Natural Treatment for Dermatitis & Eczema
When we have these itchy skin scales, the majority of time they come from what’s referred to as eczema. This is the inflammation of the epidermis, or simply the outer layer of the skin.
The form of eczema that stems from non-infection related causes is atopic dermatitis. What happens when one has atopic dermatitis is that scaly patches will cover the scalp, arms, legs, and torso and also cause one’s facial cheeks to become chapped. It is hereditary and will usually begin to show around the age of early childhood. Afterwards later in life the condition will spread to additional areas of the body. Throughout late childhood and the teenage years the condition can show up on the inner elbows and knees, and in adulthood the hands, around the eyelids, on the genitals. The worst case scenario is it will spread over every one of these parts of the body. Significant cases are when the scaly patches will become red, swollen, and cracked. The worst possible situation is that the cracked patches will have tissue fluid oozing out of them. This is usually followed by said fluid crusting over itself.
While many people refer to atopic dermatitis as allergic skin (dermatitis means inflammation of the skin while atopic refers to diseases that may be associated with allergies and tend to run in families), there exist many cases where allergies play no part in the cause of their appearance. As opposed to the culprit being the usual suspects of foods, soaps or detergents, eczema will come on its own schedule.
It must be noted however that eczema does usually rear its ugly head when the air is cold and dry during the months of winter. Frequent washing can aggravate the situation and cause the condition to be a little more entrenched. As the skin is inflamed but not dry with atopic dermatitis, moisturizing will not be of benefit.
The condition is not contagious and does not get progressively worse with age. Studies have actually shown that the majority of people will experience the condition throughout childhood. While for most people there are no seasonal fluctuations as to when they get atopic dermatitis, other experience it more during the summer or winter months.
The last piece in its description is that atopic dermatitis is a dormant condition. This means that one can considerably suffer its symptoms to then have them subside for years and years, to then only come strongly back without warning or reason.
Attempts at natural eczema treatment start with minimizing the itching of it.
We all know the relieving sensation that it is to scratch at it. However this only aggravates it, making it spread further and subside slower. Beyond the first step of not scratching, apply prescription strength steroids that come in the form of a cortisone cream. Be sure to use only mild strength creams ranging from 0.5% to 1% when applying to children’s skin or to more sensitive areas such as the groin or the face.
When you have the condition as an adult or on thicker areas of the skin such as the trunks, arms, or legs, a more potent cortisone (steroid) formula is in order. The stronger medicinal creams containing the steroid formula are clobetasol, triamcinolone, and fluocinonide.
Burrow’s solution is a solution not based on steroids. It is rather a pharmacological preparation that consists of aluminum acetate dissolved in water. It has antimicrobial properties and will assist in drying up atopic dermatitis at its worst stage of oozing tissue fluid out of its dried scale cracks.
