Which IV Therapy Treatment Helps Eczema?

Living with eczema can be challenging and unpredictable. Painful and unsightly patches may flare up at the most inconvenient times. You can lather on all the ointments and lotions and still not get relief. IV therapy is different than traditional treatments, delivering the vitamins and nutrients directly into the bloodstream to promote healthy and hydrated skin. Learn more about how IV therapy could potentially treat your eczema symptoms in this guide.

What Is Eczema?

Eczema is a common skin condition that affects just over 10% of the U.S. population. There are seven types of eczema, and atopic dermatitis is the most common. Symptoms of eczema may include:

  • Dry, itchy skin
  • A swollen and inflamed rash
  • Scaly and discolored patches
  • Blisters that ooze and may become infected

People with eczema often experience extreme discomfort and embarrassment over the appearance of their skin. Eczema can appear on any part of the body, but it’s most common on visible areas like your hands, arms, legs, face and scalp. There are times when eczema symptoms are less noticeable with unpredictable flare-ups.

Eczema is caused by a combination of genetic and environmental factors like stress and pollution. External irritants like soap, detergent, pollen and dry weather can trigger an eczema flare-up. Severe eczema symptoms have also been linked to food allergies. There is no cure for eczema, but there are many treatments that can help relieve your symptoms.

Can IV Therapy Help With Eczema?

Can IV Therapy Help With Eczema?

Eczema is often treated with a combination of lifestyle changes, over-the-counter ointments and prescription medications. Eczema IV treatment is an innovative therapy that treats eczema symptoms from the inside out. Though IV therapy can’t cure eczema, it helps restore essential fluids, vitamins, electrolytes and antioxidants to rebalance your skin and alleviate your symptoms.

How IV Therapy Can Help Relieve Eczema

Eczema IV packages contain a mix of vitamins and supplements to help ease your symptoms. Here are the ingredients that can help provide relief:

1. Glutathione

An autoimmune disease is a condition where the body mistakenly attacks healthy cells. Researchers believe that several types of eczema could be a result of an autoimmune reaction leading to chronic inflammation. Glutathione is a crucial antioxidant that helps protect the skin from an autoimmune response. Chronic inflammation causes oxidative stress, which weakens your body’s antioxidant defenses by reducing the natural glutathione levels in your blood.

At Mobile IV Medics, you can add glutathione to any drip package to boost your antioxidant defenses and potentially relieve your eczema symptoms.

2. Vitamin C

Vitamin C is a crucial nutrient that promotes skin health. It boosts your immune system and helps produce vital collagen to keep your skin looking and feeling good. Healthy skin requires high levels of vitamin C to protect you and prevent clogged pores. Vitamin C deficiency is common in people with eczema. Vitamin C supplements are a safe and easy way to replenish your skin. IV treatments provide a boost of vitamin C and other nutrients much faster than oral supplements.

3. Electrolytes

Healthy skin is covered with an acidic barrier that protects against irritants and retains moisture. Scientists believe that people with eczema have higher pH levels that leave the skin vulnerable to moisture loss, dirt and bacteria. As a result, their skin is dry and prone to infection.

IV therapy contains electrolytes to help relieve this issue. Electrolytes are essential minerals like potassium, magnesium, calcium and sodium that do a lot to keep your body healthy and functioning properly. A healthy dose of electrolytes also helps keep your pH levels in check. IV therapy is loaded with electrolytes for eczema to replenish your body, strengthen your skin and help keep you hydrated.

4. Zinc

Zinc is a natural anti-inflammatory to help soothe swollen and itchy skin. It also helps your body produce epithelium — a new layer of skin to cover your wounds. Although more research is needed, studies show that zinc supplements could treat and prevent eczema flare-ups. IV therapy can deliver a boost of zinc to replenish your system and help your skin recover.

5. Saline

Saline is the base ingredient of all IV therapy packages. It’s a mix of sodium chloride and water to help your body absorb the vitamins and nutrients you’ve chosen for your treatment. IV fluid also helps hydrate your body and restore moisture to your dry, itchy skin.
