Most of us know someone who suffer eczema and I was one of them as a child. My grandad who is a chinese herbalist handed down this remedy to my mum.
I was allegic to dairy products such as milk, cheese and chocolate since the age of three. My conditions were very serious my ears,legs and arms were often very itchy and i could'nt ressist scracthing them.
My mum did'nt want to weaken my immune systems by using antibiotics so we used Chinese remedies, these were very commonly sold in chinese medicine shops, as ready made remedy which isn't too cheap. And in this instructable we will teach you how to make this remedy that you can drink or apply as liquid to your skin to cure eczema. If your conditions are mild this will cure it whithin a week or two. But if your conditions are serious it will probably take a month or so. Drinking this remedy will also help you to prevent getting a sore throat.
