Eczema - Diet?I have been suffering from ezcema on my fingers all 10 of them for over about 2 years.
I am taking homeopathy medicene which i got it from India.
However the 1st 6 months of it didn't help as i was eating food that was acting in the opposite direction.
My case of ezcema is skin ruptures with cuts and buring sensation
I have realized the following food are bad and makes ezcema worse.
Eggs, Wheat flour (products), Dairy products (milk, cheese, buttermilk, yogurt),
Alcohol (Red wine, beer)
milk products (chocolate, etc)
What i eat is:
Green salad : carrot shredded, persian cucumbers, lettuce, chopped pitted dates, tomatoes, and at times chopped green chillies (thai).
regular rice and lentils
soy based burger patties
plain flour based products..
I also take regularly: fish oil capsules, and neem (powdered) capsules every day since March.
Is there any food that would help my condition..
2 days ago i had one egg omelet, and the result shows in 1 day, and my fingers have numerous cuts and it burns..

In my LONG experience with eczema and diet it just seems to me that your diet is still quite acidic. Diet should be more Alkalinizing about 80-20% ratio.
Tomatoes and and soy based products are well known to aggravate eczema. Feremted soy products like Tamari sauce and Miso for example are fine. Rice is also acidic and should be reduced. Are your fruits and vegetables organic? If not buy Organic where possible.
Drink a LOT of water and take a lot of fruits.
Stop eating Chillis all together as this will just heat up your body and aggravate eczema a lot. I was a chilli addict and I know it may be hard to give up but you will see benefits!
Avocado is good for the skin as it contains EFA's
I hope this will help you
