Persistent Eczema

Commented on November 02, 2013

I have had persistent eczema on my thighs for nearly all of my life. It seems to come and go in waves. Surprisingly, it does not induce horrible itchiness, as some other people have described. I have been eating Paleo for the last two years and autoimmune Paleo (no nightshades, eggs) for the last two months with no improvement. I consume very little nuts and seeds, and I have a high intake of fruits, vegetables, and grass fed buffalo, beef, and wild fish. I am a celiac. I live in a climate with very low humidity. Recently, I have discovered that eczema potentially has a strong relation to gut health. I have started supplementing probiotics, l-glutamine, and fish oil in hopes to reduce inflammation and heal the intestinal barrier. I would rather not consult a dermatologist who will likely prescribe nasty steroid creams. At this point, I am not sure of what else to do. Any tips? Thanks.

It's great! I take 5 to 10000 iu daily and get plenty of sunshine.

How's your D3 blood level? My eczema disappeared completely once I got my level up. Optimal for those with autoimmune is 60-80 ng/ml.
