Eczema Ayurvedic treatment includes several types of therapies including body detox with Panchkarma, application of herbal pastes and administration of oral herbal medications. Overall Ayurvedic treatment for Eczema focuses on clearing the skin lesions as well as reducing the body toxins that could be responsible for inflammation in the body.

What is Eczema?

Dermatitis or Eczema is an inflammation of the skin. The term Eczema is broadly applied to a range of persistent skin rashes. These include dryness and recurring skin rashes that typically cause redness, skin swelling, itching, crusting, flaking, blistering, cracking, oozing, or bleeding. Areas of temporary skin discoloration may appear and are sometimes due to healed injuries.

What Are The Types of Dermatitis Or Eczema?

There are several types of dermatitis such as atopic dermatitis, contact dermatitis, seborrhoeic dermatitis and xerotic dermatitis. Each type has specific symptoms; however, there are certain signs that are common for all of them, including redness of the skin, swelling, itching and skin lesions with sometimes oozing and scarring.

1. Atopic Dermatitis

This is an allergic disease believed to have a hereditary component, and often runs in families. Itchy rash is particularly noticeable on head and scalp, neck, inside of elbows, behind knees, and buttocks.

2. Contact Dermatitis

Contact dermatitis can be of two types, allergic or Irritant. Allergic dermatitis results from a delayed reaction to an allergen, such as poison ivy, nickel, or Balsam of Peru. Irritant dermatitis results from direct reaction to a detergent, such as sodium lauryl sulphate.

3. Xerotic Eczema

Caused due to excessive dryness to skin, xerotic Eczema worsens in dry winter weather. It mainly affects limbs and trunks. The itchy, tender skin resembles a dry, cracked, river bed. This disorder is very common among the older population.

4. Seborrhoeic Dermatitis

A condition sometimes classified as a form of Eczema that is closely related to dandruff. It causes dry or greasy peeling of the scalp, eyebrows, and face, and sometimes trunk. The condition is harmless except in severe cases of cradle cap. In newborns it causes a thick, yellow, crusty scalp rash called cradle cap, which seems related to lack of biotin and is often curable.

Signs and Symptoms of Eczema

Dermatitis symptoms vary with all different forms of the condition. They range from skin rashes to bumpy rashes or including blisters. Also, the area of the skin on which the symptoms appear tends to be different with every type of dermatitis, whether on the neck, wrist, forearm, thigh or ankle. Although the location may vary, the primary symptom of this condition is itchy skin. Every type of dermatitis has some specific symptoms; however there are certain signs that are common for all of them.
