For the last 5+ years, my hands are horrible once the heat gets turned on. I get huge cracks in my fingers and knuckles. I have not seen a dermatologist for a DX. This cream is the only thing that has helped lately.

My daughters hands are worst then mine, hers are raw from so much hand washing. She uses it too. She said her doctor diagnosed eczema on her hands and body.

I've also used a vitamin B creme from Rite Aid that worked in the beginning. I'll also use bag balm on my hands some nights. My hub uses the bag balm which helps his cracked hands.

The cream we use isn't an eczema cream, it's Gold Bond Ultimate healing with aloe. It's pretty expensive, well for me anyway. I think close to $8 for a tube. I went to Walmart, saw it, put it in my cart then and tried it. If my hands felt decent by the time I was done I was going to buy it, if not, put it back. I bought it.

For anyone that hasn't tried it, it's worth a try. They have others that are more expensive but this one works for us. I believe their actual eczema cream was a smaller tube and a lot more expensive. Pretty sure that one was in a paper package. I had bought it too but never used it, so I took it back.

There are different types of eczema (mine is genetic, according to dermatologists I've seen during my entire life). If yours is due to foods, it's probably not like the other types.

Atopic dermatitis the most common form of eczema. It usually starts in childhood, and often gets milder or goes away by adulthood. Atopic dermatitis is part of what doctors call the atopic triad. “Triad” means three. The other two diseases in the triad are asthma and hay fever. Many people with atopic dermatitis have all three conditions.

I see other people using lotions that don't have foil seals in the Walmart I go to; I don't watch whether they buy them or not. I'm surprised this Gold Bond doesn't have a foil seal like a lot of lotions do have. Due to how expensive it is, you'd think they would have one. I grabbed the 1st one from the shelf. It's possible someone else had tried the one I bought too.

I didn't reshelve it. I bought it. It was the only lotion I've ever tried before I bought it.

This is purely anecdotal, but when I began taking daily cod liver oil caps, I stopped getting eczema on my legs during the colder months.

Eating raw avocados help a lot with eczema. It provides natural oils that work from the inside.
Google it. Amazing stuff.

Interesting.

"We have had hundreds of reports from eczema sufferers who say avocado worsens their eczema.

While avocado is a healthy addition to your diet when you don't have eczema, avocado is one of the richest sources of amines and itch-promoting salicylates. "
