October is Eczema Awareness Month

eczema awareness monthWe’ve recently had eczema awareness week and now we have eczema awareness month which gives us much more time to raise awareness for this dreadful skin complaint that is not contagious and not curable.

All through the month of October the National Eczema Association is working hard to raise awareness about Eczema with various activities and publicity. You too can help, let us show that we care!

Spreading the Word

The aim for eczema awareness month is to spread the word as far and wide as possible so that one day it might be possible to find a cure.

What is Eczema Anyway?

Well, I’m glad you asked…  Eczema is an inflammation of the skin which is extremely itchy and uncomfortable. The word eczema actually is one of those ancient Greek words which means “to boil over” which exactly is how your skin feels when you suffer with eczema.

The skin has a red, itchy rash and gets worse if scratched. There are varying degrees of eczema from Acute to Infected – where some get pus filled blisters that weep and some that just get raised lumps or thickened very dry skin.

As we’ve said before eczema is NOT contagious, it can be that you were just unlucky that your parents had eczema and so it’s likely that you will. Some people seem to get for no reason at all and others are triggered by irritants, or many other reasons.

How You Can Help During Eczema Awareness Month

The National Eczema Awareness has a long list of suggestions on how you can help to raise awareness for eczema…

You can increase awareness by creating discussions at school or even holding school assemblies. Or by contacting your local TV and radio and sharing your stories.

Maybe hold some fundraisers, such as family fun days, car washing or bike rides.

What is the Best Eczema Treatment

There are many different types of eczema treatment out there and no skin is the same, everyone’s skin does react differently to different treatments.  Some don’t work at all, some seem to work for a few months.

However at Syrinx Za Natural Skincare we have had some extremely good results with our clinical testing where 80% of eczema sufferers reported improvements in their skin.  Well, we don’t want to blow our own trumpet but we are very pleased with our results and just glad that we can help people by treating their eczema and so making their lives a little better.

So, lets get out there this month and spread the word about Eczema and Eczema Awareness Month.
