Physical Symptoms & Signs of Healing from Eczema

•       Old eczema wounds, cuts, and infected lesions will heal first.  So if the eczema starts on your ankle and spreads to your toes, then the skin on the ankle will heal first.

•       The wetness from the skin excretion, which is lymph fluids, decreases and then stops completely before the skin starts to heal.  The skin in the final stages of healing will be much dryer and much more itchy. However, when you scratch, the skin will not feel damp or ooze lymph fluids any more.  You can actually scratch very hard and the skin will not break.  You will still shed some skin but not as much.

•       The new skin will be soft, pink in color, and thin looking but so much tougher than before so in case you scratch, the skin won’t break. There is discolouration in the skin, but that will normalize in time.

•       The new skin may have white flaky stuff on it that looks like fungus but that soon will disappear.  If you scratch, the white flaky layer of skin will fall off looking like stirred snow flakes.

•       You’ll start having less itching at night and can sleep normal again.

•       When you touch the skin that has eczema, it no longer feels hot.  When you have full blown eczema and you touch your skin, you can feel so much heat under the skin.  But as you are healing, the skin temperature where the eczema is will feel normal like the other parts of your skin.

•       You will be able to shower and water won’t hurt or sting your skin any longer.

    1. The burning is such an awful symptom…it’s basically inflammation in the skin. It’s just trying to heal so the deep itch, tingling and burning feelings are all feelings of healing with the nerves kinda “re-firing” and “re-working” again. Check out itsan.org and the q & a section for more info. You can shoot me an email at eczema.holistic.healing@gmail.com for more natural tips, info and remedies!
      Take care 💜

      1. So the burning is not a bad symptom , is it ? .. It burns when I stand and it even burns and sting when I take a shower , is it OK to put hot or cold water on the affected area , I got eczema where my leg got burned with hot cooking oil and it’s still haven’t heal completely , I just got skin to the affected burned area and after few days got eczema … so is it healing ??

      2. Putting an ice pack can help, eating cooling foods and anti inflammatory foods will help as well. Stay well hydrated and eat lots of fruits. Lavender essential oil helps burns…I got burned a few days ago on my finger with a hot pot handle and using the lavender took the burn down & it didn’t blister. Here’s where I get my EO’s from: http://www.mydoterra.com/debraahall1 . Give it some time to heal, it will in time. Make sure you’re getting movement in everyday to get good circulation going on to help healing.

      3. Hi Jen! This information has helped me so much! I experienced a severe outbreak of eczema all over my body within 2 weeks due to mold/mildew in my apartment at college. I have dealt with eczema in the past but never to this extent and severity (usually just between my arms behind the elbow) I tried various natural remedies to no avail during those 2 weeks and finally had to go home for the weekend to see a doctor who prescribed me prednisone and topical betamethasone. I know that eczema comes from the inside out but I’m a healthy, active person (workout regularly/eat clean) and the severe flare up I experienced was totally unexpected and definitely due to the environment I was living in, as I was perfectly okay before I left for college. Not gonna lie, I am afraid of experiencing a flare up once I’m off these two treatments. The eczema on my arms have slowly been flaking off and last night I woke up to fresh new skin as the skin on my arms completely flaked off. I know this is a good sign but the skin does feel a little dry. What steps do you recommend I take once I’m off the treatments prescribed by my doctor in order to decrease my chances of experiencing another flare up? I am already moving out of the apartment so that is one huge step. Also, what can I put on this fresh layer of skin? I’ve been applying vaseline occasionally over my topical treatment when it feels dry but I’m not sure what to apply on this fresh layer of skin. I have to continue with the topical treatment till next Saturday and will be onto my 3rd day of the prednisone i was prescribed for 5 days. Any help and tips would be much appreciated! Thank you so much!!❤

      4. Hello Ariana! Thanks for checking out my site and reaching out to me, I’m so glad the info I’ve provided has resonated with you! I’m glad you were able to pinpoint the flare up to the mold in your apartment and I’m glad that you’ve made steps to move out of there. You will indeed have to get off of the medication and I hope that you won’t have a terrible withdrawal from it, but beware that it is possible to feel detox symptoms when getting off of it. I can for sure help you, and will be emailing you a health questionnaire where I can get to know you better and assist with your situation. I would avoid vaseline as it is a petrochemical and not made of natural ingredients. You want to always stick to the rule of thumb that if you can essentially eat it then you can apply it to the skin. Look at my page: Suggested Moisturizers and Soaps, you will benefit for sure with the organic micro algae lotion that I recommend on that page (you will also see testimonials of it too!) I look forward to reading your detailed answers in the questionnaire and I will get back to you with my responses as soon as I can! You WILL get through this, it can take some time, but the body knows exactly what it needs to do to heal!

        Take care and God bless,
        Jen

  1. Hi, great sharing! So precise!
    I’m glad coming across this article as I’m also in the stage before recovering, which my son recovered from eczema told me his experience. I just wanted to find out more about the process.
    U really helped me ease my mind that I’m now in the stage of healing.
    Thanks a zillion.

  2. Hi, I’m under Homeopathy treatment. Have u heard about it?
    I witnessed my son recovered from it that’s why I go for this treatment. It’s easier for us, we just take the doctor’s medicine, and normal diet, just eating as usual just avoid prawns which we are allergic to.
    The doctor told us to avoid brinja and chocolates.
    If we were to go for TCM (Chinese Medication), we have to almost stop eating a lot of things.
    I’m from Singapore. In here, we only have a few qualified Homeopathy doctors. I believed it must be kinda expensive. Why I’m not really sure the price, it’s because my doctor is a kind soul, he’s helping people out, not charging any consultation fees, just pay for the medicine, as one bottle is $13 to $15, which can last for one week or so. To us, it’s cheapest comparing to any other kind of doctors.
    When we see a GP, or going to skin specialist or Chinese doctors, it would cost up to at least $100 plus near to $200 each visit.
    Some people are saying this kind of treatment is placebo. But my son’s case is evidence.
    He can sweat, have fun like normal Person now. He’s looking handsome again.

    1. Hi Jaslyn,
      I wonder what are in the medicines that the Homeopathic doctor is prescribing. I’m very careful of all meds after having such a terrible experience with topical steroids. I believe the body truly doesn’t need anything to repair itself, but food (rest, exercise), and if need be some simple supplements and 100% pure essential oils to aid it in healing. I’m glad that he doesn’t charge you any consultation fees, that’s very kind of him, but I would look into the exact ingredients of the medications. I would be scared to know if there were steroids mixed into the meds somehow or some kind of chemical ingredients in them. It’s always best to go as natural as possible, and “let food be thy medicine”.

  3. Hi Hi

    Thanks so much for your blog. It helps me. I am going through the healing crisis now and my eczema is drying out and turning brown. Last night, my itch lasted the whole night through. When I scratch it, it doesn’t ooze or anything. Is that a sign of healing? My face is impacted my eczema as well. When I wake up in the morning, I noticed peeling / flaking of skin on certain parts of my face. Is that a good sign?

    1. Hi Cherylene! Thanks for reaching out to me! I’m sorry you’re going through this but the symptoms you’ve mentioned are all great signs of healing progress! Dry brush your skin with a dry Tampico fiber brush, this will help simulate the lymph system and slough off the dead skin. You must brush in an upward motion towards your heart (so like feet up to legs, wrists up to arms, neck down to heart, stomach upward to heart etc). It’s great that your skin is not oozing, that’s the most awful stage in my opinion! Shoot me an email and I can help you out with more tips! My email address is: eczema.holistic.healing@gmail.com ☺️
      Take care & God bless,
      Jen

      1. Hi Jen

        Thanks for your advise and support. It feel comforting to know that there are people whom I can share this experience with. By the way, do you know long the shredding period will be? My face is is super flaking all around.

        Best regards
        Cherylene

      2. You’re so welcome, I’m so glad I can be here to help! The symptoms that the body goes through vary in the length of time. For me the shedding seemed non stop (after the oozing and crusting period), but I liked that stage a whole lot more than the oozing for sure. It will all take time, but dry brushing like I mentioned will help, also make sure you’re getting exercise in every day this will stimulate the lymph too and aid in eliminating toxins.

  4. Hi Jen,
    First let me say thank you for sharing story. You are so brave and amazing. I don’t know if you truly realize how many people you are helping by your journey. So again thank you. To move forward to my question, I have been healing my eczema since May 2016 and went through TSW as well during the process. I am finally seeing the progress and have reached what feels like a dead end. I would say I am 85% there. The trouble I am having is dark, tight skin patches that are lifting as if they are going to flake off (that I peel off because I am annoyed and strangely get relief from it) and some red irritated places as well. What can I do to get off this hump?

    1. Hi Kellye! Wooweee! Thanks so much for your kind words! That truly means a lot to me! From the many people who have reached out to me, it has given me a sense that I am making a small impact from sharing my story. Comments like yours are just confirmation that i need to continue to put out more content and interact with my readers. Thank you ❤ ! Praise God that you are seeing progress! I know exactly what you are talking about with the flakes and how satisfying it is to peel them. Dry brushing will help a lot to stimulate the lymph system and to slough off the dead skin flakes. I still have some spots on my feet that are like this. I've been using an essential oil blend for discolouration that helps. It's with frankincense, geranium and sandalwood. The last batch I made I added lavender for the itch. There's more info on how I do it in the "Summer 2016" post (number 6) and where I get my therapeutic, high quality oils from. I'm going to send you a personal email so I can get to know you better and assist you more. It will be a health questionnaire which will help me understand your health history and what tips I can provide according to your situation.

      Take care & God bless,
      Jen

  5. Hi! Thank you so much for sharing! My eczema seems to be healing, and sometimes still flares up into red, raised patches. Despite that, I feel like I’m moving towards healing. I am experiencing the re-growth of hair in patches on my arms (where the eczema is/was), does this mean anything?

    Thank you,
    Gianna

    1. Hi Gianna! I’m glad this page was helpful to you! That’s great news that you’re skin is doing much better. I didn’t grow hair on my legs for awhile when it was at its worst, now it’s grown in even though I still have some flaky areas. The re-growth of hair is a great sign, to me it says that the intense flaring has subsided to where the follicles are strong enough to start to regrow hair. I pray you have continued healing progress!
      Take care & God bless,

    1. Hi Salina! Thanks for reaching out to me! I’m so sorry to hear how you’ve been feeling. I know how depressing this condition can make us. You gotta stay strong and hold on! You CAN and WILL heal! Eczema is your body trying to tell you there’s something wrong internally. You’re not cleansing properly and the body is showing it through the skin. I’ll send you more info on all of this. I’ll email you my health questionnaire that I want you to fill out in detail. I’ll help in anyway I can 💜 keep believing for healing and believing in your body’s natural capability to heal itself, just gotta give it the right tools; healthy food, hydration, love, exercise and rest. I look forward to your responses!
      Take care & God bless,

      1. Hi, I need help too. I’m trying to detox my body for 4 weeks now and started seeing numerous little bumps on my arms and legs where I never had eczema and they itchy. Not sure if they are rashes or hives or new discoid eczema coming out. V worried.. . Not sure if I’m on the right track in my detox. Appreciate it if you could contact me through my email.
        Thanks a lot!

      2. Hi Mavyn! I’d be glad to help! It’s common to experience a healing crisis for sure so don’t be alarmed. I’ll send the email right away and I look forward to your detailed responses! I’ll get back to you with my suggestions as soon as I can!
        Take care & God bless,
        Jen

    1. You’re welcome! I’m glad that you’re finding healing! Eczema on the hands is the worst, just water alone can burn and sting. Happy healing to you! ❤
      Take care & God bless,
      Jen

      1. Oh my gosh yes! It has gotten much worse since having a baby 4 months ago. I began washing my hands much more and we all know that’s not good for eczema! 😣
        Thanks for writing this blog! I’m looking at all your info now and it’s really amazing!

      2. Oh wow congrats!! Yup my hands get dried out really fast from lots of washing too. You’re so welcome! I can email you a health questionnaire if you’d like and I can share more natural tips with you 🙂

      1. That’s great to hear Mary! I’m so glad you’re not experiencing those awful symptoms. The burning is so terrible. You would greatly benefit from this algae lotion that I sell to help with the patches: https://www.teamnewearth.com/2191498/ProductDetail?ID=21675 There are testimonials of the lotion on my “Suggested Moisturizers & Soaps” page if you’re interested to see how my customers like it! I hope this helps!

  7. Thank you.. my youngest daughter has had severe eczema from age 3-18.. we’ve tried just about every OTC medicine, a ton of prescriptions and we’ve finally gotten it fairly under control. She read this today and shared it with me and thank God she’s in the final stage and man is is happy!! It’s so hard as a parent trying to stay calm and positive when she’s crying in pain and upset. You’ve given us hope.. and that’s a wonderful thing. God bless you.

    1. Hi Charmaine! You’re welcome, I’m so glad this could give you guys some comfort! I do hope that she isn’t using any steroids and has taken a more natural approach. Any OTC won’t get to the root cause and heal, it only masks the symptoms. Healing comes from the inside out. I can email you a health questionnaire to get some tips and such for healing. God bless!
      -Jen

    1. That’s a great sign! Keep hydrated with lots of water, and fresh fruit. Do some dry brushing too, this will help to stimulate the lymph system, and slough off any dead skin. I’ll send you an email of a health questionnaire where I can get to know you better and provide some tips for more healing! It will take time for the texture to smooth out, I’m still experiencing it too, but it’s slowly going away. You can also try out the organic micro blue green algae I mention in the Moisturizers page on my blog. Here’s the direct link for it at my store: https://www.teamnewearth.com/2191498/ProductDetail?ID=21675
      I hope all of this helps! I look forward to your questionnaire response!
      Take care & God bless,

  8. Hi thanks for your sharing. May I know do u apply moisturizers over the dry n flaky skin or leaveit as it is? If u do is it normal that is itchy as u apply it over the skin?

    1. Hello Christopher! You’re very welcome! I think it’s best to dry brush the dry and flaky skin, check out this link on dry brushing: http://www.mindbodygreen.com/0-12675/a-step-by-step-guide-to-dry-skin-brushing.html You also just want to listen to your skin and see how it’s feeling and what it needs. If dry brushing and then washing with a good, natural soap like Dr.Bronners sensitive hemp soap will work then do so. You can lightly apply moisturizer after these steps and see how your skin feels. Sometimes you’re better off with leaving it alone, which some people like to call “moisture withdrawal” this allows the skin to produce it’s own natural oils. It can happen that the moisturizer makes the skin itchy, for me at the beginning stages coconut oil would make the skin extra itchy and I found that just not putting anything felt a lot better. I hope all of this helps! I’ll email you a health questionnaire, and you can fill it out if you’d like, it will allow me to provide more natural healing tips for you!
      Take care & God bless,
      Jen

      1. Hi Jen, I sent you email, quite lengthy one. I am pretty sure I’m in the healing crisis now, but I wanted to share with you coz I’m scared and sometimes I get doubts as to whether I am doing the right thing. The eczema on my feet are in dark, brown crusts now that are peeling off, and just today, peeled quite a chunk out and revealed healthy looking skin underneath! It was smooth and pinkish in color, like you said. Beat part is it doesn’t sting nor itch! Does this mean I am near complete healing?

      2. Hi Anna! Those are great signs of healing! I know it’s hard, but do your best to not pick and pull off the skin but to let those scabs fall off on their own. I know, it’s super tempting and very satisfying to do so lol, but you want it to naturally come off, and not rip any healthy skin off along with the scab you know? I’ll reply back to your email as soon as I can, and it’s no problem if it’s a lengthy one! I’m happy to read, and help in anyway that I can 🙂

        Take care & God bless,
        Jen

  9. Thank you Jen! You know, I was just picking at the scabs as I read your response! Good thing you told me! Haha! I had to stop immediately! Yay! What an encouragement! Thank God there are people like you who help people in desperation. I hope you know what you do means a lot to me, and I’m sure, to others like me as well. ❤️

  10. Hello …am so glad I came across this ..have had eczema for 3 months now ..tried every medication still wasn’t seeing improvements …I met this dermatologist who has helped Me a lot .I use Shea oil and some prednisolone capsule which have really helped …the only problem now is that my skin is very flaky and I see alot of dead skin cells which has made my skin real dark ..what do u suggest I use to remove this

    1. Hello Amoakoa!
      Thanks for reaching out! I’m glad this info resonated with you. Unfortunately no medication will ever heal and get to the root cause of eczema. The prednisone is something that I recommend you get off as well as it’s a steroid just taken orally. It will only manage the symptoms and eventually when you stop taking it just like with the creams you’re skin will freak out and flare up because it’s actually withdrawing from the meds and trying to cleanse. It’s a vicious cycle and you’ll end up always needing to be on these medications. The shea butter is great to use! Only use natural emollients on the skin. You could benefit from the micro algae lotion that I recommend and sell, you can see some testimonials for it in the “Suggested Soaps & Moisturizers” section. Also take a look at the section: “Info Videos on TSA & TSW”. I’ll shoot you an email with a questionnaire, with it I can get to know you better and help assist you in this healing process! I look forward to your detailed responses!

      Take care & God bless,
      Jen

  11. Greetings. I am having a terrible Eczema outbreak right now and both my hands especially my fingers are having huge blisters and some are leaking liquids. It gives me hard time to work and i see no progress or any healing signs, thus, it just keeps popping up and blisters become bigger. Any response and tips/advises will be greatly appreciated. Thanks.

    1. Hi Aldrin! Sheesh that sounds painful! I remember having those blisters but it was on the bottom of my feet! It’s so annoying! The liquid is just lymph fluid so nothing to be alarmed about, the body is just using any avenue it can to get the toxins out and for you it’s coming in the form of blisters. I’ll send you my health questionnaire I’d like you to fill out for me so I can provide natural healing suggestions for you. Hang in there!
      Take care & God bless,
      Jen

  12. I am so excited to have come across this thread. I am looking forward to checking out the rest of your blog! Could you send me your health questionnaire as well?! I could sure uee some advice!

  13. Hi Jen! I have been suffering with chronic eczema for 4 years now. It covers me literally from head to toe front and back. I have stopped using steroids for a month now. One day I got the idea to brush my skin with a soft brush. When I did, a lot of flakes came off so I jumped in the tub and even more came off. Lately my skin has been flaking in patches revealing pink skin. I thought it was my skin thinning from the steroids. My breasts are almost entirely pink. I was freaking out until I ran across your blog. My skin on my lower body is still weeping when I scratch. Sometimes it weeps randomly so badly I have to wrap myself in towels to dry my skin. Is this a good sign? Thanks

    1. Hi Shareda! I’m so glad you stopped using the steroids, they never get to the root cause of the eczema and heal it. You seem to be indeed going through the withdrawal process. It can be pretty awful but you WILL get through this! The pink skin is just a fresh layer of healthy skin trying to come through. The body will go through cycles and layers and layers of skin will shed. The weeping can be awful but it is neccessary in detox. It is the metabolic waste needed to be eliminated. These are all good signs that the body is cleansing, it will get worse before it gets better (healing crisis), but hang in there! I will send you a health questionnaire that I’d like you to fill out, it will help me to get to know you better and I can assist with what you’re experiencing.
      Take care & God bless,
      Jen

  14. WOW! This was Awesome! I loved reading all of this. I have had eczema all my life. Been teased, ashamed…. But this helped more than anyone can imagine. Thank God for all of you being put in my path. God Bless! Jen I appreciate you!

    1. Awww thank you Tamela and God bless you too! I’m so glad this info resonated with you! I will email you a health questionnaire so I can be able to provide you with some natural healing tips & such! I know it can be rough & people can be cruel but don’t ever be ashamed of how you look, you are a masterpiece and a child of the Most High God! Eczema is actually a “good health issue to have” in a sense because it lets us know something isn’t right on the inside, so it sends is a wake up call by showing up on the skin. You WILL overcome this! Just hang in there 🙂
      Take care & God bless,
      Jen

      1. Trust me Jen just reading this was more helpful then any medicine or doctors. You help me feel better. Trust me I will be in touch! Thanks a bunch!

  15. Jen,Do you recommend Eucrisa(crisabole) for the treatment of eczema? It is non steroidal but I don’t know if it’s natural and could be used long term safely.Thanks julie

    1. No, I wouldn’t use that cream on your skin. You have to keep in mind that anything that you apply to the skin is going to be absorbed into the bloodstream, only use natural moisturizers like coconut oil, jojoba, shea butter etc. Check out my suggested soaps and moisturizers page on my blog. I will send you a health questionnaire that you can fill out if you like to get more natural healing tips and suggestions!
      Take care & God bless,
      Jen

  16. Jen,

    I came across your blog by just Googling eczema healing symptoms in hope that I may be experiencing some of these. I have been in the worst depression and condition over the past month and up to that I think and hope is the worst of this condition that is covering my body. I have read above that drier and itchy skin is indeed a good sign and that gives me some relief. I still have some oozing, a lot of flaking and some scratching. I have changed my diet to only fruits and veggies. Thank you for sharing your story. It has given me hope. Thank you.

    1. ️️Hi Christian! Aw man, I’m sorry to hear about your suffering, don’t give up hope it WILL get better! Just remember suffering won’t last forever and even though it may seem like you’ll never crawl out that dark hole you will see the light again! I’m glad my info resonated with you, I’ll email you a health questionnaire and you can fill it out if you’d like and I can give you more natural healing tips according to your personal situation. I’m glad you’re being proactive with your diet, eating vegan has helped me and many others Sooo much! Hang in there, I look forward to reading your responses to the questionnaire!
      Take care & God bless,
      Jen

  17. Thank you Jen. I will read that right now. It seems like I see what I think is a good sign I experience more of what I think is not a good sign.

      1. Hello jen I just want to make a suggestion ..I think Palmer’s cocoa butter lotion helps too .been using it for some months now and am seeing tremendous changes

      2. Hello jen..so currently I have flare ups ..but my they look more like itchy goosebumps …I don’t know if that’s OK ..been using a lot of coconut oil and olive oil mixtures as my moisturizer ..then I add organic Shea butter too …I want to know if it’s normal …am off steroids now

      3. Hi there! Yea the skin can go through many different symptoms when going through a healing crisis. Sometimes it’s good to just let it be and do moisture withdrawal, which allows the body’s natural oils to try to produce. But all the moisturizers you are using are great for the skin. You can try doing a bentonite clay paste on the skin as well, this helps to draw out impurities in the skin. You take one part clay to two parts water and stir with your finger let it sit (you don’t wanna use metal spoons or bowls because it will deactivate the magnetic charge in it). Then you apply to the skin (freshly washed and dried) untill it dries or as long as you can and then wash it off. Are these bumps filled with fluid at all?

  18. Hi,
    Just came across this blog. I recently got married and my husband has severe skin dryness I am not even sure what he has. He says its eczema but I think it might be psoriasis, really not sure. He has tried a bunch of different creams, in fact I find him trying different stuff every week. He itches and stays up all night long and his irritation is causing a hindrance in our intimacy. He also flakes everywhere! When he scratches its like snow is falling and there is a layer of dust on everything. He brought me coffee and the lid had a layer of skin flakes. I am starting to get kinda grossed out by it and a little annoyed since we are both not able to sleep at night. He is a great guy and cares for me a lot. I really want to help him find something that works so that he can stop being so miserable and we can both sleep and live more comfortably.

    1. Hi there! Thanks for checking out my site and reaching out on behalf of your husband. Having eczema isn’t easy for sure and it can be embarrassing at times dealing with this condition. It’s great to have a good support system to heal through this. If he’s been using topical steroids for his skin he’s going to need to withdrawal from them because they are just a band aid and never get to the root cause of the eczema. He’s going to need your care and support for sure through the withdrawal process. Healing only comes from the inside out and it will get worse before it gets better. I will email you a health questionnaire that I send to those who contact me needing support. For my services I accept a donation of any amount (whatever is in your heart to give) to my paypal account. If this is something you think your husband will be interested in, you can have him fill it out in detail and I’ll get back to you with my responses as soon as I can. He WILL get through this and he can lead a healthier life with great skin, it can just take some time and patience but the body is self healing, amazing and never makes mistakes. I hope all this helps, also check out my natural antihistamine post for the itch, it’s a great remedy that has helped me and others! https://eczemaholistichealing.com/2017/06/30/my-natural-anti-histamine-remedy/
      I look forward to hearing from you ☺️
      Take care & God bless,

    1. I do eat wheat but I make sure it’s whole grain, not white flour, 100% organic and oil free. Sprouted wheat breads are even better because the sprouted grains in them are full of enzymes and easier on the digestive system. Even with the wheat I try to not do it too much as I notice if I over do it it can make me constipated. So I eat gluten free foods but for like breads I’ll make my own (buckwheat flour, oat flour, etc). A lot of g-free stuff out there can be too processed so beware. If you have a gluten intolerance like celiac then avoid it, but otherwise it’s fine in not crazy amounts.

  19. I’m in the burning and hot, itching stage. I have it itnaround my neck chest and ears. People stare at me so much. I feel so depressed and like all I want to do is hide in my house. I’m so blessed to find this site, because I. Oh don’t feel alone. Does anyone have any recommendations for cream or something soothing and what about clothes. It hurts to wear shorts that hit my chest and neck. I’m trying to watch my triggers, it’s mostly so far caffeine and mold and some gluten. But have a huge flare up now.

  20. Hi Jen,
    I just want to let everyone know visiting this page that Jennifer is AMAZING! If you are at standstill with TSW or just trying to understand more about your eczema she is such a great and knowledgeable person to talk to. I went through TSW for 18 months and now I am 95% healed. I am healing from Hyper-pigmentation and scarring, but THAT IS IT! I know as someone who suffered from TSW that we can get consumed in the negative, but I am so thankful for her guidance and support. With her tips and my holistic doctor’s help, I can finally say I have healed from TSW. Thanks Jen! And stay strong TSW warriors!

    1. Kellye! Wow, this comment just made my day! 💜 Thanks so much for the love girl! I’m so glad to hear that you are so far along in your healing! Praise God! 🙏 I know the road is tough but I’m glad you’ve endured and are in such a better place! Yes I’m still dealing with the discolouration too unfortunately but I know it will even out. I continue to alternate with the micro algae lotion: https://eczemaholistichealing.com/suggested-creams-and-soaps/ and my diy essential oil creams with geranium, frankincense (sometimes myrrh) , and sandalwood for the discolouration (my EOs store link: http://www.mydoterra.com/debraahall1 ) Keep your diet plant based, super hydrated, antioxidant rich and anti inflammatory which will help with skin health. Also make sure to get some sun, that good vitamin D will help restore as well. Thanks for encouraging my readers as well! You rock!
      Take care & God bless,
      Jen
