Eczema? Try This Solution From Cheryl Lee MD

My husband had the opportunity to try Cheryl Lee MD's line of products for his skin conditions. While these products were specifically for eczema, we don't know exactly whether he has eczema or psoriasis. I think it is psoriasis.

This is why you should go to the doctor WITH your husband, because he came home and was prescribed some ointment, but couldn't remember what the dermatologist told him he had. The ointment worked for a few days and then stopped working. So for the past few years my husband has been using OTC hydrocortisone cream from the drug store.

Since I only had one incident of eczema I didn't think I should review it, so I turned it over to my husband, as it should help him, whatever skin condition he has.

After two weeks of use:

His skin looks better. He doesn't know if it has anything to do with the creams he has been using, but I know that it has helped. He may think it is coincidence, but even after he shaves, his face is not red and blotchy under where his whiskers were.

While I feel strongly about treating the source of the issue, not just the symptoms, sometimes you either cannot find out the source (as it is a long journey, searching for answers) or you want relief NOW while you are working on nipping the problem in the bud.

Most skin problems stem from food allergies, autoimmune conditions or exposure to environmental toxins. This cream will not help you all of the sudden heal your autoimmune disorder. But, it should help with the symptoms while you search for more answers to heal yourself (most of the time it stems in the gut -- leaky gut, gut dysbiosis, etc).

And while I am really into only putting natural things onto my skin, my husband isn't. He doesn't care too much about toxic chemicals that he is putting into his body via his skin.

One thing about the skin is that when lotions and personal care products are absorbed into your body via the skin, there is no filter, it goes directly to the bloodstream. When taking something orally, you have your liver to act as a filter. This is one reason why transdermal medications are becoming more popular.

I can say this cream is free from:
  • Parabens
  • Fragrances
  • PEG
  • Formaldehyde
However, the TrueLipids Relieve and Protect Ointment has petroleum jelly in it, something I avoid personally. I am ok with my husband using it because it is almost perfect. And it is very hard to find something that works, that is 100% all natural. I just wanted to point that out to you.

The TrueLipids Eczema Cream has 1% hydrocortisone in it along with some other ingredients. Sometimes I use hydrocortisone so I cannot begrudge him from using it, especially when it gives him so much relief.

And the best thing would be for him to heal from the inside out, but that isn't going to happen. Just getting him to eat some vegetables is like trying to potty train a dragon. (Not that I have any experience).
