Help for Eczema. What is Eczema?

Eczema, or dermatitis as it is sometimes called, is a group of skin conditions which can affect all age groups. In the United Kingdom, up to one fifth of all children of school age have eczema, along with about one in twelve of the adult population. The severity of the disease can vary. In mild forms the skin is dry, hot and itchy, whilst in more severe forms the skin can become broken, raw and bleeding. Although it can sometimes look unpleasant, eczema is not contagious. With treatment the inflammation of eczema can be reduced, though the skin will always be sensitive to flare-ups and need extra care.

Help for eczema. What causes Eczema?

The causes of eczema are many and varied, and depend on the particular type of eczema that a person has. Atopic eczema is thought to be a hereditary condition, being genetically linked. It is proposed that people with atopic eczema are sensitive to allergens in the environment which are harmless to others. In atopy there is an excessive reaction by the immune system producing inflamed, irritated and sore skin. Associated atopic conditions include asthma and hay fever. Other types of eczema are caused by irritants such as chemicals and detergents, allergens such as nickel, and yeast growths. In later years eczema can be caused by a blood circulatory problems in the legs. The causes of certain types of eczema remain to be explained, though links with environmental factors and stress are being explored.

    Dear Steven,

    I hope you are well. I am enquiring about hypnosis sessions to prevent my itching, scratching and picking of my eczema (all over my body).

    i) How many sessions do you think it will require?
    ii) How much will it cost?
    iii) Which consultant should I go with, who is specialised in hypnosis for eczema?

    It is my wedding at the start of May and I’m really hoping to sort out my eczema before then. I have suffered from eczema since childhood but it has been getting worse. I scratch even in my sleep and aren’t even aware of it. I have tried numerous steroid creams and ointments and antibiotics but nothing seems to prevent it or make it better.

    Kind regards
