anything to soothe eczema before?

Hi , have a friend visiting me later today-
She has had bad eczema her entire life
and in last few weeks it is out of control
scratching herself .

She is now willing to go see a homeopath
or an acupuncturist bc she cannot take
cortisone any longer. so this is a big step
for her. Need temporary soothing
skin ideas. thanks.

This is just a forum. Assume posts are not from medical professionals.
It isn't really safe to prescribe an acute for chronic eczema. It will almost certainly suppres the condition, if it doesn't aggravate it. Either way she will end up worse off than before.

Better to wait for someone to do it properly.

In the meantime things like Oatmeal baths or Chamomille tea washes can be helpful (if not done for too long).

Thanks- yes I did not mean doing acute-
I meant something like the oatmeal
or the chamomille tea wash-
which both I never heard of-

That is what I meant- something to just
soothe it till she goes to someone
hopefully early next week.

Make the tea strong, but let it cool before gently washing the skin with it. Let the tea dry on the skin. It works when the skin is angry and red and painful.

Oatmeal is better when the itching is more prominent, but I don't see why you couldn't do both.

thanks very much, I just wanted to be
sure that any stuff put on skin was not
going to suppress and make it worse.

Much appreciated. Simone
