Scary skin problem...

Dadi has skin problem – Eczema, the word that I scare most. Even before Jona was born, I have been extremely careful with my food intake, hoping to reduce the possibility of Jona getting eczema. Seem nothing can change the genetic inherited I guess?

Just a slightly redness...

Early this year, Jona got slightly redness in the area of between nose and upper lip. And, I thought it is just his habit of love to wipe that area. No matter how I apply moisturizer on it, it just didn’t go away instead it turn from BAD to WORST. When evil redness came, dry and cracking monster will following from behind and during this time, Jona will feel very uncomfortable and get the pain. Some bleeding and then, pus(yellowish plasma) will appeared. The scenario really looks horrible!!!

The worst scenario...


It make my heart pain when I see he get lot of comments from everyone who saw him when I sent him to drama class/music class/Sunday school, till Iz even know how to help his kor kor to answer them back “It is not dirty, it is eczema!!” when someone ask Jona “Why your lip look so dirty and why don’t get some tissue to wipe it off??”

We have brought him see GP, Pediatrician and even Skin Specialist, and seem nothing is workable at this moment. Jona has been taking an anti allergic pill, apply steroid, moisturizer, and when it gets better and I stop the pill or steroid, the redness appear back again.

Cost me A BOMB!! Thanks to Eumora..

Expensive treatment for Jona...

I did even let Jona try this product called ‘Eumora’ and guess what. It not only didn’t help Jona. It even makes me spend hundred Ringgits at skin specialist for myself and Jona when I get serious pimple outbreak(trying it out for myself)!!

I tried most of the method that friends/relatives advice includes check whether he is allergic to any type of foods, the room that he sleep whether there is any mold on the wall but till today, nothing fruitful yet.

Mommies, any idea or solution that can help Jona get rid of this eczema? I just wish Jona skin will return back to his smooth and healthy skin again.

My older girl had really bad eczema when she was younger too (she's 10 now). She had really dry skin around her eyes. For many years now, we use Cetaphil or QV products at home - body wash and creams. She has more or less outgrown the problem, with the odd flare up. Sometimes, it could also be related to diet. I remembered we took her to see a naturopath and were given advice about types of food to avoid - mainly processed foods and ones with additives. It's really heartbreaking when you see their beautiful skin 'marked'.

hmm... I hear that skin problems can be further aggravated by food and environment, like smoke, seafood, milkbased, peanuts, etc.
My mum introduced some stuffs to her friend to lessen her skin problem and it kinda worked - bathe in some plants, and some chinese medicine herbs with seahorse brew or something. can't really remember.
