what cured my eczema

Perth, Australia

I wanted to share this with all of you who suffer from eczema. I started to suffer from eczema on my face in late 2004 after having years of perfect skin. It came on suddenly and I tried from hydrocortisone, and stronger stuff, to using non soap products and only sorbolene cream, and Lucas Paw Paw ointment and Medihoney.

The only thing that worked temporarily was the Paw Paw ointment, but relief was only temporary and it seemed that after my skin became used to it, the eczema returned.

In June this year I came across an old container of Papaya Body Butter which I had purchased from the Body Shop, and thought what the heck, I'll put this on and see what happens. The eczema on my face disappeared. I continued to use the Body Butter on my face and my skin totally cleared up without any lapses in between! A couple of weeks ago I went travelling and didn't bother with the Body Butter - the rash on my face returned. I was quick to go to the local Body Shop (in Hong Kong) and bought a container of the Almond Body Butter, and that miraculously made the eczema disappear again.

So I suggest to all of you who have eczema on the face - try Body Butter from the Body Shop.
