Eczema is a common skin condition that affects people of all ages. It is caused by the skin’s sensitivity to different substances in our daily lives. The result is a chronic skin condition characterised by inflamed, red, itchy skin. Things like dust, soap, perfumes, and even some foods can trigger this unpleasant skin condition.
Homeopathy aims to cure eczema by strengthening the immune system and reducing the body’s reaction to triggering substances. Along with prescribed treatments, there are several natural remedies like coconut oil, chamomile tea, and oatmeal baths that can be used at home to temporarily ease eczema symptoms.
