Treatments for Eczema

To help treat Eczema or to just help with dry skin:

Take a tablespoon of cider vinegar and a tablespoon of honey in a glassful of water, three times a day, with meals. You should start to notice a considerable improvement after a week.

Under no circumstances should salt be taken, as this can aggravate the eczema condition considerably.

Some people have also improved their eczema by applying a thin layer of honey, particularly Manuka honey, directly on to the affected area.

However use this cautiously, as for some people this has actually made the condition worse - yet another complexity that eczema sufferers unfortunately have to deal with.

This information is an edited extract from the book 'Honey and its many health benefits' by Margaret Briggs. And is available for purchase from Bookmart Ltd, Blaby Road, Wigston, Leicester, LE18 1SE.
