I originally posted this in the eczema forum, and thought to add it here just in case it may also help with other forms of skin problems.>>>
hello all, I had severe pompholyx eczema for 3 yrs, went to the dermatologist many times ,was given steriods, it came back every time after a couple of weeks with a vengence, I was miserable
,I began trying every thing that the health food stores had, every herb, vitamine and mineral,acv ,tee tree oil ,you name it.
Then I came across MSM or also known as organic sulfer. I began taking one 1000 ml powered capsule twice a day, I noticed an improvement within 4 days, then I started upping the dose every three days until I was taking 7 capsules a day. by the end of the month I was completely healed, it has been almost 2yrs and not one blister .
Please take warning ,though.... do not try and start out with a real high dose, because what msm does, is make your cells more permeable and releases toxins from the cells, so if you try to start out with a high dose your body will not be able to rid it's self fast enough of the toxins and you may get headaches and dizziness, also drink lots of water to flush toxins from your body. some may even need to start out at two doses of 500 ml a day, then work yourself up to higher doses. you can also buy creams and lotions with msm in them, but there may be irratants in them as well.
I feel the capsules with the powdered msm work best. you can also open a capsule and mix with a few drops of water then apply to blisters with cotton ball. do a search for your self, the only known side effect is increased hair growth on the head. there was even a study done that shows that msm can reverse some liver damage.
also wanted to add that after that first month of treatment,I continued one more month but after that I have not took any more msm.please let me know of your success
