These irritants can be things such as, certain types of materials or fabric, soaps, washing detergents, some animals allergies, cosmetics products, being excessively exposed to a very cold or very hot weather, that can cause eczema to flare up. Stress can also cause an eczema flare up.
Eczema is also known as a handful of dermatological medical conditions. It affects both children and adults. It’s symptoms can be easily identified; they usually appear is areas such as hands, feet, elbows, face, neck, etc. It mostly appears as a patch of thickened, swollen and red skin and is always accompanied by a severe and intolerable itching which causes rashes to break out when scratched.
Eczema is generally a hereditary and chronic condition. The rashes that accompany it turns to weeping blisters which will burst with any slight aggravation. It will be very slow to heal and will then turn back into a bigger patch of swollen, red, extremely dry skin.
Finding a relief for the symptoms when it flares up, is the biggest priority.
Find out what is causing your eczema.
Before you can effectively treat your eczema, you have to first of all find out what causes the flare ups for you. When you find out the root cause, treatment and relief will be easier; because if you do not know the cause, you will just be treating the surface symptoms and it will keep coming back.
√ Food allergies are one of the main culprits. Try cutting out certain foods you think you might be allergic to, such as wheat, dairy, nuts, fish, etc, soy, additives, artificial food colouring, etc.
Some food allergies usually take a while to develop. So even if you think you’re not currently or previously been allergic to some foods doesn’t mean necessarily mean you’re not allergic to certain foods. So take extra care.
Try to eliminate each food from your diet one at a time to see which one makes a difference to your flare ups. Take notes and be very watchful and conscious of the changes in your symptoms during this experimental process. This will help you in figuring out what might be causing your flare ups, so you can effectively treat it.
√ Antibiotics, a bout of food poisoning or chronic digestive problems are another culprits.
If you have or have had one of these, then it’s most probable that your intestinal microfiber has been affected.
There are more than hundreds of good bacteria living inside our gut. When they become unbalanced, the bad bacteria will take over, resulting in an impaired ability to digest food and properly absorb nutrients.
What most people are not aware of is that this imbalance of microflora can also lead to such skin problems as this.
Adding more probiotic foods to your diet is an effective way to reverse this internal cause of eczema.
√ Any other irritant that might be causing your flare-ups. Pinpoint exactly what causes it or a combination of things that cause it. Doing so will drastically increase your chances of successfully combating eczema.
