Thanks for your post, and I so totally agree with it. I've read articles saying, "Eczema is a chronic disease," or "Eczema is an incurable condition." Well, it certainly is chronic or incurable if we keep eating the foods that we're allergic or sensitive to that are causing the eczema. We can have smooth, soft, carefree skin by finding out what we're allergic to and eliminating it from our diets. For me, it's soy.
