Did a search for dermamed, and didn't come up with anything...but wondering if any of you have tried this product - it's supposed to be a natural plant ointment for itchy, cracking and irritated skin. For those of you who have acne and eczema, you know what a battle it is to get clear(er) skin.

Like lots of GPs, mine prescribed me cortizone for the eczema. I've recently been getting itchy eyelids, and yesterday she told me to put the cortizone there too. Isn't cortizone supposed to have some pretty icky side effects? I don't want to put it on my eyelids. Ahh!! sad.gif Looking for something natural. Stuff I've tried for eczema (but not on eyelids): lavender and camomile cream from Escents, lavender oil straight on, and sarna (no luck). I have just started taking capsules with evening primrose oil, flax seed, vitamin b etc...

Any feedback would be appreciated. Thanks!! 8)

doodles - I have never had bad eczema, but for a few months last year, for some reason, my back became covered in eczema like dryness/itchiness/flakiness.

... I did a search on the web for natural remedies.

I found a site saying to 1. drink 3-5 glasses a day (before meals) of 1 glass of warm water adding 2 tablespoons of apple cider vinegar plus 1-2 teaspoons of Manuka honey. 2. Have a daily bath (no bubbles) adding 1 whole cup of apple cider vinegar to the bath water and soak for 20 minutes.

I did all the above and sure enough, 2 weeks later all the eczema was gone!!

It's worth a try! And both are easily available from health stores.

I don't know how much it will help someone with loads of eczema ... but from researching further, it seems that the apple cider vinegar balances PH levels and eczema (as well as acne) is a sign that the body is too acidic.

There is a thread on this board about eating foods that are more alkaline too - you should try that. http://acne.org/messageboard/viewtopic.php?t=22105

Good luck. Hope that helps.
