Thanks so so much for passing along the article! I am just curious as to why my eczema itches when it is moisturized. I now wear latex free gloves 24/7 b/c it keeps the moisture in and also protects my hands. I even wear them in public now. So, it iches while the gloves are on and there defintely not dry. I am going to get porridge oats and try that. I use vitamin e, castor oil and shea butter as moiturizers. I take zinc now but I'm not sure how to crush them, they are soft, not tablets. I can't have my hair touching my neck or ears because they hurt. It's also driving me nuts to close my arms due to it in my creases. I had a revelation this morning. The eczema got really severe when we got our new frig and I've been drinking alot of the water from the water line from the fridge. It's supossed to be filered but wondering if the town water has chemicals in it that I am reacting to and maybe it's not 100% filtered. We are currently doing a mold test now b/c the common denominator to all 3 of my illness (asthma, allergies, eczema) is mold. SO far no mold is showing up in the dish. Thanks so much!
