A fluid diet for eczema? Never heard of it as part of any treatment. Eczema is genetically-dry skin, so if you are having an exacerbation or worsening of your symptoms, you may need a change in treatment.
- The mainstay of eczema management is moisturization, so find a good moisturizing cream that is free of perfumes.
- Topical steroid creams are very helpful, but the best ones require a prescription. Call your medical provider.
- Control itching with antihistamines, assuming you can take this type of medication. Please avoid scratching and digging at these areas.
- Open, eczematous skin can become secondarily infected, so if you think your eczema is infected, you will need to consult your medical provider for treatment; usually antibiotics
Eczema is usually with you for life, so finding the right combination of medications and supportive treatments is important. I don't think a fluid diet for two weeks is going to help in any way.
