Hay fever, eczema and asthma

Hay fever, eczema and asthma are diseases that are always on the rise and affect ever more people. A genetic defect of the skin may also play a role in the development of allergies. This is due to a genetic lack of filaggrin, which is a key protein of the skin barrier. Of the German population about eight per cent of the filaggrin gene variants carry within them. Thus they have a threefold higher risk of suffering from atopic dermatitis. Nor can thus increase the risk of hay fever and asthma, cancer.

Hay fever, eczema and asthma are not only annoying illnesses they also need treatment. Asthma can be very dangerous when it comes to an attack with shortness of breath. Which can develop into a cardiovascular failure and death of untreated.

Eczema affects children is it an inflammatory disease of the skin. The predisposition is innate. Many different triggers affect the changeable appearance. Approximately 11-13% of all children in Germany are affected by atopic dermatitis, on the half already in infancy or babyhood. Usually the disease is improving at such an early start to the enrollment significantly. Eczema affects children but need not despair yet. The eczema can get well with a consistent treatment under control. Often, those affected can lead normal lives without major complaints. That parents and children understand the disease is just as critical to the success of the treatment with the active participation. Is in families already known that atopic dermatitis occurs, may already be taken during pregnancy a precaution.

And psychological factors can trigger the symptoms and influence the course. You are not the real cause. In the past has often expressed the opinion that the atopic dermatitis is the consequence of a disturbed mother-child relationship. This view is outdated. But the disease can actually cause a considerable burden on the entire family. An eczema-training can help parents and children to learn everything about the disease in order to confidently use it.
