SIP ON THIS | physician facts

Eczema is a nonspecific term for red dry, itchy skin.  It is a cutaneous inflammatory state due to an allergy or an irritant.  CBD works with the endocannabinoid system (ECS) and receptors in the skin to decrease inflammation, which can reduce the symptoms and appearance of dermatitis.

Dermatitis is associated with inflammation, itch, and stress. CBD is an anti-inflammatory and anti-pruritic (anti-itch). Sleep contains melatonin, which is an antioxidant known to improve dermatitis and sleep quality.  Improving sleep raises the itch threshold the next day, so good sleep is imperative in patients with dermatitis.  Patients with dermatitis may also suffer from anxiety and depression, both of which can exacerbate dermatitis. 

Long-standing dermatitis unresponsive to CBD needs evaluation by a board-certified dermatologist to ensure the diagnosis is correct.
