Eczema? An (in)solvable problem - go to the sea for treatment

Eczema is one of the most common skin diseases. Anyone who has experienced it knows the extent to which this disease can change lives. Eczema can be caused by a number of factors - the most commonly cited are stress, a diet deficient in vitamins and minerals, an unsuitable lifestyle or air pollution.

Despite the advances in medicine over the past decade, it is still difficult for doctors to diagnose the causes of this disease. Only the outward manifestations are treated.


If you live near the sea, make frequent trips to the beach or are planning a seaside holiday this summer, chances are you'll get more than just fun out of it. It has long been known that frolicking at the seaside has many health benefits.

In the past and even today, doctors have advised their patients to go to the sea to improve the symptoms of various illnesses.

The use of sea water for medical purposes even has a name: thalassotherapy.

Seawater differs from river water in that it contains significantly higher levels of minerals, including sodium, chloride, sulphate, magnesium and calcium. It is therefore very useful for skin conditions such as psoriasis or eczema. Thalassotherapy is simply ideal for diseased skin.

Our grandmothers were clear about this: "You have eczema, go to the sea!" The area of the salt lakes near the town of Torrevieja offers a unique microclimate, which is sought after by people with chronic diseases, not excluding eczema. But a short stay by the sea will only help temporarily. But why not buy a house in Spain and go there regularly? We're not saying that a long-term stay in this environment will be a solution in itself, but it can be a first step. And the best step. Or is it the last step that's needed?
