The above photo was taken on 19 Oct 2020, when she was under control with steroid and antihistamine.
This client was very happy to recover without any drugs.
History: Eczema started in Feb 2018 (she stayed in Brunei). Not sure what the cause was, she suspected the rice wine she made for Chinese New Year was the trigger. She was also under a lot of stress then. Usually for flareups, you need all factors coming together: genetic, stress, environmental pollution, wrong food, bad habits. Patches appeared on her arms first, then legs, then on her entire back, hips and neck. Doctor gave her steroid cream and antihistamine. It went away for a while, but came back on and off.
April 2020, it spread to the whole body. More steroid cream and medication had it under control.
She came to Singapore in July 2020.
Aug 2020, her eczema flared up again. This time, she felt it went haywire. Even with steroid and antihistamine, her wrists, arms, back and area around the knees started to have very itchy spots.
Oct 2020, she searched online and found Body Inc.
We put her on #2OneResetDetoxProgram on 19 Oct 2020.
After 5 days of detox, she got some flareup up around underarm and neck (areas which very rarely flared up), waistline and front of knee. We advised her to rest and allow her own immune system and skin to heal by itself. Flareup went off and skin started to recover with a clean diet and natural remedies, totally without steroid cream or oral medication.
By 4 Nov 2020, her skin was quite ok (see photo below) with 70-80% recovery. Itch was almost zero.
Skin on the neck was still dry, underarm bra area sometimes itched a little at night but it didn't affect her sleep. Now she could sleep well through the night. Also, no more pain before menses. For many years, she had very bad cramps one week before menses.
Now that she could wear short sleeve, she was very happy and thankful to Body Inc. team.
Unlike childhood eczema which usually involves a longer period of flareups because immune system is much weakened; more prescriptive drugs were taken over the years making it harder to detox; complications with genetic factors, this kind of eczema is easier to settle.
A clean diet, some immune support with supplements may see good results.
