How To Treat Eczema Naturally


Eczema is a skin condition that is medically known as atopic dermatitis. People who have eczema develop red, scaly, itchy rashes on their skin. These patches can be anywhere on the body; however, they are most typically found on the scalp, face, ankles, hands, and knees. Severe cases can develop blisters the ooze and form crust. In addition to the misery from the itching, most people with eczema are acutely self-conscious of their appearance.

Treating eczema medically involves topical creams and steroids. Many people do not tolerate steroids well and seek other treatment options that are more natural. If you are searching for a natural treatment for your eczema, you can try some of the advice included here.

Dietary Choices

The food you eat every day plays a role in many aspects of your health, including eczema breakouts and irritation. You can make changes to your diet such as eliminating all processed foods and eating a healthier diet. You should also avoid milk and dairy products as they may weaken your immune system.  Many people with eczema have reported relief when they switched to organic fruits and vegetables and nuts, all eaten primarily raw. There is also some evidence that salmon and fish can be beneficial due to the omega acids.

Apple Cider Vinegar
