I know what you mean. Its horrible, I couldn't sleep at night.

Ask your doc to prescribe you a steroid cream (betaderm)

It fixed my problem in 2 days. I had it extremely severely.

I've had eczema since I was 4 months old (I'm 13 now) so I went to my doctor and he gave me 2 creams called "mometazone" and "triamcinolone" it starts working within 2-3 days. It work more effectively after a shower/bath. Sometimes what I do it's use the creams with wet socks on my arms and legs and go to bed with it. It really works for my eczema and I hope it works for you. Good luck

Hi Veronica, My name is Shanice and I read the post you wrote about your eczema issue. I would like to offer you a sample of a body butter I made specifically for eczema. Other people were given samples and said that their eczema began to show improvement after three to five days of using the cream. This products contains no chemicals just the best essential oils and body butters. If interested please email [email protected]

Mines has been getting worse also. I'm 34 & in the last year it has gotten out of control. I'm still waiting to see the skin specialist. From only getting it on my legs and arms I'm now covered head to toe. In & around my ears, hands, face. I've been off work for over six weeks because of these flare ups, its just not shifting. But hopefully I'll figure out what's causing it, that's the tough part. The amount of chemicals in just the food we eat, E numbers..!(I always thought E was a letter). Just keep fighting the good fight. ;-)

Hi Frances,
It's good to see you're open to natural products. I know a fellow 73 that faught a very severe case of eczema for 23 years. Went to all specialists, took shots, used all kinds of expensive salves to no avail until his daughter-in-law turned him onto Mangosteen. That's been almost 2 years ago and it has never returned. Learn all about it at www.InformationOnMangosteen.info this is some serious all natural health issue fighting Xanthones. I've been using it now for almost 3 years. I have never seen anything like it!

I have been using the Dermasalve range from Skin Salveation. Its NHS FP 10 approved so you might get it on prescription, talk to your doctor. Look at the product on www.skinsalveation.com and print off the fact sheets to take with you.
Ohh! and works great!

You guys really need to research 'red skin syndrome' or 'topical steroid addiction'. A lot of you that have been applying steroids to your bodies are now addicted. These steroids are CAUSING your problems! I am 17 and found itsan.org . It is a non-profit that isnt selling anything, it is there to HELP you. Please if you have tried everything and are giving up on ever getting better go to ITSAN.org . This may save your life, with eczema you are not living.

Hi All,

I hear what you are saying Emaa, but when Steriods are so common and seem like the only option, if you are uneducated about Steriods then they seem like your only option. The best thing to do is do your own research to try and find the CAUSE of your eczema, rather that just 'treat' it.&#9835;I have had eczema since birth and i am now in my early 40's. I understand the steriod cycle i stopped using them well over 20 years ago, all they really do is thin the skin.

I give praise to the All Mighty God, because although i suffered for about 2 years with the worst kind of eczema imaginable, He came through to me and ended my suffering by guiding me to the cure. Thus is the path of the believers. Anyways, yes, i did have eczema, it started on the inside of my elbows, spreading to my arms, legs, stomach, back, neck (that was the worst) and finally my heels. Hell, everywhere on my body itched, i could scratch for hours on end and then cry my eyes out because i thought i would never get cured. I tried 12 dermatologists, all of them failed me, i tried natural herbs, primrose oil, flaxseed oil, but none of those really eased my pain. Hours on end of scratching brought sleepless nights, my skin was red, itchy, and oozing, it was disgusting, having to rub cream on my weird bumpy body, and my thick, thick and red neck was driving me crazy. It was a horrible test, which all thanks to God is now over. So the question is how? Well it wasn't a miracle, but after about 6 weeks, it was gone, and i am sure i know the reason. Here is what you must do and God willing it will be gone: First use Hydrocortisone (0.01%) for some relief and to get rid of the eczema. Of course the eczema WOULD come back because cortisone is not a cure. But use it because when u apply the cure, u will hydrocortisone less and less each week. Therefore apply hydrocortisone twice daily for the 1st week, then once daily for 2nd week, then every other day once, and so on. Here it goes: the cure is Vitamin D3. You heard me, and please BELIEVE me! I searched so much to find this answer, people claimed Cod liver Oil was helping them, so i checked out the ingredients of Cod Liver oil, and Vitamin D3 was a key component. So using vitamin D3, i took 5000 IU (international units) every day for about 6 weeks, after my skin almost cleared i lowered the dose to 3000 IU, and they were soft gel capsules. But Vitamin D3 is not enough. For a time it helped me but not enough because YOU MUST exercise regularly and preferably in the sun to get the Vitamin D3 moving to all parts of your body. I joined a gym and did cardio and heavy weight training, and it goes away slowly if (4-6 weeks) if you are a frequent scratcher (like me) or very quickly you can resist the itch and not scratch. So there you have it, and it worked for several others, so try it and u won't be disappointed inshallah. At first exercise 4 times a week for at least one hour, and at least try to walk 30 minutes in the sun every day. As your skin clears u can reduce exercise to twice a week, but keep on taking the pills unless u see enough sunlight, which u don't. Vitamin D3 has several benefits, i researched them and new evidence says they help in allergies (bingo, eczema!) and sure enough it came through with me. But ONLY with exercise because it must spread through your body. Okay now, i hope i have helped u, leave comments and let me know if i did good with this post, but remember to thank God because he is the one who will cure you. Just believe and apply.
Yours and truly,
A friend who helps.

Hello,
I'm 36 yrs. old and have had eczema my whole life. There is definitely a genetic factor in my case. Unfortunately it seems to be getting worse as I get older.
I agree with "Ken" that my body seems "acidic". I know things like wine, vinegar, tomato and citrus fruits definitely make my eczema worse. I also avoid seafood, chocolate and dairy as much as possible.
I also have learned that stress and a lack of sleep will exacerbate my symptoms.
I do think from years of steroid cream use, my skin has become extremely thin which makes me more prone to developing more itchy rashes.
I have been struggling for the past few months with a very "red" face". I really don't know what to do....
I am now trying this "Goji" and "Mangosteen" juice that someone has reccommended.... No sure if it's that or the warmer weather that has helped my eczema slightly.
Next, I will try to "DETOX" my system...got nothin' to lose at this point.
Hello Monica,
My son is 27 and has had severe excema all his life. You wrote "I have been struggling for the past few months with a very "red" face". " and that is exactly what has happened to his face in the last 4 months. How are you now? Did you ever figure out what is was from?
Thank you.

Hi Sophia, check out the pH Miracle by Dr Robert Young. He explains that the problem is a disturbance, like an imbalance inside your body that causes you to have these rashes. It's not your skin that is the problem, it is your diet. Creams only treat the symptom, not the cause, if you want your eczema to go away forever you have to clean up your diet to be more alkaline.
