Studies have had positive results for an all-natural, external treatment that can bring relief for eczema. It's vitamin B12, in the form of a cream. The B-complex has always had a reputation as a skin healer, so this isn't news. But often, what could work as a supplement doesn't always work as a cream.
A persistent, itchy, uncomfortable rash of many origins, eczema
can drive sufferers to distraction, particularly in the winter months. While eczema
is often linked with allergies
, the winter weather can exacerbate the condition. The most common topical prescribed is corticosteroids, which can have negative side effects, especially over time. Having an alternative to relieve the itching and start healing the skin will be a welcome change for many.
The best news is you might not need a prescription - vitamin B12 cream can be readily available over the counter.
What you put inside your body is as important as what you put on your skin
If you struggle with eczema on a regular basis and don’t know the cause, visit a nutritionally oriented physician. The vitamin B12 cream offers relief, but diagnosis of the cause and a treatment plan that might eliminate your eczema over time is still preferable.
Dr. Wright has long advised that your skin’s good health is more of a result of what you put inside your body than what you slather on topically. But while you’re working on the other aspects triggering your eczema, getting some extra relief in the form of vitamin B12 cream certainly can’t hurt.
