What is atopy?
Atopy is derived from the ancient Greek word Atopos.
Atpopos has the meaning of 'strange,' 'abnormal.'
Atopic dermatitis is a chronic, recurrent inflammatory skin disease that starts in infancy or childhood and is accompanied by pruritus (itching), dry skin, and characteristic eczema. In infancy, it begins with eczema on the spreading part of the face and limbs, but it grows and appears as a form of eczema on the part where the arm bends and bends behind the knee. In many cases, it tends to improve naturally. In adults, lichenification appears in which the skin folds up, and eczema is more common on the face than in the pediatric period. Atopic dermatitis is an increasing worldwide trend, with a prevalence of 20% of the population.
Cause of atopy
The cause of atopic dermatitis has not been known yet.
Because clinical symptoms vary widely from dry skin to eczema, the cause of the disease can not be explained in any one way, but environmental factors, genetic predisposition, immunological reactions, and skin barrier abnormalities are considered to be the main causes. Environmental factors include environmental pollution caused by industrialization, increase in the use of food additives, increase in use of carpet, bed, sofa due to the western type of residence, the cause of allergy such as house dust mites due to rise in room temperature (allergen ). Also, as more and more pets are raised indoors, it may cause exposure to the causative substances. On the other hand, the fact that atopic dermatitis is genetically affected can be seen from the fact that many people with atopic dermatitis have a family history.
Severe pruritus (itching), dry skin and skin lesions are the main symptoms.
Dry skin causes itching and worsens it. It is intermittently itchy during the day but usually gets worse in the early evening or the middle of the night. Scratching and itching will result in eczematous skin lesions (pathological changes) and a vicious cycle in which these lesions develop again and cause more severe itching.
The distribution and response patterns of skin lesions are somewhat different depending on the patient's age. In infants, lesions are acute eczema, mostly with dirt or scabs. They are mostly handsome on the face and head, rough on the body, dry, and often on the outside of the limbs. In childhood from 2 to 10 years of age, it often appears on the folds of the limbs, on the folds of the neck, and in the form of dry eczema rather than on the face. On the other hand, Asian people may have severe papillary eczema that does not heal after the teenage years. Atopic dermatitis often resolves or disappears with age, but after it has improved, it tends to be easily itchy or irritated due to specific substances or stimuli.
In many cases, hand eczema appears in adulthood. If atopic dermatitis persists until adulthood, the skin symptoms of the body improve, while the face tends to have erythema, redness, and eczema, and the folded area has a long, scratched, thick skin. Adults are not only chronic eczema, but they are also acute lesions on chronological eczema, where the dirt and scabs sit on eczema over time.
The itching that occurs throughout the atopy is the most painful symptom of atopic patients
The most common symptom of inflammatory skin disease is inflammation, which is a measure of inflammation. The red spot is erythema, the redness of the skin is reddening, the skin is red, and the red state is red.
If the capillary stagnation causes the blood circulation and nutrition problems of skin cells, skin cells will not regenerate normally and will be damaged. The keratin thus can be said to be the grave of damaged skin cells caused by the blood stagnation.
The waste of the human body must be discharged spontaneously through the pores. However, in the case of atopy, it is not a normal pathway, and it can not be discharged together with sweat. Then, the skin cells are destroyed by the inflammation of the skin, and the disorder and body fluid in the cell are directly infiltrated into the skin.
Dermatophagoensis is a symptom of rough skin like the bark of the skin and thick skin like elephant skin. It is a secondary skin condition caused by repeated scratching habits due to itching of the skin and is common in people with chronic atopic dermatitis.
Pigmentation is a symptom of black circulation in the process of blood circulation failure, subcutaneous blood oxidation, redness in the form of eosinophilia, or recurrent inflammation of the skin caused by repeated scraping habits.
White skin graft donation
White skin fever This is a phenomenon where a part of the erythema is observed as a white line when it is scratched. While normal skin changes to red when it is scratched, white skin graft donation is caused by the pressure of the blood when the blood is stagnated on the skin, and the pressure is applied by the hand.
Immunotherapy and nutritional therapy
Based on the results of the THL Test, Mori Clinic combines immunotherapy and nutritional therapy to restore the patient's health and prevents recurrence by eliminating underlying causes. When the site is small at first, and the number is small, you need to be properly treated. If the site gets bigger and bigger, it is likely to turn into a hard-to-treat disease that is difficult to treat.
Atopy & Allergy is a so-called autoimmune disease in which your immune system is malfunctioning. Therefore, correcting the malfunctioning of your immunity is the fundamental treatment. By turning the abnormal immune system into a normal immune system through vaccination, you can treat the underlying atopy & allergy and drastically lower the recurrence rate.
Patients with atopic and allergic diseases have a lot of nutritional imbalance when they are examined through various tests other than excessive stress. It contributes to correcting the immune system through proper nutrition treatment.
Do steroid - free treatment.
Steroids are the principle of relieving symptoms by dropping the autoimmune response. However, the side effects of steroids themselves can cause recurring recurrence, skin inflammation, aggravation of skin inflammation, skin thinning, hypertension during long-term use, diabetes, and hormonal abnormalities.
