SKIN HEALTH AND IM­MUNE SYS­TEM

The Sun (Malaysia) - - SUNBIZ -

Ac­cord­ing to the An­nals of In­ter­nal Medicine 2011, eczema is a ge­netic con­di­tion, which is the re­sult of ab­nor­mal­i­ties within the skin bar­rier and a hy­per­sen­si­tive im­mune sys­tem. Hence, treat­ment op­tions would have to ad­dress both the health of the skin bar­rier (use of mois­turis­ers to pre­vent the skin from be­com­ing overtly dry) as well as the hy­per­sen­si­tive im­mune sys­tem (re­bal­anc­ing the ten­dency of the im­mune sys­tem to be hy­per­sen­si­tive).
