Eczema symptoms are annoying at best and can be serious at worst. The most common eczema skin symptom is itchy, flaky skin.
This is a very frustrating skin disorder because there are so many different symptoms of eczema with many different causes.
In the beginning symptoms appear as a common rash and then can progress into thick scaly patches that are discolored, swollen, dry, and hot.
The symptoms of eczema usually appear on the scalp, face, neck, and hands. In children, it can show up in the elbows, scalp, and creases of the arms and back of the knees.
In more severe cases there may be skin infection with pus filled blisters that ooze. Sometimes a brown, yellow crust forms over the blister.
If you start experiencing these symptoms, you should contact your doctor or dermatologist immediately. This type of condition may require treatments with antibiotics to prevent infection.
The most important thing to reduce the chances of infection is to treat the symptoms before they get worse….especially to reduce the itching which can damage the skin and cause infection.
A few things you can do to help reduce the symptoms of eczema is to try some natural remedies, like:
Another option that has worked well for many are homeopathic treatments. Native Remedies offers a whole line of homeopathic skin, nails and hair treatments.
