To assist you in your en devour to manage your eczema I have added the below based on personal experience and others.
We know that eczema cannot be cured it can only be managed, regardless of what people say about that.

I have had a lot of feedback and even personal testimony of a series of applications of the right creams have helped many people experience a better life without having to worry about the constant interruption of scratching, redness and puffiness that many of us experience.

To get good results ensure that the below is followed:

  1. Cut fingernails regularly about twice week to ensure they are short.
  2. May seem silly but I tell you what, anything to stop you constantly scratching when your asleep.  Make sure you cover your hands at night using gloves to stop scratching and irritating the skin.
  3. Avoid woollen garments.
  4. Avoid all soaps. (detergents and cleaners).

Right lets get to the chase, below are a series of creams and method of application that will aid in your treatment of eczema.

  • Bath every day and put in 15ml QV oil and about 4 spoons of dissolved emulsifying ointment in hot water and bath your whole body for about 30mins in very warm water.
  • Pat dry only when you get out.
  • Depending on the severity of the eczema apply M-Mometasone ointment 0.1% to only limbs and body for severe cases, do not apply on face.
  • If mild apply Hydrocortisone cream 1% BPC to limbs, body and face
  • For hair scalp apply locoid crelo o.1%  cream and massage into scalp using cotton balls.
  • Before bed take Histafen 7.5ml which is an antihistamine
  • In the morning take Loraped 5ml which is an antihistamine
  • If eczema is infected to help treat it take 1 doxycycline antibotics tablet twice a day.

You should see a huge improvement in the next 2-3 weeks in terms of appearance and itchiness.

Best of luck!

TIP NUMBER SIX

You know a great remedy to help with eczema is swimming in the ocean, it must be something about the sea water that has a good affect on eczema.  If you are near the sea I recommend going swimming. The proof is in the results, what do you have to lose.
Apologies to those who live far away from the ocean.

TIP NUMBER FIVE

Eczema treatment using light has a huge advantage that can target large areas of skin without the side effects of oral or topical medications.
The individual is placed in a machine that emits UVA light directly over the affected area. Treatment usually takes 12 minutes and patients can keep coming back several times in a week.
Narrow band UVB rays are the most common form of phototherapy. The word narrow band refers to a specific wavelength of radiation so most of the time the patient is exposed to 311 nanometers of ultraviolet radiation.
The reason why it is the most common form aside from the fact that there are a lot of facilities that have it is the fact that your exposure time to the ultraviolet light is much shorter as well the course of treatment. It is more likely to clear your skin condition and you will enjoy a long remission period before it appears again.

TIP NUMBER FOUR

If your eczema is anything like mine, which flares up due to weather pattern changes. For example my eczema always flares up in Winter. As sure as the day when Winter comes around the eczema lets loose.
I’m no dermatologist but I know that when Winter rolls around its as if the moisture has been sucked right out of me.  I then know that I need to keep my skin constantly moisturized to stop it from itching.  If your skin is really dry then Leminis Fatty Cream can definitely help as a moisturizer due to its thick substance else a moisturizer with Beta cream base will do nicely.

The best time to apply these moisturizers would be straight after a shower or bath, only dab dry yourself with a towel (don’t rub) and apply moisturizers all over to seal in or help hold in any moisture.

TIP NUMBER THREE

Is there much stress in your life?
You may not realize this but stress can be the cause of your eczema breakouts without you even knowing.
It would be important to assess what areas of your life are stressing you out and make the required changes.  It maybe due to the type of employment you are in. If this is the case then you may need to talk to your boss regarding your situation and make some required changes to help your situation.

Whatever this stress is related to you need to make the right adjustments to help your life become more comfortable and bearable for you.

TIP NUMBER TWO

Are there any dairy product foods that you have in your diet? if so make a list of all them that you would have on a regular week, then write how often you have them each  day and how much.
Doing this will allow you to see if dairy food products are a triggering key factor to your eczema breakouts. Use this list to then identify what foods and at what times your eczema may breakout in the week.
You will then be able to then know what dairy products you may need to steer clear of, you may need to find yourself needing to use some other product alternative.

TIP NUMBER ONE

Identify what you may be allergic to that may be causing your eczema to flareup. A good starting point would be by first getting a skin allergy test or a patch test. You can ask your doctor that you would like one done.
This will at least tell you what substances, food, pollen, animal fur etc you maybe allergic to.

Stay tuned….

Eczema is a skin disorder and is one of those problems that has no cure and can return when irritated in any way. Having said this you cannot undergo eczema treatment without knowing first what caused it.

DIET

It is a possibility that what you eat can have a significant part to play in how your eczema may react. In fact, some people have complained of certain food allergies before the flare-ups occur.

STRESS

Stress has also been known to cause eczema because the body produces cortisol, a hormone that affects the intestinal tract by destroying friendly bacteria. As a result, your digestive system becomes impaired. You will feel pain in your stomach and when it happens more often, you may soon develop ulcers.

HEREDITARY

Eczema is also hereditary. If someone in your family has had eczema then it is more possible that you will have eczema also.

Should eczema be stress related, you will be advised to stay away from activities that make it come back. You could talk to your boss and tell them about your condition. This will allow him or her to lessen your workload and give this to someone else rather than seeing you in such terrible shape.

Sadly, there is nothing you can do if it is genetic. The only thing doctors can do is tell you what to do when it happens and how to prevent it from recurring.

Proper hygiene is probably the best advice because with the help of moisturizers, you will be able to keep your skin healthy.

It is always a bit of a mission trying to find out the root cause of your eczema flare ups. Trying this and trying that to see if you can pinpoint the culprit.

The only good news is that there is eczema treatment available. Before you try anything, it is best to get yourself diagnosed rather than self-medicating because you could only make matters worse.

Herbal remedies are very appealing because they are a natural means of helping our body cope with many problems with little or no side effects.

Herbal treatments for eczema come from different places all over the world. The best place to look for herbal treatments for eczema is by visiting your nearest local food and health products store.

Some of the most popular herbal remedies for eczema are the following:

Milk thistle – also good for treating other disorders related to a malfunctioning liver.

Gotu Kola – a plant from India often used as an additive to balms for dry, cracked skin.

Pau D’arco – derived from the bark of the same tree which originates in South America; it’s often used to help boost the immune system of the body.

Licorice – its roots are effective for reducing swelling and other allergic reactions; also great for restoring the normal functioning of the liver, thus treating any condition associated with a damaged liver.

Primrose – its oils are popular among Europeans for many skin problems, including eczema.

Gamma Linolenic Acid (GLA) is a substance found out to do wonders on eczema.  Sometimes called gamoleic acid, GLA is a form of a fatty acid found primarily in vegetable oils.

Although such herbal treatments for eczema may be beneficial, one must not expect it to work instantly like magic. It may take a few applications before the initial results may become noticeable.
