WHAT IS ECZEMA?

WHAT IS ECZEMA?

Whilst there is a degree of uncertainty even amongst medical experts as to what exactly eczema is, some unfortunate sufferers would sum it up as the bane of their lives! Representing more than a mere inconvenience, it bears negative physical and emotional effects. Invading the lives of a significant and increasing percentage of people of all ages, and from all walks of life, eczema manifests on the human body as itchy and inflamed patches of skin. These unsightly affected areas are often red, dry and scaly with visible lumps and blisters (more extreme cases can include crusting, bleeding or weeping, particularly if there is also an associated infection).

More widespread amongst children than adults, eczema commonly affects the areas around the joints, such as elbows and behind the knees. It can be ‘acute’, as in a rapid flare up, ‘chronic’ (long-standing), and also ‘infected’. Symptoms can be mild, limited to slight occasional itchiness in a certain patch of skin. In severe cases, it can be prevalent across the entire body, covering it with highly itchy and unpleasant, unattractive red and flaky areas. The impact on a person unlucky enough to be afflicted with such a terrifying case of this condition must be, simply put, unimaginable! Causing severe discomfort and soreness, stress, frustration, sleep loss, self-consciousness and even depression, eczema, whilst not being contagious, can invade every aspect of a person’s life, from health and well being, to professional, social and personal.

So what causes this abomination? The fact that an array of skin conditions come under the general classification ‘eczema’ means that it can be difficult to determine what factors cause the condition to occur in any singular person. The various types include ‘atopic’, the most common form, thought to be caused by a combination of environmental and genetic factors, particularly where there is a history of asthma and hay fever. It has also been linked to an overactive immune system, and ‘barrier defect’, meaning gaps in the skin that allow too much water loss and entry of germs. ‘Allergic contact eczema’ is due to an individual’s sensitivity to a particular substance, whilst ‘irritant contact’ is brought on through skin contact with irritating chemicals and powders etc. Other types could include ‘seborrhoeic’, also resulting when various factors, including the person’s immune system, combine.

In the absence of an acknowledged cure for eczema, most medical treatments aim to reduce and ease symptoms. When emollients (creams, oils and lotions applied to hydrate the skin and lock in moisture) do not suffice, antihistamines, immune-suppressing drugs or corticosteroids can be prescribed to reduce inflammation, though their repeated use can cause potentially harmful side effects including skin thinning. Unlike other treatments, Honeyderm’s Dermatonic P uses a revolutionary all-natural approach to successfully aid the body to overcome this disease, meaning no unwanted and potentially dangerous side effects.

The natural supplements, comprising honey, beehive ingredients and selected herbs help to provide therapeutic relief from the symptoms of eczema and other skin conditions, whilst also attacking the route of the problem through cell support and immune stimulation. Whilst the cause of many such conditions is still not fully understood, where most treatments fail to acknowledge the pivotal role of the immune system in aiding the skin to overcome illness, Dermatonic P employs the natural healing power of honeybee products and active botanicals in support of the all-important immune system. For eczema, as well as an array of other conditions, perhaps we’d be well advised to look no further than Mother Nature’s own garden!
