areas or developed
countries. Like asthma, it may be linked to
pro-allergic/pro-inflammatory T-cells immune response. Such responses
are becoming more common in developed countries, because trends toward
smaller families, cleaner indoor environment, and early use of
vaccination and antibiotics deprive children of early exposure to
infection and allergens that suppress pro-allergic T cells and induce
AD occurs when environmental exposure
triggers immunologic, usually allergic, in generally susceptible people.
Common environmental triggers include foods (e.g. Milk,
eggs, soy, wheat, peanuts, fish), airborne
allergens (e.g. dust mites, molds, dander), and staphylococcus aureus colonization on skin due to
deficiencies. AD is common within families, suggesting a genetic
AD usually appears in infancy, typically by 3month. In the acute phase,
lasting 1 to 2 month, red, weeping, crusted lesions appear on the face
and spread on the neck, scalp, extremities, and abdomen. In the chronic
phase, scratching and rubbing create skin lesions (typically
erythematous macules and papules that lichenify with continued
Patients have a threshold for perceiving itch, and itch worsens with
allergen exposures, dry air, sweating, local irritation, wool garments,
and emotional stress.
AD may become generalized. Secondary bacterial infections and regional
lymphadenitis are common.
During the course of the disease there may be periods when the disease
becomes worse; such periods are called flare-ups or exacerbations. Then
there may also be periods when the skin symptoms improve or clears up
completely and such periods are called remissions.
Frequent use of topical products exposes the patient to many potential
allergens, and contact dermatitis may aggravate and complicate AD, as
may the generally dry skin that is common in these patients.
treatment is strongly recommended in Asthma. Homoeopathic medicines
Relieving the symptoms:
- Relieving the symptoms
- Preventing exacerbations (attacks)
- Controlling and curing the disease
Homoeopathic medicines offer considerable relief symptoms of Atopic
dermatitis patients like itching, papules. Preventing exacerbations
Homoeopathic medicines prevent any exacerbations at fist prolonging
the time between episodes and later preventing their occurrence leading
to permanent cure. Controlling and curing the disease process:
Homoeopathic medicines offer permanent cure in AD they act by
enhancing the individualís immune response against allergens, thus
producing stronger immunity so as to decrease inflammation caused by a
variety of triggering stimuli.
AD development is multifactorial and depends upon interaction between
susceptible genes and environmental factors. Thus homoeopathy with its
deep acting constitutional remedies offers excellent results. Our
medicines have not to be taken for life time. Once cured the patients
develops immunity towards the triggering stimulus which is maintained
even after medication is stopped.
It also helps in preventing occasional features which develop along with
long standing AD Like:
Cataracts, facial Erythema, Food Intolerance, Nipple eczema, Recurrent
Conjunctivitis, Wool Intolerance etc.
