What Is Eczema
Eczema is a skin disease that causes irritated, red, scaly skin and itching that can be unbearable. This happens because the skin lacks a protein called filaggrin which results in impaired ability to retain moisture properly and stop irritants and toxins from entering the skin. Simply put, the immune system and skin barrier don't work correctly. It often occurs because of genetics, usually in families where there is a history of allergies or eczema.
Eczema is most common in children and is outgrown by the age of 5. It can continue into adulthood. But this isn't always the case. You can sometimes develop eczema as an adult, usually, this will be due to allergies. If any adult develops Eczema, I always say its really time to start working on your immunity. There are seven types of eczema. It is important for you to know the exact name of your eczema you might have, which will help you to self treat if you are a biohacker like me.
When symptoms appear, don't ignore them for too long because our skin is the first defense mechanism to various pathogens and bacteria we encounter on daily basis. When our skin is inflamed, the opened skin can catch viruses and bacteria more easily and a severe infection can result.
What Eczema Actually Is
While there are many types of eczema, the most common types of eczema are atopic dermatitis and contact dermatitis. Atopic dermatitis is very common in children, especially babies, but can develop at any age. There are periods of inactivity, if triggers are avoided, years can go by without a flare-up. The skin is usually still quite dry during the inactive phase and requires daily moisturizing.
The active phase is a flare up and needs to be treated with creams to stop the itching and reduce the inflammation. If you developed eczema as an adult, it's most likely contact dermatitis. Contact dermatitis is either caused by an allergic reaction to something (allergic contact dermatitis) or because something irritated your skin (irritant contact dermatitis). It can take up to 72 hours after exposure to the symptoms to show.
