Nothing can ever be worse than the skin problem; especially, when the problem includes rashes, dryness of skin and itchiness. Eczema is a chronic skin condition in which there is an irritation and inflammation of the skin. It is neither a serious problem, nor is it contagious. However, the red, swollen and itchy skin can cause emotional and psychosocial stress in affected individuals. Eczema is frequently seen in infants and children, and most will outgrow it before school age. But, for some, it can remain a long-lasting problem.
WHAT CAUSES ECZEMA?
Even though the exact eczema cause is unknown, it is thought to be caused due to an exaggerated response by the body’s immune system to an irritant. It is commonly seen in families with a history of other allergic conditions and asthma. Beside the cause, there are triggers which can result in flare-ups. Some people can have eczema flare-ups in response to certain substances or conditions, such as rough materials or a reaction to hot or cold weather. Contact with some household products like soap or detergent, or animal dander can also result in an outbreak. Stress may worsen eczema.
It was the time when I was 10-year-old and suffering from itchy eruptions all over the body that exude blood and pus. My parents were really worried about me as I was suffering from these itchy eruptions since birth. I had tried the best conventional treatment, but all ineffective. No amount of steroid creams and emollients provided any relief to me. I was highly irritated, crying and screaming all the time.
I used to be comparatively calm when I was carried by someone. But, when I go to bed to sleep, I would start yelling and also get violent. After this I was taken to a homeopathy clinic and the doctor asked my mother about my emotional condition during pregnancy; she revealed that she went through a lot of suppressed emotions and anger at that time. Based on her suppressed anger during pregnancy and excessive anger in her child, the doctor gave me the best suitable medicine. This not only reduced the itchiness, eruptions and discharges, but also calmed me down and made me sleep soundly. The eruptions too reduced — this was something that had not happened before. Homeopathic medicines are sometimes prescribed not only on the basis of the patient’s past or family history, but also on the basis of certain emotional reactions during the mother’s pregnancy.
Homeopathic treatment of eczema aims at treating the person and not just the disease in isolation. Homeopathic medicines gently propel the power of our immune system to scour the illness from its roots. Homeopathy avoids the use of external applications in treating eczema or any other skin disease or hair loss problem. It selects an appropriate remedy to treat the individual — keeping in mind their physical, mental and emotional states, family history, and so on. Homeopathic treatment for hair loss is equally valued and always works the best. So it is not just limited to any skin disease but also to any other worse problem.
