    New eczema treatment

    I did a thread on my daughters hands and her skin problems which is putting her job at risk. She has started an apprenticeship and her hands are causing her no ends of problems with skin inflammation and itching and sometimes cracking.
    We've been down every avenue latex free gloves creams, barrier creams and finally strong steroid creams from a specialist. They all seem to slightly ease it but only very very slightly it's still there.

    She keeps her hands dry and clean all day and creams. The specialist said, (and it was the specialist that prescribed the steroid cream ) that it's eczema and more than likely nothing to do with work. It was by a chance I dropped on a health show last night on BBC2 while channel hopping;-

    BBC Two - Trust Me, I'm a Doctor, Series 6, Episode 2 - Could enzymes called endolysins ease eczema symptoms and offer an alternative to antibiotics?

    Cut along tale short the new treatment targets the bad bacteria only that causes the itching and inflammation and leave the good bacteria alone. Up till now it's not been possible to target "Staphyloccocus aureus bacteria" the cause of eczema.

    This endolysin is called Staphefekt this targets the "Staphyloccocus aureus bacteria" bad bacteria and leaves all the good healthy bacteria alone unlike steroid creams which attack the good and bad bacteria.
    Because this is a natural occurring product it does not have to be tested and can be released immediately. On the BBC2 show a woman was on with her child who has suffered with eczema and he has seen a massive improvement since using an on the market product.
    The only warning is "If Staphyloccocus aureus plays no part in your skin condition Gladskin will have no affect".

    Here's the stuff;-
    Reduce itching and redness with Gladskin Eczema

    You really have to watch the show on catch up as the test were carried out in Holland. Well I've took a chance and ordered some and I will post up pictures of before and after shots and if there's any improvement over the next couple of months.

    Oh and my wife has suffered with Rosacea for years. When it kicks off her face cheek becomes red with hives. I've also purchased some Gladskin Rosacea cream for her. Dear do I know but if it works then it's money well spent.

    @deej01 did your doctor do this (or arrange it) on the NHS? Thought some health boards stopped this? I'm asking 'cos I think I've developed an allergy but can't pin down the cause, kept food diary etc.
    @silverdale I'm interested in your daughter & missus' progress mate, let us know. Good luck to them both.

    Cheers HH.

    @ silverdale

    This is a solution for eczema but will only work on hands and feet. It will sound sill but it genuinely works.

    Do this of a night, have a hot bath and soak the effected areas, gently dry and cover liberally with what ever cream the doctor has prescribed.

    Now comes the different bit and she will need help doing it, put a plastic bag over the hand and seal it by sellotaping it up (around the top of the bag, not onto the skin) leave the bag on over night.

    The effect of this is that the hands sweat the pours open and the cream is absolved all night into the skin.

    The result of this is 2 fold 1st the hands will bloody stink the next morning, 2nd it the eczema will be 100 times better.

    I have been doing this my self for about 40 years so know that it works

    know one knows what starts eczema, even to this day it baffles the experts thats until they have finally targeted a one particular bacteria at the cause to quote "some" peoples eczema problems.
    This new treatment also help burn wounds and diabetic wounds against infection and work is been carried out against the dreaded superbug in our hospitals.

    All's I can say is give it a watch. It's not a witch doctor remedy made up by some company it's a scientific break through. These are not just presenters but doctors looking at ilness's and things that we can than can help or even cure certain health problems.
    playback from 36:00 minutes in from here and it will be explained better than I can;-
    BBC iPlayer - Trust Me, I'm a Doctor - Series 6: Episode 2

    I will do I am going to take pictures when here hands are at their worse then each day morning and night and keep a log so we will know if it's actually making any improvement to her hands.
    It's her job at stake or I should say her future career. Her bosses are monitoring her and have warned her if it gets bad they will have to release her. She working long hours and is a rare teenager in todays day and age as she is learning and getting paid.

    What does she do?

    Re: New eczema treatment

    Apprentice hairdresser, we've tried everything. She rarely touches anything that's chemical based and her hands are rarely wet. We've had every barrier cream on the market and latex free gloves, marigolds, steroid cream etc... so it's worth a go.

    I read what you said about the bags and cream but I can't imagine she'd put up with that. I think that's a little bit extreme for her plus she can't put her phone down for more than 10 seconds.

    i had to pay, first time went to a so called eczema expert for uk. he charged 300 for an appoinment and done the pin prick test, and said i had no allergies apart from pollen which i already knew about. he just gave me another steriod cream that didn't fix cause. symptoms got worse

    second time i went to a chinese dr as said before he gave me pills and i done accupuncture. he took a few strands off my hair and sent them off for an allergy test. it cost about 100 for the test, different prices for amount of things you want to check. results came back with a few allergies namely dairy and shellfish, while other specialist dr said i was fine with them. anyway changed milk for almond milk kept on pills for a year no skin really good no eczema for 2 years. only get if i eat something wrong few times but nothing major

    Re: New eczema treatment


    I suppose what works for one might not work for others but I do beleive it all stems down to something we eat or put on ourselves (eat, washing powder, soap deodorant, perfumes creams etc....)

    But eczema is like meningitis, we all harbour it it's just the unlucky ones who get the full blown abit like herpes which 2 in every carry.

    From what I saw in the TV it makes alot of sense. I told my m8 who isn't the brightest but he has always has a way of saying things.
    I said "It's trying to get rid of the bad bacteria and leave the rest in place" his reply, "Ah right I get ya, it's like having a grey pube, you don't shave your nuts just get rid of the one" I just slowly nodded
