If you are one of the millions of people with eczema on feet, you are probably wondering how eczema on foot happened in the first place and how you can get rid of it. Eczema on feet and hands has a special name. It is called dyshidrotic eczema.  The causes of eczema and especially of dyshidrotic eczema are not understood by doctors but it seems to be affected by the weather. It tends to be out in force when the weather is really hot and humid or cold and dry.

Treating eczema on foot is best left to doctors, but of course, not everyone is able to see a doctor so there are things you can do at home to help the itching and burning of eczema. One of the first things you should do is to get on an antihistamine.  These are allergy pills that can help stop the itching.  You can also try products that are available over the counter for itching like medicated powders or Aveeno brand itchy skin formula.

One of the homeopathic and natural remedies for eczema on the feet is to use thuja. This is a type of tree extract. You can find it at many health food stores or alternative medicine shops.  The king of all home remedies, apple cider vinegar is also effective at getting rid of the burning and itching of eczema on the foot. Make yourself a warm, not hot and not cold, foot bath with water and a half cup of apple cider vinegar. Soak for about 15 minutes for relief.

Some people have found success in healing their eczema by using aloe vera lotion or even drinking aloe vera juice. It is usually found at health food stores. Aloe vera is a very soothing plant good for many problems of the skin. For some reason eating yogurt also seems to help people feel some relief. Others suggest instead of eating yogurt to actually put plain yogurt directly on the eczema. The cooling sensation helps the burning and there are active cultures that can help the itching and promote healing.

You can make a type of topical location out of olive oil and rosemary that some people have found success with as well. One final tip to help treat eczema at home is to start taking a multivitamin and changing your diet to eliminate processed foods from your life.
