Atopic dermatitis, a type of eczema is skin condition associated with skin red patches and itchy.
Most cases of atopic dermatitis are healed by itself or by rehydrating the skin with topical forms of petroleum jelly, such as Vaseline.
However, in serious cases, topical steroids to reduce inflammation and control itching may be prescribed. In patients with itching scratch, oral antihistamines may be recommended.
Some atopic dermatitis may also be triggered by skin irritants such as some fabrics, soaps and household cleaners.
On findings a potential ingredient or whole food for the treatment of atopic dermatitis (AD), researchers examined the effects of p-hydroxycinnamic acid (HCA) isolated from the roots of Curcuma longa.
In a mouse model of ear AD, p-hydroxycinnamic acid (HCA) exerted a significant activity against ear thickening, immune-cell infiltration, production of AD-promoting immunoregulatory cytokines in ear tissues.
Futhermore, HCA also inhibited the increased spleen and draining lymph node size and weight in the induction of the increased pro-inflammatory cytokines production.
Based on the results, researchers said, ” HCA may be of therapeutic potential for AD as it acts by suppressing keratinocyte activation and downregulating T-cell differentiation and cytokine production”.
Turmeric treated group significantly attenuated food allergy symptoms by decreasing rectal temperature and anaphylactic response induced by OVA, compared to the low improvement of the curcumin group.
Turmeric also inhibited the antibodies produced by the immune system that can lead to inflammatory processes( IgE, IgG1) and mMCP-1 levels, a marker of food allergy increased by OVA.
