Hi - I just posted some thoughts on two other threads regarding eczema and NAET - we have had a long battle with severe eczema and have won! I wanted so share what we have learned and hope it works for you as well --
In our case it is all food and environmental allergies - we were able to rid my ds of ALL of it in over 1 1/2 year of NAET treatments to cure over 50 allergies -
It was so worth it --
And yes, if you supress the eczema enough with topical steroids, it eventually will manifest itself as asthma - the immune system really wants to get your attention that it is NOT going to continue being bombarded with all the foods,chemicals,etc it can't deal with...
So - try www.naet.com
- I reccomend the bookm titles something like "Say Goodbye to your Children's Allergies" - also, read case histories and find a practitioner near you
Try a barrier cream - petroleum based calendula worked for us to keep itching to a minimum
Long baths actually make it worse - we bathed 1X week for over a year! Especially if there is chlorine in your water...
Sudocreme is a cream out of England that also helped - any friends in Europe? Or try to get on the internet.
Try to eliminate some of the worst food offenders, and see if that helps - dairy, bananas, shellfish, strawberries, citrus, chocolate (our list went on forever, but these are a good start) Also - dust,mold,detergents,creams, anything smelly,food color,processed food are culprits - it can get discouraging if you look at the whole list - but just start with one things every three days so you can be sure of what it is.
Do whatever you can to boost flax seed oil or cod liver oil intake to build a strong immune system
Good luck and let me know if I can answer any specific questions for you...
