Eczema is a condition where patches of skin become inflamed, itchy, red, cracked, and rough. It is the most common form of inflammation of the skin (dermatitis). So what exactly is eczema? And what should you do, now that you or your child has been diagnosed
The most important thing to remember is that eczema and its symptoms are different for everyone. Your eczema may not look the same on you as it does on another adult, or on your child. It may even appear in different areas of the body at different times.What to look for:
Eczema is the name for a group of conditions that cause the skin to become red, itchy and inflamed. There are several types of eczema:
Eczema is very common. And in many cases, it’s also manageable. In fact, over 30 million Americans have some form of eczema.
Living with eczema can be an ongoing challenge. The word “eczema” is derived from a Greek word meaning “to boil over,” which is a good description for the red, inflamed, itchy patches that occur during flare-ups. Eczema can range from mild, moderate, to severe.
It’s most common for babies and children to develop eczema on their face (especially the cheeks and chin), but it can appear anywhere on the body and symptoms may be different from one child to the next. More often than not, eczema goes away as a child grows older, though some children will continue to experience eczema into adulthood. Adults can develop eczema, too, even if they never had it as a child.
According to Ayurveda, eczema or vicharchika can be primarily attributed to a poor diet and lifestyle which impairs digestion and aggravates Pitta dosha (biohumor representing Fire and Water). Pitta shows up in the skin as blisters and breakouts due to the accumulation of internally heating toxins called ama . When these toxins enter the deeper layers of the bodily tissues they contaminate them to cause this condition.
However, eczema may also be caused due to an imbalance of the other doshas. Here is a look at the different manifestations of the condition based on the dosha that is aggravated.
Vata dosha: This eczema is characterized by extreme dryness, scaling, itching and lots of pain and throbbing.
Pitta dosha: Pitta-type eczema shows up as red, blistery, bleeding, burning sensation and infections. Pitta people may be susceptible to seborrheic and contact dermatitis due to excess heat, particularly inthe armpits and on the scalp.
Kapha dosha: Kaphic eczema itches, oozes and causes thickening of the skin. Kapha individuals may be prone to seborrheic eczema, especially in between rolls of fats as well as other moist sweaty areas.
Tridoshic eczema may show symptoms of all three types of eczema. This is commonly seen in most chronic cases.
