Eczema

Airsonett is an evidence-based, non-pharmaceutical treatment for atopic asthma. Patient cases indicate that Airsonett may also be an effective treatment for patients with atopic eczema and allergic rhinitis.

Treatment with Airsonett has no side effects and protects the patient from the exposure to allergens that occurs at night while the patient is in his or her own bed. Airsonett creates an area of radically reduced allergens in the patient’s breathing zone. The treatment is non-invasive and has an excellent safety record.

Eczema, also known as dermatitis, is a skin condition causing inflammation and intense irritation. Eczema symptoms tend to be caused by dry skin. The skin becomes hot, itchy and inflamed.

In young children, patches of dry, scaly skin, or (less commonly) wet, weepy skin, can appear anywhere on the body. In older children, the eczema usually appears on wrists, ankles, elbows, knees and face, including the eyelids.

The scratching is hard to avoid since the main distressing symptom of eczema is unbearable itching but, once the skin gets broken and cracked, infections can set in causing even more discomfort.

This skin condition can affect any age range, and it is thought to be caused by a defect in the skin barrier that makes it more susceptible to inflammation and allows allergens to enter the body.

If individuals are atopic they are more prone to atopic eczema (also known as atopic dermatitis), that is, eczema caused by allergies.
