•   Evening primrose oil restores GLA levels, which tend to be low in people with eczema. Take two 500-milligram capsules three times daily. Evening primrose oil can also be applied topically once a day to reduce inflammation and redness.

•   Licorice is both antiinflammatory and antiallergenic. Take one of the following three times daily: 1 to 2 grams powdered root, 2 to 4 milliliters fluid extract, or 250 to 500 milligrams dry powdered extract.

•   Chamomile has been found to be very effective in reducing the inflammation and itching of eczema, probably because of its naturally antiinflammatory chemical flavonoids. Chamomile is available commercially; follow package directions.

•   Zinc restores low zinc levels usually seen in patients with eczema; it also promotes tissue repair. Take 45 to 60 milligrams daily, reduce to 30 milligrams when eczema clears.
