Eczema is a recurring, inflammatory skin problem that afflicts more than 15 million Americans. Often chronic in nature, its common characteristics are intensely itchy, very dry skin, blisters that seep and then form a crust, or tough, leathery patches where skin color has changed. Although the exact causes of eczema are unknown, there appears to be strong hereditary and allergic components to the condition. Many eczema sufferers often also suffer from seasonal allergies. Digestive malabsorption may also be a precursor to eczema, and people with conditions such as Crohn's Disease or diverticulitis seem to be prone to eczema.

There is no known cure for eczema, but there are many effective eczema remedies that can soothe, and some say even cure eczema. Dead Sea minerals have proven to be one of the best eczema relief strategies available. Many people who visit the Dead Sea for their eczema have found that the precious Dead Sea mud is also a powerful treatment for eczema. What is certain is that the minerals in Awakening's Dead Sea skin care products are extraordinarily effective at relieving the itching associated with eczema. Many of our customers have been amazed at how effective they are at providing lasting relief from their eczema symptoms.

"That night we tried [Awakening HANDS] on our son who has eczema. We have tried several products including very expensive prescription creams. To our surprise in only a couple of days the eczema had completely disappeared!" — Diane Hogan
