current emotions.

Sometimes it’s all too much!
But we can do it!
I haven’t had a huge flare up in a little while but grad school is coming to an end and I’m about to make my thesis film. I am trying really hard to keep the stress at a min!

Stood in the freezer section in Walmart for too long and now I can’t bend my bloody arms because elbows

The more you think about it eczema doesn’t even sound like a real thing it just sounds like excuses to be lazy.

"I’m allergic to sweat I can’t work out"

"I can’t eat broccoli it upsets my skin"

"I can’t move"

It’s funny in a sad way

I feel this way, that people think my eczema is an excuse to not get as much work done as everyone else :(. This is a huge obstacle that kept me back from treating myself kindly and acknowledging that I have a valid reason.

I found the pictures of how my eczema used to be!

How I got rid of my eczema flare ups completely in just over a month:

  • Ultimate detox/prevention by eating raw vegan food [benefits]
  • Far Infra-Red Sauna which makes you sweat 15-20% toxins [info]
  • (you can get portable ones for around £150)
  • Minimal/controlled sunbed use / getting enough sunlight - for vitamin D - plus it destroys eczema [why?]
  • Mometasone Furoate/Elocon ointment - to break the itch/scratch cycle
  • Cutting down on products that contain SLS (sodium laureth/lauryl sulphate), anything with “paraben" within the word and many other chemicals
  • Zinc! Lots of zinc!


How I’ve kept it away:

  • Since July 2012, for about a year I slowly introduced more fruit, veg, wholefoods etc into my diet
  • In July 2013 I cut out all animal products [101 reasons]
  • Trying to wear non-itchy clothes.
  • Using organic bath products, hair products, make up and detergents as much as possible
  • When I want to shave, I use coconut oil instead of shaving gel, and it works A LOT better!
  • Oh and er… stress reduction in any way you enjoy :)
  • For the RARE, RARE times I do get flare ups I just apply a bit of mometasone furoate and it instantly goes away.

This is important with eczema. Often your skin is actually on your side and the reason it flares up is to tell you to slow down, relax, please eat well, sleep a lot, drink a lot of water and lower your stress. It’s tell you, you need to treat yourself better.
