Your Questions About Eczema

Sandy asks…

I need a solution for my dyshidrotic eczema?

I was Diagnosed with dyshidrotic eczema on my hands 5 years ago, about the time I started culinary school. I have a prescription for coal tar ointment which I am supposed to put on my hands underneath cotton gloves every night while I sleep. It had always worked until recently. I used to do the treatment for a week and the eczema would disappear for at-least a month. The last few times I have put the ointment on my hands I wake up with many more clusters of bubbles, and they are much more painful than before. I takes about a 3 month wait to get in to see my dermatologist so that is no help right now.

I cook for a living so not washing my hands is out of the question. I have to wash nearly once every 10 minutes minimum for 8 hours. It is impossible for my to put cream on my hands every time I wash them. Does anyone know any other solutions? Or possibly a soap that would be less damaging?

admin answers:

Hi, the problem with many prescription hand eczema solutions is they tend to dry out the hands, and in the long term this can make the situation worse because the natural oils which are supposed to protect your hands are stripped away.

Obviously washing them to often just increases the problem. Dry skin is a breeding ground for eczema, so the key is to keep the skin as moist as possible. With your job, it’s easy to see why this is a big problem.

Your best option would be to use something that can keep your hands moist for longer and prevent dry skin appearing on your hands.

Because there is no medical cure for eczema on hands or any other type of eczema, a lot of people have started using natural eczema remedies, and they can often make a real difference. You should try natural oils like coconut oil to keep you hand eczema under control. Just follow the same principles that you are following now at night, but use coconut oil instead of what you are using now.

Before applying it, just put your hands in some warm water for a few seconds. This opens up the pores of your skin and allows the oil to penetrate deeper into the skin, keeping it moist for longer.

There area lot of natural eczema on hands treatments out there. You can find more information at the resource below. I hope this helps, good luck!

Lisa asks…

eczema on my legs, is it already too late?

I have a case of ezcema all over my legs, its really noticable. I havent really care for some reason all my life till now. I really want to do something about it, cause its driving me crazy, I just want regular smooth skin. but im 22 already. If I start with treatment now will there be any difference, it seems likes it part of my skin color now, is it already too late to really change anything since i have waited this long un-treated. what good stuff is out there that would help.

admin answers:

There really are no medications that can help very well. This first thing to do is get checked for allergies and stay away from anything you may be allergic too. The change your diet and eat fish a few times a week. Then make a cream using Tea tree oil and jojoba oil and vitamen e oil. Keep your skin well moisterised with this and that will help very well.

Paul asks…

Does anyone know of any home treatments that work to stop eczema from coming back?

I am 24 years old and just recently had a very severe case of eczema. I had it growing up, but nothing was as bad as the last few months. I had open sores on my legs and elbows, upper back from stratching ( which I know I shouldnt have done ). I have got some kind of shot to help clear it up, then two different creams then a pill AND my dermatolist also put me on prozac I guess to calm me down and not stress about it. For the most part is has cleared up but I want to know some home treatments, good creams, soaps, detergents…I can use that will help NOT make myself have another flare up.
I read online that NOXEMA can help…if that is true how does a facial cleaner help me skin on my body???

admin answers:

1. Buy a humidifier for your room and keep it on all day.
2. Gently rinse the affected area twice a day with gentle and mild bar soap.
3. Apply Aquaphor (find it at any drugstore or grocery store) on the affected area often.
Doing this for a week cleared mine up. Good luck!

Ken asks…

Natural remedies for hand eczema?

I have hand eczema really bad. I have been on many medications (cortisols and anything the dr thinks will help) but nothing seems to be working and I’m beginning to become iffy about putting so many chemicals into my body. Anyways, does anyone have any suggestions or treatments that they have tried that are more on the natural side of things?

admin answers:

Hi, you can try one of the natural treatments available on the Internet – some of them do work. For my eczema I use herbal cream by Champori quite successfully. It takes just a couple of weeks to clear the spots and then they stay clear for months on end.
Try it: Champori doesn’t need a prescription and comes with money back guarantee so if it doesn’t work for you – it’s free.

Joseph asks…

REALLY need treatment without a doctor???

I have moderate-severe eczema. I have had it for about 10 years now. My doctor used to give me REALLY good skin cream that worked, but I can’t afford the doctor right now. Does anyone know of a home treatment that might work? Lotion and anti cortisone cream don’t work 🙁 Already tried those. Any serious tips would be great. THANKS 😀

admin answers:

The main cause of eczema is overreaction of the immune system. Identifying certain foods, chemicals, etc can be very helpful in battling this disease. I try to avoid soy and milk products which trigger my flare-ups.
After using number of prescription drugs I’ve turned to the natural treatments.
Now I use herbal remedies from, which aim at the root of the disease – the immune system, and are steroid-free.
After about 2 weeks of using ointment and spray my skin has been cleared up and now I just continue with anti-eczema extract, which controls the immune system. My skin has been clear for months now.
It is the only treatment I have found that provides me complete relief when I use it as directed.
