Eczema Symptoms, Causes and Treatments
If you’re one of the millions of people who struggle with eczema, then it’s time to discover the incredible healing benefits of pure refined emu oil.
It goes without saying that eczema can be a frustrating and embarrassing problem. And although there is no cure for eczema, the symptoms are treatable.
What are the symptoms of eczema?
Eczema can vary widely in type, severity, and location on the body, but the main symptoms include episodes of dry, red, flaky, swollen, inflamed and/or itchy skin. These symptoms often "flare up" in response to some sort of trigger. For most people, the severity and frequency of flare-ups tends to decrease as they get older.
What causes eczema?
As with symptoms, the causes of eczema will vary depending on each individual who has it. Many doctors and scientists believe eczema is related to certain allergies, including asthma and hay fever. Some people may have inherited the tendency to develop eczema from their parents, although the condition is not contagious.
Even if the exact cause of your eczema is unclear, you can still learn to identify and avoid any triggers that cause your eczema to flare up. Some of the most common triggers include:
- Chemical Irritants, such as those found in many conventional home and beauty products like shampoos, soaps, and disinfectants
- Allergens and Microbes, including pet dander, pollen, dust, excessive sweat, fungi, and other mold
- Food, especially dairy, soy, wheat, and eggs
Even stress and extreme weather has been known to trigger eczema in people of all ages.
What kind of treatments are available for eczema?
If you have eczema, it's very important to keep your skin clean and moisturized. This speeds healing and can prevent future flare ups.
Eczema is often treated with prescription or over-the-counter creams and medications. The problem is that many of these "conventional" medications are at best ineffective, and at worst contain chemicals that actually cause uncomfortable side effects.
Today, more and more people are discovering true relief from their eczema by using all-natural and chemical-free products, like Emu Joy.

"I bought emu oil for my daughter and there is a significant improvement with her eczema flare-ups." Reid C.
Miracle worker for my persistent eczema
"Several months ago, I developed two eczema spots on the side of my face. I've never had eczema before but that's what the dermatologist thought they were. They persisted for many months and I kept thinking they would go away but they never did. I didn't want to use steroid cream so I researched this product and I'm so glad I purchased! Within just 2-3 days of use, combining Soothe My Skin and the Emu Joy emu oil, the spots are already 80% faded!" Jessica
