Enzymes and Eczema
Enzymes and eczema ….. Most cases of eczema or atopic dermatitis begin in infancy. Around 60 percent of children with eczema will develop it before their first birthday. Eczema is most common in children whose family has a history of allergies, asthma or sinus infections.
Eczema is an inflammation of the skin and it causes chapping and intense itching. If scratched too hard the rash will ooze and become infected.
The cause of eczema hasn’t been established in mainstream medicine. Conventional therapy only results in temporary relief. Among those with eczema there appears to be a distinct pattern of food sensitivities. The most common offenders are eggs, milk and peanuts. Sugars, soy, tomatoes, wheat, meats, chocolate, citrus fruits, fats and food additives can also cause problems. Other factors can set the stage for eczema, which can be emotional trauma, low thyroid hormone and liver toxicity.
A full spectrum digestive enzyme can reverse food sensitivities. Once the food sensitivities subside then the eczema will follow suit. Look for skin-care products that contain enzymes like bromelain and papain. Use of topical vitamin C serum will enhance enzymatic activity in the skin. Stay away from mineral oil, which could also be listed as paraffin or petrolatum, as it will aggravate skin disorders. It also will draw water out of the skin.
