Remedies for Eczema

January 13, 2010

For eczema on the body, try putting a couple of cups of rolled oats in the sock of a panty hose and put it in your bath. This pretty much cured my niece's eczema and we had tried every cream and ointment on the market.

My young granddaughter has bad eczema on the back of her legs behind the knees. Has anyone a remedy that will help? Is it due to the jeans being too tight on her legs. It is also, due to synthetic materials.

Has it been diagnosed as eczema? I can understand that a rash or irritation would occur if the legs of her jeans are quite tight. I have noticed that a lot of the jean legs are fitting tighter and to me they look uncomfortable. Of course at my "ripe" old age, I'm all for as much comfort as I can get, lol.

Try Cetaphil Lotion. It can be purchased at Wal-Mart.

One of my sons had this. He could only wear cotton clothing. To this day if he needs a stitch in a cut, he has to ask for silk because the nylon causes a severe reaction.

I have eczema. I was wondering if you can use cocoa butter to help with eczema. I researched it on the internet but they wouldn't say what type of cocoa butter to buy. Can cocoa butter help with eczema? If so, what type of cocoa butter can i use?



Thanks,

I use Aveeno hydrocortizone 1%. I used to use elidel, but the Aveeno costs less (even with insurance) and works just as well, for me anyway.

I have used Relief Cream for about 5 years now. for my Ecema. It has Tree Tee Oil, and Aloe Vera in it. It is non perscription, and works better than anything I have tried. The perscription ones seem to make my skin thinner

Evening Primrose oil topically. They have it at vitamin shoppe. You can also take it orally. A need for essential fatty acid is a cause of eczema.

I have had eczema for 42 years. I think I've had every treatment under the sun including perscription creams, soaks and even ultra violet rays. My excema was confined to my hands which was a nightmare. Even to pick up a cup, my hands would crack and bleed. The only thing that worked was steroids which couldn't be taken often. In desperation, I tried a cream that I found on the internet. It was offered for free with just the cost of shipping (samples). Cocoa butter never worked for me either. This cream is called yu-be and has been used in Japan for multiple things. It worked so well, that I am now a distributor. here is the link, you can search the site for a retailer near you. www.yu-be.com If you can't find someone, you can contact me at grammiecracker AT aol.com I think you can get the trial sizes on the site. Good luck, Daine

I can't attest to this but I've also heard that you can use coconut oil for eczema. I recently purchased a small canister of some at WalMart for a couple of bucks over on the food aisle where the oils are. It can be ingested as well as used for cooking but is also supposed to be good for the skin. It comes in a solid form but will melt from the heat of your hand into a liquid form. I tried a little on my hands and they felt soft as a baby's bottom and not at all greasy. Might be worth a try.

I looked up Excema on this site and seen a lot of helpful suggestions, I do have one question of the users of Noxema, do you just rub it in or do you wash the affected area with it? I have tried several things for my eczema and just bought the Noxema to try.

My grandmother had this so bad that it was from both knees to the heels of her feet, around both legs for many, many years until she was given instructions NOT to apply soap, but to just sit in a tub of warm, not hot, water that is soapy from the washing of the rest of the body. Then she was to use Hydorgen Perioxide when dry. Then after that was dry, she was to blow dry it and use Cortizone
cream just on the affected areas, applying with cleaned hands, which can now be purchased over the counter, provided there are no open sores that have gotten infected with bacteria. In that case, treat JUST THE SORES with Neosporin, but the remainder with Cortizone (Corticosteroid) 2-5%, I believe.

Bathe with mild Aveeno soap three times a week only, unless you work in soil or sweat a lot. If not, get some sun and make certain to add multi vitamins and minerals to your diet, along with some
Zinc for your skin, according to Whole Foods' Aternative medicine information. Do not scratch with your nail, but through a clean paper towel, and as little as possible. Do not cover unless absolutely necessary. The Cortizone cream should work, along with the mild Aveeno soap, designed specifically for skin disorders. I have Eczema in my ears and nose
that flair up often, but I cannot afford RX meds for it, so I just use Hydrogen Perioxide which does a good job untiil the next flair up. I suspect this disorder has something to do with dust/soil because my grandmother was, and I am, in the garden a lot.

Do not use body soaps, hand lotions, oils, or the like, until you have tried this regime. Good luck and God bless and help you. : )

I had a mild case of excema years ago. Although it was mild, it was very persistant. I washed my face with noxema before bed one night and by the morning it was gone. No need to rub it in just wash with it.

I have a question about the users of Noxema. Do you just wash the area with the Noxema or do you rub it in and leave it on? I too have tried all the cortisone creams and even prednisone (which I had a bad reaction to) so I am willing to try anything that is not going to thin my skin or drive my crazy.

Thanks!
