Information on Eczema

DescriptionEczema is a chronic inflammation of the skin, characterized by a red, itchy, scaly rash, often with small blisters, that eventually become weeping and encrusted. Eczema begins as a skin hypersensitivity reaction (similar to an allergy), causing chronic inflammation.
Treatment PlanHerbalists often focus on the liver when treating this condition. Liver cooling herbs, protective herbs, and anti-inflammatory herbs may be helpful. Bowel-cleansing herbs can be used, along with blood purifiers and lymphatic cleansers. Soaking the affected areas in Epsom salt or sea salt bath can be helpful.
