While not a whole lot is known about the causes of eczema, there is some level of knowledge you can determine about what causes your own symptoms in particular. The root causes of eczema are typically traced back to genetics. With eczema, a person typically is genetically predetermined to have a much higher sensitivity to allergic reactions of the skin. Essentially, that is all that eczema is.

Since I have a number of people in my family with eczema, it was likely even before the day I was born that I would have eczema. Thus, it’s no surprise that since my aunt and several cousins on my mother’s side have it, I have it as well. While my eczema isn’t as debilitating as some, it is very irritating and has often made me feel embarrassed to wear short sleeve shirts and shorts due to all the bumps and rashes I would sometimes get on my arms and legs.

While I recommend consulting a dermatologist in order to fully treat eczema, especially serious eczema, it is most definitely possible to treat a lot of symptoms with simple, natural eczema home remedies. It isn’t impossible, since eczema is merely an allergic reaction. If you are allergic to dust and decide to vacuum and dust your home twice per week, obviously your symptoms will go away. The same is often true of eczema. The only tricky part can be figuring out what exactly irritates your skin in particular and what you can do to eliminate it.
