Treating eczema is still a mystery, despite the fact that it affects over 15% of the world’s population. In fact, the causes of eczema are still unknown – which makes finding a treatment almost impossible.
While the signs and symptoms of eczema will vary depending on the person and other factors, the most common symptoms of eczema include dry, red patches on the skin.
Some may experience oozing and weeping, scaly and flaking, and sometimes even blisters. Eczema may appear on the face, foot, scalp………almost anywhere on the body.
Treating eczema is often difficult and usually requires nasty prescription medications like corticosteroids to help relive inflammation, itching, and scaly skin patches.
Regardless if you require medication or not there are some "home remedies" for eczema -- at least ones that don't require toxic drugs. For example, weekly cold compresses or soaks can help relive pain and itching.

Natural Home Remedies For Eczema
Your skin reacts to every it comes in contact with, this is especially true with those suffering from eczema because the skin barrier is already damaged -- your skin has no defense. So what can you do?
As a health advisor and research consultant for over 25 years, I make every effort to find solutions for a variety of skin problems, especially eczema.
It seems that when people with eczema kept their skin routine as simple and natural as possible, they had a significant reduction in symptoms and flare-ups.
It's important to use the proper topical skin products. Wash your skin with only with gentle pH balanced cleansers - like an eczema soap - and keep it moisturized and hydrated - preferably with moisturizers or lotions designed for eczema skin.
Never use regular soap, lotions, or moisturizers. It's important that your skin products are not only gentle to the skin, but also chemical free. Try to avoid herbicides, fertilizers, fragrances, and preservatives if possible.
