Natural remedies for eczema – there are many available, including natural oils and herbs. Eczema is really hard to deal with – the itch – it can actually take over your whole life. It can really over-shadow things. Anyone who has eczema will know that the prescribed medication is steroid cream. There are drawbacks to using steroid cream which you may have experienced or have discovered. A major drawback is that steroid cream can actually thin the skin. Another drawback is that it does not work! It covers the problem – it creates a film over the top of the eczema. You will notice if you use steroid cream that as soon as you stop the eczema actually comes back worse than before you started.
When searching for natural remedies for eczema unfortunately you will still have to look into the product. You need to still check the ingredients. I realised this on my searches. I was constantly on the internet looking for an eczema natural cure. Within my hours spent, I came across one that claimed to be natural – the results looked great and so did the testimonials. Then I scrolled down to the ingredients and sure enough it had Hydrocortisone in it.
Different people experience eczema in different forms, such as, cracked skin, tiny bumps, inflamed or weeping. Whichever of these relates to your eczema I know that night time sleeping will be unbearable for you. If you have a young child with eczema the fact they are not a good nights sleep can actually make the whole thing worse.
Eczema is particularly hard to cope with in young children and unfortunately that is where it usually begins – in children under 5. I have had first hand experience with this. My sons eczema began on his first Christmas. The time we spent trying to rid him of eczema after this was not a pleasant journey and one that I would not wish on any parent.
