What is Eczema?
(Eczema also known as Atopic Dermatitis), This is an inflammatory condition of the skin that manifests variously as itching, skin inflammation, dry, thickened skin, and tiny blisters that burst, weep, and can become infected. It is a very difficult problem to treat - particularly if the cause isn't found. Look for the cause among allergies, low stomach acid, stress, poor or inadequate diet, dysfunctional immune system, or build up of toxins. "I think however it's an easy problem...it's what your eating or it's comes from what your putting on your skin. But for those that think highly of all doctor's, let's just go with it being a difficult problem to solve :-) ". Eczema isn't contagious, but because it's intensely itchy & scratching can be a problem for the child.
Some will argue to say that eczema is inherited. I disagree, lifestyle is inherited (that's handed down). If you have poor eating habits and you live a poor lifestyle (example- smoking, doing drugs, applying toxic & synthetic body products on your body, promiscuous behavior...etc) they all play a apart in your lifestyle. In truth, this is what you hand down!
If your eating habits are poor...your child eating habits will be poor. POOR=POOR
If your applying natural products to you and your child bodies and you're living a healthy lifestyle, they too, will continue that healthy lifestyle. HEALTHY=HEALTHY
How common is eczema?
