Eczema Causes

Eczema Causes

Eczema causes can be varied. There are several factors that are associated with eczema. Possible causes of eczema vary depending on the type of eczema.
Problem with the Body
If there is something out of balance in your body, then eczema may appear as a result. If your body produces too much or too few hormones, then it may happen. Low thyroid function is also considered as another of the major eczema causes. When your body has a low thyroid function, then the blood supply to the skin can be reduced. In case of severe hypothyroidism, the skin may only receive one-fourth of the normal blood supply. So, your skin receives low nourishments. It will create an unhealthy condition for your skin which can result in swelling, itching, blistering, and scaling of the skin.
Problem with Digestion
If there is any problem with digestion, the skin cannot remain healthy along with the body. Nutrients are necessary for running the body and the nutrients are only available when your digestion is working fine. Without proper digestion, the body cannot get the necessary nutrients which are used as fuel for the body. Nutrients from the body are necessary for skin cell repair.
To avoid eczema, is very important to protect the gastrointestinal tract. The gut can work as entry point to many diseases and cause several problems of the body and skin. So, many doctors advise treatment of the gastrointestinal lining for treatment of eczema and a variety of health concerns.
Infection
Eczema can develop due to infection. Some types of eczema occur when an infection occurs in the human body. The immune system becomes over reactive and oversensitive due to continuous fighting against the germs and it can overreact to normal stimuli, which is another cause of eczema. Some people who have eczema also have candidiasis or yeast infections.
Exposure to Toxins
Exposure to toxins is another of the major eczema causes. Exposure to toxins can happen through three primary ways:
Through the digestive system (food)
Through the respiratory system (air)
Through the skin (absorption).
Today, in our lives, we are exposed to different types of toxic materials which have harmful effects on our bodies. Continuous exposure to such powerful toxins will result in problems of the skin including eczema. Toxins may reach your body using the methods mentioned above. They have different effects but they are harmful to the body. As the skin is more exposed to all the toxic materials, so, it is more likely to get damaged easily and faster. Exposure to toxins results in overloading of the kidney and liver. In that case, the skin needs to work harder for detoxification and it can result in skin problems like eczema.
Invasive Life Events
If life is too stressful, then it can hamper the natural working ability of the intestines. If that happens continuously every day, the body will produce cortisol (a hormone) which can destroy friendly bacteria and affect the intestinal tract. The digestive system may become impaired. It can also cause other problems like stomach pain, ulcers, malfunction of the adrenal glands and other diseases including eczema.
