Reader’s Corner:Eczema

Quite a few readers have risen to the challenge of finding remedies to treat eczema.


One reader suggests an elimination diet, and the usual suspects – wheat, gluten, and dairy products – are fingered as the most likely culprits.


Topical treatments can only relieve, but never cure, our reader, a reflexologist, says. Another reader agrees. He’s treated five patients with acute eczema and they’ve all got better after sorting out a chemical imbalance. If you do want a topical cream, try hemp. It relieved some of the worst symptoms of itchiness for one reader. Another uses 5 mL of sweet almond oil with one drop of tea tree and lavender essential oils.


Also, try to reduce stress, do yoga exercises and drink more water.
