I don't have atopic dermatitis, but have had other skin issues that first made their appearance in childhood, as well as allergy issues, so, I have always been interested in health information and treatment, both allopathic and non-allopathic. Some of these allergic/inflammatory issues can be very, very stubborn. The following link shares good news on a possible atopic dermatitis chinese herbal treatment from a prospective, randomized, double blind, placebo controlled trial involving patients with severe, intractable, atopic dermatitis.
For those who have allergy/skin issues, you might find the source worth following. He twitters as well.
And here's a nice education link about atopic dermatitis and all its types..
Yes, I have dry skin on my legs, nothing serious but anoying. Its even worst now I think.
Skin disease is so f*king anoying, I healed all of my problems except from it (and I had lots of them) and I tried like 100 different stuff and nothing works... The difference goes from annoying to little less annoying.
One thing that I am certain off is that sea climate helps. Adriatic sea vacation always attenuates all my problems. My dermatologist says that people from all over the world come to it as it is known to help skin disease. The worst thing I had is when I skipped my regular yearly vacation.
I've had eczema almost my entire life, and I've tried everything on the planet to get rid of it. Sometimes it will heal for a few weeks, but returns again. I've been prescribed numerous treatments, including steroid creams, goats milk (had to drink it when I was a kid...it was awful) apple cider vinegar, and special salts. NOTHING has worked, and its extremely frustrating. I tried cutting out nightshades too, and it didn't work. Currently I'm seeing if taking a magnesium supplement will help at all.
