Eczema and Homeopathy
Eczema is an inflammation of the skin which may cause dryness, flakiness, heat and most importantly itching.
There are two main categories of eczema:
- Contact eczema occurs when substances or chemicals cause irritation that leads to an allergic reaction in the skin.
- Atopic eczema, is when there is a genetic or inherited tendency to develop the condition.
Many things cause eczema. The most common is the general allergy over sensitivity. This sort of eczema is known as atopic eczema, and it is linked with asthma and hay fever. This condition often runs together in family.
Another type is infantile eczema which often affects young babies. This may lead to a patch below their chins which gets wet from dribbling, and may be associated with cradle cap.
Other types of causes can also be due to contact with substances which irritates the skin chemically like detergent, soap, diesel or engine oils, strong chemicals, cleaners as well as nickel, rubbers etc.
Eczema makes the skin itchy and dry, sometimes scaly. This skin can crack, becoming red and inflamed and leaving it prone to infection. This in turn can cause weeping of fluid (wet eczema), crusting and scabbing.
