Eczema is a skin disorder that is characterized primarily by redness and itching. In infants, the itchy rash can lead to an oozing, crusting condition, mainly on the face and scalp. It can also happen on their arms, legs, back, and chest. Children and teens usually have a rash in the bends of their elbows, behind their knees, on their neck, or on their wrists or ankles. The rash turns scaly and dry. The symptoms can range from minor to covering most of the body. In more severe cases, the discomfort and itching can cause irritability and sleep disturbance. In the majority of cases that I have seen in infants and children, the cause is often related to food and/or environmental allergies/sensitivities (which may or may not show up on a standard allergy testing panel).
Some of the things that are most common in aggravating symptoms include: dairy, eggs, wheat, detergents and adverse reactions to vaccines. Of course, there can be other substances that may also cause symptoms in some patients and in many cases, there are multiple causes that have to be addressed.
I have successfully treated eczema in infants, children (and adults) using the Laser Meridian Imprinting for 20 years. Children and parents are always surprised to see how quickly we can remedy this annoying problem. This is a highly effective and completely painless treatment that is able to greatly reduce or eliminate eczema. Most children will get relief within 2 to 4 easy treatments (depending upon the severity and duration of the eczema). If you have questions, please don’t hesitate to call or email.
