In the Ayurvedic aspect, eczema is viewed as not just a single skin condition; but as many skin conditions that affect the epidermis and coupe up to form one disease. The resultant disease manifests itself in the form of extreme dryness and excessive itching of the skin; since the epidermis is the outer layer of the skin; you can actually see the effect of eczema with your bare eyes. In the modern aspect; eczema can be called atopic dermatitis. It is believed to be some alternative form of the disease dermatitis. A short definition would be that eczema is a skin inflammatory disease affecting the epidermis. So both concepts agree whereby they state that eczema affects the outer layer of the skin.
A feeling of itchiness
A rash appearing in many parts of the body; mostly the back of the knees and the front of the elbows
Drying of the skin; giving off a scaly look
A change in the skin’s pigmentation on affected areas; hence looking either lighter or darker depending on the complexion
The skin that’s affected may also begin to red and then soon after turn brown
The affected skin may begin to ooze liquid puss
The skin on the affected areas may crack or form blisters
Irritation to the skin hence leading to an exaggerated response by the alert immune system of the body
Genetic causes; eczema can also be hereditary in a family and therefore passed down from parents and grandparents to their children and grandchildren
If in case the barrier of the skin is defected in any way; this could be a cause of germs going into the skin layer and moisture moving out fast
Exposure to harsh conditions; like hotness and coldness, rubbing against rough surfaces and harsh washing and cleaning detergents
Depression and stress
Allergies and leaving the skin dry all the time
Contact dermatitis which can be divided further into irritant contact dermatitis and allergy contact dermatitis and are both brought about by damages to the skin due to harsh substances and conditions
Atopic dermatitis is the commonest type affecting those with hereditary causes, skin barrier defects and chronic diseases such as asthma that attack the respiratory system on the upper side
A diagnosis can be given surely only by a doctor; either general or dermatologist. The doctor will take a look at the symptoms of eczema that your skin has shown and then will ask you about your history both medically and family-wise. This will help the doctor to determine the cause of the disease and diagnose you with eczema. Only after the diagnosis can the treatment and management begin. Eczema has no cure; just methods of better managing the condition.
