Eczema cream: The best treatment for protecting your skin's vulnerable barrier

ECZEMA is an inflammatory skin condition, where areas of the skin can become dry, red, rough and blistered. It's caused by a vulnerable skin barrier. How do emollients work to heal and soothe irritated skin?

CONCLUSION: With proper treatment, nummular eczema can be cleared over a few weeks, although the course can be chronic and characterized by relapses and remissions. Moisturizing of the skin and avoidance of identifiable exacerbating factors such as hot water baths and harsh soaps may reduce the frequency of recurrence. Diseases that present with annular lesions may mimic nummular eczema and the differential diagnosis is broad. As such, physicians must be familiar with this condition so that an accurate diagnosis can be made, and appropriate treatment initiated. PMID: 32778043 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

Authors: Marko M, Pawliczak R Abstract INTRODUCTION: The aim of this study was to investigate the effectiveness and safety of emollient preparations in comparison with the emollient ointment containing glycerophosphoinositol salt of choline in patients with atopic dermatitis (AD). METHODS: In a 'real-life' study, 300 patients with moderate AD were age-stratified and divided into two groups: patients applying GPI emollient and the comparator. We evaluated the effectiveness of AD treatment using: Eczema Area and Severity Index (EASI), Three Item Severity (TIS), Visual Analogue Scale (VAS) and Four-Item Itch Quest...

Authors: Arias Á, Lucendo AJ Abstract INTRODUCTION: The rapid expansion in the epidemiology of eosinophilic esophagitis (EoE) is being documented, along with cumulative research assessing environmental exposures associated with EoE and susceptibility due to genetic variants. AREAS COVERED: Incidence rates for EoE of 5-10 new cases per 100,000 inhabitants annually have shown an increase in recent reports of up to 20 in some countries; the highest prevalence being reported for Europe and North America, where EoE now affects more than 1 out of 1,000 people. EoE has been shown to be associated with several d...

Abstract Chronic hand/foot eczemas are common, but treatment is often challenging, with widespread dissatisfaction over current available options. Detailed history is important, particularly with regard to potential exposure to irritants and allergens. Patch testing should be regarded as a standard investigation. Individual treatment outcomes and targets, including systemic therapy, should be discussed early with patients, restoring function being the primary goal, with clearing the skin a secondary outcome. Each new treatment, where appropriate, should be considered additive or overlapping to any previous therapy...

This study aimed to determine an association between environmental factors and outpatient clinic visits for eczema. We collected data on dermatology clinic outpatient visits for eczema between January 2013 and July 2019. Data concerning environmental factors during this period were collated using national air quality network and air monitoring measurement parameters, namely barometric pressure, relative humidity, air temperature, and air pollutant concentrations, such as sulfur dioxide (SO2) and particulate matter (PM10). A distributed lag nonlinear model was used to investigate the relationship among eczema, environmental...

Malassezia includes yeasts belong to the subphylum Ustilaginomycotina within the Basidiomycota. Malassezia yeasts are commonly found as commensals on human and animal skin. Nevertheless, Malassezia species are also associated with several skin disorders, such as dandruff/seborrheic dermatitis, atopic eczema, pityriasis versicolor, and folliculitis. More recently, associations of Malassezia with Crohn's disease, pancreatic ductal adenocarcinoma, and cystic fibrosis pulmonary exacerbation have been reported. The increasing availability of genomic and molecular tools have played a crucial role in understanding the genetic bas...
