Using CBD for Eczema
Using CBD for Eczema
Every now and then we take a look at stories that have surfaced in the UK press relating to the use of CBD in the UK and in particular, the success stories where individuals claim to have overcome acute medical conditions by using CBD based products. In this case they used CBD for Eczema and to great effect after they had been hospitalised because of the condition.
Cheryl Halliburton a 27 year old mum started to experience issues with her skin when she became pregnant with her now 3 year old daughter, Alexis. This started when she was aged 23 and has been ongoing for 3, nearly 4 years.
The eczema regularly left Cheryl with open sores. It would cause her skin to go bright red and to start cracking which led to constantly sore and weeping wounds. It started on her back, and so she was given steroids to combat the issue. Sadly it cleared up on her back but immediately flared up on her neck and face and has continued ever since.
Cheryl was quoted in the Metro as saying,
‘It would flare up every couple of days depending on what I was eating and it would be an uncontrollable itch. No cream I put on it would soothe it in fact it would often make it worse.
‘I would feel like I wanted to rip my skin off.
‘I felt like I couldn’t go on anymore as I was just not getting any answers from the doctors. ‘On bad days I wasn’t even able to take my daughter to nursery or would be unable to work or leave the house and a combination of antihistamine and painkillers would make me drowsy.’
Cheryl attended multiple appointments and tried every known conventional treatment in order to find relief but was sadly unable to make any meaningful progress. This left her unable to do most daily activities such as wearing make-up and going out with friends.
At the start of August the situation got so bad for Cheryl that her husband Craig rushed her to hospital. She had open, weeping sores on her chest, felt sick, cold and shaky. Cheryl had to be put on a drip overnight to treat the infection that had affected her so aggressively.
All tests carried out by the doctors came back normal leaving Cheryl and the medical profession out of ideas.
CBD for Eczema in Vape Form
It was at that point that Cheryl decided to try CBD for her eczema. She initially took it in drop form but didn’t like the taste, so she then tried the CBD for eczema in vape form and had amazing results.
In just two weeks her skin had cleared up and she has had no sign of it returning so far. This is even when eating foods that had previously been thought to trigger reactions in the past.
Cheryl has since been able to get back to enjoying normal life again, from eating normal foods to going outside to play with Alexis.
Although it still cannot be stated as medical fact that CBD oil or CBD in any form was responsible for Cheryl’s return to health, it seems to be a recurring theme whereby CBD has been involved and positive results have then been recorded.
All we can hope is that others suffering such debilitating conditions read about examples like this and potentially find an alternative treatment in the same way that Cheryl did.
