Why I Tried Herbal Medicine for Eczema

By Sophia Ruan Gushée (see bio below)

Managing eczema has been a big issue in my family. When my youngest daughter was 3 days old, she began developing eczema. Since my older two children had not experienced eczema or other health issues, I kept waiting for my youngest to outgrow her skin issues as we tried different natural remedies for eczema. Sometimes it seemed that the eczema was subsiding. But, in fact, it was on a general trend of becoming more severe. Eventually I knew I had to try a different course of action. Read more

How Scratch Mittens offer relief for eczema in children

By Andrea Thomas (see bio below)

What started off as a tiny red patch of skin on my newborn daughter, turned into a journey of eczema, skin allergies and craziness. It also inspired me to invent the ScratchMeNot Flip Mitten, a solution that would forever change our family’s experience with eczema.

My daughter was only 2 months when eczema began to rear its face. I, like many moms, went to the doctor to figure out what was wrong. I was told it was just “baby skin”; to give it time for the dry, redness to clear up. Well, it didn’t. As a matter of fact, it spread to all of her joints, face and scalp. These are memories I wish I could go back and change; the days of having a screaming and crying child all day and all night that rarely slept and constantly scratched. This was our life for months.

Best Meal Planning App for People with Food Allergies & Sensitivities

A few months ago I was fed up. I was so very tired of planning meals all the time. In fact, I stopped planning altogether and just barely was pulling meals together just before dinner time. I was bored with cooking and honestly, I was getting bored with food. I remember making a few meals and serving my family, but when it came to my plate, I just couldn’t be bothered. I’d rather have eaten cardboard at the time. And honestly, I’m a self-proclaimed foodie, so becoming tired of food was just something that was not supposed to happen to me. Read more
