Why you should use Magnesium for treating Eczema
Eczema is a term for a range of medical conditions that cause the skin to become inflamed or irritated. The most common type of eczema is known as atopic dermatitis, or atopic eczema. Atopic refers to a group of diseases with an often inherited tendency to develop other allergic conditions, such as asthma and hay fever.
Eczema affects about 10% to 20% of infants and about 3% of adults and children. Most infants who develop the condition outgrow it by their tenth birthday, while some people continue to have symptoms on and off throughout life. With proper treatment, the disease often can be controlled.
Low levels of magnesium may contribute to dry skin as well. Providing zinc and magnesium supplements to mother or baby may solve the problem. Be sure to talk to your baby's doctor about correct dosing before giving your baby a vitamin supplement.
