Best Medicine for Eczema

Homeopathic Treatment for Eczema

Eczema is a chronic inflammatory, non-contagious condition of the skin which is characterized by a red itchy, bumpy rash. The skin is dry and flaky and can also lead to thickening and hardening (lichenification) at the later stages. 

It is often synonymously used with the term ‘dermatitis’ and ‘atopic dermatitis’. Eczema may be either acute or chronic. It may occur abruptly or gradually and may last for a few weeks or months or years. The word ‘atopy’ itself refers to genetic tendencies to develop other atopic diseases, such as asthma, allergic rhinitis, urticaria (hives), food allergies, hay fever, etc.

It is typically associated with increased immune responses to commonly inhaled allergens or food allergens. It is also observed that some people outgrow from the condition later in their life and may not need any treatment. 

Incidence: It is estimated that most forms of eczema generally start in childhood, but individuals at any age can be affected. About 10%-30% of the population in the United States is affected by this skin condition, and the individuals who live in colder climates are more prone to contract it. Males and females are equally affected by it. 

How Homeopathy can help in curing Eczema ?

Homeopathy is by far the safest and more or less a permanent solution for skin allergies like eczema. It helps in relieving you of the irritation and swelling by aiming to treat the excess of histamine release, which is the root cause of the disease. It follows the unique mind and body concept and aims to address the triggers within the body that cause the disease. 

Scope of Improvement using Eczema

  • Homeopathy has a good scope in treating recently detected cases of mild and moderate eczema. These cases usually require eight to twelve months of treatment.
  • Advanced cases and steroid-dependent cases of eczema (patients who have applied or consumed steroid medications for a long time) may need a few years of treatment for a sustained recovery. 
  • Recently-detected cases of eczema usually need a short course homeopathic treatment, whereas long-standing cases (chronic) need long-term treatment. 
  • The treatment time varies from one person to person depending on their constitution, age, and genetic background. 
  • Homeopathic medicines are safe and do not have any side-effects, even after consuming for a long time.
