Colloidal Silver For Eczema or Atopic Dermatitis Care

For those looking for something to assist with eczema or atopic dermatitis, you probably know the symptoms of the skin disease very well – red from inflammation, your skin is dry with flaky patches. Therefore you’ll be relieved to find a wonderful aid for eczema called colloidal silver.


The actual cause of eczema is not yet understood by doctors and scientists, though it is speculated to be the result of an over-active immune system which responds very aggressively to irritants.

These irritants could be anything from chemicals found in cleaning products or body products to food allergies or sudden changes in temperature.

Though a pharmaceutical treatment for eczema has not yet been discovered, there is a treatment which could be very beneficial to those who suffer from the symptoms of eczema.

Dermatitis is a general term for any type of inflammation of the skin. Many cases of dermatitis are simply the result of allergies.  This type of condition is called allergic or contact dermatitis.

Skin inflammation may be linked to contact with perfumes, cosmetic, rubber, medicated creams and ointments, latex or plants. Whatever the irritant, if the skin remains in constant contact with it, the dermatitis is likely to spread and become more severe.
