Intermittent Fasting cleared up my eczema

I've had an eczema flair-up for the last 8 months or so. I would normally treat it with vaseline and over-the counter hydro-cortisone cream, but it would only get marginally better. Unrelated to my eczema I started doing fasting for dieting, eating only for 8 hours a day then fasting for 16 hours. Surprisingly it cleared up my eczema within a few days (my eczema was never horrendously bad but it wasn't clearing until then). Has anyone else tried intermittent fasting and seen results?

Re: Intermittent Fasting cleared up my eczema

Good to hear that the fasting cleared the eczema :) Maybe you can look into what foods you have been eating (before the fasting) and see if there's a chance you might have been allergic to those foods? Take care, cheers.
