Like many of you reading this article, I have suffered with Eczema for as long as I can remember. In my younger years the Eczema was more of a nuisance, with flaky skin that left lighter spots on my arms and legs; not a big deal. Back then, we spent so much time outside that it wouldn’t be noticeable for long.
Now that I spend much more time indoors (making a living) the eczema has become more intense and painful. It started with the area around my eyes and eyelids. The skin would thicken and become painful, so much so, that it was affecting my vision. Not long after that, patches appeared on my neck and spread to my upper chest.
When I say it was painful, it felt as if I had a chemical burn, or I stayed out in the sun way too long, but there was no blistering or severe redness, just lot’s of thick flaky skin patches. The pain and itching was non-stop for weeks at a time, it never let up. The only thing I could find to clam the pain was unrefined (raw) Shea Butter. I would spread the Shea butter all over my neck and chest and the pain would go away in seconds. No other cream would kill the pain as quickly and completely as the Shea Butter. If you want to try this, do not use the refined or cosmetic type, it contains chemicals and perfumes that will make your skin burn like wildfire when you apply it. Get the highest quality (unprocessed, raw) Shea Butter you can find. Here is a link to the Shea Butter that I purchase from Amazon AAA Shea Butter Premium Grade A Unrefined.
If you have suffered from the same symptoms I have described, you have probably tried every conceivable remedy. I know, because, over the years, I have spent thousands of dollars on oils, vitamins, light treatments or anything I thought would help, but nothing worked for more than few days at a time. Finally, I decided I couldn’t take it anymore, so I made an appointment with a dermatologist. That decision turned out to be one of the best decisions I’ve ever made.
Finally, help has arrived:
The dermatologist diagnosed me with eczema and started my treatment with some strong medications to kill the bacteria on my skin, she called it “putting out the fire”.
Once the fire had been put out, the second course of action was to put me on a non-steroid medication that I could use on my face and neck. The medication she prescribed was Neosaulus cream. This is the cream that, at long last, saved me from my eczema pain, thick skin and horrible flaking. I use the Neosalus cream every day (after a shower) and it makes my skin feel amazing. I finally feel like my skin has is holding moisture and protecting me from the irritants that used to drive it crazy every day. I never thought I would feel this way again.
The Neosalus cream, and my dermatologist have given me back my skin (and my sanity) and I am extremely grateful. Do yourself a favor, get control of your eczema and stop the daily suffering. See a dermatologist.
