Is it Eczema? or I don't know what the F*&% is wrong with you!

Dry, cracked, scaly, red, intense itching, painful lesions, change in color, rashes, fluid-filled blisters, infection, dry acne, wrinkles and thickened skin...  Does this sound like anything you experience? You are not alone, there are over 3 million cases of eczema per year.

Eczema causing irritants and triggers:
  • Washing repeatedly and damaging the protective skin barrier (acid mantle - oil on the skin)
  • Alkaline cosmetics (stripping chemicals such as glycolic, salicylic acids, bar soaps
  • Fragrances and chemicals in cosmetics
  • Hard water ( high PH water can damage the skin barrier)
  • Animal Dander
  • Dust Mites
  • Food allergies
  • Hair dyes
  • Detergents, clothing fabrics
  • Pollens and Molds
According to Medical News Today, there is no cure for eczema. Treatment for the eczema condition aims to heal the affected skin and prevent flare-ups of symptoms. Doctors will suggest a plan of treatment based on an individual's age, symptoms, and the current state of health.  But has anyone considered that maybe it's not eczema and eczema does not even exist?  Eczema is defined as "A group of skin conditions characterized by red, itchy rashes. The exact reason for the cause of eczema is not known, but it is associated with the overactive response of the body's immune system." ...... Which is another way of saying "I don't know what the F*&%$ is wrong with you!"  I think doctors just simply do not have the time or the resources to find the root of the "eczema" problem and because there is no cure, they sure do make a lot of money on all those prescriptions and doctor visits.  Eczema to me is almost like having cancer.... finding the cure would be too easy.

What kind of money can a doctor and pharmaceutical company make off this so-called eczema condition?  Well, a typical flare-up of eczema can cost thousands of dollars per visit.  Typically, the treatment would include an antibiotic topical or oral, a steroid dose pack and some topical steroids and non-steroidal topical creams such as desonide cream. These prescriptions usually only last 2 weeks so continued "experiment" visits for a lifelong time would follow.  How do steroids work? They induce phospholipase A2 inhibitory proteins (lipocortins) which control the biosynthesis of inflammation mediators. They suppress the immune response using anti-inflammatories that the skin will produce when it is having a reaction to irritants on the skin, but they only work for 2 weeks at a time, or sometimes they do not work at all!

After years of spending time, money, and compromising my skin on all these eczema experiments, I did my own research and figured out exactly what causes eczema.  Your skin is a direct reflection of your health.  Your skin will let you know when something is not right...  itching, burning, scratching.....  Your skin is telling you something! Listen to the signs and you can figure it out too. And tell your doctor. It is NOT fine.  You deserve a diagnosis not just a fancy word like eczema for an itch.  There is a reason that the condition is there. Find it!  It is not fine.

Your skin's main function is to keep things out.  A proper PH balance is how the skin maintains its' barrier which is known as the acid mantle.  The proper PH of the skin is responsible for keeping lipids and moisture in while keeping germs, pollution, toxins, and bacteria out. When you strip the skin’s barrier of its oils, the skin's ability to fight the bad bacteria is compromised.   And yes, your skin is supposed to have oil on it. That is the first line of defense.  Without oil, which holds millions of good bacteria, you will have eczema.

When Skin’s PH is compromised, your skin will be dry, sensitive, burning, itching, rash prone, inflamed, scarring, dry lines, and wrinkles.  If bacteria begin to invade the skin, you will develop pimples, wounds, secondary infections and ultimately contact dermatitis and atopic dermatitis and allergic reactions... eczema. Your skin has a lipid moisture barrier that is on the surface for a reason, it contains good bacteria that keep the bad bacteria in check.  Disrupting that balance of good and bad bacteria can cause the sensitive/ eczema.  Overuse of cosmetics is a huge contributing factor to stripping the mantle of skin especially if you are combining different brands.  It is best to stay with one brand since the products are meant to go together.  One of the best inventions is Bio-hybrid technology found in J.Nicole Skincare. Its so easy, even DJ Khaled can do it. The skin care routine is only 2 steps!

Our skin contains helpful bacteria that live on our skin. This helpful microflora bacteria’s role is to keep the bad bacteria out; we need them to be healthy and vibrant because skin bacteria help determine our skin’s immune response, vulnerability to allergies, wound healing, and susceptibility to certain skin diseases. Removing that acid balanced PH and  (sebum oil acid mantle) from the epidermis will allow bad bacteria to compromise and colonize the skin.  In order to correct this, corticosteroids can be used. (Desonide Cream) or methylprednisolone oral, in combination sometimes with an antibiotic to get rid of the bad bacteria and a topical moisturizer to stabilize the acid mantle. (emu oil is the best, or vegan you can use coconut oil, olive oil,)  Another Holistic healing recipe would be 

    1. Soak in Epson salt 10 min for reverse osmosis if there are inflammation and infection
    2. Soak in vinegar for 10 min for treatment of bacteria or fungal infections caused by invasion from broken skin
    3. Wash skin with Kaolin Clay (moon dust) (the main ingredient of Soli Bar soap and J.Nicole moon soap) and apply witch hazel 
    4. Treat with Azelaic acid this reduces swelling, inflammatory lesions and erythema in patients and kills bacteria that infect skin pores. It also decreases the production of keratin, which is a natural substance that promotes the growth of acne bacteria. It can be used both for integral skin lightening to obtain a more radiant complexion, but also to fight “old-age spots”. One of the major advantages of using azelaic acid for skin lightening is the fact that it does not interfere with any of the bodily processes major advantage of azelaic acid is that it lacks the side effects of the pharmaceutical ingredients.
    5. Treat with skin with emu oil, vitamin E oil, grape seed oil. OIL OIL OIL is good for the skin!
    6. Repair the skin barriers with Shae butter or arnica lotion or J.Nicole Overdose Serum
