Anyone here has eczema problems?

Postby harrykane140693 on Thu Jul 19, 2018 4:56 pm

Have had it now for 26 years and it runs through my family.

I was wondering if theres anyway to prevent this such as improving diet or vitamins, maybe some natural remedies for the skin?

Last thing I want is for my dry skin, cuts be more susceptible to ring worm, warts ect.

I was wondering if any has found anything to help make their skin stronger and healthier?

Thanks in advance.

Hi, sorry for your problems. I had eczema very bad about 20 years ago. I strongly believe it was due to allergens in my carpet. Dust mites (very small bugs) live in carpeting and feed on shedded human skin (gross I know). The excrement from these dust mites is what caused my eczema I believe. The best thing to do is to get rid of old carpeting. Replace with hard surface flooring that can be cleaned easily. If you can't do that, get the best vacuum you can find and vacuum regularly. Get a vacuum that has a good filter so the dust doesn't fly everwhere. Also, to protect your skin, eat healthy fats - flax seed oil, olive oil, fish oil. This will help protect your skin. Don't use soap on your skin every day since it can dry it out.

Good luck!
