Apologies for the long story but I had to just share my experience with eczema and treatments as I have been suffering with eczema for the last 4 years and I finally am able to live a 'normal' life.
As mentioned I had been suffering with eczema for the last 4 years, my shoulders, arms and fingers all had small red scaly patches that were constantly itchy and inflamed which I had been treating with hydrocortisone cream.
However I noticed I had started to needed to use more and more cream over the years to treat my eczema which is obviously not a good thing as I learnt that steroid based creams can have side effects.
Out of sheer desperation I scoured the internet to find an alternative and after trying many products and on the verge of giving up I found a natural shea butter & apricot oil moisturiser.
What a relief!! After applying the butter to my body the itching stopped and within just two days the redness had disappeared and I literally cried tears of joy!
I once was sceptical, but I highly recommend natural products as after a month of using this natural moisturiser my scaly patches have faded and my symptoms are gone!
I now feel confident wearing sleeveless tops in public and wearing a bikini on holiday.
