Common Questions and Answers about Eczema treatment vitamin e oil


Avatar f tn What is the best treatment for vaginal Eczema. I have this for years now, it comes and goes. I use Calendula gel when I have symptoms, it seems to help but not completely. Is there something that I can use that is more effective. It is very uncomfortable. Burning sensation, etc. I had a biopsy done a few years ago and results came back (SPONGIOTIC DERMATITIS) which I been told is like ECZEMA. Can you please help or have any comments regarding this condition.
Avatar n tn Has anyone used 1 Flax seed oil 2 Evining primose oil 3 Borage oil 4 Black currant oil to try to prevent breakouts? I am a 42 year old male and just diagnosed with eczema, although the dermatologist didn't actually test anything. My skin turns red and is somewhat uncomfortable. I wanted to get tested for chemical and food allergies, but he said that they don't cause eczema.
Avatar n tn I've been starting to take a Multivitamin and Also Vitamin E along with Fish Oil to help my skin out. It seems to help but is just a temporary fix. I take Claritin for my sinus allergies which started going crazy due to the climate change from central florida. I did some extra research and found out that in recent studies that this sort of Eczema could be caused from a sensitivity to dietary Nickel. Unfortunately, Nickel seems to be in all sorts of foods.
3093770 tn?1389742726 I've had a number of bouts with eczema over the years, with my scalp being frequently affected. My dermatologist once told me I had the worst case she had ever seen! Her Rx for me was fluocinonide topical solution, 0.05%. I was instructed to wash my hair every day with a mild hypoallergenic shampoo and only slightly warm water, then apply a little bit of solution carefully, so as to treat all affected areas of the scalp without wasting it on the hair. This method works well for me.
Avatar n tn 2 yr old caucasian female with extensive body rash that has slowly, progressively worsened over the past year. Pediatrician diagnosed as eczema, and prescribed pediatric eczema cream. Cream had no effect, no over-the-counter creams have offered much relief. Rash began on trunk area, has spread to arms and legs. Neck, face, head area not affected. Red, splotchy, slightly raised, eventually covering entire trunk so the skin feels coarse, rough like sandpaper.
Avatar n tn I have been doing a lot of research and have found that vitamin E oil works great for the itching but as of yet not found anything that makes the sores heal or the outbreaks stop for any amount of time even a short break so that the older ones can heal. We only know that this is a life time problem they haven't found a cure as of yet.
Avatar m tn Ensuring that your diet is rich with these well-known free-radical scavengers can help support the body’s defences against the daily chemical onslaught. Vitamin C strengthens the skin; vitamin E improves skin healing; and vitamin A helps to regulate the rapid turnover of skin cells seen in eczema. The trace mineral selenium plays a crucial role in the glutathione-peroxidase system (the body’s natural antioxidant process) and is effective for detoxing heavy metals.
Avatar n tn Once it stops etching, I take out my feet and dry those with a towel, without rubbing. 2- Soon after I apply some oil (may be brassica oil, olive oil or whatever natural oil i can get) to it... As soon as I feel my skin drying, I apply oil again. Usually 4 to 5 times in 4 to5 hours. This not only stops etching for 4 to 5 hours, but gradually reduces the intensity of inflamation as well. I repeat this after every 5 to 8 hours.
Avatar n tn Anyway, oatmeal bath with olive oil and vitamin E capsules opened up into the bath helps him alot. Then I immediately moisturize with a mixture of vanicream and aquafor; seems to be the only thing that doesn't burn him. I too have become frustrated with the steroid ointments because they do not stop the flare ups from coming back. So now I am going to try eating healthy, natural foods to see if this helps.
Avatar n tn The problem now is 2 1/2 inches wide and just about encircles my entire ankle. I have now tried tea tree oil and and ready to go to the acupuncturist for treatment. My three dermatologists are with Scripps in LaJolla and they keep experimenting with creams. And that is my story and problem, can you advise me where to turn?
211940 tn?1267884866 Plus, he believes it reduces our need for the antioxidant protection of vitamin E. Like Dr. Peat, many experts believe coconut oil may help restore more youthful-looking skin. When coconut oil is absorbed into your skin and connective tissues, it helps to reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles by helping to keep your connective tissues strong and supple, and aids in exfoliating the outer layer of dead skin cells, making your skin smoother.
Avatar f tn Most of the time, skin peels off too. I have tried vitamin e oil, Vaseline, beeswax, blistex, chapstick, and carmex. Nothing seems to work and it usually takes about 3-4 weeks to go away. What is this and how do I treat it?
Avatar m tn After treatment of multiple medications (for fungal, yeast, eczema) each medication clears up the itching and the rash, but I am left with a discoloration and when the treatment ends the rash comes back. I have even tried taking Vitamin E and using Vitamin E oil. My job is primarily sitting at a desk for 9 hours a day so this seems to be in the area where pressure is at.
Avatar m tn I never have any discomfort, discharge and pain urinating. Prior to having this I was tested for STDs and i did not have a thing. Nothing seems to work, vitamin E, coconut oil or psoriasis skin treatment. its making me depressed.
Avatar f tn Other lip problems can be due to lack of Vitamin Bs in your diet and specifically Vitamin B12. You can buy supplements of this vitamin. Your doctor can also take a blood test to check your Vitamin B12 levels. As well as keeping your lips well moisturised with the lotions that SassyLassie mentions, you could also try and apply natural set yogurt to your lips before going to bed.
Avatar f tn I've been using Vitamin E oil and Herpicin Le and that seems to soothe it for a little bit but NOTHING seems to make it clear up at all. I don't know what to do.. Please help?
209591 tn?1267418314 that 900-1600 IU/day of natural vitamin E had a complete or almost complete clearing of lupus rash. When vitamin E doesn't work, researchers found that vitamin B12 shots can help. After six weeks, they all had coomlete clearing of their lesions. I recomment the d-alpha tocopherol vitamin E. If you can find the mixed tocopherol that's even better. But the d-alpha is the "natural" form, dl-alpha is synthetic-don't get it. I think I'm going to up my vit E.
Avatar f tn I have also tried vitamin e oil on my face which works for a few days then stops. I've tried cutting dairy from my diet (I used to suffer eczema as a child and heard dairy can cause flare ups) and this seems to have reduced the dryness slightly, but my cheeks have been bright red in the morning the last couple of days.
Avatar n tn Since last Sunday, I happen to take Vitamin -C 2000mg ,Vitamin - A 8000 IU, Omega3 capsules and Vitamin-E capsules and I noticed these blisters since Monday, and I suspected that it may have cause this allergy or something, and later from Thursday I have stopped popping the supplements, Now, I am at US for a short trip and I am not using any anti fungal powder, because I am not sure if it is fungus or psoriasis or eczema or something else.
1853014 tn?1340042175 I used an alternative to vaseline, called Waxalene, made with soy oil, bees wax, and vitamin E. I also tried not to use my hands as much, but if you have to do the dishes, wear gloves. I think Auqaphor makes a good lotion also, the stores are starting to carry more stuff for cracked finger-tips and feet. Look around for the product that has no fragrance, is recommended by dermatologists, and is for sensitive skin.
Avatar n tn They LOOK red and cracked, but don't feel sore or dry. Somebody recommended vitamin E for this so I recently started taking supplements to make up for the lack of it in my diet and have noticed an improvement there, but not with my knuckles! Also, the problem looks worse when I have put some kind of strain on my fingers (or the skin), e.g when I have been writing, or carrying heavy bags!
1780140 tn?1314596605 go to vitamin store, buy VITAMIN E OIL, keep it in your shirt pocket with plenty of alcohol wipes for your fingers and put it on your lips as needed ; even if that is 300 times a day
Avatar n tn Hub has used a combination of Aveeno, the Gold Bond, and a product I got from Vitacost called alba unpetroleum jelly when the rash was really bad. It contains coconut oil, castor oil,beeswax, vitamin e. It is not as thick as vaseline, and it seemed to do wonders. We also use the new neosporin eczema therapy mositurizer on his arms - really liked it.
1225178 tn?1318984204 I am taking multivitamins along with extra Vit E, D, and fish oil. I have olive oil in the house so I'll try that first. The coconut butter in the tub sounds wonderful... might even put me "in the mood"... something my poor husband has been missing for a while now. Hhhhhmmmmmm... I bet he wouldn't mind helping me out of that slippery tub.
Avatar m tn I currently use Cetaphil moisturiser and a vitamin E oil. Please help me stop it. Can the skin thicken back up?
Avatar n tn When I have not been working however and could not afford it I looked at the ingredients and saw that it was mostly vitamin e. Since then I buy VITAMIN E OIL from the Health Shop for about £5 a bottle (lasts ages) and this has again solved the problem at least almost as well. I just have to remember to take it each day - just a few drops of it or slightly more.
Avatar n tn I began trying various moisturizers to help and found that putting a little bit of vitamin E oil on both my cheeks helped keep my face moist all day. However, then I started to get these little red bumps - they look kinda like pimples but they really itch, and when I scratch them (which I try not to do) clear ooze comes out. I stopped using the vitamin E oil, and I started to apply hydrocortisone cream (Hydrocortisone Valerate Cream USP, 0.2%) at night for about 12 days.
Avatar f tn I take tons of vitamins— iron, b complex, extra b12, lysine, A, D, E, flaxseed oil...but nothing has seemed to make a difference. After five doctors and three dermatologists, I'm at my wit's end. The stress and pain of eating had made me drop 10 pounds in less than a month, and I've had the worse flare of rosacea in my life. What else could this possibly be?
Avatar f tn Hi You may continue moisturizing these patches. Try Vitamin E cream for ready absorption. This may be a fungal infection or a dermatitic skin condition. Using a mild and bland cleanser like Cetaphil or Neutrogena may help prevent further dryness of the skin or irritation. You may apply an antifungal cream over the area just to see if the dry patches respond to the medications.
