Working as a nurse, I'm in alot of stress. This was first exacerbated by working for Dr.'s offices, as time flies it progressed to different parts of my body elbo,neck, knees, underarm etc. it got worse while doing night shift.Clobetasol for 3 years but later read about the side effects of possible skin cancer. cortizones are very bad when used long term, also thins out the skin.
i read this website in one night: this problm should be addressed systemically: by diet, exercise, supplimentation in combination with topical ointments and emollients or lotions.
the Chinese dr said to me: stay away from fish, red meat and crab and shrimp, he suggested to use mint oils (white flower which has a high dose of mint+ camphor and salisylate) + aveeno lotion to sooth the inflammation that causes the overproduction of dermal tissue causing flakes and plaques of skin.I alternate this remedy with cortizone (8$ a tube)+ aspercream (5$)since im out of clobetasol( 600$ bottle but if you have good insurance only 60$)
my other dr. friend said to eat antiinflammatary foods :this i got look up. he suggested: fish oil,mint teas, fruit, veges,along with eating mostly organic foods
he said to stay away from foods that cause inflammation: tomatoes,peppers and hot foods,anything red
my other nurse friend said she remembers that in nursing school we learned to stay away from eggs; i still have to look this up.
then when doing research: Psoriasis is Pruritis: 'painful itching', the more you itch the more the cells with develop under the skin, so i think if i can releave the pain i can atleast releave the itch, Iam currently using cortizone and Althletic aspercream and applying them mixed to all my areas twice daily. this really helps relieve the painful itch. its important not to scratch and when before applying fresh dose you must cleanse or exfoliate (with clean rough rag)the old cream off with dove soap and rinse well with cold water. after i figure out what exaclty and how exactly i will modify my diet, i will keep you posted. if inflammation is so severe apply ice cubes, so far my diet will consist mostly of vegetables, water, tea, chicken and pork,eggs(i plan on keeping this anyway for now and maybe take it off later)& flax seed oil eliminating all together: coffee, sugar (this will be hard) dairy (this too) and only drinking organic milk or soymilk, wheat, chocolate and shrimp and crab. i plan on adding each of these items one by one each month to see if i can handle consuming them along with my set diet.
this is alot but most of this info is obtained by what i got from this website, my medical friends and research.
i am gravitating to the idea of using Vit D, fish oils, cod liver oil, probiotics, zinc, b-12 vitamins: then i will do the Sea salt and add it to my lotions as well as bath soaks for 30 minute each night.good luck everyone...m LPN

Thankyou to everyone for their remedies.Can you tell me what caused your eczema?I have had it for 3 weeks and I think it's either a soap powder or Pravastatin that has caused mine.HI'm going to try the organic coconut oil treatment.At moment I use E45 anti- itch cream,which is good and have baths in Oilatum.
