Yeah, he tried putting socks on his hands but that didn't work out. Right now he's pretty much accepted the fact that hes gona be itchy forever. His buddies call it 'rotting corpse syndrome'.

I used to get it as a kid in the summer, real itchy in my elbow joints during the summer. Stopped scratching eventually and haven't had it for more than 15 years now. My bro's situation is very bad tho. I'm recommending stuff for him to try from this thread.

Also Cyberian, the Witch Hazel, is it made by a company called Dickinson's?

Many Thanks and I will keep you posted.

Yes that was the brand I used, I don't think it matters though.

Just mix equal parts and soak for a few minutes in a well ventilated area. It wreaks.

Go the natural method first............We us Olive oil (good stuff) on my son and it works fine. My sister had it on her feet as a kid and an old timer
suggested walking barefoot around the farm. Mud, garden etc and it cleared it up.

Good Luck.

I don't know if it matters, but I got mine in the Persian Gulf during the first war. It was part of the syndrome, I also had what looked to be nasty protein deposits on the hairs under my armpits, I bleached it off, it came back quite a few times though. Someone else on my ship got the same thing.

The hairs were like steel wool and would harden together, the coating was about three times thicker than the hairs, fairly even and white.
It would dry out after bleaching and powder off.

If you react badly to oils, like I did consider the alcohol and witchhazel.

Doesn't the rubbing alcohol burn like crazy? I've had people recommend peroxide, and I tried it and I was in tears, it burned so darn bad. Just thinking of putting peroxide on raw, bloody skin.....ouch!!!!

Does anyone here have dyshidrotic eczema?

Especially where the skin is cracked deep. I burns like hell. Yes.
If you have a condition like that you are so embarrassed to be seen, and so constantly annoyed by the pain and itching, that you would do anything.
And I did, I did everything and anything, hundreds of things. Olive oil just fed the fire for me.

I wonder if I did not have some kind of oil eating bacteria infection. Maybe something they used to clean up the oil dumped in the gulf.

I had it checked in China when I visited there, but they found nothing.
The VA and US doctors never even bothered to test. Pretty sad when they won't even bother to use a microsocpe.

With the dyshrotic ezcema, I get it on my feet real bad. Deep seeded blisters under the skin on the heel, and tiny puss filled blisters everywhere else. These blisters itch like crazy and when they pop, thats when they get rubbed raw, burn and bleed. I have it between my toes right now. It looks like someone took a razor blade and sliced right between my toes. Then the skin gets like leather. And it starts all over again. Lidocaine helps with the itching, but when they get cracked, raw, bloody and burn like the devil, nothing helps.

Sorry about the VA not helping you. My husband was over in the Gulf, and is retired now. I know how the VA is, unfortunately.

That is a fair description of my blisters, minus the puss. On both hands the back of the hands near the joints and along the sides of the fingers developed thick rinds and cracked deep, constantly peeling and thickening, sometimes the rinds would rip off on the joints, leaving an oozy raw opening.

You can go easy at first and just treat with a paper towel dipped in the alcohol and witchazel. Brushing or covering the area a little at a time, once you beat it back a bit, soaking is no problem. If you do this the cracks heal really fast, since the skin is rapidly dieing off. I have age spots on my hands where this happened, like some really old person, because of the rapid aging in those areas from all the exfoliation of the leathery rind. You do not want that to go untreated.

I hope you try this and that it helps, and if it is not for you, I hope you find peace soon!

I wanted to add that the blisters are filled with a clear fluid, not necesarily puss. It does sound like you have dishidrosis. The area between my thumb and forefinger get like yours.

I might give your idea a try, but I'm not looking forward to the burn...

Thanks and I hope you get yours under control.

I have Psoriasis and although it is not the same as eczema, I thought that considering that both of them being dermitalogical in nature I may post what helped me.
A little whille back my Psoriasis dissapeared completly, though it took time. It's strange how it can appear over night but take a while for it too dissapear. Though I eat well, (Meat, Veg,(brocolli, brussel sprouts, spinach etc.) and potato.) I decided too start drinking well also, so instead of drinking Coke and other types of soft drinks (soda) I substituted those for apple juice (laugh now) but not the reconstitued fruit drink types, but fresh %100 apple juice.... and then latter on I stopped eating red meat, (not for religious reasons or anything, just becuase the price here for a good steak went way up.) and only ate chicken or pork. After a while my Psoriasis started too disappear and that was without any topical treatments. Noticing this, I gave up all products that contained traces of red meat, (pies, sausage rolls, dim-sims, anything that contained mince meat. etc.)
Dermititus being a condition that can hurt a persons self confidence, as it has mine, I tried everything! The creams and lotions help, but do not remove the condition entirely and are quite labourious too apply and I'm not sure whether this will work for you, but making a change in your diet may help, I still think that my condition is related too a food allergy of sorts...maybe yours is too? Anyhow being able too treat a condition from the inside is more conveinient than treating it with creams and lotions.

As a side note, my condition has recently started too return, when I became laxed in my diet and eating habits. During work, I have been eating meat pies and the occasional meatball sub from Subway, after work, eating red meat (steak and lamb chops, also sausages.) I gave up on the apple juice, (that was maybe a catalyst for me too change my diet anyhow.) though as of the past few days I haven't been eating red meat, (I still drink alcohol like a fish and smoke like a chimmney, (hell, I'm having a beer right now!) lol.) so we will see whether or not it is all in my diet... or somthing else, and that I'll be able too wear shorts this summer.

Hoping that you find your "cure", I say "your" cure, because I'm certain that each person reacts differently too everything.

Cheers, Fox.

I had severe eczema for years, my nails fell off my fingers, my feet bled and cracked, no toenails either, it was horrible, until I came across this most unconventional but completely effective method of getting rid of it, it truly worked and I have never suffered again with it. You must get hold of green black walnuts. Strip the green from the nut and rub the stain onto the affected areas, it will stain your skin brown for a few days, but when the stain is gone, so it the eczema! This really works. I had taken everything out there, tried all types of creams and oils,witch hazel made it the worst, nothing rid me of the suffering or the horrible way it looked until I did this, and I have never had it again. If you want to be done with eczema forever do this treatment, you will be very happy!

I hope some day we don't have to label these types of cures "unconventional." The walnut skin sounds interesting.

Don't forget to nourish your body from the inside out. Getting larger doses of some vitamins and minerals may be helpful too. Extra sulfur could be helpful to your skin as well. I'm currently supplementing 8 grams a day of MSM (Organic Sulfur). I would like to try more. I don't know if I ever had eczema or psoriasis, but I think my skin is looking better after all the supplements. Although I am doing mega-dosing myself, it's still too soon for me to flat out recommend it, so mega-dose at your own risk. I am still experimenting and making observations.

But I do feel we are being pooped on by the pharmacy companies. They only seem to care about controlling your condition, not really taking care of it. You get some relief, but you never really get rid of the condition, and you keep feeding the big money machine.

I had gotten a bottle of medication while in mainland China years ago for my condition It was a stain like black walnut. I always suspected that it actually contained black walnut stain. It acted as a rapid exfoliant clearing the area. It did not cure my condition, but it did help. So I suspect that the "Home Remedy" is or was well known to be effective before industrial medicine took over.

I know of two oils that might be of some help.

One is Coconut Oil. It's great for your skin.

Here is a great article on the health benefits of Coconut Oil for eczema. Coconut Oil
MFCA are Medium Chain Fatty Acids.....

The MCFA help restore damaged skin, by penetrating into the cell structures of the connective tissues. Hence, it is excellent as a natural eczema treatment, for other skin disorders as well as for anti-ageing purposes. It also helps prevent the skin from developing liver spots, by destroying free radical formation.

MCFA in coconut oil help to prevent fungal and bacterial infections in the skin. At least one type of bacterium feeds on the sebum of our skin, breaking down the tryglycerides of the coconut oil into free fatty acids. When they are broken apart into free fatty acids, they become powerful antimicrobials, killing disease-causing bacteria, viruses, and fungi.

The combination of the slightly acid pH of the skin and the MCFA provides a protective chemical layer on the skin that prevents infection from disease-causing organisms.

Another Oil I would suggest is Melalueca Oil or Tea Tree Oil

Hope that helps....

I don't know if this will help anyone, but I react to my allergies mostly through itchy skin, the normal reaction, sneezing, runny eyes, comes last for me. I also break out in something similar to hives that leaves a huge red welt.

I went to my dr. and she put me on Claritin or generic name Loratadine 10 mg, it's the same drug, but the Loratadine is half the price of Claritin, both can be purchased, over the counter, anyway this helped me with the itching a lot.

I take it everyday, then eventually I have gotten to where I don't need it as much, so I usually take it now about three days a week, just whenever I start to feel itchy.

There is good news!

About a year ago, or a bit longer, I started to do "detox". This was done as a parasite cleanse. There is another detox for Candida, which is responsible for a lot of the yeast related issues.

When I started, my hands were in terrible shape needing hand lotion daily. If I missed a daily application, my hands would flake and look horrible. My niece said I had crusty hands.

Now, 1 year later....still shedding parasites allong with 30 lbs of belly fat, I am in much better shape. My BP is near normal...I had bouts of 235/165, stroke in 05, as well as many other problems. I can report that my health has improved exponentially since I started detox. Oh, and my hands are smooth. Now my niece will hold my hand.

The product I used, and am still using, is "renewlife".

I believe we can blame parasites (or pathogens as medical proponents say) for many of the problems antibiotics can't touch and doctors say there is no cure for. If they treated people for parasites, most of the problems people have would evaporate leaving Doctors and Drug Companies with modest incomes.

Pumpkin seeds are a good natural source of detox material, a good place to start and relatively inexpensive.

Search detox and see what comes up, we all need to do this regularly. walnut is one ingredient renewlife uses.

Good point on the detox. I believe if you are toxic on the inside, it can show on the outside. There is so much junk bombarding our bodies from the outside and the inside.

Don't forget the solution isn't always instantaneous. It could take a little time.

Detoxing can come with worsening, or problems, at first, followed eventually by betterment While your body is eliminating toxins, funny things can happen.

A little boy at the school I work at use to get eczema really bad. His parents booked him in for a a new skin laser therapy and it has cleared up completely.

I think this is an ongoing process but is 100% effective.

this is my first time replying to a post on here, but my aunt suffered from that for years... a doctor told her to take 2 tablespoons of Cod Liver Oil/Castor Oil. I cant remember which sorry bout that, cant hurt to take both. but he said to do that once a day every day, and it should be gone in 6 months.

She said it happened 6 months to the day. Believe what you want, but i know this happened for a fact.

I currently have an Aqueous Cream which is basically moisturiser and this other cream which is like hydrocortisone which is supposed to get rid of any imflammation. The fact is they do not work. They work for a week or two then its as if my skin become immune to them. I was given anti-biotics to help but it went back to its normal self. I would upload some pictures but i feel people would find them quite sick.

Again, if you have any "cures" please share them, thanks.

I did a quick internet search for "eczema natural remedy". This was the first in the list: There are many others.
