Let's Examine Eczema



Eczema is a skin condition that causes dry and itchy skin that can leak fluids when scratched.  The appearance of the skin most times is patchy, scaly or sometimes has bumps that become itchy.  This atopic dermatitis deals not only with your skin but with you immune system brings with it an allergenic and inflammatory reaction.  It has been discovered that people with Eczema:
  • Their skin's defense system is altered, so that water is released and allergens are allowed in from the environment
  • The skin has very little antimicrobial which is natural and protects the skin from poisonous toxics infections
  • A protein called claudin-1 is weakened, where the skin cells become leaky and open to the environmental allergens and infectious elements.
  • Omega-3 helps to normalize your skin from dehydration and keeps it full of moisture which help reduce the appearance of fine lines.
