Learning to care for your own Eczema and wage war against it without needing Doctors or specialists can be the one thing that finally tips the scales in your favor. Many people experience no relief through various medical help, so maybe you can find relief through the tips I have compiled below.
Home Remedy 1- Diet
The average person's diet contains a fair degree of acid. Scientists have proven that that acid can be very bad for Eczema. You have two solutions-systematically cut down on acidic foods, which is tougher than it sounds, or take some kelp supplements. Kelp is very high in alkali, and will help to neutralize some of the acid. This can be very effective, as can visiting a diet expert and having them compile a few meal plans for you.
Home Remedy 2-Vitamin E
Vitamin E has excellent effects on areas affected with Eczema. The main benefit is that it can greatly reduce the itching and discomfort you can feel in your worst Eczema prone areas. The way it works is by neutralizing the microbes in the area-these microbes are thought to be to blame for the irritation which causes the itching. Natural Vitamin E is much more efficient than the synthetic kind, so be careful when buying.
Home Remedy 3- Blueberry Extract
Blueberry leaves have a natural acid in them, which acts a wholly natural anti inflammatory. If you use and apply this regularly, it can really help you in the long term. Blueberry leaf extract should be found in your local health store.
Home Remedy 4- Moisturize
Moisturizing can be a real godsend for some Eczema sufferers, but many people just don't bother with it. If you get into a regular moisturization regime, you can really cut the effect the condition can have on your life. It's best to moisturize as often as possible, twice a day if possible, and it's also best to do it after bathing or showering. Apply the moisturizer when your skin is still slightly damp, and you will be helping to seal that all important moisturizer inside your skin.
Eczema is never good news, but most people don't realize they can make a real difference to it if they take some action! Hopefully you will use these tips and find some real freedom.
