by GuestPoster on July 6, 2011

Facial eczema is often deemed the most troubling form of the condition to actually live with. It is very embarrassing and you cannot simply cover it up. Spots and rashes on your legs and arms can easily be concealed by clothing, but not if they are on the face. It can easily change your self image and at the same time leave a devastating toll with regards to your self confidence. Dealing with a skin disorder such as eczema is difficult already, without it actually being discernible to all people around you. Read onwards to find out more regarding facial eczema and ways on how you can get rid of it.

Facial eczema is the same as with eczema on other parts of your body. Itchy red patches and inflamed skin can become persistent or break out every now and then. In extreme cases of eczema, the dermis may crack as well as ooze fluids at times. It may occur locally on one particular part of the body, or could also be experienced on various regions of the body simultaneously.

Eczema on the face can affect both adults and young children. The areas which are most typically affected include the scalp, inner eyebrow, creases of the nose, and in some instances, the eyelids. With scalp eczema, you will principally notice dandruff. The skin can be reddish and flakes, yellowish in color. It is imperative to discern the disparity between dandruff that is brought on by mere dry skin and with that which is brought on by eczema.

The face is one of the most noticeable parts of the entire body, so what do you do regarding facial eczema?

Well for one, you very much need to avoid scratching the affected area. This actually sounds pretty simple, but is very hard to do. An antihistamine can make things easier for you though. Take one prior to going to bed as this can help you prevent overnight scratching and help you sleep better. You can also take a tablet during the day; however, just make sure that you go for a non-drowsy variant.

Kukui nut oil is one of the many essential oils which make for an excellent treatment for facial atopic dermatitis. The nut, which is found mostly on the island of Hawaii, is said to be very effective at keeping the skin strong and healthy. Kukui nut oil has been proven to be very effective at relieving red, inflamed and intensely itchy eczema skin. This vital oil is often called the Hawaiian remedy to stop eczema for good!
