Toxic environment cause of eczema

According to news reports from UK the toxic environment in which we live is a contributing factor in the incidence of eczema outbreaks in children and adults.
Chemical irritants and allergens are a major cause, including dust mites and pet fur, so the kitten, puppy or rabbit you got for your child could be a cause of eczema.
Eczema also appears to be linked to asthma suggesting that it could be the air that we breath that is leading to a greater incidence of eczema today than was the case a decade or two ago.
Of the treatments available the safest is often a natural herbal remedy and one that has received a lot of acclaim contains New Zealand Manuka honey. Manuka honey is used in a wide range of skin care and healing formulas today and is now widely accepted by the medical community as a highly effective antimicrobial agent. Manuka honey has the added benefit of being hygroscopic, attracting and maintaining moisture and calming the skin. More information is available at
