The constant itching of the skin, which is dry and stiff, visually unsightly facial blemishes plus a number of additional nuisances associated with AD, causes it to cease to be a purely physical illness. Exhaustive to such an extent that patients stop sleeping - imagine that itching is so urgent that you can not fall asleep! Several such nights will make the stress unbearable, which will lead to a significant deterioration of their mental state.
Doctors are able to keep atopic dermatitis in check, but have not yet found a way to completely cure the affected patients. It is at the same time a mysterious disease, that over the years many myths associated with it were created. Some of them elevate it to a super-dangerous status (the myth of infectivity), while others present it in a more delicate light, which is equally harmful (eg the myth of rising from AD). It's time, for the benefit of patients, to verify the facts and shed the wheat from the chaff.
We started with the most important and crucial issue when it comes to the social reception of people suffering from AD. When we walk around the city with clearly smashed skin, and for this we have, for example, clear symptoms of a disease in the form of pimples on the body, we can not be surprised by outsiders, that it is important that we have some infectious "shit" and can not get any closer . But we have good news here - AD is not a contagious disease under any circumstances. Due to the fact that the blame for it (most likely) our genes, we can not infect anyone with it, whether by contact with the skin, saliva or droplet. It's good that we explained it at the very beginning. Therefore, we repeat: AD we can not get infected. At AD, I'm sick with myself, however strange it may sounds ...
Wrong. And it's very strong error, if we know how stressful and unpleasant in everyday intercourse can be atopic dermatitis. Well, the disease also brings with it a huge bag of problems that, colloquially speaking, sit on the chest - lack of sleep (and itching) causes irritation, fatigue, and all this is poured with a large dose of stress in its iron grip. And that stress "helps" the disease in attacking our body, we fall into a kind of vicious loop, where one helps the other to exist.
Slowly. If we have three different names of diseases here, apparently they were not for a reason, right? As for eczema - agrees, atopic dermatitis can be called eczema, and even more, it is exactly one of the forms of this skin disease. It's just not everything that is eczema, it's AD, but every AD is an eczema. You got it? In contrast, psoriasis has nothing to do with our "heroine" and is just another disease entity, although it can often be confused with AD (eg due to the presence of lichen in both these conditions).
And that's good! It would be nice, millions of patients with atopy (as this is also called AD) just at this moment are arming themselves with patience and waiting for recovery over the years! It's just that it will be faster to align and salivate, because this disease can not be simply "grown up". AD does not let go and keeps us basically a whole life. It is simply that some people mistakenly take longer (sometimes ongoing) remission of their symptoms as a symptom of total recovery. AD is like Chuck Norris - he's not asleep, he's awake.
Here the matter is this: children with AD often have a tendency to food allergies. They are also adults, but they are less exposed to them. The problem is that allergy products can cause AD, or rather "contribute" to the mysterious and mysterious development of the disease or its episode. Most often, we are allergic to cow's milk, eggs, fish, nuts, soy or even cereals. Since some products can contribute to the development of AD, it is logical to assume that their elimination will help us in the fight against the disease. Generally yes, but in the case of children, it is recommended to do this in stages, because they can be deprived of key nutrients from day to day, so they are needed in a period of constant growth. The diet helps in the treatment and prevention of AD, but we have to do it responsibly.
There is nothing worse for an atopic patient who complains of itching of the skin, and in return he hears good advice from mummy: "if it is itchy, do not scratch and stop". Just! Sooner will give up after being hit by a golf club because after losing consciousness it certainly does not itch anymore ... Well, the matter with the mechanism in the form of "I scratch, because it itches" is not fully understood. Medicine is taking further steps on the way to discover this secret associated with AD, but the head can be an accomplice here. In any case, for now, patients can help themselves with creams, moist medical dressings, or so-called emollients - generally speaking, oiling preparations. They create a layer on the skin that limits the escape of water from the epidermis). Recently, special probiotics have appeared on the market that support the treatment of AD symptoms. Since drunken people are able to fire a phantom cigarette, invalids have phantom pains, people with AD may also sometimes be deluded by the head that they itch, and not really at all.
It is not self-made, but if, for example, itchy scrapes, then jump into the canister, we have a good chance of catching sepsis, and this, quoting "constructors' experts," is falling down ...
Ooops! Does anyone here want to do dirty and sloppy atopiks? Nothing of that. Research shows that while frequent baths may exaggerate the already damaged skin of the patients, in order to maintain proper hygiene, one shower per day is sufficient. It is not just water but the right emollients and humidifiers that play a key role in maintaining the proper skin condition of patients suffering from atopy. Individuals with AD may simply use them more often, even after each larger bath. You can also pluck basically as much as you can, but who has time to alternate "soak" in water and then in the cream. Look out for the parabens present in cosmetics. Although research on their harmfulness is undermined, it is worth keeping moderation in their use and switching to natural emollients.
