Your Questions About Eczema

Mandy asks…

My skin peeled after using Retin-A and its really red, how do i reduce/prevent irritation?

It seems like anything I put on it makes it sting (including lotion).

Except if I wash it with the Axe body wash with 2% salicylic acid.

However it makes it really dry and flaky, what can I do to not irritate the new skin? How long will it take for the color of the new skin even out?

Hi ChemStump

Here are some real answers on skin conditions. Remedies at the bottom. Cleansing the body of toxins is the key. Especially a colon cleanse! Educate yourself on detoxifying the blood.

Judyth Reichenberg-Ullman N.D. – “What is your skin trying to tell you? Often the skin is a metaphor for deeper issues and a way for your body to send up a red flag to warn you that all is not well underneath. When our skin is unhealthy it is usually a reflection of the internal state of our bodies, and is often a sign of poor elimination of toxins and waste products. Most of us are embarrassed by skin problems such as rashes, rosacea, boils or acne, especially in places where others can see our imperfections. The skin is the body’s first line of defense against the environment. It has to deal with the effects of weather, sun , cold, heat, dryness, humidity, scrapes, bumps, soaps, detergents, chemicals, perspiration and dirt of all kinds. It is a wonder that our skin stays healthy most of the time! We can help our skin deal with this onslaught by optimizing our general health and by protecting our skin from harsh environmental exposure. Western medicine generally treats skin eruptions with either antibiotics, cortisone, or antifungal preparations. These medicines may alleviate the skin problem temporarily, or occasionally for good, but do not address the source of the problem. Putting a lid on skin symptoms without getting to the root of the imbalance may even result in suppression, that means the imbalance may be driven deeper causing more serious health problems later without ever strengthening the underlying vital force of the person. Fortunately, naturopathic medicine offers a wide vareity of effective treatments for skin problems.”

Judyth Reichenberg-Ullman N.D. – “Your skin is a reflection of how well your body is eliminating the toxins that build up on a daily basis. Chronic skin conditions such as acne, eczema and psoriasis stem from a combination of genetic factors, immune stress, dietary deficiencies or sensitivities, and the accumulation of toxins in the body. For our skin to be radiant and clear, it is very important that the other organs of elimination (kidneys, liver, lungs, and colon) are cleansing the body effectively. If not, the skin will be overtaxed, pores will become clogged, and eruptions of one sort or another will result. Here are a number of steps you can take to improve your body’s overall elimination wtih specific emphasis on your skin.”

Detoxification is a normal body process of eliminating or neutralizing toxins through the colon, liver, kidneys, lungs, lymph and skin. Juice Fasting is the world’s most ancient and natural healing mechanism. Fasting triggers a truly wondrous cleansing process that reaches right down to each and every cell and tissue in the body.

Learn more about Therapeutic Fasting and Detoxification – Colon Cleansing is the main step. Must remove the toxins from the colon, so the toxins dont get in the blood and cause illness and disease.

Natural Cures

1. Fruits and Vegetables for Acne: Carrot & spinach, celery & watercress, grapefruit juices are all useful to combat acne.

2. Unwholesome Foods: Acne, a prevalent problem among teen-aged boys would not be possible in our society if our foods were wholesome. A most sad and disgusting sight is the pus-filled pimples due to inner toxicity — wastes trying desperately to escape through the face. This condition often turns a gentle face in the blossom of youth into a waste dump of pimples, pus and subsequent pock marks which can be prevented. The tons of acne medications and prescriptions sold annually act only on the effect of the harmful food, and not the cause of the disease, malnutrition. The traditional teenage meal, a grease burger, french fries and a milk shake or cola simply does not provide enough nourishment for anyone, let alone a boy going through puberty to adulthood. Our highly processed foods are devoid of hormones found in fresh fruits, vegetables, grains, nuts and seeds. Must do a colon cleanse to rid of all the toxins in the body, which eventually get into the blood and cause acne and all other diseases.

3. Cabbage: Apply a lotion of freshly prepared cabbage juice preceded, if desired, by the application of leaves. The eating of cabbage leaves or juice is also helpful.

4. Lemon Juice: Skin problems such as acne… Will often respond to a treatment of lemon juice. For blackheads rub lemon juice over them each night.

5. Black Walnut: Externally, Black Walnut is nearly a miracle worker in cases of …acne, dandruff, boils, itch, shingles, ringworm–we could go on, but you can see that you can use Black Walnut whenever a skin disorder appears! The tincture is an excellent first-aid remedy for wounds.

Best of health to you

Sharon asks…

Which product would work for an itchy scalp?

Ive tryed head and shoulders but it still itches. I dont have lice , ive had my mom cheak several times. Should i switch my shampoo every other day ?
I also wash my hair ever 2nd day.

admin answers:

You should look into the skin disorder eczema, I have eczema and it itches terribly. I have it on my arms and legs, sometimes my neck. Eczema and asthma are closely related. If you have asthma, most likely you also have eczema. They go Hand in Hand. The reason they are so closely related is because they’re both caused by an unusually clean environment. It’s a good idea to wash your sheets at least once a week. There is no known cure for eczema, but you can try hydrocortisone. You can go to walgreens, walmart, basically any store that sells cortizone. I would not recommend Aveeno, as it can cause burning and make you scratch more. First I would see a doctor and ask if you have eczema, most likely if you have asthma, this is the case. You can also get prescriptions. Good luck!

Those of us who suffer from acne has usually been given 2 choices and neither of them work:

1. Over the counter remedies such as cleansers, creams, ointments, etc. These things have been proven over and over again not to work. Why? It does not address the root cause of the problem.

2. Go see a doctor and or dermatologist. They will generally prescribe prescription drugs which include topicals and or antibiotics. This, too, has been proven over and over again not to work. Why? It does not address the root cause of the problem.

Hope this works!!!!

-can you give me a water plan you have used that has worked?

admin answers:

Oh the ignorance of these other answers <3

Let me take you about 3 years back to January 5th, 2007. This is the day that I found out that I had Acute Leukemia. I was 15 years old.

I've always been big into nutrition. Ever since I was about 8, I've felt that the human body is amazing and wanted to know everything it's capable of.

I remembered reading somewhere about cases of cancer patients unintentionally fasting because they were too weak to eat, and because of it, diminishing their trace of abnormal cancer cells. Patients had been put on intentional water fasts and almost all of them had been completely cured. The others saw a dramatic improvement but their cancer was too severe for the body to completely repair itself.

Anyways, almost immediately I started a fast. Water. Nothing else. No toothpaste, no nail bitings, NOTHING that could be ingested and disrupt the "detox" or repairing properties of a fast.

The first two days were full of tummy grumbles. I had IBS so I got nauseous from my stomach acids jumping around in there lol.

Before I go any further, my doctor highly disproved of water fasting for longer than 3 days. But I expected that. In my opinion, anyone working for the government is after money, not your safety or general well-being.

For the first 10 days, I did enemas each morning to help with the "detoxing" of my liver and shizzzz. I hate the insertion part, but everything following it is great lol.

After day 3, my tummy grumbles stopped completely.

Side Note: I drank like 200 oz. Of water a day. It's NOT necessary. Again: Tons of water is NOT necessary. Get in your 6-8 cups and you're good. However, I do suggest a bottle of SmartWater every other day to replenish electrolytes (the biggest concern people have with long-term fasting.)

On days 10-18, I broke up in pimples. Cute, right? But it's a detox symptom. Your body rids itself of "toxins" through sweat, urine/fecal matter and through the skin in the form of acne.

Days 19-42 were easy. I got a colonic on day 34, 35, 38 and 39. That in itself caused a weight loss of 12 pounds.

On day 43, I broke my water fast with 4 oz. Of organic diluted carrot juice.

If you're wondering about weight, I lost 56 pounds, putting me at 104 pounds, standing 5'5.

I have not gained any weight back because I've eating properly.

On to the medical reason for fasting… I told my Oncologist what I did and he was not happy. I told him that I'd felt more energized and alert and I was in virtually no pain as opposed to the constant aching I'd experienced before the fast.

He did my blood work. A few EKG's and your average "check-up" things like blood pressure at that visit. About a week later, I got a call asking me to come into his office because he wanted to talk to me.

Scared out of my mind that I'd been the "exception" to cures and fasting, and had actually FURTHERED my Leukemia, tried to remain calm.

I went into his office expecting to be granted 2 months to live. He greeted me and my father with a smile and—long story short—he explained that there are NO signs that I ever had Leukemia, asthma, type 2 diabetes OR chronic eczema. He compared me to a clean slate. I had virtually NO medical conditions.

On top of this MIRACLE, ever since those acne detox symptoms passed on day 20, I no longer suffer from severe acne. I don't even break out. EVER. I have not had ONE zit in 3 years.

I was clinically depressed and suicidal. I haven't felt even remotely close to that in forever!

Fasting saved my life and I hate that it gets a bad rep.

I hope I shined some light on how amazing our bodies are <3

God bless you

PS: If you're truly interested in water fasting, I suggest "Fasting and Eating for Health" by Joel Fuhrman. It's the equivalent to the Bible for me.

Daniel asks…

Pus formation deep under the skin in palms and feet. Why does it happen? How to prevent it?

Pus formation deep under the skin in palms and feet specially after eating carbohydrates and sugar.
And what are the furthur complications from it?

admin answers:

Hello,

The skin of the soles and palms is a lot thicker than skin elsewhere, so tiny blisters under the skin tend to stay deep and not burst through onto the skin. They are tiny blisters of clear fluid to start with, but if they remain unburst they do tend to turn pus – sy, like you say.

The condition is usually called ‘Pompholyx eczema’ and there is no common name for it. Pronounced ” pom- foe – licks” and it is a distinct type of eczema. (In normal eczema, the blisters burst through onto the skin, and so are not seen except in the early stages).

This type of eczema is usually present symmetrically, that is to say right and left hands (feet) are equally affected.

The treatment and outlook is of the underlying eczema.

It is also called ‘dyshidrotic eczema’, pronounced “diss – hid- drott”’ – ick”. This word means wrongly (‘dys’-) watery (- hidrotic).

There is another similar, but different type called “Tinea pedis,” which is basically a fungus infection which has spread onto the sole of the foot, ‘Athlete’s Foot’ of the sole. Usually only one foot is affected (it is not symmetrical). The treatment for this is to kill off the fungus, and the outlook is much more for a final cure.

I have put some annotated references below.

Hope this is of some help. Belliger (retired UK GP)

Ruth asks…

What are the symptoms of Basil Cell Carcinoma?

I have a bump on my nose that my doctor thinks is growing and she says it might be basil cell carcinoma. I am looking for a dermatologist to consult with but am wondering if anyone out there knows about these things and also have you ever heard of the morhs (? spelling) treatment? Thank you for any help.

admin answers:

Symptoms of Basal Cell Carcinoma
The five most typical characteristics of basal cell carcinoma are quite different from each other. Frequently, two or more features are present in one tumor. In addition, basal cell carcinoma sometimes resembles non-cancerous skin conditions, such as psoriasis or eczema. Only a trained physician, usually a dermatologist, can diagnose this cancer.
It is advisable to learn the signs of basal cell carcinoma and examine the body regularly, as often as once a month, if at high risk. A full-length mirror and a hand-held mirror can be very useful for the less visible parts of the body. The five warning signs of basal cell carcinoma are:

Sandra asks…

Is their an herbal cure for everything?

I hope so , I think modern medicine does more bad than good.

admin answers:

I agree with you about modern medicine

BUT…herbal treatments can be equally as dangerous. And unless you buy from a reputable source there can be drugs concealed in herbal products. I am not joking; some herbal eczema creams were tested to contain steroids.

I do think natural is the answer but better still PREVENTION!

Finding a natural way to supplementing your diet is the key as its deficiencies that trigger certain diseases.
