Your Questions About Eczema

Betty asks…

Hand Eczema itching is driving me crazy?

I have the worse case of hand eczema. I have had it for over a year. My hands are never cleared up, but sometimes they are worse. Today they have been worse. They itch so bad I can’t stand it. Does anybody know how I can get the itching to stop. The dry cracking and paper like cuts are bad enough, but it is the itching that is driving me crazy.

admin answers:

Expresschemist co uk has some pictures of people that were healed of severe hand eczema
with a product called Salcura Dermaspray Intensive.
We used salcura Dermaspray Gentle on our child, and it was 10 times more effective than all other eczema products we tried. It stopped our child’s itching seconds after spraying his skin and healed his inflamed damaged skin rapidly.

Donald asks…

What do I do with a gentle skin cleanser?

Last week I went to the dermatologist who gave me a bunch of product samples that I could use to help my skin affected by eczema. One of them was a bottle of cetaphil gentle skin cleanser, it’s not like a lotion or cream but It comes out like a watery formula and dissolves kind of like hand sanitizers. What do I do with a cleanser?

admin answers:

Cetaphil is a great product. If you have the skin cleanser though, you might want to go out and buy the facial cleanser when you run out.

After wetting your face, take a quarter-sized amount in your wet hands and massage it into your face. Rinse it off with cold water and pat your face dry with a towel.

Ken asks…

I worry that I scratch my eczema in my sleep, could I be unconsciously scratching in my sleep?

I don’t know if people scratch when asleep or if that part of them shuts down. Scratching my bad skin can keep me awake and stop me getting to sleep but whilst asleep I’d like to know that I am not making it worse.

admin answers:

I scratch in my sleep too. Sometimes I wake up with ugly bloody scars that are very painful and take a lot of time to heal. What I do before I go to bed is take some benadryl and try to wear clothing on the parts that itch. For example, if my thighs get itchy, I wear sleeper pants when I sleep. If my arms get itchy, I wear a long sleeve shirt. If my hands are itchy, I try to wear socks over them, but that doesn’t always work. You can keep your nails cut short too. If you are sleeping and you itch, at least when your hands scratch, it will just be the tips of your fingers itching it and not nails. I highly recommend taking benadryl at night and finding a antihistamine that wont make you drowsy during the day 🙂

Thomas asks…

How can I get rid of this acne?

I had 2 pimples on my chin and while at school I forgot that they were there and rested my chin on my hand. I think I pressed down on them and now they are really hard to get rid of. I used witch hazel to clean my face regularly and it gets rid of my other pimples, but it does nothing to the ones on my chin. What can I do to get rid of them at home?

admin answers:

Stress can affect hormones and can theoretically promote acne. I try to do natural home remedies but here are some helpful tips that might be helpful for acne and scar:
1) Tea Tree Oil
2) Lemon oil or juice
3) Mandarin oil
4) Cedar wood – good for eczema
5) Lavender
6) Apple cider vinegar
7) Bamboo extract or Sarna lotion – good for rosacea, psoriasis, eczema
8) Bio Oil or BB cream for dark spots or scars
9) Toothpaste is very effective for acne leave on face for about 20 to 30 minutes then wash.
10) Zinc really works on acne
11) 2% Erythromycin
12) Benzoin Peroxide

Applied lemon juice or apple cider vinegar to face or you can drink it through using it in water a few drops a day. Will help with both acne, and scars as well. Another way you can get rid of acne is by taking bamboo extract something I started when I had the problem really does work. Hope this works for you.

OR: Here are other methods to clear up blemishes.

Tea-Tree Oil
Tea tree oil is a popular home remedy for acne. An essential oil is diluted and applied topically to acne lesions. How is tea tree oil believed to work? Tea tree oil contains a constituent called terpinen-4-ol that’s thought to be responsible for most of tea tree oil’s anti-bacterial activity. Because tea tree oil can kill bacteria, applying topical tea tree oil to acne lesions is believed to kill Propionibacterium acnes, the skin-dwelling bacteria involved in acne. To treat mild, and occasional breakouts. This is how it works: Distilled from the leaves of an Australian shrub, tea-tree oil contains antibacterial and anti-microbial compounds called terpenoids that help kill the bacteria that, when trapped behind oil in a plugged pore, lead to acne breakouts. Try Burt’s Bees Herbal Blemish Stick ($8, burtsbees.com). A roller-ball tube makes for easy application. Studies testing tea-tree oil against the gold-standard acne treatment, benzoyl peroxide, have shown that while the latter works more quickly, tea-tree oil is equally effective over time. And it results in fewer annoying side effects—namely, dryness and redness.

Sulfur
If you have sensitive skin.
How it works: A time-tested, gentle acne fighter, sulfur “acts like a sponge to draw oil out of blocked pores,”. This dries up pimples and keeps sebum production in check, helping to prevent future blemishes. Sulfur has a distinct smell—think rotten eggs. Most preparations that use it contain a masking fragrance. However, to play it safe (and avoid scaring off coworkers), apply these products at night.

Salicylic Acid
To treat and soothe red, inflamed blemishes. Salicylic acid can have a calming, anti-inflammatory effect on pimples. “It also breaks down the ‘cement’ between cells in clogged pores to help unplug them,”
Salicylic acid is less irritating than more potent treatments, so it may be better for those with dry skin. It also tends to work well on stubborn blackheads.

Retinoid
Nightly to prevent breakouts.
How they work: Retinoid, which include over-the-counter retinol and prescription-strength Retin-A, reduce acne by altering the oil chemistry on the skin. “They help stop dense sebum from getting stuck within the pores,” says Gross. Without oil deposits, bacteria can’t grow and cause blemishes. Since retinoid can make skin sensitive to the sun, doctors recommend using them at night (and being diligent about wearing sunscreen during the day). To avoid irritation, apply every other evening to start, gradually working up to nightly use. Bonus benefit: Retinoid have been shown to increase collagen production and plump fine lines, making them a good choice if you’re dealing with acne and wrinkles.
