Eczema Recipes

Eczema is a skin condition in which patches of skin become rough, bumpy and inflamed. Sometimes blisters that cause itching and bleeding occur. These can occur from a response to irritation (eczematous dermatitis) but often the cause isn’t apparent. Sometimes it is allergies, contact dermatitis, sometimes diet. These eczema recipes are not only easy but fun.

Some signs of Eczema are:

Dry, sensitive skin
Inflamed skin that is red.
Very bad itching
Darker colored patches of skin
Rough, leathery or scaly patches of skin
Oozing or crusting of the area.
Areas of swelling

 

It is important to learn what a trigger is for eczema for each person. For some people it can be wheat, or dairy, or detergents.
