Eczema…

So I when to see a dermatologist today and that is what I was diagnosed with. The lady checked me out and after talking to me about my history (foods I’ve eaten lately, dry skin history, etc), she wrote it down in big capital letters and underlined it. 🙂

So, I have to avoid citrus, tomatoes, caffeine, sugar, white flour and milk. Need to soak in Dead Sea Salt baths for 15-20 min daily. She suggest to take Flaxseed Oil Capsules (1000 mg) 3 times a day during winter and to take acidophilus capsules once a day during breakfast. She gave me three (!!!) prescriptions: Zyrtec, lac-hydrin cream, and some other ointment. I also have to get some blood work done so there isn’t anything else going on.

Goodness, when I had my gallbladder issues, the list wasn’t this extensive. 😀

I already have the salts, I just need to get the prescriptions filled. All my coworkers are relieved I am not contagious.

  1. That sucks! My SD’s suffer from that and just so you know. You can still have all of the listed, just in moderation. 🙂

    Hope your excema is better soon.
