Should I give up on this eczema? - Page 2

post #21 of 26

Growing up my mom actually tried organic natural products, she also had me on a restricted diet, non of which help control my eczema the way Aquaphor and the medication I occasionally use has.  My eczema was extremely bad, and would still be bad if I don't follow my regimen.  There is still no cure for eczema but with the regimen I use my skin stays healthy, comfortable and normal.  A few days ago my mom asked me to come to her work because a client of hers has a son with severe eczema.  I went to my moms work and met her client and met her son and his eczema was in terrible condition.  I went and bought all the products I use and gave it to the lady, she went to the doctors to get the medication that I use.  That was two weeks ago, she recently came to see my mom and her son's condition has greatly improved, she said that this is the first time he has been able to sleep well through the night:)  I'm going to track his progress to see how effective my regimen works for him because so far in only two weeks his skin has greatly improved.  Aquaphor is nothing like vaseline, vaseline is irritating, Aquaphor isn't.

When I eliminated dairy with DD it took a full 6 weeks to get out of my system and hers. Her reflux stopped and her eczema went away at that 6 week mark.

Good luck.

Aquaphor may not be exactly like vaseline, but it's still a petroleum product.

I will try to link to a book called the eczema cure:

I don't have time to go into everything that we had tried or how horrible the eczema  was on my daughter. But, after trying everything imaginable and 6 different types of doctors. We discovered Bentonite Clay. She took a bath in it for 30 minutes every day for a week. Then went to every few days. Then once a week. The time between the clay baths stretched out longer and longer until at this point it has been 2 months since she required a clay bath. 

Please consider trying it. Here is a link so you can read more. http://www.bulkherbstore.com/Bentonite-Clay-Powder?s=bentonite%20clay&id=kmAhtQr6

I didn't get a chance to read through the entire post but have you tried lye soap?
