Eczema is an allergic disease associated with immunity. There are many reasons for his illness, including internal and external factors. Such as exposure to allergens such as dust mites! Ingestion of allergy-prone foods, such as seafood, nuts, beef, mutton, chili peppers, leeks, ginger, garlic. There are also autoimmune diseases, as well as mental tension, stress and poor rest, which can cause patients to be prone to eczema.
Spring is a high incidence season for eczema, mainly because there are many allergens in spring, such as willow wool, pollen, microorganisms, insects, pet fur and secretions. Moreover, the humid climate in spring makes eczema more likely to recur.
Many eczema patients who suffer from itchy symptoms often like to use hot water to scald the affected area when bathing, and bathe for a particularly long time, thinking that this will relieve the disease. In fact, eczema patients should not spend more than 10 minutes in the shower.
In recent years, a study has found that eczema is related to the absence of silk polymeric protein in the skin. The silk polymer protein plays an important role in the skin’s defense function, once missing, the skin will become extra “fragile”, once encountered environmental stimuli, allergens will easily invade, thus leading to eczema.
