Treating eczema, a condition whose cause remains unclear, can turn out to be a rather sensitive topic. For one thing, most over-the-counter and doctor-prescribed treatments for eczema have been proven to be ineffective—not to mention expensive and laced with side effects. That being said, it’s important to know how to prevent the evolution of mild cases of eczema and alleviate the pain caused by the more severe ones.

ECZEMA TREATMENT TIPS FOR ADULTS

The truth is modern medicine still can’t pinpoint exactly what will work for the apparition of eczema rashes on your skin.

 

Why pay so much lip-service to the different types of eczemas?

After all, they’re just rashes that can’t be cured and tend to go away on their own, right? While the above may be true, it’s also true that eczema is an issue for 10-20% of U.S. children and approximately 3% of adults. The drop in percentage of people affected is explicable through the fact that most children born with eczema will outgrow it by age 10.

 

Is there a connection between diet and wrinkled skin? Are there anti-aging foods?

Ever heard the saying: “Don’t ask a question if you are not prepared to hear the answer”?

The other side of that coin is: “Don’t illicit a question if you don’t have the answer”.

For the past 20 years, many of our patients have asked about their diets, “is there such a thing as anti-aging foods?”. What should they eat or avoid eating to keep from getting wrinkles, acne or Rosacea.  Believing that diet is critically important for the state of one’s health and wellness I have always wanted to enlighten our patients with clear and unambiguous answers.  However, whereas many serious studies have been conducted regarding diet and a variety of serious health issues, such as heart disease and numerous other conditions, there is only one notable study concerning diet and skin wrinkling: the Monash study conducted at the University of Melbourne Australia.

 

We call them rashes and eczemas. Some are caused by genetics, others by lifestyle factors, and many are linked with allergies. Most are treated with the aid of topical corticosteroids and constant skin moisturizing.

Yet, after all is said and done,  how much do we really know about the different types of dermatitis out there? What are they? What causes them? Can they be prevented? Read on, to learn more about the seven most often encountered types of dermatitis.

 

Rosacea… WOW…. What a confusing and tangled story!

WHAT IS ROSACEA

Rosacea (ro-zay-sha) as its name implies – sounds like “rose” – is simply redness in the skin of a person’s face. It is quite common, affecting over 10 million people in the United States and approximately 45 million worldwide. Rosacea affects mainly people with pale skin, primarily Caucasians from Irish, Scottish or English descent, though it is not unusual among other white Europeans and a smaller percentage of Asians. Though the disorder is more frequently found in women, the condition tends to be more severe in men.
