Treating Eczema Naturally
Did you know that up to 17 percent of Canadians will suffer from some form of eczema in their lifetime? While less dangerous compared to other forms of skin disease, atopic eczema causes discomfort and can affect the quality of life for those afflicted. Learn what causes flare ups and how to treat symptoms below!
What Causes Eczema?
Despite being a well-known form of dermatitis, there is no singular cause that prompts the skin irritation associated with eczema. Individuals may experience symptoms as the result of coming into contact with an irritant, during periods of prolonged stress, or when the immune system is weakened (particularly in the presence of a respiratory cold or infection). The most common signs of a flare-up include:
- Patches of dry and itchy skin, often with redness and light swelling
- The area may develop scabs and ooze fluid if scratched
- Periods of remittance followed by another flare up
Eczema can affect people of all ages, genders, and backgrounds. Symptoms can be particularly harsh for those living in climates that experience extreme heat or cold, as well as a dry atmosphere.
There is no present cure for eczema, but mild lifestyle changes and the use of special creams can help navigate and reduce the duration of your flareups. Consulting your physician when you first begin to experience symptoms can help accurately diagnosis your condition, as well as give you a reliable roadmap for treatment. In severe cases, a steroidal cream may be prescribed to help eliminate rashes and painful itching. Prolonged use of these creams is typically not advised, however, and overuse may lead to thinning of the skin, a burning sensation on the affected area, and increased sensitivity.
Using a natural substitute like Hunaza®, paired with the following lifestyle changes can make a profound difference for those suffering from eczema:
- Moisturizing frequently using gentle, unscented lotions.
- Avoid sudden climate changes when possible.
- Increase your daily water intake.
- Practice techniques to reduce stress.
- Wearing light breathable clothing.
