The Scratch That Itches

Your skin is a very good indicator of what is going on inside.

With eczema, most doctors will prescribe a cream to help to stop the itching and redness. While this is sometimes needed in an acute situation, it is not a good long-term solution.

Cortisone cream can have these side effects over the long-term:

  • Thinning of the skin
  • Easy bruising
  • Folliculitis (infection of hair follicle)
  • Discoloration of the skin

To get more than a skin deep approach, Naturopathic Doctors look at the health of the digestive system, liver and kidney function. We will also ask questions about what the patient is eating, drinking and if they are having regular bowel movements.  The goal is to provide options other than cortisone cream to help your skin whether the one suffering is a baby or adult.
