We have a new range of clothing and treatments for Eczema and other Skin Conditions! We want to help people who suffer.
Atopic dermatitis or eczema is a growing problem with more than 1 in 5 children in the UK and Ireland suffering from the disease. If we look at the figures world wide the trend is about the same. Eczema can affect the new born through to mid teens with many going on to suffer from the complaint into adulthood. Although our knowledge of the disease is growing a cure is not something we can expect in the foreseeable future if at all. The triggers for eczema are many fold, diet, environment, pollution, chemicals, the list seems endless. What triggers the disease in one person may have no effect in another, this makes a curative treatment extremely difficult to put in place.
The symptoms can be highly debilitating, the skin can become very inflamed and irritated. This causes the sufferer great discomfort and anxiety leading to scratching. In most cases an itch-scratch cycles develops leading to further aggravation of the skin and open wounds. Open wounds attract bacterial infection most commonly staphylococcus aureus which is present all around us. Bacterial infections take the eczema condition to a higher level, the skin cannot function and the bacteria take a firm hold. At this level the commonly used treatments are invasive and usually mean hospitalization; corticosteroids are one such product used. Side effects can lead to psychological problems and bullying of sufferers is known to occur.
