Why another post on eczema in Malaysia? 

If you are overwhelmed by what you have read about eczema on the internet, you are in the right place.

The most common type of eczema is known as atopic dermatitis, or atopic eczema.

Read more about eczema or atopic dermatitis from credible websites.

Here are some recommended links from WebMD –
In this article:
What Are the Symptoms of Eczema?
What Causes Eczema?
How Is Eczema Diagnosed?
How Is Eczema Treated?
How Can Eczema Flare-ups Be Prevented?

WebMD’s Alexa ranking (under Health category): No.2

If you would like to check whether the site that is promoting the ‘ezcema cure all treatments’ for you or your baby’s eczema, try verifying their ‘Alexa ranking’ and compare it with WebMD.

Is there a cure for eczema or Atopic Dermatitis?

As a medical doctor, I would like to be direct and upfront with the question above. There is no cure for eczema at the moment, however you could manage your’s and your baby’s eczema to a point where it becomes non-visible.

If you still believe in some of the tooth-fairy folklore self-help ‘how I cure my eczema ebooks’, you will not find us recommending any of those stuff in this post. Most of these ‘alternative’ sites will start by agreeing that there is no medical cure for eczema and how superficial your medical doctor and your dermatologists are. Then they will bring out their ‘cure all from inside out treatment’ bla bla bla…

Seriously, there is just too much of these non-credible and non-proven stuff on the internet. I am just not sure how else I could warn you but ulitmately it’s your decision and so, decide wisely.

Just to substantiate the ‘no-cure’ claim –

“While there’s no cure for eczema, you can reduce flaky, dry skin by using products infused with hyaluronic acid…”

Hi all. A close friend of mine is suffering from eczema. She does not like to use the steroid-based creams due to the side-effects that come with prolonged usages. Currently she is keeping watch on what she eats and using some other cream like aloe vera cream. Is there any good methods to treat or at least suppress eczema?

Please take note that while everyone seems to be dishing out their own ‘expert’ advice in local forums, be aware that most of the members are sharing their own experiences and may or may not be applicable to you or your child’s eczema.

Eczema Article by The Star Online:
A survey reveals low awareness of eczema in Malaysia.
ECZEMA is a chronic, inflammatory skin disease marked by intense itching, red rashes, and accompanying skin lesions. It is a common skin condition which afflicts 10-20% of children and 1-3% of adults worldwide, and two in every 10 individuals in Malaysia.

Although eczema is a common skin disease, there is still a general lack of awareness about it. In 2011, LEO Pharma conducted a research study among eczema patients and eczema caregivers in Malaysia via The Research Partnership, a global pharmaceutical research company…
