Atopic dermatitis or as it is commonly known as, eczema, is one of the most common and recurring forms of skin disease. Some of the common symptoms of eczema are redness, swelling of the skin, temporary discoloration and dryness among others. It not only causes a significant amount of irritation but is extremely persistent in its occurrence. Combating atopic dermatitis is a rather cumbersome task, often leading to anxiety and depression. It is indeed one of the most problematic skin hindrances. Dermatitis usually occurs due to the inflammation of the epidermis. 

Some of the more obvious causes are exposure to ultraviolet rays, familial predisposition, prolonged exposure to the offending allergen, latent infection, indigestion, hormonal imbalance among others. The occurrence of eczema considerably lowers the skin resistance and makes you vulnerable to various other skin troubles. Atopic dermatitis is especially congenital in nature. It has reported greater frequency in individuals whose family has some record of eczema or the other. Past incidents of asthma, hay fever may also act as triggers. Signs of eczema are usually manifested in itchy patches in the neck, scalp, and palms. 

Given the commonness of the disease, there are numerous remedies for it as well. However, many vouches for the efficacy of homeopathy in curing such as skin ailments. Homeopathy not only offers natural solutions to eczema but also detoxifies the system from within to curtail the frequency of such outbursts. Homeopathy also averts any kind of side effects. After closely scrutinizing the symptoms and their possible effects, homeopathy recommends a wide range of medicines to cure eczema. 

  1. Sulphur: Sulphur is endowed with medicinal qualities. Used either as an ointment or in the form of tablets, sulphur is used as arguably the best remedy for eczema.
  2. Graphites: Graphites are extremely helpful in abating sticky oozes as well as eyelids. Graphites help in curing gelatinous discharges. 
  3. Rhus Tox: Rhus Tox is an ideal therapy for dermatitis with itching and redness. It curtails the flare-ups and breakouts on the skin. 
  4. Mezereum: It is extremely helpful for weeping eruptions. It soothes intolerable itching and skin irritation.
  5. Natrum Mur: Natrum Mur is extremely effective in curing hairline eczema.
