Liana

I have had eczema since I was six years old, I am now thirteen. As you can imagine it's very difficult being a teen, and having this uncurable disease, I have it all over my legs l, upper arm, back and hips. I can't wear shorts or bikini's. When I went to my dermatologist a week ago, he prescribed me prednezone. And gave it to me as a shot. I have not felt itchy when I woke up the next morning! I still have some cuts but they are healing very nicely. I still have many scars, and I but mederma on them at night and in the morning. Please try this and ask your doc. About this.

Liana, get off the prednisone! It may have short-term benefits and clear you up, but trust me, it's not worth it! I began having chronic hives when I was 18, and they ended up giving me prednisone, which cleared them up completely. However, it causes excessive weight gain, especially in the face, and has other long-term detrimental medical effects. I am 31 now, and was on and off of prednisone for a total of 5 years. Whenever I went off it, I'd just have an even worse hive flare-up. I still have the hives some, but what I've found most effective for treating them is a healthy diet (organic whenever possible, as little preservatives/pesticides/additives/hormones as possible).

try Carolines Cream from Australia. it's easier to find under caroline skin care I think. It is 100% natural made by a woman who also suffered (past tense) from eczema. I use it everyday and love it. My mom used it for rosacea (which is now gone) and we also use it in summer whenever we burn. put it on after a burn just like you would aloe (re-applying) and you won't peel because your skin will heal. it is amazing. look her up online the product is carolines cream out of Perth Australia. It really is amazing.

Have you tried avoiding certain foods? You may be having a severe reaction to milk! My son suffers from eczema, but once we took him off cow's milk (and a few other food allergens) he cleared up. I highly reccommend eliminating milk from your diet for 3 months and see what happens! He has his occassional flare-ups, but nothing like before (this is due to environmental allergens).

You know, medications do work sometimes, people. Not everything can be cured by rubbing mud and stuff on people. Some things can sooth ezcema, but if this girl is really benefiting from the drugs, I'd say don't fix what ain't broke. You know?

I have had horrible eczema fir years now and I work as a cosmetologist. The prednisone does help. I use it a few times a year. Long term effects are hard on the liver. But it does clear it up enough to then get it under control with creams. Drink organic cherry juice too. A cup a night. It'll help alittle.

I have a 20 month old who suffers from chronic asthma,eczema (also a form of asthma), and a slew of allergies.I have tried a bunch of different creams, ointments, and lotions, and the only thing that seems to clear it up is Prednisone. The downside of it is that Prednisone is a corticosteroid and can have detrimental effects on the liver. So be careful.

I've tried all sorts of creams...antifungal, antibacterial and moisturizers, including olive oil. But the thing that worked best for me is change of diet as it addresses root cause...bodyhealthadvisor.com

Everything has it's pros and cons. For as effective prednisone is, it's not healthy at all to use it long-term. it's a reaaaaallly strong steroid. it surpresses your immune system, which is why the inflammation goes down. just be careful when you're on the stuff.

I have had rosacea for over 20 years. I went through the allopathic treatments - prednisone, daily doses of tetracycline, etc. - all of which provided some temporary improvement at the expense of worsening side effects. Over time I discovered the following treatments which do work and have few or no side effects:

1. Chinese herbs, specifically one called 'clear the heat'. However I understand you can't stay on those either constantly forever.

2. A series of innovative lab tests revealed my cellular levels of antioxidants were low, which was surprising given my very healthy diet. High doses of an antioxidant supplement like concentrated pomegranate, black current, blueberry or grape juice makes a definite identifiable difference.

3. Oil pulling. See book on Amazon by Bruce Fife. The inflammation reduced from the first day. It's just a simple but ancient technique whereby you swish some kind of vegetable oil in your mouth for 20 min at least once a day, preferably when you wake up in the morning. Amazing and no side effects.

It took me 25 years to discover these remedies so I want to pass them on.
