Natural Remedy for Eczema

Salt Therapy is a 100% natural therapy which may assist in alleviating the symptoms of eczema.

At Salt Sanctuary our salt rooms have been specifically designed to help sufferers of respiratory and skin conditions, such as eczema, relieve their symptoms and enhance overall health in a comfortable and relaxing environment.

What is Eczema?

Eczema is a form of dermatitis and is a name given to a range of persistent skin conditions. Eczema often presents as dry, red and itchy skin and can be characterized by one or more of these symptoms:

  • Redness
  • Skin edema (swelling)
  • Itchiness
  • Dryness
  • Flakiness
  • Blistering
  • Cracking and/or bleeding of the skin
  • Weeping or oozing

According to the Eczema Association of Australia, eczema affects 1 in 3 Australians at some stage throughout their lives and is most commonly seen in children.

Types of Eczema

There are a number of different categories of eczema with the two most common being atopic eczema and contact dermatitis.

Atopic eczema is an allergic disease believed to have a hereditary component and is commonly found in families with a history of eczema, asthma or hay fever. It manifests as a dry, itchy rash and is mostly noticeable on the inside of elbows, behind the knees, neck, head and scalp and the buttocks.  It is caused by a combination of genetics and contact with a variety  of allergens, such as:

  • Food allergy, especially to cow’s milk, eggs and peanuts in particular for infants
  • House dust mites for older children and adults

Contact dermatitis results from direct contact with an allergen or irritant such as poison ivy or contact with chemicals. Contact eczema is curable providing the offending substance can be avoided and removed from your environment.

How Salt Therapy works in the treatment of Eczema

Patients with eczema receive the best results when the affected skin can be exposed to the microclimate of the Salt Room. The concentration of dry saline aerosol in the air has strong anti-bacterial and anti-fungal properties. Salt has been shown to have anti-inflammatory benefits and greatly assists in the reduction of skin edema and irritation. In addition to this, Salt has been shown to have beneficial effects on hair and blood circulation of the skin. 

Salt Therapy for Children

Eczema commonly affects children who can suffer greatly from the constant skin irritation and uncontrollable scratching this promotes. It is well documented that children respond rapidly and more intensively than adults to most forms of therapy and this is also the case with Salt Therapy. The benefit of Salt Therapy is that it is 100% drug free and natural, which is ideal for children. There are no age limits for children undertaking Salt Therapy and a parent or guardian is permitted in the therapy room to supervise their child at all times.
