Get rid of eczema

leave a comment »

I have lived with eczema my whole entire life. I hate it! When I was younger I found what worked best was to apply triamcinolone Cream to the affected areas. This would get rid of the eczema right away. But beware, use sparingly. If you use too often your body will build up a tolerance.

You cant actually get rid of eczema, but you can reduce the breakouts. For the last few years I have discovered that tanning once a week in the wintertime and applying Argan Oil to my body to prevent the eczema breakouts (or at least keep the eczema at bay).

What is eczema? According to Wikipedia it is………..

Eczema is a form of dermatitis,or inflammation of the epidermis. The term eczema is broadly applied to a range of persistent skin conditions. These include dryness and recurring skin rashes which are characterized by one or more of these symptoms: redness, skin edema (swelling), itching and dryness, crusting, flaking, blistering, cracking, oozing, or bleeding. Areas of temporary skin discoloration may appear and are sometimes due to healed lesions, although scarring is rare. In contrast to psoriasis, eczema is often likely to be found on the flexor aspect of joints.

If anyone else has eczema and they have any tips the have worked for them to help get rid of eczema and dry skin. Please share with me and other users.
