I agree that healthy and nutritious diet is necessary to heal eczema. “Oils for Eczema” help a lot in treatment. Eczema risk factors include abrupt changes in temperature, emotional stress and allergic reactions etc. We should try to prevent our self from these factors.

How did you find out that you are allergic to soy product? There are plenty of items that I use in daily life. Does blood test work?
not necessarily, I've hade allergy tests and the only thing to show up is shrimp! and I never have a problem with shrimp. When I get strict with my diet and cut out the Soy, my ecezema clams down dramatically to a tolerable level.

Allergies. Allergies are what is causing our excema. I KNOW Soy is my main allergy. I have had excema really bad for the last 2 years. It seems soy is added to everything.. When did this start happening? When did soy become so popular in our foods? That is why it didn't happen so bad when we were kids cause there was not much soy around.

Starting this week, soy is out of my diet.. that means chocolate too.. so many things. Read the ingredients and try your best. I'm going to! My lips are burning right now, my inner arms, my hands, my breasts, my neck... I was putting Vitamin E on me which also contains soy... I was using Glycerin products.. soy... no amount of cream or steroids will cure you. Diet is key. Good luck everyone!

I have been looking for a natural eczema treatment for so long. I've had eczema all my life, but I've never found much help from any different kind of medications. I've heard things like bubble baths help, but not so much for me. Hopefully I can get something figured out soon. http://www.glaciersoap.com

I'm 23 years old and I've had eczema my whole life. In the past couple years it got a lot worse and spread to my face. My lips got extremely chapped and I got a rash on my cheeks and above my lips. I went to the allergist who found nothing. They told me that food was probably not causing my eczema. I did not believe them so I did my own elimination diet anyway. Turns out I am allergic to casein, which is in most dairy products. My eczema has cleared up 90% and eliminating dairy is hard but so worth it!

To the person who gave their son a bath with half a cup of bleach in it, you should probably go shoot yourself in the face, because you obviously suffer from some form of mental psychosis if you actually believe that bleach will do anything other than make your son's eczema worse.

Hi all, I just finished a one-month trial of emu oil on my 4 year old daughter's eczema (her arm which gets it the worst). We were getting desperate as this flare up had been going on for months, and I didn't want to dose her with the hydrocortisone every day. I ordered the emu oil online (I'm not trying to stump so contact me privately if you want to know the company). It was pricey,$25/4 oz. I can say that it didn't help right away, but after four weeks her arm has almost completely cleared up! I put photos on my blog here if you want to see for yourself:

Hello, I have been reading some of your stories...I'm sorry to hear you are suffering from such terrible eczema. I was hoping to help, please look at my website; gems-cream.co.uk

It's my well researched recipe, an all natural cream, no chemicals, made from beeswax, cocoa butter and a blend of essential oils targeted at combating dry and sensitive skin.

I originally made it for my mum about 6 years ago as she had eczema all over her hands - she hasn't had any since and word spread from there...

I guess you get fed up with people suggesting all sorts of creams. Have a read of a few of the testimonials on the website and see what you think...it's waxy so lasts a long time....mum's had her last pot for nearly two years - she only needs to apply it when it flares up.

Thanks for taking the time to read this. You are welcome to contact me with any questions...

Warm regards, Gemma

I have researched eczema after suffering since childhood and put together a small information site with things that have really helped me overcome it. It comes from 10 years of personal research and has info about things like natural antibiotics for inflammations, keeping the condition of your skin at it's best, and some essential books that have also helped me reach great skin. Do check it out as there may be things you don't know about that could help you, and let me know what you think!

So I went and had my blood tested, found out all of the things I am allergic to. I quit eating all of the foods, I was tested for 96 different foods. 3 days after I quit eating the foods... my excema cleared up completely. PLEASE GET ALLERGY TESTING> BLOOD.

As soon as I eat one of those things on my list, my excema comes back.

I have been suffering with eczema on my hands for years now & sometimes all over my body. I finally went to an allergist because I noticed it flared with certain foods. She basically told me I was crazy & food was not the problem. I decided to do my own elimination diet & it cleared up within three or four days. I am in the process of figuring out which foods exactly are the problem but tomatoes and soy seem to be major problems. Also, possibly other beans and nuts. I was tested and tests were negative for allergies. But my hands get inflammed and so itchy whenever I eat these foods. Please do not take your doctor's word for it & do an elimination diet. It is so worth it.

My daughter haves mild eczema. I tried frequent applications of pure... Glicerin oil and seems to sooth it in a couple days. Needs to be consistent though! Look into glicerin oil it's very humectant. that's also something they lack on... good luck!

I don't know about you but there is so much rubbish on the internet about the miracle cure for eczema, the old "learn how to cure your eczema" statements are repeated over and over again.
Any dermatologist will tell you that there is no cure for eczema, you can only manage your eczema. I'm afraid the reality is if you have eczema you are stuck with it for life its a fact.
The difference is knowing how to manage your eczema to a appoint that it can also not be visible. Now having said that, it doesn't mean that your eczema is not going to come back.
You need to learn and understand what your body lacks and needs in order for your body to manage eczema.

I have had eczema my whole life and have used all types of treatments. But you see these treatments are just that, they treat the symptoms of eczema not the root cause of eczema.
I have been to many dermatologists where they have given me this and given me that, which to be honest helped in the mean time but as I said earlier they only treated the symptoms not the root cause.

I found a blog with free information on how to help manage eczema.
Definitely contains some pretty cool stuff, worth a read http://www.disappeareczema.com/blog

If you respond to eliminating Soy, it may not be the soy itself but a Nickel allergy. Soy is high in Nickel, so a food allergy test of soy may come up negative even though taking it away helps. Nickel allergy has a skin test. Google nickel allergy for more info, this can be a huge issue with eczema. Good luck!

Hello everyone,
I have suffered from eczema my whole life. I am now 25 years old and I thought I beat the desease a while ago. However, I've had the worst case of eczema in years this summer!It's on my stomach, my breats, my armpits, my arms, and my neck and my legs. It has become very depressing and embarrassing. I wanted to know how you deal with this on an emotional basis? I get so sad and lonely, and cry a lot when I look at myself.
Check out this website: http://www.eczema-natural-healing.com . no sales involved. the website is created by a wonderful woman who once had severe eczema, and is sharing her information with others. Also, monitor the foods and drinks you're ingesting. Some of them might be causes of the eczema, and/or aggravating it.
