How to make eczema go away with treating dust allergies

Make eczema eat your dust. Literally.

If your eczema is hard to control, always consider treating with SLIT after testing for environmental allergens. 

What’s SLIT?

Sublingual Immunotherapy⁠: Small daily doses of the thing you are allergic to make you more tolerant to the allergen. It’s an effective prescription and it’s covered by most drug plans.⁠

Why? What’s the new tea?

A giant study of studies was just published. In it, thousands of people who were using topical prescriptions for eczema who couldn’t stop or else their eczema would flare, were given small doses of the things they were allergic to. When you added the micro-doses of let’s say, dust mite SLIT, you might have a greater than 50% improvement of eczema symptoms.

How does this make any sense?

For many, eczema is basically skin sneezing. Being allergic to something automatically makes us inflamed. That inflammation can go anywhere including our skin. Asthma is in on this too. Eczema used to be called skin asthma. #atopictriad

Does SLIT only work as I micro-dose?

No. The effect is long lasting because the underlying immune response to the allergy is modified. The root of the problem is addressed. If you have eczema and a runny nose or asthma, then SLIT worked even better!

What do you do?

Have eczema but don’t know what exactly you’re allergic to? We can use scratch testing to reliably find out if it’s birches, alders, grasses, weeds, dust mites, molds and animals.⁠🐶⁠

Once we know what afflicts you, you can slowly put down the steroid tube and grab that SLIT.⁠ Sublingual Immunotherapy⁠ is a safe prescription medication covered by most drug plans that can help you kiss that itch away.⁠

PS That dust is real tasty. Less parched, more confection. SLIT is less desert, more dessert.
