In this segment, they introduce Heather a patient who’s lived with eczema since the age of 27. As well as, dermatologist Dr. Tina Bhutani.
Dr. Bhutani believes that there are two things that cause eczema – 1. A defective skin barrier. 2. A highly sensitive immune system that reacts to even the smallest irritants and allergens in the environment.
She mentions that having atopic aermatitis isn’t just about the rash on the surface of your skin, but it goes deeper into the inflammatory process inside the body.
Kudos to The Real for highlighting eczema and Eczema Awareness Month.
While I don’t 100 percent agree with all the methods of treatment mentioned, I appreciate the awareness being raised.
