seriously nothing seems to be working ever. i think im beyond help
i am doing this food elimination thing since food allergens/intolerance and leaky gut etc is a common cause of eczema. and i know lots of peoples' symtoms improved or disappeared by eliminating gluten. dairy, Sugar
or anything else
i am on the Paleo diet. i gave up all grains dairy nightshades nuts legumes, all the offending food, but i STILL have eczema in many parts parts of my body. some facial eczema from winter went away but that it. no further improvement. ive been on this diet for months, almost 4 months now. ive done strict diets over the years none worked. did 'liver flushes" but found out theyre a fraud (those so called "stones" are just olive oil. i mean seriously no stone the size of an inch
or more would painlesly pass my tiny gallbladder)
i did candida diet before for a while, coconut oil fast (passed out from that too). did parasite
cleanse, oil pulling (doubt its validity). i cant remember all the things ive done over the years. onset was sudden in my early teens and just never ever truly got better after that
sometimes the rashes will disappear in one spot but still comes back somewhere else eventually. sunlight always improves my skin but UV light really is just a type of immune supresant not a cure, always comes back in winter. for some reason i itch the most at night.
also i took probiotics but they dont really help much, like they wont fix a gut imbalance, all are only only transient too
are some people just beyond help? diet is supposed to be a major cause but its making no difference for me. when i cheated with offending foods, even a grain/dairy gluten (i wont return to this kind of diet again though) i dont get flare ups or major reactions from that. i do have bad digestion overall, likely have leaky gut b/c my small intestine is bad, and have acid reflux. but still not getting better no matter what diet or cleanse i do. not even fasting works
what is wrong with me? is eczema hereditary b/c my dad used to have skin diseases in youth (like boils) and is prone to rashes (im pissed by this!). although he doesnt have chronic eczema. nobody in my family does. even a cousin who had some eczema overcame it for good and her digestion and colon is still really messed up! i am the only chronic incurable case it seems
whats wrong? please someone give insight! im mean why would someone go through life with normal skin, but then all of a sudden get an onset of chronic incurable eczema? im obviously unhealthy but why? i didnt abuse my body as a kid so why???
