Intermittent Fasting cleared up my eczema

Postby dacoolman on Fri Mar 01, 2019 9:54 pm

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?

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.
