I've been suffering from mild to moderate eczema (actually seborrheic dermatitis, but I know this is one of its subtype) for about 1 year already on my face. I get these rashes and dry patches on my face. For almost a year, I've been using Candibec cream (antifungal with steroid component). It helps with the inflammation and itching, but it just comes back. I know the reprecussions using steriods so I'm trying it the natural way.
I was inspired to see someone from a video blog who got "rid" of his eczema. That's why I'm starting on my ACV. I'm drinking ACV (2 tbsp of 1/4 cup of water), and applying some diluted ACV. It'll be one week tomorrow. There's no significant changes, but I'm just happy to know I've been off steriods for almost two weeks now. Flare-ups occur on and off, but it's not too bad.
Aside from these, I take 1000mg of Vit C, 400mg of Vit E and 3 soft gel capsules containing omega 3, 6, 9. I try to eat healthy as much as possible.
Sometimes, I want the easy fix, but I try not to hold off the steriods for the time being. I know this will take some time and lot of effort. I will update you guys a month from now if I see any huge improvements. We can do it guys!
