In cases where topical eczema treatment is not successful, doctors may prescribe oral eczema treatment. You may be prescribed one of the following namely antibiotics, antihistamines, corticosteroids and cyclosporine.

The antibiotics given are designed to decrease the irritation caused by Staph bacteria. You will have to take it for the next 14 to 28 days. In cases where you have this condition repeatedly, you may need to take maintenance antibiotics.

Some examples of these antibiotics include Bactroban, Cephalosporins, Cloxacillin, Erythromycin and Fucidin.

Next you have antihistamines which are very helpful in reducing itch. Because the side effect of this is drowsiness, patients are advised to only take it at night. Studies have shown that this will also help with any urticarial component of eczema of this skin condition. Two of these that are commonly used include Doxepin and Hydroxyzine.

You might be wondering if there are antihistamines that do not cause drowsiness and yes there are. But in a study that compared drowsiness and non-drowsiness antihistamines, the one that does not cause drowsiness is not as effective in helping those who have eczema.

Most people don’t give any thought to their armpits except to apply deodorant. But, lumps can be found in your armpit. Here are some of the common causes of armpit lumps.

Lumps of any kind in the body that weren’t previously there send out a warning flag. There is some process going on in your body that needs your attention. If you detect a lump under your armpit, a more careful examination by a doctor can reveal what is causing it.

Now, all lumps are not cancerous but you won’t know that without further testing. Lumps can be caused by lymph node enlargement, abscesses, swelling in the tissues, infections or cancer.

Lymph nodes are the tissue in the body that filters the blood. The lymphatic system can be infiltrated by cancerous cells as the body tries to rid itself of anything that is foreign to it. When you have a cold, sometimes the lymph nodes in the neck swell if there is an infectious component, like a sinus infection. There are axillary lymph nodes that are found in the armpit area.

Electronic cigarettes, or smokeless cigarettes, are becoming more popular in the U.S. despite the reservations of the U.S. FDA and American Cancer Society. The concerns revolve around the chemicals that are being substituted for tobacco as well as the potential to increase the number of individuals who turn to conventional cigarettes by young people. At this time the FDA has refused importation of the devices from China but they can still be found both on the Internet and at the local shopping malls.

Proponents of the smokeless cigarettes believe that they address most of the issues of smoking – from hand and oral gratification to nicotine and smoke. The concept is that the smokeless cigarette can deliver declining levels of nicotine to the recipient, which helps them to reduce their addiction and finally stop smoking. They believe that the upside to the cigarettes is that they can be enjoyed anywhere, since the smoke that emanates both from the end of the cigarette or blown out of the smokers mouth has no odor and they claim doesn’t contain any chemicals.
