What are the Causes of Eczema?

Eczema is a rash found on the body; it causes small itchy blisters to appear on the body and can be troublesome to deal with. Eczema is a very itchy rash which can irritate a person weeks before it even shows up, in the form of itching and peeling dry skin.

No one has immunities against eczema nor can it be cured, the virus will always occur again in life. There is no definite cause for how eczema comes about but there are many reasons it may happen. Stress can cause eczema it seems when someone is under pressure they are a lot more apt to getting sick or even rashes such as this.

If eczema is present, stress can cause the rash to become worse. Huge changes in weather can affect the body in which eczema may come about. If the weather a person is used to all of the sudden changes, maybe on a long vacation or moving from one place with a warm climate to a place which is cold or vice versa, the body may not adapt well.

In areas where it is hot and sweat is present often or cold where the body is dry an outbreak of eczema may occur. Eczema is mainly caused through genes, those whose parents had it or many allergens can pass the tendency to get eczema down to their children.

Irritants in the air such as tobacco smoke can trigger eczema. It does not matter whether the person is smoking directly it or it is being passed through the air as second hand smoke. Some chemicals and solvents whether they be chemical, such as paint thinner or cleaning solvents like bleach or window cleaner, can all irritate or cause a person to get eczema.

There are many causes for an outbreak of eczema, mainly any allergens, harsh changes in weather or genes can be a reason for why people get the rash. Allergens are a big cause for eczema to come up as there is a lot of pollen in the air, many people have allergies to plants dust, dust mites and so fourth. Lastly causes of eczema could lie in what a person eats. Some nuts and dairy products, preservatives and wheat products are a few.

The best thing to do in cases of eczema is keep a list of foods eaten and when outbreaks occur and avoid eating or being around these so as not to provoke an eczema outbreak. As stated earlier there are no certain causes for why people get eczema and there is no cure, only ways to manage the rash when it does cause outbreaks.
