    OTC or home remedies for eczema?
    I have a stubborn flare up of eczema on my hands right now. It is not responding well to anything I try at home and I cannot afford to go to the doc right now and get an rx for steroid cream. So far I have tried Aveeno lotion, cortizone 10, wearing vinyl gloves when I shampoo my hair and Eucerin which just stung like hell when I put it on. Anyone know of anything else I can try?

  4. QUESTION:
    Does anyone know a home remedy for hand eczema (Pompholyx) ?
    I am having a severe outbreak that is incredibly painful. I can't afford to go to the doctor. Over the past few days I have been soaking my hands in vinegar water and putting a hydrocortisone cream on. Not only has this not helped, the outbreak has become worse. It is on both hands and starting to spread to my face. What can I do to get rid of it? Also, I was curious if it is spread by contact. This is the first time I have had it on my face and I don't understand how it got there.

  6. QUESTION:
    Home Remedies for Eczema?
    I get eczema really bad on my hands that gets worst in summer. I know there's a prescription for it, but it's very expensive. I bandage them sometimes which only really stops me from scratching. If someone else experiences this and knows good treatments please share :)

    • ANSWER:
      The stress is one of the triggers of eczema. The cause of eczema is overreaction of the immune system. I healed my eczema with SerenaSkin natural herbal treatment. Along with ointment and spray i used eczema extract which balances the immune system and prevents break outs. It is the most effective treatment I’ve tried.

  7. QUESTION:
    Adult Eczema issue, home remedies?
    So in my adult years I haven't really had any BAD breakouts...until now. I've never had eczema on my hands, but right now, I kind of look like a rotting corpse. I've tried so many different things and it is healing, slowly, but is there anything some one can suggest to perhaps speed up the process? I WAS weeping, it's not anymore, I've used calamine lotion, that cleared that up. Right now I have mostly scabs and dry skin. Most of the time they don't hurt but sometimes there's a sting. I've used my extra strength stuff for itching, and polysporin for the cuts. I know over washing them right now would be bad, but at the same time I wonder if baking soda in the tub, or an oatmeal soak would be helpful. please leave your suggestions.
    first answer is spam, and the second is incorrect... It's eczema, not Candida....

  9. QUESTION:
    Home remedy for eczema?
    I have eczema on my index finger, right hand.
    I have gone to a doctor on a Naval Base and she told me that she was unsure of what it was, it could be staff or eczema.
    She gave me two creams, one was bacitracin zinc and the other was hydro cortisone cream.
    Neither have worked, I applied them three times a day until it went away, then it came back again!
    I have tried more than once, but it always comes back.
    Hopefully some of you know some home remedies to work, I'm going to be 19 in 4 days and I have this hideous finger.
    Thanks to all answers

  10. QUESTION:
    home remedies for itiching of eczema?
    I was on interfon/copegus combo for 1 year (hep C treatment) About 6 months into it I started with a small patch on my chin which spread throughout my bottom lip all the way down to my collar bones, even the palm of my hands. I saw a dermatologists several times. After 3 rounds of different antibotics, serveral gels and ointments and stopping treatment it still remained. The itiching and buring drives me crazy. A friens at work gave me some Desonide 0.05% ointments that cleared it up within 3 to 5 days, but once I used it up it started coming back within 2 days in the same areas, but now it is on the back if my legs at the bend and the same on my arms. I am so tired of spending money for doctor visits and expensive medications. I have been doing it for a year. I thought once I got off treatment it would just go away. Please help I am desperate...

    • ANSWER:
      Find an allergy friendly, fragrance free moisturiser (like Sorbolene in Australia) and put that on the rash. Possibly Calamine Lotion (over the counter at pharmacy) may help with the itching. With the ointments you already have, its important you use them sparingly (only use a tiny amount), as using alot makes your skin thinner and makes it more prone to eczema. Be very careful about putting home remedies on your skin.

      Try to work out what your triggers are. I'd be looking at your laundry detergent given that its all over your body, as well as the materials your clothes are made of. Try an allergy friendly detergent and give the clothes an extra rinse cycle in the machine, and try 100% cotton/acrylic clothes. Check your sheets and blankets, don't use any wool or duck feathers for a while and thoroughly wash any bedding that has been remotely near either of those things.

      I'm currently using Advantan cream, it worked for a while but its losing its kick now.

      Good luck.

  11. QUESTION:
    Remedies for chronic eczema?
    I've been to the dermatologist and used many different creams and prescriptions but none of it works. I have chronic eczema on the backs of my legs and all over my hands. It's painful at times, especially having it on my hands, but mostly it's embarrassing to have people see it and always ask, "What is that!?" I've heard that hydrogen peroxide dries it up but I haven't tried it. Do you have any home remedies or such that could help?

    • ANSWER:
      Start at home.
      Remove the trigger: Eczema flare-ups are frequently caused by an allergic reaction. It can be a reaction to anything from new laundry detergent to that new bush you planted outside your bedroom window. Sometimes it can be hard to figure out what’s triggering your outbreaks. Try keeping a journal of your symptoms and accompanying conditions, such as a spell of dry weather or trying a new seafood dish at the neighborhood block party.

      Over-the-counter medications: Another of the common home remedies for eczema is using antihistamines. These drugs can relieve the symptoms by blocking the substances that trigger your body’s allergic reactions. These types of drugs can make you dizzy or drowsy, and they may not be appropriate if you have certain conditions, like diabetes, liver disease, or phenylketonuria (PKU). They may also be unsafe for children. Consult your health care professional if you have questions about over-the-counter treatments.

      Reduce your stress: From your iPhone ringing in the middle of the night to caring for your kids and your parents, stress almost seems to be a required part of today’s lifestyle. The fact is that stress—even the everyday kind—can be a key trigger for eczema inflammation. If you’re going to get serious about banishing that uncomfortable and unsightly itch, you need to get serious about stress relief.

      Avoid things that dry your skin: While many eczema sufferers are aware of how important it is to moisturize the skin, there are hidden skin-drying ingredients in products we use everyday. Antiperspirants, for example, often contain aluminum chloride, a notorious drying agent. And as much as many of us love a hot shower, especially on a cold winter morning, that hot water can zap the moisture right out of the skin. Try lukewarm showers or baths instead.

  12. QUESTION:
    HELP! I'm pretty sure I have Dyshidrotic Eczema/breakout on hands, What can I do to stop itching & appearence?
    In Novemeber I noticed that these tiny (pin sized) water bumped were forming out the outer edge of my hands away from my body (close to my pinky), its on both hands, I have it on my feet (back of heel by ankle). I've seen several doctors for this, been on antibiotics, prednisone, allergy shots, ointments, creams, you name it! I've recently tried home remedies... NOTHING works. It goes away hands go back to perfectly normal- then it recurs. I dont know if its stress or what it is, but right now my hands & one finger have these little bumps & its itchy, looks horrible & its driving me crazy. I know it's not uncommon, so SOMEONE PLEASE HELP--- what have you tried, thats worked?

    • ANSWER:
      Eczema is frequently caused by dairy or another allergy or intolerance. You may want to see if your doctor will run some allergy tests for you, so that rather than treating the symptoms, you can avoid the cause.

  16. QUESTION:
    What are your home remedies for atopic dermatitis?
    A couple years ago I was getting some really bad pus-y bumps on my hand and I was diagnosed with atopic dermatitis. They gave me some extra strength cream of some sort for it and that has been working. I still have some of it but I'm almost out, and my dermatitis has been getting worse on my hands. It is not as bad as it was before (before it was a lot of pus-y bumps and now it's mostly very dry scaly skin) but it is on a lot more area of my hands than before. Are there any other medications or home remedies you know of to help this form of eczema?

    • 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 sea food 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 3 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:
    hand eczema, help?
    hi, I have diagnosed myself with hand eczema... I went to my family doctor's office on a couple of occasions over the past few years and he told me I had a mild case of hives due to exposure to some allergen. I first developed hives after washing the dishes 4 years ago, and since then I had a percistant rash on my right hand that never seems to go away, and gets worse after I use hand soap or touch something.

    right now, it seems to flare up for no physical reason, it flares up due to stress sometimes. I know its eczema

    do you guys know of any home remedies to controll the symptoms?
    Ok I'm not even sure if it is eczema, it all started when I used a particularly strong detergent to wash the kitchen floor 4 years ago, and started helping my mom clean the dishes, thus exposing my bare hands to dish soap.

    like I said, its a self diagnosis, I could be wrong... can eczema be brought on suddenly by exposure of the skin to detergents?

    • ANSWER:
      some eczema treatments are harmful to your skin since they can contain ingredients that can potentially harm your skin rather than making it heal.

      you can try covering the affected area with a gauze, be able to keep your fingernails short to avoid scratching it. a break in the skin can cause a secondary skin infection. be aware of it.

      the key to treat eczema on face is never to keep the skin of the face dry. check out your diet and avoid foods that can trigger allergy on the skin. keep the skin hydrated by drinking adequate amount of fluids. using an all natural skin moisturizer can help keep the skin moist all day.

      know what are the triggers of eczema and try to avoid. consult a dermatologist for the best precautions. visit http://www.skinoriginal.com for more tips that can help avoid eczema flares.

  18. QUESTION:
    How do I moisturise really dry skin on my hands?
    I've got really dry, lined skin on the back of my hands. I know it's definately not eczema but it's been like that all the way through winter. I apply skin creams at least twice daily which work temporarily, until I wash my hands. Even creams for eczema and E45 aren't working. I've tried putting the cream on and then wearing plastic gloves, but it still doesn't work. There's no reason for them to be so bad, I don't spend a lot of time outdoors or spend a lot of time with them in water. Has anybody got any tips for remedies I could try out at home?

    • ANSWER:
      Don't use plastic gloves - use cotton so your skin can breath. Get a heavy moisturizer/cream like aquaphor, eurcirine or vaseline - something that will really lock in the moisture from water after you shower/wash your hands. I've had eczema since I was born and now its just dry skin and thats what my mom tells me to do and its been working for me for idk how long.

  19. QUESTION:
    eczema problem?
    just a few months ago i developed eczema on my hands. i feel like ive tried everything! i have a prescription ointment from the dermatologist, tried a few eucerin products and they don't really help. does anyone have an home remedies or anything that works great for them? my hands are always red and itchy and sore, i can't take it anymore!

    • ANSWER:
      There is not cure for eczema, which Im sure you know. However, outbreaks usually occur when you have eaten or came in contact with a particular food or chemical. The best way to control eczema is to try to keep a journal of things you have eaten or touched that may have caused your outbreak. Then simply try to eliminate them from your daily life. (which sometimes seems impossible, I know) Eczema comes in many forms, it sounds to me like you have contact dermatitis, many suffer from this. To ease the outbreaks you can ask doctor if its okay to use hydrocortisone creams for itching. Also be sure to monitor your laundry soap, dish soap, shampoo, household cleaners, ect. When you do not have an outbreak try to take care of your skin with a lotion, (one that you are sure is not causing an outbreak, Cetaphil is good, and so is Curel)

  20. QUESTION:
    Are there any natural remedies for eczema?
    I've suffered from eczema since i was a baby, it's annoying, unattractive and i hate it. As all eczema suffers will agree, it's hell.
    I use steroid creams but they've thinned my skin terribly, i get it on my legs, inside my elbows, face and sometimes on my hands and feet. Usually get it worse when it's hot and i sweat.
    Basically i wanna know if anyone has found anything other than pharmaceutical creams/lotions etc that helps?
    I'm allergic to E45 cream so i can't use that.
    Anything natural or that can be made at home easily and not too expensive?
    Thankyou so much for anything you can suggest! x
    Or is there anything i really should avoid?
    what makes it worse or agitates it?

    • ANSWER:
      I've had some success with immunomodulator ointments. They use the tradename Tacrolimus and are sold as Elidel or Protopic. They take a couple of weeks to get started, but worked very well on me.

      I should mention that I've been undergoing phototherapy at a univeristy hospital since 2004 and it's been working great! Apart from a few occasional flares, I've been clean once I got past the first few months. No drug side effects or drug interaction problems to worry about.

  21. QUESTION:
    Eczema Pompholyx Help?
    I've had this type of eczema (plus normal eczema) on my hands for quite a while now. I used to get it on my feet when I was younger, but suddenly it has moved to my hands and is not on my feet anymore.
    I hate it so so so so much because i hate little blisters and lumpy bumpy things..
    It makes me feel sick looking of photos of it and I guess I am lucky cause i don't have it that bad compared to most people.
    Anyway.. is there any good home remedies or anything I could do to try and calm it down? I think I seem to get it when my hands start to get warm, but then I used a steroid cream called Fucibet which only seems to work sometimes, and then they come back again.
    Any help and I would be very very grateful

    • ANSWER:
      When I was prescribed steroid creams for my hand eczema it never helped until my dr gave me a super high potency one that I used for two weeks, twice daily. It worked very well to get rid of it almost completely then I worked hard to keep moisturized and avoid triggers to keep it under control. If the steroids have been low potency- try asking for something really strong to zap it.

      Also, I use CeraVe cream. It is really great. I was using Eucerin for a long time but when you have cracks in your skin you might as well be pouring lemon juice on them because that's how it feels. CeraVe is a little hard to find though.

  23. QUESTION:
    How to treat severe eczema?
    My boyfriend has severe severe eczema.
    He has it on his hands, arms legs face neck scalp knees legs butt feet..
    everywhere.

    He's tried the steroiid cream the doctors continously prescribe.
    he's tried everything over the counter.. we've tried apple cider vinegar "with mother" baths and application and even ingesting it..
    He thought maybe he had celiac disease so for the last 2 weeks he's been on a gluten free diet, eating nothing with gluten.
    If he had that, he should have seen some healing and noticed a difference within a week..
    It's getting worse.
    I hate watching him suffer like this, he says it burns and hurts and is driving him crazy

    I keep looking at all these home remedies, but everything we try just doesn't work. I want to know how to help him, he's close to giving up.

    He's gone to the dermatologist many many times, he's had a biopsy of a affected area and nothing was found.. this is so bad, I get eczema on my wrist during winters but its a tiny patch, and it goes away when the weather gets better.

    His is relentless, it won't ever GO it just comes.. I know if he'd stop scratching it'd go away but the itch and burn is too bad. He can't sleep..cant do much of anything becasue of the itching and everything..

    So, have any of you had this problem? and found a perfect cure for the itch??

    Please help!

  24. QUESTION:
    How to tell if I have eczema or not?
    I have this horrible dry, patchy, rough, itchy Area on my foot about the size of a frickin mango. When it gets really itchy, I noticed there are little white blister looking things in there. I also have it on both of the palms of my hand. Ive been to a dermatologist and she said it was eczema. They gave me creams and ointments but that stuff didnt work. Any suggestion for OTC or home remedies or what the heck it could be?
    I have hda it for just about 4 years. I have tried Aquaphor, Eucerin, Lanacane, you name it.

    • ANSWER:
      My boyfriend has it and it's terrible. It flares up when he's under stress, touches grass, food or certain metals that he's allergic to and from being too sweaty.
      He's used Gold Bond Ultimate Softening body lotion with Shea Butter. It works wonders when you keep the area moist. His doctor also gave him a heavy duty cream, Betamethasone Dipropionate, it's works a lot better than the other ointments they were giving him.
      As for any other OTC or home remedy treatments try using gentle soaps for the shower and gentle laundry detergents like Ecos (found at costco).
      if you type "Eczema home remedies" into google you can find a bunch of sites with suggestions but they will call for weird ingredients that you can't exactly find at the grocery store.

  26. QUESTION:
    Dermatitis/eczema Question?
    I got dermatitis from putting on a hand cream. I have very very sensitive skin. I've had dry hands for as long as I can remember and can't go through the day comfortably without applying hand cream all the time. Now I have dermatitis to make everything so much worse. My doctor prescribed me cream. Cortisone cream or something. I put it on but my skin soaks it up right away and I have to put it on like 30 minutes later so my hands don't get so dry again. I'm sick of putting cream on my hands. Does anyone know another way, maybe a natural, home remedy that can relieve the symptoms of my dry skin? Even with putting the cream on, my knuckles still crack when I move my fingers.

  27. QUESTION:
    I have a 10 week old daughter and have questions?
    okay so my daughter is 10 weeks old. And i have a few questions about some things.
    1. She is currently on Good Start Soy formula, but everytime she drinks it afterwards i will burp her real good but she will still...not spit it up but like it comes shootin out of her mouth. She eats 5 ounces like the doctor ordered and i even cut it back to 4 ounces but that doesn't change anything. I recently tried the Similac Soy formula and she did better with that then she was with Good Start but she was still spitting up but not as much. I thought about calling her doctor to change her formula but i just don't know if that's the thing i should be doing. What do yall think? Or what do yall recommend?

    2. When should i start placing my baby on her tummy to lay down or to sleep? I am very very scared because of the whole S.I.D.S situation.

    3. What are some home remedies for Cradle cap & Eczema?

    • ANSWER:
      1. I didn't feed Josiah formula, but he would spit up like that too. Projectile! My mom says that I used to do it too, on occasion, all over other people. It's just what some babies do. Some spit up more than others. I know some mothers who keep a bib constantly on their baby because they spit up so much. As long as she's growing well and not cranky cause she's hungry, I wouldn't worry about it.
      2. Josiah is still sleeping on his back, he can't sleep on his tummy. But my parents put all of us on our tummies to sleep (four kids) and none of us died from SIDS. It's up to you. For babies with colic they actually recommend sleeping on their tummy.
      3. For cradle cap, it's not a home remedy, but we use baby oil and apply it at every bath and wash it off gently scrubbing. We bought a baby brush and we scrub gently in circles like that. He had cradle cap and doesn't and has been cradle cap free for 5 months. Cradle cap is because the oil glands in baby's scalps haven't regulated yet so you need to add some oil.

  28. QUESTION:
    itchy, swollen, red mark around mouth?
    I have had this for about a year now, and I am getting sick of it now. I am a teenage girl, and do not have a healthy diet, if that has anything to do with it. It looks like a red rash around my lips, just on the edge of them. Sometimes it will settle down, and almost go away, like there will be a small red mark in the corner of my lips, then it will flare up and get itchy. Then go back to being inflamed, red and irritated again. The doctor said it was from having dry lips, but i have tried everything and nothing is working. I have tried petroleum jelly everyday for weeks, and at night I pile it on. In the morning there is no difference. I have also tried paw paw lip balm and cortisone cream - didn't work. It isn't flaky, I try not to scratch it so it doesn't get worse, but sometimes i can't help myself.

    I look like a clown, and it's really embarrassing. Any home remedies? Or suggestions on what it is, or how to get rid of it/ reduce redness & swelling? I also do get quite severe eczema on my hands, and have had eczema all my life. It doesn't flare up when i use any specific thing, except paw paw lip balm, but i don't use that anymore. It just randomly flares up. Help please?

    Thank you!

  29. QUESTION:
    My scalp is itchy and peeling!!!!! :'(?
    My scalp is itchy and peeling!!!!!!
    I need a treatment asap!!!! I'm tired of having this itchy and peeling scalp!!!
    It all happened because of dyeing my hair using a product my friend suggested. I had no allergic reaction to it when I was doing the test, but it started itching like crazy a few days after I dyed my hair. I've tried a lot of dandruff shampoos like Head and Shoulders. They only heal my scalp a little bit, but it's still itchy and it comes back with full force. I've had it for five months or so. Is this considered Psoraisis? Not to mention, I also have eczema on my hands.

    Please list treatments for an itchy and peeling scalp. Please list the ones you've personally tried or a friend has tried and worked. I'm only 18 so of course I can't afford anything expensive. Please list home remedies. I'm going to try those first.

Please ask your parents and grandparents, even any old chinese ladies you might know if they have any old family remedies. Thank you!

    • ANSWER:
      My son is 18 months and he is constantly itchy as well. He has red spots all over and can't stop crying because of the itch. We went to the doctor and have a prescription ointment. It helps sometimes but it makes his skin very dry. We bathe him in lukewarm water with Aveeno Baby Oatmeal power for 10 min and lather him with Vaseline immediately after. I heard Aquaphor is good as well. I just eliminate milk last week but does not seem to help. He drinks soy milk now but he started to itch again two days ago. I will try to eliminate wheat and glutten. I hope this helps.

      Tea Tree Oil
      Tea Tree Oil is obtained from the Melaleuca alternifoliais tree from Australia. It is very effective against Acne as it contains bacteria-fighting substances called Terpenes. Acne is often caused by bacteria and the Terpenes either outright kill them or weaken them enough to be destroyed by protective antibodies. There are very little side effects from using Tea Tree Oil.

      Aloe Vera
      The watery gel from Aloe Vera plant is also a highly effective natural cure against Acne. The enzyme-rich gel has very soothing anti-inflammatory and anti-bacterial properties. It can also be taken internally and helps clean up and detox the digestive tract. This in turn can help clear up the skin.

      Zinc
      Zinc is taken in the form of capsules. It helps to strengthen the human immune system and to repair the skin.

      Vitamin A
      Vitamin A tablets are also a natural and effective Acne cure. Vitamin A promotes healthy skin.

      Vitamin E
      Vitamin E also helps in countering Acne. It is a natural antioxidant and beneficial for the skin. Vitamin E comes in soft gelatin capsules that contain Vitamin E, Soybean Oil, Glycerin, and Water.

      Some Natural Homemade Cures to counter Acne
      The most important thing to do if you suffer from Acne is to drink at least four pints of water every day. Drinking a lot of water is very beneficial to your skin. Including fresh fruit and leafy green vegetables in your daily diet will also bring about a marked improvement in the quality of your complexion.

      Before bathing, apply a mixture of tomato pulp – real tomota pulp, not packaged one – honey and rose-water to your face and keep for twenty minutes before washing off.

      At night, before going to bed, apply a mix of cream, glycerine, and lemon juice to your face and again keep it on for a short while before washing.

      Regular Yoga exercises will also improve skin and overall health.

      Things to Avoid
      Avoid touching your face all the time, keep your hair away from your face, and avoid picking at pimples.

      Another important thing if you're prone to Acne is to avoid using heavy make-up – in fact, it is preferable to avoid make-up altogether. For an effective cure, stay as natural as possible.
