Eczema On The Skin - Natural Remedies

Eczema is a complex disease, but in most cases presents a consequence of allergy. Therefore, many patients improve their situation by expelling certain food from their diet, which usually produce an allergic reaction (e.g. milk, dairy products, eggs, hazelnuts, etc.). Eczema can occur on any part of the body but it is more frequent in areas where the skin folds. 

The first thing to be taken for the prevention and treatment of eczema is to use cotton clothing, avoid strong chemicals for personal hygiene products that irritate the skin, prevent excessive drying of the skin and use a moisturizer for skin care of good quality (the most suitable cream is on a natural basis, without preservatives and strong odors).

The first symptom of eczema is dry blushed skin on which will, in a few days, appear small, liquid filled bubbles, so-called vesicles (small blisters). They soon begin to peel off and to secrete its secretion, and will make you feel itchy. Scratching irritated skin may cause minor superficial injuries, which can become infected. 

Eczema and Vitamins

Sometimes, a lack of vitamin B6 may be the cause of eczema, so in this case a person should increase the intake of this vitamin. Vitamin B2 has an antioxidant effect on the skin and refreshes tissues, leading to healthy skin. While vitamin B3 absorbs carbohydrates in order to maintain healthy skin.

Vitamin E has antioxidant properties, which help to heal skin and hydrates. Additionally, vitamin E helps to strengthen the immune system. It is believed that vitamin E soothes itching of the skin if applied directly to the place affected with eczema. The most productive source of natural vitamin E are wheat germ and wheat germ oil. Then nuts (almonds).

Likewise, the insufficient amount of zinc in the body can cause this skin condition. Foods rich in zinc are whole grains, wheat germ, peas, green beans, red meat, eggs ...

Vitamin C is a natural antihistamine and boosts the immune system. It regulates histamine in the body without causing harmful effects. Although vitamins effectively treat the condition, the form in which we consume them is also very important. You should include them in your daily diet since it is not enough just to take vitamin pills.
