Hi, I’ve only recently been ‘diagnosed’ with eczema but for years I’ve already been cycled through emollients and steroid creams/ointments which appear to have no effect. I was wondering whether anybody has experience with using goat’s milk to help eczema? I’ve seen reviews of both using goat milk soap and drinking goat milk (kefir, which I’ve just started) supposedly helping skin but I’d like to know if anyone has experienced this.
Since I've gotten pregnant my treatment has just gotten horrific.

Are there any women on here who have severe eczema and are going through either peri-menopause or menopause. The skin on the face and body are dry and hot but using a moisturizer only helps a bit? I'm seeing my doctor tomorrow to discuss further treatments because I have people who constantly ask what happened to my face and I'm starting to feel embarrassed about going out in public. I just need to know if others who have gone through this have had the eczema clear up after menopause was… read more
