Eczema and Dermatitis Natural Herbal Ayurvedic Treatment Melbourne Australia


Eczema is a skin condition, which mainly looks like an allergy. It is essentially skin inflammation disorder. It is also referred to as dermatitis as they are very similar condition.  Eczema is used for a wide array of different skin conditions and thus there are varying treatment methods that are available as well. The symptoms can vary from mild rashes and swelling of skin to even big blisters and bleeding as well.








Causes of Eczema or Dermatitis



Currently, there are no specific details regarding what causes eczema. Ideally, it can be caused owing to a combination of one or more of the following reasons.


  • Genetic disorder
  • Immune system troubles.
  • Problems in the functioning of skin barrier
  • Allergic reactions
  • Environmental causes



There are different types of eczema and it is important to know that it is not contagious. There is a common misnomer among people that eczema can spread by coming in touch; however, it is not so. Also, it is often found running in families from one generation to another which gives us the hint that it is likely to be a genetic disorder.


Symptoms of Eczema or Dermatitis


Eczema or dermatitis can exhibit different kind of symptoms based upon the exact degree of inflammation and the type of eczema people are suffering from.


Some of the common symptoms that one can spot for those who are suffering from this disease include the following.


  • Itchiness
  • Red skin
  • Dry skin
  • Swollen areas
  • Soreness
  • Pain



These are the general symptoms which you will find; regardless of the place on the skin where eczema has occurred. As the spots tend to itch, sometimes people can scratch it a lot and this in turn can lead to secondary infections as well.


Atopic dermatitis


Atopic dermatitis is more common during childhood and then it may disappear only to recur again during adulthood. If such people contract eczema herpeticum simplex virus, it can lead to a severe secondary infection which will cause immense inflammation and burning of skin as well.


Dyshidrotic eczema 


Dyshidrotic eczema mainly leaves blisters on the skin. It is commonly found on the palms of your hand, the sides of your finger and even near the soles as well. Sometimes, the skin may peel off and itching and burning is fairly common.


Nummular eczema


Nummular eczema mainly exhibits signs like itchy coin shaped areas and the limbs and torso region can emit some discharge as well.


Stasis dermatitis


Stasis dermatitis is another form of eczema and it mainly occurs near the lower legs and the ankles. The skin will get scaly and inflamed as well.



The Ayurvedic Concept of Eczema or Dermatitis


As per ayurvedic principles, eczema is essentially an aggravation of pitta dosha. Pitta mainly emanates from the skin and it heats up the toxin and creates ama. Ayurveda believes that it is these heated toxins which end up accumulating on the body tissues. Owing to this action, the toxins penetrate in a lot deeper level and leads to eczema.


Ayurveda believes that to treat eczema, pitta must be pacified and to do so, one would need to improve the digestive system of the body and cleanse the toxins out from your body.

  • I consulted Pure Herbal Ayurved Clinic for my teenage son to improve his height. He was 4.11 at 13. I was very worried as we are not tall parents and I thought to do something natural soon before its too late. I took a phone consultation with Dr Saini at Pure Herbal Ayurved Clinic. Range of dietary, lifestyle changes were suggested and some Ayurvedic medicine was posted to me. I am very happy to say that with in six months, my son has shown a significant improvement in height. His family and friends have all acknowledged the improvement in height. I highly recommend Pure Herbal Ayurved Clinic for natural height improvements.

  • I had an absolute life changing experience with Taking an Ayurvedic approach for coming out of my son’s eczema. We were struggling with eczema and other skin concerns for my 4 year old almost since his birth. Had tried all sorts of creams available in the market but every time the flareups were coming back . It is only until Someone recommended us Dr. Gurnam Saini and we were put on Ayurvedic healing path. In 4-5 months his eczema started going away; some stubborn eczema spots disappeared with no flareups, itchiness . I will highly recommend Ayurvedic holistic healing over western medicines.

  • I thoroughly recommend Ayurveda Doctor Gurnam Saini! He is fantastic. I was feeling depressed with low moods and low energy, I'd put on weight and was experiencing hair loss. I saw results with my energy and mood after only a few days of treatment and after three months I have been gradually losing weight and my hair is becoming thicker and fuller. His Ayurveda herbs and supplements definitely do the trick, and his dietary recommendations are pretty easy to implement into your lifestyle. If you're feeling like your overall health and well-being could be better I recommend giving this a try.

  • My experience with herbal Ayurveda was positive. I found a tremendous amount of healing with this therapy after suffering from bronchitis and arthritic pain for years. The herbal massage was the best thing I ever did. I stopped my medication, the bronchitis healed and my arthritis improved remarkably. I highly recommend it and I look forward to more treatments.
