Eczema is a non-contagious, chronic skin condition. The most important characteristic, however, is the itchy rash, which can often be severe. The skin of people with eczema has trouble retaining moisture and is often extremely dry.
-Red, flaky, cracked patches on the skin.
-Small, fluid-filled vesicles that can burst open to sores (wet eczema).
-Burning sensation and itching with strong urge to scratch.
-Infections caused by scratching.
-Blisters by acute worsening of the eczema.
People with eczema often have skin that is highly sensitive to environmental stimuli, especially temperature and weather changes.
Derma Wonders was founded by a mother of five who struggled to find a proper treatment for her now 11 year old son, who has suffered from eczema for years. After many different treatment methods, they have finally found a solution. This is their story.
Steroid cream did help a lot and many people truly need this especially in severe situations. After our son was prescribed a steroid cream, we discovered that one of the side effects was affecting the natural pigment of his skin. We stopped using the steroid cream and his skin continued to have bleached spots for more than two years. Since Eczema comes and goes we knew we did not wanted to keep using steroid cream for an extended time, and needed to find an alternative natural solution.
We tried many lotions on our son, but as soon as we would apply the lotion, his skin would sting so badly that he would be brought to tears. The eczema spots became red and irritated from use of lotions. Lotions may sting and create irritation because of the chemical ingredients found in many over-the-counter medications.
We also discovered that many lotions make statements about their product containing ALL NATURAL ingredients, but upon further investigation we saw that these ALL NATURAL ingredients were included alongside many harmful chemicals.
After using petroleum-based ointments, we saw some positive results, but we did not like the ingredients. These products also have poor absorption, making his skin greasy. After researching petroleum production, as parents we decided we were not going to use these products on our children’s skin.
As a mom I was adamant about finding a better solution to heal our son’s eczema, so I started researching how eczema is being treated all over the world. For two and a half years, we researched and formulated ingredients being used to successfully treat eczema in other parts of the world. Using special herbs and oils blended together with a unique herbal infusion, we discovered a healing balm that made our son’s eczema disappear in four days. This is how HealSticks were born!
Our all natural, preservative-free ingredients: Sweet Almond Oil, Apricot Oil, Beeswax, Stinging Nettle, Chickweed, Horsetail, Witch Hazel Bark, Comfrey, Lavender and Tocopherol t-50 (Natural vitamin E, from Plant source).

Things you can do that may relieve your eczema:
– Prevent dehydration of the skin by showering no longer than five minutes
– Minimize soap, shampoo or bubble bath use
– Use a natural healing solution, like Healsticks
– Wear airy, cotton clothing
– Try not to scratch
**If these measures do not help, contact a Physician.
Your Physician may temporarily prescribe a steroid (corticosteroid) cream or ointment. Personally, when we used a steroid cream on our son it bleached out his skin and left bleach spots on his body for more than two years. We only use steroid medications on a short-term basis when alternative treatments are not working.
