    Eczema treatment

    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!

    Bella’s Blended Moisturizer

    Bella from Facebook shared her recipe for moisturizer that she uses on her 5 year old. She wishes you success in finding the right formula to help you and your little ones get long lasting relief!

    Use 4-6 tablespoons of raw shea butter (comes already mixed with the olive oil and lavender), melt in double broiler.

    Add 1 teaspoon pure 100% tea tree oil and 1 teaspoon pure vitamin E oil. Can also add 2 tablespoons YORO Manuka honey or HoneySkin cream.

    Allow to sit in the refrigerator to harden and use liberally.

    Thanks, Bella! Feel free to share your experience trying this recipe in the comments below.

    Itchy skin can feel like one of the worst symptoms of atopic dermatitis/eczema, if not the worst.

    Derma Kure Creme

    I found a creme called Derma Kure in Guatemala last year and it is the best treatment I have found so far for my dermatitis on my hands.
    It is a bio-identical creme made in South Africa and as wondering if anyone has found here in the US or Europe as I have emailed the company and haven’t heard anything yet about stockists.
    I’ve tried everything steroid creme etc and this absolutely works – anyone else heard of or used this.

    Allergic to Ceraphil and A-Derma

    Hey. I just recently signed up for this forum. I am a 26 year old male and I have been hit pretty hard with my Atopic eczema for the past couple of weeks. I have normally been using a very mild Archiv Creme, which is basically just a fat creme based on Liquid paraffin and Petroleum jelly. It normally works wonders and I have experienced no problems what so ever. Then a couple of weeks ago, due to the hars weather my skin just kinda gave up and using the Archiv creme has not been sufficient even when using Mildison or Cortison creme to keep down the rash and swelling. I have tried 3 different cremes since then, But I have severe allergic reactions to using them. I have tried “Cetaphil restoraderm body moisturizer”, “A-derma exomega control cream” and “PSO Specialcréme no 14” I use the creme for 2 days and suddenly I’m covered in red “pimples” it’s like I get goosebumbs on my entire body + a terrible rash, when I wash my body and switch back to The old creme, it gets “Normal” hours. Please if anyone can suggest a wondercreme that will work as good as my old did in the summer, please speak up 🙂

    Ear Eczema

    I grew up with eczema on and off and “sensitive ” skin and some old time treatments from dermatologists which would be questionable by today’s standards (gentian violet and even x-rays). For several years I fought seborreic dermatitis. More recently at 66 I have ear eczema. It is cyclical- itch reddening, thick skin, weeping. My dermatologist recommended cortisone cream or otic drops. These do not totally get rid. I try not to stay on cortisone. Even with I have breakouts. I have noticed several times following the weeping skin, I get ear infections and the last 3 bad ones, I had vertigo. I am careful about soaps and lotions. Perhaps food allergies? Is there any oil or treatment to get away from cortisone which doesn’t work?
