Causes of Eczema

If you have any type of eczema you don't need to look around to see who you've got it from; eczema is not contagious. Dermatologists are yet to pinpoint the exact culprit of eczema. However, there have been many close calls and possibilities mentioned.

For one, human genes have been pin pointed as a culprit. Eczema has been branded as a genetic disease in the same league as asthma. Then there are other factors that work together which don't make your skin too happy; they are termed as irritants. Some common known irritants are:

  • cleaning detergents
  • shampoo
  • latex rubber
  • fabrics
  • chemical based products

    It has also been mentioned that an eczema flare can also result from:

  • internal stress
  • emotional reaction to an event
  • food allergies
  • dry skin

    Random Useful Tip:

    If you are known to have a severe anaphylactic reaction, carry an epinephrine (adrenaline) shot with you at all times. Pay attention to expiration date and replace it regularly: upon expiration, it loses its effectiveness.

    Random Drug Info:
    Acyclovir is a medication that is used to treat herpes infections of the skin, lips and genitals, chicken pox and shingles. It comes in the form of ointments, tablets, capsules or liquids. It relieves pain and itchiness and promotes healing; however, it does not cure the condition. Possible (but not common) side effects include headaches, upset stomach, vomiting and diarrhea. Severe side effects, such as severe rash or itching, blood in the urine, stomach pain or fever are even less common, but require prompt medical attention.
