    How do you ease eczema around the eyes, I have tried everything, any ideas?

    I have tried, creams from the doctor which have thinned my skin, coconut oil, olive oil, natural cucumber gels, I seem to have tried everything, including Vaseline!

    It may require a change in diet. If you have used all of that to no avail then a diet change would be the next logical step. I actually have a hub on the foods to stay away from and natural remedies for eczema (hate to plug a hub like that but easier than retyping that much info). You might want to read it an see if there is anything helpful. My middle child had it horribly all over his body. We have now gotten it to a point of small spots during certain times of the year. Aloe and coconut oil are our go to natural treatments now and we have changed his diet completely.

    Try to avoid using soap/shower gel or any form of cleansers on your face if possible. Even moisturisers can exacerbate eczema. I have never had it on my face but mostly on both hands. Stress/anxiety can be a trigger factor, however in my case I found that excessive washing of my hands tended to dry out the skin, resulting in cracking, red patches, itchiness and even swelling and tiny blisters when my skin got really "angry".

      I do try to use very little on my face, but I do use moisturisers, that is how my hands get too, but it is so awful when it is your face, thanks for answering.  Angry is a good word

    My son has severe eczema.  The doctor prescribed a steroid topical at first.  The one thing that I found works the best is Triple Paste. It's a diaper rash cream, but it has beeswax in it.  I would try Burt's Bee chapstick and see if that helps!

    My son had eczema on his face and creams weren't working. He went back to the doctors, they said it could be related to yeast infection. Since using a prescribed anti-fungal cream he's felt a big improvement.

    hi! I've seen a lot who used anti-fungal cream for their eczema. It is really effective. But sometimes, it comes back again. So, I recommend trying blood type diet. It works well with any health problems. You only have to eat plenty of foods that are suitable and are easily digestible by your blood type. For me, I'm an O. So, I do away with foods like corn, nuts and dairies which can trigger allergens and can easily give type O skin itchiness and infections. I think the worsening or flaring-ups of eczema and other skin infections has something to do with stress. So, you have to eat foods that can normalize the level of your stress hormones. I can share info regarding that if you want. I'm sure it will help--a lot!

    Vaseline helped my youngest son when he was a child, which was what I was going to suggest. Eczema as well as other skin conditions have been linked to dysbiosis, an imbalance in the intestinal flora. The skin is an outward manifestation of what is going on inside the body. My recommendations are, like the others have stated, include diet, eliminate as much sugar, and processed food as possible. Sugar feeds fungus, and yeast thereby contributing to the problem. Include fresh fruits, and vegetables, these will supply pre-biotics that feed the good bacteria in the intestines. Probiotics to supply, and replenish the good guys, that fight off infection. Include plain yogurt in the diet, as well. If the ezcema is in fact a fungus infection, it will respond to topical applications of plain yogurt. Another topical and natural anti infective is olive leaf, it is gentle enough to not Flare the condition, or make it "angry" apply before bedtime, and leave on. Remove in the am with, a gentle splash of water. Do not scrub.
    I am going to assume that youve already gone the route of discontinuing all makeup, and creams, in an attempt to see if its just an allergic reaction. A food diary may also be helpful, as food allergies may also be the culprit.
    Resent clinical trials have found a link between vitamin D3, and chronic skin conditions. If you live in the north, chances are you're deficient. 20IU per pound of body weight is the usual therapeutic dosage for chronic conditions.
    As well as topical applications to affected areas. A cream has recently come on the market for skin conditions. A liquid gel cap punctured with a straight pin, squeeze the capsule, and apply topically to the affected area.
    I have written an article about skin conditions … -Psoriasis
    which contains doseage amounts, and were to obtain the suggested supplements.
    I hope this helps
