For those who suffer from eczema or dermatitis, natural treatment of the disease is pretty much the only way to go that makes sense. While steroids and other prescription drugs do provide temporary relief and may even be necessary in times of crisis, long-term treatment should be based on natural remedies as much as possible.
I’ve been diagnosed with atopic dermatitis when I was a child, and was told that there is no cure for this disease. During my teenage years I was thankfully mostly symptom-free, but the disease made a heavy comeback in my twenties, giving me some pretty harsh times. However in my thirties, I finally found ways to reduce the symptoms to a minimum, by 90% or more. No miracle drug helped me do that — not until I changed my lifestyle and habits did my condition improve.
I will spare you the description of what my skin looked like when I was at my worst. If you suffer from dermatitis yourself then you will probably know what despair feels like. Suffice it to say that I ended up being hospitalized twice for several weeks with multiple infections… At that time, it really didn’t look like I would ever have a healthy skin again without heavy use of cortisone or other prescription drugs!
