Pictures of Eczema
Pictures of eczema and psoriasis may look similar, but they are not the same disease. Eczema symptoms are much different and will vary due to a variety of causes and types. But regardless of the symptoms, there is no question that eczema is an uncomfortable, embarrassing and sometimes painful condition.
One question everyone asks - Is there an Eczema cure? Unfortunately, no. But it is possible to take control and reduce eczema skin symptoms. While some over-the-counter products may not work, others are pretty effective. It really depends upon the person and how bad their symptoms are. One thing is important, make sure the product is specifically formulated for the eczema condition.
Below are some common pictures of eczema and eczema rashes.

This recurring skin condition - also known as Atopic dermatitis - if often characterized by an itchy rash and dry, red flaking skin. Eczema can occur on any part of the body and it's thought that it's brought on by allergies. The worst is when you see eczema symptoms in an infant!
Eczema skin symptoms usually start out as small red patches or flaky patches which almost always itch and sting. These patches can be found on the hands, legs, neck and face. In children, eczema patches usually appear on the elbows and in the creases of the knees and arms.
Causes of Eczema
Nobody is really sure what causes eczema and why some people develop it and others don’t. Many health care professionals believe that eczema symptoms stem from an overactive immune system and are further aggravated by environmental toxins or stress. The most common causes of eczema flare-ups are:
- chemical irritants such as harsh soaps and detergents, perfume, astringents, and pesticides
- changes in humidity or temperature
- irritants like fabrics that are scratchy like wool
- emotional or physical stress
At this time, nobody has discovered a permanent eczema cure, but there are some home remedies for eczema that can help reduce flare-ups.
The most important factors for reducing eczema symptoms is to keep the skin moist. Letting it get too dry causes more irritation and cracks. Also, try to use natural products, soaps, and washes and reduce the use of chemically laden products as much as possible.
Some people have even switched to fragrance free detergents and laundry soaps. While there is no guarantee this will reduce your symptoms, it certainly can't and has helped quite a few people.......especially when you don't know what the cause is.
Home Remedies for Eczema
There are a few over the counter eczema treatments that I have come across after years of researching. The most impressive one is the ability of omega 3 fish oil to help relief eczema symptoms. One recent study found that high doses of fish oil (5.5 grams of DHA) significantly improved symptoms of atopic eczema after only 8 weeks.
In another impressive double-blind study, 1.8 grams of EPA was feed to a group of eczema suffers for 12 weeks. Subjects reported significant improvement in symptoms. Researchers believe that large doses of fish oil may help relieve symptoms because it plays an important role in reducing inflammation.
Another supplement to consider is vitamin E. It helps encourage skin healing from the inside and keeps the skin moist and hydrated.
In addition to the home remedies for eczema listed above, you might wish to consider a daily routine that can help you heal and keep the area moist. An atopic dermatitis treatment that you can use daily for more healthier skin.
As a research consultant for over 25 years, I make every effort to find solutions for a variety of skin problems, especially eczema and I am very impressed with this exceptional eczema formulated system.
