A Miracle.

I really have to apologize for the poor quality of these photos, but in the absence of a working camera my husband's ipad was the best I could do.  Still, you get the idea?  These were taken this morning. Sam's skin looks incredible. Truly this is the best it has looked ever, in his entire life. This is without aid of any medication.  No steroids, wet wraps, supplements or creams whatsoever.



  Sammy says: "Thank you SolveEczema.org.!!"

By the way, I do not gain anything from linking to the solve eczema website in every post but I shall continue to link to it because if any parent looking for eczema help stumbles upon this blog via google search, I want them to easily be able to find this miracle-working website that has changed our lives. I would be so happy if someone else found the answer to their child's eczema through Sam's blog! I really believe as the author of the website does that this particular cause of eczema accounts for up to 60% of eczema cases. I see children all over the internet who look just like Sam did, who's stories sound just like his, and I just want to reach through my computer screen and shake their parents and say "TRY THIS!"  Most will pass by this solution though because it is so involved and it requires work and time and problem solving, while western medicine has trained us to look for quick, easy, overnight solutions. It took 5 weeks of hard work before seeing small improvements and nearly 8 weeks before seeing big ones. Now at 10 weeks, we are seeing and maintaining clear, healthy, baby soft skin and enjoying the fruit of our labor. Stick with it!



PS - Below you can see what his skin looked like at its worst, 2 1/2 months ago. Red, itchy, burning skin!

  2. Amazing! Thank you for sharing your family's story. I am so happy for all of you, especially Sam! The smile on his face speaks volumes! You are to be commended for having the patience and stamina to go through all the work required instead of just using the quick fix that most people are looking for. He looks absolutely beautiful!

  3. I've just got to this most recent post (see my comment on May 29th post) and am so pleased to see how much better your son looks. You really have put so much work in, and I have really valued your honesty at how confusing and frustrating the whole process has been - it's how I feel on a daily basis, and it's even worse for Chloe! I am now committed to keeping going with eliminating detergents from the home on a longer term basis. I would love to get un update from you - any other insights would really help keep me going. What do you currently use to wash clothes and clean the house - are you sticking with Dr Bronner? I live in the UK and this is one soap I can get, but I'm not sure about Cal Ben.

    1. Hi Liza! So kinds of you to comment. I'm sorry you have been dealing with skin issues for so long with your daughter, I can truly relate to how heartbreaking it is to see your little one have to be so uncomfortable in her skin. I will be posting an update in the next day or so on how things are going and will list all the products we are using as well. Take care!

  4. This is incredible. I'm new to your blog and I just found solveeczema.org TODAY and I wonder why I didn't find them two years ago when my daughter's eczema started. I am at the end of my rope AGAIN after two years of talking with unhelpful doctors and dermatologists and trying experiments at home to help her skin. I can't stand seeing her pull up her pants and cry and scratch until she bleeds again. We believe some of it may be diet related, but I had no idea about the difference between detergents and soaps until now. We'll be trying to make the switch and I'll see if it works for us. Thank you for sharing your son's story!

    1. Nicole, good to hear from you. I was able to click on your name and find your blog and see pics of your sweet little girl's eczema from december. I would love to chat more with you. I definitely know what its like to be fed up with doctor's limited knowledge on treating this condition! there is a great support group of parents who are all using the solve eczema approach ..if you are interested in joining us just google 'solve eczema user's forum'. It is free but we do have members register for privacy sake. We'd love to have you and I'm sure you'd find some realy helpful info if you are interested at all in the solve eczema method. (I highly recommend it, obviously! ) :)

  5. The red itchy burning photo looks like classic steroid rebound rash. The improvements now he is drug free are staggering! Would you consider posting your photos on the patients section of ITSAN.org

  6. Louise, Thanks but no, my son's eczema was not steroid rebound rash but detergent reactive eczema coupled with yeast infection. We were able to get rid of it quickly and painlessly by treating the infection and removing as much detergent as possible from his environment. I have additional thoughts about RSS that I will address in a future post.

  7. I'm a big fan of the solve eczema website! I hope more parents can find it. Hopefully they will see your sons improvement photos and consider going detergent free. I can see it has really made a difference for Sammy. What a charmer!

  8. I just found her site last week and implemented it beginning on Friday for my children who have pretty severe eczema. We've seen miracles in a very short period of time! Your blog was the initial one I found, so THANK YOU!!!! From the bottom of my heart! Here's my blog post about the improvement we've already seen: http://chelseablogs.com/2013/04/29/the-eczema-tale-never-give-up/

    1. Chelsea, thank you so much for leaving a comment and sharing your blog post!! I loved seeing the improvement in your two beautiful kids (and browsing the rest of your fun, creative, and well-written blog as well)! It makes me so so happy to know that Sam's story is helping others find their own solutions. I subscribed to your blog and will be looking forward to future updates. God bless!

  9. Hi this is such a great blog. Really good advice! I am a 25 year old male and have been struggling with eczema all my life. Although for a lot of that time I did have it under control. Recently though, as in the past two years, it has been flaring up really badly so I have decided to take some measures to changes that. I have begun the body ecology diet and really looking after my digestive system with ACV and Probiotics. Also you should think about the use of sauerkraut as it is apparently great for our digestive system but maybe that is something for the future as perhaps you son won't be able to handle that at his young age?? Anyway thanks again. Also what products do you use. Body wash and moisturiser?
