Eczema is a chronic problem for many people. It is most common in infants, many of whom outgrow it before adulthood.
Children and adults tend to have eczema on the neck, wrists, and ankles, and in areas that bend, like the inner elbow and knee. People with eczema are usually diagnosed with it when they are babies or young children. Eczema symptoms often become less severe as children grow into adults. For some people, eczema continues into adulthood. Less often, it can start in adulthood. The rash of eczema is different for each person. It may even look different or affect different parts of your body from time to time. It can be mild, moderate, or severe. Generally, people with eczema suffer from dry, sensitive skin. Eczema is also known for its intense itch. The itch may be so bad that you scratch your skin until it bleeds, which can make your rash even worse, leading to even more inflammation and itching.This is called the itch-scratch cycle.
Atopic dermatitis– This condition has a genetic basis and is probably most commonly called eczema. Atopic dermatitis tends to begin early in life in those with a predisposition to inhalant allergies, but it probably does not have an allergic basis. Characteristically, rashes occur on the cheeks, neck, elbow and knee creases, and ankles. Rarely, a few those with atopic dermatitis can get an extensive herpes simplex infection called “eczema herpeticum.”
Irritant dermatitis–This occurs when the skin is repeatedly exposed to toxic substances.
Allergic contact dermatitis– After repeated exposures to the same substance, the body’s immune recognition system becomes activated at the site of the next exposure and produces eczema.
Stasis dermatitis– It commonly occurs on the swollen lower legs of people who have poor circulation in the veins of the legs.
Fungal infections– This can produce a pattern identical to many other types of eczema, but the fungus can be visualized with a scraping under the microscope or grown in culture.
Scabies– It’s caused by an infestation by the human itch mite and may produce a rash very similar to other forms of eczema.
Pompholyx (Dyshidrotic Eczema)- This is a common but poorly understood condition which classically affects the hands and occasionally the feet by producing an itchy rash composed of tiny blisters (vesicles) on the sides of the fingers or toes and palms or soles.
Lichen simplex Chronicus– It produces thickened plaques of skin commonly found on the shins and neck.
Nummular eczema– This is a nonspecific term for coin-shaped plaques of scaling skin most often on the lower legs of older individuals.
Xerotic (dry skin) eczema- When the skin becomes pathologically dry, it will crack and ooze.
Seborrhoeic eczema– It produces a rash on the scalp, face, ears, and occasionally the mid-chest in adults. In infants, in can produce a weepy, oozy rash behind the ears and can be quite extensive, involving the entire body.
It is unknown for certain what specifically causes eczema, but it is believed to result due to a combination of hereditary and environmental factors.
An OVERACTIVE IMMUNE SYSTEM is thought to be a factor, as well. Also, it’s thought that defects in the skin barrier contribute to eczema. These defects can allow moisture out through the skin and let germs in.
Contact with irritating substances such as woolen and synthetic fabrics and soap
Heat and sweat
Cold, dry climates
Foods, dust mites, and other allergy triggers
SIGNS AND SYMPTOMS
Itching– The itching can be intense. The damage to the skin during eczema is often due to scratching.
Scaling– The surface of the skin can flake off, giving the skin a rough, scaly appearance.
Redness– The affected skin may bleed and appear blotchy.
Fluid-filled blisters– These can ooze and form crusts.
Cracking– Severely affected skin may develop painful, deep cracks, also called fissures.
Patches of chronically itchy, dry, thickened skin, usually on the hands, neck, face, and legs (but it can occur anywhere). In children, the inner creases of the knees and elbows are often involved. If scratched, dry patches of skin and open sores with crusts may develop and may get infected.
Depending on the cause, eczema may flare up and cause severe symptoms. But it can also become a chronic problem with less intense symptoms.=
HOW SALT ROOM THERAPY WORKS
Salt Room Therapy is a 100% natural and scientific therapy that is very effective in the treatment of Eczema.
Based on clinical studies, it has been proven that the salty air has bactericidal, anti-inflammatory properties. Sodium chloride particles (dry salt aerosol) has a very beneficial influence on the skin areas it comes into contact with. Salt aerosol increases the activity of skin cells and activates electrophysiological activity that determines skin protective properties. Research of skin micro-biocenosis showed normalization of superficial autoflora composition after administering salt therapy. Bacteriostatic and anti- inflammatory effect of dry superfine sodium chloride aerosol was confirmed. Salt aerosol microcrystals effect results in Ph normalization and induction of reparative- regenerative processes in derma, increases skin turgor, stimulates growth. Dry salt aerosol takes beneficial effect on skin microcirculation. Increases permeability and electrophysiological activity of the cellular membrane, dry salt aerosol helps in penetration of various remedies, used in dermatology and cosmetology and potentate their effectiveness.
By the end of the positive dynamics has been observed in 65-75% patients with atopic dermatitis. It resulted in decreasing of itching, solution or reduction of lichenification, drying of small fissures, scratches, reducing of sympathicotonia symptoms.
Improvement of local microcirculation, edema reduction and clearance under the influence of halo-aerosol may be efficiently applied in curative cellulite programs. By its treating effect on respiratory tract sodium chloride aerosol provides concurrent detoxification and lymphatic-drainage influence and as a result the general health improves (including sensitization reduction). These effects contribute to skin clearance, recovery of protective properties, improvement of skin tone and turgor. (This phenomenon can be strictly shown in women who have given up smoking).
