Since my delivery last December, I got a severe eczema on the top of my right hand… since, I am trying to get rid of it.
Apple cider vinegar and Extra Virgin Oil help me to stop itching and having a soft skin. during the time olive oil was on I felt great BUT it didn't cure me cause every time I stopped putting it on my hand I got rash, itch and very dry skin =(
My husband asked me to stop putting them on my hand and to cure it like a burn and he was right cause since 1 month ..I am getting better every day and I have hope to see it disappear one day.
It seems our brain doesn't know when the skin has to be cure or not, you have to send a message to it in order to get a cure.
So by a very simple acupuncture process on my hand (the palm of my hand), my brain was able to understand that this part of my body needs to be cure. I did that 3 days and I noticed a difference!!
In addition, I stopped moisturizing my hand cause if I continued to moisturizing it , the skin will never moisturizing by herself again, so I forced my skin to do the job herself (it s not easy because you hand is very dry, you got cracks and it s painful, you itch too cause of that but if you have enough motivation and you keep in mind to stop itching it will be a success)
After that, I wet roll towel sheets with warm water and a put it on my hand with a medical tape wrap bandage. I kept this bandage all day long and I was vigilant to keep it wet. this! Help me a lot, my skin was soft, no itching , no rash etc…so feel great and you even forget about it. During the night I take it off and forced my skin to cure, so you have again a dry skin and a lot of dead skin to take off and you do that until you are skin is getting better.
Be careful about the soap you use, try to buy one very moisturizing and use always the same one. (Dove brand shea butter one helps me)
The sun will help you too, keep you hand under sun and avoid wind cause you ll get a very dry skin after (we dont want that)
Try to eat omega 3 and 6, since I started cooking cereal bars by myself, I digest well and at the end I am balancing my body will all it needs to be better and in the same time I cure my skin
As I am nursing my baby so I cant clean my intestine, (the goal it to clean all the toxins you have) usually you have eczema cause your intestines dont know how to deal with too much toxins so usually the skin is the second one to take charge of, that ' why we have eczema…
Now I can say that my hand is practically cure, I do not wear any bandage anymore. You can do it every time you need until you get rid of it.
About a year ago I had my first ever outbreak of Dyshidrotic eczema on my hands. At first glance I didn’t pay much mind to it until about a week after and my hands had developed full on blisters and after a week would dry up and leave discolored dead skin which was socially awkward and frustrating. I was baffled at first as to what had caused it until I did a bit of research on it. Apparently others were suffering from the same thing as me but I wanted to narrow down the variables a bit more. After more research I came to the conclusion that my case of athlete’s foot was the culprit (root cause of the fungal infection) and when my feet were at its worse the dyshidrosis would begin. I have been battling athlete’s foot for years and it was just getting worse.
Long story short, I stopped my athlete’s foot with a half and half mixture of white vinegar and water and soaked my feet for 30 minutes, once a day, every day for a week and a half. I started doing this after I noticed an outbreak on my hands occurring and after just a few days the treatment stopped the dyshidrotic eczema dead in its tracks and a week after the small but not developed outbreak was dried up and gone. Even though my feet are still a bit red and tender from years of having athletes foot it has drastically improved and the eczema on my hands have never returned.
In the end, I have associated my breakouts of dyshidrosis to the initial fungal infection from the athlete’s foot. I am not a skin specialist, just going by what worked for me. If you are suffering from this condition my best advice would be to find a root cause to the break outs. I’ve heard that leaky-gut syndrome can be a cause but there is so much speculation out there which is what makes dealing with any kind of eczema so frustrating!! I hope this helps….
My daughter had an extreme case of eczema. We used to live in the city where we were of course provided with city water. They put flouride in the water… We now live in the country and have well water (no flouride added!!! ). My daughter’s eczema has totally gone away. Flouride is BAD for you… It is a poison!!! When a truck hauls flouride, they have to put a hazardous placard on the trailer. That should tell us all something!!!
My son has had severe eczema due to what I believe to be vaccine poisoning. I believe this caused damage to his immune system. I have read a lot about eczema because his is so bad and nothing really works that well. Anyway I came across an article written by a man who had a similar condition and he said people don’t realize that Fluoride can exacerbate eczema. He said he had great success with his condition by filtering Fluoride out of his water. Well I thought it was worth a try and I purchased a $70.00 filter system specifically made to filter out fluoride. Well what do you know, my son’s eczema improved by about 80-90% no lie. We were astonished. Try talking to his pediatrician, who looks at me like I’m Cuckoo. The other thing we use is coconut oil religiously on the skin after showering and Myrrh and Goldenseal salve.
Eczema Remedy: I went to France last summer and my eczema went away in a matter of days. I got back to the US and it came back in a few weeks. I tried to figure out what was different in France that helped my skin. I thought the water might be and that my showers could be making my skin worse. I bought a shower filter which easily attaches right before the head of the shower for $18 at Menards. Within a few days my skin started to clear up and has been better than ever these past few months. My filter recently filled up though and quit doing its job so I had to buy a new one, so make sure you replace them if you notice your skin going bad.
I suffered from eczema my entire life – I head it all over my arms and legs as a kid, and continued to suffer from it on my legs (behind my knees), my arms, and hands. After trying countless prescriptions, lotions, oils, etc., I finally found my cure – do nothing. I found that by putting these ointments and lotions on my skin, even though it was dry, it makes my skin itchier and weakens the skin for when you scratch – and by the way, I could control my self and not scratch during the day, but my itching was so bad that I would scratch unconsciously at night – very very aggravating). So do nothing – and ever since I stopped using any lotions or ointments, my eczema is gone on my legs and arms. My hand unfortunately, I still have to watch because doing dishes, working on cars, etc. is much more demanding on my dry skin – so every so often I have to work on that. Yes my skin is still dry – so sorry ladies if you demand having soft smooth skin, cause that I don’t know how to fix. I got the idea from my friend in med school, who pointed out that people’s lips who use chapstick actually will produce less oil because of the artificial oils coming from chapstick. Same with my skin – the skin will balance oils, etc. once you stop putting stuff on there. Some of my boys also have my skin – and we’ve instituted the same policy – no lotions, just let the skin adjust. It takes months some times, but it is the best option I’ve found for the long term.
On eczema, I believe removing the cause is the best cure. The causative factor is usually soap. No matter what kind – if it’s soap, don’t use it. One of our psychiatrists came in with a classic case of exzema (in his forties). I took one look at him and remarked, “that looks itchy, is it?” He said yes. When I caught him without an audience, I asked him if he ever tried leaving off soap for his eczema. He said he had and it got better at first, then got worse.
This almost threw me off track, until I thought to ask him what he used instead of soap. He replied that he didn’t remember the name of it but it was some kind of medicated cream. I then suggested that he try leaving off soap again and not using any thing instead. He was surprised when told to just use a thick, wash cloth and water when bathing, nothing else, but agreed to give it a try. Several days later when he was next on call, he came in with the smoothest complexion and very happy with it.
People who forgo the use of soap also find that they have less body odor and attract fewer insect bites.
Again, on headaches, remove the cause, instead of looking for a cure. Aspartame (Nutrisweet) is well known for causing headaches. So is Monosodiumglutamate. If you want to find some other things they can cause, type in Excitotoxins, and hit search. For those who think MSG is only found in stir-fried (Chinese foods), make a list of the names MSG is hidden under in the ingredients list, then go into your kitchen and see how many of your foods have one or more of them listed in the ingredients.
Classic example is the 15% chicken broth that may be contained in a well-known brand of raw chicken that you must take home and cook…The MSG isn’t mentioned because they didn’t add MSG – they added chicken broth which contained the MSG…..Learn to protect yourself and your loved ones by learning these legal loop-holes. Oh, yes, you will also learn that that they are named excitotoxins because they excite the neural cells (Brain & Central nervous system) to death.
If you also research meta-bolic syndrome X (now called insulin resistance) by orthodox medicine) you will also find that excitotoxins are the same things that cause insulin resistance which ends up as full fledged Diabetes Mellitus,Type 2 which used to be called DM, adult onset, but was renamed to DM type 1 for juvenile onset and type 2 for adult onset, because children (even toddlers, are now developing type 2. So be your own health defender by learning all the names the excitotoxins are hidden under, stop buying these products, and write the supplier telling them why you aren’t buying their product. You will only have to make one list because the excitotoxins are the same ones that makes us kick out excess insulin, proceed through insulin resistance, then to full fledged DM, type 2 and all of its complications.
What you are stating is, in fact, supported by hard science;
The skin care producers know that at least one-in-thirty moisture cream users will have a severe reaction to a key "antibacterial/preservative" present in an ever-growing number of products, namely a compound known as MIT, a shortened version of methylisothiazolinone, which, like MSG, goes by many labeled names, and which has several chemical cousins.
First, it is a well documented neural toxin, and was never meant to remain on human skin. It was only approved in surgical antibiotic soaps, which were intended to be immediately rinsed with copious amounts of water away from the body to literally sterilize all pathogens from the exterior of a human. Even then, they knew a large percentage of humans would develop raw, burning skin, replete with oozing blisters and secondary bacterial infections.
Great product, right?
So then it was approved for mass-market, antibacterial hand washes. Now it is in nearly all of your liquid laundry detergents and, worse, most of the commercial moisturizers and make-up products.
It was NEVER intended for prolonged contact with human skin…ever…just as a flush-wash to kill pathogens.
Again, not only does it cause blistering contact dermatitis, it also causes permanent neurological damage, including blurred vision, peripheral neuropathiEs and palsies, and the like.
I wish that I was making this up, but the same people making these skin care products are also selling the "cures", like prednisone, benedryl, and even Claritin.
I know this because the the pharm company that made the "all-natural" moisturizer that gave me a blistery, acid-burned, scarring rash and bacteria-infected skin (sleep scratching) is the same parent company that made the $846/tube "cure" my doctor prescribed to get rid of said chemical burn.
The first irony is that she also prescribed a different moisturizer, Eucerin, which also contains MIT, to help combat this "skin disorder/allergy" I had supposedly contracted, "out of the blue".
Kind of genius, in a Dr. Evil sort of way.
Oh, and if you buy veggie wash soaps, it is the main ingredient, so you might not want to eat that…even if you don't blister internally, you might not appreciate the premature dementia.
Then again, you won't have the mind to care by that point.
Thank God for my informed allergist, is all I can say.
Ok. After 20 years of dealing with dyshdriotic eczema, allergic dermatitis, contact dermatitis…essentially every skin malady recognized under the sun… I think I can provide some help. While steroidal creams such as diflorasone diacetate provide relief, they do not cure or prevent. The problem is organic. Here is the cocktail that I have found keeps me quasi-remissive with the least amount of side-effects: 1200mg of Lecithin, 50mg of zinc, 400 I.U. of vitamin E and 500mg L-Lysine once daily after a meal. For some reason, the anti-hystaminic effects of loratadine are more effective for skin disorders than other common OTC anti-histamines. I suggest one 10 mg loratadine once to twice a week to give the skin a “calm-down” period. Works for me…and I cook for a living.
Pure Jojoba oil has cleared up my daughters eczema ; shampoo without sulphates cleared up her eczema.
