ECZEMA is considered to be hereditary. Studies reveal that a person is prone to ECZEMA if his family has a history of closely linked conditions like hay fever and asthma. Irritants like smoke, chemicals, detergents, solvents and so on, can aggravate ECZEMA. Even weather conditions can lead to aggravation of the condition.

HOMEOPATHIC TREATMENT FOR ECZEMA, ALLERGIC DERMATITIS homeopathy offers very good treatment for ECZEMA, but the approach used by homeopaths is very different from that of conventional treatment. Homeopaths usually do not give anything to apply topically. Instead they try to remove the basic disposition/sensitivity to develop such a lesion using internal medicine. This approach not only successfully removes the ECZEMA but also removes the possibility of development ofother hypersensitivity disorders like asthma after the ECZEMA is cured. To find the proper remedy a homeopath collects all the past medical history of the person, his/her family history, his/her physical and psychological characteristics etc. All this information helps the homeopath to find a remedy which not only will remove the ECZEMA but will also remove the disposition to acquire such diseases. As a note of caution I would like to add here that after a proper remedy is given the ECZEMA may occasionally (not often) show a mild flare up. This should not worry the patientas it is often considered a good prognostic sign by homeopaths. But which medicine will work in a particular case can only be judged by a trained homeopath.
