Hello Tutor Store!!

I missed you all when I was on my break. My trip was uneventful and fun and I've gotten over my 10 year fear of flying over the Atlantic and going to England. Thank you for your encouragement! It went a long way toward my confidence on the flight. 🙂
I start a new class tomorrow but i have a project that's not related to class that I will need help with. It's due before Friday, September 18th, 2015 (Morning) and it's it should be two or three pages long and written in APA format with in-text citations and references. I will provide a few links to credible sources, please find additional credible sources (org, gov., edu.), that would be very helpful.

The paper is about the disease "Eczema".

For this paper, i need:
1. What is Eczema?
2. Who gets Eczema. How is Eczema triggered?
3. How many people are affected by Eczema in the United States? Worldwide?
4. How is Eczema treated?
5. What are the negative side affects of prescription medications for Eczema?
6. How much money is spent on the treatment of Eczema?
7. Provide online articles of ordinary people who have come up with eczema treatments of their own. What are their stories? How much did they make selling their treatments? (I've provided links).
That should be it. If you can think of additional helpful information about Eczema (that i haven't thought of), I'd appreciate it.  🙂
Thank you so much and I'm so glad to be back working with you!! Awaiting the invoice. Hugs and bless you!! 🙂
Eczema: Causes, Triggers and TreatmentWhat is Eczema?

Eczema is derived from a Greek word, which means to effervesce or to bubble or to boil over. Eczema is called medically as atopic dermatitis and is an itchy and red rash, which appears on any part of the body or the entire body (Eczema, n.d.). Eczema can occur in children and adults and even in small babies. Eczema is usually diagnosed at a very young age and very rarely it can begin in adulthood. The eczema rash can appear different and it can also affect different parts of body time to time, for example one time it can appear on the knee, the other on the neck or wrists or ankles or sometimes even all over the body. It differs in severity and can be mild, moderate or severe. One of tough situations associated with eczema is the itch-scratch cycle, which makes the rash even worse. Causes and Trigger Factors People of any age can get eczema, but it is usually diagnosed when the eczema patients are young or just babies. It continues into adulthood, but sometimes the severity reduces as children become adults. The causes of eczema can be allergic or genetic, but still the exact causes are not known yet. Eczema is triggered due to many factors. Some of the common triggers are:

1. Irritants: such as bubble bath, disinfectants, soaps and detergents and juices of meats, vegetables, or fruits.

2. Allergens: such as house dust mites, molds, dandruff, pets, and pollens

3. Microbes: such as bacteria, viruses and certain fungi.

4. Foods: such as eggs, nuts and seeds, dairy products, wheat and soy products.

5. Stress and hormones (Causes & Triggers, n.d.).

People Affected by Eczema in the US and the World

The national prevalence calculated using the 2003 National Survey of Children’s Health of a sample of 102, 353 children of 17 years and above shows that the prevalence ranged from 8.7 percent to 18.1 percent between states and districts and the highest prevalence was found in the East Coast States, as well as Idaho, Utah and Nevada (Shaw, Currie, Koudelka, & Simpson, 2011). Atopic eczema is the commonest dermatoses with a prevalence of 2-5 percent in children and around 10 percent among young adults (Ring & Darsow, 2015).

Treatment of Eczema

Eczema can be treated using different methods , such as bathing, moisturizing, topical

corticosteroids, phototherapy, topical calcineurin inhibitors, psychodermatology,

immunosuppressants and alternative therapies , such as bleach baths, vinegar baths and wet

wraps (Treatment , n.d.).

Negative side effects of Prescription Medicines for Eczema

Corticosteroids can cause skin atrophy or thinning of skin and prolonged use of

corticosteroids can cause stretch marks. Patients who are under-treated can develop thick skin or

darkening of skin due to rubbing and scratching. Glaucoma and cataracts can occur due to long

use of corticosteroids. Pus bumps, pink bumps, acne, folliculitis can also be caused due to topical

corticosteroid. Corticosteroids given by mouth in children can cause adrenal suppression, which

may cause growth suppression and weak immune responses (Risks of Topical Corticosteriods,

n.d.).
