Need a Natural Eczema Cream?
Eczema is a skin condition that can cause dry, rough, and inflamed patches of skin on the body. Eczema can be a frustrating condition, whether you are only dealing with it for a few times a year or deal with it every day. There are four main treatment goals for eczema treatment – you want to make sure your treatment will help control the itch, heal the skin, prevent flare-ups, and help prevent infections.
There is widespread agreement among writers that, while there may be no cure, the use of a moisturizer is essential as a natural treatment for eczema. For example:
- In the words of Wikipedia about natural remedies for eczema, “Moisturizing is one of the most important self-care treatments for eczema….Generally, twice-daily applications of emollients (moisturizers) work best.”
- As the authoritative WebMD.com website explains, the basic home remedy for eczema is to shower and then “apply moisturizing skin lotions all over your body.”
- Similarly, the respected Mayo Clinic website says this under natural home remedies for eczema: “Moisturize your skin.Use an oil or cream to seal in moisture while your skin is still damp from a bath or shower. Pay special attention to your legs, arms, back and the sides of your body. If your skin is already dry, consider using a lubricating cream.”
Egyptian Magic Multipurpose Cream deeply moisturizes and not only brings moisture to your skin, but has ingredients with anti-bacterial properties that help stimulate healing of dry skin. This cream can be used anywhere on the skin, from head to toe.
Applying Egyptian Magic as a Natural Eczema Cream
When at home, bathe in cool or warm water, since hot water can dry out your skin. Use a gentle cleaner on eczema affected areas, and don’t use body scrubbers, which can irritate the skin. To dry the skin, pat with a soft towel, instead of rubbing, and leave your skin slightly damp to apply Egyptian Magic. At night, make sure to apply a thick layer of it. You can even wear cotton gloves or socks to help lock in moisture to your hands and feet. Wearing gloves can also help you with the scratching at night in your sleep.
Healthy Skin Tips
Avoid bathing and hand washing too much – especially with hot water. This can dry out your skin even more. Additionally, if you have eczema on your hands, look at the hand soap you are using and avoid anything with harsh ingredients. Avoid contact with harsh chemicals and skin irritants, not just in your natural eczema cream but also in cleaners, laundry detergents, cosmetics, and other household products because can make eczema worse. Know what triggers your eczema, whether it’s pollen, dust, animal dander, or mold, and try to avoid anything that is going to make you react. It may be difficult, but lowering stress levels can help reduce eczema symptoms. And don’t forget to always keep a jar of Egyptian Magic around as a natural and healthy way to help moisturize your skin and relieve some of the symptoms of dry skin.

Dear Egyptian Magic,
I am a pediatrician in private practice in New York City and Kauai. One of my patients brought in her child with a history of eczema; she advised me that her practitioner of traditional Chinese medicine, Rachel Koenig, of Brooklyn, New York, had recommended Egyptian Magic. This child’s skin, weeks after using your product revealed none of its former patchy dryness or generalized “leatheriness.”
I tried out the cream on my own hand: initially greasy, then less so, and finally within a period of fifteen minutes, minimally greasy with residual impactful penetration and softness, all with the lightest, non cloying, pleasing scent. I love that there are components in your preparation that are frankly emollient in quality, like the oil and the beeswax, and the more astringent royal jelly. Neatly constructed and neatly executed. Bravo!
Thanks again for your winning product.

Here’s a review from the MrKongsMom’s YouTube channel. She used Egyptian Magic to treat her daughter’s eczema:
Dear Egyptian Magic,
Just a quick note to say thank you for a great product! This past winter my 4 year old son started getting rashes that were diagnosed as eczema. The dermatologist prescribed a corticosteroid cream, which worked, but I was uncomfortable about using steroids on him long term. His rash would clear up and then return every 2 weeks or so. Last week I discovered Egyptian Magic cream in a magazine ad and went to your web site. After reading your site I decided there was nothing in your product that would hurt my son, so I got a jar to try. It is definitely working to clear up his rash and I feel like this is a natural treatment for eczema that I can use on him long term without worrying about the types of side effects found with steroids. Thanks for a great product. I’m going to let his pediatrician know about Egyptian Magic too.
Dear Egyptian Magic,
I have been a faithful user of Egyptian Magic for almost 7 years. I discovered it in a health food store in the East Village of Manhattan, where I used to live. It has helped me keep my psoriasis under control when everything else I tried failed. The reason I am writing now is that I have been using Egyptian Magic on my 21-month-old daughter who has a bad case of eczema on her arm. Her doctor prescribed two different cortisone creams; neither worked. We saw a dermatologist who prescribed a third, and rather than go that route I have been using Egyptian Magic on her twice a day. I have seen a huge difference since we have started using it on a regular basis. The irritation and itchiness has subsided.
Thank you for keeping our skin feeling great. I am a true believer in your product and a faithful user.

Dear Egyptian Magic
A week ago I contacted Grace’s Health Food store in Spring, Texas to determine if they carried a skin creme with olive oil and was introduced to your creme, but since I knew nothing about it, they kindly gave me a small sample, which I have been using for about a week now. My husband, Roger and I are grandparents and care givers to our two youngest grandsons, 8 and 5 years old, and Andrew, 8 has eczema and Peter, 5, is a Special Needs child with many different issues, the least of his problems being extremely dry lips, since he does not ever wet them.
I have successfully used this creme on Andrew, which already during this short time has helped his eczema more than the prescription creme he has. Peter, who has an extremely developed gag reflex and who has always gagged, no matter what we use on his lips, does not gag when we use Egyptian Magic but, much to our amazement, seems to actually enjoy it and this alone makes this creme extremely special to us! We use it for many other things and last, but definitely not least, I use it as a skin creme and carry it with me wherever I go. I have gone back to Grace’s Health Food store today to purchase a jar, since I know we will all be using this wonderful creme over and over.
Dear Egyptian Magic,
I had been going to a dermatologist here in Salvador for a scalp condition. I also had a rash on my left calf. She thought it could be psoriasis or eczema and gave me some creams. This was about eight months ago. Neither one worked very well. Just enough to make it a little better. I had avoided putting EM on that spot thinking it might get in the way of the medicinal cream. Then on one of your emails I saw that people had used EM on conditions like this. So, I stopped the medicine stuff and made sure i kept EM on it. I saw a change in one day and now after about weeks the rash is gone. This after persistently bothering me for months!
Dear Egyptian Magic,
For years, I’ve had terrible eczema outbreaks around my eyes. Dermatologists recommended using cortisone creams sparingly, and I’ve also received cortisone shots. But, of course, the side effects of cortisone creams and injections are many. During a recent outbreak, my beautician gave me a sample of Egyptian Magic skin cream after seeing how dry, flaky and painful my eyelids were. After one day, the inflammation decreased significantly, and within three days, the eczema around my eyes had completely disappeared. I now use Egyptian Magic for all of my eczema outbreaks, as well as for dry hands and feet, for chapped lips, as a hair balm, and even for dry spots on my toddler’s skin. It’s such a relief to have found a natural treatment for eczema that works so well and is all natural, leaving no side-effects.
Dear Egyptian Magic,
I am writing to you about my son J, who was born with Atopic Dermatitis (eczema) and has been in and out of hospitals since he was 3 months old. When he was 11 years old, the medication the doctors had been giving him (steroids, cortisone, erythromycin, etc.) had started to destroy his liver and kidneys. At this point, we decided to try a natural home remedy for eczema with herbs and vitamins. Because his skin was constantly splitting and cracking, we first tried Flaxseed oil, but this did not help his skin. We were told about “Egyptian Magic All-Purpose Healing Skin Cream” and given a sample which we tried on his hand. After ascertaining that J was not allergic to it, we have continued to use a jar a day to cover his entire body. J can now walk outside without his skin separating, by maintaining the moisture level in his epidermis. Thank you for providing my son with a reduction in the amount of pain he suffers from his disease.
