Eczema ....o..m...g!!!!!

I have had this all my life, the only things that have worked for me are tanning beds, chlorine pools, no stress, NO SCRATCHING!!!! Sparring use of hydrocortisones and most of all staying moisturizer without suffocating my skin, I've found that aveeno makes a lotion for eczema sufferers that is mild for daily use.... Lotion or whatever within 3mins of your shower or bath, that is when your pores are open and the eczema skin will absorb.

Archipelago botanicals milk bubbath

Very calming to skin. Very faint pleasant scent. Taken in a warm bath soaking 15 minutes or longer per day. Apply honey to soaked affected areas. Leave on 5-10 minutes. Honey is antibacterial humectant that cleans open sores and calms itching. The hot bath itself has a stress relieving effect and the milk bubble bath makes the water feel soft as silk.

It smells bad but really works well

I have had eczema issues on and off for years and I found this remedy on line about a year ago it really works.
Take none instant oatmeal and turn it into a fine powder, add olive oil and glycerin until you have a thick paste, then add a little water. This will allow your body to absorb the moisture more quickly, apply to your skin and rub in the oatmeal calms the itch and the rest gets rid of the eczema.

I have struggled with eczema for the last 20 yrs or so. My mom had it all over her body when she was a child. She is now rid of it completely now that she is in her 60's, but she developed asthma instead.
Anyway, she gave me all her "tricks" she used. Most of them would be a temporary fix, but I would still end up with break outs. Finally after talking with my doctor about it for the hundredth time, she suggested trying Loratidine as eczema is actually an allergy of sorts. I take one tab every day and I have not had a major outbreak in over a year. I still have itching spells once in awhile, but they last only a day or so. I also use lots of lotion that contains no scents/parfums.
I have heard that this may also help cirrhosis.

Could be an allergy to milk proteins

Eczema may be a result of an intolerance/allergy to milk proteins. My 10 year old son just had a routine allergy screening. We found that he is allergic to milk proteins. Consequently, he has been drinking milk his whole life! He always drinks skim, in which there are less of these eczema worsening proteins.

So, for those of you who have eczema, try eliminating dairy from your diet. I am not allergic to milk. But I do prefer rice milk because cow's milk contains casein protein which can be a rapid cataylist for cancer production. You can read "The China Study" for extensive information on casein protein among many other commin foods in the American diet. You will be surprised!
