Asian women suffer from itchy skin and suffer from the usual symptoms of eczema, such as itching, irritation and, in severe cases, flaky skin. Eczema is a chronic inflammatory skin condition that causes itchy, swollen, or raised skin. There are many different types of eczema that are common in atopics. Eczema is the most common. The main symptoms are dry, itchy, red or inflamed skin and a flaky scalp. The condition can range from mild to severe and from acute to chronic.
Eczema is one of the most common human skin diseases worldwide. About one in ten people will develop eczema during their lives, with the incidence peaking especially in early childhood. Atopic dermatitis is the most common type of eczema, and it affects children and adults in about the same number of males and females. Some data suggest that it is more common in adult women than in men. According to recent statistics, approximately 20 to 30 percent of children and 5 to 10 percent of adults worldwide suffer from eczema. The incidence is increasing every year in many countries in Southeast and South Asia. For example, in Singapore, eczema affects about 22.6% of children and adolescents and about 13% of adults.
Practical ways to control eczema
First, we should identify the triggers of eczema and avoid exposure to them whenever possible. Secondly, daily moisturization of the skin helps to control eczema because it helps to reduce the symptoms of eczema and can repair the damaged skin barrier. Finally, choose the most appropriate product to protect your skin, such as Cetaphil PRO AD Derma Skin Repair Moisturizer, which is formulated with ceramides and loofah. Silk aggregates are essential for the production of natural moisturizing factors that keep our skin sufficiently hydrated for this reason. If our skin is deficient in silk polyproteins it leads to a weakened skin barrier and the skin is prone to dryness, inflammation and constant itching, which triggers scratching, which in turn becomes a vicious scratching-scratching cycle. This is the root cause of worsening eczema!
