Which Foods Cause Eczema? Eliminate Foods You Are
Allergic to and Cure Your Eczema Forever by Barbora Barnard
- Atopic eczema: This type of eczema runs in families and these families may
also suffer with asthma and hay fever. The eczema tends to be triggered by
allergens in what we eat or products that we use and it seems to be long
lasting. It mostly affects babies and young children, but adults can suffer with it
- Contact eczema: Skin comes into contact with an allergen and this will
produce a local reaction - itchy skin in that particular place.
- Seborrheic eczema: Mainly affects the scalp, but can also appear on the face
and neck, it is sometimes called cradle cap in children and dandruff in adults.
- Gravitational (varicose or stasis) eczema: It is most common in older
women, especially if you have poor circulation, varicose veins or have had a
blood clot and it affects the lower legs.
- Dyshidrotic (pompholyx) eczema: Itchy blisters that affect hands and feet.
- Nummular (discoid) eczema: Itchy coin shaped discs that appear on arms,
trunk and legs and tend to become crusty and infected.
- Asteaotic Eczema: Nearly always affects people over 60, mainly appears on
the shins and looks like crazy paving.
Causes of Eczema
Scientists believe that it is related to an overactive response of our immune system
to an irritant. There are various triggers, which can start the vicious itch- scratch
cycle in susceptible people. These triggers include dust, pollen,chemicals,cosmetics,
climate changes, synthetic fibres and last but not least food allergies/ intolerances.
Doctors currently believe there is no cure for eczema, that it can only be managed.
By that they mean mainly moisturising routines and the use of steroid creams to
clear up flare-ups. But read on and you'll see that I believe there are other options.
Food Allergies/ Intolerances and Eczema
As I said earlier, this condition affects a big percentage of the population not just in
the UK, but worldwide and the problem seems to be getting bigger. My son had
severe eczema when he was little and his was partially caused by food allergies. It
took me two years to cure his eczema, but it was well worth it. The time, when his
eczema was at its most severe, must have been one of the most difficult times of
my life. The constant itch- scratch cycle, the never ending moisturising routines, the
sleepless nights, etc... It really made our lives truly miserable.
I Know How You Feel
I also used to suffer with eczema, so I really do know how you feel, as I've had
plenty of personal experience. But the truth of the matter is that you don't need to
keep on suffering. It is possible to take your health into your own hands and really
start helping yourself towards a much happier and healthier eczema free life.
Which Foods Cause Eczema
If you think your eczema is caused by food allergies, there is a number of things you
can do. First, you need to eliminate the foods, then you need to replace them with a
simple healthy wholesome diet with plenty of fresh fruit and vegetables, include a
high quality vitamin/mineral formula, make sure you get lots of sleep and exercise
and try not get stressed!
I hope this is useful and good luck with your eczema.
