Can hormone deficiencies/imbalances cause chronic , severe eczema and asthma?

Can hormone deficiencies/imbalances cause chronic , severe eczema and asthma?

No: Hormone deficiencies/imbalances do not play a big role in causing asthma, but they can affect its severity. For instance, asthma in some women can worsen during pregnancy and that could be related to the hormonal changes creating a more pro-inflammatory state, but its not directly linked to its causation in the first place. Because asthma is multifactorial, both genes & environment play a big role. ...Read more

Hi my son is 6 and has asthma and eczema with a dustmite allergy... Im not sure if his eczema is triggered by his allergy however I am fearful of using steroid creams.. What other alternatives do i have that work...

Some basics: Steroid creams when properly used are a mainstay of eczema care. The creams/lotion come in various strengths. Your doc can help you decide what strength would be safe to use & what skin issues would need it. A skin care program based on use of non-steroid creams, bathing, moisturizers should also be worked out. There are PGE inhibitors that can help but these have other potential drawbacks. ...Read more
