4 years on…


Wow! Its been 4 years since I first started this blog, and little has changed, really! Still itchy, still using cream – although the best I’ve found is Aveeno. Oats really do work well!

  1. I find quite useful pomegranate cream

  2. thought this might be of interest to you and your readers. Currently available online in Canada. Check out the studies page. This clothing has performed as well as corticosteroids in clinical trials. less medication, and less itch!

    My son has eczema since 2 years old. I find Aquaphor Healing Ointment quite good.

  4. I was recently diagnosed with eczema, never had it before and I am now 30. Not slept through a night in over a month and really suffering. I am going to try these creams and see if they help, thanks.

  5. 5 I hate eczema too!

    Sorry to hear you’re still having issues! I have opted for the “Yes I know that if I moisturised every 30mins and avoided eating/touching/sniffing anything but air then my eczema MIGHT go away…but screw you I am just going to crack on with life” approach.

    In 22 years of seeing doctors and dermatologists…nobody recommended me this until now, but soft white paraffin is really good for lichenification – it magically transforms my hands from those of an 80 year old fisherman to somewhere near what they should look like for my age and gender. Also a lady who was eavesdropping on my conversation at the airport last week told me that witch hazel gel is magical. Hope that helps.

  6. Someone gave me a sample of Aveeno to try and it is great stuff, sinks right in without a trace. Expensive though 😦

    So glad you found something that works for you! Keep updating please! I’m trying to find active eczema blogs from real people not selling brochures or consults or viagra, lol.

    I agree about the oatmeal, it can be very effective. Having been a sufferer for over 60 years now I have found that keeping the skin moist, avoiding stress with sparing use of cortisone creams help but at best just control. The damn thing keeps returning.

    Great Blog

  10. Have you ever tried Hope’s Relief cream?

    The ingredients list of Aveeno has 5 different types of emulsifying alcohols in their formula. The rest of the ingredients include parrafins, which are petroleum-derived compounds, molecules too large to actually penetrate below the outermost layer of dead skin cells (Stratum Corneum). So, all it does is cover up that layer of skin to help retain a little bit of moisture, yet any healing effects would have been a result of your own body’s natural healing actions.

    Hope’s Relief uses 5 herbal actives to penetrate through the epidermal and dermal layers of skin restoring moisture, reducing inflammation, fighting bacteria or fungi, and assisting in cell repair. There are no petrochemicals, colourings or perfumes in the formula. There is also a money-back guarantee from the web site if you are unsatisfied with the results.

  11. Hi Guys
    not sure if this can help but I run an on-line shop called The Allergy Show – http://www.theallergyshop.com.au – with products to cure and treat Eczema

  12. Hello everyone,

    Our company offers all-natural and organic skin care products. Our Illuminosity face wash and Skintense body butter seem to help our clients suffering from eczema. We’ve posted a before and after image in our recent press release found here: http://botanolution.com/2011/11/new-organic-skincare-company/. We’ll be posting another testimonial from a happy customer soon, so please keep checking back.

    We at Botanolution believe that skin care products should be natural as many fillers and synthetic ingredients can be more harmful to our health than healing.

  13. I’m not sure what type of eczema you have, but this is how I dealt with my dyshidrotic eczema…


    I hope this helps some people..

  14. I a srry to hear ths eczema still bothers you.
    The answer to eczema is not more creams and lotions, but finding out the root causes and dealing with these.

    I had an allergy test done and funny enough, the things I thought I was allergic to turned out I wasn’t. But I was told that I had a dust mite allergy and that was causing my eczema. The solution given to me was to rip out all my carpets and get rid of anything fluffy in the house!

    I’ve been trying to control my eczema through natural remedies, herbal creams, chamomile baths etc. Doesn’t work as well as the medicated creams but long term use has started thinning my skin so I have to find alternatives. I’ve been getting some ideas online – http://www.latestremedy.com has helped me with some eczema cream remedies.
    I tried a chamomile and viola cream and it actually works ok. I would recommend anyone to try it, even if it’s in conjunction with prescription cremes.
    My son has started getting eczema symptoms and I’m worried about the strength of the eczema cream my doctor has prescribed him. I’m trying the natural creams for his eczema too to see if it will help. He’s only 12 months old and I’m worried about the effects the steroid creams would have on his delicate skin. If anyone has some advice..?

    I had eczema on my fingers,saw the dermatologist and was prescribed KMNO4 soak, some steroid creams and aqueous cream for moisturising but ‘cos of side effects of long term steroid use I have stopped using them. It s the itchiness that I cannot stand. I have tried using propolis and it relieves the itchiness. Just applied a drop or two and rub on the affected area. Somehow it reduces the inflammation and the itchiness but it does make the skin dry. Anybody care to try?

    Hi, this is topical steriod addiction… Please please go to this site http://www.itsan.org. You are suffering from ‘Red Skin Syndrome’ which is caused by overuse of topical steriod creams and therefore your skin has become addicted. This can be cured by a total cessation of steriod creams however the steriod withdrawal process is HELL. Please go to this site and join the forums where you will get insight information and support from others who are withdrawing.

  22. When I read this story I realized just how similar it was to my eczema.
    I was so desperate that I tried every thick, smelly cream and goopy ointment I could get my hands on. Nothing really worked permanently and the eczema always came back.
    I knew that there had to be another way. I searched long and hard and finally came across some simple natural remedies that finally made my embarrassing eczema disappear for good…to the amazement of my doctor.

    In fact, you might want to check out this article, it really helped me a lot:
