Have you ever asked the above question? Or have you ever met a physician and asked; “how to get rid of eczema – without stress?” Well the obvious answer most physicians will abruptly give you is “probably”.
Believe it or not, though eczema is common allergic reaction in children, but it also does occur in adults. Childhood eczema often begins at infancy. The rash appears on the face, neck and fold of elbows and knees (most common in some children).
Today the word “eczema” is synonymous with chronic dermatitis. At home and at work, the skin is exposed to all kinds of irritants, and normally it is able to resist their harmful effects. But some of these substances lead to allergic reactions in certain people, and the number of such substances is increasing as new products and compounds are developed.
According to Wikipedia, it defines eczema to be: “broadly applied to a range of persistent skin conditions. These include dryness and recurring skin rashes that are characterized by one or more of these symptoms: redness, skin edema (swelling), itching and dryness, crusting, flaking, blistering, cracking, oozing, or bleeding. Areas of temporary skin discoloration may appear and are sometimes due to healed injuries. Scratching open a healing lesion may result in scarring and may enlarge the rash.”
It may disappear by itself when an offending food is removed from the diet or may become extensive and in some cases or instances, cover the entire surface of the body. The cause of eczema can either be due to external or traumatic factors (exogenous) or due to internal or constitutional factors (endogenous).
Eczema can also be classified. We have the common eczema and the less common ones.
The common ones are:
- Atopic Eczema: is an allergic disease believed to have a hereditary component and often runs in families whose members also have asthma.
- Xerotic Eczema: is dry skin that becomes so serious it turns into eczema. It worsens in dry winter weather, and limbs and trunk are most often affected
- Seborrhoeic dermatitis: is a condition sometimes classified as a form of eczema that is closely related to dandruff. It causes dry or greasy peeling of the scalp, eyebrows, and face, and sometimes trunk.
The less common ones are:
- Dyshidrosis: only occurs on palms, soles, and sides of fingers and toes. Tiny opaque bumps called vesicles, thickening, and cracks are accompanied by itching, which gets worse at night.
- Discoid eczema: is characterized by round spots of oozing or dry rash, with clear boundaries, often on lower legs.
- Venous eczema: occurs in people with impaired circulation, varicose veins and edema, and is particularly common in the ankle area of people over 50.
- Autoeczematization: is an eczematous reaction to an infection with parasites, fungi, bacteria or viruses. It is completely curable with the clearance of the original infection that caused it.
That being said, lets now see how to get rid of eczema as we move on to the next heading.
How to Effectively Get Rid of Eczema – Simple Eczema Remedies.
Below are the surest ways in controlling the symptoms of this deadly skin infection:
- In treating contact dermatitis, first remove the offending allergen.
- Put cold compresses on the affected skin
- Wash the affected part with soap and boiled water, gently soaking off the crust.
- Let the sunlight fall on the patches
- Paint the sores with genital violet: Genital violet helps fight certain infections, including eczema and sores with purrs. Dissolve a teaspoon of genital violet in a half liter of water. This makes 2% solution. Then paint on the sores.
- Using anti-biotic cream: These are expensive and often do no more good than genital violet. However, they do not color the skin or clothes and are of use in treating skin infections like eczema and impetigo. A good ointment is the one that contains neomycin/polymixin combination. The one I do recommend, however, is polysporin.
- Using a cortisone cream: In difficult cases, cortisone or cortico-steroid cream can be used for weeping of severely itchy skin irritations caused by insect’s bites, by touching certain poisonous plants or other dangerous things inadvertently. They are useful in treating eczema. Use 3 or 4 times daily. Avoid using for long periods of time, or on large areas of the skin.
- Seek medical help: Please take good care to heed to every instruction found on this page and act as fast as you can to curb this menace (so to say) if you do have it or you know someone that does. Endeavor to get help from a qualified physician. He or she will help and give you advice and practical suggestions on how to get rid of eczema successfully.
Note: There is no known cure for eczema; therefore, treatments are aimed to control the symptoms by reducing inflammation and relieving itching. So all the treatments you see above are aimed at controlling its symptoms.
