Thank you for asking HealthReplies.com.
Eczema is another term for atopic dermatitis, which is a disorder that makes the skin red and itchy. This condition usually occurs repeatedly over a long period of time, and can get worse over time. Atopic dermatitis sufferers often also experience other diseases associated with atopic tendencies, such as asthma or allergic rhinitis (inflammation of the nasal mucosa).
Atopic dermatitis occurs when the skin's protective mechanisms that are supposed to moisturize and ward off infection, irritation, and allergies are disrupted. This condition is closely related to genetic factors (heredity). Symptoms of atopic dermatitis can vary, ranging from dry, itchy, red, thickened, peeling, scaly, swollen, and more sensitive skin, for example to pressure, scratching, and so on. This condition is more common in children, although it does not rule out it also occurs at all ages.
Atopic dermatitis is not really a dangerous or life threatening condition. However, if relapses continue and recur, the sufferer's quality of life can be greatly reduced due to this disease. Therefore, you need to see a specialist in skin and genitals directly. Although there is no special treatment available to cure atopic dermatitis, the doctor can provide you with treatments that can improve your skin condition so that you can carry out normal activities without significant problems. The treatment that is given later is usually in the form of topical drugs (for example, moisturizing creams, anti-inflammatory, antibiotics), oral medication, injection drugs, or also other therapies, such as light therapy, counseling, behavior modification, and so on.
The following treatments you can take to help prevent recurrence as well as relieve symptoms of atopic derma:
Bathing with lukewarm water, you can also add oatmeal or baking soda, do not rub the skin excessively when bathing or using a towel
Keep your skin moisturised by using a moisturizer that is suitable for your skin type
Apply an anti-itch lotion (usually one containing calamine) to make your skin feel more comfortable
Choose clothes that are soft, absorb sweat, and not tight
Don't scratch itchy skin
Wash your hands and trim your nails regularly
Stay away from excessive stress and anxiety
Avoid all triggers that often make your complaint worse
Hope it helps ..
