Imagine yourself sleeping in your cozy bed but uncomfortably feel the itchiness of your skin. Can you take the feeling of eczema in your sleep?
Eczema is a chronic skin condition in which the skin becomes red, itchy and dry. It’s a type of skin inflammation occurs when cell produce inflammatory chemicals against irritation. The steroid in steroid creams in eczema prevents this reaction from happening when absorbed by the skin. It just relieves the symptom but treat the cause differently.
Eczema is a very common childhood problem and fortunately the good news is it tends to get better as children gets older. In the first place I think the simple thing you can do to prevent eczema is to always dress your children with cotton no synthetic at all and also always used non biological detergent powders to prevent this things from irritation. The next thing is used emollient that often called moisturizers that prevents the skin from becoming dry and important treatment for eczema.
Getting back to steroids cream, steroids cream can be really helpful. A lot of parents got very upset by the idea of using steroids on their child’s skin. They do come from lots of different grades like from very mild to moderate and to very strong. But a doctor will think carefully about what your child needs from very mild steroid creams just to get rid of the redness and inflammation of the skin quickly and early to prevent it from getting worst and then used the emollients very regularly as well.
In addition to emollients, topical steroids are also used for treating eczema by reducing skin inflammation. Topical steroids are creams that contain steroid medicines that can treat various skin conditions. But they are different from the anabolic steroids which are used for building muscles and athletes.
There are different typed of topical steroids and generally group in different categories depending on its strength like mild, moderate and strong. Like for example hydrocortisone steroid which is under the mild topical steroid.
There is no actually curing of eczema, what you do is keeping the pain the whole time. In a very few children there is undoubtedly a link which such things as dairy products but that’s the minority and it maybe your doctors get a few test to see if there is a link. Don’t just randomly try it to see if it works but do it with the help of a doctor.
