I got eczema two weeks ago on my hands and arms. Never had I had this before. I was so panicked because they where oozing, swollen and itchy and I could not do my work, cook, clean for my family. Thanks to earth clinic I got the itchiness under control with apples, acv, Quercetin supplements, and homemade moisturizers. But that did not get rid of eczema, just the itchiness. I read Lou Lou from Adelaide's post (2012) and immediately and knew that this was my problem.
3 days after eating more zinc rich foods, ie. Liver, beef, pumpkin seeds and just eating more foods. I had been trying to do more anti inflamitory diet of green smoothies and more colourful produce. I didn't expect to get healed eating meats!!! I am looking into supplementing iwth zinc although there are a variety of different forms so I have to research which one is the most absorbable. I am 80% better and no longer have to wear gloves to work. Still have dry skin with a touch of redness, but am so relieved to know what caused this. Thank you so much for your comment as this was what steered me in the healing direction.
I have posted twice on this fantastic website before, so I will try to keep this one brief!
I have recently read that Eczema is mainly caused by deficiency of zinc in the body. Taking zinc supplements or foods rich in zinc will help in restoring the healing property of the body and treating eczema. Zinc promotes the synthesis of collagen, which is a necessary element of proper wound healing also.
Foods high in zinc are beef, lamb, pork, crab, lettuce, avocado, banana, cauliflower, cheese, egg, milk, yogurt, wheatgerm, seeds such as pumpkin, squash and watermelon, and oysters top the list. So if you are an oyster lover like me, dig in! 🙂
I’ve had some success with this one. Desitin Diaper Rash cream. Ingredients are Cod Liver Oil plus Zinc (2 remedies already mentioned in here). The stuff doesn’t work overnight, but it seems to work.
Note: it is known that Zinc supplementation cures facial eczema in cows, I looked for a zinc product.
Had some bumps dissapear and wrinkles/stretch marks go away and hair grow back in the affected area. I’d say 80% cured in 2 weeks. Kind of smelly stuff. Got a bit lazy on application.*****Eczema is often a misdiagnosed yeast/fungal infection. Diaper rash is usually a yeast problem. So I’m thinking this eczema stuff is like “adult diaper rash”. 🙂
Yes! I had several patches of eczema/proriasis (self diagnosed) all over and I finally, in desperation, tried a generic knockoff brand of Desitin which, of course, had the same ingredients. It did take a while, but not too long really, to start healing the patches. Some took longer than others – esp. if they were in any area where moisture accumulates. Now I have eczema in my ears and it is causing almost continuous ear infections. Am trying to decide if diaper rash cream in the outer ear canal is a good idea. Nothing else has worked and I don’t want cortisone due to nasty side effects.
