14 Comments for the Eczema Home Remedy


I've suffered from eczema my entire life.(i'm 25 years old) Seen countless dermatologists and allergists in search for something to give me relief. I use to scratch none stop, clothing and bedding would be covered in blood from the constant scratching. I've been put on everything imaginable from steroid pills to creams, even Prednisone just to give me 2 weeks of relief. As of two months ago I havent touched my steroid creams or pills and I no longer itch. All due to something as simple as a LEMON. I apply lemon juice freshly squeezed to all areas of my body (I have eczema everywhere) It acts as an natural antiseptic. Killing the germs that I was spreading through scratching. Yes there was an initial sting but it lasted no longer than 5 seconds. I apply this 2 times a day and exfoliate at night using a 1 part lemon 1 part sugar mix. Never changed my diet or how I lived. Still use scented soaps, lotions, perfumes. Besides my eczema being cured the scars that came along with them are now fading. Which turned out to be a double benefit to using lemon juice (its a natural bleach). Also some people might think it would be drying to the skin. But it seems to have the opposite effect for me.I never have to apply lotion. This has helped me as person who was told my doctors, dermatologist, and allergist that I have the worst case they have seen and there is nothing they can do.
Good luck to everyone!

Out of curiousity, if I use salt instead of sugar will it work? Isn't salt a better disinfectant than sugar?


Can you use the bottled lemon juice?


will try this- thanks (:)


This one didn't work for me. I tried rubbing a half lemon across my palm twice a day for two days and after 2 days my hands were even worse. Every body is different so if you are going to try this I would patch test first.
