What is dermatitis?

Eczema (also called dermatitis) is a superficial inflammation of the skin. It is quite common (2-7% of the population suffers from this health problem). The skin becomes inflamed and itchy. It can be very dry and red. If the eczema is linked to irritation by an external compound (chemicals, industrial solvents, soaps), the problem can be solved by avoid contact with the compound.

However, when there is no obvious external cause, it is more difficult to treat eczema. Let have a look at some supplements to alleviate symptoms.

Supplements for dermatitis

Probiotics

Because the intestinal flora plays a major role in the health, especially regarding eczema, probiotic therapy is particularly indicated. It can boost the immune system and prevent eczema, especially in children. Studies show that administration of probiotics to infants with eczema demonstrates significant reduction of the severity of eczema. Have in mind though that probiotics are more useful to prevent eczema than to cure symptoms.

Omega 3 fatty acids

Taking a supplement of omega 3 fatty acids (from fish oil) have been found to induce a significant reduction of eczema symptoms after 12 weeks. Recent studies have been found to work much better than evening primrose oil or borage oil, which were solutions previously used.
