ok i have had eczema my whole life all 28 years of it and yes I started out doing the hot water thing and it calmed it down instantly. But as I got older and starting to really research this thing it's really bad to use it. It does more harm than good it drys it out more. I have it everywhere face,arms,legs,neck,hair but my hands are the worst when it comes to itching. I saw on tv about how a half a cup of bleach would help reduce the itching. And it does but it also cleans the infected area where your itching and using dirty nails that have been touching everything to make it worst. I thought about how when I was a kid and we went swiming everyday that back then my eczema was most inproved. So start with a small area like your hands and pat them dry and use a deep cream like Shea Butter or Cera ve. Please note that I've never tried it on my face, I'm trying to develop a cleaser for that.!!!!
