Foot Eczema Can Be Healed

feetIf you suffer from Foot Eczema just be assured that all is not lost and your skin can return back to its former glory. Even if you also have toenail fungus.

It is easy to catch toenail fungus from using foot spas that haven’t been properly cleaned and disinfected.  But for now we are focusing on Foot Eczema.

Eczema has a way of travelling round different parts of the body when the mood catches it.  I am sure that, if you suffer from this dreaded disease, that you are very tired of trying to be vigilant and stop an itch in it’s tracks before it spreads and turns to a flare up.

First Soak Your Feet in Dead Sea Salt Water

This will soothe your feet, moisturise them and prepare them for treating with green French Argiletz clay.  Soak your feet for 10 minutes and pat skin leaving it slightly damp.

Then apply a mix of Argiletz clay paste (1 teaspoon of olive oil and 1 tablespoon of water to 30g of clay powder) to both feet or where the eczema patches are on your feet.  Make sure to mix the paste until there are no lumps in it. It should end up being a thick creamy consistency.

Secondly, Wrap Your Feet in Cling Film

Wrap your feet twice in cling film after apply the clay paste.  Put on thick socks, then wear comfortable slippers or shoes if you are going out.  You can wear this all day…Your feet will be moistened and heal rapidly as a result of leaving the clay on for so long.

In the Morning, Rinse Your Feet

Rinse your feet with lukewarm water, then repeat the procedure. Or, if you want, you can leave your feet to get dry for one hour, before going through the routine again.

Moisturise With Shea Butter or Olive Oil

Moisturise your feet and toenails with shea butter or olive oil while your skin is still damp…

Ensure to wear thick cotton socks and thick slippers to cushion your feet from the floor, especially if you don’t have a carpet or rug.

Do this routine every day for one week, then every other day then maintain your feet health every two weeks with the above method.

As time progresses, your feet will heal up enough for you to use a pumice stone on your heels.  And then you will have soft baby feet.

    Wow I’ve heard about this, getting fungus from a foot spa.  You’re supposed to go to a spa to be pampered and get relaxed, and make yourself beautiful… not catch something gross.  These tips sound great, it sounds like a spa treatment in itself.  One could totally do this even if they don’t have eczema or fungus!

      Yes, I didn’t know I had fungus on my nails til I’d been to a spa consistently for 3 months, then they told me what it was…By then the fungus had spread to all my toes except the big one.

      However, I’m working on getting the fungus to disappear…over time.

      Foot treatment with clay paste is divine though…I’ve been treating my Mother with it and her feet don’t hurt anymore…

    A friend was suggesting me to take an oral allergy or anti-itch medication. Some of the options are over-the-counter allergy medications (antihistamines), such as cetirizine (Zyrtec) or fexofenadine (Allegra). But I didn’t feel comfortable with the idea so I decided to come online and do my research. I am glad I found your post. I will follow your more natural solution.

      Yes, the problem with most conventional medicine is the side effects.  As the medicine is synthetic, our bodies do not see it as food, but rather an intruder, so it will build up a counter attack by trying to get it out of the body as waste.  And that can come through our skin, causing an even worse allergic reaction.

      I had to learn the hard way and through many years of trial and error found out what remedies worked and which ones didn’t.

      So I wish you many hours of happy reading!

    Hi, I went through all these tips and I think they are truly great tips. I’ve been struggling with itchy skin for ages and I hope these tips bring good results for me. I must say I never realized that I can catch fungus at a spa and always thought that spas are the healthiest places to pamper myself. Thanks for sharing such helpful information with us, will be sharing it too.

      Yes, Koko – this is why you have to wear slippers even in a spa.  We can catch germs off each other in such places. I am glad you find this article helpful…
