I have finally found the one thing that has kicked my eczema in the butt and may have sent it running. My face scrub! I use Burt’s Bees Peach and Willowbark Deep Pore Scrub. Last week I used it on my face and realized my fingers were tingling, so I rubbed what was left on my hands in and it felt soooooo good. As usual, it rinsed off clean, and I put some florasone cream on and went to bed. When I woke up the next day my fingers were less red, itchy, and felt a lot better than they have in a long time.
I figure that it’s because the scrub is meant to deal with sensitive, fragile skin that is irritated. It seems to be making a real difference. I’ve been using it every night for the last few nights and getting positive results every morning. Last night I forgot to do it and it still looks better this morning. It seems to have gotten things cleaned and moisturized enough to let my body get around to healing. I didn’t even use any of the florasone yesterday and it’s doing great. I’m so glad I’ve finally found something that is getting this to go away! I’m tired of the itching and the flaking and all of the mess. I just want my fingers to have healthy skin again.
