Your Questions About Eczema

Donna asks…

How can I be allergic to Tomatoes after all these years?

Ive recently ate my moms chile(5 days ago tuesday) and that night I got a skin rash. I didnt think it was severe until the following day when I had it all over my body. It would go away and then appear in a different part of my body. I researched and I think I got hives or eczema. Today I am cleared of any rashes but Im still taking pills that I got after visiting the doctor. My aunt cameover on friday( I barely had any rashes like about 4 that day) and made chicken with salsa(I know its not the chicken because my mom gave me chicken the day before and I didnt get any rashes at all and my mom and aunt had tomatoes on the chile so thats how I know it can be tomatoes)I wasnt sure If I should eat it but I ate it anyways. The morning after I woke up with more on my legs both an had like ten in each one. Thats when I finally assumed It was tomatoes But Im still not sure, how can I find out if it is tomatoes or what it is and how long can I NOT eat it for? And can I cure it?, but how?

p.s
My parents tell me its all in my mind and I think theyre right but is it? or should I just completely eliminate tomatoes from my meals.

Eating GMO grains are causing an increase in autoimmune diseases , like allergies , type 1 diabetes , and ciliac disease . You could never have had a sensitivity to a food in the nightshade family ( tomatoes ) but after years of eating kelloggs cereal for breakfast , all of a sudden you got allergies . GMOs were introduced in the late 80s . Since 1990 allergies in children are up 50 % . The august Elle magazine has a good article about GMO corn .

You might have Keratosis Pilaris.

There are several different types of keratosis pilaris:
1. Keratosis pilaris rubra: red, inflamed bumps
2. Keratosis pilaris Alba: rough, white, bumpy skin
3. Keratosis pilaris rubra faceii: reddish rash over the cheeks

There is currently no known cure for keratosis pilaris. However, there are effective treatments available that make its symptoms less apparent. The condition often improves with age and can even disappear completely in adulthood, though some will show signs of keratosis pilaris for life. Most of the available treatments are purely symptomatic; the one thing they all have in common is need for repetition and ongoing commitment. Some seeking treatment with the disorder may be prescribed Tretinoin or Triamcinolone cream, often by request.

Triamcinolone, most commonly sold under the trade name Aristocort, is a synthetic corticosteroid medically approved as an anti-inflammatory agent in the treatment of eczema, which also reduces the amount of keratin in pores. It may be of most help to those with keratosis pilaris by reducing red, inflamed bumps. Triamcinolone is typically applied three times a day.

Tretinoin, most commonly sold under the trade name Retin-A, is a topical retinoid medically approved in the treatment of acne. This medicine works by causing the outer layer of the skin to grow more rapidly, which decreases the amount of the protein keratin in the skin. As a result, the surface layer of the skin becomes thinner and pores are less likely to become blocked, reducing the occurrence of symptoms related to acne. As keratosis pilaris is manifested through excess keratin in the skin, Tretinoin forms a more effective and core approach to treatment than Triamcinolone, which forms a largely symptomatic approach. Tretinoin is typically applied once a day before bed.

An alternative treatment is Adapalene, a retinoid medication that is a more stable compound, is less sunlight-sensitive, has fewer general side-effects, and may be just as effective as Retin-A. Treatment of KP with Adapalene would be considered an “off-label” use of the medication.

As with Triamcinolone, Tretinoin or any other treatment, once therapy is discontinued, the condition reverts to its original state. However, skin treated with Tretinoin may take several weeks or more to revert to its pre-treatment condition, but may, at the same time, take several weeks or more to show optimal results, with the condition commonly worsening initially, as underlying keratin is brought to the surface of the skin. Tretinoin is considerably more expensive and dispensed in smaller quantities than Triamcinolone and other treatments. Although it may be the most effective treatment for keratosis pilaris, it is not considered the first line of treatment.

Keratosis pilaris has not been clinically researched for treatment in an unbiased manner, with all claims of success or improvement being purely marketed or anecdotal. The condition is often dismissed outright by practitioners as being presently untreatable, giving mere moisturizing suggestions or reassurance that the condition will improve or cease with age, typically after 30. General practitioners are often unable to identify the condition. Ignorance, accompanied with the price, availability, quantity dispensed, time taken for optimal results to be achieved, more serious side-effects, adverse reactions, and worsening of the condition in the initial treatment phase – coupled with the cheaper, safer, and easier availability of other treatments – has hindered Tretinoin from showing its potential in the treatment of this condition.

Exfoliation, intensive moisturizing cremes, lac-hydrin, creams, and lotions containing alpha hydroxy acids and urea may be used to temporarily improve the appearance and texture of affected skin.

Beta hydroxy acids may help improve the appearance and texture of the afflicted skin. Milk baths may provide some cosmetic improvement due to their containing lactic acid, a natural alpha hydroxy acid in milk. Sunlight may be helpful in moderation. Coconut oil may also be helpful if applied to afflicted areas while in the shower. Scratching and picking at KP bumps causes them to redden, and, in many cases, will cause bleeding. Excessive picking can lead to scarring. Wearing clothing that is looser around the affected areas can help reduce the marks, as constant chafing from clothing, such as tight-fitting jeans, is similar to repeatedly scratching the bumps.

How to get rid of eczema?

I get it badly on the top of my lip it all scabs up, my cheek, my chest, neck, arms and that. It’s not that bad but it really bothers me. It scabs up and when it’s on my face people stare at me and I really don’t like it.
I’ve been to the doctors and they just gave me a list of things to try like E45 aloe Vera and things like that. But the thing is everything they gave me a list of I’m allergic too.
I’ve found one cream that helps a little bit but not much. To go to a dermatologist is a lot and I don’t have a lot of money. The doctors are a waste of time as they keep doing the same thing.
Is there anything else I can try?

admin answers:

There are no cures for eczema, only managements. Here are a list of dos and don’ts:

Things not to do:-

Don’t use biological powders
Don’t use fabric softeners
Don’t use soap or detergents to wash with
Don’t use standard shower gels or bath additives

Things to do :-

Try Fairy Snow -the old fashioned powder
Use dryer balls
Use a soap free cleanser to wash hands etc.
Use a moisturising shower gel like Oilatum
Use a moisture bath additive like Aveeno
Use a good moisturiser like Aveeno
Use it very frequently, you can’t over-moisturise!
Use antihistamines for itch, a non sedative one like loratidine in the morning and a sedative one such piriton at night.
You may need to use steroids creams/ointments for flare up areas. Use the mildest you can, for the shortest time possible.

Sorry if you knew all of that already 🙁
