What Are the Most Common Treatments for Eczema?

Usually steroid creams such as hydrocortisone, betamethasone, or ectosone are commonly prescribed. As of late, a new generation of steroids have come out for treating such skin problems but they come with hefty warnings from the FDA.

Why are cortisone creams bad?

One must always remember that the skin is the largest organ of the body. It is living, breathing, absorbing, respiring and manifesting appearances of internal disorders. We should be very conscious of the things we place on the surface as they are not staying there for long. The body is metabolizing their components as soon as they are applied. Do you feel comfortable with the fact that your body is absorbing steroids? Or your small child? Or absorbing a cream where the mechanisms of their actions are not even known?

What are the side effects of cortisone creams?

Many people react to absorption into the bloodstream. Skin thinning, de-pigmentation and a suppressed immune system are also various side effects.

How do I know that I am suffering from Eczema or that my child is?

If you are suffering from any sort of skin rash or discomfort, we strongly recommend you see your healthcare provider to get a proper diagnosis.

What else can I do besides using the DermCare System to help my skin heal?

Minimize exposure to all soaps and detergents. Use soap only where you really need it (ie. armpits, groin, etc.) Do not take bubble baths or immerse yourself in any sort of bath soaks, etc. Limit showers to about 10 minutes, wash your hair upside down to prevent the shampoos from running down your body and leaving residue. Avoid sodium lauryl and laureth sulfates. Avoid any products with lanolin. Try to avoid wearing very tight clothing. If dealing with detergents all day, always wear gloves. These are just simple steps to try. As for little kids, one of the worst things you can do is bathe your child every day. Do not put them in those baths or soaks, they are not like dirty dishes. Just wash their diaper areas. Many of those baths are linked to irritation in the children's genitals and exacerbating eczema. Avoid baby oil as it commonly contains lanolin, an ingredient many children and adults are sensitive to. Baby shampoo can also be irritating, try to find a natural one without sodium lauryl and laureth sulfates. DermCare Cleanser and Lotion can be used safely on baby's skin. And most importantly, watching your child's diet and exposure to allergans like pets is first and foremost. If your child's eczema is in the diaper region, changing the diaper more often and using a zinc based cream usually works the best. DermCare Cream is also a very thick, nourishing cream that can be substituted for a diaper cream.
