Three drinks to avoid for eczema sufferers
During spring and summer, eczema is very common. If you want to avoid the unbearable itch, its best to watch what you eat. From Chinese medicine perspective, eczema is closely related to asthenic spleen. To avoid onset of eczema, be sure to watch your diet and try to avoid coffee, milk tea and beer.
Coffee: warm in nature, can promote diuresis. Over consumption can stimulate diuresis and damage your yin, causing your body to become hot and dry with lack of fluids. From there you may experience skin dryness, thirst, and constipation. For those who suffer from eczema, having coffee will accelerate skin dryness to worsen the condition.
Milk tea: black tea is warm in nature, and milk is can be greasy. Drinking too much milk tea can worsen skin itchiness.
Beer: A lot of people mistakenly think beer can clear heat, but beer is warm in nature, and can dispel cold and promote blood circulation. Eczema symptoms will worsen with beer consumption.
