat, sugar and alcohol. It’s also smart to get food allergen testing done to know if there’s anything else you should avoid. Even some fruits or vegetables could be a culprit. Also, drink at least 64 ounces of water a day. Our bodies need it just like plants do. Here is a very helpful Natural Health & Nutrition Pyramid I created to give you a better idea of what to eat, keeping in mind that to clear eczema, avoid the top 3 sections. (Scroll to the bottom to view it.)
  • Use Coconut Oil: Eat and use cold pressed, organic, extra virgin coconut oil for cooking! Don’t use vegetable oil, canola oil, peanut oil, etc. These oils are created by a man-made process that manipulates the oil into a thickened saturated fat known as trans-fat. The only thing these oils benefit is their shelf life and the profits of large food companies. For the rest of us, the amount we ingest only leads us to being fat, sick and dead. Coconut oil, on the other hand, contains lauric acid, a rare type of fat found only in coconut oil and mother’s breast milk. Our bodies convert lauric acid into monolaurin, a compound that is highly toxic to viruses, bacteria, fungus and other microorganisms. It also deeply penetrates and moisturizes the skin while protecting it from environmental and free radical damage. Learn more from our article/infographic on health benefits of Coconut Oil: The Hero For Your Health.

2. Healthy Gut & Immune System 

A healthy diet and nutrition is a key part in having a healthy gut flora and boosting your immune system. But, there are also a few ways you can take it a step further. By following #1 & #2, you or your child may be free of eczema within a short period of time. It took my son three days for his symptoms to disappear. But each person is unique, with some having a mild case and others having a more severe case. So – healing time will vary for everyone.

  • Essential Fatty Acids: Whether you have any health issues or not, everyone should be getting essential fatty acids (EFA). At least 99% of our population is EFA deficient because our bodies don’t make them on our own, yet they are essential to human survival. We must look to healthy food sources and/or supplements to get the suggested 7-11 grams each week. Flax seed, Chia seeds, cod liver and fish oils are all great sources. But, take a look at my article/infographic on Essential Fatty Acid Deficiency – Effects, Symptoms & Sources of Omega 3′sYou’ll find everything you need to know there with a helpful list of foods that contain EFA’s.
  • Vitamins & Minerals: Then there are other common nutrient deficiencies that many of us have. Vitamin D3, Vitamin B12, Magnesium and Zinc – to name a few. I’ve linked each one to an article/infographic that will explain each deficiency in more depth. Getting the proper amount of these essential nutrients helps keep your immune system healthy and strong. In regards to eczema, vitamins C and E help protect intestinal cells from oxidative and free radical stress, and C has anti-inflammatory effects, anti-oxidant activity and antibiotic qualities. You can get most of these vitamins and minerals from food especially when you’re eating an anti-inflammatory diet. But, if you eat junk, the nutrients will be depleted. That’s why I stress the importance of proper food and nutrition. Think veggies, fruits, nuts, seeds, fish and water…These foods are alive to keep you alive – with all sorts of needed phytonutrients, vitamins, antioxidants, minerals, etc. Many people still take supplements to ensure they are getting enough.
  • Gamma-Linolenic Acid (GLA): Evening Primrose OilBlack Currant Seed Oil, Borage Oil and Hemp Oil are the four ways to get GLA, another essential fatty acid (Omega 6). There have been studies that point to the use of GLA supplements for helping to clear eczema symptoms. But, like I’ve mentioned previously, we can’t expect GLA alone to do the job for everyone, it depends on why you have ezcema. GLA’s alone may heal people who have atopic ezcema related to an inability to metabolize GLA’s. All together, an taking an GLA supplement will help fight inflammation, promote a healthy immune response, improve the barrier function of the skin and is vital for keeping skin cells moist and strong.
  • Probiotics & Digestive Enzymes: A probiotic supplement will help re-build the friendly bacteria in your gut and fight against bad bacterial that causes inflammation and health issues. Naturopathic Doctor’s Chris D. Meletis, ND, and Jason Barker, ND tell us that probiotic supplementation in pregnant women even helps prevent their baby from developing eczema. You can also eat cultured probiotic foods like sauerkraut, kefir, natto, tempeh, kimchi and miso. Digestive enzymes also play a critical role in your gut health. They protect the gut lining by breaking down food, eliminating toxins and allowing you to better absorb nutrients from your food. Eczema may also be a symptom of something called Leaky Gut Syndrome – a condition that affects the lining of the intestines. Read our short article on Is Your Gut Leaking to learn a bit more about this.

3. Detox & Avoid Toxins as Much as Possible

We can never escape toxins. They are everywhere! In our food, water, air, products we use and we’re even born with an average of 200 toxins passed down from our mother’s womb. The only thing we can do is try our best to avoid them as much as we can and clean out our insides from time to time by detoxification. To help get rid of eczema – here’s what you can do…

  • Detox Your Body: Simply eating the diet we discussed above will help cleanse your body. And sweating and massage are other ways to go about naturally detoxing. But, there are supplements that help eliminate the toxins from your intestines and other organs that can assist your healing process. Just remember to drink a lot of water and herbal tea! Some 5-star rated best-selling products from Natural Healthy Concepts include ClearviteMediClear Powder, and ZeoForce Detoxify Daily. These are professional grade products that you’d most likely find in a healthcare practitioners office.
  • Use Natural personal care products, laundry detergents: If you’re not aware already, conventional personal care products contain many harmful ingredients that your skin absorbs. By first understanding what the ingredients are and being a label inspector – you will eliminate many toxins from entering your body. The same holds true for laundry detergents and softeners. Here’s a better alternative for personal care products and laundry essentials you could try instead. Plus, stay away from the pesticides in your lawn or around your house! They are no good either.

4. Stress Management 

Unfortunately most of us carry around way too much stress in our lives, and stress may lead to health issues. Although stress is probably not the sole cause of eczema, it could be the cause of a bad flare-up or perhaps one of the reasons it’s a challenge to kick it. Here are a few things you can do to help keep your stress level under control.

  • Sleep: Kids 3-12 years of age need at least 10 hours of sleep a day. Adults should get at least eight hours. During sleep, your body restores and repairs itself – it’s as simple as that.
  • Breathe deep: Deep breathing exercises help your body relax. It’s a good way to reduce stress, anxiety and tension. Try it.
  • Acupuncture: Acupuncture is based on a system of meridians, or paths of energy, that flow through the body. The belief is when points in this path are blocked or weakened, the body responds by producing symptoms of illness like eczema. To restore the flow, acupuncture uses insertion of fine needles at specific points along the meridians. Eastern medicine practitioners have used this therapy for centuries. Some people believe acupuncture treatments help with stress relief, and the less stress you carry, the healthier you’ll be.
  • Exercise: You don’t need me to tell you that this is an integral part of being healthy and warding off diseases. Just do it!
  • Stress support supplement: There’s nothing wrong with a stress support supplement to help keep your hormones in check. For some people who just might be a bit more high strung or tense and this just may help do the trick.

5. Topical Natural Treatments For Eczema Symptoms

There are many natural remedies to help ease the itching, redness, dry and flaky symptoms that go along with eczema. Though most of these are topical, whatever you put on your skin does penetrate through to your bloodstream so in a sense it works internally as well. That’s just another good reason why not to use cortisone or steroid cream! To make it simple, here’s a list of things that may work well for you or your child. I’ve linked them all so you can click to read the descriptions, ingredients and reviews.

  • Grandma Lye’s Soap: Natural Healthy Concepts has many customers that love Grandma Lye’s Soap for eczema or Psoriasis symptoms. It may ease discomfort of dry, itchy skin, psoriasis, eczema, or acne with daily use.
  • Essential Oils: Oils with skin cell rejuvenating properties like neroli, rose otto and lavender, chamomile and yarrow are the most effective for soothing and reducing skin inflammation. At least one should be included in your blend and only a small amount of chamomile or yarrow is needed. For example you could mix 2-drops of lavender, 1-drop of neroli, and 1-drop of chamomile or yarrow. Be sure to mix with a carrier oil like almond or jojaba.
  • Trillium Organics Body Oil: Some people think the organic body oil from Trillium Organics is a big help to their  eczema symptoms. It’s a fast-absorbing, light, after bath oil for moisturizing. It contains many beneficial oils for your skin.
  • Salt Baths: An article on bath salts published in the International Journal of Dermatology reports that ”Skin roughness and redness of the skin as a marker for inflammation were significantly reduced after bathing in the salt solution. This demonstrates that bathing in the salt solution was well tolerated, improved skin barrier function, enhanced stratum corneum hydration, and reduced skin roughness and inflammation.”
  • Coconut Oil: Yes, the same organic cold pressed extra virgin coconut oil that you eat can be used for your hair and skin! Try whipping it to make it more like a cream and rub it right into your skin to reap all of it’s healthful benefits.
  • Aloe Vera + Vitamin E: Pure Aloe Vera extracted from the leaf of certified organic plants is one of the most effective skin soothers in nature. It conditions and hydrates dry and rough skin on contact. Vitamin E’s  anti-inflammatory and antioxidant properties may also help relieve eczema when applied topically.
  • Calendula: The flowers of Calendula officinalis are believed to benefit eczema by reducing inflammation, eliminating bacteria, and promote healing of your skin. Boiron’s Homeopathic Calendula Ointment may be beneficial for you to try.

To top it off, here’s a great clip featuring diet and nutrition tips to treat eczema!

What are your natural remedies for eczema? Do you have a testimonial to share or questions to ask? Leave a comment below! – Kids on Medicaid May Face Barriers to Eczema …

FRIDAY, May 3 (HealthDay News) — Many Medicaid-insured children with eczema have limited access to dermatologists, a new study finds.

In conducting the study, researchers posed as parents trying to schedule an appointment for their child with eczema. Unlike children with private insurance, Medicaid-insured children often had to provide a written referral or identification numbers before an appointment could be scheduled.

Eczema most often affects children. The condition causes itchy, red, cracked and dry skin. Eczema can also disrupt sleep and negatively affect behavior and quality of life.

“The purpose of this study was to compare access to dermatologists for new pediatric patients with eczema insured by Medicaid versus private plans,” study first author Dr. Sofia Chaudhry, an assistant professor of dermatology at Saint Louis University and a practicing dermatologist, said in a school news release.

The researchers said the lack of access to a dermatologist is particularly worrisome since eczema affects 20 percent of children in the United States. Complicating matters, health care reform will expand the number of children insured by Medicaid from about 32 million to roughly 50 million.

“This is a complex problem and a major health disparity in our country,” lead study investigator Dr. Elaine Siegfried, a professor of pediatrics at Saint Louis University, said in the news release. “Thirty percent of all children seen in primary care offices have a skin problem. It’s an everyday issue.”

The study revealed that only 19 percent of all dermatologists in 13 U.S. cities accept Medicaid. Of the nearly 500 specialists who were listed as Medicaid-participating providers by Medicaid insurance plans, 44 percent refused to schedule an appointment with a new Medicaid-insured child.

Chaudhry explained why the situation needs to change.

“Since [eczema] can be a chronic debilitating disease, it’s important for these children to be able to see a dermatologist,” she said. “Improved access to dermatologists is important for treating eczema in order to enhance the well-being of affected children and to minimize the expensive cost of emergency care.”

The researchers suggested possible reasons dermatologists may be reluctant to see Medicaid-insured patients, including:

  • Concerns about additional administrative paperwork
  • Convoluted or delayed payments
  • A high no-show rate of patients
  • Extra time required to address patients with complex social issues
  • Possible medical-legal liabilities associated with these patients

The study was published online and in the May print issue of the Journal of the American Academy of Dermatology.

Best Home Remedies to Cure Eczema – Is Eczema Contagious

Are you suffering from eczema? Do you know anybody who has this condition?

EczemaEczema is a disease of the skin marked by a variety of symptoms such as redness, itchiness, flakiness, dryness, and bleeding of the skin.  There are also different types of eczema which you can get.  This disorder is more common in children and young babies, although adults can get it as well. Eczema can be very irritating and inconvenient and can be quite easily made worse through stress.

Hence, it should be treated immediately.

In most cases, eczema is treated by the use of different creams and topical medicines. Despite the fact that these treatments are effective, there are a number of people who are not able to get a hold of them because some of the treatments are quite expensive. It’s a good thing there are plenty of home remedies to cure eczema that are reasonably priced and are readily available.

The few examples which are listed below are important and good to be aware of:

Water Therapy

Water TreatmentWater can be an excellent treatment for eczema strangely enough, and a good substitute for topical medicines, and creams. Place cold water in a fresh towel and apply it to your face as a compress twice daily. It will aid in cooling down the infected area and relieve you of the itchy sensation. Water can also be used when making an almond anti-eczema concoction.

Use mild cleaners for your daily baths.

Finger in waterTaking regular baths for at least twice a day and this will guarantee that your body and skin are free from grime and dirt which you can pick up from your daily routines. Make use of non-irritating, mild skin cleansers, and soaps. These products are effective in removing dirt and impurities, and at the same time are gentle on your skin.

Coconut oil

Coconut OilCoconut oil has been known to make the skin naturally soft and supple. It also has anti-fungal and anti-inflammatory properties, and it functions as an excellent skin moisturizer. Applying coconut oil will help nourish the skin naturally, compared to lathering your skin with chemically-made commercial lotions which can be harmful.

Papaya seeds

PapayaPapaya is a natural source of vitamin C and A, and has excellent healing properties to treat certain types of skin disorders. Papain, an enzyme found in papayas helps soothe irritated, dry and flaky skin. It controls itching and it may also be used to soothe burns. Just mash the seeds and apply a generous amount to the affected area.


SpearmintSpearmint or for its correct term Mentha Spicata reduces the inflammation and swelling caused by eczema. Gather some spearmint leaves, blend them until they form a thick concentrate and apply this to the infected skin areas.


Mudpack for FaceUsing a mudpack to cure eczema is also proven to be a very effective home remedy. Apart from its soothing effect on the face, it serves as a substitute for commercially made mudpacks and facial spa treatments.  Apply a generous amount to your eczema and you will immediately feel its relief effects.

A dose of Vitamin D from the sun.

SunshineA little sun exposure can certainly provide you with enough Vitamin D to aid in treating your eczema. The sun’s hot ray’s can eliminate the bacteria which are causing the skin condition. However, be aware of how much exposure to the sun you have.  Consult with your skin specialist first before exposing yourself to sunlight. It might aggravate the eczema even more.

Home remedies to cure eczema are generally recommended and are usually suggested by alternative medicine experts because of the fact that most of the ingredients are easily available in your own home or at the grocery store. All you have to do is to learn how to prepare them, and in an instant, you will have your very own eczema cure without the hassles of buying anything at the drug store.

Tattoos And Eczema – Eczema Treatment and Care

Tattoos have been around for thousands of years but a huge trend has occurred in recent years with many teens opting for the age old tradition.  Indeed it seems everywhere you look is another person covered in tattoos.

The big questions for people with eczema are:
•    will a tattoo hide my eczema?
•    will a tattoo cause my eczema to flare up?
•    can I get a tattoo if I have eczema?

Most of the information I have found when researching this topic is from public forums.  There is not a lot of researched data, but there is a lot of people with a lot of opinions.

Tattoos in general create a stereotype.  Many people do not like them and will not look at anything positive about them.  Whilst the new wave of people who love them will tell you it is worth the risks.

I am not a fan of tattoos but I will try to keep my information unbiased and will try to only give professional advice not hearsay.

What is a tattoo?

Tattooing involves deliberately placing permanent colours into the skin.  Considering the popularity of tattoos complications are relatively rare.  However the introduction of foreign substances into the skin can result in a toxic or immunological response.

What does this mean for a person with eczema?

Eczema sufferers are at a higher risk of being allergic to the dyes used in tattooing.  It is advisable to have a patch test attended prior to having your tattoo to determine your suitability to having the dye pigments in your dermis.  The tattoo artist will inject a tiny amount of the dye into the skin where you want to have the tattoo.

After a few days have the patch checked by your doctor for inflammation or infection. If it is clear you are most likely not allergic to the dye.  Even if the patch test is clear it is not a guarantee that you will not have a reaction to the tattoo.

It is good to note that some doctors and dermatologists will be against you having a tattoo because of your eczema and some will be against it because they are against tattoos in general.  And sometimes a tattoo artist will refuse to tattoo you because of your condition.

Care and Fading

Eczema skin is dry and scaly and is easily irritated by triggers.  Heat created from the needle which is heated as it penetrates the skin, and the attack of the skin due to the procedure are both triggers that could flare up eczema.  A flare up of eczema is possible even if the tattoo is applied to an area of skin free from eczema.

The healing time for a tattoo will be prolonged if it is performed over eczema or if eczema flares up during/after the procedure.

What to do

Apply moisturisers regularly and resist the urge to scratch.  It is often difficult to tell if the itching is worse when you have eczema or if it is the scabbing of the tattoo causing the itch.  Some people have noted fading of their tattoo due to the use of eczema creams including topical steroids whilst others deny it.

Complications from tattooing are relatively rare however allergic reactions, acute inflammatory reactions, infections and contracting infectious diseases are all possible. Always have a tattoo performed at a reputed tattoo shop that uses sterile instruments.

Note: Although it is possible to acquire HIV from piercing or tattooing, there have been no documented cases of this happening at a professional business.  There are cases of HIV transmission as a result of amateur tattooing.  If any problems develop after piercing or tattooing, see a dermatologist right away.

Henna Tattoos

Henna Tattoos apply the dye to the skin surface so the skin is not penetrated.  Many people believe this to be a safer form of tattooing than permanent tattoos however the American Academy of Dermatology released a warning that black henna tattoos made with the chemical paraphenylenediamine (PPD) can cause serious allergic reactions and eczema.

To sum up

•    Always have the area patch tested before tattooing
•    A tattoo may cause eczema to flare up even if it wasn’t present on that area prior to the tattoo
•    Some tattoo artists will not perform tattoos over eczema
•    Tattoos over eczema or on eczema prone skin may be itchier and will take longer to heal.
•    Consider having a tattoo carefully and always use a reputable tattoo artist who uses sterile equipment.

Virgin Coconut Oil As An Effective Eczema Treatment – Eczema Cure

Virgin Coconut Oil As Eczema TreatmentThere was a time that people steered clear of coconut oil. Because it contained high levels of saturated fat, it was erroneously tagged as unhealthy. Researches later on, however, revealed that saturated fats are healthy; it is trans fats that is described as “bad” fats. 

Coconuts are commonly found in the tropics. It is the source of virgin coconut oil which is hailed for its medicinal properties, including as an effective treatment for eczema skin.

What makes coconuts medicinal is its high medium-chain fatty acid (MCFA) content, which is noted for its ability to prevent heart disease and for lowering the risk of atheroscleroris. Aside from that, MCFA also aids in treating the damaged skin as it enters the cell structures of our connective tissues. Because of this, it is widely celebrated as an excellent and organic way of treating eczema as well as other skin disorder.

MCFA serves as a protection of our skin, thus, preventing us from developing skin infections caused by bacteria and other organism. It is advisable for us to apply coconut oil since ordinary soap washes off the acid that serves as our skin’s protective layer.

There are different types of coconut oil products available in the market today. For the best results, you should either choose the organic coconut oil, or the virgin coconut oil. Ordinary coconut oil is not recommended because it comes from copra, or sun-dried meat of the coconut which are exposed to the air as well as to insects and molds. Copra is usually processed to make refined, bleached and deodorized coconut oil with the use of intense heat and chemicals.

Another thing that separates the virgin variety from the ordinary coconut oil is that the former smells fragrant while the latter does not.

Aside from lathering your skin with virgin coconut oil, you can also incorporate this into your diet using any of the suggested recipes below.

ith so much facts found about the coconut oil, there are now cookbooks written for its use as a key ingredient in recipes. As an Asian living near the Tropics, I have been brought up eating food that makes use of the coconut. My all time favorite is the Coconut Rice. We cook this, with other accompanying dishes, every time we have guests from other parts of the world coming over for dinner.
