Eczema Treatment Tips

Eczema treatment tips and treatments for eczema are like political opinions; there are many, many of them.

An obvious plan is to stay away from substances that cause reactions. 

Keep the skin as healthy as possible. When bathing, use soaps that are not harsh to the skin.

Tea Tree Oil soaps are gentle and act like a emollient while cleaning.

Do not use any cortisone products that contain steroids. Steroid-based products are known to have many side effects and should be avoided.

Natural products containing herbs and Tea Tree Oil should be used as they are not harsh to the skin. Tea Tree Oil could be used daily as a preventative measure. Natural products are among the best of the eczema treatment tips you can find. 

Diet is very important. Some common foods are known to contain allergens that can aggravate the body and trigger immune responses are daily products such as milk, cheese, ice cream, yogurt and eggs.

Crustacean meat should be greatly reduced or avoided altogether. Lobster, shrimp, squid, prawns, clams, oysters, and other crustaceans can cause allergic reactions.

Salmon should also be avoided along with calcium supplements and color dyes, especially Yellow #5. Additional allergens are products containing NutraSweet.

Possible Lifelong Risks and Dangers From "Sugar-Free" Sodas, Candy, and Foods ?

Aspartame, the chemical name for NutraSweet, is an excitotoxin that according to researchers and physicians studying the adverse effects of aspartame, the following chronic illnesses can be triggered or worsened by ingesting of aspartame:

  • Brain tumors,
  • multiple sclerosis,
  • epilepsy,
  • chronic fatigue syndrome,
  • Parkinson's disease,
  • Alzheimer's,
  • mental retardation,
  • lymphoma,
  • birth defects,
  • fibromyalgia,
  • diabetes,
  • and according to some researchers, aspartame can cause numerous other side effects as well.

The following comment is taken from Dr Mercola's website

"Aspartame accounts for over 75 percent of the adverse reactions to food additives reported to the FDA. Many of these reactions are very serious including seizures and death.

A few of the 90 different documented symptoms listed in the report as being caused by aspartame include:

  • Headaches/migraines,
  • dizziness,
  • seizures,
  • nausea,
  • numbness,
  • muscle spasms,
  • weight gain,
  • rashes,
  • depression,
  • fatigue,
  • irritability,
  • tachycardia,
  • insomnia,
  • vision problems,
  • hearing loss,
  • heart palpitations,
  • breathing difficulties,
  • anxiety attacks,
  • slurred speech,
  • loss of taste,
  • tinnitus,
  • vertigo,
  • memory loss, and
  • joint pain."

Mushrooms sometime cause reactions to eczema patients and should not be eaten. Hot, spicy foods containing large amounts of chemically created vinegar can cause intestinal inflammation which can contribute to outbreaks. 

These eczema treatment tips and guidelines that I have provided above are for information and not to be construed as medical advice. It is not suggested that you should forgo seeking the services of medically trained personnel, however, alternative solutions are suggested that may offer pain relief to those who suffer from dermatitis and other skin problems.
