Your Questions About Eczema

Lizzie asks…

How to get rid of oily face?

I’m 15 male, and I used to have eczema but it has gone and not come back for a long time. Throughout the day my face seems to get oilier, so sometimes I don’t put this steroid moisturising cream I was given ages ago, but then my face just becomes really dry and ashy with white dry skin. I want to get rid of the oily skin but i need to moisturise to and need a product which does both without affecting my eczema. What product can i use, and how else can I make my skin less oily?

admin answers:

Listen up Justine, you’ll never beat that eczema. I am 64yrs old, had it since I was 12yrs old and all the lotions and potions in the world don’t cure it for good. All you can do is use products to reduce the impact. There is a product called ‘Doublebase’ which I am using right now and to date, it’s the second best I’ve come across. You can get it on prescription. The best I use is a body oil I got from an alternative therapist, it’s based upon almond oil with an added ingredient, the name of which escapes me. Go see a homeothapist and they will put you right.

Why do i get loads of pimples/spots after having clear skin?

Why is it that for a few weeks i have really clear skin, then all of a sudden I wake up with loads of spots and pimples on my face. It’s not severe and I wouldn’t call it acne, just teenage spottiness.

But why does it happen like this?? Also, does anyone have any tips for keeping skin really clear? I do the usual cleanse routine, but is there anything else I can do?

Thanks for reading! Please help! 😀

How can I get off my pimples on my face?

I putting cream for almost 2 month but I still doesn’t change

What will I do?

admin answers:

I’m so sorry to hear what your going through..You are NOT alone, I have been suffering from very bad acne since the age of 10, I not only have it on my face but also on my back and arms. If you have a regular dermatologist I strongly suggest you change him/her. I have gone to doctor after doctor who have prescribed a load of junk that never worked, I get so upset that people think that doctors are God and their word is always right, no, most doctors today are in it just for the money and want a quick fix by prescribing you harmful RX drugs like Accutane. What you have to do first is stop touching the acne if you are, this was VERY hard for me and took almost two years of hard work and self discipline. The fact is when you touch or pop the acne it drives bacteria even deeper into your pores, spreads the acne and causes scars. For every one pimple you touch two form. I DO NOT recommend you see a regular Dermatologist but rather a Homeopathic doctor, which is a doctor that treats people without harmful pills or chemicals (RX drugs are VERY bad for our bodies and in the long run cause cancer). There is no one cause of acne, its a combination of many things, I strongly think it is a combination of hormones, meaning you are going through puberty or a hormonal imbalance, genes, if your parents have it and your environment, also please don’t think because you’re older you can’t have acne, this is the biggest misconception people have, ANYONE can get acne because acne is not just cause by hormones. Heres what I did and I want you to do:

1.) Stop picking at the acne if you have trouble join this great support group that helped

2.) See a Homeopathic doctor (if you can)

3.) Get a test for your hormones, you might have a imbalance like high Testosterone if your female or high Progesterone if your male which most certainly causes acne and body acne and I was diagnosed NOT take the first answer, get multiple tests took me three tests to find my premonitions right.

4.) Start eating 100% ALL ORGANIC food, the food in our grocery stores is packed full of chemicals which cause obesity, cancer, acne and so many other conditions. The FDA did not want people to know this since they make WAY too much money off selling drugs but the good thing is people just now are catching on to this and there is organic foods available in stores now.

5.) Start using ALL NATURAL body washes, shampoos and is rare to find them in stores, many are misleading by saying “natural” when in fact they are still packed full of chemicals but many stores on the internet have them, I order mine off ebay, type in “100% organic soap”, if you are young and do not have a credit card you can send a Money Order on ebay. The soaps you are using now have over 1000 harmful ingredients and any ONE could be causing your allergy’s and acne.

6.) Buy PURE UNREFINED Shea Butter which clears scarring and alleviates dryness, this is such a great cure, make sure its organic and unrefined though.

7.) Use soaps with Tea Tree, Chamomile, Lavender..all three are proven natural skin healers for centuries, especially the Tea Tree, Proactiv, the highly priced and commercialized product is nothing more than Tea Tree oil and the harmful chemical Benzol Peroxide (DO NOT USE dries your skin and causes premature aging and wrinkles in the long run)

8.) Exercise and drink LOTS of filtered, clean detoxifies your system and clears your body of all the chemicals you have been exposed to for all the years you have been alive.

9.) Don’t wear tight clothing, this causes oils to get trapped into your pores which causes acne..wear loose fitting, synthetic fiber clothes at home.

10.) Get a good organic sea salt scrub that will help buff off dead skin cells.

If you follow all this I GUARANTEE you you will be cured of acne, eczema or any other skin diseases. Good Luck!

Sandra asks…

What can I do about baby acne and ehat is the difference between baby acne and eczema?

I have a 3 & a half week old baby boy and he has what looks like baby acne on both of his cheeks and I’m worried it may be hurting him. It doesn’t seem like its bothering him but i’m not sure if its eczema or acne & I don’t know what to do about it. I heard breast feeding may cause this due to hormones and stuff but I stopped breastfeeding at 2 weeks and started using formula so I’m not sure if that’s what it is. Anyone know of any cures for this? I’m worried and we have professional pictures coming up soon and I don’t want his poor face all red for those 🙁

admin answers:

If its baby acne, it usually caused by Left Over Hormones from the mother that are passed onto baby during pregnancy
Do nothing.
It’ll clear up on its own.

Eczema will be patches of especially dry, red, maybe itchy skin.
Some possible causes:

•Breastfeeding exclusively for at least four months may help to protect against eczema and other allergies. The Department of Health recommends exclusive breastfeeding for six months.
•Some children who develop eczema may be allergic to cow’s milk but it’s important to talk to your doctor before removing cow’s milk (or cow’s milk formula) from your child’s diet. If your child is formula fed your doctor may recommend a trial of a hydrolysed protein formula. Soya-based formulas and goats’ milk formula are not recommended.

Mandy asks…

Feel so depressed because of bad eczema and feel there is no other options?

I’m 19 years old and I’ve had eczema all my life, the past year it’s got pretty bad. I feel like I’ve tried everything, steroid creams, anti biotics for infection, antihistamines, body wraps, moisturising three times a day, cutting nails short, sleeping with gloves on, even sunbeds because the uv is supposed to help but nothing works. I go to a dermatologist also and they don’t seem to help. My skin is out of control, constant infections and flare ups on my face, neck, breasts, stomach arms and legs. I’m literally covered head to toe even my scalp. It gets me so down to the point where I don’t want to go out. My friends go out showing they’re legs and I’m so envious of their clear skin, mine feels so ugly and everyone stares and constantly asks what’s wrong with my skin. I’m covered in noticeable scars which I hate. I know there’s so many conditions and diseases that I could have that are much worse but I feel nobody understands, I can’t bare to be hugged because everywhere stings constantly, sometimes I don’t sleep at all during the night sometimes because of the scratching and pain then get up for college the next day with no sleep at all, it’s affecting my studies and my social life so much, my confidence is rock bottom. My question is, is there a miracle cure ? Is there anything that has helped you with your skin ? Is there any more options I don’t know about ?

admin answers:

I am sorry to say that there is not any miracle cure for Eczema. You do need to apply emollient creams. Use these after a bath or shower as they help to lock moisture in the skin. Some are better than others, Aveeno is a good one, it is a little more expensive than some. But it does not contain a product called lanolin, whereas some others do, some people’s skin reacts to lanolin, so I would avoid those products. When you apply an emollient to the skin stroke it in the skin in the direction of hair growth do not rub it in vigorously and allow time for it to soak in I am sure that you already know to avoid fragranced creams and soap and not to use make up, all of which can make your eczema worse.

When you wash your cloths avoid fabric conditioners and also avoid biological washing powders as they is are known triggers with some people, and can make matters worse. Use something like ‘Simply’ Washing products which you can get from the supermarkets. Where rubber gloves when washing up. Avoid extreme temperatures and wear cotton clothing, avoiding man made fibres. You can buy a bath or shower emollient yourself from behind the pharmacy counter, one decent one is called doublebase again not really cheap but it is available on prescription if it helps. You just put some in the bath and it coats your skin evenly moisturising and softens the skin.
