Aloe Vera based products and eczema

My life with eczema started in early childhood when I went through many specialists.However, the only thing they suggested to do is take antihistamine tablets and apply steroid creams when eczema flares up.Also, I was told to watch the food I was eating because it might have been linked as well. Doctors did some allergy tests with me but unfortunately none of the substances I was tested for appeared positive. So I didn't get any clear explanation what might be triggering flare-ups. Anyway, I continued living with it with some major flare-ups trying to combat them with prescribed medications. In early teenage years it seemed to be ok, didn't have any big 'attacks' but it didn't continue for long. Last year at school which was very stressful time eczema appeared on hands and to be fair it didn't look nice at all. I didn't even want to apply steroid creams as it would make already delicate skin on hands even thinner,thus,try my best to moisturize my hands as much as possible. Obviously the result was minimal and I knew that now the only way to get things better is to see a doctor and take tablets. I was happy with the improved condition with my hand eczema after the treatment but it didn't last long. It came back when I was at uni. Furthermore, on top of this I got boils..
Just a month ago I came across one company which production is based on Aloe Vera Gel. They have products for internal and external use. So I started drinking Aloe Vera Gel and using
a lotion which is enriched with Bee Propolis which has anti-inflammatory feature, in addition to Aloe Vera gel and then just using moisturizer with collagen and ellastin of the same company and I do see visible improvements in my hand eczema it's gone when I use this products,if I don't use them for couple of days the redness on hands comes back :(
I would be happy to answer any questions you have about Aloe Vera and eczema treatment using the products of the plant.
