I have been suffering from dishydrotic eczema for 9 years now with flare-ups aggravated by hormones. Being a nurse, I thought it was that foam causing the "rash" on my hand, but figured out it was dishydrotic eczema after being a stay-at-home mom for years. During my 5th pregnancy, I was the most inflamed I had ever been on my hand, chest, and back. 4 months postpartum, it got significantly worse. So much so, I ventured to a dermatologist for the first time in my life. She prescribed cloderm, topicort, and a $400+ cream called eucrisa. My hand looks great for a couple days, then it came back with an awful vengeance and would not subside, despite my topical prescription efforts. So after realizing I wasted a boat-load of money on prescriptions, I decided to give Eczema Honey a try.
**My 1 and only drawback with Eczema Honey is the phenoxyethanol they put in their products which is a notorious endocrine-disrupting chemical and why I refused to use it when I first stumbled across this brand. Hopefully they eliminate that harmful preservative after reading my review. 😁**
Anyway, I ordered the eczema honey, hand lotion, and cotton gloves. I am both shocked and pleased to report my knuckles haven't broken open, my skin is far more moisturized and less irritated than it's ever been! Eczema Honey has given me incredible relief.
I do have to apply it meticulously throughout the day. I keep a hand lotion at my bedside, kitchen sink, and in my purse. I have one tub of the eczema honey…
