anyone tried chickweed and maleluca cream? got it from my local health shop. is amazing at how much it sooths and stops the itchiness, which causes the eczema to disappear.
recommend it to anyone with eczema to try it. way better than the steroid cremes, calamine lotion or other treatments ive tried.

IRM: nice to see you mate.
I couldn't agree more. I have dermatitis, and when I lived near the sea many years ago, my ex-defacto, who was an MD, told me to walk along the beach every day and just dive in a for a minute or two, and dry off naturally.
Worked like a charm for my dermatitis, and even .....yuck...tinea.
OP or anyone: if you're lucky to live seaside, the IRM's advice is golden

I hope this isn't to graphic, but the aim is to clean out the body and have a bowel movement every day, drink plenty of water, fresh vegtables and fruit and avoid certain fatty products.
