Who can I trust to diagnose my skin rash properly, or can I even do it myself? Where can I learn more about what actually causes eczema in the first place? Will a doctor know the answer?
This article is meant to answer the questions many people who experience eczema outbreaks might have. What triggers eczema outbreaks is not the same as what actually causes eczema. This is pretty important to understand. A lot of different things can trigger a skin rash to appear, but if you have a chronic eczema condition there is a reason for that.
Some triggers are allergens in different forms, and in addition certain viruses can trigger rashes. Stress can sometimes trigger eczema or rashes. Heat and sunburn can also trigger eczema rashes to appear. Insects stings can now and then trigger eczema. If the eczema rash vanishes by itself it’s safe to assume that it’s probably not a chronic condition, but rather just a fleeting rash.
However, if your skin rash seems like a chronic eczema condition, things are not so easy. It can be a good idea to seek the advice of a medical doctor or dermatologist to figure out what type of eczema you suffer from. But the neither the doctor, nor the dermatologist, will ever talk to you about what really causes your eczema in the first place.
The medical community does not recognize any root cause of eczema, they only recognize triggers. I would therefore allow them to diagnose my skin rash, but at the same time I would seek knowledge about the root cause of my eczema problem from other sources.
In the world we live in today, diet has in fact become our biggest problem. There is unnatural chemicals in our food, in our drinking water, and in the very air we inhale every day. But that’s not even the worst. The most disregarded and most dangerous thing for the body are the horrible food combinations which flourish in the westernized diet and eating habits.
It’s in this area you need to look if you want to discover the fundamental cause behind your eczema symptoms. It has to do with poor diet and slow digestion. The onset will often be early in childhood, and it will escalate into a vicious spiral as the child grows older.
At some point the imbalance will simply become too much for the body to handle, and you will suffer from eczema outbreaks. If you want to cure your eczema you will need to understand and take care of the underlying cause. Dealing with the symptoms is not enough. This should be your priority after the initial “diagnose my skin rash period” has been dealt with.
To conclude we might say that it’s OK to visit a doctor to find out what type of eczema you have, but you should really look into the root cause of eczema if you want to get rid of it forever.
