I was 10 years old when I developed Eczema on my feet. I was up all night crying and scratching much to my mother’s chagrin. I had it soo bad that I was allowed to wear open toed shoes to Catholic School (with a doctor’s note of course). The rebel and fashionista I was, I of course wore platform open toed shoes; it was after all 1973. The nuns just loved me.
My mother took me to my newborn brother’s pediatrician who only chastise me for keeping my mom up all night and never gave me anything to help with the itching. He told me to “just stop scratching and go to sleep and stop keeping my mom up all night”. I will never forget this because anyone that has ever had eczema knows that you want nothing more than to “just stop scratching and get a good night’s sleep”. It was not until a year later that a family relative recommended to my mom and dad to take me to a dermatologist. It was there that he prescribed “Valisone” the ointment. In two weeks the eczema cleared and my mom and I were able to sleep again.
Valisone is no longer available, which I am shocked about because it worked. The good news is that my patent pending “Hand Scrub” formula is helping people get relief from eczema. It exfoliates and moisturizes at the same time without causing more pain to the area.
If you have eczema you should give it a try.
