Acne in women is due to a variety of causes and ayurvedic treatment looks at treating the underlying cause. Acne at an adolescent age requires one specific treatment regime whereas acne due to PCOS requires an entirely different set of ayurvedic therapy.
Thus, the ayurvedic practitioner looks at your body holistically to ascertain the root cause of your acne. This involves identifying your ayurvedic body type and the dosha combinations involved to specify a customised ayurvedic skin care regimen for you.
Eczema or dermatitis can take various forms of skin inflammations. Some instances are acute in nature whereas some others are chronic in nature.
Eczema can be triggered by a variety of reasons. Environmentally caused eczema can be due chemical or metal irritants. Such eczema could be localised and a typical case is eczema caused by a watch strap.
Allergic eczema, however, can impact any body parts. In women, creases of the skin such as the folds inside the elbows or under the breasts are often affected.
Key symptoms during acute dermatitis
• Weeping and oozing
Key symptoms during chronic dermatitis
• Redness of skin
