CBD – the treatment for eczema, atopic, and contact dermatitis

August 02, 2018

Suffering from skin problems? Use CBD to decrease and eventual elimination of the inflammation, itch, and redness.

Eczema is a rash that results from atopic and contact dermatitis.  The skin changes can be characterized as 1 – itchy blisters on red skin,  2- dry, flaky crusting of the skin, or 3- leathery thickening of the skin that occurs as a result of chronic scratching.

Atopic dermatitis is a form of eczema. A person with atopic dermatitis often has a genetic mutation in filaggrin, a protein in his skin.  This mutation causes the skin to dehydrate easily and allow allergens such as pollen, pet dander, perfumed soaps, and dust mites to penetrate the skin, causing itching and inflammation.  People with allergies to a particular food product will also develop the same skin reaction as a result of eating the particular food.

The scratching from atopic dermatitis causes a downward cycle of more itching, more scratching with the end result of skin redness, flaking, scaling, inflammation, and skin thickening. This skin condition is called eczema.  The location of the rash is the part of the body that is easiest to scratch, which is the front of the neck, behind the ears, inside the elbows, and behind the knees.

Contact dermatitis is a reaction of the skin to a chemical exposed directly on the skin.  Over 90% of the population develops this when exposed to poison oak, and it is also commonly seen in people exposed to nickel, cosmetic agents, and many forms of hair dye.  The location of the rash is the location that was in direct contact with the chemical.  Constant chemical exposure will cause the skin changes known as eczema.

There are endocannabinoid receptors in the skin.  CBD, when applied to the skin of someone suffering with eczema will decrease the inflammation, itchiness, redness, and allow for full healing of the skin.
