Does Rubbing Alcohol Help Eczema?
Rubbing alcohol pro’s:
1. This is a very cheap eczema treatment. You can find treatments for eczema for more than 100 dollars a month, payments on a nice car only cost 200-300 dollars! You can find rubbing alcohol in grocery stores as well as other convenience stores for under ten dollars. All in all you can count on spending less than twenty dollars a month treating your eczema if you choose this option. Drug companies could come up with an eczema product, use this as their main ingredient and sell it for five times the price,
2. This is a very strong treatment; it works by drying out the skin, making eczema less severe. There is not a question of if this treatment will work for you, the question is whether the potential side effects are worth it or not.
Con’s to using this to treat eczema:
1. Rubbing alcohol is very strong, which is a bad thing for many people. It will try your skin out in an instant, routinely making your skin flaky, dry, and red. It will be painful and may even make your eczema situation worse in the long run.
2. This is not meant to treat eczema. This means there will not only be serious side effects, but there are no real tests as to how the treatment will co-exist with your skin over time.
Rubbing alcohol is a very cost effective treatment that has been proven to work, which means you deserve to give it a try no matter the side effects.
