Someone said :
anyone a long time sufferer?
Had chronic eczema when I was about 6 months old until I was maybe 4/5. It did develop into adult eczema but luckily enough its not too bad, although it really all about management. It can get bad if I let it. Some foods aggravate it more than others, and keeping the affected areas clean and well moisturised is the key.
These days ts very localised as I only get it on a little area on my wrists and toes, but it's still a bit of a nuisance, especially having to use specialised soaps/shampoos, and the general drying affect water can have on my skin.
My little brother completely cured his as a toddler by drinking goats milk. Might be worth a try. I just can't stomach the stuff (actually I cant even swallow the stuff).
