I fully agree that it’s important to find the cause of the disease rather then treating the symptoms. I haven’t found the cause if my eczema, it could have been hormonal imbalance, thyroid, autoimmune disorders, stress, etc. The skin problems seem hard to diagnose, but I found a product that worked like a magic. It’s call Herbacort, and it’s available in the Health food stores. It’s a combination of cortisone-like herbs, and it works like cortisone, but has no side effects, except slight stinging when first applied. It might be worth to give it a try.
