I Beat It

Greetings All!

I checked this site out a year and a half ago (or so) to find many Eczema sufferers like me. Thank you all for the insights that each of you provided on the forums, with your possible cures and avenues to explore!

It is now my turn to return the favor!

I am pleased to report that I am now Eczema free due to some recomendations and suggestions I received from this community!

No, I am not a Sales Person.

How did I do it....or more importantly, how do I "think "I did it?

I will be honest. Alcohol consumption was one of my weaknesses. I still drink, but I have eliminated beer from my diet, and have substituted a lime fruit juice chaser after tipping back a shot of vodka. I know, I know, condemn me, still working on it, forgive me.

I have increased my seafood diet to 75% of meals per week as well as getting a bunch more sunshine when and often as I can.

No more Excema! Gone -History -Hasta la vista Baby!

FYI Folks, I had this treated first by my Primary Care Physician, who referred me to the Dermatology Dept., Fletcher Allen Hospital, Burlington, Vt.

A hospital Staff Dermatologist prescribed pricy cortizone creams that just kept it at bay. When aked if the cream would cure it, he said there was no cure. I asked what caused it,,,he said stress. That did not compute with me. I asked if it had dietary causes, the ? Doctor said no.,there were studies being conducted.

So, Guys and Dolls, take a look at your own personal diet, alcohol consumption, Omega 3 from the sea, and exposure to Vitamin D from sunlight.

I am not a Doctor, but I do not use this pricey cream and I do not have Excema any more!

I hope this information may ultimately help.

Thank you all again for helping me!

Seafood huh? I havent heard about omega 3 having an effect, you know anywhere with details about it?<br />
<br />
I've had suspicions that beer might have something to do with it, I'm wondering if it's a gluten thing.
