Basically there is inflammation of the epidermal layer of the skin which develops into a skin rash. Also know as Dermatitis, Eczema or Dermatitis is very common, some sources are of the view that half the world population will have it at one time or another. It often develops as infantile or baby Eczema which frequently diminishes but may continue to adulthood.

Eczema affects probably 15-25% of the world population and is becoming more common for reasons unknown. The frequency may vary throughout the world. Eczema is easily recognized by the dermatologist.

Few forms of eczema can be triggered by substances that come in contact with the skin in day to day life, such as soaps, cosmetics, clothing, detergents, jewelry, or sweat. Few substances in the environment can act like allergens (substances that cause allergic reactions, like pollens, fur, lead etc) may also cause outbreaks of eczema.

Auroh Homoeopathic treatment for Eczema

At AUROH we emphasizes that Eczema is not an external but an internal malady, arising out of faulty immune system with genetic predispositions. Needless to say the disease is deep seated and calls for well planned deep acting medicines. Conventional treatment with steroid or other topical applications can suppress (that is what they call �manage�) the symptoms of the disease but cannot cure the disease. On the other hand, it is homoeopathy that has potential to stimulate body�s natural healing capacity and to restore the disturbed immune system

In homeopathy, eczema has been considered, understood and treated as an external manifestation of an internal disorder. In other words, eczema is a result of a reactive process of the skin, which may be caused by external or internal factors. Eczema is more of an end result and not a disease by itself. The characteristic reaction shows up at the level of skin in the form of eczematous rash. Any attempt to treat eczema with local application of creams or ointments on the skin, assuming that it is a skin-deep disease, may prove ineffective in the long run. Eczema needs to be tackled at a deeper level in order to treat it from the roots. This is best done with the homeopathic treatment
