Eczema, otherwise known as atopic dermatitis is a non-contagious skin condition most commonly found in children although adults can get it. The symptoms of eczema include itchy, red, and dry skin caused by inflammation. It is a skin condition that varies significantly from person to person. It is also called atopic dermatitis and in western medicine is mainly treated with oral medications, steroid creams and light therapy also known as photo-chemotherapy.​

Halotherapy is one of the leading alternative therapies since Dry Salt Therapy has been proven to have a multidimensional positive effect on various forms of dermatitis, including acute symptoms of acne, psoriasis and eczema.  Depositing on open skin areas, dry salt particles increases activity of skin ion channels. Stimulating cell growth and regeneration.  Dry salt particles balance skin PH and auto flora as well as reducing harmful bacteria and inflammation.  After a series of treatment, study subjects showed decreased itching, decreased or resolved scaling of the skin, drying and healing of small fissures, scratches and exudative symptoms.

Skin and respiratory diseases are often coexistent and dermatitis is associated with other issues of the immune system.  The effects of inhaled salt particles on the respiratory tract decreases bacteria and improves bronchial drainage, thus decreasing overall toxicity and reducing the likelihood of future outbreaks.  The sterile environment and negative ions inside the salt room relax and modulate the nervous system, freeing the body from the stresses of external stimuli and initiating healing and rebalancing.  Multiple studies in Russia have shown salt therapy to be effective in the relief of dermatitis symptoms and a potential long-term benefit as part of a total body approach to healing.

According to the owner of a major salt cave in England, for most patients after a course of Salt Therapy, eczema symptoms disappear. They estimate the treatment efficacy at between 75 – 98%.
