rich emollient used in the management of eczema, psoriasis and other dry skin conditions.


Hey guys!

First of all, my skin is quite bad today, not majorly bad, but as the title says it’s raw & red! But I’m not panicking over it. I went for a meal last night with my family, & I was literally starving when I got there so I cheated a bit & had some bread, and I was also wearing nail varnish, so both of them together must have aggravated my skin a bit! But I’m not freaking out over it, I know it’ll get better eventually.

However, today I have stayed completely loyal to my Paleo diet, snacking on nuts & fruit & eating salad a meat for my meals, so there will definitely be no cheating from now on! I really want to give this diet a proper go, since it could be the thing that changes my life! 🙂 I have also taken the nail varnish off completely.

I know I may be relying on this diet too much, but I cannot help it, finding out this diet has helped so many sufferers is like the light at the end of a long, depressing & aggravating tunnel! And I’ve been let down by things like this before, these so called ‘miracle cures’; people stating that they do a  honey face mask once a week & they’re cured! They’re the lucky ones of course…

But for us, it’s a much harder, itchy & upsetting road. Thankfully we can at least talk to people in the same situation! I’ve been going through this alone for a long time, until recently when I found the ‘talkeczema’ forums, and it has helped so much to see that people are going through the same thing, and who actually care. Unlike doctors who throw you a dangerous steroid cream & send you on your way!

Hope you’re all having a good day 🙂
Bye guys!

Hey, my name is Brooke. Basically, I have this blog so I can talk about eczema. I have suffered with eczema all my life, and when I turned 13 it flared up for no apparent reason, and has remained basically the same. So on here I will hopefully be blogging everyday explaining new things I am using to try and fight eczema, and hopefully I will overcome it. Happy blogging!
