Atopic eczema which is the most common type of eczema is not a psychological disease. However, it can be frustrating and cause anxiety and stress which can be a trigger for eczema flare-ups.
In some minimal cases, psychological support may be required, but ideally, you need to find a way to manage the stress issues at home. We're living in a fast-paced world and typically eating foods that don't support us whilst we're having stressful periods. So, the key thing is to eat foods that are not only immune-boosting but also mood-boosting and energy sufficient for us so that we're able to manage stress better.
By managing your diet and eating anti-inflammatory, plant-based foods, you're able to eliminate eczema triggers and reduce stress greatly.
Some of the anti-inflammatory foods that you can introduce into your diet are:
Dark leafy greens,
Plant-based milk rather than cows milk,
Irish or Caribbean sea moss
Sea moss has 92 minerals and it nourishes the cells, it boosts the immune system and it's great for iodine which boosts brain health. That is one of the best types of foods that you can have internally as well as externally and it's easily preparable.
I used it on my daughter to calm down the angry eczema symptoms and give her a bit of relief but it also soothed and healed the lacerations.
