What is eczema?

Eczema is a different pathology from psoriasis, although the symptoms are similar and the recommended treatments often identical for both diseases.

This is also why Pso Natura treatments are also aimed at people suffering from eczema or psoriasis.

This section allows you to understand eczema and its different variants, such as atopic dermatitis, or contact eczema. Here we will evaluate together the definition of eczema, its symptoms, but also the traditional treatments for eczema and the natural alternatives which can help to soothe the skin, or even make the traces disappear, as in the case of our treatments.

Atopic dermatitis, eczema, definition

Eczema is a immune system disease with respect to environmental allergens (substances that can cause allergies, also called ATOPENES). A atopic skin is skin that is genetically predisposed to allergies.

The routes of penetration of these atopenes are not always the skin (except contact eczema), but the respiratory tract and the digestive tract (the latter particularly in very young children).

Eczema, also called dermatitis, is essentially inflammation not contagious of the skin which is accompanied by irritated red patches itchy, crusts of dry skin and scales, at specific locations on the body (depending on the type of eczema), itching and the appearance of small vesicles. Ultimately, the skin can become thicker, drier, lose its hair and also change pigmentation.

For the young child suffering from eczema, also called atopic, the goal to achieve is to help the proper construction of its immune system by supporting it until it matures (7 years). All children are born with a Th2-oriented immune system and immaturity of digestive function. Digestive maturity sets in around 18 months to 2 years. The child's immune system reaches maturity at 7 years old.

This tolerance (maturity) will be extremely facilitated by avoiding or preventing foods that trigger atopic dermatitis in infants.

Symptoms of eczema

In the infant, this type of eczema mainly affects the raised parts such as the play, le scalp, the shoulders, thorax and thumb in children who suck it, then between 2 and 7 years old, the folds of the elbows, wrists, knees, ankles are affected.

During teenagehood, areas around the eyes and on the soles of the feet may be affected.

In adults, eczema is frequently located on the neck, ankles, feet, hands.

Affected people experience periods commonly known as “eczema flare-ups,” during which symptoms worsen. These attacks, of varying duration, are interspersed with episodes of remission.

Different types of eczema

Atopic eczema / atopic dermatitis

Contact dermatitis

Atopic eczema on the armAtopic eczema is the most common form of chronic eczema.

Atopic eczema results in a excessive reaction of the immune system, a kind of hyper sensitivity to allergens (dust, pollen, animal hair, etc.) which manifests itself on the skin.

Atopic people often suffer, simultaneously or alternately, from multiple allergic reactions, such as hay fever, hives, asthma or food allergies. These allergies often have a hereditary component since they are observed in many cases within families where at least one member suffers from them. Currently, we do not yet know the cause.

In 90% of cases, this type of eczema occurs before the age of five. Adults exposed to allergens or irritants in the workplace can also suffer from atopic eczema.

contact dermatitis on the hand and fingersThis type of eczema is also called allergic eczema. Attacks are caused by irritation of the skin from contact with foaming bath products, soap, sweat, saliva, etc. Allergic contact dermatitis is a reaction that may be instantaneous, or may appear within hours of contact with plants, a specific chemical, or a metal (for example, nickel from jewelry or coins). Symptoms can vary greatly in intensity depending on the nature of the product in question, ranging from simple redness to ulceration.

How do you recognize contact eczema?

Contact eczema most often manifests itself in the form of itchy red patches, with often crumbled contours. They start at the point of contact with the allergen and then can spread. You should know that typical eczema oozes at the beginning of its evolution, which is often a source of concern for the patient who believes it to be an infection. Afterwards, the lesions become drier and always itch. They can disappear spontaneously if contact with the allergen stops.
