vaseline is greasy. Coconut oil is anti microbial.. I made a nice moisturizer starting by soaking flax seeds in water and seperating the gel. I then whipped the gel with coconut oil until it made a thick cream. It is pretty good to put on skin or hair or fruit.

From my personal experience, eating spicy food (peppers), and also dry and hot weather make eczema worse, while eating just boiled Zucchinis with plain bread, not only heal eczema but a ton of other diseases including stomach.

I don't even understand what the point of talking about penises in this video is. Seems very gimmicky. I am also not a fan of petroleum jelly. As someone, who's now in my mid 30s and has suffered from severe eczema my whole life, I can tell you this: Eczema symptoms are HIGHLY influenced by what you put on and in your body. Change your diet to take away highly inflammatory food (I gave up gluten 14 years ago due to this) get rid of all of the body care products that are full of garbage ingredients that will irritate the skin. To make a long story short, I went from head to toe eczema, with large cracks going down the palms of my hands (where I couldn't even close my hands or bend my fingers) to now only having two affected fingers. My eczema these days is generally mild and manageable. I've made huge changes in my lifestyle, diet, products I use on my skin. I have been tested for all kinds of allergies and rare diseases like Porphyria (which I did not seem to show diagnostic markers of.) I've seen more dermatologists and allergists than I can count, who eventually ran out of treatment options for me. In the last few years I've had my genes tested and developed a vitamin/supplement plan with Functional Medicine Practitioner. All of the steroid creams, oral medications, injections, barrier creams and whatever else in the world will NOT balance out the symptoms you're having if you don't start treating the triggers that are causing the problems. You also pay a huge price in the side effects caused by these drugs. You will also build up a tolerance to them and need to use more and more over time. If I had been treating the triggers instead of the symptoms, I don't think I'd even be dealing with eczema that I have these days. Thirty some odd years of steroid creams have left the skin on my hands thin and highly sensitive. I now wear fingerless gloves when I leave the house and powder free vinyl (the only material that won't irritate my skin, since I'm sensitive to rubber accelerant chemicals) when doing anything around the house that involves getting my hands dirty. Good luck to everyone, eczema can be an emotionally draining, painful condition to deal with.

All the penis humor had me laughing out loud, but now I really would feel uncomfortable about sending a link to this video to a female friend/coworker who suffers from eczema. So it sort of limits the ability to raise the awareness levels of people other than your closest friends by forwarding this type of information to them. And that is sad.

Mine acts up around my neck twice a year at the same time. It just started a few years back. There's a spot on my calf also that only flares up at the same time. I use coconut oil to stop the itching but it goes away on its own but comes back later in the year so I chalked it up to being allergies. It's environmental I'm sure and I can't afford to move to a less industrial area. I mix coconut oil and shea butter together.

I've been able to finally control my eczema by first applying some apple cider vinegar (1p acv, 1p water) and then following it up with coconut oil. Works much better than the steroid cream I've used for years! Coconut oil alone didn't help much though...

Coconut oil never worked for me. In fact, it dries out my skin. Maybe because what I have is more than just eczema. I’ve been going through Topical Steroid Withdrawal for 19 months and my skin has been so tricky. Things that worked in the past doesn’t work for me now.

My Holistic Life
Great video, thank you and LOL at all the penis studies you seemed to keep stumbling across during your research!! As a seasoned eczema sufferer, I completely agree with your findings, the vaseline/emollient data mirrors my own experience (minus the penis enlargement) despite many "miracle creams" being shoved at me by various vendors including some containing lanolin (what the heck! I'm allergic!!), none actually does much, so I've always stuck to decent emollients and steroid creams. I know steroid creams may not be ideal when it comes to side effects, but sometimes you've just got to scratch that itch, if you'll pardon the pun! My own skin is much better since quitting dairy, and these days I often use coconut oil as a moisturiser on my skin, but it's not a great barrier because it just isn't as thick as vaseline or mineral oil based products which is a shame. It gets absorbed or rubbed off way too fast to be useful for severely cracked, dry skin. Although fortunately, this isn't something I have to deal with much anymore. Very interesting to hear about licorice root cream! I'll look forward to trying that one. An interesting side note is that I find coconut oil heals dyshidrotic eczema extremely effectively, on a par, if not better than my prescription steroid antibiotic cream which was previously the only effective treatment.

The penis stuff, while extremely hilarious, was just way too distracting. I have eczema and I was trying to figure out what would work and at the end I had to actually rewind the video to figure out what he recommended cuz all I could think about was, "why is dr. Greger so obsessed with penis injections, I thought this was a video about eczema"!

I think dr. Greger just needs to stick to the nutrition facts and forgo the comedy show routine. This was like that terrible time you guys did those videos were Dr Gregor's head would pop up on the screen. LOL. Such a bad scene. You guys have a winning recipe. I would suggest that you stop trying to innovate and make it better. It's perfect just as it is.

The only thing that helped me was ice packs to relieve itching and reduce inflammation. When the rash wasn't weepy anymore shea butter was slightly helpful. Most topical applications would sting my skin even soap. The only soap I found that didn't sting is an Olive Oil Soap. Ultimately it was figuring out what was the cause that got rid of it and that was a food allergy to certain nuts and seeds.

Can you eat dates when you’re a food addict? Can you make sweets and baked goods out of plant foods when you’re a food addict? Or does it make you crave junk foods and make you fall back into addiction? And people that helps food addicts often talks about paleo and LCHF as a great diet to break free from food addiction/sugar addiction/junk food addiction and that you should be careful of even the healthy carbs. So that means that I can't get healthy because I'm vegan and eat potatoes and rice? :P And what about flour? Is it as bad as sugar? I don’t feel that I crave flour the same as sugary/fatty junk food. I don’t feel that I can eat pasta or bread instead of for example candy and pizza with vegan cheese on it.

Or you can heal your eczema with a firm attitude toward it. Facing the issue, reinforcing your boundaries, after all it's your skin, not its ! You just need to decide you don't want it, tell it, and keep this attitude firmly !!! A few minutes a day for a few days, and it will be gone !
