Eczema, Dermatitis and other Skin Irritations

Posted on October 3, 2023

The term DERMATITIS and ECZEMA are often used synonymously. Dermatitis can be divided into exogenous causes (allergic contact and primary irritant) and endogenous, which implies all forms of dermatitis not directly related to external causes. Eczema is a non-infectious inflammation of the skin. The dermatitis/eczema group of skin diseases includes the following:

contact dermatitis – painful, weeping skin, an acute or chronic inflammation resulting from direct contact with chemicals or other irritants. A contributing factor condition may be when the stomach fails to produce enough hydrochloric acid for proper digestion.

atopic dermatitis or eczema – a persistent skin condition associated with allergy, often associated with hereditary background, tendency to develop one or more of a group of conditions (allergic rhinitis, asthma, eczema, skin sensitivities most common on the face, neck, wrist, hands and eyelids, behind the ears, in the creases of the groin, knees and elbows.)

Both atopic and contact dermatitis cause changes in how the repair mechanism of the skin works. The repair process in the skin is permanently activated, but never completed. People with eczema regenerate skin faster than people without eczema, but the skin never acquires normal immune function.


TO MAKE THINGS EVEN MORE CONFUSING: Eczema has two distinct phases. It starts off with a hot, inflamed and itchy stage. During this stage, the treatment has to be cooling and soothing. No heavy creams should be applied, as this would warm up the skin even more and make the irritation even worse.


Soothing, anti-inflammatory, relieves itching – for inflamed, itchy and hot stage of Eczema outbreak.

Natural remedy for hot, inflamed and itchy skin. Eczema Treatment (family friendly) – is a very effective calming blend for prolonged inflammation of dermatitis and eczema.

This treatment relieves the hot and itchy stage of eczema: is cooling, soothing, relieves itching, is anti-inflammatory and thereby enhances the healing of skin lesions. Aloe Vera is a mild anesthetic that relieves itching, swelling, heat and pain. Lavender and Chamomile Essential Oil are anti-inflammatory and help with the histamine related issue (allergy) of Eczema. Herbal Tinctures form a protective layer on damaged skin and interfere with the secretion of hormones that cause inflammation.

Shake well before use. Apply a minimum of 3 times/day. Once the redness and inflammation has subsided follow up with the ULTRA OMEGA THERAPY cream to lock in moisture and add a protective layer to skin.

Very small children (12 months to 5 years of age) may respond to our “SOOTHING COOLING RASH GEL” which is much milder than our “Eczema Treatment”. It is always best to try using the mildest form of treatment first before resorting to our powerhouse treatments.


• avoid eggs, peanuts, soy foods, wheat and dairy products
• keep your house humidified
• too frequent contact with water will deplete the skin of natural moisture (Complex Fatty Acid Cream will help to protect your skin from drying out)
manage your stress – stress hormones cause the immune system to secrete histamines and chemicals that are damaging to the skin

Dietary Supplements:
Total EFA (Omega 3, 6, 9 fatty Acids) adults take 3 times daily dosage
Quercetin is a bioflavonoid, found in almost all herbs and plant food. Quercetin is an antioxidant that has been found to inhibit the synthesis of enzymes that can cause allergic reactions by preventing the multiplication of cells that secrete histamines. Quercetin does not cause drowsiness as common antihistamines do, it eases inflammation of the skin, increases collagen production (a major constituent of skin and connective tissue), and prevents its breakdown.
