Collection: Eczema

Eczema is a common condition that causes patches of skin to breakout in itchy, reddish or brown rashes. How this condition looks and feels can vary significantly depending on the individual. In most cases, the skin will look and feel dry with small red bumps appearing in clusters. These bumps can leak fluid and scab over when they’ve been scratched. In other cases, the skin may be cracked and have a scaly feeling. Eczema occurs more frequently in children but isn’t uncommon at any age.

The itchiness of eczema is a major source of discomfort among sufferers. This can become quite severe overnight. Scratching, even while sleeping, can exacerbate the problem – resulting in open sores and the potential for infections. The itchiness, and trying not to scratch, can be very distracting during the day and can make falling asleep difficult at night. Depending on the site of the breakout, eczema sufferers can, understandably, become self-conscious of the appearance.

There are a number of factors that can cause an outbreak. Certain fabrics and sweat can spur them on, as well as things like soaps, perfumes, lotions, and laundry detergents that happen to irritate the skin. Stress is another trigger. No one knows exactly why this causes flare ups, but many people report this correlation.

Fortunately, there are homeopathic medicines for eczema. An organic product like Calcarea-Carbonica-30c or Sulphur-30c, both available from Olloïs, can help soothe the itchiness and reduce the inflammation. This can help make your outbreak much less distracting and easier to manage. The treatments may also help reduce the time it takes for the flare ups to go away.
