Eczema Challenges

What are some of the challenges of living with eczema that others might not recognize or know about?

  1. Please consider reading Fight Smart Against Eczema: The combination of important scientific findings and ancestral knowledge enables symptom-free life Kindle Edition, on Amazon

    1. Hello dear , Thank you for your recommendation. The more we know, the more we can advocate for ourselves. Understanding how our body works is always welcome knowledge. May I ask how you are feeling lately? Sending healing hugs to you, Liz - - Site Moderator

  2. I use the stairwell in my office building to get from each floor. It is a lot safer than using the elevators which have a mind of their own. Plus, I get my days' worth of exercise while working and when I get home I can just chill

    1. Hello dear , I love your daily plan for exercise! Quite efficient and beneficial for your health and wellness! It is like a textbook suggestion! Many thanks for sharing with us. Way to celebrate your journey! Sending healing hugs, Liz - - Site Moderator

  3. I use Sarna anti-itch lotion that you can anywhere (CVS, Walgreens, Target, Walmart) it's usually in the baby care aisle, but it's for anyone with sensitive skin in my opinion and it is a cheaper remedy than a prescription from a doctor. I have a bottle at work too. It helps me a lot. That along with a moisturizer lotion it keeps my skin less itchy throughout my workday and while in transit from work to my home .

    1. Hello , we are so relieved to read that you have continued to find comfort from this over -the-counter remedy. So many of us can benefit from your success. Many thanks for sharing! Sending grateful healing hugs to you, Liz - - Site Moderator

    2. That's wonderful, ! I'm so glad that your dermatologist recommended it to you and that it's been able to help you for so long!!💗 I'll definitely be grabbing this the next time I go shopping! Thank you so much for sharing with us💕 I hope you have a lovely & gentle week! - Abigail, Team Member

  4. I keep moisturizing lotions, sunscreen and Sarna anti-itch lotion at work, home and in my car also with a face cloth that I can wet with water from a gallon jug I keep in my trunk alongside my emergency go bag in the event of an evacuation with a set of my spare clothes, PJs, and medications and first aid kit in my trunk of my car, . I exercise daily. When the weather isn't good, I exercise by going up and down the stairs at home and work, otherwise I walk around three to four blocks in the city of Providence RI when I am at work during the week.

    1. I bought a ready to use first aid kit for my car at CVS during the summertime and I bought a cloth bag to keep my moisturizing lotion, Sarna anti itch lotion and my medications in one place in the event that I have to evacuate quickly and I also have a Medic Alert bracelet and that way the paramedics/police can notify my family while I am receiving medical attention.

    2. Thank you, ! This has all been so helpful!! I'll definitely be making a list for my next CVS run haha😊 I appreciate you taking the time to reply and tell me your routine💕 It helps me get a fresh perspective and I've discovered that there's a few things i need to do now ha 😀 I hope you have a lovely week!!💗 Sending gentle hugs✨ - Abigail, Team Member
