I am 13 going on 14, and I have had eczema like Veronica since I was born! I get bullied and it itches! When they put me on prednisone it goes away, but then when the treatment is over, it comes back fighting! I also have psoraisis.

Hi Courtney, read the post I posted previous to yours, and I posted a few other times throughout this thread as well if you'd like to read them. Creams and pills will not solve your problem, you must fix the imbalance inside your body through cleansing and diet change.

The "Cure" for eczema is simple, as for ALL "Dis-eases". You're body is simply too acidic, you're polluted, literally.
You have been purposely sickened by pharmecutical and food companies in order for them to profit off of your sickness.
How many times have you been sick and the doctor says OK Mr. JD, you've got the flu so the best thing to do is to avoid dairy products and any solids etc, right?
Why? Because Dairy products, MEAT, Yeast and especially corn products are EXTREMLY ACIDIC and they will kill you, all of these foods are like CANCER themselves.
It's a slow death, along with those foods you also need to avoid Coffee, Tea, smokes, alcohol, ALL DRUGS.
Google search "pH Miracle" it will SAVE YOUR LIFE, if need be saving, as it has saved mine.
as far a natural treatments, Dermavir has been the most effective for me.

I have had eczema for 18 yrs. I have had 3 really bad bouts with it. I have learned over the years what works the very best.....
STEROID SHOTS for sure if it is severe. I finally went to an outstanding doctor in this field and she took one look at me and said 'you need a steroid shot'. She said the shots don't hurt you but may have side effects if you get them A LOT more than you should, but under a doctor's care there was zero to worry about she said. In two weeks my eczema was at bay and shortly after that it was 95% gone in about a month. I could sleep month after month with ZERO ITCHING. She said anytime I have a bad outbreak like that, to come and see her and she would give me another shot. The shots last about 6 months. After it wore off, I just broke out normal here and there some, but was clearly manageable, and its been 14 months since I had the shot. It was a life saver!!!! My brother in law has it really really bad and he got the shot first and told me about it. I never heard of them for eczema and no doctor ever helped me or told me about that. It helped him beyond belief. My doctor was shocked that no other doctor even mentioned giving me a steroid shot when it got bad.
There is help out there for the severely infected. Go get a steroid shot NOW.
I use Eucerin cream to stop the itch and it has a coolant in the cream that makes your skin cold upon application which soothes eczema on contact. I also always have an electric fan in my family room where I sit the most and by my bed at night. Cool air circulating on your body is extremely soothing to eczema and lessons the itch. Taking 1 to 2 benedryl pills in the evening do wonders, and you feel a lot less itchy in the morning. I also use a 5% strength steroid cream when I first break out and itch and it helps a lot. I don't have to use it all the time. If you use anything less than 5%, it won't work. Cortizone over the counter cream is a joke. So, if you go get a steroid shot (demand it), get eucerin cream at walmart, and 5% steroid perscription cream from your doctor and benedryl, you will see a HUGE IMPROVEMENT. I don't have to worry about bad outbreaks anymore.

I have had eczema since I was born and used every Lotion and potion, the only thing that completely cured my eczema was zemaphyte an experimental Chinese herbal tea treatment , provided through my Dermatologist in NHS, the government wouldn't fund it so wasn't available after that as there weren't enough eczema sufferers benefitting from it??

I have just recently come across Dead Sea salts (you can get in holland and Barrett)I was skeptical but it really does relieve itching and your skin feels moisturised (unbelievably) and soft. My routine at the moment is light treatment 3 times a week at hospital, bath every night in Dead Sea salts and moisturise, moisturise, moisturise, if bad patches ichthopaste with bandages on,very little elocon (steroid)in places I can't put ichthopaste I.e back, protopic on face (rarely). Shower in the morning with balneum oil, moisturise again with double base dayleve, aquamol or epaderm oh and take antihistamines 1 in morning, 1 at lunch and 2 before bed.

It may take a while but it's about finding what is best for your skin as they can be so different. Keep going to the doctors asking to try different things that you find out about because they won't tell you! ESP if you have had to pay for your prescriptions since 16 like me I get the prepayment cert at 10.40 per month for 10 months.

Hi, im 13 atm. And ever since i was born i have had eczema. i have been teased a lot and have been hurt inside but i guess i have just put up with it.
I am suffering with it EVERYWHERE and i do mean everywhere, my legs, kneese especially, thighs, butt, stomach, back, shoulders, neck, chest, head and since 2 weeks ago my face. I feel so alone although i know others suffer with it. I dont have any more confidence and i just feel like crying. No one else in my family suffers from eczema only my cousin but hers is really mild. I feel so itchy and sore. People used to say i would grow out of it but i dont know myself.
I am a totally normal girl if it wasnt for my eczma. I havent gone to the beach or swimming pool for about a year mainly because my skin feels horrible after.
Sorry that my post got so long!
I wish the best for all of you with eczema!!
Good luck

I agree with Ken about making changes to one's diet to ease the pain and itching of eczema and fighting other illnesses that are similar.

I've had chronic eczema since I was a toddler. I'm 51 now. The only relief I've gotten is from changing my eating habits, reducing greatly my sugar intake, etc.

I did try a cleansing program that I ordered online and it worked amazingly well to kick-start my recovery, but paying attention to the foods you're eating in the long run is such a help. Now I steer clear of any suggestion to use steroid ointments, etc. as these have only caused problems for me in the long run (thinning of skin, etc.)

Good luck to you.

"The pH miracle" is absolute snake oil. It's nonsense. While it's true that cancer cells cannot survive in a basic environment NEITHER CAN ANY OF YOUR BODY'S CELLS!
Read the first page of the book - anyone with a general knowledge of science will call "bullshit" nearly immediately.
Side note : You cannot change the pH of your blood - even "Dr." Young admits this in his book. He then goes on to contradict himself, but that's another matter.
Your best bet is a stronger steroid, or an immuno-modulator. I know neither of these solutions are ideal, but don't waste your time and money with the various snake oils that people will try and sell you. I have tried all the various "natural" treatments. They either had no effect, or a negative effect. Unfortunately, the only thing that controls my eczema is hydrocortisone. Believe me, I don't want to use it anymore either. It's unfortunate that so many people suggest quack products - it makes it tough to actually find an alternative solution to steroids and dangerous immuno-modulaors.
