Eczema is a skin disorder which affects millions worldwide. Those who suffer from eczema can tell you how maddening the itch can be. Many rather endure the pain of having weeping and bleeding skin , than the itch. There are proven solutions and different fast remedies to help you become eczema free forever. Your eczema will not disappear overnight but you will start seeing results in just a few days.

1. Stay away from stress. Yes, find a way to cool down and slow down your life a bit. Stress is another culprit that has been identified to make eczema worse. You might have experienced seeing new eczema on your skin when you are in a stressful period. Learn to do stress relieving exercises and go for counseling.

2. Soaking in colloidal oatmeal bath is another excellent way to relieve the itching. The oatmeal referred here is different from the oatmeal we usually take for our breakfast, rather it is the refined version of the breakfast oatmeal. It is so fine that it acts as a colloid. When it is added to water, it creates a milk-like substance, which gives the water a slimy consistency. When the colloidal oatmeal covers the skin, it actually binds the skin, thus moisturize and protect the skin.

3. Add one teaspoon sandalwood and one teaspoon camphor. Make a paste and apply it on the affected regions. This is helpful in treating eczema.

4. Paste of turmeric powder and neem leaves. Paste of mashed papaya leaves that helps to prevent itching. Can't give you the whole list here but these are some of the best remedy for becoming eczema free forever.

5. Drink chamomile before you sleep. Chamomile is a good itch relieving option if you aren't allergic to chamomile. I would suggest consuming a cup of chamomile tea before bedtime to help with the night time itching. For one longtime sufferer of eczema, this suggestion brought successful relief. For another, it brought about an allergic reaction. Thus, only use chamomile IF you are not allergic to it.

6. Another useful remedy would be making a paste using one tablespoon each of bitter neem leaves and turmeric powder. Apply this paste on the eczema sites regularly.

7. Take a high quality whole food supplement to ensure that you are giving your body the needed nutrients to heal itself, that may be lacking in your diet. A good choice will be sourced from many super foods that are wild-crafted and organic, such as wheatgrass or other grasses, sea veggies and many other ingredients. Avoid supplements with preservatives, fillers and other additives.

8. Find some effective relaxation techniques. There are many ways to achieve relaxation and stress relief. Many classes may be available in your area such as yoga, meditation, Qi Gong and the like. You may choose to listen to CD's that offer relaxing imagery or just peaceful music. Get ample amounts of restful sleep -- this is when our body does most of its healing. Releasing stresses in our lives will promote self-healing.
