Eczema Home Remedies - Dealing With Eczema Without Medical Intervention

Author : Rick Minarovich


When it comes to the treatment of eczema, home remedies are often used to some effect where medicine may have failed. The causes of eczema can vary from person to person, and can include hereditary factors, allergic reactions, contact with irritants, stress, and the weather. Because of this, the number of eczema home remedies suggested by individuals seems to grow by the day.

In the case of eczema being inherited from your parents, it is normally done so in the form of allergies. Whatever it is that you may be allergic to, it is important to remove it from your life in order to achieve relief from eczema. Common sources of allergic reactions can be found either in your diet, or around the home in substances like detergents and soap.

Soaps and detergents can also be responsible for eczema when they act as irritants on the skin. This often causes confusion as to whether the eczema is caused by an allergic response to the substance or because the skin is susceptible to irritants. In either case, ceasing the use of the offending substance will help greatly in overcoming eczema.

Some people find that their eczema worsens in cold weather. The skin can lose its natural oils in cold climates, and become dry and irritable. If this is the case then the best treatment would be keeping the skin moisturised In fact, keeping the skin moisturised is important whatever the cause of eczema, home remedies that incorporate moisturising are often the most successful. Also, try not to stay in the bath or shower for long periods, as this can draw essential oils from the skin, which will only exacerbate a condition like eczema.

Aside from these general rules identifying and removing any possible irritants and allergens, as well as keeping the skin moisturised, there is no shortage of eczema home remedies that someone somewhere has had success with. A popular one at the moment is to make a mixture with camphor and sandalwood paste in equal parts, and apply to the affected areas of the skin. Also, some suggest a paste made with turmeric powder and neem leaves, again in equal quantities, works wonders for eczema.

Home remedies are a popular choice because they don't tend to have the drawbacks of potential side effects like medication can. They are also often much cheaper and you may already have the things you need at home. Unfortunately, success at eliminating eczema this way can involve a lot of trial and error before you come across something that works. As is often the case, a lack of guidance in the proper use and application of home and natural remedies can be their ultimate downfall.
