In the past year I have started to develop pretty gnarly eczema on my hands and face. These flare ups (especially the ones on my face) come out of nowhere and can totally alter my day-to-day life. I have seen multiple dermatologists who always prescribe topical ointments that are filled with chemicals/toxins and have not great side effects. I’ve also been put on oral steroids like prednisone for 6 weeks at a time which resulted in weight gain and left me feeling like I had no control over my own body.
I decided to pivot from harsh lotions and pills and focus more on trying anti inflammatory dieting in hopes of cleansing my body from the inside out. Unfortunately this hasn’t been super effective (yet!?) but I still have hope that there are cleaner supplements/wellness plans that have worked for other women struggling with similar skin conditions.
My derms have scoffed at me when I’ve asked about the correlation between food triggers and eczema, but I swear this must be a thing! Anyone else attempting to cure skin conditions through their diet, let a girl know!!
