Eczema is often attributed to some sort of food or airborne allergy and can be minimized by determining the allergens and adjusting accordingly. Most eczema sufferers resort to using pharmaceuticals pills, creams, or steroids.
How to cure eczema
• Apply a non-prescription steroid cream (hydrocortisone) along with anti-itching lotion (menthol/camphor, such as calamine). The cream must be applied as often as possible without skipping days until the rash is gone.
• Diphenhydramine (Benadryll) in pill form may be taken for the itching. Caution – you should not take this medication if you need to drive a car or operate machinery, as it will make you sleepy.
• Clean the area with a hypoallergenic soap every day. Apply lubricating cream or lotion after washing.
Long term changes
First of all, you must make a few long term changes in order to cure eczema. Keep a little log book that tracks what you’re doing or what you are consuming when you have flare-ups or you notice the most discomfort. Track the date, as well as your diet at the time and any foreign products that you may have used (e.g. detergent, new hand soap, medication etc.) Eventually you may see a pattern begin to emerge that allows you to get a better sense of what to avoid to manage it on a daily basis. Avoiding triggers and allergens is a solid approach that many folks find help if not cure their eczema.
• Eliminating chemically sprayed veggies and fruits, processed foods (even so-called “natural” cereals), junk foods, sugars, and artificial sweeteners goes a long way toward curing eczema.
• Minimising stress and adding moderate exercise has also proven to be effective. Sweat can act as a trigger or exacerbate eczema. So avoid sweating whenever possible or shower immediately afterward sweating.
• Increase your omega-3 intake with avocadoes, fresh salmon or tuna from unpolluted waters, eggs, organic raw nuts, and organic hemp, chia or flax seeds. Two tablespoons or more of flax seeds need to be ground with a coffee grinder just before consuming them.
Avoid physical and mental stress. Eating right, light activity, and adequate sleep will help you stay healthy, which can help cure eczema.
