Why Advanced Bland Skincare of Eczema?
Advanced Bland Skincare offers our skin only the ingredients our body can use without potential harm…. Things have gotten really complicated because some very simple things can cause real harm.
Did you know…
you do not have to eat something to become allergic to it? For example putting milk on your skin can give you a food allergy to milk.
Early exposure to a food allergen through broken skin might prompt the development of food allergy. This theory gained further support from a recent study that found increased prevalence of food allergy if a child had skin infection or eczema in the first year of life.
Diaper Rash Treatment Causes Food Allergies???
Ruchi Gupta, MD, MPH, Associate Professor of Pediatrics and Medicine at Northwestern University Feinberg School of Medicine comments.
“The association of food allergy with early skin infection and eczema, however, might shed some light on how food allergies develop. Our findings support the hypothesis that food sensitization might start with exposure through the skin. This might have implications for prevention of food allergies.”
So now we know that putting nut oils on a red baby bottom may be why a child developed a nut food allergy. Shea butter is a tree nut found in many a baby cream. Most shea comes from Africa where initial processing may be somewhat less than ideal from day to day.
Our Skin Protects by Making Allergies
Try not to be angry at your skin. Our skin functions to protect us from things that can hurt us. These allergy making tools regulate and monitor some 50,000 different bacteria and fungi. This collection of teaming microbes we call our Biome. Our biome lives, in harmony and protects us without starting a rash, in most cases.
The allergies our skin makes protects us. Just like dogs evolved for dangerous animals, our biome has become our protector. This incredibly powerful allergy making machine on our skin keeps our biome working for our health.
But, when we have a rash or injure our skin with a burn, our skin allergy making machine goes into high gear to make sure nothing bad sets up shop within our body. If these microbes get into our body, we call these infestations, Sepsis.
Food Allergens On Damaged Skin… just say “NO”
When you put a common food allergen on your angry skin, you create a total body problem. Your body starts to fight the food in your gut and you feel lousy. Repeated skin exposure increases the potential for severe allergy. While it does not make entire sense, feeding small amounts of allergens early in life helps reduce the potential for food allergies. From AAAI.org the premiere physician allergists:
evidence has shown that there is no reason to delay introduction of the highly allergenic foods beyond 4 to 6 months of age. In fact, delaying the introduction of these foods may increase your baby’s risk of developing allergies.
To simplify things, our gut brings things into our body. These things we have chosen to eat by intention. Our skin keeps things out of our body. We often have things in contact with our skin we do not choose. Skin has more capacity to make allergic than our gut. They do different things. Advanced Bland Skincare acknowledges this.
