Greetings Earth Clinic,
First and foremost, it has been such a great help for me to stumble upon this site for the eczema patients whom suffered from this 'notorious' ailment. I am suffering from the dreadful ailment for almost a year now. On and off. Oh, I tell you, the amount of cold hard cash I spent on those OTC steroids cream was HUGE. Not until last nite, where all ends meet, I told myself, this has to stop somewhere. I need to work out something. Working in an environment where you have to meet new people everyday with the flaky, itchy red skin was uncomfortable to say the least.
My last resort was ACV. I went to my nearest grocery store, to get one. I knew about the 'Mother' but was clueless at what is it all about.
I grabbed the organic one, untreated, unfiltered. Has brown residue sitting at the bottom of the bottle. When I got back home, the experiment starts. Diluting equal portions as directed, and applied it on my neck and legs and BAM! OUCH! F**K! It stings like SOFB.
But I persisted! I am vain inside out! I want my healthy skin back.
This is my 2nd day, the itch subsides but yeah, it does get worse upon application, but that is the healing process they would call it. Slowly I see my 'new' rejuvenated skin surface from the 'intoxicated' one. Slowly, the flaky skin residue falls off. And I moisturize my skin with Vaseline Petroleum Jelly.
Got myself a handy spray bottle. Then I let it air dry, no patting, just air dry. It hurts, stings. But for beauty sake, I am willing, afterall, they say, 'the price of beauty you have to pay'.
I watched my diet too, cut down on sugar, dairy and wheat products. Taking 2 teaspoon of ACV with tea and it will itch your body for a short period, counter-reacting with the fungus in the system, after a while it subside. For the past 2 days, I am able to sleep better and looked great.
Try the ACV! There is still hope for us, eczema patients. I have yet to try the carbicarb method. If this ailment persists, I will try that as suggested by Ted.
Will definitely update on my progress to let the community know of my condition.
