You have eczema on your stomach and its turning your belly black how can you get it back to normal?
Treating eczema should be done with diet. Most people who suffer from eczema usually are allergic to something in their environment or the food they eat. The key is to figure out what is causing your eczema in the first place. I suggest you keep a diary whenever you have flare-ups and take notes about what you were doing or eating at the time preceding the flare-up. Also, there is the paleo diet which many believe will not only cure your problem (via diet) but also has some beneficial things in regards to arthritis and other ailments.
Treating Eczema Effectively?
Eczema Basics Eczema is a rash-like skin condition that typically occurs on the face, arms and legs, but can break out on any part of the body. It is characterized by inflammation, redness, itching and dry skin. In severe cases, sores can crack, bleed, blister and ooze. The most common form of eczema is atopic dermatitis, which is an inherited condition. Eczema outbreaks are often caused by allergic reactions, certain fabrics, soap and other skin cleaners, over-bathing, dry skin, sweating and hot conditions. The most appropriate eczema treatment depends on the severity of the outbreak. Basic Eczema Treatment Good skin care can prevent eczema outbreaks and treat mild cases of the disease. Skin should be moisturized with hydrating creams and ointments, particularly oil-based creams. Eczema suffers should take very short, warm baths and should apply moisturizer immediately after bathing to hydrate their skin. Moisturizing cream should be applied even before toweling dry. Within a few days, the eczema outbreak should subside. Treatment for Mild to Moderate Eczema Physicians normally recommend nonprescription hydrocortisone creams for mild cases of eczema in addition to a skin moisturizing regimen. Moderate eczema can be treated with a stronger prescription strength steroid-based corticosteroid cream which will help control skin inflammation. Physicians also sometimes prescribe an oral antihistamine to combat severe itching. Treatment for Acute Eczema More severe cases of eczema may first be treated with oral corticosteroid medications. These medications are for short-term use only because of their undesirable side effects. An immune system suppressing drug, cyclosporine, is also sometimes prescribed for a short period of time to combat eczema. Suppressing the immune system can often help lessen the severity of an eczema outbreak. Ultraviolet light therapy is also used sometimes to treat more severe cases of eczema. Physicians sometimes treat very severe cases of eczema with immune suppressant topical creams such as Elidel and Protopic. These drugs should only be used after other treatments have failed as the FDA has warned of possible severe adverse effects from the use of these drugs. They should only be used for a short period of time and should never by used on children under the age of two.
