What Causes Eczema?
Most sufferers have a genetic predisposition, the severity of which is affected by environmental and immunological factors. Many people with eczema also have existing atopic respiratory disorders, such as allergies and asthma, which exacerbate the condition.
So, what exactly causes eczema’s erythematous patches? In brief, a weakened and easily-comprised skin barrier.
Your skin contains a protein named filaggrin, which moisturizes the hardened, outermost layer of your skin and cornifies (hardens) cells in the epidermis. In eczema sufferers, filaggrin is often mutated to the point that it cannot properly hydrate the skin or fortify it against external irritants, thus making it more susceptible to inflammation and dehydration (Journal of Clinical, Cosmetic, and Investigational Dermatology).
Clinical evidence has also linked staphylococcus aureus infections with outbreaks of atopic eczema.
Dried skin typically lacks adequate water and lipids, with the latter exhibiting both moisturizing and antimicrobial properties. Owing to their compromised skin barrier, eczema sufferers’ skin often lacks antimicrobial peptides and the processes by which immunological responses are activated against invasive external particles. These factors, combined with the skin’s dried, erythemous lesions provide a fertile environment for the staphylococcus aureus bacteria to proliferate and further compromise the skin’s barrier and inflame the skin.
Can Eczema Be Cured?
Whilst there is no method of permanently curing eczema, we can eliminate the symptoms, although various triggers, such as stress or illness can cause a flare-up. Treatment will usually combine multiple modalities comprising: Omnilux LED therapy, Body Boost Bed, Body Boost Bed, bio-available supplements (especially Vitamin C and Omegas 3, 6 & 9), micro-needling with growth factor, and topical moisturisers such as AminoGenesis Cocoon.
AminoGenesis Cocoon moisturizer is packed with 17 amino acids and several silicones, which increase hydration, fight inflammation, and can even boost levels of antimicrobial peptides in the skin. Its formulation also includes dimethicone, which is a hydrating and conditioning silicone that acts as a skin hydrator and cellular turnover accelerator, which helps to fortify the skin barrier and slow the rate of trans epidermal water loss and general loss of moisture.
