Treatment Plan for MILD Eczema                                 
When it comes to Eczema, it makes life a lot easier if you have simple step-by-step instructions on how to manage it properly on a daily basis. Then you can easily incorporate those steps into your daily routine, and know that you'll be on track to managing it without those dreaded flare ups.
Whichever treatment plan and/or diet you decide to adopt, it's very important that you stick to it every day! Because if you don't follow a strict diet and/or daily skincare regime, as soon as you slip-up it will set you back for days (and more often than not, the slip-up wasn't worth the set back).
1. It's important to address your diet first. Eczema is an immune disease, and as 80% of your immunity is in your gut and digestive tract, it makes sense to get your insides healthy, and working for you, so that your body is able to absorb all the nutrients it needs. This will in-turn help your skin to be healthy and have the tools it needs to heal quickly when needed. 'The Eczema Diet' by Karen Fischer is a great book of food tips for people with eczema prone skin.
2. GAPS diet is very beneficial to improve gut health, which may in-turn improve your skin health also. If you just can't face going onto such a strict, time consuming diet, try to incorporate good fats into your diet, like avocado, coconut oil, bone broth and marrow. It's also very important to be taking a good quality probiotic. This will give your insides the strength to fight off bacteria and viruses. Probiotic are an essential part of healing your gut, and once your gut is healed, and strong, you may even start to outgrow your food intolerances.
3. Probiotics. As we spoke about above, you can get good quality, allergy friendly probiotics from your local health food store. Everyone, especially children, should take a course of probiotics at least a few times each year. People with compromised immune systems should take probiotics on a more regular basis.
4. Cod liver oil / Fish oil tablets taken daily are an essential supplement to heal your skin, and keep it healthy long term. People with seafood allergies can alternatively get healthy oils from eating a variety of nuts and seeds.
5. Magnesium Baths are beneficial to both your body and your skin. Magnesium alkalises your body, and is calming for eczema sufferers. This is especially beneficial for teenagers / adults with eczema, as quite often their eczema can be related to stress.
6. Moisturising Cream. Moisturise your skin at least twice daily, all over your body and face. If you have a mild eczema flare up try to moisturise more often. And apply it as soon as you get out of the bath / shower. It will absorb much better if your skin is still a little bit wet.
7. Skin Barrier Cream such as coconut oil. We Love Coconut Oil! Lather on the skin before your child goes swimming to protect the skin from chlorine and the elements. Also, 1 tbsp of coconut oil in the bath water stops the skin from drying out, as it keeps the natural oils in your skin. It's antifungal as well, so helps to remove germs from the skin while your child is bathing. Here are 12 of the most popular uses for coconut oil on children -
8. Wear soft 100% Cotton Clothing where possible. Soft cotton sheets and clean mattresses can also help an eczema sufferer to be more comfortable at night. Dust mite covers are an essential item if the person has dust mite allergies.
9. Use natural cleaning products around the home. When you have eczema your skin is more open and susceptible to absorbing everything in your environment (including toxic chemicals which can be irritating for the skin). Limiting the use of toxic cleaning products around the home can make life a lot easier. Try using essential oils, like clove oil to clean mould. And peppermint oil diluted to clean your kitchen benchtops.
10. Switch from regular washing powder to a natural, hypo-allergenic brand. Alternatively, our Eco Laundry Soap Nuts are very effective at washing most of your clothing with no chemicals, and cost much less than ordinary washing powder
11. Use Eucalyptus Liquid as a fabric softener. You can get a natural Eucalyptus liquid from Woolworths, and it's Austalian Made. 2 tablespoons per load is plenty, and it will help to kill any germs and eliminate smells without leaving all the chemical residue on your clothing like regular fabric softener does.
