Rashes and Eczema

Eczema is a chronic condition that recurs, or becomes periodically ‘inflamed’, and technically cannot be cured but can be managed. Its cause is unknown, but is related to an abnormal response in the immune system. Dry, red, itchy patches anywhere on the skin characterize the condition. Eczema is a general term for a variety of inflamed skin conditions, one of the most common of which is atopic dermatitis. It is often treated with topical medicine (steroids) by a dermatologist. A consultation with our esthetician or Chinese medical practitioner for an appropriate treatment plan is also a viable option for management using holistic medicine. Since eczema is sensitive to certain triggers, part of the practitioner’s care will be education about how an individual may avoid these triggers .

Rashes  are symptoms of other systemic problems and may result from eczema or any number of factors, ranging from allergies to sunburn. A bothersome rash should always be checked by the doctor.
