Thank you for that I needed to hear about other ways to keep my eczema from flare-ups around the times when it's hot outside.I use coconut oil on my body because that helps keep it moisturized.I also use peroxide too especially when the blisters arise on my feet on top of my feet.
Maybe for the sake of comparison you should check out Utopia-Silver 's new and improved silver aloe skin gel. Here is how they describe it:
All-Natural soothing Silver Aloe Gel 2 oz or 4 oz made with Colloidal Silver and 15X Organic Aloe Vera Concentrate with Texas Juniper Essential Oil. This new and advanced product provides the germ killing power of Colloidal Silver , the healing properties of Organic Aloe Vera, the antibacterial properties of Texas Juniper Oil and Orange Oil.
I haven't tried it yet, but if it is an improvement over their previous silver aloe gel (and it sounds like it should be) then it should be really good.
yes i have some eczema on my back. lately, my hand have become very dry, with"patches". when i wash my hands in hot hot water, the itching becomes quite intense. only wiping hand on towel stops the itch.
I learned a lot about probiotic, and I am still learning... 1 capsule of probiotic contain the equivalent of probiotic as if you were filling this capsule with fermented food. Which mean that 1 tsp of yogurt would be equivalent to 7 capsules of probiotic. But, when we eat yogurt, we usually take a small bowl of it, which would be the equivalent of a whole bottle of probiotic! Probiotic stay in your guts and what is not use is flush out with your next bowel movement. Also, there is no way to know what is the % of the living probiotic that is in a capsule. Probiotic living micro-organism who need Sugar to fed on and liquid to hydrate and stay alive. Which make me wonder when they are trapped in a capsule for months if they are still alive? That may explain why some people won't see result taking probiotic in capsules. My suggestion is to take fermented food (yogurt, Kefir, Saukraut...) on a regular basis. That way you will be sure the probiotic are alive to do their work in your guts and you will take way more than what you would be taking by taking a capsule at a time.
If your doctor said don't put the steroid cream on your face, I wouldn't because of the strength of the ingredients, (I have an allergic reaction to numerous steroid and other creams due to their ingredients), so I have to be careful what I use on my skin. I am allergic to the preservative and specific chemicals used in creams, so in a way I can understand what you may be going through. I have also heard many people having used the cream for so long, as soon as they stop using it there may be effects to the system. Steroids may cure the problem, but have adverse effects in the long term as well, and don't cure the cause. If you could, I would ask if you have to take this for a specific amount of time, don't go over, and if you have any effects, rashes, or it doesn't work, go back to the Dr.
I don't know your problem, and I am no expert, but I would suggest going to a qualified health shop if the cream doesn't work, for a natural cure, or go back to your doctor. But I presume that you will be using the steroid cream over other areas not your face, don't use it on your face, it could have damaging effects, especially if the Dr has said don't use it.
I just use pure Aloe Vera gel from a plant I have in the conservatory, and now and again pure, organic coconut oil out of a jar, from head to toe. Antibacterial and Moisturising, (but coconut is a dry moisturiser).
What I would ask is, what do you want to use steroid cream on your face for? when they are plenty other creams, or is there a problem?
Great for adults with eczema patches. We've found that with fewer baths, and putting this on while my brother is still damp out of the tub he hasn't had an eczema flair up in over a year. Wonderful product!
