Homemade Eczema Treatment (7): Butter

OK, I haven’t try this out and so I cannot validate that this works. However, according to an unspecified contributor at Home Remedies, she said:

“I … pray for me so that i could get rid of my eczema. The next day somehow a stick of butter had gotten on my table and I thought to myself, this must be a sign. Now my eczema is completely cleared because I rub a stick of butter on my skin everyday!

    What type of butter did you use? Unsalted? Pure butter? How many times a day did you use it? Please explain.

    Hi Candy
    It’s tough to answer your question as I haven’t try out this method myself. However, I believe it’s the common butter we normally used at home. I did a google search but yields little results. Have you tried Crisco? It works well.

    Thank you for the crisco suggestion. I’ve tried borage oil, fish oil, vitamin 5 oil, olive oil, hydrocortisone cream, Sarna lotion, vaseline, you name it, except butter and crisco.

    The answer is NO.
    Steroid creams and gels have a harmful side affect on already thin skin. (such as the face, eyelids, penis and armpits.)

    I have experimented at bed-time with mixing the gel from the Aloe Vera plant with either Castor, Virgin Olive, or Vitamin E oils, works well. Simply slice open the leaf the leave and apply a very generous amount of the gel, then a liberal amount of the oil. (I prefer extra virgin olive) try this every nite for a week.

    While I loved the body butters form Bath & Body Works, I am not so sure about Crisco. seaweed body butters also are pretty darn effective. The seaweed gives a nice soothing feeling, I doubt Crisco or oatmeal offer!
