How I cured my eczema

Ok, here's my story, I was born with atopic eczema, allergic to dustmite. The reason why I write here is because I'm sick of pharmaceautical companies providing useless information for battling eczema.
I used to have it all over my face,my legs, weeping sores. It was an ugly sight and I could not swim or go do sports as sweating would get into my joints and not to mention sleeping was a horrible ordeal.
I'm not here to sell anything, but I do wish somebody told me this earlier. If you're desperate to get rid of your eczema hear me out.
Basically eczema is an immuno-disease which means our body becomes inflammed extremely easily. We may often find ourselves removing allergens from our environment, turning to find the source of irritation but often failing to recognise that it is our own immune system that is moving too abruptly. So what we should all be focusing on is our immune system. This is where omega 3 comes into play, once upon a time when cows were fed grass and not grain (grain is NOT a natural food) cows actually had what fish had inside their fat composition, OMEGA 3. And we as humans used to consume more than 10 times the amount of omega 3 in the past than we do now simply because omega 3 is a fragile chemical structure and processed foods mean that omega 3 is often destroy in the process of manufacturing the food source.
You will find that your body is starving for this type of oil, do not worry you will not gain weight, this will all go to your skin, you will need therapeutic doses, do not be surprised if you take one a day that nothing will happen. As my naturopath said, you will need 6 high potency(high in DHA and EPA) tablets per day, do this for about 3 weeks straight and feel the difference. You will also concentrate better and feeel more flexible.
The next step is to eliminate key irritants in the products we use, forget QV cream, oatmeal creams, dermaveen, pharmaceautical companies will always make useless things as to keep you buying! Use something with literally nothing in it, emulsifying ointment or wools alcohol ointment has literally nothing in it and lasts a long time.
With shampoo and conditioners and body washes, go to the nearest organic store and buy Sodium lauryl sulfate free and paraben free products (no SLS!), try and buy a product for sensitive dry scalp such as avalon or sukin.
In the long run, start taking probiotics, a multivitamin a day, exercise and also experience the wonderful freedom of not reacting to your surroundings, as unusual as it might seem, it works!

Thanks for sharing your advice. Can you tell me what the doses should be for omega 3 for curing exczema (including the DHA and EPA levels)?

I have had dramatic results taking Carlson's liquid Cod Liver Oil Lemon Flavor. Dosage is key. Too little and you won't see results, too much will give you diarrhea and make you prone to bruises as it thins the blood. 1 Tablespoon is what I take for results and I don't miss a day because when I do I immediately notice a difference with my eczema. I have no connection at all with the company. Good luck! Eczema is a drag, but fish oil will help you and with other inflammatory conditions in your body.

Nettle shampoo and nettle soap are worth a try

i, too, am suffering from eczema. I had it as a child, and then it went away. At 35 I suffered a miscarriage, and suddenly, my life was all about hives and eczema. The hives have cleared, but the eczema remains.
I will try the omega 3!(i am interested in cod liver oil, but i think it's important to be careful about vitamin a when you are trying to conceive).
Side note, I had an allergic reaction to nettle! I know... Pathetic.
