Eczema due to venous hypertension
Also known as gravitational eczema, or hypostatic eczema, this problem effects more women than men and is most common in people over 50. In addition to the eczema, oedema, ulceration, and sometimes fibrosis of the skin can result.
What treatment works?
Herbal medicine and natural herbal creams are the primary treatment. Each person is an individual and each herbal formula is produced specifically for one person and altered on a regular basis as the skin changes. Diet and exercise may be important in some cases.
