Eczema is the name that is given to a broad clinical variety of common, itchy inflammatory skin diseases. It can range from redness to a profusion of signs with blistering, weeping and crusting or thickened pigmented areas of skin with scaling.

It involves both the dermis and epidermis layer of the skin some cases of atopic eczema can itch severely, some moderately and some not at all. Eczematous skin completely reverts to normal on healing. 

In the UK up to 1/5 of school children and 1 in 12 adults suffer from Eczema.

So what is the cause?

The causes of Eczema are many and varied and differ from person to person. It is thought that the tendency the environment and what we consume can affect Eczema for example caffeine, alcohol, food, pesticides, pollen, dust, certain plants, animal fur, food additives, drugs, industrial and chemicals irritants such as products like shampoos and detergents which contain certain chemicals.

Ever wondered what acne is and what causes it? Well we have the answers
for you:

Acne is a common inflammatory disorder of sebaceous glands.  These glands produce oil, which can get trapped as it travels to the skin’s surface, this is where the problem begins as the pores then become clogged.

The areas most often affected are the chest, shoulders, back and the face. It tends to be in these areas because they have larger oil producing glands than other areas of the body.

The hallmarks of Acne are spots and skin eruptions such as blackheads (with
papules), white heads (pustules), raised red blemishes with semi-solid centres and localised bacterial infection beneath the skin’s surface.

So what causes you to have acne?

- Acne can be triggered by a response of the skin to levels of male hormones ‘androgens’ (masculinising hormones present in men and women). These hormones control how much oil or sebum is secreted from the sebaceous glands.
- In women menstrual periods or pregnancy can create acne-producing hormonal imbalances.
- Emotional stress can make the problem worse by triggering the body’s adrenal glands to become overactive which in turn boosts sebum production.
- Certain medications can affect hormonal levels like contraceptives and steroids.
- Bad digestion due to lack of friendly bacteria because of a disturbance to the natural balance of flora in the gut.
- Toxins in the body, caused by a variety of things including constipation, bacterial or yeast over growth (candida in the gut) or food sensitivity.

To help prevent acne you should keep your skin clean and maintain a level of moisture and free from bacteria that might get into a clogged pore.

Cosmetic chemicals found in breast tumours - (12:24 12 January 04 New Scientist.com news service)

Preservative chemicals found in samples of breast tumours probably came from underarm deodorants, UK scientists have claimed. Their analysis of 20 breast tumours found high concentrations of para-hydroxybenzoic acids (parabens) in 18 samples. Parabens can mimic the hormone estrogen, which is known to play a role in the development of breast cancers. The preservatives are used in many cosmetics and some foods to increase their shelf-life.
