Introduction

Eczema is defined as ‘an inflammatory condition of the skin characterized by redness, itching and oozing vesicular lesions which become scaly, crusted or hardened’.

This basic dictionary definition immediately gives you some idea that eczema is not a pleasant condition to suffer from.

As you will discover as we go through this book, eczema has been around for thousands of years, but sadly, modern medical science is no nearer to curing eczema than were our forefathers.

Like many skin complaints, eczema is one of those things that most people end up treating on a superficial or skin level, primarily because medical science tends to adopt the same attitude.

However, because we are looking for a way of dealing with eczema totally naturally, many of the solutions you will read of in this book adopt a far more holistic approach to getting rid of or at least minimizing the worst effects of eczema.

While there are lots of things that you can do on a topical level (on the surface) that will reduce the severity of eczema using only natural substances, I’m also going to dig down into some other ways that you can deal with your eczema from the inside, rather than doing so only on an external level.

Before moving on to start looking at various treatments that you can use to deal with your eczema problem, let us look in a little more detail at what the condition is, and who gets it. 4

Eczema is an equal opportunities condition…

What is eczema?

Like many other skin conditions such as psoriasis and dandruff, there is a great deal about eczema that is still a mystery to us.

For example, because eczema refers to a set of clinical characteristics rather than one particular condition, the definition of the underlying causes of eczema has often been unsystematic and haphazard (at best). Indeed, over the years, there have been many different terms and names that have been used for the condition, as dozens of so-called experts have come up with their own definitions of what eczema is and what it is not.

Partially as a result of this confusion, eczema is a condition that is often mixed up with psoriasis. However, the two conditions are not identical, the main difference between the two being that adult eczema is often found on the flexor aspect of body joints (those body parts on the inside of a joint that can decrease in size or surface area because of flexing) while psoriasis is generally not found in these particular areas.

What is generally agreed is that eczema is a form of dermatitis. Dermatitis in turn is used as a ‘catch-all’ term for any inflammation of the epidermis, which is the outermost layer of the human skin.

Consequently, for many non-medical professionals, the two words eczema and dermatitis are almost interchangeable, and (just to confuse things a little further) you will also hear eczema referred to as eczematous dermatitis or dermatitis eczema.

If you are anything like me, all of this extra ‘helpful’ information will probably do far more to confuse you than provide any clearer picture of what eczema is and what it isn’t. This is primarily because all we really know about eczema is that it is an inflammation of the skin, which doesn’t really tell you great deal more than you already knew when you started.

 

Who gets eczema?

The answer to the question is, anyone can suffer from eczema.

While it most commonly starts when someone is a baby or child, it can strike men and women, young and the old, so it is not confined to those who are still in the first few years of life.

Although the condition appears differently from person to person, eczema is generally characterized by dry, red patches on the skin that are extremely itchy. Unfortunately, as the natural tendency is to scratch any itch no matter how much you understand that you shouldn’t, 5

eczema is sometimes known as an ‘itch that can cause rashes’ because more often than not, when someone scratches an itch, it generates a rash.

In babies and children, eczema generally appears as dry red patches on the cheeks, forehead, scalp, neck, forearms and legs. Fortunately for most children, their eczema will gradually ease as they grow, so that many children who have suffered from eczema as a baby or toddler will have no problems whatsoever when they become adults.

However, there are many factors that can trigger an outbreak of eczema even in adults who have been clear of the condition for many years. When this happens to adults, the dry red skin will commonly be found on the inside of the elbows, knees and less normally on the ankles. At the same time however, the condition can flare up to show many of the characteristics common in childhood eczema.

Being a chronic condition, there is no known cure for eczema although the condition is generally not dangerous. In addition, there are plenty of different ways of treating it.

However, because the main group of sufferers are children who find it very difficult not to scratch, it is not uncommon for youngsters who suffer from eczema to break the skin, making them far more susceptible to infections and other conditions that attack broken skin such as warts.

Is there more than one type of eczema?

The answer is, there are a few different types of eczema, each of which is believed to have different causes. Hence, the cause of eczema depends on the particular type of condition that the sufferer has.
