Stress can be difficult to manage because often you don’t even realise you’re stressed or you feel unable to control the source of the stress perhaps when it’s caused by work, family or other relationships.
As an eczema sufferer myself I have dedicated this page to helping you understand the cause of your stress, how it can be related to your eczema and how this awareness can help you learn to prevent another flare up………..
The association between stress and itch has been demonstrated in many research studies which confirm the brain-skin connection. Recent advances in neuroimmunology (the study of the nervous system, and immunology, the study of the immune system) have shed new light on the phenomenon of the stress-induced “itch-scratch cycle”
What is Atopic Eczema….
and what can spark the onset of a flare-up?
The Itch-Scratch Cycle….
and the role of the parasympathetic nervous system in both stress and itch is beginning to emerge.
An Amygdala Hijack….
and how it’s linked to the fight or flight response.
