how were you cured? what type of eczema did you have? i have, or should i say had a very sever case of dishydrotic eczema - basically my hands would peel and get raw and inflammed during the winter months. it was very painful and extremely embarassing. i have cut all meat out of my diet 2 years ago and have been 99% better. only 2 flare-ups in the last 2 years, and one happened after eating 4 bites of a steak i couldn't resist tasting. i now live on fish, veggies, and pastas....it's not easy, but it's worth it!
