3 Simple Steps To Healing Eczema For Good.
If you're struggling with Eczema the last place your likely to look is in the beauty section of an article site. But here you've found the right place to discover the truth about your Eczema, and the three things you can do right now to start healing your skin.
What is Eczema?
The simplest broadest explanation is: a skin disorder that is characterized by dryness, itching, scaling, sometimes blistering and thickening of the skin.
Eczema comes under many different disguises. You may have been diagnosed with one of the following:
Or you may simply have been labeled 'Atopic' by your Doctor, or are constantly battling dry sore skin, itchy skin, hyper-sensitive skin, or dry patchy skin.
To find the truth about your Eczema you must discover the cause.
Here are some home truths about why you might have Eczema.
1) Poor diet and hydration.
2) Digestive Disorders.
3) Environmental and contact irritants.
4) Immune Disorders.
5) Hormonal problems.
6) Stress - physical, mental and emotional.
It is very rarely just a case of 'bad skin'. Whether we are genetically prone to skin problems or not doesn't matter. There is always a catalyst or cause to bring out the problem. It's just more likely to happen if we are 'prone' to skin problems.
Let me give you a real example:
Joe had no problems with his skin until 6 months ago. Then he started to develop dry scaly patches of skin that started to itch - especially around his wrists, arm pits, and neck. Joe's Doctor prescribed an emollient cream, but it still didn't really get better, so he gave him a steroid based one instead. Jo was happy - it all cleared up, and he stopped using the cream. But in the next 48 hours Joe developed full blown irritating, severely itching, maddening Eczema. Sound familiar?
In this case, the only reason for the irritation was a reaction to the new washing powder. If Joe had looked at his lifestyle and followed the three simple steps to healing his skin, he would never have struggled so much with his skin.
Creams Alone Will Never Cure Eczema.
It is highly unlikely to find a cure for your eczema in a cream or lotion on its own. Some of them appear to clear the symptoms but only really suppress them - causing major problems later on. Steroid based creams are the biggest example of that. There are some very good products that do help heal the skin - but unless you discover the cause of your eczema you will never be rid of it. So discover the cause of your Eczema first.
The three simple steps to Healing Your Eczema is where you start to discover the cause, you work out how to change it. - In Joe's case - changing the washing powder, and you use naturally healing products to bring the quality of your skin back to normal.
