My 6 year old son has been suffering from severe eczema for 5 years. He has be hospitalised twice for it. He has had to have wet dressings applied to his whole body 4 times a day. I tried absolutely everything to try and get rid of his eczema but nothing worked. My parents have an apple tree and had given us bags of apples. My son loved them much that he was eating anywhere between 2 - 6 apples a day.

After a couple of days his skin was completely clearing of eczema. I couldn't believe it. But it didn't cross my mind at the time that it could be the apples. My son didn't have the apples for about 4 days and I could see that his eczema was coming back. Then it occurred to me that he wasn't eating the apples. So he started eating them again and within 2 days his skin was clear again.

I encourage those parents who are watching there children suffer with eczema to please feed them organic apples not the apples you get from the supermarket. Make sure there organic. I'm so happy and my son is even happier.

My daughter had awful eczema on her face. I saw one reference to an ingredient called quercetin that I knew was supposed to be in apple skin. I buy organic apples and slice one up every morning for her breakfast. She only eats half an appple, but the eczema is now easily controllable with a little half percent cortisone. If she ate a whole apple, I feel like she would not need the cortisone at all. I'd like to get her to try the ACV, but know she'd hate the smell. Love this site...just found it!
