Psoriasis and eczema are both skin conditions. They present very similarly on the body. Psoriasis presents as large, scaly, white patches of skin that itches, and when you scratch it, will produce pinpoint bleed marks. Eczema will start out as smaller bumps that are vesicles that when you scratch, they ooze and, over time, will create larger white plaques on the skin. Conventional medicine treatments for eczema and psoriasis are most often topical creams, such as hydrocortisone creams. When these creams are applied to the skin, the plaque diminishes in size over time. However, when you stop using the cream, the plaque.
Can return. When a patient comes into my office for eczema or psoriasis, I first begin with a medical intake to find out how long they’ve had their symptoms and how severe they’ve been. I take a look at their skin, and then I order a blood test to find out about any food sensitivities, their liver function, and total cholesterol levels. Diet plays a significant role in the development of psoriasis or eczema, therefore, based on lab results. My first step is to eliminate foods the person is sensitive to, and instead, I recommend.
Whole, organic foods that are nutrientdense and are less likely to aggravate the skin. Stress or high stress levels are known to increase inflammation in the body. Psoriasis and eczema are both inflammatory conditions of the skin, therefore, unmanaged or highstress levels will increase the problem of psoriasis or eczema. Stress management is necessary to help deal with psoriasis and eczema, therefore I prescribe stress management techniques, such as exercise, yoga, meditation, and deep breathing. I’ll also prescribe a number of supplements. They include fish oil for its antiinflammatory properties and ability.
To support the skin vitamin A for its skinhealing properties milk thistle for its ability to detoxify and support the liver and vitamin D to support the immune system. Depending upon the symptoms, I may also prescribe a topical ointment, such as a homeopathic cream to decrease inflammation and increase healing time, or a vitamin and mineral infused cream with vitamin A and zinc to support the skin’s healing process, or a calendula ointment, which can decrease the appearance of plaques and decrease the itchiness. Naturopathic medicine is about treating the root cause of disease, so when I treat the root cause of eczema or.
Psoriasis, I see significant to complete reduction in my patient’s symptoms. For example, I had a patient come in who had psoriatic plaques covering nearly his entire back, the backs of his legs, and almost all of the backs of his arms. After three months, we saw a significant reduction in the size of the plaques, and after six months, the only symptoms present were some light pink discoloration on the upper part of his back. Another example is a young child I saw who had such bad eczema on his feet and inbetween his toes, he was.

The Reasons Why You Have An Itchy Dry Scalp
Hello everyone this is Breanna Rutter from howtoblackhair and in this tutorial I will like to talk about the reasons why you have a dry itchy scalp so if you’re on this earth in your living and breathing and eating and sleeping and operating as a person or as an animal you are going to have issues with dry skin this is something that’s unavoidable because there’s always changes such as if you’re hydrated if you eat well the area you live in so in this tutorial I’m going to explain in 8 reasons as to why you may have issues.
With a try itchy scalp so the first most important reason as to why you may have issues with the dry itchy out is because you don’t have a cleansing or conditioning routine so even though you may keep your hair clean and you may keep your hair conditioned it’s hard to find a way dry scalp if you’re very inconsistent with how often you cleanse the condition your hair you want a routine that your skin is used to that you can use to so it stops yourself from having an itchy dry scalp if you watch her hair too much this will lead to dry scalp.
Or if you’re always putting water on your hair and scalp and then a couple of days you don’t your scalp starts to dry up or feels like it’s lacking so you consistent routine you can be up to adjust whether or not you need shampoo sessions throughout the week or you need to condition your hair a little bit more to get your scalp in perfect condition so the second reason as to why you may have issues with your dry scalp is because you’re not keeping her scalp moisturize is really important especially with AfricanAmerican.
Hair that you keep your hair as moisturized as possible and the same thing goes for your scalp water will be your best friend for moisturizing it is the number one moisturizing product ever to exist that’s where you get moisture so even if you simply have to use a water spray bottle to mist your scalp you want to make sure you seal in the water was type of oil to keep your skin hydrated the third reason as to why you may have issues with an itchy and dry scout because you are dehydrated if you don’t drink enough water for the recommended.
Amount of water a day where is the water coming from to moisturize your scalp what’s very important in your body are your vital organs like the rain your heart and lungs your digestive system so if you’re not taking any water then your organs are absorbing as much as they can and nothing is left for your scalp and even your hair so you notice that oh everything I do nothing works my scalp is always dry and itchy you probably need to drink more water so my 4th reason as to why your scalp may be itchy and dry is because you are using.
Humectants in a dry environment so depending on where you may live the climate may always be dry or you are experiencing a dry part of the season if you use humectants in your hair products during this time your scalp will be dry the purpose of a humectant is to attract as much moisture as you can but the downside about this is that if you’re going through the dry times a year we live in a dry area there is nowhere to extract moisture but from your scalp in your hair so if you use humectants when the air dry.
Or you’re in a dry climate or environment this will make her scalp even drier so save this for more of the rainy seasons or more of cool weather rather than using it when it’s hot out or not as humid when trying to fix your dry and itchy scalp you must keep this in mind so my 5th reason as to why you’re experiencing this is because you have product build up in your hair so depending on how much products you like to use or how heavy of ingredients is this will clog your pores and stop moisture which is water from penetrating.
Your skin in your scalp so if you have product build up this often leads to an itchy scalp and then released to a dry scalp because water cant penetrate through your product enough to give yourself moisture so if you like to use a lot of gels and serums and hair sprays make sure you wash your hair little bit more often to stop yourself from having product build so my 6th reason of why you are experiencing this hair problem is because you have mineral buildup in your water so you got to make sure that from the last tip you don’t have to many.
Products in your hair but in this to you have to be sure that your hair isn’t coated with minerals from your water if you happen to live in a place that has hot water you will notice that your hair will even be unmanageable at times because you can’t get moisture to really penetrate the hair like you need so in the description box below I have a link to my website actually talks about how to more mineral buildup from happening on your hair and the products that you can use to help cleanse your hair because of minerals.
So there’s common minerals that are in our water such as sulfer calcium and even some metals and as these things sit on top of your hair they are able to actually dissolve into your hair will be absorbed by your hair so they sit on top of your hair shaft in order to get the most out of your hair to stop your scalp also from being dry you need to use some type of deep cleansing shampoo to do so now my 7th reason as to why it may be hard.
To control a dry itchy scalp is because you use sulfate shampoo by nature sulfate shampoos are extremely cleansing shampoo that strip off almost everything so even when you shampoo your hair with sulfate shampoo this often leaves yoru hair dryer in your scalp even more dry make sure to use the natural shampoos to wash her hair because you just need to clean your hair you don’t need to strip your hair so by using more natural shampoos that don’t contain sulfate this is your hair in your scalp a good clean without constantly.
Battling dry scalp my favorite natural shampoo that I like to use this to Dr. Bronners Castile Soap or Castile Shampoo in the link below you can also check it out on the post as I talk about the different shampoos that I like to use to avoid an itchy scalp so my last and final reason as to why you may be suffering from a dry and itchy scalp is because you naturally produce low sebum so you’re like okay what does this have to do with scalp my hair what is sebum, sebum is the natural oil that your scalp excretes to keep moisture.
Lot into your scalp and into your hair so by nature naturally AfricanAmerican people produce lower sebum productions than others so that’s why it’s even harder to make sure to keep our hair moisturized what you want to do to help this situation is to use oils that similarly mimic what sebum is which is jojoba oil and even coconut oil so coconut oil happens to be my favorite oil for my hair and my scalp in all I do after wash or a co wash or just after misting my scalp and hair I dip my fingers in my coconut oil and I run.
My fingers across my parts If I have braid or twists and it takes away the dry scalp instantly so if you tried everything on the list sulfate shampoos to making sure that you don’t use humectants in dry climate and all the other reasons you just naturally produce lower sebum so you have to make sure you lock in water with some type oil so those are my reasons as to why you may be experiencing a dry and itchy scalp in this tutorial has been helpful to you make sure to leave any comments you have done in the comments section below.
DermTV What is Eczema DermTV Epi 173
Music Hello, I’m Dr. Neal Schultz pause and welcome to DermTV. Today I’m going to explain what eczema is and in a subsequent episode we’ll talk about how to treat eczema. The word eczema is a very, very confusing term and the reason that it is, is because on the one hand it refers to a very specific disease and on the other hand so many people use the word eczema improperly in referring to diseases and conditions that are either persistent or recurrent. Let’s talk about the real word eczema. Eczema.
Refers to a disease called atopic dermatitis. Atopic dermatitis is a rash that tends to be hereditary and runs in families, it usually starts in infancy or early childhood and it’s very often associated with two other diseases, with allergic rhinitis which is called hay fever and also with asthma and that association may not be in the same patient it may just be that all three, or some of those, run in the same family. Atopic dermatitis, again, usually starts in infancy and when it does, in an infant it’s usually on an extensive surface like on the back of the arm or the.
Front of the leg or thigh and sometimes on the side of the neck. By early childhood it’s changed by flexer surfaces, the front of the elbow, behind the knee and again, still on the sides of the neck. When you get the rash it’s usually very, very itchy so it causes a lot of scratching and the skin turns red and there are a lot of bumps but that’s the technical and proper term for the word eczema. But so many other people refer to so many other rashes that again are recurrent or persistent, with the word eczema and.
What they do is they take technical names and just add the word eczema after it. So dandruff is really called, seborrheic dermatitis but some people call that rash when it’s on your face seborrheic eczema. There’s a form of a rash that you get when there’s just no oil in your skin, that’s called asteatotic dermatitis. Asteatosis means a lack of oil, so asteatotic dermatitis is from no oil and you get a rash. But a lot of people call that asteatotic eczema. When people get chronic rashes on their hand, instead of.

Itchy Dry Scalp Bald Patches Hair Loss Treatment Testimonial from Jackie
I heard about shuna in the local magazine I saw it again in the local paper and it was just what I needed.Trichologists are quite rare around where I live so it was quite nice to see Shuna was close to where I live making it easy to come and see her. Before I came to see Shuna my scalp was very red angry dry and very itchy and also quite a lot of bald patches that I could see and I was also aware that other people could see it as well. The.
Condition affected me and affected my confidence, made me feel totally unfeminine. I used to go swimming a lot but it stopped me going totally because I was aware when I was in the pool, maybe people didn’t notice and it was just me but I’m sure that people were looking at me because they could see my scalp because my hair was wet and it was very obvious and I couldn’t bear to be in the pool. So I stopped swimming as a result of my condition. Also sitting down and people coming for dinner I would make sure I was standing up so that.
People weren’t talking to me from a height. That bothered me as well. So yes it did affect a lot of aspects of my life. When I first started seeing Shuna we talked a lot about the condition and possibility of why it’s happened. We went through what I was doing at the time to try and treat it myself the amount of money I was spending things like medication I was taking if any I also used to use a lot of things like mousse and hairspray. I’d wash my hair every other day or every 2 days thinking that was actually good for.
My hair. So after consultation with Shuna I realised that using all this stuff on my hair was doing no good at all. I would do anything I could to make my hair look thicker. Some of the products were very expensive and were very temporary as well, so that was one thing that had to go and also I went and had some blood tests at the doctor who was more than happy to help. Now I am much more confident. I can have my hair coloured, which I thought.
I couldn’t have. With Shuna’s help and advice and working in conjunction with my hairdresser we have come up with a plan. Having my hair coloured makes me feel more confident. Now people don’t seem to look at me anymore and it is growing back. Even my son was looking for me the other day and he said ‘oooh mum I can see it’s growing’ these little tiny spikey bits and he took a photo on his phone. So yes it’s fantastic. When I first came to see Shuna I was a bit, well I wanted to come, I was a bit apprehensive because I wasn’t.
Sure what to expect to be honest. I knew they treated scalp conditions and hair, but I didn’t really know a lot. I did a bit of research on Shuna and got a little bit but it was great. She worked totally round me to come. I totally felt at ease and we just talked about how it made me feel all the things I’m telling you now. We went through everything and it was great. It was fine and I couldn’t wait to get back. It was great to get some advice.
Rather than going to the chemist or the doctor actually and paying all this money for treatments that I thought made me feel better but were not long term. Shuna as a Trichologist has been fantastic, she’s been supportive, anytime even through the time I was getting my hair coloured, and she’s offered to speak to my hairdresser as well. She’s been an incredible support, even sometimes at the beginning of the treatment when I wasn’t sure if I was doing it correct I would email her text her, always having a response. Having to change.
