How to Treat Eczema: Natural Treatment for Eczema

Eczema Picture

I wrote about the 3 1/2 month rash I had and how I received many diagnoses including scabies, nummular eczema, fungus and pithyriasis rosacea. I saw four dermatologists and the last 2 dermatologists said it was eczema, though I also had tinea versicolor on my upper back. One said that the pinkness in my inner elbow was classical eczema. The
good thing is that my skin has been pretty good except for a few spots at times. Nummular eczema can recur so I am staying vigilant. I was told by the last two dermatologists that eczema can’t be cured though it can be controlled. When I felt a respiratory infection coming on last weeks ago I noticed a circular patch on my stomach and one on lower back that was pink. I increased my natural supplements and including flax seed oil added moisturizer to my body a few times a day instead of morning and evening. I also made sure the shower was luke warm water.
It is easy to slip and take those hot showers again.

Moisturization and hydration is very important. You will need to experiment with different products as I found that when I used moisturizers with alcohol that my skin didn’t do well. Also the sun can be a mixed blessing. I know that for myself, I need to limit myself for an hour and to use a good spf that has natural ingredients.

Drinking a lot of water is very important. When you are going through a bad phase of eczema, take water with you and sip on it all day. I found taking probiotics such as acidopholous helpful and I took a candida supplement from health food store. I continue to take this along with vitamin C to repair cells, a good multi-vitamin, mushrooms supplements, omega 3, calcium/magnesium and others such as bromelain, co q 10 and tumeric. I am not sure which are helping the most but don’t want to experiment at the moment.

Right now I am not using cortisone creams. When I had severe eczema I used a few cortisone creams but you need to be careful with these. They thin skin and don’t use on a child’s face. If you are pregnant, ask your doctor about this as some don’t approve.

A few readers of this blog recommended this woman’s natural approach to treating eczema. She speaks about taking safflower oil internally, using virgin coconut oil on your skin and all natural methods. She claims that she’s found a cure to her own chronic eczema and it goes beyond relief that is temporary. It is by getting at root of problem and it’s a nutritional approach. I know I am taking probably more supplements than I need, but am not sure which to eliminate it so will checking out her advice myself to save some money and giving a review of Susan’s method at Cure Your Eczema Now

Since writing this originally I have had a chance to review this and I have written a review here: Beat Eczema Review . A few other readers of the blog have e-mailed me with positive feedback so it sounds very promising.

  1. I think diet does play more into my eczema flare-ups then I am willing to admit. I was at my friend’s house for a few days who is a vegetarian and my skin was very good because she also doesn’t eat eggs or dairy. The food was good too and didn’t taste like wilted lettuce salads. IF this is important for a cure for eczema then I think I can make some changes to get rid of eczema for good.

  2. I read a women’s magazine that mentioned for baby eczema coconut oil is quite soothing. I know they say if your child has allergies or asthma it can also be related to an eczema skin condition. I know atopic exzema is a problem for my cousin’s kid who’s 4.
