Eczema is a problem affecting many people around the world, causing dry, scaly, itchy plaques on the skin that can be prone to infection if irritated and scratched too badly. These areas may start as a small area and then expand to cover much of the body if not controlled properly, causing serious discomfort as well as being unsightly. Despite being a condition with topical symptoms, its underlying cause is related to the functioning of the immune and digestive systems, and as such improving the health of these will often assist with the alleviation of the condition itself.
A good diet rich in antioxidants, gelatin, vitamins A and C and zinc may help support the health of the skin and immune systems, and probiotics are increasingly popular for the prevention and relief of this irritating complaint.
My favourite balm
A lovely balm. I've found it heals minor wounds, chapped skin, rashes, sunburn etc in a very short time. Very soothing and hydrating to the skin. I never use anything else now for the conditions I just named. A big thankyou too to the wonderful staff at Healthpost for such a wonderful service you have given me.
My psoriasis would not respond to anything. It is now under control.
Was ready to try weaning myself off this product after a few nights of unbearable scratching I resumed use and sleep returned. This is a wonderful product, if you suffer from chronic eczema you really need to invest in some. Other probiotics just do not work as well.
