Eczema treatment before and after: Woman CURED her skin with THIS £1 bathing trick

Vicky Worth, 31, has eczema - also called atopic dermatitis - that causes the skin to become itchy, red, dry and cracked, according to the NHS.

Alongside psoriasis and rosacea, which a woman recently claimed she treated with a cream made from capers, the condition is surprisingly common and affects one in 12 adults, and one in five children, in the UK.

Recent research revealed there were five different types of eczema.

One sufferer is Hertfordshire-based Vicky who started experiencing symptoms three decades ago.

“I’ve suffered with eczema since I was a baby,” the retail assistant explained.

“But when I hit age 14, it started to appear on my head and face.

“I was given different medications and creams, but nothing worked.”

Sufferers are often prescribed emollients and told to avoid everyday triggers such as diet. In some cases they are given steroids.

This happened to Vicky just after her 21st birthday, and while it initially helped her face swelled up and and she was forced to abandon them.

However, her symptoms persisted and began affecting other aspects of her life, including socialising and her career.

“Throughout my 20’s my eczema affected me to the point that I wouldn’t go out,” she said.

“I couldn’t wear make up and on the odd times I did, taking it off was really painful.

“People would stare at me and I was often asked what was wrong with me.

“At work, one customer asked if I was a burns victim. Another told me I shouldn’t be working, as I looked contagious and complained to my manager.”

The symptoms affected Vicky’s confidence and self-esteem, and she felt helpless about how to improve her skin.

Around four years ago she was prescribed protopic cream, which is an immunosuppressant used to treat severe eczema when other creams and medications haven’t worked. While it helped her face, it caused an unpleasant burning sensation.

“Then a year ago, a friend recommended I try bathing in epsom salts,” she said.

Epsom salts are properly called magnesium sulphate, and they have traditionally been used to ease aching muscles.

“I ordered them from The Epsom Salts Company (epsomsalts.co.uk), and noticed a difference after the first week - my skin was less raw and itchy,” she said. 

“Now I bathe three times a week with them.

“I was actually so impressed with the bath salts that I tried the shampoo and body wash too. They work brilliantly.

“My eczema has completely gone  - not just on my face, but also on my head, neck and my back.

“The salts make my skin smooth too and don’t dry my skin out at all, unlike other natural products I have used.”

The salts are surprisingly affordable, costing £5 for a bag or £20 for 10kg. The latter means bathing in the salts costs just £1 a time.

Vicky said that using Epsom salts for her eczema has changed her life completely.

“People no longer stare at me or ask what is wrong with my skin,” she said.

“I don’t have to worry about flakey skin going on my dark clothes or brushing myself down constantly.

“I no longer get cuts in my head or patches of eczema on my scalp.

“Before, I didn’t want to face anyone, but now I feel like I can.”
