Let’s get started!
What’s The Definition Of Eczema?
Eczema (dermatitis): It’s a type of inflammatory skin reaction that lead by erythema (reddening), papules (bumps), edema (swelling), and crusts over the skin by thickening and scaling of the skin. It usually causes itching and gives a burning sensation to the skin. Atopic eczema, also known as atopic dermatitis is a common skin problem. Atopic may start in early childhood or sometimes in adulthood, and once gets underway, it barely goes away.
Eczema Affects Mental Health
Eczema is not just a skin disease, but can significantly affect your mental health. It does so because our body communicates with our brain. Whenever we experience a stressed situation, the body goes into fight-or-flight mode and so respond by increasing stress hormones production, like adrenaline and cortisol. With too much production of cortisol, it surpasses our immune system and causes an inflammatory response to the skin. So those people who live with eczema are particularly prone to this inflammatory response.
You take stress about your condition, it flares up eczema, and the condition gets severe.
Additionally, according to the National Institute of Mental Health, if you experience any of below symptoms for two weeks or longer, you may have depression.
• Feel depressed, sad, and low
• Feeling anxiety and hopeless
• Loss of interest in activities and decreased energy
• Difficult concert rating and restlessness.
Eczema— Lower Self-Esteem and Depression
During their teenage years, or sometimes even after teenage, several eczema suffers end up victims of relegation or bullying as their visible skin condition convenes them an as inexorable social stigma. Recreational activities get limited, as many sufferers tend to avoid outdoor activities, to evade sweating and worsening their condition.
Sufferers may start avoiding interacting with others and shy away from social situations. If you are one of suffers, then you can better relate because once in a life every eczema sufferer faces such situation where he/she ends up feeling that they don’t have right words to describe their condition. This social escape leads to frustration, anger, and anxiety, and ultimately results in lower self-esteem.
Agh, Is That Contagious?
Being an eczema patient dealing with questions, like ‘who beat you up?’ ‘Did you get cut doing shave?’, and Ugh, ‘is that contagious?’ is common. We can understand your feeling; it’s not your fault.
As a society, we must work to overcome the shameful humiliation that those who suffer from eczema bear. Eczema sufferers deserve to live a healthy and productive life without any discrimination.
Eczema can be controlled by avoiding activities which involve grass, sand, and chlorinated water that aggravate the condition.
