Dealing with Eczema
There are many different types of eczema but the most common which affects one in nine people in the UK is Atopic Eczema, otherwise known as Atopic Dermatitis, it usually affects children but can continue into adulthood.
It is commonly diagnosed by redness and irritation behind the joints, such as knees and elbows which can often spread around the body.
What Causes Eczema
The exact cause of eczema is unknown but studies have shown it is often caused by a reaction to something in everyday life, this can vary from hay fever or dust to the synthetic chemicals in household cleaners, laundry detergents or skincare products, or the ingredients in certain foods such as dairy, nut, soya or wheat.
The very best way to treat eczema is to pinpoint what exactly is causing the skin outbreak and avoiding it, stop using it, or remove it from your diet. Of course that’s easier said than done.
To help treat an eczema outbreak there are many different creams on the market both prescription and available over the counter, these mainstream products are designed to provide temporary relief from irritable dry skin and rashes. If you look at the ingredients on the back you may see ingredients such as Certly Alcohol, which can cause irritation, and Paraffin which dries out the skin, these products are cheap and harsh in large quantities or when used extensively, which is why most are only suitable for short term use.
