Skin Asthma - Alternative Help for Rashes

Skin asthma causes your skin to become so itchy that you have this constant urge to scratch the skin rashes on your extremities.

This inflammatory skin disease is also known as atopic dermatitis. It can occur on your arms and knees, on your face and fact it can attack anywhere on your body.

And it wreaks havoc on your social life.

But it is not contagious, so don't worry.

If you have a family history of asthma or rhinitis, chances are, you are susceptible to this skin disease.

Symptoms of Skin Asthma


  •  Skin rashes
  • Dry itchy skin
  • Blisters on the affected areas
  • Lichenification or thickened areas of skin as a result of constant irritation

If you have other allergy symptoms, it is best to have an *allergy skin test. This is to rule out other possible causes of your skin rashes.

Avoid These Allergens and Irritants as Much as Possible.

  • Dairy products
  • Eggs
  • Peanuts
  • Clothing made from wool and synthetic fiber
  • Household chemical sprays
  • Profuse sweating
  • Stress
  • Detergents and solvents

If you have to manually wash your dishes, then, wear rubber gloves.

The food that you eat is a major factor in improving the condition of your skin. Nowadays, people like you and me are continually exposed to foods that are tainted with pesticides and other toxic substances.

Buy organically-grown foods if these are available in your area.

A diet which include organically-grown fruits and vegetables provide you with antioxidants which help build a strong immune system.

Alternative Approach to Skin Asthma or Eczema Treatment (as it is also known)

Aloe Vera Gel provides your body with essential and non-essential amino acids which help in the regeneration of cells.

Conventional treatments using steroids can have serious side effects in the long run. However, you don't have to worry about such things regarding the sterols in aloe vera because they are plant-based and are natural "steroids."

Sterols act as strong anti-inflammatory agents.

Aloe vera also contains magnesium lactate which gives a strong anti-allergic function.

Another important ingredient is anthraquinone complex.

What benefit can it provide in relation to your present condition?

Well, anthraquinones act as anti-inflammatory, anti-bacterial and anti-fungal agents. They give you a steroid-like effect but without giving you the side effects.

Aloe vera gel also contains B-complex vitamins. B-complex vitamin deficiency has been linked to skin disorders such as excema or atopic dermatitis.

Aloe vera gel is more effective against skin asthma when it is used in combination with the following:

  1. Lycium - it is a very strong antioxidant. It stimulates your body's defenses against free radicals

  2. Fish Oil - it contains omega 3 fatty acid which acts against inflammation. It helps reduce itching and other symptoms

  3. Bee Propolis - it is a natural antibiotic. It stimulates the thymus gland and boosts resistance to infection. It also accelerates new cell growth

So there you have it. If conventional treatment does not work for you, try the alternative approach with the approval of your family doctor.
