It was so dark that i couldn’t see, or maybe refuse to see. I thought God has left me, i thought God has probably abandoned me or just gone leaving me like this. But no, i was wrong. This flare up has taught me a lot of things i forgot. Faith, Love and Hope.
[ENG] Flashback to my days battling with Eczema, all i could say today is how grateful i am to be able to do all the little things i couldn’t do back then. Simplest things like taking a shower, pulling up my blanket without it scratches my skin, eat happily and even feel the sweat. My eczema experience taught me to highly appreciate simple things in life and make me realize that all of those simple things may not be free and should be grateful for.
[ENG] Following an elimination diet could be so confusing sometimes. Looking for a “proper” foods to eat is quite a challenge. So, these are some key points to make things easier.

[ENG] Our body seems to have 3 metabolic periods which cycle every 24 hours. Eating in compliance with these three metabolic periods will afford more efficient digestion, assimilation, cleansing and maintenance of the cells and therefore proper healing can occur.

[ENG] “For me itching has been the worst symptoms in my recovery from TSW. It has brought me to my knees crying, praying and begging it to stop. The itching was so bad that at one point i would scratch it until it bleeds. I remember i was begging to God to make it stop or at least better so i didn’t have to see my hands breaking my skin that i really wanted it to heal.
There were times when i itched 24 hours a day. I blamed everything, the clothes i was wearing, the weather, the things i’ve eaten, ect. But God is so good, He helped me decreasing the itch by the time i prayed and let me learn some safer way to deal with the itch.”
[ENG] RSS is characterized by red, itchy, burning skin that can appear after ceasing topical steroid treatments, or even between treatments. In RSS, topical steroids are effective for a period of time to treat the skin condition. As time passes, however, applying topical steroids results in less and less clearing. The original problem escalates as it spreads to other areas of the body. In the case of eczema, this “progression” is often mistaken for worsening eczema.
