Like many here, I've had eczema for most of my life. I'm 18 now and altho it has improved it still flares up from time to time and I feel utterly miserable.

The best thing I ever did was analyse my problem. I realised I could control the scratching during the daytime through willpower alone [which wasnt that much anyway]. The most damaging thing I did was scratch during the night, either in my sleep or when it woke me up and I was too tired to stop myself cause it felt good.

I ended up wearing a long-sleeved cotton shirt to bed as well as thin, long women's cotton gloves. I'd put the sleeves of the shirt over these gloves and use PVC/insulating tape to keep them on. Altho it's a very weird thing to do, I had complete success with this procedure. Whenever a flare starts to get too bad, I sleep like this for a while again.

The downside is it doesnt work so much anymore. It worked when I was 15 but I'm not exactly 'curing' it anymore. I also don't trust myself if I'm sleeping at a mate's house or anything. I'd rather stay awake and not scratch then sleep and find myself covered in wounds, heh

Do orange juice fasting.
Try raw fruits and raw vegetables only.
Cooked foods are toxic.
He can't handle it at his young age.
Do not feed him milk.

Hi, I'm Jessica, and fourteen year old from Medicine Hat Alberta. I have lived with eczema my whole life, well at least as long as I can remember. I had tried everything and had been to special doctors but nothing seemed to be working. I remember just about 2 months ago sitting on the floor with a comb bawling and just scratching at my skin continuesly until it bled or hurt so bad that I couldn't bend my joints. My eczema was everywhere too all over my legs, my tummy, my arms, and my neck. Finally it got so bad that it started spreading to my face.... it was horrible. I was so embarrassed that I would wear long sleeve shirts all the time and long pants even in gym. I couldn't figure out wut I was doing wrong. So anyone out there with eczema I totally feel for you... Cause I can clearly remember those painful nights, and embarassing gym classes and embarassing times going swimming and hiding in the water. And I am proud to say that now I am clean and wore a skirt to school for the first time in years on monday!
So now for the good part and i hope this will help. Just remember that your not alone and many people deal with this. Try and stay stress free.... stress just makes it worst, stay moisturized, do not use scented lotions and bubble baths, do not wear metal unless it is gold, silver or surgical steel, and try using a cortisone cream, also at night take a pair of old socks and cut the toes off then apply your cream, you can then pull the socks over your arms and legs and your cream will not rub off, also try socks on your hands at night to stop from scratching, also before you go to bed take a anti-itch pill, I know that it may sound easy but it will take a while but i promise the results are rewarding =D
Hi Jessica, I understand you're 14? well, eczema is a very bad skin disorder and hard to trat. If I may, I would like to make a suggestion. YOu may want to get your parents to research this with you. The Mangosteen fruit has had phenominal results with most people. I know a fellow that is a retired truck driver and fought with it for 23 years. He never found releif. He went to specialists, took shots and went through 5 tubes of expensive salve each moth to no avail. It wasn't until his daughter-in-law intrduced him to the Mangosteen and Xanthones. After using it for about a week, it started to clear up and after several weeks using it, it was totally gone. That was 2 years ago and it has never returned. For research and to request mor information, go to
www.InformationOnMangosteen.info The more you learn about this amazing fruit also known as the Queen of Fruits, the more you'll love what you read and hear.

If I may, I would like to suggest you research Mangosteen and Xanthones. The results people have with eczema using Mangosteen are phenominal. You should start seeing results within a week or so. Go to www.InformationOnMangosteen.info to research and request more information. You'll be in awe at what you learn about this amazing botanical. Get your life back!

This is a message for all of you who have UNBEARABLE eczema like me or are parents of kids like this.(or what i used to be). YOUR CURE IS HERE!!!!! Go to a dermatologist. Ask about a topical steroid cream called "Desoximetasone." Also get a genaric brand of eucerin called "Equate." Grease it on yourself for about 15 minutes every night. Oh and Make sure you SHOWER EVERY NIGHT!!! Also, if the showers burn the skin and you SCREAM bloody murder, try this. Take an Epsom Salt bath in a tub for 20 minutes and listen to music. This will reduce the swelling and make your skin soft. It will also relax the muscles. I know I know, all the readers think Im talking like a doctor. Im not trying to. Im just trying to help everyone. Here is the list of things to do, easier to understand.

- Go to a dermatologist
- Ask about Desoximetasone topical steroid cream
- Get Equate Cream
- Take an Epsom Salt bath.
- DONT SCRATCH

P.S. I went to the dermatologist and in 2 DAYS ALL OF MY CUTS (emphasize the ALL) were scars. Now, Im just waiting for scars to fade.

GOOD LUCK TO ALLLL!!!!!

Hi! I am already 27 years old. I also have eczema. I had this before but after I applied cream, it was treated. But after 4 years, I have it again. And this time, its getting worse. I've been searching to the net for almost a month now on how to cure this severe itchiness but I'm losing hope. Eczema is almost all over my legs and thighs. Mr./Mrs. Goodsamaritan, can you please help me. I've seen in the web this "ECZECURE". Is this effective? Is it available in the Philippines? Please help me...

I use a product called Hydrolatum. It isn't widely available but you can go to their Web site and maybe request a sample. It works good and isn't greasy. You only need a little bit too.

Try it. It might work or it might not work. I use Theraplex emollient to control the itching and the flare-ups.

Hey I know exactly how you feel. I get so many people asking me why I have a rash on my arm or what it is and gawking at it. I've even been so self consicious up to the point where I try to wear long sleeves and scarves as well. I've had eczema since I was very little and still do at age 16. I acutally came online looking for a little uplift cause I've been just angry at the fact no one would tell me anything except put this cream on or take this pill. I'm willing to try them one last time but I've been looking around for more dietry or natural ways to help my flare ups.
Thanks for sharing your story, it's kinda uplifted me a little bit.

My son Seth had eczema all over his body from six months old until he was 30 months.
I tried everything and nothing helped until I found Repcillin.
We were at our wits ends. seth woke up every four hours crying and he scratched himself to a point where he was bleeding. My husband ended up sleeping in another bedroom as he was getting no sleep.
After only three weeks using the balm, Seth had healed almost all over his body.
Now 18 months later he is still clear of eczema.
I took photos of him before we started the course and again after a month. They are poasted on Youtube just look for videos on eczema.
Don't lose hope everyone, I know it works.

Hi. I'm 14 and i only have eczema on my elbows, but im worried that it will never go away. When it goes i hope that it will never come back but it also does. I noticed that none of you have mentioned allergies from food. Dairy realy make my eczema get worse, so maybe you guys should try that. Im scared to try any new creams in case they make it worse. Sometimes i get really stressed out about it, cos i dont like showing it nd have to wear long sleeved tops a lot. it makes me feel better that others are feeling the same way i do, nd if anyone finds anything that really helps, that would be great. i hope it will go away soon and never come back, for all of us.

DIGESTIVE Enzymes help improve eczema.
Improving digestion is essential in patients with eczema. Digestive enzymes must be produced in adequate amounts to facilitate normal digestion. Good bacteria are key in aiding digestion, and nutritional deficiencies may restrict the production of essential enzymes.
Learnt how by taking enzyme supplements, help address the problem. PM me if interested. stealing_home@hotmail.com
