Eczema is an itchy, red and swollen inflammation in the skin.
There are several types of eczema: Atopic Dermatitis, and Contact Dermatitis are the two most common varieties. Atopic dermatitis is a hereditary trait quite common in North America. Contact Dermatitis is an eczema triggered by an allergic reaction to an irritant, or by repeated exposure to a harsh chemical that damages the outer layer of skin.
Eczema Skin Care Facts:
Eczema usually appears first in childhood.
If you suffer from Atopic dermatitis, you shouldn’t have to wait long for your first flare up. Right in infancy, eczema will appear on the skin around the face and neck, or perhaps behind the knees or the inside of the elbow. Contact Dermatitis will become more likely as we grow older, developing allergic reactions to the irritants in our environment.
Eczema Is Not Contagious.
You cannot catch eczema by coming into contact with someone else who suffers from it. It is not a leprosy. It is also important to realize that eczema is not related to the victims hygiene. Washing regularly will not impact your eczema (unless the soap your using is making it worse).
There Are Several Causes For Eczema.
Although the science of dermatology has come a long way, a single determining cause for eczema remains unknown. What is known is that a number of both internal and external factors contribute to the symptoms. Atopic Dermatitis is associated with the lack of an essential oil in the skin. Without it, the skin has less potential to retain its moisture. Contact dermititis is caused by an overreaction in the immune system after an allergic reaction. T-cells in the blood attack the cells of the epidermis, leaving the skin inflamed and extremely sensitive.

Eczema: Foods that are Acceptable
Be careful of chicken. It needs to be organic. Goose, turkey, duck or rabbit, fresh fish from ocean or from the lake (no farmed fish), pasta from unbleached flour, rice, potatoes, rye bread, eggs from feed ranch, hormany milk, feta cheese (no other kind), pizza (but without tomatoes or tomato sauce); ask for a double portion of feta cheese instead, pizza with olives, mushrooms, pepperoni are acceptable, but without tomatoes or tomato sauce.
The Irritant Journal
Another great idea is to start an irritant journal. While the foods listed above are a good place to start, you may be allergic to foods that were not listed, or perhaps might be listed as acceptable. Try to cook from home and make note of the foods you eat. After you have a bad reaction, mark down when it happened and notice what foods you’ve been eating. Continue doing this and you will soon have a much better idea of what foods are safe for you, and what foods to avoid.
