Finding the right eczema natural remedy takes patience, and while looking and trying each one, precaution must be taken to avoid any further aggravation or outbreak. In doing so, you must first understand where the root cause of your eczema comes from. There are many types of eczema, two of the most common ones are atopic and contact dermatitis. These two are caused mainly by the hypersensitivity of the immune system to substances, conditions, and exposures.

  • The atopic indication is rashes appear after itching and scratching. This is due to the reaction of the immune system from exposure to anything that it is hypersensitive to. Atopic dermatitis usually appears during infancy and early childhood; there are instances wherein the dermatitis is outgrown by a child by the age of 5 years, but to some, it either develops to some other forms or types of dermatitis as a child turns to puberty and adulthood; or another possibility is for atopic dermatitis developing into other atopic conditions, chances of that happening are 50% to 66%. The reason for the atopic march or transformation into other atopic conditions is the damaged skin from the rashes of eczema releases a chemical substance, when this enters the body’s system it contributes to the hypersensitivity of the immune that invokes reaction in other forms, such as asthma and allergic rhinitis or hay fever. Preventing an atopic march can be possible if the dermatitis is acted upon immediately by applying an eczema natural remedy.
  • Contact dermatitis comes in two forms, allergic and irritant. Allergic contact dermatitis is triggered by exposure to substances, natural or synthetic that the immune is hypersensitive to. Examples of these natural substances are protein in certain foods such as cow’s milk, chicken eggs, peanuts, tree nuts, and wheat; and there are occurrences when eczema is just a symptom or indication of a more severe reaction of the body to allergens, this is called anaphylaxis. Irritant contact dermatitis on the other hand is developed by continuous exposure to substances such as chemicals from detergents, food, and even metal such as mercury. Eczema occurs when the skin is not allowed to heal from damages caused by the substance-exposed to it, the immune system reacts by again releasing the agents that would protect the body and start the healing process non-stop. Protection from irritants by wearing proper gear if unable to avoid the substance and application of an eczema natural remedy to ease the irritation immediately would help in controlling dermatitis, and avoid lichenification, discolorization, and thickening of the skin with a leathery texture.
