Eczema is a condition characterized by an inflammatory response of the skin causing redness, itching, blisters, weeping, oozing, and crusting. It is a common allergic reaction in children but also effects adults. It is thought that family history, food sensitivities and a lack of essential fatty acids in the diet contribute to the development of this condition. Many people supplement with flax seed (high in fatty acids). Many dermatologists find eczema (as well as psoriasis) a very frustrating disease to treat.
Emu oil is extremely effective in relieving the symptoms of eczema, especially in children, and is safe to use on premature babies and by women who are or may become pregnant.
Factors that can exacerbate the disease:
-Irritants - Environmental factors such as regular contact with soaps, solvents, and other drying substances. Constant hand washing or regular contact with dirt, paper, or irritating chemicals.
-Allergens - In the air and in food often trigger a flare-up. Management of atopic dermatitis (eczema) can include dietary restriction of eggs, cow's milk, soy, wheat, nuts and fish.
-Infections - Bacterial, fungal or viral infections may cause a flare-up of eczema.
Topical corticosteroids (cortisone) are the drugs of choice for treating eczema. The risks associated with prolonged use of a potent corticosteroid may result in skin deterioration (skin becomes thinner) and adaptation (that means it stops having an effect on the skin). Other risks involve toxicity to the liver and heart problems.
Emu oil's deep penetrating action helps to rehydrate skin faster and more effectively than any other type of natural topical application. Emu oil aids in rapid cell regeneration, reduces inflammation and is hypo-allergenic.
