Cure for Eczema?

Eczema, a painful skin condition is difficult but not impossible to cure. According to media reports today scientists have shown that a cocktail of Chinese herbs had a dramatic effect on on sufferer of atopic eczema.

Eczema is a group of inflammatory skin disorders that cause dry, itchy, flaky, red and sore skin. Atopic eczema the most common form of the condition and affects 10% of children and 3 % of adults and can make their lives a misery

The study of 85 patients by the Chinese University of Hong Kong and published in the British Journal of Dermatology last August showed that a medicine of 5 ancient Chinese herbs improved quality of life by a third and reduced the need for topical steroid treatments by 4 days a month.

Well I don’t know about you but I would hardly call this dramatic. Researchers have acknowledged that severe and widespread atopic eczema often fails to respond adequately to conventional treatments and that Chinese Herbal medicine has an important role to play in the treatment of moderate to severe eczema.

However, many people have recovered from eczema or greatly improved the condition by identifying and avoiding substances that triggers that cause the skin to flare up. Some will have to exclude certain foods and others their environmental triggers like house dust mite and pollens.

Wheat, eggs and dairy products are common food allergies for eczema sufferers but any food or foods could be involved. The mechanism for food allergy is still not fully understood and conventional skin tests for food allergy only reveal IgE allergies and not IgG allergies or intolerances to foods that cause other reactions.

From a nutritional point of view it is known that many eczema sufferers have deficiencies of essential fatty acids and the mineral zinc. There was a time when doctors in the UK were allowed to give prescriptions for Evening Primrose Oil to eczema sufferers as high doses could improve the condition.

Many nutritional medicine doctors and Naturopaths believe that eczema may be caused by yeast overgrowth in the bowel and intestinal toxicity. Bernard Jensen the well known American Naturopath demonstrated that many skin conditions could simply vanish when the bowel and tissues were cleansed.

Eczema is a chronic skin infection wherein the skin becomes red and inflamed, and a scaly, itchy rash develops. It is not uncommon for people with eczema to be genetically predisposed to the disorder, as is also the case with other allergies, hay fever and asthma. Doctors also believe that there are allergens and irritants in an individual's environment that can cause the symptoms of eczema to worsen. An additional hypothesis is that a causal connection exists between eczema and diet, whereby particular types of food can cause symptoms to appear.
