Cures for Eczema?
January 30, 2017 9:43AM
Anything from changing weather conditioners to dish detergents and clothing fabrics can aggravate your Eczema. If you are susceptible to Eczema, avoid wearing wool or rough fabrics. These fabrics will only irritate your dry, itchy skin even more so, causing the clothing to rub and scrap your skin. The best product that I found was an all-natural Eczema Hand & Foot Oil and Face Cream by Beauty 4 Ashes Christian Health & Beauty. It took me awhile to find this stuff;
There are virtually no all-natural Eczema products out there. All my life I had been taking prescribed medications, which are actually steroids. Unfortunately, steroids have the affect of harming your health and thinning your skin. As a result, I aged very quickly in my face and had tons of stretch marks. My recommendation, avoid prescribed medications.
As for the over-the counter stuff, you get what you pay for. Most over-the-counter products do more harm than good. If your Eczema is anything like mine, Cortisone 10, Cortaid, or Calamine Lotion, just are not enough. Moreover, most store products have chemical emulsifiers and preservatives that actually make the skin drier, such as Aveeno and Eucerin. They are temporary, ineffective solutions. Your best bet is to buy an all-natural cream or oil that contains Eczema healing essentials and herbs.
Also, consider getting an allergy test. Although having one done is sometimes cumbersome, and even a pain, you can discover what foods, animals, carpets, or even trees cause your Eczema flare-ups. I use to love going for a morning walk in a neighborhood filled with Cherry Blossoms. But, every time I went walking, I would ferociously itch to death. Well, it turns out, the Cherry Blossoms were the source of my pain. I also discovered I had an allergy to whole wheat and tomatoes. If you cant afford to have an allergy test done, consider keeping a journal. Keep a log of everything you eat, wear, and do on a particular day.
