Eczema and Fish Oil

Hi Everyone!
My name is Rachel, I’ve been struggling with mild to moderate eczema since I was a child.

With that being said, I’ve decided to do research on fish oil and whether or not it can help treat eczema for my project. Since eczema is an inflammation of the skin, fish oil has shown therapeutic benefits among those who have arthritis (inflammation of the joints).
If a few of you could help me by doing a little survey, that would be awesome! Thank you in advance !! :)

1) How old are you?
a) 18 and under
b) 19-25
c) 26-32
d) 33 and up

2) Since when have you been experiencing the symptoms of eczema?
a) infancy
b) childhood years
c) teenage years
d) adult years

3) Have you been clinically diagnosed with eczema?
a) yes
b) no
c) not sure

4) How bad is your case of eczema?
a) mild
b) moderate
c) severe
d) very severe

5) Do you take fish oil?
a) yes
b) no
c) occasionally

6) If so, have you experienced a change in symptoms?
a) yes
b) no
c) not sure

7) Do you eat fish?
a) yes
b) no
c) sometimes

8) If so, about how many times a week do you eat fish?
a) once
b) 2-3
c) more than 4 times

Re: Eczema and Fish Oil

Hi Rachel, I'm Katie, I'm 27, I hope my answers help you out.

I used to take fish oil regularly for my eczema, I'm not absolutely sure if it helped, but for me there certainly are certain food stuffs (oily fish, some nuts and seeds and oats for example) that really help my skin.

Let us know the results of your project.
