Best Face Cream For Dry Skin, Eczema, Psoriasis, Rosacea and Acne

What is your reason for using face creamc We all use face cream for different reasons. Some of us use it because we don't like looking old, and some people use it to clear up and then prevent acne from recurring, while others suffer from dry skin or skin conditions like eczema, psoriasis and rosacea.

No matter what your reason for using face cream you are always concerned about the product you buy. You may wonder if the product you are using is the best face cream for your needs.

This article will help guide you through the various skin care products, their uses and the ingredients in them.

First, let's start with some basic information about skin.

Our skin is on the front line every day. It helps protect us from the sun's radiation, the bacteria and germs that are actually present on our skin, and it helps to regulate our body temperature. However, we constantly abuse it by overexposing it to the sun, taking long hot showers or baths, and using harsh chemicals on it.

But there are ways that we can protect our skin, nourish it, restore and retain the moisture that we lose and rejuvenate our appearance.

One of the most important ingredients in any face cream is vitamin B. This vitamin helps our skin retain its moisture. Other key ingredients in skin care and protection are the antioxidants vitamin E and CoenzymeQ10.

Now let's look at some of the reasons that people use face cream and talk a little about which ingredients will be in the best face cream for each condition.

When you are worried about dry skin or dry skin conditions like eczema, or psoriasis, you need face cream that doesn't contain alcohol (label may read ethanol, isopropyl, benzyl etc.) or ethanolamine (may be listed as DEA, MEA or TEA) these chemicals are harsh on the skin. They completely strip the skin of its natural oils. This leaves the skin even drier than before.

The best face cream for you will contain natural olive oil, and grapeseed oil. These ingredients are most like the body's natural oils. They help to clean and then moisturize the face.

If you are worried about acne, the best face cream for you would contain manuka honey with a UMF rating. This offers you strong antibacterial protection against the bacteria normally found on the skin such as staph and MRSA. Its deep cleansing action removes dirt and grime from the pores, and the honey acts as a barrier to prevent further outbreaks of acne.

You should never use a face cream that contains mineral oil. It actually clogs the pores and encourages acne outbreaks.

Now that you are armed with this information, I hope that it will help you find, as I have, the best face cream for your skin. Don't settle for a product that only gives just some of the ingredients you need. You deserve the best.

    Does cortisone cream help with psoriasis?
    I recently started getting mild psoriasis. Its really embarrassing because everyone asks me what it is and I always feel like I have to cover up. I dont have insurance so I cant go to the doctor for treatment. Does cortisone cream help?

    • ANSWER:
      Cortisone cream is a mild steroid and helps psoriasis in most cases. Steroids, however, is not the best choice to deal with psor. because they carry side-effects and thin out the skin. So use this cream sparingly and try to find something natural that works for you. Google "natural remedies for psoriasis" and take your pick. Many of those won't do any good, but some will work. I personally find herbal ointment by Champori clearing my psoriasis faster than anything else.

  14. QUESTION:
    Is there a good over the counter cream or medicine for psoriasis on the face?
    I have psoriasis, mainly on ,my scalp, face and chest. I discovered T-Gel shampoo caused my scalp psoriasis to go into remission- I have psoriasis on either side of my nose- people always ask if my nose is sunburned- It's psoriasis- Is there an over the counter drug or cream i could apply to my face?

    Since T-Gel shampoo helped the psoriasis clear from my scalp- what if I applied that to my face?

    • ANSWER:
      The shampoo is likely too drying for the face, but the active ingredient, tar, is available in gel, foam and lotion forms for the skin. Try Cutar, Scytera or T-Derm oil. You should get a similar effect as the T-Gel gave for the scalp. You may not need Rx treatment.

  16. QUESTION:
    clobetsol cream for psoriasis?
    My fiance has scalp psoriasis and it gets particularly bad in the winter with all the dry heat indoors. He's very self conscious about it and I heard clobetasol (sp?) works really well. I mentioned it, but he is concerned that it will feel weird in his hair. Also, his hair is pretty thick so putting it on just the affected areas may be difficult at times. Is it ok to just put all over the entire scalp? I would say right now the majority of it is affected, but it's not like that all the time. I would say it's at it's best behavior in the summer. It's particularly bad at the hairline. Does clobetasol feel gross in your hair? Like greasy, smelly - or does it rub right in and isn't noticeable? Would it rub off easily? And how quickly does it work? I know it's steriodal and shouldn't be used constantly, so once it goes away stop using it, but then of course it comes back so when that happens and you start using the cream again, how quickly does it work? I hope that wasn't confusing!

    • ANSWER:
      I have not tried Clobetasol because it is a steroid and I have sworn off them as much as I can. I have serious psoriasis so am using an injectible -- Enbrel. I doubt your fiance' needs that, though. There are other things developed for the scalp, like Luxiq and Derma-Smoothe. Has he seen a dermatologist for this? I wouldn't just start putting stuff on unless recommended.

      My suggestion for the flaking -- not the most pleasant thing but it sure eases the tight scalp and flaking, put baby oil on at bedtime and sleep with a shower cap on -- cover the pillow with a towel. Wash it all out in the morning, might take two or three washings; a clarifying shampoo is best. Then, using a soft brush, brush those loosened scales out of the scalp and dry the hair or let it dry. It helps. Do again when the scalp feels tight (for me it was nightly unfortunately).

      But, most importantly, consult a dermatologist.

  17. QUESTION:
    Does anyone use Champori cream/spray for psoriasis?
    I have had psoriasis for 3 years and nothing has helped get rid of it, i know it cannot be cured i just want it to be less noticeable. I have heard people speaking about Champori cream/spray and have said it has worked, but im unsure if it is a scam and if it will really work?

    anyone tried it?

    • ANSWER:
      I reluctantly tried Champori and am amazed by the results. After 2 weeks of using the cream and spray twice per day ,the rash had started to reduce and after 4 weeks it was hardly visible any more. It is now about 12weeks and all that is left is a slight discoloration of the skin the rash has totally gone.

  18. QUESTION:
    Is there a good cream or treatment for psoriasis at target, walmart, a drugstore?
    I've been breaking out with it on my hands pretty bad because I work with chemicals.
    I was just wondering what you could suggest over the counter that would be easy to find. I can't go see a doctor for more serious things, so I can't see him for a rash.

    • ANSWER:
      You said you work with chemicals, so I'm wondering if it is something that you are coming into contact with at work and not psoriasis. You mentioned that it was on your hands but didn't mention any where else on your body that was infected. I presume you wear rubber gloves at work. If you don't, maybe you should. Tegrin makes a pretty good line of treatment products for psoriasis. or you might try some medicated hand cream like Jergens. Psoriasis is a lot more than a skin rash. It's a disease of the immune system where for unknown causes the immune system gets messages that there is damaged skin, and it goes to work trying to fix the damage by making new replacement cells. One little trick to tell if it's psoriasis. check your fingernails. If you find ridges or little pits in the nails, that's a good clue that it is Psoriasis.
      Good Luck

  19. QUESTION:
    Mother of Pearl Cream for Psoriasis?
    I have psoriasis of the face, scalp and neck that didn't start until I was 18ish. I am 22 now and it just started getting super bad! I have been trying a bunch of different things, including creams from the doctor and most stuff makes it worse. A few things I have tried make it better for a little while but it doesn't last, even though I am still using the stuff. My fiancee who is from Honduras, swears by this stuff called Crema de Concha Nacar aka Mother of Pearl Cream... I heard that 100% pure extra virgin Coconut Oil clears up Psoriasis in days and prevents it from coming back. Saturday I went out and bought some, not realizing that he went out and bough me the Mother of Pearl cream. He was begging me and begging me to try it and I was like "fine" since I hadn't tried the coconut oil yet. I put it on yesterday and my skin FELT better (less itchy/painful) and the redness reduced a little but the patches of dry seemed to look harder i guess u could say? And this morning I was super itchy and he told me to keep using the concha nacar because it takes a few days to start working. I read online that it is mostly for acne scars and anti-aging.. which makes me nervous cause stuff for acne and anti-aging usually irritates my skin. He said it will work in 4 days and to just trust him.. Should I wait or should I just start using the coconut oil?

    • ANSWER:
      My father has severe Psoriasis and I just gave a presentation on this in my Esthetics class last week. Psoriasis is an auto-immune disorder so be careful what you are eating. I would stay away from beef, chicken & pork since those are the 3 biggest meat sources from our delightful Factory Farms. They are pumped with antibiotics and even Dr. Oz had a show a couple of weeks ago and revealed that no one really knows how many antibiotics chickens are given. They are however resistant to the top 5 antibiotics on the market.
      If you are auto-immune that means that when a foreign antigen is introduced to your body, your natural antibodies come out to take care of that PLUS good cells... killing them too. So, just be careful what animal products you ingest (including cow's milk).

      Turmeric is a well known treatment for Psoriasis and I want to let you know about Protandim (oral supplement with Turmeric, Bacopa, Milk Thistle, Green Tea, & Ashwagandha). ABC PrimeTime did a special on it and this company also has a skin cream with all these ingredients + some.

      http://www.mylifevantage.com/helpyourbodyhelpitself/default.aspx

      If you go to the top right of the page, you'll see "TrueTV", there you will find the video of Dr. Kimberly Stone presenting True Science Anti-Aging Cream and she also talks about the benefits for Psoriasis. I have not yet started my father on this because I just found this company and have been taking Protandim for a couple of weeks now but I will definitely be getting this for him (my kids too - both type 1 diabetics)... I believe in the facts and I hope you will find this helpful.

  20. QUESTION:
    Has using steroid cream for psoriasis ruined my skin????
    i have suffered from psoriasis my whole life, but generaly its quite mild. about 3 years ago i had a bad outbreak which was covering every part of my body. my doctor prescribed dovobet which contains a combination of calcipotriol and betamethasone dipropionate. i made a point of asking my doctor if it was safe to use on my face, she said yes its fine. about a month or two later the psoriasis cleared up, but i was then left with sore and lumpy red raw skin all over my face, which would get better for a few days when the cream was applied, this went on for another two months untill it became too painful and i asked to see a different doctor, this doctor told me to stop using the cream immediatly and perscribed antibiotics. it eventualy cleared up but now my skin seems very thin and i can see veins under my skin, its been about a year and a half and im wondering will my skin ever go back to normal? and if there is any treatments to get rid of the veins?
    no my doctor didnt warn my off any side effects, and now im pretty angry about that. does anyone no if its possible to get laser on nhs? or roughly how much it would cost? can i see a dermatologist without be refered by my doctor as i have lost a lot of trust in them.

    • ANSWER:
      I hardly know where to start answering this question. The data sheet for Dovobet clearly states that even accidental contact with the face should be avoided.

      ' The patient must be instructed in correct use of the product to avoid application and accidental transfer to the scalp, face, mouth and eyes. Hands must be washed after each application. '

      Later in the sheet it again comments on facial use 'Skin of the face and genitals are very sensitive to corticosteroids. Long-term treatment of these parts of the body should be avoided. These areas should ONLY be treated with the weaker corticosteroids.'

      I think at this stage you should ask to be referred to to a specialist dermatologist. If the damage is permanant you need to consider what action you wish to take about your previous management.

  21. QUESTION:
    Has anyone used Ammonium Lactate Cream 12% for psoriasis?
    has this lotion helped anyone?

    • ANSWER:
      My skin condition hasnt been id'd yet-next appointment. I just went to the dermatologist for the 1st time in about 20 years-doctor was appalled my parents had stopped taking me as a kid, (yes my skin was THAT bad). I honestly didnt expect him to be able to do anything for me. My skin has always been severely dry and scaly. THIS STUFF IS A MIRACLE! I've been using it 5 days and i cant remember my skin ever, ever, ever, ever being so moisturized and NORMAL LOOKING!!!!!!!!! I am ecstatic! i think it was just 10 bucks with my insurance too.

  22. QUESTION:
    Has anyone tried the cream champori for Psoriasis on scalp and leg.?
    If so how long does it take to clear and stay away.

    • ANSWER:
      I've been using champori ointment on my scalp and legs for the last year and the results are outstanding. It starts working immediately with visible effect in few days. Takes a week or so to bring the outbreak under control. the ointment is greasy and i apply it sparingly and carefully to the scalp parting the hair. Champori works better than anything else I tried so far.

      Fina

  23. QUESTION:

  24. QUESTION:
    does anyone know of an affective cream to help severe psoriasis?
    have tried many creams and some work for a while, i have it all over my body, many thanks for any suggestions

    • ANSWER:
      Today's standard local application is as I am sure you already know is Calcipotriol, (Dovonex). It has the advantage of being very safe and easy and clean to use, however in my experience it's effects wear off, and I suspect it is one of the preparations you are talking about.

      Flourinated steroids such as Betnovate, which is also included within Dovobet, are best avoided as they damage, thin and mark the skin and the condition rebounds back with a vengeance when you try and stop them.

      I was always impressed by the 2 much older preparations, tar or dithranol. These work very well but have a number of problems. The first is that so few doctors are now cognoscente with using them. The are fiddly to manipulate and must initially be started as short contact therapy and in very low concentrations. They require frequent doctor review and generally careful monitoring, the results however are usually very rewarding.

    Can anyone recommend a cream that works for psoriasis please.?
    My partner suffers from it, go's to the hospital regular and is just given dermovate and moisuriser. He has it on his feet/legs they are cracked and sometimes bleed. Most nights he applies the cream and puts them in bags to stop it going everywhere ( what a nuisance). I've had some great advice from yahoo members regarding products to use for bath/shower etc which I thought the hospital should have recommended months ago - winter is coming and i know as soon as he starts wearing shoes, its going to get really bad. Any advice would be appreciated - thank you!!

    • ANSWER:
      Try to get hold of some licorice cream. This one has licorice and other anti-inflammatory herbal extracts:
      http://www.healthstore.uk.com/p351861/hopes-relief-cream-for-eczema-amp-psoriasis-60g.html
      ...........but do some research and shop around if cost is a consideration.

      The Green Pharmacy Herbal Handbook might give you a better idea on what to try for psoriasis:
      http://www.mothernature.com/Library/Bookshelf/Books/41/98.cfm

      He could also try Sarsaparilla smilax capsules. It is a traditional rain forest treatment for psoriasis.
      http://www.rain-tree.com/sarsaparilla.htm
      Holland and Barrett in the UK sell Sarsaparilla smilax root capsules.

      Someone I know who has a psoriasis-like skin condition on their hands and feet uses Cuticura hand and nail cream and that stops the flaking and cracking....though the skin still bubbles when under stress. Not sure if that would help your partner though but it might be worth trying. However, I would still try a cream containing licorice [an anti-inflammatory herb] and other anti-inflammatory herbs such as chamomile and calendula.

      He should also take fish oil as that is anti-inflammatory and might help with skin dryness in the winter months.

      Do some research on these supplements.

      Hope that helps.

Home Remedy For Eczema

8 Home Remedy for Eczema on the Face

One percent of adults have this condition and about 20 percent of all kids have eczema. An instant cure for eczema is not possible; however, its symptoms can diminish in time and the condition can become manageable. I have met many people who suffer with eczema and most all will say that they have tried all kinds of treatments and nothing seems to get rid of their skin condition. This article is provided to help those who want diy eczema treatment tips.

1. Dietary changes mean avoiding foods that potentially trigger the symptoms. It is also best to drink a lot of water and eat foods rich in Omega 3. Also wearing cotton clothes, not abrasive fabrics, help a lot. Good hygiene is also essential. Plus, if you have eczema, it is not advisable to use conventional soap because of its drying qualities. Also keep your nails short and your hands clean. This helps avoid infection and thus, the spreading of it. Use peanut oil or coconut oil to deal with the flare-ups.

2. Examples of ingredients that can be found in natural oral and topical remedies for eczema are: selenium, zinc, Omega-3-oils, artichoke extract, milk thistle extract, olive leaf extract, gamma-linoleic acid, grape seed extract, collagen type II, hyaluronic acid and chondroitin sulphate.

3. Wash your clothes regularly and change the bedding on your bed as often as once a week to prevent bacteria growth on it. Use bedding sheets that are made of 100% cotton to prevent outbreaks of further sores. You can learn how diy eczema treatment tips all start at home and in your laundry that you utilize.

4. Chamomile can be taken both internally and externally for eczema outbreaks. The quickest way to utilize its power is through a chamomile wrap. Steep a heavy brew of chamomile tea by combining three cups of distilled water and nine organic chamomile teabags on the stove. Allow the tea to boil for five minutes, then turn off the heat. Allow the mixture to sit until completely cooled, then dip a cloth diaper or soft towel into the mixture. Do not wring it out. Lay back, place the towel over the area of the outbreak, and rest with this soothing covering for at least 30 minutes. Place a plastic cover over the top of the towel to keep it from drying out

5. Take Frequent Warm Showers: Experts recommend taking frequent warm showers and applying a thick moisturizer after bath when your skin is still moist.

6. Fresh plantain can be applied directly to the skin for a quick cooling cure. For the best potency, crush the fresh plantain into a paste and combine it with some sweet almond oil or olive oil. Rub the mask directly onto the face and allow to remain for 30 minutes. Gently rinse off the herb pieces with cold water, but leave the oil behind to keep moisturizing and healing the skin.

7. Avoiding stress and getting more profound relaxation regularly can help to hinder eczema flaring up. Meditation is a good method to get deeper relaxation.

8. One of the causes of eczema is extreme dry skin; by keeping your skin from becoming dry you can avoid further outbreaks on your skin. Use lotions that do not contain perfume and apply it constantly to your hands throughout the day. If you have extremely dry skin you can try using crisco vegetable cooking oil to help keep your skin moist.

    I get eczema on my arms and legs every winter. It's normal, and my doctor says it will only appear as it gets colder. I've had it ever since I was little. I had to lotion for it, but its dried out since I used it last year and haven't used it since. is there any home remedies that can help it?

    • ANSWER:
      Natural treatment worked best for me. I cleared my eczema with serenaskin herbal remedies. Anti-eczema extract keeps my eczema at bay.

  2. QUESTION:
    Is there an effective home remedy for eczema?
    My son has had extremely dry skin for his whole life and winter is really hard on his cheeks. This last week his arms have been really bad too and lotion seems to burn him. He is three.

    • ANSWER:
      My daughter is 6 and has had eczema since she was 2 months old. If the lotion is burning him, we had this problem, you are using the wrong lotion. I would say to get Eucerin moisturizing creme. It is in a tub and very thick. You need to make sure when buying lotion that it is fragrance free, hypoallergenic, all that stuff. Because otherwise, it is going to burn. With this stuff she puts it on 2-3 times daily and her skin stays hydrated. Also for the itching we use hydrocortisone cream. She is doing well with these things. Hope it helps.

  3. QUESTION:
    What is the best medicine or even a home remedy for eczema?

    • ANSWER:
      Try supplementing your diet with fish oil and I started to use the oil of a vitamin E capsule on areas where the skin is scaly. If the area is inflamed, try some aloe to sooth the inflamed area. Hope this works.

  8. QUESTION:
    Whats a good home remedy for eczema?
    Its quite annoying.

    • ANSWER:
      I've had eczema since i was really little and nothing worked for me. The doctors always said to use a sock and put tons of lotion on it and let it sit over night. I use elidel and it works! I put it on before i go to bed and i wear very loose clothes and its usually gone when i wake up.. I never found a good home remedy but elidel works

  9. QUESTION:
    is there any kind of home remedy for eczema or a medicaction for it?

    • ANSWER:
      I had the worst eczema around 12 ! ALL up my legs and arms!
      (while it is considered a skin disease, hormonal changes can cause eczema
      so, some women experience or develop it while pregnant)

      All you have to do is take cool showers avoid HOT steamy showers or baths it will worsen outbreaks
      and use a hypoallergenic lotion as soon as you get out and dry off--- do this religiously!!!
      most doctors recommend using Cedifil soap & lotion
      since it is very mild and will not continue to dry out your skin
      NO SCRATCHING! as tempting as it may be! don't!

      there is also a cream your doctor can prescribe
      But I personally found it to not be helpful
      http://www.google.com/products?hl=en&q=eczema+cream&oq=ezcema&um=1&ie=UTF-8&ei=qFGLS7TiAueH8AbewNGUCg&sa=X&oi=product_result_group&ct=title&resnum=1&ved=0CDQQrQQwAA
      ^ you can buy creams like these or go to your doctor and get a prescription
      for those really bad break outs

      ironically now I am always complimented on how baby soft my skin is
      I can take hot baths and showers and my legs and arms haven't see a spot of eczema in years!
      I now use lotions like Lubriderm and Aveeno (with oat)

      it might take a while but if you stick with it cooler showers and moisturizing your skin directly afterward it will clear up

  10. QUESTION:
    home remedy for eczema? prescription too expensive.?
    I have some extreme eczema on my left arm. the doc prescribed some creme but it is way too expensive. Does ne 1 have a home remedy ?

    • ANSWER:
      My dermatologist (I have eczema for 18 years, and I'm 18 years old!!) told me that adding some bleach to my bath water (like a tablespoon, nothing much, but I guess it depends on how filled is your bathtub). Soak in it for 15 minutes, at least, and it helps to prevent infection too! I warn you, though, it may stings a bit, and it kind of smells like indoor pool. It worked for me :)

  11. QUESTION:
    Does anyone know of a home remedy for eczema?

    • ANSWER:
      Fresh Aloe Vera out of the garden, it stops the itching & will clear it up, use it several times a day, but beware it does leave your skin with a green tinge (because of the gel)

  12. QUESTION:
    Does anyone know any home remedies for eczema?
    I have mild eczema on my feet that is quite bothersome. I don't think it's bad enough to warrant prescription medication and I don't feel like seeing a doctor, so does anyone have a helpful home remedy?

    • ANSWER:
      There have already been excellent answers.

      However, I recommend this taking a look at this information in UpToDate:
      http://www.patients.uptodate.com/topic.asp?file=gen_hlth/4517&title=Eczema+%28Atopic+dermatitis%29

      This is the resource and information many physicians use. I would provide a link to the physician's articles on eczema, but they wouldn't work for you (you need a password). However, this is the "Patient Information" section of UpToDate, which is excellent and not a whole lot different from the physician's articles.

      It is also and excellent site to bookmark for future use with other problems.

      BUT...a second reason I answered your question is because *sometimes* people who think they have eczema on the feet - with itchy, scaling skin...actually have tinea pedis (AKA athlete's foot), which is caused by a fungal infection.

      Although tinea pedis tends to show up between toes, this is not always the case - which can make the diagnosis more difficult for a physician.

      Check out these photos of tinea pedis:
      http://images.search.yahoo.com/search/images?p=tinea+pedis&fr=yfp-t-501&toggle=1&cop=mss&ei=UTF-8

      Search for photos with eczema on the feet, and you will see what I mean...they look very similar!

      In fact, to ensure a correct diagnosis, a physician will scrape some of the skin onto a slide, apply a little KOH, and look for fungal hyphae under a microscope.

      -
      So, if this is case with you, the treatments for eczema would help some, but not cure the problem...and it would come back.

      Therefore, if the eczema treatments don't work, consider some over-the-counter antifungal creams or lotions, like:
      Clotrimazole (Lotrimin), Miconazole (Monistat-Derm), or Tolnaftate (Tinactin).

      You'd have to apply any of these twice a day (as opposed to the stronger, but no more effective, prescription antifungals which only require once a day application).

      And sometimes (if extensive), may require up to 4 weeks of treatment. Once and if it clears, keep applying the medicine for another week...and that should do the trick.

      -

      I hope this helps!

    is there a home remedy for eczema?
    my 4yr old son has eczema and i don't have the 100 dollars to go and get his medicine so i was wondering if there was anything at home that i could do to help it

    • ANSWER:
      I feel for you, I don't even want to spend $ to pay the doctor so I can get a 0.00 perscription. My hardest chanllenge, is the "Hand washing issue". It's cold season, so they say to wash my hand 5-10 times a day; but my eczema hurts and water isn't good for my eczema...I'm in a rock and a hard place.

      Have you tried Astrazeneca. This is a pharmacutical company that assists in getting med's. Since you've already paid for the doctor, you may get help from this company. I've never tried it. . .It may be worth you time, it may not be.

      The itch that won't quit may have met its match: A vitamin B12 cream could offer relief for the 15 million Americans with eczema, a dry, itchy skin condition.

      Corticosteroids can relieve symptoms, but they can also severely irritate skin. In a 2-month multicenter study of the B12 cream, German researchers asked 49 volunteers to slather it on one side of their body and a placebo cream on the other.

      Nearly 60 percent said the B12 cream relieved their symptoms (11 percent reported that the placebo helped). The cream should be available later this year." 1

    Are there any home remedies for eczema?
    I have a tiny patch of eczema on my chin and I want it gone. I've gotten this before, on and off for the past 5 years. Usually it goes away on its own, but I am sick of looking at it and feeling it. Does anyone know of any good home remedies that might get rid of it, or at least reduce its severity?

      I HAVE NEVER FOUND COCOA/SHEA BUTTER TO WORK, ALTHOUGH MY DOCTOR AND FAMILY TELL THEY WORK FOR THEM, YOU COULD TRY THOSE.

    Any home remedies for eczema?
    My 4 month old has really bad eczema all over his face and now getting it in different areas of the body. I'm trying everything the dermatologist recommended. Do you know of any natural home remedies that help or cure eczema? I've been told you can only control it but I can't loose hope on finding something.

    • ANSWER:
      Hi Irania,

      Before you get to know the real remedies for Eczema,there are some unproved remedies surrounding Eczema that you should know about. These remedies include:

      * Oatmeal Consumption. It's a common remedy to heal itching, and can be applied as a cream in the bath. But some recent researches tells that oat can give a burning sensation on skin.
      * Sulfur. For a long time, sulfur has been used for some skin problems. However, there is no scientific evidence that sulfur treatment can cure Eczema.
      * Probiotics. They are living microorganisms like Lactobacillus bacteria in yoghurt. They are not effective for treating Eczema, and have a small risk of an infection.
      * Sea water. Many expert dermatologists around the world believe that there are some doubtful evidences that salt water baths can help children with Eczema.

      Recently scientists discovered that a diet rich in Omega-3 may able to reduce the symptoms of this skin disease. Because the disease is related to inflammation, the Omega-3 fatty acids can help controlling the production of chemical mediators of inflammation. This means that the skin rashes can be reduced by consuming fish oil supplements regularly. So, finding the best fish oil supplement is really important to treat Eczema.

Photoallergic Dermatitis - Causes And Treatments

What is Photoallergic Dermatitisc Photoallergic Dermatitis or drug-induced photosensitivity is also commonly known as a sun rash. This is a type of allergic reaction which is quite uncommon. The skin condition Photoallergic Dermatitis typically appears in the form of a series of small red blisters. These blisters usually start off being small, however, they can eventually become quite large. Not all skin areas may have the rash as it usually depends on the individual as to where the skin is affected.

Photoallergic Dermatitis is effectively a reaction between sunlight or other radiant energy sources and a chemical substance to which the individual has been previously exposed. In a lot of cases the dermatitis can actually begin to appear just a few minutes after exposure to the sun. In other cases the condition is manifested after a few hours exposure. This is a spring or summer condition and those who suffer from Photoallergic Dermatitis only usually get relief from it in the cooler autumn and winter seasons.

Sensitivity to sun exposure is usually a lot more common in people who have a fair complexion rather than those individuals who have darker or olive skin types. Children and young women are also more prone to suffer from this type of skin condition. It is known that as most people grow older most of their photosensitivity usually begins to disappear. The age of this happening may vary from forty to fifty years of age.

Causes Of Photoallergic Dermatitis

As previously mentioned the principal cause of Photoallergic Dermatitis is repeated exposure to the sun or ultraviolet light. The combination of this exposure along with allergens such as sun block ingredients, fragrances and some medicines can cause the outbreak of Photoallergic Dermatitis. Many sufferers of Photoallergic Dermatitis wrongly believe that their condition is caused only by sun exposure and to avoid the symptoms they apply sun screen. They do this not knowing that it is the combination of some allergens or chemicals in the sunscreen along with the ultra violet rays that actually cause the condition. Common photoallergic agents include sunscreens, fragrances and antibacterial agents such as chlorhexidine.

Causes Of Drug-induced Photosensitivity

Drug-induced photosensitivity can occur when a person develops a rash following exposure to the sun while at the same time they are taking a particular type of drugs including but not limited to, chlorpromazine, promethazine, some diuretics, antibiotics and various pain killers. If you have a history of photosensitivity in your skin, it is advisable that you consult your doctor to see if you are currently being prescribed any drug that contributes to triggering off your Photoallergic Dermatitis. It is highly likely that your doctor will schedule you for a skin allergy test to narrow down which chemical ingredients in different formulas can trigger the reaction. If you carefully examine the chemical ingredients of your perfumes, and other skin applications you can help to prevent possible Photoallergic Dermatitis outbreaks.

Photoallergic Dermatitis Treatment

You can further reduce the incidence of Photoallergic Dermatitis by being careful not to stay out in the sun too long. If you do happen to see the signs of Photoallergic Dermatitis you should immediately remove yourself from direct contact with the sun. The application of corticosteroids is the best way of controlling the initial rash and relieving the pain and itch that are some of the symptoms experienced by sufferers of this skin condition. Some people who do not develop fully blown symptoms experience a mild case of swelling and itchiness and it may just seem like an ordinary heat rash.

If you are showing signs that you are suffering from Photoallergic Dermatitis then you need to visit your doctor or skin specialist for a thorough examination so they can attempt to identify the chemical compounds that cause your particular outbreak.

Frequently Asked Questions

  1. QUESTION:
    Dermatitis causes and treatment in horses?
    Our 18-year-old Morgan gelding has developed marks on his skin. They are similar to little bumps, but they do not resemble an insect bite. These marks are all over his back and sides. There are even a few larger ones on his neck with a little discharge. They seem to make him very itchy and uncomfortable. Is this a skin disease?

    • ANSWER:
      (m)

      The few possibilities that this might be are all dermatitis, since they all affect the skin. Even though the bumps do not now look like insect bites, the problem may originate in one. The presence of itching may suggest this is an allergic reaction to the insect saliva; which would result in a secondary infection including inflammation and discharge. This kind of reaction could also be caused by an irritant in his environment. Has any part of this environment changed recently?

      The last possibility is that this is a bacterial infection of the hair follicles (this is similar to acne). This is often related to rubbing of the skin with dirty objects such as blankets or tack, or heavy sweating during work. All of these conditions can be treated effectively with antiseptic shampoos and occasionally antibiotics. Consult with your vet for a suitable course of treatment.

      This is a hot topic amongst horse lovers, and there are sure to be a hundred different answers for every day of the week. "Scratches" consist of a mixed bacterial and yeast infection, which is complicated by an inflammation of allergic response. They occur most commonly on the back of the hind pasterns, so is referred to as "pastern dermatitis". Since this area normally has longer hair, it often collect and holds dirty water from riding and is therefore prone to "scratches" more than other areas.

      Occasionally a small laceration or roughened skin on the pastern will incite a bout of scratches. Effective treatment consists of drying the skin and applying a topical antibiotic, an antifungal, and an anti-inflammatory such as a steroid. In some of the more severe cases oral antibiotics and steroids are indicated.

    Seborrheic dermatitis (SD) causes dandruff on the scalp and causes inflamed, red flaky patches of dry skin on the face. I tried topical steroids on my face but it made my condition worse. Are there any other treatments for SD on the face? Supposedly SD is caused by the body's overreaction to yeast that normally live on the skin. This overreaction causes the inflammation and dryness. It is unknown why some people get SD but not others. I am using shampoos like Head and Shoulders for my scalp but don't know what to use on my face.

    • ANSWER:
      I have suffered with this problem since my early twenties. I have tried every OTC product you can imagine without much success. About 2 years ago I finally decided to try a dermatologist again. He prescribed a newer medication called Elidel, it's a topical cream that I put on once a day on affected areas (usually after I take a shower). This is about the only thing I have found that works well. It doesn't completely get rid of it, but it stops the itching and the redness...and I don't get asked if I have a sunburn on my face all the time....it has been a God send.

  3. QUESTION:
    How does a dog with no food allergy but has allergies benefit from a grain free dog food?
    Duke has allergies and scratches all the time and I have been reading this disease he has and it said to -Some dogs with atopy benefit from switching to a higher-quality dog food, even if they don’t have a food allergy. And if they are allergic to house dust mites, they often cross-react with grain mites and will benefit from a canned food or kibble that has no grain.

    http://pets.webmd.com/dogs/dogs-atopic-dermatitis-causes-diagnosis-treatment?page=2

    so i bought some canned grain free dog food and its been 3 days and he has scratched less then he has been,even my dogs seborrhea went away for the time being.

    • ANSWER:
      Dogs are naturally true Omnivores. They do need a certain amount of good fiber and high quality protein. I feed a grain free kibble and a raw diet. I just recently switch to a local company in my area called, Darwin's, instead of grinding meat myself. Darwin's offers menus for dogs as well as cats. For dry kibble I offer FirstMate. I give them treats like, raw chicken necks to help clean their teeth(small dogs, large dogs like turkey necks). Deer antlers are a new one too. Dogs love to chew on those.

      As a retired groomer/trainer I have seen so many dogs with skin conditions and allergies. It lead me to researching dog food companies. In that I pursued educating myself as well as my clients on the benefits of raw/grain free diets. Some people cannot stand the idea of touching raw meat. But they could at least understand the grain free aspect.

      Pet foods that you get at the grocery store and even Pet Supply stores have an ingredient list. I think we all understand that the first ingredient listed has the most percentage of use in the meal. If you do your research you will see that often times these percentage based parts of the meal are sub par fillers. As an added insult to injury, these same companies contract out places like McDonald's who use oil to fry foods. They collect the grease from their fryers and stowe it in 55 gallons drums, often out in 100 plus degree heat. Letting it get rancid. They then truck it into the plants where they spray it on the kibble and add it to canned foods to make the meal more palatable to dogs. Now that they have this food they market it by guilt tripping owners/pet parents into believing that if they do not feed this food they do not love their dog(s). So a bag of dog food that took maybe a dollar to produce is now going to cost you over . And those companies keep right on trucking on pumping crap into the market.

      So for a seemingly healthy dog:switching to grain free can often times solve many problems like skin conditions, eye problems, breathe and stool smells(even stool size), chewing paw pads and even fleas. Their immune system defends them better. It also promotes a longer life span. Their attention span is better as they are more alert and ready to accept training. Imagine eating fried food from a fast food joint all your life. You are not going to be at your top performance even if you do exercise regularly.

      I would say do some research into dog food. You can google ingredient lists and their meanings. Find products that do not say "meal" or "by-product". Look for potato instead of rice as a fiber choice. You say it has been three days since you fed the grain free. I have a rescue that I adopted. He came off of Purina. He blew his coat and was not at a good weight. After three months of a raw based diet and grain free kibble he is; active, healthy, has a skinny coat, more alert/social and flea free(without any treatments). Imagine how your dog will be in a few months.

      I am giving you two links to the foods I feed. I in no way work for these companies or get paid by these companies. I only include them in this answer so you can see the menu and list of ingredients. You will also be able to read and follow links through these web pages that can give you more information and education on dog foods in general.

  4. QUESTION:
    What is canine Chronic hypersensitivity dermatitis and what treatments are available?
    My dog, Lady keeps having recurring outbreaks. The diagnosis was made by a lab from samples taken from the vet. Treatments with Prednisone 10mg have given some relief. After treatment Lady may stay cleared up for a couple of weeks but soon has a relapse. Of course with the treatments of Prednisone she inflates like a basketball and it causes her to be unable to control her bowel and bladder. Hair loss, and itching are prevalent prior to treatment. She has been on this current treatment at least 3 times but continues to have outbreaks.

    • ANSWER:
      Skin conditions in dogs can be a real bear to combat. There are literally hundreds of factors that can contribute to generally itchy or unhealthy skin - things eaten, things breathed in, things layed upon... it's a very frustrating problem, and I understand your desperation with your dog's condition, as one of my greyhounds suffer some of the same problems.

      This condition is often referred to as "atopy". In short, it's a predisposition to become allergic to normally innocuous substances, like pollens, molds, dust mites and other environmental allergens. It's estimated that only 3-12% of dogs have this condition.

      I'm assuming the diagnosis was made via skin biospy performed at your vet's office. It's unusual that the lab or your vet wouldn't then try to identify the irritating agent more in depth - often times they run a series of allergy tests to determine what steps should be taken to avoid contact with said irritants. The condition is rarely in remission and cannot be cured; it's simply a matter of maintaining as healthy a state as possible.

      Prednisone is the most common used form of controlling the discomfort associated with atopy, and sometimes you won't see a response for 3-6 months after starting, but if you're interested, there are some more natural methods that may help keep things under control. Sometimes, supplementing your dog's diet with essential fatty acids can help promote healthier skin and coat. Frequent bathing in shampoos labelled "antipruritic" can be beneficial. There's a great company based out of Wisconsin called Animals Apawthecary - they make a stellar formula called "Detox Blend" made specifically for chronic allergy sufferers that's manufactered with herbal remedies like burdock, dandelion, milk thistle and red clover.

      Best of luck with your dog - I really commend your effort to become more educated and do the best you can for her. I hope this response wasn't too long!

  5. QUESTION:
    cause and treatment for pediatric perioral dermatitis?
    My doctor has tried many, many creams for my 2 year old, some prescription some over the counter, nothing works. Now she's on a waiting list for a dermatologist, what do I do now? What can I use, what can I avoid?

    • ANSWER:
      I typed in my search bar "treatment for pediatric perioral dermatitis" and several sights came up with alot of information. This must be very frustrating to you and your baby. Until you can be seen by the dermatologist, search these sights so that you have as much knowledge about this condition as possible and what type of treatments can be expected. I hope this helps and I wish you and your baby best of luck!

  6. QUESTION:
    Treatments for seborrheic dermatitis?
    I am a 23 year old male and I have seborrheic dermatitis which mainly shows up around my nose. I've used the shampoos and it's not something I would be willing to do every day.

    A couple years ago a dermatologist prescribed Elidel and gave me a sample. I used the sample and it worked pretty well - the only thing that has worked. It burned a little at first but it treated my dry flaky skin around the nose, and I had to use it at least every other day in order to keep it under control.

    However I did not go and get the prescription because I did some research on Elidel and found that it was related to some cases of cancer. I also found that my seborrheic dermatitis might be caused by a food allergy. I would really like to use Elidel, or an alternative, but I am worried about the risk of cancer directly related to it.

    • ANSWER:
      Hello there. I suggest that you should try the herbal cream for seborrheic dermatitis by Salus2005. It is sold on eBay and it works faster and better than anything else for me.
      Best,
      Bernadette

  7. QUESTION:
    I have chronic contact dermatitis, does anyone know of any treatments for when it erupts?
    I have been to the Doctor and had patch tests done but they all seem to be useless and the doctors aren't listening to me when I explain what’s happening. I don’t know what is causing it, but i need something in the mean time to help with the pustules, sores, crusting and weeping. it’s really painful. Please someone help!

    • ANSWER:
      skin ailments are the most frustrating conditions because they are difficult to treat, they often have psychological reasons or are due to allergies or -none wants to hear that- a genetic predisposition.

      My advice:
      1) try to get a specialized dermatologist to see you when the problem is apparent.
      2) avoid all possible irritants/allergenic materials from fabric softener to textiles.
      3) avoid allergenic food
      4) make sure that you are in good health overall and do not stress too much, stress affects your skin more than you'd know

      5) make sure your skin is well moisturized. Use a dermatological moisturizer. Your skin is much more likely to be sensitive when it is dry. For a similar problem -that was very painful with bleeding, sores etc.- I used vaseline and I stopped using commercial soap [I use a pharmaceutical liquid cleaner that is more expensive but more gentle with my skin, you can find a variety of similar stuff at your drugstore].

      Maybe your problem is more serious than mine but for me, as long as I make sure that my skin is well moisturized and never gets dry it is perfectly healthy. It sounds too simple, I know, and I never believed I could solve my horrid looking sores by vaseline but it happened. At times I looked at my skin -at my arms- and I was sure it would never look normal again and now none would know I had this problem.

      Give it a go.

  8. QUESTION:
    Do you suffer from dermatitis causing eyebrow loss?
    For just over a year i've been losing 4-7 eyebrows daily..this ofcourse has added up and left patches in my eyebrow..particularly the inner sides, aswell as removed my confidence.

    It's dermatitis that's causing the eyebrow loss..skin under the eyebrows not so much flaking but sticking and oily..almost pushing out the eyebrows.

    I'd like to hear from anybody who's suffered from the same thing and what treatments they've explored and got results from.. anything that cuts back the loss of the eyebrows.

    I should note that i've had dermatitis on my scalp for the past 7 years..which i've treated with various coal tar shampoo's, creams ect. Just like the hairs on my scalp, the eyebrows do slowly grow back (taking several months longer to do so).. then dishearteningly fallout again. And it's got to the stage now where its very noticeable.

    Lately i've been placing aloe vera over them...which seems to leave the skin clearer but eyebrows sticky, and still losing my 4 per day min. I've also used apple cider (again sticky), nizoral, other coal tar shampoo's.

    I've visited the doctor several times during this year, thyroid, iron, blood, are all fine.

    • ANSWER:
      I think you should be seen by a specialist dermatologist (a doctor specialised in skin conditions). There could be many reasons why you are losing eyebrows. I don't want to be alarmist, but my mother discovered recently she had Lupus, which does affect hair - she's lost a lot of her wimpers, eyebrows and around the frame of her head. Lupus can be controlled, but it could also affect internal organs, so have it checked out, even if this is probably not what you are suffering with. Go to your doctor and discuss with him/her.

  9. QUESTION:
    what treatment worked to heal seborrhea dermatitis for you?
    have been given prescriptions for olux and FS Oil for seborrhea on scalp that seem to help but also allergic to perfumes and dyes can't seem to find a shampoo that doesn't irritate scalp and then cause flareups of dermatitis -- any ideas?

    • ANSWER:
      The main cause of SD is overreaction of the immune system. Identifying certain foods, chemicals, etc can be very helpful in battling this disease. I try to avoid soy and milk products which trigger my flare-ups.
      After using number of prescription drugs I've turned to the natural treatments.
      Now I use herbal remedies from serenaskin.com, which aim at the root of the disease - the immune system, and are steroid-free.
      After about 2 weeks of using ointment and spray my scalp has been cleared up and now I just continue with anti-eczema extract, which controls the immune system. My scalp has been clear for months now.
      It is the only treatment I have found that provides me complete relief when I use it as directed.

  10. QUESTION:
    stasis dermatitis?
    cause and treatments

    • ANSWER:
      Stasis dermatitis is common and results in swollen, itchy, discolored skin on the lower legs. It is usually caused by circulation problems as a person ages. Treatment depends on what is causing the statis to start with. Usually statis results due to excessive swelling and the cause of the swelling needs to be dealt with in order to treat the statis dermatitis.

      However, regardless of the cause, things that will help are:
      anti-embolic or elastic stockings
      elevating the legs higher than the heart as much as possible
      topical antibiotics if skin ulcers are present
      watching areas for signs of infection

  11. QUESTION:
    What is an effective treatment for seborrheic dermatitis?
    I have had experience with weeping sores on my scalp, and they don't seem to be getting better. I've looked up what can cause this, and the most likely candidate seems to be seborrheic dermatitis. The jury seems to be out on what causes it, but there seems to be a definite lean toward it being a fungal infection of the hair follicles. What would you recommend to treat this condition?

    • ANSWER:
      Hey..

      I'm currently suffering with this condition. It can be a cause from unbalanced hormones, a fungus on the skin, malnutrition, etc...

      Right now, I take a liquid multi vitamin (it's called VIBE). It worked pretty well but didn't start kicking in until maybe after.....4-5 weeks?

      I also put apple cider vinegar and tea tree oil on my skin. This helps with the fungus part... cleans it up real well and stops most of the flaking and redness for me. Just look it up on the web! ^_^

      I wish all the best to you. I had horrible hair loss from this disease. I'm now looking into eyebrow and scalp transplants! yikes...

  12. QUESTION:
    Does Dermatitis of the scalp cause hair loss?
    Has anyone else expreienced this and, if so, what shampoo/treatment did you use to ease the loss of hair? I'm back and forth with whether or not my hair loss is caused from medication, or Dermatitis.

    • ANSWER:
      Seborrheic dermatitis of the scalp is very common and characterized by scaling, itching and redness. Although this redness develops initially around hair follicles, seborrheic dermatitis has not been shown to cause permanent hair loss.

  13. QUESTION:
    Seborrheic dermatitis treatment?
    For several years I've had flakiness of the face and scalp and greasiness just hours after washing (especially if I straighten my naturally wavy hair). I wash my hair everyday in order to get rid of the flakes and grease, but it's also a catch-22 because I know that washing so frequently strips away any 'good' oils.

    Only recently did I visit a doctor and was informed of my seborrheic dermatitis. My doctor told me to try the Neutrogena T/Gel Shampoo because the inflammation of the scalp is what also affects the face (eyebrows, nose creases, cheeks). After the first wash I could see results: no more itchiness of the scalp and no flakes on my head and face! However, after a day or two the scalp starts up again and then my face, luckily the T/Gel is a daily shampoo so it was designed to be used that excessively.

    I think the T/Gel is working wonders, but it's still frustrating that I have to worry about the problem on a daily basis. Is there anything out there that's a more permanent solution or practice? (Also, what exactly is the cause of seborrheic dermatitis?)

    Additional Information:
    I've read that seborrheic dermatitis is the result of a weak immune system and/or the reaction to allergies; is any of this true? It may be helpful to note that I'm 'allergic' to a plethora of things, but only have obvious reactions to a few. Please let me know if any of the following may be contributing to the scalp/face issue: tomatos (migraines, acid reflux), eggs (upset stomach), citric acid (acid reflux), grapes, legumes, maltodextrin, potatoes, coconut, canola/palm oil, grass and wheat pollen. (Also, I can't have too much milk in anything but I'm not diagnosed lactose intolerant)

  15. QUESTION:
    Home remedies for seborrheic dermatitis (aka cradle cap)?
    I am 20 years, active and in college and have recently developed a terrible bout of seborrheic dermatitis. It is causing me severe discomfort and my hair to fall out. I was wondering if anyone knows of any good treatments for it.

    Thanks!

    • ANSWER:
      buy some baby oil, and apply a rather liberal amount to your scalp about a half hour before taking a bath. Rub it in then let it soak in really good. make sure you are using a moisturising shampoo & conditioner. for severe cases, do it at least three times a week.
      That is what i do with my residents at my job, when they have S.D. It will usually clear up in about two to three weeks depending on how bad it is. Then I maintain it by using Neutrogena T/Gel or by adding a drop or two of baby oil in their hair as i shampoo then follow with a regular shampoo and conditioning. T/GEL works great, but It smells medicinal so my residents prefer the baby oil instead.

  16. QUESTION:
    Does anyone know of any good experiments with graph results dealing with Seborrheic Dermatitis?
    I'm doing a paper on Seborrheic Dermatitis and I have to find a cause and effect experiment (maybe with control groups?) to include which have specific accompanying graphs. URLs would be fantastic. I need to have the procedure, hypothesis, a works cited, all of that. I already did a paper on it but I didn't find very many graphs to include, which could hurt my grade. I wanted to do one about the effects of crude honey on treating the disease but I couldn't find good graphs. I found great graphs about Scalpacin treatments, but not an actual procedure or precise information. I need ANY experiment with ANY multitude of related graphs.

  17. QUESTION:
    Could it be Miliary dermatitis?
    Could my cat have Miliary dermatitis? We have recently noticed that he has developed a lump on the back of his neck where you would insert flea treatment, the skin around it is crusty and the fur around it is receeding. It is not multiple lumps, only one single lump. Could anyone tell me if it is Miliary dermatitis. Could it be caused by a sudden change of diet, he is stray and we have been feeding him for a few weeks on a rich diet of whiskas wet food and milk. If it is Miliary dermatitis please can I have some advice on treatment. Is Miliary dermatitis contageous? We have four other cats and one that has recently given birth and is lactating. If it starts to spread I will take him to the vets but I don't want to take him unless I know it is serious, could it be just a bite from an insect or another cat, maybe he has been in a fight? Please help me!

    • ANSWER:
      First, don't give a cat milk, it will give him diarrhea and possibly cause vomiting.

      There are many things that could cause this lump, some contagious, some not. The only way to know for sure what's going on is to see a vet- the sooner the better.

  18. QUESTION:
    how to rid my cat of fleas?
    My cat has had every kind of health check and vaccinations needed, he has been deflead every month since ive had him which is 10mths, I had never seen or felt a flea bite, due to an accident he spent the day & night at the vets to have an operation on his mouth, since comeing home from there he has had a flea infection and dermatitis caused by the fleas, I took him back for a check up and thats what the vet told me he had I received tablets from them and I deflead him again, the dermatitis gradually went away after using frontline, flea powder deworming & bathing him,this all happened in august this year, he seemed normal up to about 5 weeks ago I kept finding fleas, and earmites, I got rid of the earmites, some where in his whiskers too, but the fleas just dont seem to go away, all through this period he had not been near another animal, the house has been treated, and sprayed till I nearly poisoned myself with it, I hoover every day thouroghly, and have not found a flea in the house for the past week, since I have kept my cat outdoors, mainly because of the spray, and he has still got fleas every day I keep finding them, he is a happy cat eats well etc; its just the fleas what else can I do, they are driving me nuts, is it possible he is immune to these flea treatments, and how come they don't drown when he has a bath, please help, I am thinking of giving him away as the fleas are too much for me to bear I have a phobia about insect to start with and do not want to keep him outside forever.
    We are in the uk. I used spot on the first month, and he has had frontline for the past 9 months, every month, plus flea powder, that is whats worrying me what else can I do. thanks to you both for answers, but no solution as yet,
    thanks firefoxx sounds as good as the other answers, with the addition of the flea collar in the bag, though Ive been throwing them out daily, will save a few pounds doing that. Ive had three cat and two dogs in my life this is a first for me, the fleas that is.

    • ANSWER:
      Yes, you can get rid of the fleas forever..what you do is get lots and lots of baking soda, and powder down your house with it, on the bedding, all over the carpet, on the floors, just get baking soda everywhere, and when you clean, put more down. It takes anywhere from 4-6 weeks for all the eggs to die...but your house will never be able to harbor fleas again..baking soda is non-toxic and will not hurt the animals, but fleas eat it and swell up with water, and die of a potassium deficiency, they cannot become immune to this. In the meantime, get a good flea comb, comb your cat...and dip the flea comb in some soapy water to kill the live fleas. Also a cat indoor can live 20 years, the average lifetime of an outdoor cat is 1-3 years.to keep fleas from jumping on you when you clean the cat, just spray some vinegar water on your clothes, you'll smell like a salad, but fleas hate vinegar. As far as baths, you have to soap down the animal real well, then wait 7 minutes before the fleas die...your pro not waiting long enough, but a flea comb is preferable.

  19. QUESTION:
    Is it possible to quell a flea problem before it becomes an infestation?
    I recently found 2 fleas on one of my cats and while I never saw any fleas on the second cat she appeared to have skin irritation that resembled dermatitis caused by a flea allergy. Both cats were also grooming excessively. I checked both cats thoroughly for fleas and flea dirt to no avail. I also took the precaution of treating them with flea spray and at the time of the treatment I still couldn't find a single flea, alive or dead. Both cats have resumed their normal grooming habits but I'm still concerned for their health and well being. I've always been under the assumption that even if only a few fleas are found that it's likely that there are many more. So my question is, how probable is it (if at all) that the cats had only a few fleas and we got lucky enough to catch them before an infestation could develop?

    • ANSWER:
      Go to your vet or go online and buy some Revolution for cats. It's a topical product that you apply to their skin by parting the hair between their shoulder blades. Very easy, it lasts for a month, and used monthly, it prevents roundworm and ear mites as well. If your kitties go outside, you should just use it every month and you will never have a problem. You need to know how much your cats weigh, since the dosage is based on weight, and if you buy online be careful to choose the cat product. Don't mix it with any other product and don't use flea products for dogs, as they can kill cats.

      Vacumm your house thoroughly and throw the bag in the trash immediately to get rid of any fleas that might be in your home.

    I have seborrheic dermatitis, and, like probably everyone else that has it, I hate it. I'm trying to do exercise to improve my health, and have been trying for a long time, but the effects of it make it really hard to not quit because of all the itching that is very bothersome to me, so I'd just rather not exercise. I just wanna know, is there anything up and coming in terms of medicines to treat it? Have they already found out what really causes it? I take a couple of medicines that have been prescribed and they really only help at the beginning, but when I'm forced to take them only twice/week as the doctor prescribed, they don't help. Any suggestions are appreciated.

  21. QUESTION:
    Dermatitis diagnosis.?
    In May 2007 I was diagnosed with contact dermatitis and I was perscribed "Doxycycl" by my doctor. After taking the drug for two months I developed a severe allergy to it which resulted in having itchy red splotches on my chest. I stopped taking the drug, but I still suffer from a reddish brown rash on my face, which the drug never cleared up.

    My skin is dry, yet it becomes oily overnight while I sleep. It is not thick, nor is it itchy. I have researched several dermatitis conditions on-line, yet what I have does not seem to match anything that I am reading. I have tried several at home treatments, tea tree oil, anti-fungal cream, etc. These have helped a little but not very much. I have tried to moisturize it, as I know that this is supposed to be an important step, but every lotion I use causes it to burn and become even more red.

    Based on what I have read I do not even know if I really have dermatitis. Can anyone help?

    • ANSWER:
      1] quit using everything, except face wash for sensitive skin
      [ no colors or perfumes ], and moisturizer for sensitive skin. Wash in warm, not cold or hot water.
      2] wash everything that contacts your body [ towels, clothing, bedding ], in hypoallergenic detergent and dryer sheets [ no perfumes or colors added ].
      3] use shampoo and conditioner for sensitive skin
      4] try pure aloe vera gel [ health food store ] twice a day for a week
      5] If no improvement, try cortisone cream two or three times a day for a week
      6] take a mulitivitamin with minerals every day
      7] drink 1/2 gallon of water a day
      8] avoid all fried, fast, and junk food - even diet junk food. Eat healthy oils [ olive, wheat germ, omega 3 ] in salad dressings
      See a dermatologist if no improvement.

  22. QUESTION:
    Peugeot 206 and dermatitis?
    I have developed a patch of dermatitis on the palm of my left hand, where I operate the gear lever of my Peugeot 206. Doctor's treatments didn't work until I started wearing a glove while driving. Now it's improving.
    It seems ridiculous that there should be a connection, but what else could it be? And if it actually is the cause, then it needs to be flagged up.
    Has anyone else noticed a similar problem?

    • ANSWER:
      There are several plastics that can cause an "inflammation of the skin" with prolonged exposure to skin cells and moisture. Please do a medical swab of the knob and have it checked at the same time as your next appointment. The decorative groves make for a great natural petri dish.

      A high end Automotive like yours would know this, so I would think someone else than the manufacture put the knob on the Peugeot.

      I have ran into the same thing with all kinds of plastics over the years, as I am more sensitive than most to the bacteria. I have found that silver retards the growth of bacteria, so I use silver knobs on my shifter.

  23. QUESTION:
    Facial Skin Rash, What is it and the what causes it?
    Hi, For years now I have flare ups of skins rashes (red, scaley and occasionally itchy) which mainly occurs around the fold of the nose, under the nose, eyebrows, above the cheeks, side of the face and neck. Now from what I have read it sounds like Seborrhoeic Dermatits however I also get these flare ups when i use a certain hair product i.e american crew, put on a medical product i.e arnica gel etc, which could also fall into the category of contact dermatitis. Is it possible to have a combination of the two?

    I know I should see a dermatologist and believe me I am trying to but in the mean time does anyone suffer from the same symptoms and what are the best treatments you have found so far?

    FYI I use hydrocortisone cream 1% to treat it which is ok and I know not meant for the face. Also when I'm in the sun i.e on Holiday/Vacation the problem disappears completely.

    Thanks

    • ANSWER:
      You are correct. You have seborrheic dermatitis. A contact dermatitis wouldn't be localized to only those areas that you've mentioned. And, hydrocortisone is relatively safe for the face, as it's not a fluorinated cortisone, so it has less chance of causing skin problems. But even so, use it cautiously. PS..sunlight is anti-inflammatory,so inflammatory conditions would be expected to resolve in sunlight.

  24. QUESTION:
    How to treat Chronic Skin Rash all over body, yeast?
    My mom, in her 80's cannot sleep properly, has itching on her arms legs and back that feels like bees sting you. Im sure its yeast. I have tried olive leaf extract but its hard to get her to do enough to do any good...

    Im not interested in a topical treatment or referring her to a dermatoligists, she's been there. They said dermatitis and yeast. Dermatitis wow! Then prescribed 0 a tube medicine that wouldnt last 1 day and whose sample did no good. Topical treatment are only temporary. I need to get to the cause of the problem..

    I have suggested a colon cleanse, or colonics but she wont listen..

    Has anyone had similar experience, how did you treat it, and how do you get someone that won't listen because "thinking about it makes her itch and she's scared of doing to much.. Doesnt understand herbal treatment..

    I am open to medical rx treatments but not topically..

    • ANSWER:
      how about some good tasting yogurt with some powdered probiotics added into it.

      there are many anti fungals on the market, but expensive, as you already know. i would be cautious with the diflucan as it can be contraindicated if you are on certain other medications.

      try decreasing if not eliminating wheat from her diet.

      warm baths with ten drops of pure lavendar oil, or tea tree oil are anti fungal, anti viral as well as anti bacterial.

  25. QUESTION:
    Contact Dermatitis on my eyelid! Please HELP!?
    Hey all... I've had contact dermatitis on my eyelid for a few months now. I didn't know what it was at first, and was out of state so it took me awhile to see my dermatologist. I went about 3 weeks ago and I've been on ongoing treatments of Prednisone (5mg) tablets as well as Locoid cream (0.1%). It went away the first week, but then came back. Now on my second week of steroids, it is still spreading and has moved under my eyelid. It itches like crazy and I've lost almost all my eyelashes on my left eye. I hardly ever wear makeup, so I'm not sure what has caused it. I'm worried because it is still spreading while I am on my treatment. Does ANYONE have any suggestions? Have any of you ever had something like this? It's a terrible confidence lower. :-(
    I haven't been using any new products at all. I've even been afraid to wash my face or moisturize. I've used Cetaphil for sensitive skin for years. I have not been wearing makeup at all and when I do rub my eyes, I use a tissue. It doesn't look as bad as it did when I first whent to the doctor (my eyelid was practically purple and swollen shut). It is still spreading though. UGH!

    • ANSWER:
      I doubt there's anyone here that can help as much as your dermatologist. They go to medical school, complete internships, residencies, fellowships, all to provide you with knowledgeable, competent care. While on prescription medication, trying a "home remedy" could actually cause more of a problem. Doubt you want that.
      But maybe it's not "contact" derm. Maybe it's a newly developed allergy.
      Stick with your doc.
      However, if you insist, I have been told that taping a penny to cover the effected area, relieves itching and burning. Not a joke, something about the copper. So, try it tonight. Who knows?

  26. QUESTION:
    Need help with Atopic Dermatitis.Anyone with similar case in the family?
    My niece has an allergy that has been diagnosed as Atopic Dermatitis. It started three months after she was born. It started off with rashes and on skin folds like inside elbow, behind kness etc After treatment of three years of anti allergy and skin creams,aprt from her skin it transfered to her respiratory. which included severe sneezing, watery eyes,and lot of plegm in the respiratory tract for which she takes inhalers and nasal spray like the ones used in asthma. She is seven now and she is suffering a lot and we are unable to find out a cause for this allergy. Apart from the respiratory problem She still gets rashes on skin (all over body) We tried Homeopathy also. The doctors say it could be due to pollens or dust or any other reason which we are unable to pinpoint. We are unable to find the right kind of medication for her. Could anyone tell us if this is curable or is this a life long problem.And also which field of medecine has the best remedy for this problem.

    • ANSWER:
      1. All eczema is commonly due to allergies and dry skin combined.
      2. All alergies has resistance levels. This means if you give a product today and it was OK then that does not mean that person is not allergetic to it. Tomorow the same product can trigger allergies.
      3. Protiens are the source of major allergies. Try to introduce protien rich food later. Also avoid milk, potatoes, wheat, eggs (esp. whites), sea-food, food colors, artificial food favorings and nuts.
      4. Keep the child away if you are cooking in your home. I found that the smell of allergy causing food also creates allergies.
      5. Keep a log of daily activities including food / drinks, motion and irritations. If you keep the log it will be easier to find the problem foods.
      6. Give one food for one week without switching. Start with rice and carrots or rice and broccoli (choose one). Give the same food for a week. If severe allergies are noted then remove it from diet and introduce a new one. Any one food introduced should be given continously for 1 week.
      7. After giving a bath pat with a towel slightly leaving a film of water in the skin. Seal that to skin by applying thick gel like plain Vaseline. Many creams also create allergies so be careful in using creams other than plain unscented Vaseline. Also do not use the baby oil - many kids are allergic to mineral oil.
      8. The allergies becomes severe if you reintroduce the same allergic food again and again but may go away if you remove it from diet for long periods like more than a month.
      9. Angry and sad moods of child make the situation worse. I know that a child with eczema takes parens to the edge and many times we may become harsh. Try to keep your child happy.
      10. An unconventional treatment, NAET (http://www.naet.org) worked well for my grandson. For people I have referred it did not work well since it depends a lot on the practitioner. For my daughter we did not take treatment since we knew a lot about eczema and could control it well.
      11. It is late to tell you but it is best to introduce the solids a little late to kids with eczema.
      12. If your child has severe itch, ask him/her to scratch using the back of the nails by scratching backwards (in the opposite direction of normal scratch). You can also scratch him like that. Less damage occurs by scratching reverse.
      Please see the webpages for more details on Atopic Dermatitis.

    I've washed my face with soap, cleaned it with astringent lotion and also used a lotion that has salicylic acid and used a cream that has 10 % benzoyl peroxide (which caused contact dermatitis).

  29. QUESTION:
    Scabs on my scalp? Help needed?
    I cannot take this anymore. I'm 18 and I've had these scabs on my head since I was 16. They are like the typical yellow scabs and you scratch it off and it bleeds kind. They have no reason to be there though because I wash my hair thoroughly everyday. I've even used treatments from dermatitis doctors and nothing. Is it cause of some bacteria growing in my scalp or what? Either way I just need help from someone to put this to an end. I've even cut all my hair off and still nothing to do with that.

  30. QUESTION:
    Has anyone used a natural remedy for cat dermatitis ?
    I am interested in trying a natural regamin of food and treatment for my cat's dermatitis. I am disposing of all commercial cat treats and changing her litter to a pine type.
    She has been on Purina cat chow (on the vets advice) but it comes and goes and is really bad now. She goes berserk when I try to put the Panalog on her an put the drops in her. I don't seem to be acheiving anything except spending money I can't afford. If I can help her in a natural way I would like to try.
    Although I don't think she has fleas I am going to give her a treatment just in case. Ideas about cleaning products ,food,litter etc that might be causing the problem and home cures would be appreciated.

    • ANSWER:
      First please do not use pine litter. there sense of smell is great and that is just not good for them
      You had the right idea..Food is probably ther problem
      Cats are carnivores and many have trouble processing grains
      Want to give treats? then a piece of chicken is great. They all sell drie out plain fish treats
      A vet recommending cat chow shouldn't even be a vet. rea the label Learn about nutrtion and you should solve this problem

      Nutrition since there are so many bad things out there is very important to your cat’s health
      Contrary to what you may have heard; dry foods are not a great thing to feed a cat.
      Please read the label on what you are feeding? What are the ingredients? Do you know what they mean? Is the first ingrdiant a muscle meat like chicken or meal or other things?
      http://www.catinfo.org/#Learn_How_To_Read_a_Pet_Food_Ingredient_Label
      http://iml.jou.ufl.edu/projects/Spring04/Perhach/PetFood/InterpretingLabels.htm
      Dry foods are the number 1 cause of diabetes in cats as well as being a huge contributing factor to kidney disease, obesity, crystals, u.t.i’s and a host of other problems. Food allergies are very common when feeding dry foods. Rashes, scabs behind the tail and on the chin are all symptoms
      The problems associated with Dry food is that they are loaded with grains and carbohydrates which many cats (carnivores) cannot process. Also, Most of the moisture a cat needs is suppose to be in the food but in
      Dry, 95% of it is zapped out of dry foods in the processing. Another thing, most use horrible ingredients and don't use a muscle meat as the primary ingredient and use vegetable based protein versus animal. Not good for an animal that has to eat meat to survive.
      http://www.catinfo.org/#My_Cat_is_Doing_Just_Fine_on_Dry_Food
      You want to pick a canned food w/o gravy (gravy=carbs) that uses a muscle meat as the first ingredient and doesn't have corn at least in the first 3 ingredients if at all. The best food for cats does not contain any grains at all.
      Fancy feast is a middle grade food with 9lives, friskies whiskas lower grade canned and wellness and merrick upper grade human quality foods. I would rather feed a middle grade canned food then the top of the line dry food.
      Also, dry food is not proven to be better for teeth. Does a hard pretzel clean your teeth or do pieces of it get stuck? http://www.felinefuture.com/nutrition/bpo_ch4a.php

      Please read about cat nutrition.
      http://www.newdestiny.us/nutritionbasics.html
      http://www.catinfo.org/feline_obesity.htm
      http://maxshouse.com/feline_nutrition.htm#Dry_Food_vs_Canned_Food.__Which_is_reall

      Vetinarian diets The reason your vet thinks so highly of the pet food they sell probably has more to do with money than nutrition. In vet school, the only classes offered on nutrition usually last a few weeks, and are taught by representatives from the pet food companies. Vet students may also receive free food for their own dogs and cats at home. They could get an Iams notebook, a Purina purse and some free pizza. http://iml.jou.ufl.edu/projects/Spring04/Perhach/PetFood/Vets.htm

Best Cream For Eczema On Face

As we know, there are more and more people become the chronic of Eczema and live with itch, scratch and application in the rest of their life. They try their best to see many doctors with various traditional remedies on their body and want to seek a fast way to overcome the disease all the time. But the only result they can acquire is to continue suffering endless pain. However, the publication of Eczema indeed gives a gleam of shine to those patients who had been living in darkness. It shows a large number of applied advices to the sufferers include kids.

All the advices are from the experience of writer and the visitors who have visited writer's website as being troubled with eczema for quite a long time. Just because of that, the advices are more natural, healthy and effective than the doctors' prescription.

It suggests the adult sufferers three points to cure eczema. First of all, you can use bag balm to apply your pathological skin before going to sleep. It will be a effective way for relieveing your distress as long as you keep doing it constantly. The second way is to take a bath with multiple oatmeal twice a day instead of bag balm after bathe. The most valuable way I think is to do more exercise for enhancing the ability of self-defense.

Apart from adult, it also gives a lot of suggestions to kids. For example, it ask parents to keep the bed of their kids in 100% cotton as kids skin is soft and weak so that it is easy to get effected by outside substance. The second way seems like the adult way to let baby have a bath twice a day, but their biggest difference is that whether use chemical in water. It is absolutely wrong to use chemical on baby's delicate skin.

There are still more informations in the book Beat Eczema. You can be going to focus on the ebook, if you have interests on it.

    • ANSWER:
      Hi,

      Eczema is fairly easy to cure. You can watch this video of a cure used in Japan. It does take a few months, and if you had been using steroids, it will take a few more weeks.

      http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dxLW-HKgQzU&feature=channel_page

      You can place a wanted add on http://craigslist.com and will usually be able to ask for some 8.5 PH drinking water and get a response. I make alkaline water at home in a processor that will also make the 2.5 PH water used to treat eczema on the skin. You drink the 8.5 - 9.0 PH water, and then treat the skin with the 2.5 PH water. Keep the skin damp with the 2.5 PH water for several hours a day, and the skin will clear up in about 3 months. You will start to see it clear up in a month or so.

      Good Luck!

    Worlds best eczema cream? (what really works)?
    i am a 13 year old girl and i have bad eczema on my legs. i have used so many products but nothing works! right know i use Hydrocortisone 1% and that helps only a little and i tried Aloe Vera the gel that i have planted in my backyard and i used it for 1 week and it works really good! but i want to know is there anything better to use to make it go away and fast!

    • ANSWER:
      We use curelle lotion and dove soap on our son. Never use real soap as it severely dries out your skin. Always put lotion on right after you bathe while your skin is still a little wet so it absorbs the lotion better. Try not to take baths or showers that are too hot because it will dry the skin out also.

    • ANSWER:
      Hi Rose

  10. QUESTION:
    Best cream for Eczema?
    My step son has Eczema really bad and its the worst on his face. His mom has him on all these creams and oral medicine that never seem to work. He scratches all the time and gives himself cuts, On his chin it will get scabby and nasty looking and he has dry itchy patches on his body. Has anyone ever had a kid with Eczema? WHat did you use to take care of it?

    • ANSWER:
      I've had eczema since I was an infant. I really feel for your stepson; I know what he's going through.

      Mine is under control and has been for about six years, ever since I began phototherapy. Very briefly, there's a chain of events in the immune system that causes eczema. Somehow the light breaks the chain -- no one knows why. The downside of light is it takes a couple of months to take effect. But I'm convinced it's my best long-term treatment.

      You have to be careful with ointments / creams to the face. Facial skin is thinner and strong steroids can quickly (and sometimes permanently) damage the underlying layer of fat. I feel steroids are fine for the rest of the body, but not the face. For the face, I like immunomodulators, like Elidel and Protopic. Short term, Cyclosporine might be an option. It worked great on me, but it has grave side effects. Finding a doctor who will prescribe it may be difficult, especially for a kid.

      My recommendation is to take him to a really good dermatologist, one that can provide phototherapy. They're not that common, but I think universities with medical schools usually have them, especially if they do a lot of research. (I live in the DC area and go to George Washington University Hospital.) I go once a week, but early on I went twice or three times weekly. Going is a hassle, but it works, so I make the time.

      Finally, I want to urge you to do as much as you possibly can for your stepson. I can tell you from personal experience my life profoundly changed when I was able to control my eczema. I probably still carry the scars of self-consciousness and feelings of inferiority long after the physical scars have healed. I had to exclude myself from activities because of it, and that hurt like hell. I'm OK; don't worry about me. But no one should have to go through that. I can't urge you strongly enough to be as aggresive as you know how in treating his eczema.

      I wish you all the best of luck.

  12. QUESTION:
    What is best cream to use for atopic eczema?
    I only have it on one part of my hand but it drives me mad as it's so itchy.

    • ANSWER:
      I have friends who suffer from this! Have you tried using anything from Arbonne? The shower gel and body cream have been very helpful - for them.

      Whatever you use do not use anything with mineral oil in the cream. It hardens your skin not softens - get soothing soap -

  13. QUESTION:
    What is the best ointment/cream that helps reduce eczema?
    ive had eczema on my upper thigh for my whole life.
    it itches most of the time and ive went to the doctors 7 times and they keep supplying me ointments and creams which only work for a week to reduce iching but then it comes back again.
    is there a popular eczema cream that works well for my type of eczema?

    • ANSWER:
      I've had eczema my entire life, on my face, hands, body - bloody nightmare!

      I've had so many creams / ointments over the years and similarly to you - most seem to work initially and then just have little or no effect.

      I'd hate to work out how much money I've spent on new and expensive solutions, none of which have ever had any real success - every time someone tells me there is something I should try I'm running to the shops to buy it!

      In truth the only thing that has ever given me a constant solution to my eczema is a combination of cream prescribed by the doctor (hydroquortisone for most cases, a stronger steroid cream for the worst bits) and a hell of a lot of E45 - I absolutely swear by the stuff, and it's around the cheapest moisturiser out there, bonus!

      The problem with eczema creams is that they dry out the area they are treating, so they need to be used in conjunction with a really good moisturiser, and E45 is the absolute ideal as it is so gentle and rich.

      Another good option would be to add some Oilatum (or similar) to your bath - it's a really soft and lovely oil which can give great relief.

      Hope that might be some help, I know what a pain eczema can be - hope yours goes away sometime soon. x

  14. QUESTION:
    what is the best cream to get clear of eczema for good?
    i have tried everything and nothing seems 2 work! my doctor keeps trying all different creams but they don't work and i have even been to the dermatology and they gave me red paint and double l base and it worked for a while then it came back.

    • ANSWER:
      It's horses for courses as they say. What works well for one doesn't necessarily work for another (with the exception of maybe steroidal medications; and those do more harm than good). You may want to try anti-eczema cream and spray from champori.com : it is the best medicine for eczema in my book (it's herbal and it's been keeping me clear for more than a year now). If it doesn't work for you - it's free: they have money back guarantee.
      Best,
      Tami

  15. QUESTION:
    Whats the best cream for eczema? 10 points. =)?
    thankyuu guys! :D

    • ANSWER:
      The main cause of eczema is overreaction of the immune system. Identifying certain foods, chemicals, etc can be very helpful in battling this disease. I try to avoid soy and milk products which trigger my flare-ups.
      After using number of prescription drugs I've turned to the natural treatments.
      Now I use herbal remedies from serenaskin.com, which aim at the root of the disease - the immune system, and are steroid-free.
      After about 2 weeks of using ointment and spray my skin has been cleared up and now I just continue with anti-eczema extract, which controls the immune system. My skin has been clear for months now.
      It is the only treatment I have found that provides me complete relief when I use it as directed.

  17. QUESTION:
    Best cream for someone with eczema?
    I have eczema and have tried many creams. I don't like Cetaphil, it seems to light for me. I'm currently halfway through a large bottle of Eucerin, and it seems to work only if I use it every day. My doctor says it's just trial and error, because of the many creams being developed right now, and I wanted to know what works for you.

    • ANSWER:
      I have asked this question at an eczema and psoriasis treatment center. Best creams are aquaphilic/hydrophilic, eucerin, cetaphil, and cerave. No one cream is best for all eczema patients, so it is best to see what works for you. If you want a prescription, the most common for eczema are clobetasol and tar products with phototherapy: http://www.phototherapystore.com/

  24. QUESTION:
    what is the best cream to use for Eczema?

    • ANSWER:
      The ONLY thing that cleared my son's eczema was Ohio Valley's Wild'erb Salve. It's a really thick and solid almost...petroleum jelly. It smells wonderful and my son loves for me to put it on. The jumpy toddler whose always on the go sits still and smiles as I put it on his cheeks.

      I've made it part of our nap time and bed time routines...he really loves it. Plus, he had the classic pimples in the middle of the rough patchs. Nothing would get rid of the pimples! And, the docs script only made his cheeks feel like sandpaper.

      In one week the pimples are nearly gone. They are healing and by the weekend they look like they'll finally be gone. I only wish I had done this sooner!!

      I tried all the creams - the petroleum jelly, eucrin etc. from the drug store. They would help the chaffing - momentarily. They never healed it. This salve heals the skin.

  25. QUESTION:
    What's the best topical cream for eczema? Or any other treatments to make it go away?

    • ANSWER:
      Eczema is a skin condition characterized by redness, cracking, oozing and scaling of the skin. This may be caused by the extremes of heat and cold and even emotional stress. The patient usually complains of itching and burning in the skin, especially at the night. Sores appear on various parts of the body, but most often on the hands, feet, ears and legs. Eczema may come on at any time of life and in either sex. The commoner manifestations are erythema changing to papule, vesicle, crust, scale and fissure, with serous exudation. In chronic cases, thick scales accumulate.

      * Oatmeal bath is useful for patients suffering from eczema. For the bath, pour 2 cups of colloidal oatmeal into a tub of lukewarm water
      * Cotton clothing is the best for the skin and is much better than either wool or polyester, especially wool. Avoid synthetics or itchy fabrics, as well as tight- or ill-fitting clothes.
      * Daily bathing is not necessary, as it tends to make alreadydry skin even drier. Instead, you can sponge bathe the parts of the body that really need it--the hands, face, neck, armpits and (for babies) the diaper area.
      * A moisturizer or soap should be avoided as they can contain fragrances that will trigger a flare-up of eczema. Look for products that are fragrance-free.
      * Avoid overdressing your child unnecessarily at night, because getting too hot can make the rash worse.
      * Stress can trigger eczema or make it worse. Try to reduce the stress.
      * Make a paste by adding 1 tsp camphor to 1-teaspoon sandalwood and apply on the affected eczema areas.
      * Make a paste by rubbing a nutmeg against a smooth stone slab with a little water and. Apply to affected eczema area.
      * Apply Crisco 2-3 times a day is said to not only make you greasy, but eczema free.
      * Coconut oil may be applied to the areas with eczema.
      * Add carrot juice and spinach juice and apply to the affected area.
      * Drink plenty of water and take fruit juices like orange.
      * Make a paste by adding 1 tbls turmeric powder to a tbls of bitter neem leaves. Apply to the affected areas.
      * Deficiency of vitamin B6 may also cause eczema. So increase your intake of vitamin B6.
      * Evening primrose oil can also help. It contains gamma-linolenic acid (GLA), which is helpful in curing the eczema.
      * Take watercress every day. It helps to cure the eczema, along with a daily drink of parsley, spinach, celery, and wheat grass.
      * Add 1 Tbsp. Vinegar,1 Tbsp. Honey. Mix together with water and drink all at once.
      * Neem has been used for treating all sorts of skin problems for centuries. It contains Nimbidol and Gedunin, which have excellent fungicidal properties. Crush some neem leaves and apply to the affected area. It will immediately give relief.
      * Basil (tulsi) is extremely effective in treating skin disorders as it is a blood purifier and kills bacteria.
      * Crush the garlic clove and mix it with half a cup of hot water in a pan. Soak a clean washcloth in the solution and then apply to the affected areas only.
      * Add five drops of castor oil in half a cup of any fruit or vegetable juice, or plain water, and take on an empty stomach in the morning, is beneficial for any kind of skin disease.
      * One or two bananas a day are useful for those who are allergic to certain foods and who consequently suffer from skin rashes, such as in eczema.
      * Foods which should be excluded from the diet are tea, coffee, chocolate, cola drinks, alcohol, sugar and products made from it, refined cereals, meats, fish, chicken, tobacco, milk, cheese, butter, smoked and salted pickled foods, and foods containing any chemical additives, preservatives and flavorings.
      * Try to do some prevention techniques such as relaxation, exercise, meditation, and mind control.

    What is the best skin cream to use for baby eczema?
    Nothing seems to be helping my 10 month old son with his eczema. He is so red and itchy...is there anything that can bring him relief besides hydrocortisone which isn't even helping?

    • ANSWER:
      Try bathing and washing only with oats that you have put through a blender (thats what aveeno is....) and then get some shikai borage oil cream

      http://www.shikai.com/products/borage.htm

      I've worked at a health food store for 10 years, and people consistantly like this stuff...

      If you have a hard time finding it at a health food store, some target stores sell the one for diabetics in the foot care section, its the same stuff, only packaged differently.

      Also, make sure you use free and clear detergent on all the stuff that touches your babies skin....perfume and dyes are notorious for irritating skin conditions.

    I've heard this is the best cream for eczema and I'm dying to try it, unfortunately it's a British product. Does anyone know where I can buy it in the LA area or know of a website that will ship to the US? Thanks!

    • ANSWER:
      I have been scouring the internet looking at sites for this when I came across your posting. I did find 2 listings on ebay but the cheapest I've been able to find it, once you combine international shipping that is, is superliving.co.uk. I believe the link to the oilatum is http://www.superliving.co.uk/index.php?option=com_virtuemart&category_id=67&flypage=shop.flypage&manufacturer_id=200&page=shop.product_details&product_id=2289&Itemid=45&vmcchk=1&Itemid=45

      The cost of it there is .75 and I believe shipping to the States is roughly .50 so not bad compared to other sites. Hope that helped.

    Best OTC Cream For Eczema?
    I've had eczema since i was 6, and I'm 14 now.My physician prescribed me to steroid creams that caused my skin to become thick and leathery. There are so many options for OTC eczema creams, but i dont know which one to buy.(Spectro, Aveeno) I have severe eczema and it really makes me self conscious. I have to wear long sleeves and long pants in the summer, while my friends are in short shorts and a tanktop. :(

      I feel for you :( I had horrible eczema and they put me on steroid cream and pills :( but I recommend cetaphil. It's in a lil plastic jar. After you take a shower, before you completely dry off put cetaphil on the effected areas so it will lock in moisture since ezcema is excessively dry skin.

Natural Eczema Remedies - Proven Home Remedies for Eczema That Work

Eczema is a painful and irritating skin disease that can be cured if treated correctly (especially when natural eczema remedies are used, which is what I'll discuss later on in this article). It typically affects infants and children, although symptoms can be seen all the way up and through adulthood. Not only that, but some people don't get eczema until they get older.

Eczema symptoms can vary from person to person, but they usually have similar characteristics. You can spot eczema by itchiness, redness or dry, leathery and scaly looking skin. Worse off, if you constantly scratch eczema, it can make it ooze and cause more pain overall.

Thankfully, there are a number of ways to eliminate eczema and keep it under control. The most logical step in treatment is to take a trip to your family doctor to be properly diagnosed. At this point, your doctor is likely to prescribe a cream or ointment to use for your eczema. The downfall here is that this medicine is filled with powerful chemicals which can cause eczema to react worse and should only be used in extreme cases. This is where many people turn to natural eczema remedies to help treat and control their eczema.

There are a variety of natural eczema remedies. One, for example, is to avoid any stress or environmental allergens and chemicals, as these can all trigger eczema to flare up. Another effective natural eczema remedy is to keep your body hydrated at all times. Don't take long showers or baths (as this dries out the skin) and drink plenty of water daily. Only use natural creams and ointments on the skin to help soothe it and ease the pain.

Oatmeal is another amazing home remedy for eczema. It can be made into a cream that will help soothe your skin and relieve the itching often associated with eczema. Or, it can be mixed in with warm bath water. To do this, add a cup or two of raw oatmeal to a bathtub of warm water. Let your body soak in it for roughly 20 to 30 minutes to help ease itching and pain.

Lastly, one thing everyone dealing with eczema must look at their diet. Believe it or not, certain foods can help ease symptoms. With that said, you also need to be aware of the foods that can also cause your eczema to flare up, too. Food preservatives, dairy and any foods containing gluten can cause eczema to have an adverse reaction. Various vitamins and supplements can help the skin. In fact, vitamins like A and E are popular natural eczema remedies and are also quite effective.

Remember - If you're going to treat your eczema, it's been shown and proven that natural eczema remedies are safer than most prescription creams and ointments. Plus, there are less side effects to worry about with natural eczema remedies. As long as you know how to use them properly, natural eczema treatments can help you finally get your eczema under control!

Frequently Asked Questions

  1. QUESTION:
    Are there any home remedies for eczema?
    I have a tiny patch of eczema on my chin and I want it gone. I've gotten this before, on and off for the past 5 years. Usually it goes away on its own, but I am sick of looking at it and feeling it. Does anyone know of any good home remedies that might get rid of it, or at least reduce its severity?

    • ANSWER:
      I HAVE NEVER FOUND COCOA/SHEA BUTTER TO WORK, ALTHOUGH MY DOCTOR AND FAMILY TELL THEY WORK FOR THEM, YOU COULD TRY THOSE. I USED TO HAVE ECZEMA REALLY BAD ON MY SCALP AND MY MOM SAID SHE USED TO PUT OLIVE OIL ON IT AND IT HELPED SHE SAID (WHICH IT OBVIOUSLY HAS BECAUSE I CURRENTLY DO NOT HAVE ECZEMA ON MY SCALP AND I DON'T REMEMBER B/C I WAS SO YOUNG). AFTER YOU WASH YOUR FACE PUT BABY OIL, VASELINE (BRAND) LOTION-- THE ORIGINAL VERSION--, OR PETROLEUM JELLY (VASELINE), THOSE ARE WHAT WORK FOR MY SKIN ALWAYS.

  2. QUESTION:
    Does anyone have any home remedies for Eczema?
    I have eczema on my arms (right near my shoulders), Anyways, I am looking for some home remedies that will relieve the irritation and the itchiness.

      good luck

  3. QUESTION:
    Does anyone know any home remedies for eczema?
    I have mild eczema on my feet that is quite bothersome. I don't think it's bad enough to warrant prescription medication and I don't feel like seeing a doctor, so does anyone have a helpful home remedy?

    • ANSWER:
      There have already been excellent answers.

      However, I recommend this taking a look at this information in UpToDate:
      http://www.patients.uptodate.com/topic.asp?file=gen_hlth/4517&title=Eczema+%28Atopic+dermatitis%29

      This is the resource and information many physicians use. I would provide a link to the physician's articles on eczema, but they wouldn't work for you (you need a password). However, this is the "Patient Information" section of UpToDate, which is excellent and not a whole lot different from the physician's articles.

      It is also and excellent site to bookmark for future use with other problems.

      BUT...a second reason I answered your question is because *sometimes* people who think they have eczema on the feet - with itchy, scaling skin...actually have tinea pedis (AKA athlete's foot), which is caused by a fungal infection.

      Although tinea pedis tends to show up between toes, this is not always the case - which can make the diagnosis more difficult for a physician.

      Check out these photos of tinea pedis:
      http://images.search.yahoo.com/search/images?p=tinea+pedis&fr=yfp-t-501&toggle=1&cop=mss&ei=UTF-8

      Search for photos with eczema on the feet, and you will see what I mean...they look very similar!

      In fact, to ensure a correct diagnosis, a physician will scrape some of the skin onto a slide, apply a little KOH, and look for fungal hyphae under a microscope.

      -
      So, if this is case with you, the treatments for eczema would help some, but not cure the problem...and it would come back.

      Therefore, if the eczema treatments don't work, consider some over-the-counter antifungal creams or lotions, like:
      Clotrimazole (Lotrimin), Miconazole (Monistat-Derm), or Tolnaftate (Tinactin).

      You'd have to apply any of these twice a day (as opposed to the stronger, but no more effective, prescription antifungals which only require once a day application).

      And sometimes (if extensive), may require up to 4 weeks of treatment. Once and if it clears, keep applying the medicine for another week...and that should do the trick.

      -

      I hope this helps!

  4. QUESTION:
    Does anybody know any home remedies for eczema?
    I've had eczema all my life and never really know how to treat it. It's starting to get really bad. Any body have any ideas on how to treat it?

    • ANSWER:
      I have been troubled with Eczema for most of my life also. Many trips to doctors and trying different remedies gave me some temporary relief, but I just kept coming back.

      There are many things you can do to help with the control of this terrible disease. I found a nice article that mentions a few home remedies I think will help you.

      http://www.squidoo.com/Eczema-Home-Remedies

      One of the best methods I've used that seems to keep it under control is to use a zinc supplement. Take 50 milligrams a day. Also, your diet plays a very important roll in helping to control eczema.

      Hope this has helped you a little. Good luck!

    I recently moved, and I discovered that no one in my area takes my medical insurance...thus no prescription steroid creams for me. The OTC steroid creams don't work at all.

Do you know of any natural home remedies that help or cure eczema? I've been told you can only control it but I can't loose hope on finding something.

    • ANSWER:
      Hi Irania,

      Before you get to know the real remedies for Eczema,there are some unproved remedies surrounding Eczema that you should know about. These remedies include:

      * Oatmeal Consumption. It's a common remedy to heal itching, and can be applied as a cream in the bath. But some recent researches tells that oat can give a burning sensation on skin.
      * Sulfur. For a long time, sulfur has been used for some skin problems. However, there is no scientific evidence that sulfur treatment can cure Eczema.
      * Probiotics. They are living microorganisms like Lactobacillus bacteria in yoghurt. They are not effective for treating Eczema, and have a small risk of an infection.
      * Sea water. Many expert dermatologists around the world believe that there are some doubtful evidences that salt water baths can help children with Eczema.

      Recently scientists discovered that a diet rich in Omega-3 may able to reduce the symptoms of this skin disease. Because the disease is related to inflammation, the Omega-3 fatty acids can help controlling the production of chemical mediators of inflammation. This means that the skin rashes can be reduced by consuming fish oil supplements regularly. So, finding the best fish oil supplement is really important to treat Eczema.

    What are home remedies for curing eczema?
    Hello
    i have eczema and it is driving me insane with the itching and redness or the eczema and I was wondering what are home remedies for curing eczema

    • ANSWER:
      I was diagnosed last year with numular eczema and given a bunch of expensive medications from the skin doctor.
      Well nothing worked until this year when another doctor told me that it was psoriasis.
      I suffered for over a year with this embarrassing condition and now it is almost gone after 2 weeks of therapy.
      I have researched a lot on line and started my own remedy's. I found vaseline helped a lot with the itch.
      Now I drink lots of water, take tons of vitamins, like a,b,c,d,e and omega 3. You have to cure your dry skin from within. Creams are like putting a band aide on a sore,
      I take warm baths using a whole box of sea salts. No frills sells Mediterraneanin salt for 1 buck a box.
      Then I don't use perfume soaps, I use olive oil soap from the health store.
      Then I go to light therapy at the doctors 3 times a week, moderate sunlight helps the skin.
      Then I use lots of mosturizers there is one called base glaxal that really works.
      Try using noxzema I heard that cures exzema.

    • ANSWER:
      Hi, my name is kymrie, i'm 14 and i first started having symptoms of eczema in the summer of 6th grade- about 3 or 4 years ago.

      i just got diagnosed with eczema on tuesday and i had it on my face- around my eyes, on my left cheek, and around my mouth. all around my neck, and on both of my arms in the crease of my elbows-it was symettrical.

      those are both prescription only.
      also she gave me a list of what i should and shouldnt do.
      i cant use any body wash with fragrance in it (use Cetafil), my parents have to wash my clothes with this special detergent, i can't wear dark colors, and what i wear has to be 100% cotton, i can't take hot or cold showers, it has to be luke warm once daily for no more than 10 minutes. i can't use perfume or any other frangrance related stuff such as anything from bath and body works.

      and she said there's many different types of eczema, so she gave me manyy samples to use.
      Eucerin didn't work on me, but it worked on my aunt.
      Cloderm didn't help at all.
      but as i said, there's alot of different types. so you have to kinda try out everything.

      also, CeraVe moisturizing lotion helped alot.

      and in the three days that i've been using these medications,
      my skin has gone back to normal,
      and they only thing that looks different from my natural skin is the eczema that was on my arms because i went 3 years without having it checked out and it lost it's pigment.

      medications i recommended earlier:
      Triamcinolone Acetonide Cream USP, 0.1%
      Desonide Ointment 0.05%
      Cetaphil sensitive skin cleanser
      CeraVe moisturizing lotion (a must have)

      i hope that helped out a little bit.
      ask your dermatologist about those.

    I have been suffering from eczema for six years now and I was just needing some advice on how to calm it down.

    • ANSWER:

    Know any good home remedies for eczema?
    I have had some small patches on my ankles before, but this time I have it much worse. It is on both arms and legs. I know you can get steroidal creams from the doctor or use hydrocortisone creams that are bought over the counter. I was hoping someone would have some other suggestions. Have you or someone you know tried anything that really helped?

    • ANSWER:
      Keep a food diary and see if there are any foods that aggravate it. Dairy and citrus often aggravate the condition. I would recommend seeing an allergist if you haven't already done so.

    • ANSWER:
      Recently I read a study about the treatment of eczema by the use of bleach. It was dumbfounding that bleach which is commonly used in laundry can treat eczema, a chronic skin disease. Studies say that as many as one in five school-aged children have eczema, medically known as atopic dermatitis that affects youngsters’ appearance, sleep and their ability to concentrate in school and in public place.

      Robert Brodell, a professor of internal medicine and dermatology at Northeastern Ohio University College of Medicine, says dermatologists have been working on the treatment of eczema for about 20 years, but this is the first scientific study on the topic. This article gives the recommendations from the study:

  19. QUESTION:
    Home remedies for eczema?
    I have eczema on my neck. It's not painful most of the time. It's mostly just a bit red and a slight annoyance. Anyway, I've been to the dermatologist three times with it, and he's given me the usual creams and things like that. It really doesn't seem to do a lot to reduce the redness. I was wondering if anyone had any luck with home remedies. Any advice would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!

    • ANSWER:
      The main cause of eczema is overreaction of the immune system. Identifying certain foods, chemicals, etc can be very helpful in battling this disease. I try to avoid soy and milk products which trigger my flare-ups.
      After using number of prescription drugs I've turned to the natural treatments.
      Now I use herbal remedies from serenaskin.com, which aim at the root of the disease - the immune system, and are steroid-free.
      After about 2 weeks of using ointment and spray my skin has been cleared up and now I just continue with anti-eczema extract, which controls the immune system. My skin has been clear for months now.
      It is the only treatment I have found that provides me complete relief when I use it as directed.

  20. QUESTION:
    Any eczema home remedies for the face?
    Hey. School just started again so im extremely stressed...and since i have eczema, i dont break out when im stressed, but instead my face gets red eczema patches. On top of that the winter weather isnt helping haha. I would say my face is dry but the patches feel moist as sick as that sounds.

    • ANSWER:
      Benyedryl, witch hazel, drink massive amounts of water, lots of sleep, aveeno products are good. There's a soap at AmWay. It comes in a three pack, I think. That works good on any skin problem. I can't remember the name of it though. There little orange squares of soap, and there not cheap, but they work.

  30. QUESTION:
    What are some good home remedies for severe eczema?

    • ANSWER:
      You can see a dermatologist who can provide you different creams. Going to the doctor is a quick fix, but the medicines they offer you will not cure eczema and sometimes can be dangerous because of the steroids they have in them. Some home remedy to can try is to bath in warm water, aveno bath and body care products work pretty well, find a mild unscented soap that does not dry out your skin.

      My son was diagnosed with eczema when he was 8 months old and I've tried everything you can think of. Medicines, some were steroids, over the counter creams/lotions and everything in between. I personal found that aveno bath and body care products worked for a while then I to switch to something new. I finally found a product that was botanical based and natural and it really worked.

      Now my son is 9 years old and you cannot tell that he has any skin issues at all. I also had to get an allergy test done and to find out he has food allergies. So, I would suggest you get the same test to confirm you are not allergic to foods or products which can upset your skin.

      Overall I would say find a product that keeps your skin well hydrated. Most important a product that rejuvenates your skins cells and helps your skin cells stay moisture. If you want more information on the product that I used to help with his skin email me. I would be more than happy to share it with you.

Frequently Asked Questions

  1. QUESTION:
    what is the best treatment for eczema?
    My friend's son has had severe eczema on his hands for three years. She's done everything she can think of. Does anyone know a good treatment for it?

    • ANSWER:
      You want to moisturize it. You never want to dry it out or use things that block normal sweating like vaseline.

      I'd recommend coal tar cream. You can go to the pharmacy and ask for cream to be made up, LPC 2% in aqueous cream. LPC is coal tar. A dermatologist made me a prescription for it and it definitely helped. You can also have 4%. Then I found out I can just order it at the chemist and they make it up without a prescription. You put it on very thinly. Also use natural moisturizers with NO fragrance, not even natural scents from essential oils. Dryness is the enemy of eczema. Unless of course it becomes infected from itching, if it's infected then you will need to dry it out and get rid of the infection, then start moisturizing once the infections gone

    What's the best treatment for Eczema?
    My 13 yr old sister in law has really bad eczema all over her body. She uses E45 cream and showers daily but it isn't helping. Her doctor keeps telling her to keep this regime up.

    Are there any other more effective creams available? I am thinking it might be her shower gel - she says some shower gels make her itch but as her mum buys them she just uses them as they are in the shower. Is there a brand of shower gel that might be more beneficial?

    • ANSWER:
      Hi Vicki,

      There is a range of skin care products designed specifically for eczema called 'allergenics' for babies and adults.

      Here are some comments of users of this range of products.

      "My son was getting really bad eczema at the back of his knees and on his arms and it took ages for it to settle before using this ointment. It works really well and you don't need to put loads on. Recommended"

      "My skin has become very dry and sensitive since becoming pregnant and allergenics skin lotion is the only moisturiser I have found that sooths my skin and stops it itching - excellent stuff!"

      "Already the dry sore skin below my eyes and on my neck is fading and feels more comfortable. I have very senstive skin and I am very wary of the normal cosmetic products.... which caused this problem in the first place!"

      "My husband was given cream for a skin complaint, it only made the condition worse. As we were on holiday in Torquay & the skin was much worse I found your cream in a chemist. It started to heal the skin allmost immediately. I am more than pleased to reccommend this to anyone A Aldridge"

      I have included a link to an eczema website below that should give you loads of information. I have also included the link of where to buy the allergenics products with free delivery.

When the patches look really irritated, I put prescription hydrocortisone on it. They look like they clear up for a few days then it flairs up again. Is there any thing more I can be doing?

    • ANSWER:
      mometasone furoate ointment 0.1% works well on the irriatated spots. yet, the pediatricians told me to not use it often because it thins out the skin and leaves white patches. i use it on my daughter's eczema too. she gets red patches on her cheeks and some spots on her forearm and calf. it gets real bad to the point when there is liquid oozing out. i use the ointment once shes asleep, apply a very thin layer and the next morning it usually clears up i then i would use aquaphor. im looking into using sarna lotion. can be purchase at walgreens or cvs pharmacy. i treid cetaphil not any help. my friends that have ezcema that are adults use cetaphil bar soap and the lotion. some say gold bond works as well

  18. QUESTION:
    What's the best eczema treatment, IYO?
    I think my daughter might have some very mild eczema on her arms and legs. Our apartment is wall to wall carpet (except the kitchen and bathrooms) and I think that's what's causing it, because she creeps around all day long.
    I give her oatmeal baths every other night, and slather her with moisturizer right after her bath, and whenever else I can get her to stay still.
    We're really broke right now, so it'd be hard to take her to the doctor, but it's really, really mild, so... in the meantime, what else can I do to work on it? When I say mild, I mean, it's not even red, it's just a little bumpy.
    Of course, it is took a turn for the worse, I'd get her to her doctor right away.
    I also have some skin problems, the skin on my hands always gets really dry all the time because I wash my hands so many times a day, I could use some relief, too.
    Just wondering, what worked best for you?
    Thanks to everyone who answered!

    • ANSWER:
      My son had eczema too, and our pediatrician recommended Eucerin Cream. Every night after bath put this on. Within a few days my son's condition was cured. :-) And he never got it again.
      I use this ever so often for my hands as they are severely dry all the time from constantly washing them. I use it at night so I'm not going through the day washing my hands and washing it off. It will help you as well. :-)
      Always use a cream base moisturizer for severely dry hands, or eczema. Using regular lotion has alcohol in it and will dry your skin out.
      Hope this helps. :-)

  19. QUESTION:
    What's the best treatment for eczema?

    • ANSWER:
      Drink lots of water. Keep your skin clean. Try using Eucerin to moisturize your skin. I have heard that Orange Juice increase imflammation. Consult with your doctor. You may be allergic to something that triggers an outbreak. Also, use mild soaps and lotions like Cetaphil or Eucerin.

  22. QUESTION:
    Best treatment for eczema in infant?
    My 5 month old was diagnosed with eczema at 4 months, he had it long before and I suspected that it was eczema because his rashes look just like mine and that's what I have. I started using aveeno unscented baby products on him and they don't really work, but they dont further irritate his skin the way other products do. His doctor suggested that we use a hydrocortizone cream and eucerin baby aquaphor, i've been using them for a month but his rashes only seem to get worse and spread.
    MariVi, what kind of Eucerin is it that you use. I've been using Eucerin Aquaphor but I know that there are many different types.

    • ANSWER:
      my son had a severe outbreak of eczema when he first started showing signs of having it...it was a complete bummer!! his doctor told us the same thing...the hydrocortizone and aquaphor. We also gave him fewer baths and switched out laundry detergent to a free and clear hypoallergenic. right when he is out of the bath I slather on eucerin calming cream lotion and then the aquaphor on the trouble spots. the doc also considered that it might be due to a milk allergy so we switched his fomula to a soy based formula...i supplement breast feeding with formula but you didn't mention which method you use...you might look into that aspect as well...obviously nursing is the best method but they can pick up the allergy from dairy products you might eat too..everything has cleared up really well for our son except for one spot on his chest that we finally took him to a dermatologist at childrens hospital to treat...they prescribed a steroid anitbiotic that has made the spot finally disappear after the several months he's been bothered by it.... eczema sucks!!! but hopefully you can get it cleared up! good luck!!

  23. QUESTION:
    What is the best treatment for eczema during pregnancy?
    I'm 20 weeks pregnant and have suffered from discoid/nummular eczema for the past few years. Since I have been pregnant it has become progressively worse. I was using a pretty strong corticosteroid cream before pregnancy, but since it is a category C, I am no longer using it. I would also go to the tanning bed regularly, which helped tremendously, but of course I can't do that anymore either. I'm currently using Aquaphor, which helps a little, but I was wondering if anyone has had luck using other products that are not harmful to the baby. I've seen a cream in the drugstore called Baby Eczema cream by Gente Naturals, and I'm wondering if it's safe to use b/c it's made for infants. It's almost unbearable! I'm willing to try anything!! Any help is greatly appreciated!

    • ANSWER:
      Most topical steroids are actually considered safe to use during pregnancy. They are not absorbed systemically. (Which is why we use them, rather than taking prednisone pills.) The 'catagory C' rating is simply a blanket one for ALL types of steroids, from oral to inhaled to topical. (And is, in fact, the most common rating for all medications -- they can't give it a safer rating because they can't do randomized studies on pregnant women. But if you look around, you'll find many research articles and medical pages saying that there is no evidence of harm.

      Check with your doctor; he may want to prescribe a slightly different type, but there should be no reason you can't continue to use the medicated creams.

      (I have eczema too, and have never found anything OTC that works.)

  24. QUESTION:
    best treatment for eczema/Psoriasis that doesnt involve...?
    being slathered in a sticky vaseline like substance all day everyday?

    • ANSWER:
      Try switching your soaps and shampoos to the Malki Dead Sea range that you can find at Boots. Their sulphur soap is miraculous when it comes to flare-ups, but just using their (nicer-smelling) mineral soap every day generally keeps the scales at bay. It works really for me and I haven't had a flare-up in ages. I think I'm one of their biggest fans, but check out the user reviews on the Boots site too - there are plenty of eczema and psoriasis sufferers who feel the same! I also avoid using cosmetics and perfumes as much as possible, which also helps.

  25. QUESTION:

  26. QUESTION:
    whats the best treatment for eczema? 10 points!?

    • ANSWER:
      I had eczema for a while now..Mine used to be really bad..I had it in my neck,legs and especially in my hands.But I managed to keep mine under control. I found that using Palmer's Cocoa Butter lotion is perfect for eczema. Also when you shower don't shower with hot water..try putting it warm and use dove soap. I noticed that whenever I used another soap my skin got really dry and itchy whenever i came out of the shower. Once you do that as soon as you dry yourself put lotion all over your body and use enough. Drink plenty of water to keep hydrated. This also helps a lot. If your gonna wash any dishes or clean the house put gloves on cause if not it could irritate your hands. Hope this helps..it does for me. :)

      Oh yeah another thing..Whenever you do get itchy..a lot of people put there hands in hot water to stop the itch..don't do that and don't scratch..use a towel and try scratching it like that. It doesn't inflame that way..believe it helps..Then put lotion afterwards. Or you can also try cortizone10 cream..you can buy that at any pharmacy, rite-aid, walmart, target...etc. its not expensive.

  27. QUESTION:
    whats the best natural treatment for baby eczema?
    my baby is suffering from eczema and the doctor is giving her creams which isn't working at all.Now I am really trying to figure out the best natural treatment, not like thos invasive creams that the doctor has been perscribing which doesnt work at all.

    • ANSWER:
      be patient and stick with medical advice and tell your doctor the treatment isint working,it may be time to switch to steroids or modify dosage,

      if you want to try herbal remedies,well thats your choice but make sure you ask your doctor and make sure they can be used alongside conventional treatment.

      be careful and dont believe everything someone in one of theese health food places tells you, i heard of one person that was told to stop taking her heart medication because it "drives the disease in further" by someone who failed out of a nursing course and became a homeopath

      as for homeopathic "medicine" though i consider it a scam, whatever herbal remedies that ever worked became actual medicine those that dont work stayed in the realm of alternative medicine.

  28. QUESTION:

      I hope you find a solution soon.

  29. QUESTION:
    What is the best treatment for my two month old and her eczema?
    My daughter is two months and has excema.

    • ANSWER:
      Salcura Dermaspray Gentle worked for our child. It was 10 times more effective than everything else we tried. The next best thing we tried was Calendula cream which can be bought at a health food store. We went through 2 tubes a week of Calendula and it only gave slight relief. Also soaps made with dead sea minerals were helpful too but only for a little while.

      Salcura contains only natural ingredients and contains Calendula and Dead Sea minerals as well, but is much more effective than anything else we could find. Salcura stopped our child itching in seconds and his severely inflamed skin subsided 50% in just the first 24 hours of use. We sprayed his skin about 3 times a day whenever we saw him itch. His skin healed and was completely normal looking in 2 months.

  30. QUESTION:
    What is the best cream for eczema?
    I have eczema on my arms/legs. It's red and I have a lot of bumps. But it doesn't itch. What is the best treatment for this?

    • ANSWER:
      It's horses for courses as they say. What works well for one doesn't necessarily work for another (with the exception of maybe steroidal medications; and those do more harm than good). You may want to try anti-eczema cream and spray from Champori.com : it is the best medicine for eczema in my book (it's herbal and it's been keeping me clear for more than a year now). It doesn't need a prescription and if it doesn't work for you - it's free: they have money back guarantee.

Natural Cures For Eczema- Remedies To Get Your Beautiful And Healthy Skin Back!

Eczema is term for a skin inflamation otherwise known as dermatitis. The most common being Atopic Eczema - becuase this is mainly passed on by eczema family sufferers. It is not a contagious infection - but it is hereditary. The person suffering with Atopic Eczema - will experience skin dryness, persistent itching, redness and inflammation. Conventional medicine will help control eczema but if you're looking for natural cures for eczema without side effects and that can provide fast as well as permanent relief, then read on.

By knowing the root causes of eczema, you can help restore back your skin's beauty naturally without relying on prescription medication.

Eczema Causes:

- Food Allergies
- Contact with Chemicals That React With Your Skin ( found in common household products, cosmetics, soaps, bubble baths, metals, pollutants)
- Heredity
- Stress
- A weak immune system
- Deficiency of essential fatty acids
- Candidiasis

Natural Cures for Eczema: Lactobacillus Acidophilus

Big words but what it is - is natural yogurt which contains "live cultures". Natural yogurt contains live bacteria and when eaten daily helps promote the growth of good bacteria which in turn helps strengthen the immune system and build resistance to common illnesses. Candida overgrowth can be a trigger of eczema, this overgrowth can easily be balanced when probiotic yogurt is consumed on a daily basis. Those on antibiotics beware that antibiotics kill off good bacteria promoting the overgrowth of yeast. Both adults and babies should eat probiotic yogurt daily ( make sure that it clearly states that the yogurt contains "live cultures" and is unsweetened) to help cure eczema naturally.

Natural Cures for Eczema: Herbal Baths

Certain herbs can help soothe skin inflammation, itching and redness caused by eczema while also relieving tension. Excellent herbs that promote skin healing are: chamomile, lavender or oatmeal. These can be used separately or together by adding them to warm bath and soaking up your skin for up to 20 minutes or longer but avoid excessive bathing and very hot water.

Other Recommendations:

A great way to help you relax and manage stress is to drink herbal tea in particular camomile or peppermint tea but avoid caffeine and sugar as these work the opposite way - they can trigger stress.

  2. QUESTION:
    Has anyone tried any Natural Eczema Cures?
    I've been suffering for a long time from eczema and have tried everything from the dermatologist to a chinese magician. I came across this site reviewing natural eczema cures http://www.fastnotequote.com/EczemaCureReviews.html and wondered if anyone else has tried any of these. I would love to hear your opinions!

    • ANSWER:
      Hi there,

      I've had the same issue with eczema...20+ years.

      I tried the top pick from that site and have had a reasonable amount of success. At least I can say I got my money's worth...

  3. QUESTION:
    Are there any natural cures for eczema on eyelids?
    I've tried numerous things to get rid of the eczema around my eyes. Nothing I've tried has worked. It keeps coming back. I haven't been able to wear make-up for several months. It's so painful, itchy, and just down right miserable. Does anyone have a good solution to get rid of this awful stuff for good?

    • ANSWER:
      Hi, eczema on eyelids can be one of the worst types of eczema to deal with.

      Because the skin on the eyelids is so thin and delicate, you need to be careful what you put on it. A lot of medicated eczema treatments contain steroids and other chemicals, and the last thing you will want is to have them seeping into your eyes.

      Try using a cream which has natural ingredients. A really good one is Aloe Vera, as it has a lot of skin healing properties. The key is to keep the eyes well moisturized and not to let the skin get dry. Dry skin makes eczema a lot worse.

      Try your best not to rub them or scratch them either, as this makes the situation worse as well.

      Stress is something that people don't think about, but it is a known cause for making eczema worse, so try to learn to relax a bit more.

      Hope things get better for you and the eczema on eyelids gets better.

      There is dome info about eyelid eczema below if you want to know more

  4. QUESTION:
    Any natural cures for eczema?
    I've had this since I was a child. It's not horrible but it's a real pain. Know of anything that has worked well for you, your children or anyone you know? Apparently, this is a pretty common skin condition.

    • ANSWER:
      You might try upping your intake of foods high in essential fatty acids. I take evening primrose capsules when I start feeling an outbreak coming. You can get it at any health food store and some large supermarkets. It's one of the richest sources of gamma-linolenic acid, which is a precursor to one the fatty acids your body needs. (And when I DO have an outbreak, I'll actually cut open a capsule and just put the EPO right onto my skin.)

      You can try a low-chemical diet but, in all honesty, I didn't find it all that helpful.

  5. QUESTION:
    What is the best natural cure for eczema?
    I have had eczema for many years, and I have some now which will not clear-up. The doctor has not been able to provide much more than steroid cream. Is there any natural things which work?

    • ANSWER:
      The cure to eczema is specific attrition of the infected cells. Have a look at my blog at http://eczemafix.blogspot.com/index.html#7020987335704964975 for reason why and mechanism. The best cure I have found thus far is 4 days at a clean beach. Mangosteen skins are good for immediate treatment but does not provide the level that going to a warm and clean beach does.

      The cure is also a strategy. It is about depopulating the infection and infectious agents over a period of time without scarring the skin (or with minimal scarring) http://eczemafix.blogspot.com/index.html#3443886186286232409 (this shows what happens when the majority of the infection is gone but there are still some infected patches. People say it looks like psoriasis (http://www.healthy-skin-guide.com/psoriasis-photos.html)).

      As skin is naturally replaced over the course of ones life, as long as one remains vigilant, one will eventually be free of the infection. I make this period about 7 years.

  6. QUESTION:
    are there any natural cures for eczema?
    i have had it since i was a little girl and its really bad the itching drives me crazy and my skin is just so bad .....

    • ANSWER:
      I don't think there is a "cure" for Eczema, but this makes it more manageable. Try Eucerin cream mixed with a little baby oil.

      The other cream that works very well is "Aquaphor" healing ointment. You can buy it at any good drug store. It comes in a jar and is made by the same company that manufactures Eucerin creams. It works far better than any prescription ointments that I have wasted money on.

      It smooths the skins out, removes any discoloration and stops itching. Definitely worth trying.

  7. QUESTION:
    Natural cures for eczema?
    eczema

    • ANSWER:
      Hello there. You can just google "natural cure for eczema" and take your pick. Some of them do actually work. For my atopic eczema the herbal cream by Champori works the best: it takes abot 2 weeks to clear the patches and then they stay clear for months on end. Try it: champori comes with money back guarantee so if it doesn't work for you - it's free.
      Cheers,

  8. QUESTION:
    Is there a natural cure for severe eczema?
    I have tried every cream on the market, perscription and non. And still every two weeks my daughter is hospitalized.

    • ANSWER:
      My baby's doc said to use any hand lotion that has something like petroleum as the first ingredient, NOT water. We use Aquaphor here, and I can definitely tell when Patrick's skin has been slathered in Aquaphor..its less red and bumpy. He's only 9 months old, but he smiles when he sees the tub of it before I put it on him. I think it makes him feel better.

  9. QUESTION:
    What is a good natural way to treat eczema?
    My 17 month old son has a bad case of eczema, we are currently using hydrocortozone cream along with other cream to help. They are helping a little, but when I look and see his poor body all red and dry it hurt me and I would like to do more to help. We saw the doctor and they said use the hydro- cream and cut out alot of bath. If you have any other suggestions or natural health cures for eczema please let me know. Thank you

    • ANSWER:
      Aww poor baby. Eczema sucks!

      Try Aveeno's line, I believe they have baby products as well. It's more natural than other products, and it's very soothing and moisturizing. They make bath products, lotions, everything.

      Did you ask the Dr. about foods he is eating? Certain foods flare up my Eczema. Oh, and if you live in a colder climate and the heat is on right now, get him a humidifier. The dry hot air makes me dry and itchy.

      Good luck.. poor sweetie!

  10. QUESTION:
    Whats a good natural cure for eczema?
    I have suffered from eczema all my life but now it is really starting to get in the way of me enjoying myself, I can't use fake tan, I can't walk in the rain, I can't even wear belts! help me someone

    • ANSWER:
      There are a number of things that you can do to decrease the frequency and/or severity of eczema.
      Stay away from food, chemicals, cosmetics and other things that make your eczema worse.Use a mild soap or no soap on the eczema. Avoid Vaseline and ointments because they can block sweat glands and worsen rash. Avoid skin irritants such as animal dander’s (dogs and cats), feathers, harsh fabrics (denim and corduroy), tight clothing, and even sometimes wool and silk. Cotton clothing is recommended as much as possible. Avoid temperature and humidity extremes, don't over-dress or over heat. Don't scratch! Scratching eczema only makes it worse. It can get infected. Keep your fingernails short.
      Try some skin care products containing herbs that will definitely help you to get rid of the situation.
      This will be useful for you.

  11. QUESTION:
    Natural cure for eczema?
    I'm 15 years old. Around the age of 11, i developed what seemed to be a really bad case of dandruff. i tried everything but nothing worked. I also found that it would go off on its own once in a while (probably when stress leves decreased), so i finally gave up and decided i had to live with it.

    Early this year, however, things got much worse. My scalp began to weep and we decided it was time we went to see a dermatologist. We saw two (one who happens to be the best in town), both of whom said it was either psoriasis or eczema (I'll tell you later why i think its eczema). The second guy we saw, who is supposed to be the best prescribed several steroids and asked me to return in 2 weeks. I decided to give it a go but i soon found that all the steroids did was just suppress the inflammation. Even then, around day 10, the eczema became rather visible again. When we saw him again, he just prescribed another steroid and thats when we decided enough is enough. Psoriasis is supposed to be caused by a suppressed immune system and all these steroids were doing was further supressing my immune system. We then TOTALLY stopped the steroids and I'm now trying a more natural and organic way to cure it.

    Of course after stopping the steroids just like that, all the infammation returned and it got quite bad. It then spread to my neck as well and I even have a little on my elbows and in my armpits now. These places indicate that its eczema. My mum did a lot of research and i've started taking antioxidants now and my body is responding rather well to them. I also have been putting organic virgin coconut oil on my head and neck every night and i wash it off the next day. But so far, there aren't any signs of me recovering totally.

    I have stopped taking prawns and anchovies which i used to eat around 4 to 5 times a week. we are gonna start buying chicken that aren't commercially grown but are grown in nearby villages as they won't have tonnes of hormones injected into them. I do not live in a cool area. In fact its hot and humid here throughout the year.

    So thats basically my story. Please, please, please help me. If you know any natural ways to cure eczema please do share them with me. As a teenager I find it hard to go to school as people start to notice them on my neck and all. My self esteem has taken a tumble and i feel really down.
    please help.

    • ANSWER:
      The main cause of eczema is overreaction of the immune system. Identifying certain foods, chemicals, etc can be very helpful in battling this disease. I try to avoid soy and milk products which trigger my flare-ups.
      After using number of prescription drugs I've turned to the natural treatments.
      Now I use herbal remedies from serenaskin.com, which aim at the root of the disease - the immune system, and are steroid-free.
      After about 2 weeks of using ointment and spray my skin has been cleared up and now I just continue with anti-eczema extract, which controls the immune system. My skin has been clear for months now.
      It is the only treatment I have found that provides me complete relief when I use it as directed.

  13. QUESTION:
    Cures for eczema, natural or prescribed?
    My 10 month old baby has terrible eczema. At the moment his hands are infected and his prescribed treatments are not working. So far hes had Hydrocortisones, fucidic cream, antibiotics and zinc bandages. His sores are so bad that the bandages are sticking to them and when removing them the skin is being torn off which then bleeds for a few minutes. Hes in a lot of pain when I remove the bandages so Ive stopped them for now. Ive already seen the doctor on several occasions and everything he prescribes fails. I need help....i don't know what else to do and would love advice on people in similar situations. On top of that my 5 year old has gastroenteritis (sp) and glue ear which is infected so you can probably tell I need some relief for one of them!

    • ANSWER:
      Arbonne has a great pure, safe, and beneficial baby care line (hair and body wash, lotion, body oil, diaper rash cream, and sunscreen) that is water based, botanically-based and pH correct, pediatrician and dermatologist tested, non-sensitizing, non-irritating, and formulated without nut oils. They are formulated with natural ingredients like oat flour which is an emollient and an emulsifier. It’s highly absorbent and hypoallergenic. Oat flour helps to soothe and soften dry, itchy and sensitive skin. If you're interested in learning more, I'll be happy to help you.

  14. QUESTION:
    Does anyone know of a natural cure for eczema?

    • ANSWER:
      There is no real cure. The best thing to do is keep the skin moisturized (try something like aquaphor-very natural, like vaseline). Also try oatmeal in the bath (can use aveeno or regular from the kitchen). Don't have the water very hot, and lotion immediately after while the skin is still moist. Avoid powders and perfumes and harsh detergents in your clothes. Use very little soap in the bath, and if you do, use something hypoallergenic (almay or cetaphil are good)

  15. QUESTION:
    Is there a 100% natural cure or treatment for eczema?
    I am an adult with eczema on my hands.

    • ANSWER:
      depends whats causing it. low levels of hydrochloric acid in the stomach can lead to "leaky gut syndrome" , in which the intestines become porous and allow food particles to ener the blood stream, causing allergic reactions. Candidaisis, or a systemic yeast infection, can cause it too. Keeping your ph over 6 is a good way to fend off many ailments in general. You may have food allergies. Dairy is a big culprit in eczema. Also, rule out chemical sensitivities. Skin lotion often has perfumes that can cause this, and classically make-up can cause eczema also. If its make up try something that is all natural (health food store). Even ivory soap can cause eczema. You could be getting exposed to fiberglass, that definattely causes eczema, rashes. Dont rule out air pollutants.

      There are many posibilities, and it may take a while but like me, you will eventually figure it out. Remember, eczema is your body's way of telling you there's something wrong!

      Hope these suggestions help!

      The cause of eczema is overreaction of the immune system. Identifying certain foods, chemicals, etc can be very helpful in battling this disease. I try to avoid soy and milk products which trigger my flare-ups.
      After using number of prescription drugs I've turned to the natural treatments.
      Now I use serenaskin herbal remedies.
      After about 2 weeks of using ointment and spray my skin has been cleared up, and I continue with eczema extract, which controls the immune system. My skin has been clear for months.
      It is the only treatment I have found that provides me complete relief when I use it as directed.

    What should I do about eczema?
    I've had eczema since I was born on my cheeks. I've also had it on my neck for a few years because I did something foolish and used a cheap brand of eczema cream on my neck when it didn't even have eczema.

  24. QUESTION:
    Beat Eczema By Susan Clark - Does It Work?
    Hello friends
    Maybe someone bought the book Beat Eczema By Susan Clark? I'm looking for a natural cure for eczema and I read some reviews about the Beat Eczema book today and wonder if someone here really tried the techniques in this book.
    If anyone can help me (just people that bought this book) please let me know if you found Susan Clark's Beat Eczema book to be helpful or not.
    Thank you

    • ANSWER:
      Hello Dani
      The Beat Eczema book by Susan Clark was very helpful for me and for some other people that I know but I also found some reviews from people that say this book didn't help them so I can't tell you for sure if the methods inside Beat Eczema will help you in 100%.
      Anyhow, Here are a few things that I really like about Susan Clark's Beat Eczema Ebook:

      Firstly I really liked that this book is available for instant download. This is incredibly convenient, as you can read reviews, go to the website and download a copy. It also makes for an easy return if you're not satisfied with your purchase. Susan Clark offers for all her customers 60 days money back guarantee so actually if the book didn't help you it is very easy to get a refund.

      Another thing I like about Beat Eczema is the fact that Susan Clark attacks the cause of the illness. If you've read much literature on eczema at all, you know that most treatments tend to go after the symptoms, which is why most of them fail.

      Susan Clark's approach to the disease in her Beat Eczema book is very down to earth, with one and only concept in mind, beat the eczema. She hits on the root causes of eczema and then attacks each one with an all natural remedy.

      The last thing that I really liked about Beat Eczema is that it's 100% natural system . Rather than loading your skin with chemicals and various other harmful agents, Susan Clark takes a holistic approach to the disease. That's something that almost no doctor is going to do and I can really appreciate.

      Well, I hope that this help.
      P.S, you can get 30% discount for Susan Clark's Beat Eczema book in the link below if you want, all the best!

    How to cure severe eczema?
    My daughter has a bad case of severe eczema. I need to know if there is a natural cure for this. I've already brought her to the doctor who recommended hydrocortisone. I know this isn't the best solution as it has horrible side effects.

  26. QUESTION:
    Natural ways to cure eczema?
    I've had eczema since I was 15 or 16.. I am now 21 and still have this problem! I've been to the dermatologist plenty of times and they give me these steroid creams. It works fast but once I run out or don't have any more refills, it comes back, slowly. It's frustrating because I want it to go away for good!! I'm looking for natural ways to get rid of it so I don't have to keep going back to the dermatologist. My eczema isn't red like in some pictures I've seen, mine is like patches of discoloration on my skin and it's a little rough (little tiny bumps). I usually get it on my upper arms and a little on my back. It doesn't always itch. If ANYONE has any tips or advice please it let know.

  27. QUESTION:
    i want some natural home remedies for curing eczema around clitoris?

    • ANSWER:
      I agree entirely with first response. Home remedies are generally useless. You may have a yeast infection; these are treatable.

  28. QUESTION:
    Why natural juices of carrot, apple make my eczema worse?
    I heard from someone that natural juices and herbs cure eczema, but not for me ..it aggravates my... eczema skin gets irritated me , become itchy very unconfortable....but when i eat 2 apples withtout drink their juice...my skin don't react...Why? What can those juices contain? thanks..

    • ANSWER:
      Eczema is an allergic reaction. There's no simple cure: we all react differently to different things. The fact that juices and herbs are natural doesn't mean you can't be allergic to them.

      Your short-term irritation is probably because apple and carrot juice are both very acid. The flesh is slightly alkaline so eating the whole fruit or root has less of an effect.

  29. QUESTION:
    What are some jobs that deal with herbs and herbology?
    I know that I want to do something with herbs, like making natural beauty products and making natural cures for stuff like eczema etc.... But I am not sure what jobs in the herbal category fit that kind of description? It would be great if you could list as many different herbal careers that you know of, and then I can see which one is closest to my idea of what I want to do. Thank you so much!

    • ANSWER:
      The previous answer is a great one! I'm actually studying to get my N.D. at the moment, and am thoroughly enjoying it.

      Look into the Clayton College of Natural Health, it's a long distance school that covers a ton of different areas of holistic medicine, including a certification program on Herbology. From that point, you can always go into growing, preserving and selling high-quality herbal supplements, or maybe just educating others on the benefits of a more natural approach to healing. Good luck! :o )

7 Homeopathic Remedies for Eczema That Work

The age range of eczema patients actually vary, from as young as a month old, up to people who are in their 60's. Generally hands, knees, wrists, upper chest, arms, and neck are the commonly affected areas. This skin disorder leads to itching, flakiness of the skin and dryness.

1. Fingertip eczema can be controlled to some extent by ensuring that the skin does not dry out. Those suffering from eczema should take great care to make sure that the skin is sufficiently moisturized. Lotions and creams should be non-irritating and can vary in thickness. Those choosing thinner preparations will need to use them more often, so thicker creams are often the preferred option for eczema patients. Mild soaps should be used to clean the hands, and mild, sensitive-skin formula moisturizers should be used. Additionally, the temperature in the home should remain steady, sensitive skin laundry detergent should be used, harsh chemicals should be avoided and the skin should be patted dry rather than rubbed.

2. Coconut oil is one of the excellent home remedies for eczema, because it truly is healing to your skin. You should apply the coconut oil to the affected areas. It also keeps your skin moisturized, which combats the dryness that eczema sufferers face.

3. Shea butter is another great homemade alternative for eczema because of its equally effective anti-inflammatory properties. This natural ingredient contains rich Vitamin A and E which are perfect emollient and moisturizer options. More than its healing properties, it could further protect your skin from the harmful environmental agents that trigger eczema. It has natural UV sun protection properties making your skin safe and moisturized all day.

4. If you want to know, "How to cure eczema on palmsc", avoid contact with chemicals found in detergents, dish washing soaps, cosmetics, etc. So, make it a point to wear gloves while doing household chores. Even while cooking, try not to touch foods like ginger, onions, fruit juices and certain vegetables.

5. By using cold compresses with plain water can greatly improve the condition of your skin. Plain water is added to clothes and then applied to the affected areas. In addition, drinking enough water helps keep your skin hydrated.

6. Applying neem oil and coconut oil, has a very soothing and healing effect on the eczema affected skin. Eating certain foods such as flax-seed oils and musk melons can help reduce inflammation to a great extent. Applying a paste of sandalwood and camphor on the hands everyday, keeps eczema from aggravating too.

7. Although not exactly a cure, water is indispensable in the management of eczema. When you are suffering from eczema, you need to double your water intake. Water keeps the skin well-hydrated thus slimming the chances of developing dry, itchy skin.

  2. QUESTION:
    Remedy for eczema?
    Can anybody suggest a homeopathic remedy for eczema please?

    • ANSWER:
      my father in law had the worst case of eczema that i had ever seen in my life it looked like someone was peeling it and using sand paper to his arms. Well he went to the doctor for 15 years and they would keep giving him a special cream but it never went away it just kept it from spreading. well he's a truck driver and one day at one of his stops a young lady told him to but Gold Bond on it. A WEEK later it had gone down so much it was unbelievable!! you couldnt see it anymore and you could hardly feel it. I think that it has been about a month now and it is completely gone. we were so shocked how quickly it went away with such a common product.

  3. QUESTION:
    Has anyone tried homeopathic doctors for their babies?
    I dont mean for anything serious obveously, but things like eczema, colds, reflux conditions ect.....
    I remember being given homeopathic remedies as a child for different things and them working, and am planning to give it a try for any minor problems that may occur with my daughter in the future.
    Just looking for other parents experiences with homepoathy....

    • ANSWER:
      Yes!! Homeopathic doctors are wonderful. The one I am seeing will use a natural remedy for minor issues but will also use traditional medicine when he knows that is the best way to go. Most traditional docs don't entertain the homeopathic ideas...if that is something you are passionate about I would encourage you to find a doc that uses both. That way you have more options.

  4. QUESTION:
    Homeopathic Remedies for Contact Dermatitis?
    i have contact dermatitis on my scalp (small, itchy scabbed sores like eczema that ooze and sting when scratched) and am trying to find out which homeopathic remedy could help relieve or hopefully cure it.

    thanks!
    this is a specific acute problem with cause (chemical) and effect (contact dermatitis). heat makes it itch more, cold makes it sting more, and there's nothing more i can add except that it came on quickly and hasn't changed in three days. in recent years i have developed health issues for which i have recently started seeing a homeopath, but she was away when this problem cropped up and will be away for several more days. my hope is to at least prevent this problem from getting worse in the meantime.
    i have used homeopathic remedies (as advised by those who know more about choosing the correct remedy than i do) for myself and my animals ... with a 99% success rate ... for over 30 years. in a crisis, allopathic drugs may be called for, but they're not my first choice and they won't cure the underlying causes. SOOO anyone who answers just to tell me there's no point looking at homeopathic remedies is wasting their time. worse, they're wasting my time :-)

    • ANSWER:
      What's causing the rash? What makes it better or worse? Is there a time of day when it's worse or better? Is this a recurring problem, or is this the first time?
      Suppression of the condition by using cortisone can make it worse, and you can end up with a future chronic problem that you may not realize is/was related to the suppression (like asthma). Any skin symptom is viewed as the body trying to rid itself of an internal problem.

      Calendula cream is about the only safe topical treatment.
      Leading remedies are: arsenicum, graphites, mezereum, nat.mur.,petroleum and sulphur, but there are many others.
      Homeopathy is aimed at the patient who has the symptoms, not the symptoms themselves. There's not only the issue of which remedy, but also which potency and in what dose.
      Sometimes omega 3 deficiency can cause eczema-like rashes.
      Your best bet is to see a professional certified Homeopath.

      Edit: Okay. Make a solution with calendula tincture and water (1oz calendula/8oz water) -- you can make it in a spring water bottle. Wet your head, wring out your hair, pour the solution on, let it sit for about 10 minutes, then pat dry your hair. Leave the solution on.
      As long as you don't re-expose yourself to the agent that caused it, you should be okay.

      Edit: to the individual who linked to the cartoon show:
      The research team who conducted the research published by Nature was led by Professor Jacques Benveniste of the highly regarded French National Institute for Scientific Research in Medicine (INSERM--the equivalent to America's National Institutes of Health). Dr. Benveniste is a leading allergist and immunologist who declined President Mitterand's appointment to head this French research institute. This research was replicated by scientists at the Hebrew University, University of Toronto, and University of Milano.

      Suppose we tell the WHOLE story, and not just the part we like, okay?

  5. QUESTION:
    Cures for baby eczema?
    My 4 month breastfed has started to get patches on her torso &legs within the past week. nothing has changed (soap, diet, etc). Should I give up dairy? Use homeopathic remedies? Idon't want to use a steriod cream for the Dr if possible.

    • ANSWER:
      My son has eczema patches on his face. What I have found that works is using a thick, non scented lotion on the spots, especially after bathing, or whenever you notice the area to be dry. It hasn't completely resolved but has got a lot better, if I continue to apply the lotion. The doctor told me that it will usually resolve on its own by a year, but continue to use the lotion so it doesn't get out of hand.

  6. QUESTION:
    Dyshidrotic Eczema ...?
    I have Dyshidrotic Eczema. I have had it for 9 years now, and I have been to many dermatologists and the all prescribe a cream with a steroid, which does work, slowly but is there are side effects. They also say that I cant use the creams for more than a few weeks at a time and I cant stay on the same cream for more than 6 months as I will build a tolerance to it. All that being said, are there any natural or homeopathic remedies?

    PS I am in health care and I must wash my hands about 30 times a day on average, so using a mild soap or washing as little as possible is out of the question. I also must wear gloves for prolonged periods of time and use alcohol based hand sanitizers. There is just not getting around any of that. Needless to say I am in an almost constant state of "breakout."

    • ANSWER:
      My friend, you need something to work from inside out as much as you need those creams & ointments.

      Corticosteroid creams and ointments have been used for many years to treat atopic dermatitis and other autoimmune diseases affecting the skin. Sometimes the base used in certain brands of corticosteroid creams and ointments irritates the skin of a particular patient. Side effects of repeated or long-term use of topical corticosteroids can include thinning of the skin, infections, growth suppression (in children), and stretch marks on the skin.

      When topical corticosteroids are not effective, the doctor may prescribe a systemic corticosteroid, which is taken by mouth or injected instead of being applied directly to the skin. An example of a commonly prescribed corticosteroid is prednisone. The side effects of systemic corticosteroids can include skin damage, thinned or weakened bones, high blood pressure, high blood sugar, infections, and cataracts.

      In adults, drugs that suppress the immune system, such as cyclosporine, methotrexate, or azathioprine, may be prescribed to treat severe cases of atopic dermatitis that have failed to respond to other forms of therapy. These drugs block the production of some immune cells and curb the action of others. The side effects of drugs like cyclosporine can include high blood pressure, nausea, vomiting, kidney problems, headaches, tingling or numbness, and a possible increased risk of cancer and infections. There is also a risk of relapse after the drug is stopped. Because of their toxic side effects, systemic corticosteroids and immunosuppressive drugs are used only in severe cases and then for as short a period of time as possible.

      Natural and holistic treatments are a safer, gentler alternative to use without the harmful side effects or allergic reactions.

      Best of all, you can use them as often as you like, for as long as you like. Herbal ingredients such as Vitamin E oil, Mentha pipererita oil, Bulbinella frutescens tr. and Aloe ferox tr. work quickly to soothe and promote healthy, trouble free skin. Other highly effective herbs include Glycorrhiza glabra, Melia azadirachta, Sambucus nigra and Stellaria media which help to provide relief from itching and discomfort and reduce eczema patches. In addition, Matricaria chamomilla, Asparathus linearis and Galium aparine also prevents infection and inflammation as well as reduces scarring.

      Skin Care
      Healing the skin and keeping it healthy are important to prevent further damage and enhance quality of life. Developing and sticking with a daily skin care routine is critical to preventing flares.

      A lukewarm bath helps to cleanse and moisturize the skin without drying it excessively. Remember, the key is lukewarm – neither too hot nor too cold. Because soaps can be drying to the skin, a mild bar soap or nonsoap cleanser is generally recommended. Bath oils are not usually helpful. You may add colloidal oatmeal, such as Aveeno, to the bath. This finely ground oatmeal floats suspended in the water and is soothing to itchy skin.

      After bathing, a person should air-dry the skin, or pat it dry gently (avoiding rubbing or brisk drying), and then apply a lubricant to seal in the water that has been absorbed into the skin during bathing. In addition to restoring the skin's moisture, lubrication increases the rate of healing and establishes a barrier against further drying and irritation. Lotions that have a high water or alcohol content evaporate more quickly, and alcohol may cause stinging. Therefore, they generally are not the best choice.

  7. QUESTION:
    Can anyone help? My 13 year old son is suffering horrible with eczema.?
    He started with a flare up in October after starting allergy shots for dust mites, cats and ragweed, etc. The eczema is especially bad around his eyes and ears, neck and upper torso including his back. We have been through numerous testing, he tested negative for any food allergies and positive for 3 chemicals found in various products like shampoo. We had removed all these things from his environment and have only used All Free laundry detergent and no fabric softener at all. No improvement. He's been on several courses of Prednisone but now that doesn't seem to be helping him either. The dermatologist has started him on UVB treatments, he's had 6 so far with no relief. It actually seems to be worse than ever and he's just miserable. We've tried many different creams and ointments, bleach baths and some homeopathic remedies as well. What works today won't work tomorrow. Has anyone experienced this and what helped? We are at our wits end here, it's hard enough being a teenager but to have to deal with this is extremely frustrating.

    • ANSWER:
      Steroid creams stopped working for me after few years of use. I switch to natural treatment. SerenaSkin eczema herbal remedies are the most effective treatment i've tried. I used ointment and spray applications and took extract internally to prevent future flare-ups. It has been more than a year and my skin is still clear.
      Avoiding dairy products might help as well. They are the most "popular" triggers of eczema.

  11. QUESTION:
    does anyone know anything about allergiclear, all natural allergy relief. Or anything about supplements in it?
    AllergiClear contains the following natural ingredients:

    Quercitin is a well known flavonoid, usually found mostly in onions and apples and is considered to be a 'building block' for other flavonoids. Flavonoids are important and powerful anti-oxidants found in fruits, vegetables and herbs and can also reduce inflammation, boost immunity, strengthen blood vessels and improve circulation. Quercitin is known for its ability to block the release of histamine, thereby preventing allergy symptoms like swollen nasal passages, congestion, sneezing, watery eyes and itchiness in eyes and nose. Other benefits include reduced risk of heart disease, stroke and cataracts, anticancer properties and the ability to promote stable blood sugar levels.

    Euphrasia officinalis (Eyebright) has been used since the Middle Ages to reduce eye inflammations. It may be used topically, but is very beneficial taken internally to reduce watery, painful and itchy eyes caused by colds and allergies. Other benefits include the maintenance of good vision and eye health.

    Arsen Alb. C15 - a proven homeopathic remedy for a variety of conditions, including inflamed and stinging eyes, sneezing and hayfever. other benefits include improvement in eczema, headaches and general restlessness.

    Nat. Mur. D6 - a biochemic tissue salt which has an excellent effect in reducing and preventing runny nose, hayfever and other conditions linked to inflamed and watery mucus membranes. Other benefits include promoting feelings of well being and reducing anger and irritability.

    Kali Mur. D6 - a biochemic tissue salt with a wonderful soothing decongestant and anti-inflammatory effect, helping to prevent the secondary infections of allergic rhinitis (sinusitis, bronchitis and other respiratory tract infections). Regular use of Kali Mur is also beneficial in improving liver functioning, as a glandular tonic and to strengthen blood and nerve tissue.

    • ANSWER:
      I have tried several natural relief pills, sublinguals, teas , herbs, etc.... does not work!!!
      some herbs may help your immune system and make you feel good for a bit but the reaction of the allergens in your body are way too strong to stop with natural things.
      Unfortunately I need zyrtec or allegra to feel better when the allergies attack.....but somehow this year my allergies are milder than last year and I have been able to avoid medication and I only get some when I really need it
      Be careful because you do not know how your body will react to the herbal effects!

  13. QUESTION:
    My son has a very rare birthmark?
    My son was diagnosed with a very rare birthmark called linear epidermal nevus and its around his neck under both his arms and down the right side of his back leg on his bottom and on his belly and others small spots on his arm and hand. I am putting a cream on him daily to keep it from getting thicker as the birthmark is very rough almost feels like eczema. The cream is working for that but my question is I can still see that it is still active as little parts are still appearing and the doctors tell me there isn't anything I can do and having lasererd off the birthmark will only grow back. Does anyone know of some homeopathic remedy that might work at making this birthmark disappear?

    • ANSWER:
      A nevus means a mole, epidermal means the top layer of the skin and you know what linear means. Based on that information, I found this on the web: It has a guarantee and sounds like something you might want to try. Good luck!

  14. QUESTION:
    My face is red patchy pimply and gross. What can I do to get rid of this crap? Also I have blepharitis. Help!?
    By the way, my skin is SUPER sensitive to almost every product out there and I ONLY use water to wash my face at this point and I use magick frag-free shampoo. Even warm compresses irritate my eyes! Even cetaphil soap irritates my face! Still, both problems persist. This absolutely stinks! I have self-diagnosed myself as having seb-derm, possibly eczema, and I have been clinically diagnosed with blepharitis. For my face, I've tried many things over the years to no avail - cetaphil, benzoyl peroxide (horrendous), salicyic acid, castor oil, jojoba oil, omega 3, proactive, egg yolk, egg white, neutrogena, vaseline, aquaphor. I've used water to wash the face for about 4 months and I don't wear make-up. It's quite a sight! If you can be of any assistance...if you have any homeopathic remedy ideas that might work.... let me know! No commercial soaps/cleanser crap, because they just irritate my skin. Thanks...

    How do I rid of Dermatitis on my hand?
    I have dermatitis on my hands, it is between my fingers and a little patch on my palm. It is very itchy and red and has what appears to be tiny fluid filled bubbles all over it which sometimes weep after a shower and get itchier. I have a cream called Graphites cream which helps stop itching and gets rid of redness but doesnt seem to get rid of it. I read that dermatitis (i havent always had dermatitis, i was born with eczema and one day had a little dry patch on my finger which turned into dermatitis) is sometimes aggravated by wheat and lactose so should i quit milk and bread for a month see if there is any difference? I'd like to know if anyone has any 'cures' or remedies i can purchase when i go shopping or something homeopathic i can make now so soothe straight away. PLEASE HELP ME!
    Ha! yes in a desperate bid last night to get rid of it i put some steroid cream on it, well lets say it quickly got washed of, it BURNED!!! I also heard nickel is a common trigger its in most coins and people always carry coins

    • ANSWER:
      I would be careful using E45 cream - I know a lot of people swear by it but I have Ezcema and it does nothing but aggravate me and makes me itch more - i agree to get something non steriod based so it does not thin the skin - try acqueous cream - you can get it without a prescription from a local pharmacy

Natural Ways to Cure Face Eczema

Suffering from eczema can oftentimes be bad enough, but it can even be more bothersome when it is directly on your face. People who have face eczema get easily embarrassed or feel depressed, since it dramatically affects their appearance (as the face is the most visible part of the human body). And the dry, itchy red patches can make it painful. No one out there should have to deal with something like this.

Face eczema symptoms are just as common and similar as eczema on any other part of the body. Some people suffer from eczema on the face, while others have it all over their body (in addition to their face). Symptoms can range anywhere from red, itchy and dry skin to more severe cases, where scabbing, cracking of the skin and oozing can occur.

The most common type of eczema is known as atopic eczema, and typically begins at a very young age (from infancy to toddler age). In infancy, eczema usually develops between one and six months. It commonly starts on the face and eventually works its way across the entire body, which can cause a considerable amount of pain for a child. Some people can grow out of their eczema as they age, but only find out that in early adulthood it comes back to haunt them.

Face eczema is known as seborrhoeic eczema. Some of the more common areas that it affects are the eyelids, between the creases of the nose, the inner part of the eyebrows and the scalp. The face is already sensitive enough alone, but having your face covered in eczema (especially in these places) can be incredibly painful.

So, now that we know what facial eczema is like, what about treatmentsc There are a variety of treatments for eczema out there, but many of the traditional treatments don't actually cure eczema entirely - they treat the symptoms instead. This goes for any creams or ointments that are prescribed by a doctor. Not only do they not treat eczema effectively, they are filled with chemicals that can actually be harsh on the skin and make skin react badly, causing even more pain.

With nearly every option exhausted, this leaves only one more option - natural methods of treatment. There are various natural eczema treatments out there that can do wonders for curing eczema. One of those, for example, is chamomile oil, which helps to restore moisture in the skin. Another excellent natural eczema treatment is an epsom salt bath, which works to take away the pain and wisk away the dry, dead skin.

When it comes to eczema, whether you suffer from face eczema or eczema all over your body, natural methods of treatment have been proven to help in the treatment and prevention of eczema. If you've suffered from this condition most of your life, you owe it to yourself to give these treatments a shot!

    I have eczema all over my face from a allergic reation I had to cortisone cream. I am allergic to almost every lotion and cream and am desperate to find natural relief for my swollen, infected, and severely itchy skin. Please Help!!!

    • ANSWER:
      My son had severe eczema on his body and severely on his face as well. He reacted violently or not at all to many treatments. We found that Arbonne Baby Care products were highly effective. His pediatrician said he had one of the 10 worst cases of eczema in 30 years of pediatrics. I have the story written out on www.babysoft.myarbonne.com.

      The products are botanically based pure, safe, and beneficial. Our pediatrician has been so impressed that it is now a part of his treatment for eczema. The products are hypoallergenic in the truest sense and highly effective for sensitive skin in adults as well.

      If you would like further information please feel free to contact me through the website. I would be happy to help in anyway I can.

  5. QUESTION:
    Natural treatments for my toddlers eczema?
    My 2 1/2 year old has had eczema for a long time, our doctor has prescribed different creams but none of them seem to do much for my son. Recently his itching has gotten worse and my 5 month old has gotten a rash from itching on his face as well. I plan on taking them back to the doctor at some point but he doesn't seem to be of much help. Does anyone have any experience with this and have any suggestions for natural treatment?

    • ANSWER:
      Hi,

      Sounds like the skin reactions are very very similar to what I was having two to three years ago right after I had poisoned my liver with too much toxic micro-nutritional supplements for too long - when I never even considered it was toxic. After the poisoning was identified I began having severe Urticaria allergic reactions to foods meds creams and my own sweat and who knows what other toxins, while my weakened immune system would then also promote fungal infections. I eventually learned to make the right organic nutritional choices that allowed my organs and immune system to rebuild and recover.

      Poor quality and/or low cost micro-nutrition that easily weakens one's immune system, will cause/ allow/ promote diabetes types of fungal infections and itch rash diseases and almost any other disease, even if one might be very very young or has never been ‘overweight.’

      IF YI - my own skin-Urticaria issues have cost about ,500 in the last three years to learn what I now know - which is that ALL skin diseases are strongly related to one's micro-nutrition and/or toxic absorption and/or hygiene and/or parasites.

      Since doctors were not very helpful and it ‘almost’ took too long to learn what I now try to teach others, I now take a little time each week to help others understand the need for non-toxic and ‘adequate’ micro-nutritional absorption in the gut AND for good hygiene - which will then prevent or minimize every ‘dis-ease’ I am aware of.

      My easily triggered allergic reactions continually cause small water blisters under the top layer of skin along with skin fevers and pruritus itches and also rashes and then long term scaling. When my malady was at its worst - I used to have allergic itches to my own sweat that I was burning off after showering or during exercise or when parts of my body got hot - during a time in my life when I used to have considerable toxins stored within my body fat, along with a ‘very’ weakened immune and filter systems that could/would not ‘elminate’ these strong toxins into a stool.

      Monistat_7 and Desenex are moist-area anti-fungals and Monistat_Derm and Head_&_Shoulders are also anti-fungals, but you really need to see an MD and do more internet research to better understand how difficult it is for an MD to diagnose serious skin maladies. Use meds that are prescribed in a very-minimal way so that your body’s immune system's and skin/ organs can repair and grow stronger, which will then prevent reoccurrences in the future. After I began using a very thin petrolatum based skin cream I inadvertently used too much until I was in the ER with severely swollen lymph glands, that made me think I might have contracted lymphoma.

      Since when I was an asthmatic teen and learned I would have severe reactions when I 'accidentally' inhaled or used 'any' deodorants, and could not eat cinnamon stuff without having an anaphylactic reaction - because cinnamon has some toxins that are strong enough to substitute for pesticides, my life long triggers have taught me to use hypo-allergenic non-perfumed soaps in a minimal way and to sometimes powder different portions of my body with cornstarch to help minimize yeast infections; especially whenever my micro-nutritional absorption within my gut has been less than was ‘necessary’ to ‘adequately’ repair my body’s immune system, organs, and skin on a daily basis.

      I eventually learned that itching or rashes are symptoms of maladies that could become much worse if not healed with better non-toxic and more ‘dense’ micro-nutritional choices. FYI - The most nutritionally dense foods that have been documented by the USDA are predominately found within the very expensive calories from leafy green vegetables.

      Even though I might not have answered your question as ‘specifically’ as you may have wanted, to help you with simple and concise information on ALL itch rash illnesses and for short and long term solutions to them ALL - the following link has considerable info within a ‘report’ I recently posted on Y_A:

      <> http://answers.yahoo.com/question/index?qid=20091113104039AAbnGet <>

      The report at qid=20091113104039AAbnGet is an accumulation of my own investigations into itch rash illnesses that are due to my own non-alcoholic fatty liver disease, even though I have a fairly low BMI of 26.

      Finally, because I am not an MD who could diagnose you ‘personally,’ I feel I should add that although I have seen that most root problems for 'skin' issues for myself and others has usually ‘always’ been from long and or short term allergic reactions to 'something' or poor hygiene COMBINED WITH a weakened lymph liver kidney skin and immune systems - IF the following symptoms would ever occur - I ‘think’ the worst rash one might possibly have quickly acquired is from deadly bacterial meningitis, ALTHOUGH bacterial meningitis would be VERY RARE.

      The two quotes below are from: <> http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bacterial_Meningitis <>

      <>
      “IF a rash is present, it may indicate a particular cause of meningitis; for instance, meningitis caused by meningococcal bacteria may be accompanied by a characteristic rash.”
      <>

      <>
      “The MOST common symptoms of meningitis are headache and neck stiffness associated with fever, confusion or altered consciousness, vomiting, and an inability to tolerate light (photophobia) or loud noises (phonophobia). SOMETIMES, especially in small children, only nonspecific symptoms may be present, such as irritability and drowsiness.”

  6. QUESTION:
    Natural eczema treatment for a 10 month child?
    My son is 10 months old and has had a rash (i'm told it is eczema) on his body for about 3 months. I have been given creams by the pediatrician, with no luck.
    I am looking for advice on any natural remedies and creams that are suitable for infants.
    The itching is bad, his skin is raw, the creams I used make the rash go away for a day but it some back worse.

    • ANSWER:
      I did some searching around and found something on YouTube about eczema and your children. There is no known cure for eczema, but there are triggers to stay away from, I see someone has listed the triggers.

      As for treating the eczema, there is a natural range of products made from the fat of the african crocodile, it all has to do with the peptides contained in the crocodiles DNA. It is a relativly new product on the market, I have tried it, and it works.
      It takes away the itching and then makes the skin heal a great deal quicker, check out youtube and search crocodile oil eczema.

  7. QUESTION:
    What's a good natural treatment for eczema, dont want to use hydrocortisones?
    my little girl who's 2 1/2 has atopic eczema pretty bad we've tried E45, eurax, vaseline, aloe vera gel, and cocoa butter with little success. I dont want to use the steroid creams on her as i dont like the side effects to them.

    • ANSWER:
      Here is a list of do's and don'ts that I hope you will find helpful.

      Things not to do:-

      Don't use biological powders
      Don't use fabric softeners
      Don't use soap or detergents to wash with
      Don't use standard shower gels or bath additives

      Things to do :-

      Try Fairy Snow -the old fashioned powder
      Use dryer balls
      Use a soap free cleanser to wash hands etc.
      Use a moisturising shower gel like Oilatum
      Use a moisture bath additive like Aveeno
      Use a good moisturiser like Aveeno
      Use it very frequently, you can't over-moisturise!
      Use antihistamines for itch, a non sedative one like loratidine in the morning and a sedative one such piriton at night.
      You may need to use steroids creams/ointments for flare up areas. Use the mildest you can, for the shortest time possible. If you do not use anything above 1% hydrocotisone there are effectively no risks of any steroid side effects.

      Sorry if you knew all of that already :-(

      if you want to try herbal remedies,well thats your choice but make sure you ask your doctor and make sure they can be used alongside conventional treatment.

  14. QUESTION:
    Natural Eczema Treatment?
    I am a junior in high school, and my eczema has gotten pretty bad this school year. It hasn't been this bad since I was in elementary school.

    I've been stressing a lot about college, studying for SATs/ACTs, and I've been struggling with my grades this year. Due to other circumstances I was unable to play sports this year. This stress has also affected my diet, I've been eating a lot of junk food and I havent been exercising. Overall this whole year was bad and stressful and it's been causing my eczema to flair up.

    I was given prescription drugs and ointments for my rashes but they do not work. Ive tried different lotions but they just irritate my skin even more. I would like to try more natural remedies and see of they work

    What are some foods that I should eat? What kinds of foods should I avoid? What vitamins should I take? I have about a month left until summer starts, so I just need to ensure the last few weeks of school until I can start excercising again. Do you guys have any other tips and advice?

    • ANSWER:
      The cause of eczema is overreaction of the immune system. Identifying certain foods, chemicals, etc can be very helpful in battling this disease. I try to avoid milk products which trigger my flare-ups.
      After using number of prescription drugs I've turned to the natural treatments.
      Now I use SerenaSkin herbal remedies.
      After about 2 weeks of using ointment and spray my skin has been cleared up, and I continue with eczema extract, which controls the immune system. My skin has been clear for months.
      It is the only treatment I have found that provides me complete relief when I use it as directed.

    • ANSWER:
      Hi Susan.

      TREATMENT OF ECZEMA (Self-Care at Home)

      Removing whatever is causing the allergic reaction is the easiest and most effective treatment. This may be as simple as changing your laundry detergent or as difficult as moving to a new climate or changing jobs.

      Prevent dry skin by taking warm (not hot) showers rather than baths. Use a mild soap or body cleanser. Dry yourself very carefully and apply moisturizing skin lotions all over your body. Avoid lotions with fragrances or other irritating substances.

      Avoid wearing tight-fitting, rough, or scratchy clothing.

      Avoid scratching the rash. If you can't stop yourself from scratching, cover the area with a dressing. Wear gloves at night to minimize skin damage from scratching.

      Anything that causes sweating can irritate the rash. Avoid strenuous exercise during a flare.

      If the allergy-causing agent cannot be removed or identified, the next step is to lessen the allergic inflammatory response.

      • Apply an nonprescription steroid cream (hydrocortisone) along with anti-itching lotion (menthol/camphor, such as calamine). The cream must be applied as often as possible without skipping days until the rash is gone.
      • Diphenhydramine (Benadryl) in pill form may be taken for the itching. Caution - this medication may make you too drowsy to drive a car or operate machinery safely.
      • Clean the area with a hypoallergenic soap every day. Apply lubricating cream or lotion after washing.

      Avoid physical and mental stress. Eating right, light activity, and adequate sleep will help you stay healthy, which can help prevent flares.

      Do not expect a quick response. Eczema is easier to control than cure.

      TREATMENT OF ECZEMA (Medical Treatment)

      Once your health care provider is sure you have eczema, the mainstays of therapy are anti-inflammatory medication and relief from the itching.

      Prescription-strength steroid cream and antihistamine medication are the usual treatments.

      Diet restrictions and chemical skin-drying agents may also be offered, but their success is controversial.

      For severe cases not responding to high-potency steroid cream, alternate treatments may be tried. These include coal tar, PUVA (psoralen + ultraviolet A light), and chemotherapy agents.

      Take Care. Regards.

  17. QUESTION:
    Is there a cure for Eczema being researched and is there any natural treatments for the itchiness?
    I have been suffering from eczema since I was a child and I was wondering if anyone knows if there is any research being done to find a cure for eczema. Also if there are any natural treatments for it because taking hydrocortisone cream is pretty bad for me considering it's a steroid. Anyone with first hand personal experience with eczema? I'll take any suggestions from experienced people because i'm desperate to have the itching stop. If anyone has any inside knowledge about eczema both a cure and a natural treatment please let me know! Thanks!

    • ANSWER:
      In my case, natural treatments were the only thing to help me. Even hydrocortisone stopped working after a while. It's not meant to be used long term anyway, since it thins out the skin and often leaves white splotches wherever it's put. The key to truly getting rid of eczema is to really take a look at what is causing it in the first place. More than likely it is environmental factors like the products you use and maybe even the food you eat. So, once you find out what is causing your flare ups, replace those products with natural products. If you want to know how I got rid of my eczema, click the link below.

    what are good natural or non-prescription treatments for eczema?

    • ANSWER:

  24. QUESTION:
    Is there a 100% natural cure or treatment for eczema?
    I am an adult with eczema on my hands.

    • ANSWER:
      depends whats causing it. low levels of hydrochloric acid in the stomach can lead to "leaky gut syndrome" , in which the intestines become porous and allow food particles to ener the blood stream, causing allergic reactions. Candidaisis, or a systemic yeast infection, can cause it too. Keeping your ph over 6 is a good way to fend off many ailments in general. You may have food allergies. Dairy is a big culprit in eczema. Also, rule out chemical sensitivities. Skin lotion often has perfumes that can cause this, and classically make-up can cause eczema also. If its make up try something that is all natural (health food store). Even ivory soap can cause eczema. You could be getting exposed to fiberglass, that definattely causes eczema, rashes. Dont rule out air pollutants.

      There are many posibilities, and it may take a while but like me, you will eventually figure it out. Remember, eczema is your body's way of telling you there's something wrong!

      Hope these suggestions help!

    How to treat eczema on my scalp?
    I've had eczema since i was a kid, usually just in my elbows and fingers
    but recently I've developed it on my scalp.
    Now, i can't use my steroid cream on my scalp, obviously, but I was wondering

  26. QUESTION:
    Do you know of any natural treatments for perioral dermatitis that work?
    My son is 2.5 years old. I'm 95% sure he has perioral dermatitis. He has a long history of eczema and allergies. We use a topical steroid on his skin, and started using it on his face, for a rash we thought was "regular" eczema, but probably was just irritation from using a pacifier. Now that the pacifier is gone, the rash is still there (because of the steroids, and several other possible triggers). I've read 101 articles on google about perioral dermatitis and natural "remedies". Now I have a list of things to try, but would like know if anyone has ever had any actual success with them, before I go shelling out a ton of cash. I don't want to resort to prescription medication and antibiotics until I've ruled everything else out.
    These are the ones I've read about (but if you have any others I would love to know):
    Apple Cider Vinegar
    Manuka Honey
    Yogurt (would have to be goat yogurt, my son is allergic to cow dairy)
    Grape Seed Extract
    Calendula Oil

    Do any of these work? If they do, how do I use them?

    • ANSWER:
      See a pediatrician or a dermatologist. Perioral dermatitis usually affects women in their 20's and 30's, so I wouldn't try anything until you know what you're dealing with. I finally grew out of mine, but there was a topical ointment, something with a name similar to Tricyclomen...that worked very well for me while I had it.

  27. QUESTION:
    Please help--I am pretty worried about taking this steroid cream the doctor prescribed?
    He took zero medical history, only filled out form with name and address and insurance. No assistant took any medical history.

    I was told I have eczema..I broke out in an extremely itchy rash on my calves after remodeling. He concurred it was probably an allergy (to the dust or possible mold stirred up) that went to eczema.

    Natural treatments I tried did not help. I want to get rid of it as it is unsightly and itchy but I am worried about potential problems.

    He ordered a steroid cream (betamethasone dip aug .05% cream) for 6 weeks. He said it would be a lot better in a week but if I discontinued it before 6 weeks, it may come back.

    I have just been told I may have high blood pressure, I had a fasting blood sugar of 151 (but ai c was 5.9)..this means I am prediabetic they said, Also I have developed severe gout and have arthritis. I am also clinically depressed and long felt I had adrenal insufficiency due to high stress for 20 years and symptoms of this.

    I read this steroid cream
    cream can cause blood glucose to raise and be not advised to take if one has high blood pressure or diabetes. Also it interferes by increasing inflammation which may hurt my gout/arthritis and can exacerbate depression. It causes weight gain and redistribution of weight (in a bad way). If used more than a week, it can cause the adrenal glands to shrink and may cause a rebound effect if not gradually tapered off. It takes the adrenals about 3 months to start working right again and producing its hormones (I think cortisol).

    I have a phobia about medicines and almost never take them but I am afraid this eczema rash on both legs will never leave if I don't use it, I am angry this doctor did not ask me one medical question or get any medical history. I recently was forced into an HMO) and he is the only doctor I see who is an approved dermatologist. The office was packed and I was only with the doctor about 4 minutes..It was fast for everyone it looked like. I am used to doctors
    who spend 15-30 minutes with me and they always take a history..I am unsure if I should take it. Do you feel it would be safe? Would he have prescribed it if it was dangerous with certain medical conditions? Does anyone have any experience with taking a steroid cream like this.
    I have had this rash since December several problems getting in sooner and two doctors didn't know what it was, but they were not specialist like this doctor who took no history and glanced at the rash a minute.

    • ANSWER:
      get a second opinion. See another doctor. Explain to them that you are wary of this cream because of your health history. I only read into the first part of your additional information because I'd read enough right there to know that the doctor made a mistake. Any time you have to watch your blood sugar or blood pressure a doctor should NEVER prescribe something that can throw your body for a loop.

      The new doctor should take your medical history into account and either prescribe something to help keep your medical conditions in check (less preferred as this can cause problems, too) or even prescribe a different treatment for the eczema (preferred). Or he might find that it isn't eczema at all.

      Good luck, and hopefully you'll find the right answers.

      -----------

      edit:

      Reading further, and I apologize I missed this, since you've been forced into an HMO, call the insurance company and explain the situation. REPORT THE DOCTOR TO THEM! this kind of negligence needs to be noted. They should be able to assign a new dermatologist for you as well.

  28. QUESTION:
    eczema?? on face and neck?
    So i have eczema on my face and a little under the neck. and it really didnt start to show but now it is quite noticable. i used steorid creams to get rid of it, and im not gonna lie it worked. but now i have wrinkles on my eye area and neck area and i would like to know if its permanent damage that the steroids caused my skin to wrinkle?

    -what are any natural treatments i should do with my eczema and what should i do with my wrinkles.

    keep in mind i dealt with this for 22 years.

    • ANSWER:
      There are several natural treatments of which you can use. But they whether for you is a different answer. However, I can provide some methods that my patients say work effectively for them, and they are as follows:

      The first thing you should do is monitor your diet and try eating foods that might trigger any allergies. A larger percentage of People that suffer from asthma also suffer from Eczema, research has shown Eczema to be a body response to foods that trigger allergies as well. Dairy products are advised to be kept away from.

      Use plenty of Moisturizer on your skin - this prevents your skin from becoming dry and itching. Get a moisterizer that is comfortable and easy to use. In the summer place your moisturizer in the fridge to keep it cool.

      One cause of Eczema is an inbalance in your digestive system or your levels of acidity are too high. Taking Kelp supplements can help controll and bring down the acidity levels make prevent Eczema from occuring.

      Stay away from lotion perfumes as these can irritate and cause itching on your skin. Som even cause burning to occur so keep away from them.

      Vitamin E supplements are good for the skin and help assist in the bodys general healing process. Vitamin E is an essential element that the human body use to heal itself quickly. This lotion also acts as a barrier to the skins surface thus preventing it from being dry.

      Another way to treat infections caused by Eczema is Neem, using this natural treatment product can help heal sores that are caused by excessive scratching on the skin. Neem is an evergreen plant that can be used as a poultice on the skin to prevent infections reoccurring.

      As for treatment of wrinkles caused by steroidal creams in your undereye area, you'd have to vist a dermatologist.

    • ANSWER:
      Hi Janie

      Here is a remedy that has success.

      1. Take 1-3 droppersful of Echinacea Plus Tincture (at herbdoc.com).
      2. Rub Garlic oil ALL over the affected area (Garlic will kill anything if you use enough of it)
      3. Give 1-3 glasses of Activated Charcoal Slurry per day (to absorb the toxins out of the blood)
      4. Mix equal parts of Aloe Vera Gel, Slippery Elm Powder and Activated Charcoal Powder together (absorbs the toxins externally)
      5. Apply a thin layer of this mixture over the AFFECTED area(s).
      6. Continue this treatment, until the desired Results are achieved.

      Ive seen it done, but obviously this is not the easy way with a std drug or surgery. This is healing at it's finest and you have freedom when you can do this for yourself or others.

      Cause
      Eczema is often called Dermatitis, and may be a symptom of an omega-3 fatty acid deficiency. Eczema can be due to allergies, allergies secondary to digestive disorders such as hydrochloric acid deficiency, rashes secondary to immune diseases, genetic metabolic disorders, and/or nutritional deficiencies, especially of niacin (vitamin B3) and B6, as well as other B vitamins.

      To minimize your risk of developing eczema, avoid irritating substances, wear natural nonirritating materials, use soothing ointments, and check to see if dietary, nutritional, and/or and allergy-causing factors need to be considered.

      Aromatherapy: Bergamot, chamomile, lavender, melissa, neroli, eucalyptus, geranium, and/or juniper can help speed healing and relief of symptoms when applied topically to the affected areas.

      Diet: Eat an organic, whole foods diet and avoid potentially allergy-causing foods, especially sugar, wheat, milk, and dairy products, including yogurt. Also avoid excess consumption of fruit, especially citrus and sour, as these foods may aggravate symptoms.

      Flower Essences: Rescue Remedy® for accompanying stress, and Rescue Remedy Cream® on the affected areas.

      Herbs: Herbal remedies such as cleavers, nettle, yellowdock, or red clover tea or tinctures may be very effective. They are often combined with relaxing herbs such as chamomile, linden flowers, or skullcap. One combination would be equal parts of cleavers, nettle, and chamomile drunk as an infusion three times a day. A stronger mixture combines the tinctures of figwort, burdock, and cleavers in equal parts; take one teaspoon of this mixture three times a day.

      To alleviate itching, bathe affected areas of your body with lukewarm or cold chickweed infusion. For cracked, dry, or painful skin, use a salve made from calendula flowers and St. John`s wort leaves.

      Goldenseal applied externally may also be helpful.

      Best of health to you
