Is there an exzema shampoo out there that really works? I am a 23 year old adult and I first got exzema when I was sixteen on both sides of my face right next to my nose.  Cortizone cream takes care of that, but I also have it horrible on my head, so bad that whenever I grow hair it itches to badly and the white flakes everywhere don't help my appearance, so I just shave my head, and when I apply the cream it goes away.  Is there any kind of shampoo that works, prescription or other?  I have tried Selson Blue, T-GEL, all the other dandruff shampoos in the store and nothing has worked.  Does anyone have any clues?

Well my friend, I get exzema really really bad and i'm22 years old, if you are getting it on your head, it may not be exzema, try using nizoral shampoo which you could pick up at a local drug store. Nizoral shampoo is used for fungas related skin problems. it may help you. it ranges from 7 - 10 dollars canadian. Do you wear a hat alot in the summer, cause if you do you could be sweating so much it is causing an irritaion on your scalp.
good luck my friend

Use Paul Mitchell Tea Tree Oil shampoo and treatment.  It is the best by far

There is a new treatment on the market since a few years.(Davidson's)
It is "Hair Care Treatment" from APIS MELLIFERA" based on natural beehive ingredients from New Zealand.(no comparison with the "manuka-marketing stuff)This is real, and proved to be truly amazing.
The importer is TIMARU B UK Ltd.
Write an email to them :
hans.staal@btinternet.com and ask for information about the skin care cream and the hair care treatment. They will give you detailed information.
Their creams heal excemas and psoriasis, and dermatitis within some weeks is my experience. Ferdinand.

Simple. Tar shampoo. I have fought this for years and it works the best. Once you get it under control, you only need to use it every few days. You know, you get that itch! You can get it at most drug stores. Get the genaric for about $2. You will be suprised. Don't spent big $ on all that other stuff, this really works!

Eczema is the symptom of what is going on in your intestines.  I highly recommend a product called Threelac - beneficial bacteria and Oxygen elements plus - amino acids and trace minerals.

I have had eczema all my life, 37 years and after I changed my diet no sugar no milk no wheat and cleared the fungus/candida  in my intestines and replaced with beneficial bacteria, my skin is now clearing.  Eczema is not a skin issue it is an intestinal issue.  And there is s cure for eczema.

I know of quite a few people with eczema problems that found relief right away. They used one of several products made by Melaleuca "The Wellness Company".  Most of those I've spoken with have been able to quit taking prescription drugs.  Visit Melaleuca.com or email me at rodsunny@ptdprolog.net, I'll be glad to explain in more detail.

Hi, My son has what appears to be the same condition as you have.  We live in NZ and have tried the Apis mellifera hair care treatment.  He also uses the product on his face which has had wonderful results not only for the eczema but as he is a teen, it has been great with his acne.  We have since gotten rid of all the acne face washes and we no longer use steroidal creams.  It has been wonderful.  One product for the condition. My advice would be to try it.You will be pleased with the result. Davidson's (mentioned earlier) is the same company we got the product from.  They have a website: www.beewild.com  check it out, you won't be disappointed. I tell everyone about this stuff - I think it's marvelous.

I my son has exzema, his skin tends to create these really painful rashes on his cheeks, in the back of his ears, on his stomach and on his knees but it is really worse in his head, he also tends to get these really big flaky particles in his head. I also have to shave his head like every 3 weeks because i can't find anything that would get rid of the flaking i tend to wash his hair every other day because the flaking gets so worse. Sometimes i comb is head and he starts to cry and i think that it hurts him so bad that i can't really comb his hair.

try using the olive oil conditioner produced by
L'occitane   from Provance.
I've had really good results by pouring on my scalp between washing.
It worked better than the other suggested shampoos.Tea Tree Oil made my problem worse.Also try Ionil rinse or try the RX shampoo made from peanut oil.

I found the only thing that worked for me is Arbonne's products.  They are pH balanced to human skin (6.5 pH), free of all mineral oil and all animal products and by products. THINK OF IT - DO YOU REALLY WANT PETROLEUM AND ANIMAL FAT ON YOUR SKIN?  ie mineral oil, lanolin, petroleum jelly, tar, collagen, etc.
Those tiny nanospheres (Arbonne pioneered its use in skin care) really help too, as the nutrients in the products can interact on the cellular level.  I only wish I had known this much earlier in life, but be it as it may - I now enjoy clear skin and flake-free and itch-free scalp.  Contact me at missmiss71@msn.com for more info.

I have had eczema since I was 14 and I am 21. It was really really bad on my head at 14 but I used tar shampoos or head and shoulders. Once you get that under control you really just have to use it every once in awhile. My prob right now is that it is breaking out bad again. It's taking a while to see nay improvement too. any other suggestions?

I have dealt with the same issue for many years.  I have found the best solution is to treat the eczema on the scalp the same way you treat any of your other eczema - with cortizone!  I have found Betamethasone dipropionate lotion for the scalp to be effective - consult your dermatologist as it requires a prescription.  Once the eczema is under control, the skin can handle any mild shampoo such as Neutrogena Healthy Scalp or Tom's of Maine.  Good luck.

In case anyone else is searching for good products on eczema, I found a product called aquaphillac ointment. It comes in a small white tub, and has the consistency of Crisco without the grease (pharmacy dept). It is a very thick cream; you have to let it soak in. It works though! Problem is that I have only been able to find it at Walmart'sin Iowa..no other state. But, if you are from Iowa, check it out.

I have had exzema all my life.  I find that the best thing to do if it starts on my head is to 1. start washing my hair less.  Not everyday.  Let some of your natural oils build up.  2.  Use a herbal shampoo with no fragrances in it.  If you go to a bulk food store or herbal store, you will find a lot to choose from.

My hair stylist suggested a product called gentle naturals cradle cap treatment. (cradle cap is just like the baby version of adult excema)you can find it in the baby section. It costs about eight dollars and doesn't smell very good, but the smell goes away after shampooing. I have tried everything including rx shampoos and this works better than anything. Put in on your scalp, let it set for a few minutes and then take a pick or comb and scrape all of the dead skin off.  I usually put a shower cap on after I do this and let it set for at least a half hour, then shampoo out with your regular shampoo.(A good one to use is Paul Mitchel Tea Tree Shampoo.)

I've had eczema since birth- you need to make sure that the scalp is always well oiled - being a girl i don't always have off all my hair!!! use ALPHOSYLL shampoo - not as strong as t-gel -

use every other wash - and to keep your scalp oiled - massage oil(any oil u prefer) into head before going to into shower - better still leave overnight and rinse out in morning!!

You need to starting using Skin Supplement by Tahitian Noni. my clients are excited about how they no longer have to deal with the condition. Also, you will want to drink Tahitian Noni Juice..none of the fake noni stuff with sugar and alcohol. I use to have arthritis in my right knee and was borderline type 2 diabectic. my doctors cleared me of both conditions. Feel free to call me at 601-421-0500

Melaleuca products contain tee tree oil and one of its side effects (albeit rare) is Eczema.  I know because I used the product and voila...Eczema.

I am almost 50 and still having problems. I have tried many shampoos over the years. If a shampoo dries my scalp, it is worse. Some of the conditioners makes it worse. The best shampoo that I have tried is matrix essentials - alternate action clarifying shampoo. Although the bottle does not claim this helps, I accidentally found it does.

And I can wash my head every 2-3 days now, where before I had to wash my hair every 1-2 days before the itching and raw oozy spots set in. This shampoo leaves my scalp much cleaner feeling. It wouldn't hurt to try a bottle and see if it works for you. I found the matrix essentials - alternate action clarifying shampoo at a hair saloon but it is cheaper on-line.

I am sure when I am older and hit the nursing home, they won't wash my head as often as needed. They washed my grandmothers every two weeks. Anyway, my head will be completely raw with oozy sores by then. Good luck, this is life long. It may help to keep a log of the shampoos that helps or makes it worse.

My son has eczema and I treat him with calamine lotion (old school).  I apply it to his neck and joints twice a day and it keeps it under control.  As far as a shampoo, I shampoo his hair with any all natural shampoo and keep olive oil on his head.  If you have eczema or just plain old dry skin, you cannot wash your hair everyday PEOPLE!!  This is just my remedy for my situation, I'm not saying that this will work for you.

STAY AWAY FROM shampoos and soaps with Sodium Lauryl Sulfate.  They eat your skin up.  Stay away from refined foods and limit your sugar intake. While you are healing, stay away from too many hair gels and hair products.  You may have to change your hair products to a more natural brand, like Giovanni.  Trader Joe's also sells a good brand.   Take 1 tablespoon of Good Quality Cod Liver Oil everyday.  If it is good quality it tastes fine.  Use Mayumi Squalene natural skin supplement, apply it directly to the skin.  Take at least two tablespoons of ground flax seeds everyday.  SEA SALT baths to heal and calm itch (or non- polluted ocean water).  It may sting for about a minute, but it will go away.    Tea Tree Oil and Melaleuca is good also.  While healing , keep your hair, hands, nails and pillow cases clean.  Rinse pillow cases and bedding 2 times, to get all of the detergent out.  Get plenty of rest and exercise. I have suffered all of my life with eczema, and these measures seem to help the best for me.

i have excema on my head, and if i don't take care of it, it can get pretty bad. the thing i have found in the past that works is to simply drink a lot of water. i don't do this as much as i should but if i drink about 80-100 ounces of plain water a day my excema will clear up completely. not sure if this works for  others but compared to spending a ton on shampoos it's worth a try.
