OCCUPATION: Early Childhood Educator
HEALTH ISSUE: Eczema
SYMPTOMS: Chronic itching, development of rash on inside of the elbows and knees.
HEALTH RECOMMENDATIONS: I have had issues with eczema since my childhood. When I was younger, my mom would apply coconut oil to my skin during flare-ups. I still use this remedy: because this substance is extremely nourishing and moisturizing for the skin, it works really well for me.
THE RESULTS: When I have eczema, coconut oil is my go-to. It helps to soothe rashes and keep the affected areas hydrated.
