Nobody amongst us would like to keep scratching all the time. It can be highly embarrassing especially when in a crowd. But, what can we do if affected by Eczema?
This is quite a neglected disorder unless it gains considerable proportion.
How do we know when it is just the beginning? What is the best cure for Eczema?
Eczema is a skin disease characterized by peeling of skin and itching. The reasons could be anything ranging from an allergy to an underlying auto immune disorder. It usually starts with a dry patch somewhere in the body and then if not attended to spreads to other parts of the body.
The condition is worse during winter due to lack of moisture because of the dry weather conditions.
So, what is the best way to treat eczema? Skin needs to be well moisturized and hydrated. Wearing soft cotton fabric prevents excessive sweating and itching. Try and avoid scratching as that causes eczema to spread rapidly.
Avoid stress as it is known to cause acute flare ups.
Drink plenty of water to keep the skin hydrated.
Medical treatment includes local applications containing steroids and oral anti histaminics. But, how long can these be taken is a debatable issue.
Eczema being a stubborn illness needs to be treated for longer periods of time. In such cases, natural products provide a safer option. They can be taken for longer duration without any potential side effects and relapses.
