Eczema Solution

What is Eczema?

Eczema is a common skin disease characterized by inflammation, itching, and oozing vesicular lesions that become scaly, crushed or hardened. The condition usually occurs symmetrically on both sides of the body and is recurring.

Why do people get Eczema?

The specific cause of eczema is complicated, as it can develop due to both internal and external factors and can even be due to psychosomatic issues such as stress.

Internal factors:
Predisposition for eczema
Functional disorders of the secretion glands
Digestive system disorders (stomach problems, intestine problems, constipation, diarrhea)
Nervous system issues
Metabolism problems
Stress, exhaustion
Varicose veins
Excessive sweating
Skin dryness

External factors:
Chemical imbalance caused by prescription medication
Cosmetics such as perfume and make-up
Certain spices and condiments
Animal toxins
Certain foods such as eggs, seafood, and milk
Airborne irritants such as pollen and dust
Bacterial and viral infections
Sun and wind exposure
Cold temperatures

Eczema is an allergic or auto-immune reaction to any one or combination of the internal and external factors affecting the body. There are many different kinds of eczema, some with unknown causes.

Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) believes that itchy skin is caused by “wind evil.” In TCM, itchiness can move across different places on the body, like the movement of the wind. Inflammation and oozing vesicular lesions are caused by “wet evil.” In TCM, a negative kind of wetness causes effusion from eczema lesions, so we call it wet evil. In this sense, the main causes of eczema are a combination of both wind and wet evil.

Eczema Treatment

Treatment is often performed as a combination of two or more of the following methods, depending on each patient’s conditions: the nature of their body, age, gender, the symptoms and the stage of the problem, etc.

Internal Use Herbal medicine:
Depending on the above factors, individual herbal formulas can be prescribed. Patients can choose to drink real herbal tea, herbal pills or herbal powder. While the taste of real herbal tea is not pleasant, it is the most effective treatment.

External Use Herbal Medicine:
Herbal soaking: The patient uses these remedies at home, with a formula made individually for each case. The prescription is created especially for local treatment.

Herbal shower: Used at home, the individually-made formula is meant for a full-body treatment.

Herbal emulsions: Containing special formulas made by Dr. Jenny Ou, these act on lesions directly. Because each specific formula is made to suit each individual patient, the treatment can penetrate skin much faster and more effectively, resulting in faster treatment time.
Herbal paste: For direct lesion treatment, this variable paste acts locally on the infection.
Herbal lotion: For normal to dry skin, the lotion treats the entire body for overall healing.
Herbal cream: For patients with very dry skin, this cream is denser than the lotion and treats the whole body.

Herbal steam: Herbal steam treatment is performed in the clinic. The particles of herbs dispersed in the steam work quickly to heal skin cells.

Herbal moist: Made from a special formula by Dr. Ou for different stages of the eczema, this very effective treatment helps stop the itch and hydrates the skin.

Acupuncture: Able to treat internal organs or external skin problems, acupuncture adjusts entire organ systems by maintaining balance through acupuncture channels. Upon inserting the needle into the skin, a reaction causes white blood cells and lymph cells to rush around the needled area. This strengthens local skin repairing functions to rapidly induce healing. Acupuncture is used for both its localized effect and for readjusting the entire body balance to repair the organ system to reduce the symptoms of eczema.

Cupping: Increases blood circulation, releases toxins by putting pressure on the skin directly, and reduces the swelling and redness that are manifestations of eczema.

Herbal Lotion Massage: This treatment works by helping the medicine penetrate the skin for faster healing.

Diet: Eczema patients should avoid consumption of meat, as animal proteins can cause allergic reactions. Other foods to avoid for this reason include nuts and fried, spicy, and canned foods. Traditional Chinese Medicine believes the above foods belong to “hot” foods and produce “heat evil” and “wet evil,” both of which promote and worsen eczema symptoms. As everybody’s condition is different, each patient will get a recommended individualized diet plan.

Prevent Eczema

1) Does your body have a predisposition for eczema?

Problems such as asthma, hay fever, diabetes, and skin issues such as excessive dryness, itching, and infections put you at a greater risk of eczema. You must treat the problems quickly and take care of your health.

2) If you are an eczema patient already, some methods to prevent the recurrence of eczema include the following:

-Apply Dr. Jenny’s™ Skin Care lotion or cream everyday.
-Avoid scratching skin.
-Avoid eating meat (especially red meat) and spicy, fried, or canned foods.
-Avoid the “External causes” mentioned above.

3) Are there any side effects of the above treatments?

There are generally no side effects because all ingredients are completely natural, with no harmful chemical compounds.

There are two stages of eczema: Acute and Chronic. Acute eczema is usually the beginning stage of eczema. Treatment at this time is critical because it has the greatest chance of proper recovery. Without treatment, the problem will progress to chronic eczema and become much more difficult to treat. Many patients suffer with eczema symptoms for years because they fail to receive proper treatment in time.

Dr. Ou’s unique treatments and techniques have relieved thousands of patients with excellent results. Depending on the severity of the condition, it generally takes one to three treatments to properly treat eczema and produce good results. As with all medical treatments, patient cooperation is vital.
