Eczema sufferers???????
If you PM me, I will share more info with you. Otherwise, all I really want to say is...

If you suffer from Eczema please research Scabies and Sarcoptic Mange.

After 15 years of suffering, I think I found the source of my problem.

I hope this information helps someone.

Be Well,

Lilyhoney

2. I hope this helps you.
After many doctors and creams and 15 years of SUFFERING, I have found thru my own research that what I suffered from was indeed mange.

I treat my cats and dog with the Revolution product to keep the mange off of me. It really works. ( Advantage does not work on mange.)

My first step to wellness started with antibiotics that treated the secondary infection that open wounds facilitate. Which helped to put my immune system back up to par.

Next was to treat the pets.

I never found a doctor to take me seriously, or vet for that matter. I just got to the point where I demanded what I wanted.

Wikipedia was a great resource. As well as many other sources for mange on the web.

If you don't have pets, then maybe one or both of you work closely with the elderly or children or in a medical facility. Or you repeatidly come in contact with another mange victum.

Yes, the hard part is finding a doctor to take you seriously.

I am free of the itching. I had it on my breasts, ears, neck, mouth, eyes, hands, arms, and legs.

My husband never got it. I assume it is because our immune systems are different. I also had head lice every year as a child in school, while others never got it.

Do the research and look for cycles and patterns of outbreaks.

Research...Demodetic Mange, Sarcoptic Mange which are what it is called in dogs and Scabies in humans.

It sounds horrible to say out loud " I have scabies". But it feels alot worse to scratch yourself bloody.

I truely hope that you do the research and you find some relief.

All I know is I am well now and I had the power all along to heal myself from that nasty dis-ease.

Be well. Lilyhoney

3. I've had it since I was an infant
It flares up during the summer months and especially during times of stress, especially on the back of my neck and on one side of my face for some reason.

4. Try teatree oil directly on sore spots.
That is what I put on myself while treating the pets with the Revolution.

Please do the research I mentioned in my post above. And be patient. See if your symptoms follow the life cycle of the scabies.

Do you have pets? work in medical or nursing or childrens facility?

I have to go to work now. But I would like to add more to this post later.

I want everyone to feel better.

5. I turn canned air upside down and spray it on the itchy area.

It stops itching.

I wouldn't recommend it, however. It's probably not safe. But the overpriced slime does not work on several spots; and I've been prescribed with the strongest stuff too.
