A cure to an imperfect skin

How are tea tree oil and eczema related? As we all know, eczema is associated with a common skin condition called atopic dermatitis. It is an inflammatory skin disorder and usually characterized with reddish, flaky, itchy, scaly, and painful skin. It can be a hereditary skin condition but it can also be caused by many irritants including feathers, metals, wool, plants and animal hair, soaps and detergents, bubble bath, cosmetics, fabric dyes, etc. Recent research shows that tea tree oil seems to be an effective option in the treatment of this skin disease. I have a cousin who used to suffer from this condition and I saw how bad it was affecting her social life. She's all better now, thanks to an excellent dermatologist in the PI.
