How to Treat Eczema

How to Treat Eczema


Hi guys! This is Cyndi. And this is Daniel. And today we are going to be talking about
a topic that we both are very familiar with and that’s eczema. yes eczema and some of the different ways
that you can handle it without corticosteroids. so if you clicked on this video I’m pretty
sure it’s either because you’re dealing with eczema or you know somebody who has eczema
but what is eczema? Eczema is a skin condition that can cause
dry itchy scaly patches on your skin and nobody really knows what is the exact cause of eczema
but there seems to be so many factors that can cause flare-ups. Some of these factors can be dust, pet dander,
pollen, cold dry air, and some other factors such as stress, diet, and genetics. Eczema is an autoimmune disorder and there’s
currently no cure. So in 2011 I was diagnosed with eczema. My skin on my hands and on my elbows and under
my nose was really dry and itchy and it would become scabbed. My dermatologist prescribed me with the corticosteroid
creams that help get rid of the eczema and keep the flare ups from coming back. Normally you’re supposed to use those cream
for a week or two weeks, long enough to get rid of the flare-ups. And I guess by that time he didn’t realize
and I didn’t either that using those steroid creams on his skin for so long can have really
bad consequences. So I remember that we went to Peru to visit
my family and we went to the dermatologist and we told the told the dermatologist that
he had been using them for quite a long time, so he said I he should stop immediately because
what happened is that he could build a dependency on the cream and his skin would be very thin
and delicate, and of course other negative consequences. So as soon as I stopped taking the corticosteroid
creams the eczema on my hands and my elbows and even on one of my ankles where I had been
applying the cream it just came back in full force And I was miserable it was just really embarrassing
dealing with the eczema and people were asking me about what was wrong with my hand my skin
and it was always itchy and bothering me all the time. Yeah I know and I felt so bad for him because
he could scratch his skin nonstop the whole day even though I knew that he didn’t want
it but it was like he couldn’t control it. That’s why I try to find some remedies that
he can apply on his skin that don’t include any kind of steroids. And that’s the reason for this video. So we’re going to Show you some of the different
ways that you can manage your eczema with topical remedies that don’t include any steroids,
so let’s get right to it! Okay let’s start with coconut oil. Just make sure you get cold pressed and unrefined
coconut oil. what you have to consider when you get it
is that coconut oil melts at room temperature and some people might not like the smell,
and of course it will make your hands very oily when you first apply. Also coconut oil can be a little bit expensive,
especially if you want to get a big jar like us Some of the benefits of using coconut oil
are that it is antibacterial, it moisturizes and softens skin and doesn’t contain the chemicals
found in other skin care products. Now apple cider vinegar. Just make sure to get organic and unfiltered
and with the “mother.” Some of the benefits about apple cider vinegar
are that it helps to balance the pH of your skin, it is a good way to detox and reduce
inflammation and itching sensation from eczema among many other great benefits. Wait! Don’t apply apple cider vinegar straight
to your skin, honey! In a bowl or cup, you need to add two parts
of water and one part apple cider vinegar to dilute the vinegar before applying to your
skin. Now it can be dabbed on your skin and left
to dry before applying coconut oil or any other kind of moisturizer that you have. Or it can be placed in a larger container
and you can soak your hand a few things to consider are that apple cider vinegar has
a strong vinegar smell. It burns when eczema flare-ups are really
bad, and large, slimy cultures form if you don’t use it often. That’s just the mother of the vinegar. For more information you can click the link
in the description below. Another one of the remedies that we’ve used
is calcium bentonite clay. there’s some kinds that you can consume. The ones that we use you just put on your
skin. We’ve also discovered that calcium bentonite
clay is actually recommended to be used with apple cider vinegar because it helps balance
out the pH in the mixture closer to that of your skin. As you can see I’m using a plastic bowl and
a spoon. You don’t want to use a metal spoon or a bowl
because it will react with the bentonite clay causing it to activate before it reaches your
skin and become less effective for its purpose. Some of the benefits of using calcium bentonite
clay are that it helps reduce itchiness of the skin, it’s dense in mineral content and
it draws the toxins and impurities out from the skin. Some things to consider, a little messy to
prepare and apply as you can see here. It clings to the arm and leg hair so it might
be a little bit painful to remove if you keep it on for too long. I would recommend keeping it on for no longer
than 5 to 10 minutes before washing it off. Also, once you finish using it, it might leave
your skin a little bit red at first but this will go away, and it’s minor compared to the
many benefits of using bentonite clay. My wife has started selling natural skin care
products through Limelight by Alcone after a friend introduced us to two products from
the line that actually can help combat eczema. The Forty Cure Cream and One Drop Wonder. Forty Cure Cream comes from the tamanu seed
oil or the seeds of the “Forty Cure Tree” as it’s known to have many different healing
benefits. Forty Cure Cream moisturizes the skin, it
has a pretty good smell, it contains lavender sweet orange and Egyptian rose, and lavender
is also known to be a de-stressor. It’s anti-inflammatory and antibacterial,
and it’s not as oily as most other creams. Just apply to your skin and within a week
you’ll see a huge difference in the quality of your skin. One Drop Wonder is an oil extracted from a
single source: the pomifera fruit, much better known as the hedge apple or osage orange. The fruit itself had little to no purpose
besides the trees being planted to help contain livestock, until was discovered just how powerful
of a skin healing serum exist within the seeds of this fruit. One Drop Wonder heals eczema-scabbed skin
very quickly healing the damaged skin and maintaining the moisture within the skin. The cap also contains a dropper with a button
on the cap so it’s a little bit easier to apply to the skin. It costs a little more money for these products
but their ability to repair and heal the skin is well worth the investment. You can find both products at the link below
in the description. The final remedy that we have to show you
is Aveeno’s Eczema Therapy moisturizer. It keeps the skin moist, it reduces the itchiness
caused by eczema, it’s easily portable and comes in many different sizes – there’s some
travel-size and your standard countertop pump bottle and the biggest plus is that it does
not contain corticosteroids. A few things to consider about this cream
is that it’s a little bit oily and contains more added ingredients than the other remedies
that we showed you earlier. Also, Aveeno products may not be cruelty-free
which means that they were tested on animals. This is something we didn’t discover until
later on after doing some research, but there is a cruelty-free alternative that we found,
and we included it in the video description below. One thing to keep in mind is if you try all
of these remedies out, you want to try to stick with each remedy for at least a few
days to a week, just to see if you get any results. Every person is different so some of the remedies
might work for you or might not. And again, even though there is no cure for
eczema, if you keep your skin well-moisturized and avoid things that might cause flare-ups,
your condition might be easier to manage. That’s all we got in the nutshell! Just a few different ways that you can maintain
your eczema using topical remedies. So, like, subscribe, and comment below! And give us some examples of how you treat
your eczema with home remedies. That’s all for now! Bye!
