This is very cool to be able to ask the very people who suffer from Eczema what they have tried and what has worked for them. I must admit however that the results may in one way be misleading because if a treatment gets a low number it may have done so more as a result of people not knowing about it or having tried it than it being ineffective.

I am curious also if anyone has tried Listerine Mouthwash on their afflicted areas. One night my own itching was so bad that I couldn't sleep. I felt like I was going crazy with scratching. I finally jumped out of bed and ran into the bathroom and figured I'ld try the first thing I saw in hopes that it might help !!! I grabbed the Listerine and poured it on a cloth and rubbed where the itching was the worst and it was like imediate relief. I went back to bed as comfortable as can be.

Wondering if anyone else has tried that. I'm not a doctor so I can't recommend it and maybe my situation was in some way unique. For the long term, some people may find the alcohol to be drying. There are essential oils in Listerine though that may have been what helped, not sure. My dentist said the Oils in such products do more to kill bacteria than the alcohol when used the regular way.

If you've tried Listerine for your Eczema and it has or hasn't helped, please post. I'm curious if it has worked for others.

My 2 month old daughter has eczema on her head and is constantly trying to itch her head by rubbing it back and forth. I took her to the doctor on Tuesday and he suggested using Listerine on a cotton ball 2x per day. It seems to help her but wears off after a couple hours and she starts itching again. I called the doctor to see if I could put it on more often and I was told only 2x/ day.

I am 35 years old and a long time sufferer of severe eczema. The eczema is on 90% of my body with high levels of inflammation, in other words, the worse case scenario for having eczema. I recently found a solution that have worked excellently on my eczema. I take DORYX( anti-biotic) which is designed to remove bacteria on the skin with ORAL TREATMENT. The bad news is DORYX at this moment cost $1000 for 60 tablets. The good news is that there is a Generic brand which cost significantly less. Take DORYX for 7-9 days , 1 for each day and that's all you need. It's attacking the inflammation from the inside of the body which is HUGE. Then I use Triamcinolone acetonide ointment with Aquafor lotion. The triamcinolone is attacking the eczema from the outside and the Aquafor is locking the medicine and shielding your skin from external forces that might effect the healing of that area. Do those steps and I Guranteed a almost 100% recovery of from eczema.

Tried Listerine this week. Everything starts to dry out and itch relieved. Overdoing makes it worse. Overnight the skin is better, even the worst spots.

I've had eczema for 50 years and it's only worsened over the years. I work outside as a builder and am affected most from spring til fall. my whole body is affected, especially when it;s hot and humid. I've been going to dermatologists most of my life. I've tried every steroid cream and ointment made to no avail. kenalog 40 shots in the summer have worked great but the drs. aren't comfortable giving me them saying they arent good for me. prednisone has worked short term but once I stop my skin is as bad as ever. I've juiced, changed diets and all sorts of naural remedies that haven't done squat. This year I went to an allergist and tsted me for allergies, I'm allergic to dust, grasspollen and ragweed, when I went to him I was having a huge breakout over my rntire body. This is the first summer that I have'nt itche in my entire life. Here's my new regimen: he first tol me wy skin was totally infected with staph and he put me on keflex for 7 days (4 pills a day, 2 in morning and 2 at dinner)after the 7 days i take 1 keflex daily in the morning. 180 mgs of allegra in morning and evening. i take my showers in the evening after work and he has me fill a bucket with a gallon of water and add 3 teaspoons of bleach to it, I themn uae a washcloth to and wash wyself over entire body except hair and let stand for 5 to 10 minutes. i use triamcinilone cream sparingly.on my old flare up spots occasionally. I have been itch free for 6 weeks and my skin has never been this good. So far this summer has beem hot and humid... a recipe for disaster for me. Not this year. I wish I had gone to this guy years ago and am down on dematologists who seem to only want to combat it with stronger and stronger meds.

I have and still do use a product called CapriClear. It's a natural spray-on moisturizer that helps reduce the redness and the itch that I suffer from. Give it a try, I highly recommend it.

I've had eczema since I can't remember when , every time I see some cream ,oil , or ointment for sale I buy it hoping it will solve my problem ,
One day I put Listerine on it it felt better Right away then my Daughter who is a registered nurse came to visit , right away she said what's that smell , so I told her , and she said oh that will dry out you skin , so I didn't do that anymore when she was around but. Now I put Listerine on then follow up with a no scented bath oil it won't cure it but what a reliefs it gives me .

My eczema flairs up when I am stressed. A friend recommended Electric Body Skin Elixir because of the colostrum in it. www.electricbody.com.au . It has helped me and helped my scarring as well

I had the type of eczema you get on your hands. Can't think of the name of it. Starts with a D i believe. Had it for 15 years. Used the steroid creme to try and keep it in check. I started taking gardening seriously a few years back. Growing russian kale organically. Using the Back to Eden method of gardening. Eating the kale right out of the garden to get maximum benefit. Mainly as a cancer prevention measure. After 2 years of eating a little kale out of the garden every day my eczema went away. Stop using the creme about 4weeks ago. What a pleasant surprise that was. Apparently the kale gave me something i was missing in my diet that allows my body to resist the eczema.

I had eczema since I was 2 years old, 39 now.. Tried almost everything, nothing worked. My eczema is almost gone just because I decreased at the maximum eating refined sugar included aspartam. It s very difficult, not having soft drinks, chocolate, sweets, hidden sugar like ketchup or hamburger... But the reward is priceless, it starter to disapear after 30 days, without any treatment or expensive cream. This was the cheapest and most efficient treatment I have ever done. Phama and doctors will hate this treatment. But you have to be ready for that, as it is life changing.
