    Suggest treatment for severe eczema

Posted on Fri, 11 Aug 2017 in Alternative Medicine
Question: I have been suffering from eczema since childhood. It had occurred at an early age and was cured. Later, around year 2000 and then again around 2007-2008, I had got eczema on my legs ( behind my knees and legs ) and also minor patch on my knuckles. This was cured with homeopathy medicine which took almost 2-3 years to cure. Again , I have got a relapse of eczema on my legs this Dec 2016. Allopathy medicine does not agree with me and gives side effects. Please advise on a permanent and especially a quick cure to this problem.
