Rid yourself of eczema forever! Based on new research, this book has everything the millions of eczema sufferers need to know to free themselves from unbearable itching and unsightly rashes.

Eczema–Free For Life contains the latest medical information about the cause, symptoms, and treatments of eczema and is written both for adults with eczema and the parents of children with eczema. In addition to the most recent medical research, Dr. Nasir offers guidance for home care and ways to cope with the psychological impact of the disorder. None of the popular books about eczema currently on the market is written by a practicing dermatologist and none is based on up–to–date science. New research has conclusively demonstrated that eczema is the result of the abnormal development of some twenty genes responsible for controlling how the skin interacts with the environment. When the skin's barrier function fails, irritants pass through to underlying tissue and trigger the itchy rash that characterizes eczema. Dr. Nasir will explain new and more powerful treatments that are being developed based on these new discoveries as well as point out reliable holistic remedies that have worked for centuries.

Reviews

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very helpful guide Written by a dermatologist who clearly understands eczema. He shows how to reduce the incidence of outbreaks through a layered approach, which includes simple lifestyle factors that a string of dermatologists never mentioned to me, but which helped me immensely. He also takes you through the complete background of the disease so you understand exactly why it manifests as it does. Treatments are also fully explained. This is an excellent book to help the eczema sufferer improve her quality of life, as well as quality of visits to one's own dermatologist, since you will know what to ask for and what results you should expect.
