What is Eczema?

Eczema, alternatively known as dermatitis, is a chronic and inflammatory skin condition. It often causes itchy, cracked, inflamed, or rough skin, and it can be very uncomfortable.

Atopic dermatitis (AD) is the most common form of eczema, while dyshidrotic eczema (pompholyx), stasis dermatitis, seborrheic dermatitis, and neurodermatitis are other less common forms of the disorder. There are other forms of eczema as well, and your medical Provider will be able to diagnose and treat your skin condition.

What Causes Eczema?

Inflammation from common allergens, Pollen, dander from pets, dust, wheat-based foods and more have been known to trigger or worsen eczema in certain individuals. A qualified naturopath can help you analyze your lifestyle and diet to find potential sources of discomfort. 

Interestingly, gut health has been linked to eczema This is a common vein of exploration for functional medicine doctors* in Singapore. In a 2016 study, scientists linked underdeveloped gut flora with a higher risk of atopic skin issues, and the evidence suggests that probiotics (and a resulting healthy gut) help the body produce healthy immune responses, thereby limiting the risk of eczema in patients.

Other factors, like stress, fungal infections, and other things, can exacerbate eczema. If you are suffering from a skin issue and are seeking alternative methods or complimentary services to your existing health condition, contact Dr. Radhika Kamat at your earliest convenience to schedule a consultation.

How can working with a  Naturopathic eczema practitioner in Singapore help?

Naturopathic doctors* pursue the path of least harm when treating a patient, and anti-bacterial or pharmaceutical remedies would be considered a last resort.

The first thing one would address check is the diet. Are you consuming a high amount of gluten, dairy, or other food groups that could be inflammatory for certain clients. An elimination diet may be recommended, in which one common allergen is removed at a time. 

Probiotics and fibrous foods may help restore your gut balance, and avoiding artificial food coloring and preservatives can also help improve your condition.

Herbal medicines, like chamomile or calendula, have also been shown to help with eczema. It is worth noting that even though you may be able to secure natural supplements and remedies on your own, you need a qualified naturopathic doctor* to:

  1. Secure reputable, high quality products
  2. Ascertain the correct dosages of these remedies
  3. Mix different remedies together correctly so that they work together
  4. Agree on the correct duration of the treatment process

Additionally, a naturopathic doctor* would want to examine your lifestyle, stress load, and sleep habits. While not the direct cause of eczema, stress (and corresponding hormonal imbalances) do make dermatitis worse.

How Long Does It Take For Eczema To Clear Up When You Are Undergoing Naturopathic care?

Certain pharmaceutical products may dramatically improve eczema quickly, but these drugs often come with significant side effects and dependence. We prefer to help patients heal naturally as much as possible or provide complimentary care for those who seek as adjunctive support to their current treatments. 

This can take anywhere from a few days (especially when an allergen is identified) to weeks or months, depending on the patient. In short, we will search for the root cause of the  eczema, prescribe supplements and dietary changes as necessary, and help the body heal itself through a healthier lifestyle.
