Contact dermatitis is a skin condition with symptoms of a red, itchy rash caused by direct contact with a substance or an immune overreaction against contact allergens.
The skin is the largest organ of the body containing 3 layers including the epidermis, the dermis, and the hypodermis. The skin also is the third detoxed organ combined with the liver and kidney to cleanse the body toxins.
Many chemicals and nonchemicals substances have been found to induce such abnormal reactions, including cosmetics, fragrances, jewelry, and plants.
Most cases of contact dermatitis are nonlife-threatening, however, the condition can induce certain discomforts, particularly in people with an allergic reaction and medical conditions.
The skin condition caused by an allergic reaction can be healed within a week or 2. Contact dermatitis can be preventable if the cause is identified.
Most common symptoms of contact dermatitis red, itchy rash on the skin. Some people may also experience more serious symptoms including crusting swelling, burning or tenderness skin.
Some researchers suggested, contact dermatitis may be associated with the inflammatory skin condition caused by the production of pro-inflammatory and toxic factors that activated the skin innate immunity, such as irritant contact dermatitis and allergic contact dermatitis.
Dr. Freudenberg MA, the lead scientist at the Max-Planck-Institute for Immunobiology, wrote, "Although DC and effector T cells play a protagonistic role in the sensitization and elicitation phase of ACD, respectively, other cell types including keratinocytes, NK cells, mast cells, and B cells contribute to the pathogenesis of the disease"
And, ": In this review, the authors summarize recent findings that identify stress responses and innate immune pathways triggered by contact allergens and review recent data regarding the adaptive T cell response".
Cabbage is a species of Brassica oleracea belongings to the family Brassicaceae (or Cruciferae), native to the Mediterranean region along the seacoast. The veggie has a short stem of which is crowded a mass of leaves, usually green but in some varieties, it may be red or purplish.
With an aim to find a potential compound for the promotion of skin health, researchers investigated the anti-inflammatory effects of methanol extract of B. oleracea var. capitata L. (MEBO) in mice with contact dermatitis (CD) including ear swelling, erythema, and histopathological changes.
According to the results obtained from the tested analysis, topical treatment with MEBO showed significant inhibition of ear swelling and erythema.
Furthermore, MEBO also significantly inhibited epidermal hyperplasia associated with overdevelopment of a number of cells in the epidermis and immune cells infiltration in the induction of inflammation.
Compared to control, the levels of pro-inflammatory cytokines such as tumor necrosis factor-alpha, interferon-gamma, interleukin-6, and monocyte chemotactic protein-1 in MEBO treated mice significantly lower also compared to those in controls.
However, there are no body weight gain or spleen body weight ratio in the treatment group.
Based on the findings, researchers said, "These results indicate that cabbage can be used for the treatment of skin inflammation and that its anti-inflammatory activity is closely related to the inhibition of Th1 skewing reactions (associated with pathogenicity or protection from disease)".
Taken altogether, red cabbage may be considered a functional food for the treatment of contact dermatitis, pending to the confirmation of the larger sample size and multicenter human study.
Intake of turmeric in the form of supplement should be taken with extreme care to prevent overdose acute liver toxicity.
