Eczema a Painful Skin Condition

Eczema a Painful Skin Condition
For many years I have suffered with eczema I must have inherited from my dad. This is a skin condition that can make my skin dry, red and itch like crazy. No one knew I had a problem unless I would get lazy and stop applying a very greasy prescription ointment called Triamcinolone Acetonide. My face either looked red, or greasy most of the time.

Eczema is any inflammation of the layers of skin that results in itching, redness and pain, sometimes blistering occurs. The term ‘eczema’ is used in two different ways. It can be used to describe any rash -like skin conditions It is usually used specifically to refer to the most common type of these skin conditions: atopic dermatitis.

Atopic dermatitis is a chronic skin condition that commonly starts during infancy and continues through into childhood. Some people outgrow the condition while some people will continue to have it when they are adults.

The word ‘atopic’ refers to a collection of diseases for which there is an inherited tendency to develop, including dermatitis, asthma and hay fever. ‘Dermatitis’ means inflammation of the skin.

I had resigned myself to years of itching, burning, and greasy messes. Even with my knowledge of essential oils I didn’t think it was possible to escape what I thought was an obvious fate of sore, itchy, red, skin. For the rest of the story Click Here.
