Eczema Eczema is also called as dermatitis. Eczema is inflammation of the skin characterised by itching, redness, flaking, pain and small ulcers. Wet eczemas are also accompanied by a thin and watery discharge which, later on, dries leaving thick, yellow crusts. Detergents, acids, alkalis, solvents and abrasive dusts are common causes. Besides, cosmetics, perfumes, nickel fastenings, industrial chemicals, dyes can also cause eczema. The elderly, those with fair and dry skin and those with an allergic background (personal or family history of asthma, hay fever or eczema) are especially vulnerable.Conventional medicine treats this problem with antihistamines, antibiotics, corticosteroids etc but this gives only temporary relief from complaints. Moreover these medicines can not be taken for longer duration due to their harmful side effects on the body. Suppression causes it to reappear again with more intensity. Homeopathy considers skin disease as a manifestation of lowered immunity. So it cures you by raising your immunity level. After taking homeopathic medicines, the texture of your skin will improve. There will be an amelioration in the associated symptoms like pain, itching, and dandruff. Recurrence of skin eruptions will be less frequent, less intense, and of a shorter duration. Finally your skin will be free from eruptions and will revert to its original condition.
