Thanks, Ted, for passing along your knowledge. It's interesting that eczema is caused by a skin fungus. I'm a fungal magnet, so that explains a lot. I've found what clears up my eczema over night is a remedy I learned from others in this forum: Doctors Defense Zen Fusion Creme. It clears up my eczema over night, and it will stay away for months. I'm wondering now if it works so well because the herbs in it act as an anti-fungal. The other thing that I've found helps, particularly in winter, is Eucerin Aquafor.
