Eczema is a chronic inflammatory skin condition that leads to red, dry, and itchy skin. The cause of eczema is unknown. Eczema is linked to an over-active immune system. The immune system is triggered by a substance inside or outside of the body. When the substance stimulates the body, the immune system responds by producing inflammation. Eczema is commonly found in children but can occur in adults. They tend to flare up periodically on the face, inside the elbows and the knees, and on hands and feet. Eczema is noncontagious and may clear up with time or get worse over time.
Symptoms of eczema vary in each individual, and an outbreak can occur in different areas of the body throughout the various times of the year. An individual may experience dry and itchy skin that is usually severe at night. When scratched, fluid may leak and crust over, leaving the skin to feel raw, sensitive, and swollen. Over time, the skin will thicken, crack, scale, and turn into red to brownish-gray patches. For infants, they may experience eczema outbreaks on their head and scalp.
Risk Factors are:
Family members with a history of eczema, other allergies, and asthma.
MODERN MEDICINE TREATMENT FOR ECZEMA | DRUG MEDICINE TREATMENT
There is no cure for eczema. Treatments vary from medication to home remedies to help relieve itching and prevent new outbreaks, but not all treatment will work for everyone. It may take various treatments or home remedies for several months or years to control eczema. Topical cream or ointment prescribed by their doctor can help control itch and repair the skin, but with overuse of the medication, it can cause thin skin, affects the immune system, and have black box warning of the potential risk of cancer. Oral medication helps with inflammation but not recommended for long term used due to potentially serious side effects. Treatments for infants are identified and avoid the substance that irritates their skin, avoid extreme temperature, and moisturize their skin with bath oils, creams, or ointments.
NATURAL MEDICINE AND ACUPUNCTURE TO BENEFIT ECZEMA
Natural medicine is safe, gentle and effective to treat Eczema. We have help patients with various skin conditions and eczema with great clinical results. Acupuncture and herbal medicine induce homeostatic response on the cellular level by influencing the body's internal organs to correct imbalances in their digestion, absorption, and energy production activities. They stimulate the nervous system to release chemicals in the muscles, spinal cord, and brain. These chemicals will change the experience of pain, or they will trigger the release of other chemicals and hormones which influence the body's own internal regulation system. Acupuncture helps eczema to balance the immune system response to the substance inside and outside of the body, reduce inflammation, and improve their quality of life. Acupuncture is safe and painless. There are no drugs or hazardous equipment used, and no surgical operation performed.
