Re: my eczema is ruining my life


It can be confusing, but a few basics is to moisturize and also to find out if there are any triggers from allergy test. How old is your sister? Puberty may bring about a change in skin too. For homeopathy,some reported it works but based on studies that I've found over pubmed, seems to be unconvincing. If your sister is young, should avoid antibiotics.. oral meds is not often prescribed for eczema, is her skin infected?

Take care,

Based on this study in January 2013, there is no significant difference between using homeopathic treatment versus conventional treatment, thus implying that the higher cost of homeopathy is unjustified. Similar conclusions in other studies at PubMed, here, here, here, here. (realized that the links can't be copied over, in ... athy-work/)

Hi Louise,
Sorry to hear about your issues, but I dont think putting makeup on it is helping. You need to let the skin breathe.
