Eczema The word 'eczema' comes from Greek words that mean 'to boil over'. 'Dermatitis' comes from the Greek word for skin and both terms refer to exactly the same skin condition. Eczema may also be referred to as 'atopic eczema' when it is caused by allergies. It is generally pronounced eckzema, exzema or exsama. Eczema is a fairly common condition. Statistics on eczema indicate that eczema affects more than 15 million Americans and ten percent of all children. Strangely enough, the condition appears to be getting more common. Some hypothesize that it may have to do with our increasing exposure to chemicals as well as other allergens NOW LETS TALK TREATMENT: Good, sensible skin care is an important part of managing eczema. In many instances this can be enough to manage milder cases. First line eczema treatments: Moisturizing is one of the most important self-care treatments for sufferers of eczema. Keeping the affected area moistened can promote skin healing and relief of symptoms. Doctors will usually start patients on the most simple treatments. For example; a room-temperature bath which will help remove crusted skin, then apply a good moisturizer immediately afterwards, this will help to retain the skins natural moisture. More on moisturisers. Corticosteroid creams: Corticosteroid creams and ointments have been the mainstay of eczema treatment for many years. There are OTC creams available for milder cases. If your eczema is more severe your doctor may suggest a prescription only cream. In the most severe cases and usually only when other treatments have failed your doctor may prescribe oral corticosteroids. Immunomodulators: Newer drugs called topical immunomodulators are available to help treat eczema. These medicines help control inflammation and reduce immune system reactions when applied to the skin. Talk to your doctor about whether these may be right for you. Oral antihistamines: Oral antihistamines will sometimes help to relieve eczema symptoms and can be useful at night-time. They can cause drowsiness and may help you to sleep despite the eczema itching Other Treatments: In the most extreme instances of eczema, your doctor or dermatologist may suggest ultraviolet light therapy. There are also drugs that suppress the immune system and may be tried for adults. Your doctor would be the best person to talk to if other more traditional forms of treatment have not helped. Nutritional treatments for eczema Food exclusion diet: There is evidence to suggest that food sensitivity is a common cause of eczema in children. A supervised food exclusion may help to identify eczema triggers and eliminate them from the diet. Food exclusion diets in children should always be supervised by a medical professional. Anti-Candida diet: Some nutritionists believe that eczema can be related to an overgrowth of candida or yeast organisms. If the rash is itchy and you have an upset bowel or other symptoms of candida, the anti-candida diet may be worth trying. Supplement treatments for eczema While there is very little conclusive evidence that proves that supplements can help with eczema, many people do find that they help. Some research has suggested that people with eczema may not process essential fatty acids from food normally, leading to low levels of a fatty acid called gamma-linoleic acid (GLA). This helps your immune system work properly, so taking a supplement could help reduce the skin inflammation associated with eczema. Evening primrose oil, starflower oil and blackcurrant seed oil all contain GLA. A number of studies have found that taking these supplements could not only reduce the number of eczema flare-ups but also how severe they are and the length of time they last. An analysis of nine scientific trials found that GLA was also helpful in reducing itching. Borage Oil, another source of GLA, has show in some studies to reduce skin inflammation, dryness, scaliness and itch in eczema patients. Fish Oils may also help eczema. The largest study of fish oil and eczema did not show any positive improvements, however other studies have shown that fish oils can reduce the severity of symptoms. B Vitamins may play a supportive role in managing eczema. Some evidence suggests that eczema may be made worse by deficiencies in Vitamin B12. Other studies suggest that a deficiency of other B Vitamins like riboflavin may be involved so taking a vitamin B complex supplement would be worth a trial for a month. Herbal treatments for eczema Many herbs have traditionally been used to help relieve the symptoms of eczema. Liquorice root contains a substance called glycyrrhizinic acid, which is believed to help reduce the symptoms of eczema. It can be taken internally or applied directly to the skin. Witch hazel: A cream prepared with witch hazel and phosphatidylcholine has been shown to be as effective as 1% hydrocortizone cream in at least one study.

It could be staph - but it could also be something else. If the skin is scaly / flaky and the rash itches - it could be a sebborheic dermatitis - an autoimmune rash - your skin is attacking itself. This is not to suggest any for of flesh eating bacteria mind you - many people have this disorder. I would suggest seeing a Dr. - Dermatologist would be better - ASAP. Also - I would suggest you stop putting hydro-cortisone on the rash until you are seen - the steroid in it could actually make the condition worse. In the mean time - keep the area as dry as possible and keep lotions to a minimum. You could also be allergic to something either perfume based or an ingredient in something. Get it looked at by a Doc.

If you changed soaps or deodorant or fragrance. it could be from that. It happens in men when they change stuff. Let him get in cool air, shower that arm without soap, and air the arm out for about 24 hours. sounds like heat rash. His shirts may be too tight for him, Gold bond works wonders there. Good luck

have him take a few doses of Benedryl exactly as directed and use Benedryl cream. if he doesn't get better in a few days or worsens, go to an urgent care.

My son has had an ezcema patch on his face pretty much since he was born, which is a very itchy, red, and almost bubbily/scaley looking rash. After talking to his peditrician, we started putting A&D ointment on it and washing his face at bath time with water only. Though it didnt get the rash to go away 100%, it did help. We talked to his pedatrician again and now he is on a pescribed ointment, which worked after two days. I would start with the A&D. If it doesn't go away completely, talk to your pediatrician about getting some pescribed. A&D ointment is the best stuff for everything, we use it for diaper rash, red spots on our son's skin, I've even used it when my nose was raw from a cold. If it is ezcema, your daughter should grow out of it and it shouldn't scar. (Scarring was something I was worried about, so I asked.) Hope this helps.

Acie Originally Answered: What challenges did Ulysses S. Grant face during the Civil War that the Confederate army did not face?
Grant had ALL the advantages except that he had to invade the enemy's territory. He had 3x times the men and 10x the supplies. What he didn't have was the brains to deal with the far superior Robert E. Lee's mind.

A shooting type of civil war/revolution? Hmmm... the Malibu People's Revolutionary Movement vs. Ft Hood.. where, as a betting man, to put my money?
