(1.2 Mb) Which Foods Cause Eczema is not exactly an easy question to give an answer to. Why? Because people are not the same - one man’s meat is another man's poison. Allergies are one of the most curious diseases man has come to touch with. It can attack:
anyone (men, women, old, young, children) from anywhere (virtual anything can trigger an allergic reaction) anytime (people enjoy certain food all of their lives, and then all of a sudden they become allergic to it... and then again, after a while the allergy can disappear without a trace!)It is fortunate however, than we can make a list of most common foods that cause eczema, and it is as follows:
1. Dairy products
cow milk (but it could be sheep or goat milk as well) contains three components that can trigger the allergic reaction, and those are casein protein, whey protein, and lactose sugar foods containing milk (butter, cheese, yogurt, ice cream, cheese creams) processed foods containing milk (chocolate, pastries, soups, cheese flavored snacks) 2. Wheat products

(1.3 Mb) If you know exactly which foods cause eczema to appear on your skin (you should take an allergy test to find that out), then start your diet by avoiding the foods that are bad for you. But at the same time, find appropriate substitutes!
So for example, if you're allergic to particular wheat product, like white bread or waffles or whatever, you should try a different kind of bread, or different waffles. It's not the end of the world, you know! And guess what, after a certain period of time you can try that white bread again, and it just might happen that the allergy reaction will not be there anymore. That's the way it goes with allergies - one minute they are alive and kicking, the other they are nowhere to be found!
When talking about diet and eczema, there is one thing that you should do, no matter if your eczema is mild or severe, or if it's periodic or permanent. You should start eating a lot of foods containing the following:
vitamin B complex (B1, B2, B3, B5, B6, B7, B9 and B12)zincfish oilgrape juiceThese four are absolutely essential for your skin. A lot can be said about what they exactly do, but suffice it to say that they maintain healthy skin. How To Treat Eczema Thu, 20 Nov 2008 13:52:00 +0000
(1.1 Mb) How to treat eczema is the question that can be put in two ways:
1. How does modern medicine treat eczema?
The answer to that question is - hardly. Actually, eczema is considered today as one of those chronic and incurable diseases. Medications that your doctors can prescribe are not effective at all in treating this disease.
What kinds of drugs are most frequently administered? Corticosteroids, for treating the skin itself. They come in the form of creams, lotions or pills (e.g. Hydrocortisone). Their effectiveness are limited by the fact that they just decrease the inflammation of the skin and reduce itching sensation. Obviously, they are just treating the symptoms, not the cause of eczema. Apart from that, they could be very detrimental both to your skin and the rest of your body. Side-effects include: aging of skin, skin blood vessels dilatation, weakening of the immune system, sweating, indigestion and many more. Antihistaminics, for inhibition of allergic reaction. They are used to inhibit the release or action of histamine - a biochemical compound involved in local immune response. Again, they are not very effective. Anyone who had some sort of al...
