Leaky gut syndrome is often implicated. In this, the gut lining becomes inflamed so that allergic particles of food pass through the gut lining and reach the rest the skin, where they cause inflammation (chronic dermatitis) due to release of  inflammatory cytokines and histamines. 


Treatment of leaky gut syndrome includes prebiotics and probiotics,  treating intestinal infections such as candidiasis (fungal infection) and giardia lamblia) (micro parasite infection), supporting the immune system,  modern homeopathy for dermatitis, identifying and excluding poorly tolerated foods and supporting the liver, which is the main organ of detoxification.


There are no 'magic bullets' for chronic dermatitis!

This can be caused by airborne allergens, shoe rubber, house dust mite, washing powders and fabric conditioners. Materials handled at work or recreation can also be involved.



Inherited eczema is associated  with miasms (a homoeopathic concept) can be helped with selected constitutional (psionic) homeopathy. Often tuberculosis in a forebear is involved.
