Well the long hot summer seems to have left us here in Wales, my hand eczema has been well behaved during this period thank heavens.
I am not certain of the reason but my hands are now looking better than they have done for many many months. Could it be the Childs Farm Moisturiser that has caused this, or maybe my new predominantly vegetarian diet.
As is normal during the festive season, my hand eczema flared up with a vengence. The cold weather did not help the condition and I spent a lot of time wearing cotton gloves.
Having been told recently that dairy products are one of the main triggers for Eczema I have decided to try to remove them from my diet. Not easy for somebody who loves strong white coffee, butter on potatoes and cream cakes. I will give it a go and keep you updated as to how things progress, if at all.
There are many studies as to the possible causes of Hand Eczema and many volumes exist regarding treatment and possible cures, but the psychological effects of having this condition is rarely documented by comparison.
