What Is Eczema?
Eczema, put very simply, is an inflammation of the skin. Also known as Atopic Dermatitis. It usually develops in childhood and is usually genetic. The first symptom is a rash that shows on the arms and behind the knees, but can appear anywhere on the body. It can get really frustrating and particularly painful for young children who cannot help but scratch the affected area.
Causes and Treatment
The specific cause of eczema is still unknown but doctors believe that it is a combination of genetics and environmental factors. Some common factors include household irritants like soaps and cleaners, allergens like dust, microbes, such as fungus and bacteria, weather changes, specific foods like dairy, hormones and also stress.
Terrible Eczema Since Birth
“My mother has just arrived from the USA and she brought me a bottle of Gloves In A Bottle. I have had terrible eczema since birth and now at 23 I still struggle with it. When I first looked at the bottle I just said to myself “Another bottle from people trying to market a useless product that will make my skin worse”. She has not been here for a week and I started using the product yesterday morning.
The results were amazing!! Apparently I had been handling detergents and my skin had reacted but if I tell you those ugly scales are disappearing so fast I can’t even believe it. I applied it again last night and this morning its like evolution. My hand looks better. I have never seen a product that works so well. I want to recommend it to anyone who is having trouble with dry skin or eczema. This is beautiful you guys. Keep it up.”
