Natural and Alternative Eczema Treatment Options

Eczema Treatment {introduction}

Eczema, or dermatitis, is a term applied to a group of diseases that cause skin inflammation. Atopic dermatitis (an inherited disease characterized by dry, itchy skin and often associated with other allergic conditions) is the most common form of eczema, however, there are several other forms of the disease. They include: allergic contact eczema, contact eczema, dyshidrotic eczema, neurodermatitis, nummular eczema, seborrheic eczema and stasis dermatitis.

Below you will find alternative and natural treatment options including those from a Chinese Medicine perspective for eczema.

TCM Diagnostic Patterns Related to Eczema

Listed below are Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) diagnostic patterns that are commonly involved with this western medical condition/symptom. Properly applied, Chinese Medicine (including acupuncture and herbal medicine) treats patterns not individual symptoms/conditions which may better account for the range of symptoms often experienced by individuals. Pattern diagnosis/treatment is a crucial part of using Chinese Medicine for disease prevention instead of focusing on solely symptomatic treatments as is somewhat more common in western medicine. For more on this concept, please read What Does Acupuncture Treat? Or Treating the "Cause" and not the "Symptoms".
