    My Eczema Relief Formula

    1
    I have been struggling with eczema since October, 2013. It was something new for me, as I had never had any skin problems before, whatsoever. I broke out one day on my chest, legs, arms forehead and on my face by my ears. Not knowing from what I was suffering, I ran to a doctor and got the shocking news that it was an outbreak of eczema. Hesitantly, I agreed to a steroid shot. Eczema went away...

    I believe I have a recent onset of eczema

    1
    I recently have been under a lot of stress. The skin on my face and neck which is usually balanced and without blemishes broke out on both sides of my cheeks. My face became unusually oily. So I treated it the way most people would with blemish treatment, astringent, and spot treatment (proactive). I soon began to notice that my skin was becoming very dry, scally and even leather like in feel and...

    All Natural Eczema Treatment

    Eczema is relatively new for me. Over the summer I started getting dry skin on my right eye. It was annoying but didnt bother me too much. Then the eczema symptoms slowly started progressing and getting worse. When the eczema would flair up my eye lid would swell. About 3 weeks ago my eye lid was so swollen I couldn't see or go to work. I ended up calling a chinese herbalist doctor after my...

    OTC help

    I've had mild to medium eczema on my one leg and my navel area for about the last 8 years or so. I believe my mother had it too, but was never diagnosed with it. When I didn't have insurance I tried over the counter eczema treatments, none of which worked. Until I decided to try aloe vera gel. I figured since aloe vera has medicinal powers I would give it a try. I bought Fruit of the Earth aloe...

    20 Years of Eczema Gone in a Few Weeks

    1
    Hi,I have had mild to moderate eczema on my legs for about twenty years. I went to the Dr. about ten years ago who prescribed me a deep moisturizing cream and topical steroid for my legs. This treatment worked moderately but slowly over the years the eczema kept crawling up from my lower leg up to my thighs. The only time that I could get it to go away was when I was on oral steroids for an...

    Hey guys - I'm new to the site, first time posting here! I'm currently typing this during the worst flare I've had in 4 months: dry itchy arms (from hands to shoulders), chest, neck, and small patches popping up on my stomach and thighs... yeah. Cremes give almost no relief, my wrists are desert-dry. Can't exercise because sweat aggravates everything, just want to eat all day long. Not fun.So...

    A Recent Discovery

    1
    A lot has changed for me since I was last on this support group. My eczema had gotten so bad that I would wake up with dry blood on my sheets, and new scabs formed overnight. I was in constant pain and discomfort, and was taken to a determatologist for the second time in my life. HE CHANGED EVERYTHING  for me. He did bloodwork on me for environmental allergens, something that i had not been...

    My son has had eczema since he was a year old. He was also diagnosed with asthma the same time. Oddly, his asthma is gone, but his eczema is getting worse. Since November of last year, he started getting eczema on his eyelids, so severe they would swell shut! His ears crack open and bleed, his mouth around the corners crack open and bleed, and so does everywhere else. The eczema on his eyes has...
