Eczema Treatment & Causes
Eczema is a condition that causes red, dry, itchy and cracked skin. It mainly affects children, with 15-20% of school-age children suffering from the condition, although it can occur in adults too (between 2-10% of adults suffer from eczema).
Eczema mainly occurs on the face, neck, hands, wrists, ankles and behind the knees and elbows.

Natural eczema treatment at the Skin and Nutrition Clinic
The Skin and Nutrition Clinic is different to other skin specialists in that it takes a completely natural and comprehensive inside-out approach to eczema (and all other skin conditions treated), to harness the body’s own immune system and healing potential.
Uniquely, the Skin and Nutrition Clinic assesses each patient’s condition on an individual basis rather than using generic methods. The clinic’s main aim is to investigate the underlying cause of your eczema to therefore treat the source of the symptoms, rather than just treating the symptoms alone. *
*Results may vary from person to person
Your personal history and family health history are assessed, your skin condition is evaluated using the clinic’s cutting edge Skin Analyser and any potential microbiological and underlying causes of eczema are explored, before a personalised program is created to treat the cause and the condition. Blood tests may be required to investigate potential underlying causes further. This program focuses on investigating all potential allergies and/or intolerances and other possible underlying and microbiological causes, dietary advice, and potential in-house clinic skin treatments and your own bespoke systemic and topical medicinal plant-based formulations.
Any eczema skincare provided will be completely bespoke-made by the Skin and Nutrition Clinic Phyto-Pharmacy to your skin’s own requirements, to maximise results. This includes natural soap substitutes and emollients, customised Phytomedical anti-inflammatory skin treatments and bespoke natural Immune support.
