If you suffer from eczema, then our hearts go out to you because we know how painful and uncomfortable it can be. Not to mention the fact it can sap your self-confidence as you try to hide away exposed skin that is affected.
Eczema, also known as atopic dermatitis, is an inflammatory skin condition that presents itself as red, inflamed patches of skin that is very itchy, and the inflamed skin may even contain fluid-filled bumps.
Scratching provides only temporary relief, in fact, the more you scratch the itchier it gets, and of course, you put yourself at risk of infection as you may tear the skin.
Eczema may have hereditary factors, and is definitely not contagious, however, your lifestyle factors determine whether or not your eczema manifests, no matter how rampant it may be in your family.
Eczema may be short-lived, a result of using a skincare product that is too harsh for your sensitive skin, or it may be more chronic, the result of constant stress or a poor diet.
While there is no definite cure, there are certainly many natural ways you can finally start to support the treatment of your eczema, because you have more important things to worry about than itchy skin!
