The Importance Of Treating the Root Cause

So today, I’m going to talk about the importance of treating the root cause of eczema — as opposed to the symptoms. Eczema is a HUGE condition. An estimated 35 million Americans alone are currently affected by eczema or atopic dermatitis, and this number is growing in many other countries. For most of these individuals, this is a chronic condition that requires a constant cycle of various medications, creams, and steroids in an attempt to […]

Bleach Baths For Eczema

I wanted to talk about an interesting remedy for eczema that’s gotten a lot of press. In 2009, a study was published in Pediatrics about using bleach to treat eczema in children. Yes, they took the very same chemical found in regular household Clorox, diluted it in a bathtub full of water, and then bathed children suffering from eczema as young as 6 months in it.

Eliminating Eczema Through Diet

Of all the topics I talk about on my blog, this one is probably the most powerful regarding how to get rid of eczema: diet. Diet is a controversial topic within eczema.

Topical steroid creams for eczema

So in my first post I talked a little about steroid creams and how dangerous they can be. I want to talk about this a little more. Steroid creams have been used to treat inflammatory conditions like eczema for several decades. And they’re extremely effective… at least in the short term. Within a few days (or sometimes even before that) of use symptoms can reduce dramatically. The problem comes with long term, continuous use. Within […]

My quest to getting rid of eczema: remedies that work, ones that don’t, and ones that are downright dangerous.

Eczema SUCKS. Anyone who suffers from eczema (atopic dermatitis) or who has a family member with the condition knows how bad it is. I’ve been burdened with eczema since around the time I was forming my first memories, so believe me I know. I’m 24 years old now, and I’ve spent countless itchy hours studying this condition and experimenting with every remedy I can get my hands on, practically to obsession. And I’ve come a […]
