I contracted nummular eczema 8 years before being diagnosed with Crohn's. I've never been able to get rid of it completely and I've tried numerous topical steroids and alternative treatments to clear it up. Actually, when I was prescribed an 8 week course of prednisone after my CD diagnosis, the eczema did disappear, but came roaring back after the pred was stopped. I was hoping that the SCD might clear it up, but no dice.
All that said, a few months ago I stumbled across a website for a lady who practices Chinese medicine and runs a clinic (called the Merry Li Clinic) totally devoted to treating skin disorders. Her products aren't cheap, but she offers a money back guarantee and receives a high rating from the Better Business Bureau, so I figured what the hey, what have I got to lose?
I've been using her supplements for about the last two months and have seen really tremendous improvement. I'd say that I'm at least 90% cleared up. I plan to stay on the supps for a couple more months and then stop and see what happens. Anybody who is interested can easily find her website by searching her clinic's name.
