Hi everyone, I'm new to this site and this is my first post so here it goes.
I developed Eczema in my early 20s and the Doctors told me it was stress related as I was going through a very difficult time with a partner.
I had it in all the typical areas eg back of the knees, elbow creases etc. It was incredibly sore and itchy and would get worse after a night of sleep as I'd itch in my sleep.
I tried E45, Aqueas (sp?) cream, different emollient lotions and creams and nothing worked and if it did it would only be a very temporary solution.
I then discovered a natural cream from a company called Sweet Cecily's. It's called Soothing Skin cream. It contains borage and propolis which is known for it's anti inflammatory properties.
I think one of the problems with using emollients is that they may sooth but they do not HEAL, which is what you want when you have a skin condition such as Eczema.
The thing with the soothing skin cream is that it's all natural so none of the ingredients are harmful to skin and it does genuinely heal.
Anyway, I just really wanted to share my story and also see if I could help others who were suffering.
The website I got the cream from is sweetcecilys.com
Hope the info I've given in this post helps someone!
