Stated below is a comment I sent to the National Foundation of Eczema!!!

After suffering from Atopic Eczema for 5 years, frequent visits to the Dermatologist, and applying various creams, ointments and lubricants, I searched thouroughly through the internet for a "cure" for my son.
A few months back, having suffered from eczema myself, I requested information for my 10 year old son. Thank you for the information, but nothing worked!!!
Low and behold, I discovered through the "internet forums" to apply "APPLE CIDER VINEGAR" diluted in water directly on the "Eczema" spots.
At first I was hesitant, then started to apply it 2X a day on my son's eczema (legs & arms)... He screamed w/ pain at the beginning... It has been a month, and sure enough, the eczema is about 98% cured!!!.......

My QUESTION!!!... Why aren't you notifying the PUBLIC about this... NO expensive drugs, ointments or trips to the Dermatologists (who can't do anything anyway) just a simple application of APPLE CIDER VINEGAR!!!

It is a DISGRACE< that a simple method worked and YOUR FOUNDATION NEVER mentioned it!!! I will use every chance I get to HELP, yes HELP every woman, man & child that is SUFFERING from ECZEMA by persuading them to try the Apple Vinegar!!!!!!!!!!

Is this suitable for a baby? My son is 15months, he has excema mainly on the creases of his legs and arms. But he also itches his scalp.. neck and face..including his eyes.

How suitable would the apple cider vinegar be? Should I not use it on his face..or is that ok as long as I dont get it anywhere near his eyes?

I have a 3 yr old that has severe eczema and all the Doctors/Specialists I've seen keep prescribing medication. At this point I am so sick of my son becoming dependent to the Atarax. It has been 1 week since he's been off the histamine and now I'm having trouble with sleepiness. It's all good to see and try new experiments. Today, I will be trying the Apple Cider Vinegar.

Naz, I'm not a dr. but my son's eczema is 99% cleared up after 5 years of DERMATOLGISTS, Cortizone, Creams and other medicines. I would ck with your Dr. first and see what he says..........
I am a "teacher" and am trying to SPREAD the word that 'apple cider vinegar' works!!!
The National Eczema Foundation contacted me and told me that they DO have the apple cider vinegar on their site. I have NOT been able to find it.
GOOD LUCK and I hope it works for your child.:)

Nan, how has the Eczema cleared up for you son? I'm not really sure what I have... The derm told me it was "Tinea Versicolor". A fungus, but it almost appears to be Eczema as well... I'm trying the Apple Cider Vinegar for the first time tonight... I'm hoping this does this trick as I've been living with this for almost a year.

Has anyone tried soaking in Aveeno colloidal oatmeal baths? I got some yesterday, had two soaks and it FELT wonderful. My eczema hasn't gone away by any means .. but just the relief and soothing feeling was great. I also keep a chilled washcloth in the fridge, and apply that right on top of the most inflamed parts of my rash. Feels great and seems to flatten out the rash bumps. Apple cider vinegar sounds intriguing, too. I had been drinking pitchers of lemon water (also alkaline), but to no avail for my eczema. The rash continues a daily march forward.

My son has gets eczema that is allergen induced. The oatmeal bath works great for him. My daughter, 7, has developed eczema over the past year and nothing seems to work to keep the eczema away. I have Bragg's Apple Cider Vinegar and the book. I'll have to try it however if it stings, I know my daughter won't go for it :(

Hi, my son has also atopic eczema. It was very painful to see the symptons and his skin. He tried everything and we found a natural alternative therapy, through underwear clothing for eczema of the German brand Padycare ( www.padycare.de )
This underwear is made of 100% silver coated textiles with antibacterial effect. Is used for treatments in dermatological section for patients with atopic eczema, psoriasis, fungi or similar skin irritations as well as wounds resulting from burns of first degree or diabetes.
This eczema clothing combined with atopic eczema cream like Trixéra or Lipikar, have improved my son´s life quality, any mine as well. Itchiness dissapeared, it keeps the skin humidity, his skin is stabilized, he can sleep better.
His eczema won´t dissappear because is genetic, but at least my son has a normal and happy life!

Just wanted to to tell you all what cured my sons eczema. He is 3 years old and had eczema on his face for 2 years. We tried everything as all parents do, then I heard about crocodile cream from my parents in South Africa. They sent me a tub and I tried it and believe it or not, within a week my sons face was almost clear and 2 weeks later his face was smooth and clear of any eczema. He has been free of eczema now for almost 4 months. Have a look at this websites eczema page and you can find more info on the cream. www.momforbaby.com .
I hope it will help you all as it did my son.

I use Aquaphor healing ointment a few times a day for my eczema. I think it helps. Also, a good diet too. I try to avoid wheat, dairy, chocolate, caffeine, candy, etc. Drinking lots of water helps too. I heard that if you drink 2 spoons of apple cider vinegar in a half cup of water, it will help your eczema. Drink it 3 times a day. I just purchased my apple cider vinegar at iherb. I hope it works.

As for steroids, I personally think that it will make your eczema worse. Steroids have thinned out my skin so bad. I get flares so easily now. So yeah, stay away from those if you can.

I have suffered from atopic eczema for 30 years. At times it was been so bad that I was asked to function as a case study.. I've always heard that I just have to live with it, apply medical creams etc. Now I've been completely FREE from eczema for two years! Meaning: NO rash at all, anywhere on my body :) I can utilize the 80 % of my energy that went in to itching and scratching and thinking about how to cure my self - on other things! HERE is what I want to share with you.

Forget everything you've heard about oils and how good they are for you. Dont use oil in you cooking, on your salads and stop taking Omega's etc!

My body doesnt get any oil anymore (meaning of course that I do a lot of cooking my self). I do eat healthy: fish, nuts etc. and get "oil" in a natural way.

I also stay away from: garlic, mandarins, pineapples, pink melons and have reduced my intake of pasta. Supply with different types of rice and lentils instead...

It might not be done over night, it might not work for you, but if it does - your life will improve by 80%. I would be really interested to hear how it goes as well.

By now I'm so fine that I dont mind eating other peoples cooking (with oil)- and my body deals with it, as long as it's not more days in a row.

Good luck!

This is SO interesting to hear, Renate. I've suffered from eczema since I was a child but most severely during the past 10 years - all over my body, especially my arms, legs, and face.

I've never heard NOT to take oils before! I've been doing all of the recommended things, such as cutting out dairy, sugar, wheat, etc. plus taking probiotics, fish oil, detoxed the mercury in my system, etc. And yet I have seen almost no improvement at all! It's crazy. The only thing that seems to have provided me with some relief is, sadly, hydrocortisone.

When I saw what you said about no oils, I was intrigued. As I said, I've been taking fish oils caps prescribed by my naturopath and functional medicine doctor for several months now, and I eat my salads with olive oil and avocado and cook my food in butter.

How did you figure out the oil connection for you? I'm curious to see if eliminating them will also for me...

Thanks in advance for your reply!

I am a 47 years old female and never had skin problems (other than acne when I was teen) until about a year and a half ago. I have always been active with my hands in the yard and around the house. My dad is a building contractor and he gets really dry and cracked skin sometimes because of his work but his hands don't itch. I bought a little investment house that needed a lot of work. I had a little dry itchiness on the inside of my thumbs and a few spots about a year before that on a few fingers. After working on the house awhile, I began to have trouble on my palms too. I've been trying to get rid of it every since. I paint, lay flooring, etc. for a living. I wear gloves as much as possible. I've used a cream the doctor gave me, it seems to help to keep it from staying cracked but it is very itchy. I also use over the counter Su eucerin. My left hand doesn't have too much (I'm right handed) but lately a little spot in the middle of my palm in a crease has started bothering me too. A lot of comments on here are about children that have this or those bothered by food allergies but I haven't changed the way I eat. I just started working more with my hands on construction type work this past year and a half. I've done construction work off and on over the years though so unsure why it would pop up now. Any thoughts, suggestions?

Get em Nan! It is a shame that people should have to look so deep after wasting so much time and money and energy on a lost cause. ACV works every time.

I am totally with Nan on this one. Applying ACV to eczema spots helps a lot. Don't want to write the whole story but yes, I would totally recommend drinking and applying ACV.
If smells nasty but if works best.
