Eczema treatment

  • By ismeleso94

    Hello, for now, I’ve been having eczema for 3 years. I have eczema mostly on my legs, arms and belly. For me, it was really hard to accept and to get to find what treatment actually worked for me. By far, the treatment that has worked the best is foderma treatment. I really recommend it to you!

    Hi ismeleso94,

    I am so sorry to hear about the eczema you have on your legs, arms and belly 🙁 The arms and legs are common places to be affected for adults (https://atopicdermatitis.net/across-lifespan/). This condition can certainly be difficult to accept, and looking for treatment that helps is no easy feat.

    I am so happy to hear that you were able to find foderma treatment. It is important to remember that treatments work for everyone differently, and I’m glad you found what helps you! Thanks for sharing about it with us here.

    Best,
    Sarah (AtopicDermatitis.net Team Member)

    I have been suffering from eczema of mine since I was 24, I’ve been taking lots of medicine prescribed by my doctor but still I’m not cured. I’m beginning to lose hope until, one day I’m browsing thru the Internet and reading articles related on my condition and I saw this article about marijuana, according to this article it can cure my eczema and I want to try it. Does anyone already try this kind of method? Can someone give me a good advice??

      Hi Louisa,

      Sorry to hear you’ve been dealing with eczema since you were 24 and that you’ve been losing hope after taking lots of medicine. So many others in the community have been through the same and you are not alone. I’m glad you have been searching for alternative treatment routes online. I do hope someone in the community may be able to weigh in about using marijuana for eczema. I have heard some members of the community mention using CBD balm for their skin. In the meantime we do have an article which talks about the risks and benefits of cannabis with more information: https://atopicdermatitis.net/living/risks-benefits-cannabis/.

      I hope this is helpful to you.
