Hi,

I get eczema as well especially since I am an allergy sufferer. And I know first hand about the dark spots. One natural product that I’ve started to use is called OPC-3. It’s a natural antioxidant that works for so many things including eczema, allergies, pain, etc. To read more about OPC-3 and it’s benefits, visit my website at http://www.mucusstomachpain.com/opc-3.html where I talk more about the benefits. If you’re interested in purchasing this product, visit my website at http://www.isotonix.com/livewellalways It has helped my skin tremendously by clearing up the spots. I hope this helps you.

What are some good cosmetic products for these problems?

I have severe eczema all over my hands. I tend to wash my hands often in hot water, and they become super itchy, irritated, and dry. I have tried several lotions but none seem to soothe my skin. Can you recommend any good products for this? Or should I visit a dermatologist? I also need some tips on how to get a milky white skin tone similar to k pop stars. Are there any good face masks, creams, cleansers, or tricks? Even foods, I should know about like avocado or yams? I also would appreciate it if you could recommend some good hair shampoos and conditioners. Thanks!

admin answers:

First a dermatologist could be of good help, so you should see one just in case. I used to have eczema on my legs and it went away after using prescribed creams. At home, use avocado and honey masks for about 15mins, twice a week. Also, soak your hands in warm water with oatmeal. That helps a TON with dryness and itchyness. For a safe shampoo and conditioner, go online and look for the Pro Naturals argan oil shampoo, it’s organic and won’t cause irritation since you have to use your hands to apply it to your hair.

Why does my hand follow in this kind of weather?

Why does my hand follow in this kind of weather excuse me same meeting is dry in in the winter desquamate, some are aglow , and painful. The the right-hand side is more serious than left hand.

admin answers:

I think you may have eczema. I had really bad eczema when cold weather came and it so soo itchy. Just apply lots of lotion and do not itch it! It takes about 1-2 weeks to go away if you don’t itch it. Then one winter comes put lotion on your hands every night

Sandra asks…

How much sun exposure is too much for someone with eczema?

I’ve overcome most of my eczema and there is some discoloration around my mouth and on my hand. I also play tennis and I play tennis outside for 3 hours 6 days a week. The sun and temperature will slowly die down during September-October. My mom is “worried” that I’ll get skin cancer and my eczema will flare up again and is threatening to kick me out of my tennis team for high school. But I moisturize 2 times a day, apply sun screen multiple times during tennis and stay hydrated. But I still look way more tanner and my white patch around my mouth is more visible. I’m not sure what to do because I don’t want to leave the only sport I’m good at and if there are any links to articles about sun exposure and eczema I would really appreciate it 🙂

Help i have a serious case of hand eczema (its long but please read)?

I hate it. I had it since I was in 5th grade (I am now a freshman in college) . It gets so bad that I get blisters and painful cracks on my skin. The only time it goes for a long period of time without starting up is in the winter. It gets sooooo bad in the summer. My hands look like they have aged 5 decades and I’m only 18. Im setting up a doctors appointment tomorrow but i havent been to one in a long time. I haven’t been to one because they give me the same stuff hydrocortizone 2%. It works for some time but it starts right back. Even though its a physical condition it affects me more emotionally. It also doesn’t help that I live in Tennessee and that I have dermatographia (a skin condition. When people who have dermatographia lightly scratch their skin, the scratches redden into a raised wheal similar to hives. These marks usually disappear within 30 min. Simple things can trigger dermatographia. For ex, rubbing from your clothes or bedsheets may irritate your skin, an infection, emotional upset or medications.) I have tried so many home remedies and store bought stuff but nothing seems to work. It seems that if I keep on taking vitamins that are suppose to help it only makes it worse. I seriously need help. If you have any tips please tell me and thank you.

This is my standard patient leaflet. The steroids make it worse. 5th grade?? Is that 12 years old? And a freshman is ?? 19? You don’t say if you are a boy or a girl, but this is for both genders, a hormonal change which allows Candida to morph. It is more likely to be Candida than anything else if you have had it continuously, rather than seasonally in which case it is a seasonally blooming mold.
Duke University, somewhere in the Southern USA, was one of a few unis that trialled Toctino, which is available in Canada, but only via clinical trial in the USA.
Please PM me with answers to the questions.

7.Dyshidrosis. (pomphylox, the id reaction, chronic hand eczema, dyshidrotic eczema) Google images and dermnet.nz …… Does it look like this?
It is allergy to a dermatophyte, which is any kind of skin loving ‘bug’. Mold, yeast, bacteria, virus, parasite, pollen. It could be anywhere on or in your body. The rash on the hands(or feet) is just a red flag. Take anti-histamines for immediate relief. Fexofenadine 180mg, and 8 hours later 60mg, then every 8 hours 60mg. (Allegra to Americans and Sanofi-Aventis give out samples if you ask nicely) This is not the cure. But it will stop the itching. Go to dyshidrosis@yahoogroups for more information. Http//dyshidrosis.co.uk (my website).

This condition is your immune system over-reacting to the presence of a dermatophyte.
The most common dermatophyte is Candida in its dimorphic, mycelial form in the intestines. Which is often diagnosed as Irritable Bowel Syndrome. (IBS)
The cure is really simple, but I very much doubt you can get your doctor to prescribe it for you.
You need a two week course of NYSTATIN by drops, 2 million units daily. That is 5 drops 4 times a day: then a 2 week break, then repeat. If this does not work (and I would bet the cost of your doctor visit it does.) you need a drug called Toctino, to be taken for 90 days. This is expensive, and not great for your liver, you will find a cheaper way on the links at dyshidrosis@yahoogroups.com.
I am studying this condition, also called the ‘Id reaction”. Can I ask you to tell your doctor to refer to page 651, chapter 17 in the 1st volume of the Textbook of Dermatology by Rook, Wilkingson and Ebling.?
You have to realize this is NOT contact dermatitis, and it is not eczema This is a special sort of allergy, and must NOT be treated with steroids and cortisone creams and injection at all. This makes it spread..
All the creams you put on your hand will do nothing for the cure of the condition, but soaking your hand in warm water and vinegar will neutralize the histamine and give you a couple of days relief from itching until the histamine builds up again. Neuragena Norwegian Formula glycerine cream under cotton gloves at night is the least irritant.
Some people find bleach baths help, same applies, neutralizes histamine. But also reduces the fungal load on the skin, and if your dyshidrosis is caused by a seasonal airbourne mold, this is the best treatment.

Podiatrists see a lot more of this condition in response to Tinea, which is athlete’s foot. MD doctors have only out of date treatments and it is a dogma that steroids will take down the inflammation. True, but they cause the spread to new histamine receptors. In fact, it is my theory that steroid/hormonal changes, ie puberty, the pill, pregnancy and pumping iron and the peri menopause which are all hormonal/steroid changes are the inciting cause for the yeast Candida Albicans to morph into the opportunistic pathogen of the mycelia form. This is why it is not detected on allergy tests. Everybody has Candida, but not everybody has candidiasis. Only the mycelial form of Candida seems to cause the major histamine reaction which is Dyshidrosis

Patient Questions:
Do you have any symptoms of IBS?
Do you have athlete’s foot? Ringworm? Any persistent fungal or bacterial infection?

Are you on the Pill? (or HRT)
Did you take a course of steroids or antibiotics at about the time the condition started? (prescribed or not…)

Thinking back to when this started: Did you move to a new house? Area? Or a new job? Was it moldy?

Were you trying to get pregnant? Pregnant? Just been pregnant? Breastfeeding?

Thinking back to when this started: did you have a stomach upset that persisted, did you suddenly become ‘intolerant’ to food that had previously not caused you any problems.

Can you add any information about the starting point of the condition? (Hospitalized, new relationship, rash, holiday, stress)
