Eczema | Q & A | Eczema Treatment and Care

What is eczema?
Eczema is a common skin condition that particularly affects the inner knees and elbows, face, neck and chest. Skin with eczema may be dry, red, thickened, cracked, itchy or even broken.

Caroline Le Brun suffered with eczema on her hands for over 40 years. She tried our regime, and said: “The skin…began to generate and heal before my very eyes! I am total convinced of its healing properties and will strongly recommend it to anyone with this problem.”

What are the common symptoms of eczema?

How to tell what type of eczema you have:

  • If your skin is dry or itchy in patches, it may be ‘atopic eczema’
  • If your eczema seems to be caused by detergents or cleaning products, that’s ‘irritant contact eczema’
  • If your eczema reacts to substances such as perfumes, hair dye or nickel, then it’s ‘allergic contact eczema’
  • If your eczema reacts to yeast and is focused around your scalp, nose and eyebrows, it’s likely to be ‘seborrhoeic eczema’
  • If you’re older and your eczema affects your lower legs and ankles, it’s called ‘varicose eczema’
  • If you get disc-shaped patches of eczema, it’s ‘discoid eczema’ (this type is less common in babies)

What causes eczema?

Eczema usually flares up as a reaction to something, such as contact with a certain fabric, chemical or other irritant. As with many conditions, stress, hormones and food intolerances also play a part.

Who gets eczema?

Eczema can affect adults, children and babies.

Can eczema be cured or treated?

As yet, sadly, there’s no cure for eczema. Science will find a way, hopefully in the near future, but until then we are here to help ease the discomfort of eczema.

What is the best cure for eczema?

As stated there is no cure for eczema yet, however eczema sufferers should avoid any treatment that contains chemicals, as that may cause the condition to flare up. Our eczema skin care regime is 100% natural, with no chemicals that may cause an adverse reaction. Read on for full details…

2. Gently apply our Natural Natural Emollient Cream for Eczema

3. For extra protection outdoors, use our Moisturising Therapy Balm

  1. My wife has flares up of eczema over the years (and my 3-year-old may follow in her footsteps) I have watched her with it and know at times she has suffered horribly from it! It is never a good thing to continually itch.
