Really resourceful article, a lot of good information for who is struggling with this same issue.

And Also I have created an infographic that depicts the reality of eczema supplements research. We analysed various sources of research studies to paint a picture of eczema remedies and supplements that are popular versus the ones that have been proven to be beneficial in relieving eczema symptoms.
http://eczematracker.com/whatworksforeczema.php

Clobetasol (Dermovat from GSK) cream worked on me. Have used once or twice a week. Immediate effect. Because it is classed strongest cortesteroids i try to use it as little as and as rarely as possible. Looking at graph it also seemed most effective treatment noticed by others. Side effects is weight gain (Higher appetite) and puffy face. Dizzines sometimes noticed after use.

Moisturizers help. Light therapy helps but does not give permanent cure.

Lighter cortesteroids help but seem to lack the efficiency in difficult eczema.

I have had Dishydrotic Ezemia on my right palm and fingers for 25 years. Recently, I eliminated all mineral supplements (Calcium, magnesium, zinc and multi-vitamins) and added a broad spectrum probiotic. The blisters all healed and I have been free for a few weeks.

I surmise that I have leaky gut and an allergy to the minerals. The probiotic heals the gut and elimination of the minerals reduces the blister reaction.

I have tried everything over the years - this seems to be working.

My daughter has had very bad eczema flareups in the past. We tried everything and nothing provided relief beyond a few hours. A friend recommended we use an Arbonne baby product- wow. It was great. 2 years later and we still use it. It reduces the redness and takes the itch away almost immediately. I came across a blogger who has eczema and also tried the same products. She loves the results. I am attaching a link to the review that also contains a link to the site to order. Thought it was too good not to share. Good luck. http://mungleville.com/2014/06/14/arbonne-baby-care/

anyone with pompholx or dishydrotic eczema (hands and feet)?

I cured eczema by avoiding NIGHTSHADES

I finally found a cure by realizing that Eczema is a reaction to certain foods or chemicals. I’ve had eczema for as long as I could remember and it wasn’t until recently that I figured out NIGHTSHADES (peppers, eggplant, tomatoes…) were the source of my skin irritations. Since then, I've been eczema-free.

Start by eliminating certain foods after a rash occurs so that you can figure out what to avoid. I wish a doctor had told me that simple truth a long time ago, but then again, most are in the business of making money, not giving permanent cures.

A lot, if not all things can be healed naturally. To cure it, it’s not about putting ointments or shea butter on it, those only mask the symptoms- with eczema, it’s simply about eliminating substances you react to.

I'm 62, and I started having extremely itchy eczema lesions about 7 or 8 years ago. The lesions only went away (temporarily) when I used prescription steroid cream. I'm also very food-sensitive and gave up dairy and grains many years ago.

Intermittent fasting seems to have cured my eczema. I fasted twice a week on water. Each fast lasted all day until the following morning. I did this for about 5 weeks. The eczema lesions just peeled off one at a time and were gone. I haven't fasted for over a week now, and the lesions haven't come back (yet).

There are several studies from Japan (in mice and humans) and at least one study from the American Cancer Society (in mice) that supports these same results. Intermittent fasting apparently suppresses T-cell activity.

Other studies in Japan have found persimmon leaf extract (taken orally) to be effective, but I haven't tried this.

Last week I started taking a vegan source of EPA + DHA (from Dr. Fuhrman), since I've probably been deficient. I was told this might also help.

Clobetasol is misspelled. Creams dry out dry skin even further. Ointments are preferred for improved absorption, even though they are greasy - they work MUCH better than creams, especially in the dry winter weather. Always wet the skin for 3-5 minutes before applying ointments.

I've been trying to cure my eczema for about 7 years and finally have it in remission. What worked for me: no gluten, no dairy, no alcohol (really causes bad flare ups unfortunatley!), and 10K IU vitamin D daily...eczema free for past 3 months with no topicals needed

I have been taking part in a Helminthic Therapy trial with Hook Worm. I have had two doses of Hook Worm now over a period of about 6 months. My Allergys and Excema have very slowly improved. Right now my skin is clear of excema and I can sleep undisturbed aswell as go for a swim without embarrassment. My allergic reactions still occur but are much much less severe and still improving.

Re: Itch — Tried a myriad of creams and everything from homeopathy through to mega steroids. I get the best results with keeping off dairy products ( I love a good strong cheddar :-( or stilton ). I use coffee mate in tea or coffee as I am a bit of a tea adict. I had a water softener installed which help with baths plus I'm very careful what soaps I use but this tends to vary with my friends who suffer as well. Clothing is very important, I used to wear silk based underwear but I found it was impregnated with a pretty nasty pesticide and it was a really bad fit. I now wear under wear with a cotton, silver seaweed mix that I buy from a company in Portugal. Its very soft, really reduces the itching and scratching and definately seems to keep the redness and swelling down.

Re: Avoid problem foods — I had eczema for a year and a half, was at the point where i couldn't leave the house, except to go to work. I had no social life and was feeling depressed.
I tried conventional medicine (didn't work for me), cut out all sugar (great for clearing up pimples), saw practitioners from every alternative medical field imaginable but no cure.

Finally I decided to cut out all wheat/grains. Within two weeks my eczema cleared up enough that I was no longer scratching and I could go out in public again. This led me to understand that it was my digestion that was the root cause of the eczema (the wheat was simply causing digestive aggrivation). By chewing food slowly, not eating when stressed and making sure I avoided foods that I knew were problematic for me, my eczema has now totally cleared up. My leg hair is also growing over the bald patches on my legs where the eczema was most severe.

I have noticed that when I do have foods that irritate my digestive tract, some parts of my skin, where the eczema was previously, will get slightly rough, but eventually smoothes out again.

Re: Moisturize frequently — This is key, but you need to find a good moisturizer that works for *you*. I've tried most of the popular brands that are available near me, and some cause more problems than they solve for my eczema. I won't mention brands I've had issues with (as companies tend to get unhappy when you do that) but I'll mention two that I think are very solid. Vaseline's "Cocoa Butter Deep Conditioning" (brown bottle) is a pretty good one. But my favourite (in terms of effectiveness/comfort) is Kiss My Face's unscented "Olive & Aloe". If your skin feels tight after shaving or a hot shower, this stuff feels like a skin-gasm.

Re: Desoximetasone — This stuff is great for really bad flare-ups (aka "pink lizard hands"). Prolonged use (more than 5-7 days) doesn't seem to have any significant effect on my eczema, but the first few days help to get it under control. Perhaps it's diminishing returns or a maximum effect it can have, but I stop after the flare-up is done and return to just using moisturizers - partially to save the cream for later, but also because of the potential negative side-effects of prolonged use of any corticosteroid.

Side note: it also seems to help speed the healing of cuts when applied directly to the wound, but discuss this with your healthcare provider, as I cannot speak about the safety of introducing this cream directly into an open wound.

Re: Bathe in mild chlorine bleach solution — Very effective at reducing outbreaks. I experience 90+% reduction within 2-3 days and visible changes overnight. I get the outbreaks on my face and so use a snorkel in the bathroom sink. It's a little weird and awkward, but what the hey, eczema on the face sucks big time. Generally I soak my face for 15 min in a mild bleach water solution every other day for about a week. It leads me to believe I have some sort of skin infection causing my eczema so I have wondered about the effectiveness of other sterilizers but never tried anything else.

Re: Itch — rashes and redness

Re: Cracked skin — Does anyone else have dry cracked skin that feels like its on fire?

Re: Eliminate grains and dairy — this cured it for me, no more steroids or annoying daily moisturizing. grains (see gluten) and dairy are inflammatory foods for most people. if you have eczema, you have some serious inflammation going on. ingested fish oil really helps too

Re: Avoid sudden temperature changes — I made a point to wear gloves in cold, dry weather to protect the skin on my hands.

Re: Avoid detergents or harsh soaps — Certain soaps seem to tear my skin apart!
