Krill Oil capsules help my eczema. Wish YOU WELL!
Krill oil helped my eczema.
My eighteen year old daughter has struggled with eczema outbreaks almost non-stop since she was just a wee thing. Her arms were broken out so badly that she would actually wear long sleeves on hot, summer days because she was embarrassed.
In addition to steroid creams prescribed by her dermatologist, we have tried every product (and combination of products) known to man for over a decade – special soaps, lotions, creams – you name it, we’ve tried it. None of it worked. At best, it offered a bit of calming, but the large patches of skin eruptions remained.
In my determination to rid her, or even just ease her of this troublesome and embarrassing affliction, I continued to research and continued to try different methods.
I am beyond excited to report that I found a combination that actually works! It has been over a month and her skin has never looked better! She is blissfully happy, and I am so happy for her.
Deep down, I always felt that treatment from the inside-out would be most effective. In my research travels, I came across an article suggesting exactly that – that “good health begins in the gut” and cited eczema as one of the ailments that could be “cured” with probiotics.
I bought some quality probiotics but after a month, we didn’t see any improvement. For the heck of it, I had her eat a small container of vanilla yogurt every day and I had her take a fish oil capsule with her breakfast and again before bed. The combination worked! 🙂 I can’t believe it. After all these years, all of the remedies tried, not to mention, the thousands of dollars spent – yogurt and fish oil every day did the trick and she is finally free of it!
She joked that I should win the Nobel Prize for curing eczema (hahaha). 🙂 I’m not sure it would be a cure for everyone, but given my daughters amazing results, it is absolutely something you should try. I hope your results are equally amazing.
Yea, it is perfect. She is right. I had also this problem but had around my eyes. I took fish oil dietary supplement. I worked and I am 90% satisfied I did ot took yogart but I will use now.
which fish oil capsule did u buy? There's too many choices available.
The fish oil capsules I used were nothing fancy. I, personally, have tried the pricier fish oils that come in glass bottles, but it's been my experience that they don't work any better than the inexpensive ones.
I use Nature Made 1,000mg fish oil capsules–two capsules per day. You can find that brand at any of the large chains. The vanilla yogurt was Activia brand–also available pretty much anywhere.
(I've been around EC long enough that I think I can mention brand names without anyone thinking I'm trying to 'pimp' products. 😉
Hope this combination works as well for you as it did for my daughter!
Eczema probably stems from a variety of reasons, and I think one of those reasons is TAPE WORMS. Many people have them and don't even know it, so I believe if you get rid of the tape worm, your skin will clear up. I have not tried ACV for eczema, but I take fish oil pills and they work just fine. It's not a cure but it remedies the problem until I stop taking the pills for a while. I had eczema since 22 and I am 33 now. Hope this helps.
My son had severe eczema from the time he was a few months old. I took him to 3 doctors and was given prescriptions that didn’t cure him.He scratched til he bled. One day after fasting I read that a deficiency in vitamin A will cause dry, itchy bumps especially on the legs.
I gave him cod liver oil in a cup of juice with a top on it (sippy cup) because of the smell. The next week he did not have one spot on him and he is 18 years old now and never had that again.
Skin Update. Fatty Acid Metabolism Disorder.
Supplement with Borage, or Evening Promrose and Flax Seed Oil and Carnitine.
Eczema and dermatitis can be confused and be misdiagnosed, so forgive me for posting this here. This may help someone.
Symptoms: red, flaky skin, lifting off in very large flakes with white pustules like small cysts, forming rapidly under the skin. I did not have just the redness and broken veins that some people have.
It was diagnosed by my Dr. As “perioral dermatitis”. It was a mess, and I had it for approximately 8-9 months before I figured out what it was.
This is for people who have tried everything. Believe me. I tried everything listed on this website and more.
I treated it as: a pathogen (like a bacteria like strep or staph), a fungus, mites, (yes, I drank the damn borax), scabies, leishmania, malessezzia, (seborrhea), acne, I tried three different antibiotic gels from the Dr, (metrogel, ciclopirox, clindamycin). I would get excited, because some things seemed to work for a few days, or a week but the condition always returned and got progressively worse. A fatty acid metabolism disorder will mimc the symptoms of Dermatitis with few other noticeable symptoms. My only clue came after I took a big dosage of Cod Liver Oil and I saw what looked like chicken skin under my eyes the next day. I knew something was really wrong. Started Flax, and Borage Oil capsules the next day. Took L-Carnitine on an empty stomach, (just happened to have it, and knew it was good for fatty acid metabolism disorder from a study I saw on the web regarding Acidura and Carnitine). The Acidura, (a condition of acidity in the body) interferes with fatty acid metabolism processes in the body. This, combined with a genetic predisposion called kryptopyluria and six cups of coffee a day meant I was not able to process fish oil of any type. This also explains why some of the other remedies like vinegar and baking soda, alkalinizing the body, liver cleanses, and the digestive enzymes seem to work for some people also. You will know within three days if this will work for you.
I saw healing within one day, the flakes stopped in three days and the redness went away in a week. My skin is perfectly clear and has been for two months. I still continue with the Carnitine, Flax and Borage only because I’m afraid to stop. Please note: I did topical applications of Sulfur, (sublimed pwder mixed into mayonese as a carrier) and bought MMS, (chlorine dioxide) previous to trying the Flax, Carnitine and Borage. The sulfur may have lessened the white pustules, but I still had the red, flaky skin. If the pustules don’t go away, you made want to try the sulfur or the MMS.
Wow Diane, Thank you so much for sharing. I have dermatitis. I have just started taking the flaxseed oil, and evening primrose. I will add the carnitine and see if this will work on me also.
Hi. I find this posting most interesting. I have been battling chicken skin for 2-3 years now. I do not have the red flaky skin but have been told I have rosacea. I am wondering if this could possibly be helpful as I have tried everything as well. I currently take evening primrose oil capsules irregularly and put a 1/2 tsp of flaxseed in my oatmeal each am. But I take a lot of omegas and am wondering if this is inadvisable. I take cod liver oil capsules; omega and fish oil capsules and seabuckthorn capsules on a rotating basis. My skin is wonderfully soft from these oils but wondering if it is also too much.
Also please note I did not take all these supplements until after a long time trying to experiment with things to try and get rid of this chicken skin/rosacea type condition. I would like to try just your supplement recommendations and stop all the others temporarily to see if it would clear up my condition – which to clarify is only on my face. I had actually come to the point of giving up trying to remedy my problem because I have worked so hard at it and never seen an improvement over the last few years other than they seem to be less prominent now then other times. I really could never figure out what it was that made them better or worse. I have been told I have candida; I was told by a dermatologist it was a hormone imbalance; so always a mass confusion and a constant process of experimentation.
I am 51 years old and have recently gone through menopause. Again, the symptom of these pustules, white bumps whatever you would call them have never actually left – even for a day. I have had times last summer where a couple picked off but none have come to the surface lately. I could never figure out what it was that happened at that time to cause the slight improvement at that time.
Hi Maggie (fellow Calgarian) – I wonder if you have keratosis pilaris. While it seems most people get it on their arms or legs, some do get it on their face.
There are a number of cures here on Earth Clinic, including a homemade mixture of organic coconut oil, apple cider vinegar and lecithin (emulsifier). You might want to add a few drops of lavender – it sounds like it is quite whiffy!
Here’s the link:
Although you are taking quite a few oils, are you eating enough water-filled vegetables (like in green smoothies)? Supposedly that is the best way to get water into our cells.
A humidifier is a must here in Calgary. Exfoliate your skin very gently and rinse thoroughly before patting on a moisturizer (or coconut oil). Some people even put a 50/50 coconut oil and castor oil blend on their face at night (too heavy for the day).
Also, I believe there are a few forums on the Internet for people with facial keratosis pilaris but I think most of them opt for prescriptions and heavy-duty lotions filled with rather toxic ingredients.
Good luck Maggie! Cheers, Bess
Thank you for posting that info, Dianne, it really makes sense for me, I haven't had eczema for 20 yrs, but had a recent flare up on my chin and under my eye. What's changed in my habits?
1) I switched from a more expensive omega 3-6-9 balanced supplement which included Eve Primrose Oil (GLA) to a cheaper Flax seed oil and have been taking a high dose for some muscoskeletal inflammation. It worked for that but maybe I overdid it and now have an imbalance.
2) I lost over a stone on the intermittent fasting diet where one only has 500-600 calsa day for 2 days a week. However I upped my coffee consumption those days and I work out. The combo of fasting, exercise and coffee would cause my body to metabolise triglycerides/ fatty acids from my own adipose tissue (fat)
I have been trying ACV, coconut oil, Citricidal and allsorts, but nothing has sufficiently worked. I have the qualifications and the knowledge but I didn't make the connection regarding my own body and EFA metabolism til I read your post, Dianne. Thank you for sharing! And thank you Earth Clinic!
PS that might be why the lady above found yeast worked – nutritional yeast contains active ingredients integral to the fatty Acid metabolism process.
Fish oil also known as cod oil makes the biggest difference in my skin condition. I take a spoon full daily and it either completely heals my skin or dramatically reduces the amount of eczema as well as the redness, bumps, itchiness, etc… As a side note, Fish oil is also good for your hair and nails as well.
