A friend of mine had injections at home via an NHS nurse and they cost thousands of pounds - All done for free and his skin is perfect now

I used to go on this machine that took your blood out, filtered out the white cells and then treated them with UV light. It took 4 hours on two consecutive days every two weeks and then eventually every month and eventually not at all. Really workd but cost a fortune.

No. But it seems that your walking around with a granite block on yours.

Okay, Thank you Doctor and keep up the good work!

I have similar history with sebhorreic dermatitis which webmd.com says is also a form of eczema. Don't let the doctors pressure you into using Aqueous Cream as a UK study claimed it makes it worse by harming the skin's barrier function (the stratum corneum). I was told it would help starting in my late teens and it only really made it worse.

My condition largely went away this year, and my use of E45 moisturiser and Omega 3 capsules may have helped. It will probably return at some stage though. I also think my consumption of Acidophilus capsules may have helped as they are good bacteria which combats "Bad" bacteria that cause sebhorreic dermatitis. So may you should try all of this.

I don't have it but I think having been close to people that do that stress can cause flare ups as well.
It's a very painful condition.
There are many different gentle washing preparations that people swear by, I know moo goo, an Australian brand of natural products has been successful for one of my friends and they have a range of creams as well?

A friend of mine told me, her friend had a form of it, and the only thing that helped was time on a Sun bed.

I have heard the sun's UV rays kill the Malazzezia yeast which causes sebhorreic dermatitis which is a form of eczema.

Hence my treatment above. You might aswell get a sun holiday in though aswell. The last holiday I was on there was a woman there for that exact reason.

Yeah, I though it must be something like that, a yeast or fungus that get's broken down by UV.

Thats one of the reasons Walking bare foot on the beach is good for your feet.

you're getting full spectrum sunlight which kills yeast and fungus, and salty sea water which kills bacteria.

As far as I was aware most eczema is autoimmune, nothing to do with fungi or bacteria. Hence they just treated my white cells (immune system cells) with UV light. Although I didn't have eczema but the symptoms would have been similar. Unfortunatel doing the sunbeds you are still going to put your skin at risk but I suppose it is worth it for a comfortable life.

Yes, yes the Eczema itself is not yeast or bacteria.
What I mean is because it compromises your skin's barriers people really only notice eczema when they start getting stupid little rashes and skin problems from every day environments that otherwise wouldn't be able to break the skin. So for most people "eczema" becomes the collective term for "all the skin conditions they are currently suffering from for which eczema is the underlying cause".

Like HIV is to Aids, is Eczema to 'skin problems' if you'll excuse the rather grim comparison.

Anyhow, for most of these problems exposure to full spectrum light and salt water is a powerful combination.

Oh I'm sure a bad case of eczema can make you feel lower than a managed case of HIV

I was diagnosed with it about 3 weeks ago
Basically I got a couple of patches on my hand and went to the chemist.
They said it was eczema and gave me Cortopin 1% cream. Cleared it up in about 10 days

Good stuff that, I've noticed mine drying up as the chill sets in.

I seem to be doing OK

The stuff I got I applied it and it cleared then a few days later it came back (not a surprise) I began applying again and it seems to be winning the war.
