Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

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.

Synopsis:

Rid yourself of the itchy rash of eczema forever! With nearly 30 million people afflicted with eczema in the United States alone, it's no wonder it's the #1 reason people visit the dermatologist. Eczema-Free for Life is the most comprehensive and up-to-date resource available for eczema sufferers, written by a practicing dermatologist. Get answers to all your questions, including which skin care products are best, how to control the occurrence of flares, and how to stop the itching now. Powerful treatments are being developed as a result of new research that has identified the genes responsible for eczema. Dr. Nasir clearly explains these breakthroughs and offers advice on caring for children with eczema, ways to cope with the psychological impact of the disorder, effective methods to eczema-proof your home, and which holistic remedies are safe and reliable. Finally, real solutions that will help you live eczema-free.
