    I just developed eczema a week ago and went to see a dermatologist.The doctor gave me ceterizine and nutraplus lotion.I want to experiment with herbal approach like boiling guava leaves,let it cool and with a small cotton ball rub it around my itchy,red skin.would it be effective then? I heard old barrio folks stories regarding this approach and its really effective according to them.In fact,traditional”tuli”(circumcission) the “manunuli”use guava leaves for fast healing.During the procedure,they start chewing the leaves and place it around the wound right after the circumcission.
