Eczema is characterised by Dry (or with Pus) Itchy-Reddish-Inflamed Patches, accompanied by flaking at times & may form anywhere on the body. Various form the disorder could be Atopic Dermatitis (Affecting Infants), Seborrheic Dermatitis (Due Dandruff), Contact Dermatitis (Eczema is Contagious), Chronic Eczema (Thickening of Eczema Patches)…If it is just the Case of Dry-Chafed-Torn Skin with Mild Itching, it is simply a case of Vitiated Vata (easily taken care of by application A2 Ghee/Colloidal Silver & then having A2 in our Meals. Problems arise as condition aggravates to Eczema & then could give us any (Viral-Bacterial-Fungal) Infection. Eczema is a Contiguous Disease.
Ayurvedically (Roughly Vicharchika, in Sanskrit) it is Vitiation of Pitta & Kapha (Pitta Solidifying Kapha & Depositing in deeper Skin Layers-Tissues) => Eventually Serious Vitiation of Vata, which carries the disorder all over the place. Inflammation-Pain, as always, implies Vitiation of Pitta & Vata. Oozing of Pus-Blood denotes vitiation of Kapha & Pitta. Mostly, Deep Skin Disorders imply that vitiation of Doshas has moved The Infection onto ‘The external Passage’ (This is harder to treat than disorders of The Inner – G.I. Tract). All Doshas are vitiated in case of Chronic Lesions. Symptoms usually get aggravated at Night (Pitta Time: 2200-0200).
Causes for Eczema would be (Modern Science is Unclear on exact Causes!) Carcinogens that have entered our Life (Right in our Kitchen, Preservatives, Dyes, Chemicals via Various Medicines with serious Side-Effects, Pressure Cookers, I have seen people having 2 days old Refrigerated food-Highly Carcinogenic!!), Allergies to various foodstuffs (Soy & GMo. Foodstuffs…). Studies have also pointed to Stress as a causative factor (Stress would Vitiate Vata & Dry out our System including Skin). Weak Immune System is Primary reason for any/all disorders!
Ayurvedic Causes for Dry-Itchy-Inflamed Skin-Eczema would be Abdominal Disorders-Accumulation of AMA in the body (Eating Meals prior previous one Digested). Stomach is not getting cleaned up (Constipation, Indigestion…). Eating Incompatible Foods (Virudh-ahaar) (Visit Antagonistic-Controversial Foods) Suppressing natural Urges, Shower or Heavy Work after meals, Eating heavy foods beyond your Metabolism at wrong Times (Buffalo Milk, Curd at night, Soy, Late Night Non-Veg Dinner), or Making Love after Dinner!!
Symptoms (for Dry-Itchy-Inflamed Skin-Eczema) are ‘Skin Inflammation’, ‘Dry-Itchy-Reddish Patches with Profuse oozing’, ‘Pus Cells-Boils-Pustule Formation’, ‘Severe Itching leading to Bleeding’, ‘Leathery Chronic Lesions’…
