What Causes Eczema? Ways to Prevent Eczema Outbreaks

What Causes Eczema?  Ways to Prevent Eczema Outbreaks

A skin inflammation, eczema, also known as atopic eczema, refers to the changes that occur in the upper skin layer. These skin changes can be thickened and cracked skin, skin redness, crusting of the affected area and swollen raw skin, among others. The exact cause of this skin condition is not yet known but a mix of factors have been found to be behind this health problem.

CAUSES :

The factors that play a role in causing eczema are:

- Dry skin brings down your skin's ability to fend off irritants as well as allergy causing substances from entering your skin, resulting in an inflammatory condition.

- Genetics is also one of the factors that may affect the proper functioning of your skin as a barrier against harmful substances. Therefore, if either one of the parent or both suffers from the condition, it is very likely that their children too will suffer from it.

- Abnormal functioning of your body's immune system can also lead to this skin condition. This is because it's your body's immune system that fights off infections as well as harmful intruders.

- The presence of the bacteria called Staphylococcus aureus, which brings about sweat buildup, inflames the skin considerably, leading to this condition.

- Even environmental factors like pollen, cigarette smoke lead to the flaring of eczema.

How can you prevent an eczema outbreak?

It is very common for this skin condition to flare-up from time to time. But you can avoid such outbreaks or reduce their severity by following these very simple ways:

- Keep your skin well-moisturized so that it doesn't dry out causing further irritation.

- Sudden changes in temperature can cause the skin condition to break out. So, when the weather is hot, keep yourself cool but during cold weather, use a humidifier to prevent the skin from drying out.

- Keep sweating in check as it can cause an outbreak very easily

- Avoid the use of harsh detergents and soaps, woolen materials as well as the consumption of foods that may lead to flare-ups

Our son is 4.5 years old. For last 2-3 days he have temperature in the night. Daytime he is feeling ok and going school too. Please advice me why it's happening so. Giving 5ml syrup in the morning and evening.

General Physician,
Body temperature, whether you’re sick or well, just gets higher later in the day. But the explanation behind that answer has to do with all sorts of things. Three factors regulate your body temperature: A small gland at the base of the brain called the hypothalamus Your body’s vital functions (such as your muscle activity and heart rate) The temperature of your surroundings. Temperature usually follows a built-in 24-hour cycle. Its lowest point is between 3 and 6 a. M. Followed by a peak between 4 and 11 p. M. Two major factors regulate this cycle: Your hypothalamus has its own 24-hour hormone-secretion pattern. We don’t know the reason for this so-called circadian rhythm, but to some extent the day/night light cycle helps regulate it. The things the body does during the day (heartbeat, muscle movements, breathing) involve a release of heat energy, causing your core body temperature to warm up as the day progresses. This explains why your temperature increases toward the end of the day under normal conditions. If he is active and playful and temperature is not associated with runny nose, cough, tired or ill look you need not give medicine.

My daughter is 7 years old and she is having bed wetting problem. Please do suggest me what should I do ?

MD - Paediatrics, MBBS
Pediatrician, Ghaziabad
Is it recent or from the beginning? if recent, get her urine tested, if normal, then local irritation is the cause. If since birth, don't panic. Some children take a longer time to b continent. Make some lifestyle changes:- 1. Dinner and bed time shud b atleast 2 hrs apart. 2. Do not give milk or any fluid bfore bed. 3. Make sure she passes urine just bfore bed. 4. It is seen that kids usually pass urine in sleep at a fixed time gap, so you have to time it, and then wake her up just before that time period to visit the bathroom. All these measures usually help, but if nothing works (in case of bed wetting since birth), try homoeopathy.

It's normal height & weight. If you expect more than this he will be overweight. Because of increased activity children don't put on weight during 2nd year.

Hi, my 2 1/2 year old daughter has severe cough from past 10 days. Tried many syrups but didn't work. Not sure whether its due to reflux or infection in lungs. Looking for a best pediatrician who doesn't do experiments on children. Please do the needful. Thanks in advance.

MD - Paediatrics, MBBS
Pediatrician, Tumkur
Cough is a protective reflex to expel out any phlegm in the respiratory tract. You should not try to suppress it. If there's fast breathing show to your doctor immediately. If cough persists for more than 2 week, then only it needs thorough evaluation.

Continue with breast feeds till at least 1 year of age, avoid giving top milk, powders, natural home made food is the best for baby, to start with you can introduce rice water, light liquid moong dal, gradually increasing the quantity and increasing the consistency of dal and rice, you can additionally add boiled vegetable after 15 days /1month in dal and rice, subsequently with mashed fruits, banana, chikko, papaya, - see that when you introduce any new food there is a gap of 15 day to 1 month, happy parenting.

Hello, It's very important to keep repeating the same things again and again to a child if you want him to remember or to make a habit for him! There are few food items which helps you in boosting up your memory power, increases focus & concentration, so try to take more of these: 1. Choline: Good sources of choline include liver, milk, eggs and peanuts. 2. Vitamin B: B vitamins are not synthesized in the body, and thus need to be obtained from food. B-complex vitamins are water-soluble vitamins, which means that they are not stored within the body. In consequence, the B vitamins need ongoing replenishment. Vitamin B1 (thiamine) rich sources include unrefined grain products, ready-to-eat cereals, meat (especially pork), dairy products, peanuts, legumes, fruits and eggs. Foods that contain high concentrations of vitamin B3 (niacin) in the free form include beans and organ meat, as well as enriched grain and cereal products. While niacin is present in corn and other grains, the bioavailability of the nutrient is much less than it is in protein-rich sources. The role of vitamin B9 (folic acid) during pregnancy is vital to normal development of the nervous system in the fetus. Good sources of folate include liver, ready-to-eat breakfast cereals, beans, asparagus, spinach, broccoli, and orange juice. Animal protein products are a good source of vitamin B12 (cobalamine), particularly organ meats such as kidney or liver. Other good sources are fish, eggs, and dairy products. 3. Vitamin A: The foods highest in Vitamin A are any pigmented fruits and vegetables and leafy green vegetables. 4. Zinc: Zinc is a very important part of the brain as well; many regions of the brain, such as the cerebellum, and hippocampus have neurons that contain this nutrient. Zinc is needed to maintain normal Vitamin A levels in blood plasma. Sources of zinc are meats, certain seafood, whole grains, baked beans, oatmeal, milk (low-fat), cashewnut, almonds, kidney-beans, cheese, peas, spinach, sesame seeds, pumpkin seeds, flaxseeds. Medication: Take homoeopathic medicine for increasing memory - Anacardium 200/ once daily. Management: -Let him play with his peer group outdoor games daily. Any kind of physical activity improves the blood circulation of the whole body. -Get him enough sleep and rest. On average, a child needs between 7.5 and 9 hours of sleep each night and 1&1/2 to 2 hours of sleep during daytime. When a child hasn't got proper rest, it affects your brain’s ability to do this, and your memory suffers. -laughter can improve short-term memory in both kids as well as adults. -Cutting down on your use of technology (i. E. Sitting in front of your computer, phone, or tablet) for even 30 minutes can improve your brain health and help to think more deeply.

If your daughter complains of pain in anus, it may be due to hard stool. Give her fibrous food and plenty of water. If it is abdominal pain before passing stool, it in normal.
