Atopic dermatitis (eczema) is a condition that makes your skin red and itchy. It’s common in children but can occur at any age. Atopic dermatitis is long-lasting (chronic) and tends to flare periodically. It may be accompanied by asthma or hay fever. No cure has been found for atopic dermatitis in allopathy.
Since food is one of the causes of eczema, it is important to be cautious about the diet. Generally, a person with eczema can have a normal diet, but without the specific allergic factor. Depending on the constitution of the person, he or she can be allergic to just about any kind of food. Hence, one of the steps of diagnosing eczema is to identify if any foodstuff is the cause of eczema. If so, then that food must be eliminated from the diet.
Furthermore, people with eczema must keep away from the following foods:
• Salad vegetables like cucumbers and radish must not be used.
• Fruits like oranges, watermelons, and papayas must be avoided as they are contra-indications to eczema.
• Ice-creams and cold drinks must be strictly avoided.
• Several spices and oils can aggravate eczema. Hence they must be taken with moderation.
• Nuts are harmful to eczema, especially cashew nuts.
• Foods with a high mineral content such as ginger, onion and ladies finger (okra) must be curtailed in the diet.
• Salt must be reduced in the diet.
• Sour foods must be avoided. This includes all pickles, curds, etc.
• Mustard is a strict no-no.
• Bitter tastes are useful. These are obtained from vegetables such as bitter gourd, bitter drumstick, and flowers of the neem tree.
• Turmeric has a soothing effect on the skin. It must be used liberally in flavoring the food. Turmeric is also useful if it is applied locally over the affected parts.
