Flesh-eating eczema miraculously cured by Chinese medicine


(NaturalNews) It seems rather unlikely given all the fraud in Chinese medicine, but in this case, one herbal remedy has been nothing short of miraculous.

As reported by the UK's Daily Mail, a young boy suffering from severe eczema that progressed into a flesh-eating infection, making him look "like a burn victim," has found relief thanks to a medicine from China.

The young boy, Owen Richards, developed his severe skin condition as a baby, but it transformed into a potentially deadly infection via the herpes virus, leaving the seven-year-old's body covered in bloody, weeping sores that put him a great deal of pain and discomfort.

Cath and Andrew Richards, little Owen's parents, tried a number of steroid and emollient creams, but nothing worked. They had little choice but to watch helplessly as their son's condition got worse and worse.

Eventually Owen had to be hospitalized with a rare infection, that has in some cases killed its victims, called eczema herpeticum. But then the couple found something that could alleviate his painful, agonizing symptoms, the paper noted – an herbal remedy.

After drinking the mixture twice a day for some time now, his appearance and symptoms appear to have completely cleared up, thereby transforming his life.

'A living hell'

The boy first developed eczema when he was only six weeks of age. It left his skin sore and flaky, and the condition stuck with him and worsened as he grew. As you can imagine, if you have kids of your own, such a painful condition was very traumatic for Owen and his family. His parents said he suffered "extreme fits" of screaming, crying and scratching, and he was not able to learn how to go to the toilet. He could not get dressed by himself and could not lay in bed without crying from all the pain.

Naturally, Owen's condition and reaction to it was no picnic for mom and dad, either. Cath Richards told the Daily Mail it was very difficult to watch her son in so much pain and each day was "torture."

"It started as just a bit of redness on Owen's cheek when he was six weeks old, but it quickly spread to the back of his legs and tummy," she said.

By the time he turned four, she said, he was old enough to begin school but couldn't walk or even stand without being in excruciating pain.

"Owen would have extreme fits of screaming and scratching and everywhere he sat he would leave a deposit of dead skin and blood," Cath Richards said. She also said he was never able to sleep through the night.

"As a parent," she noted, "you just feel completely helpless," adding that it was distressing on both parents and their child. Sometimes she said they would try to comfort Owen but that even a hug would be too painful because his skin was so very sore.

"It was a living hell," she said, as the Daily Mail quoted.

Complete reversal

When the boy developed eczema herpeticum, he became very ill and had to be given IV medications. But nothing helped, the parents said. The cold-sore virus, they learned, could be so severe it could eventually cause their son to go blind – that is, if it didn't kill him first.

Cath Richards decided to take a year off from work and research her son's condition. After extensive research she contacted Shulan Tang, a professor of Chinese medicine based in Manchester. He started Owen on herbal treatments. That was in May of 2014.

Within four months of drinking an herbal tea mixture twice daily, she said Owen's improvement was so pronounced his skin mostly cleared and he could run and play. He finally was able to start school.

The mixture was created and regularly adjusted to Owen's needs, but in included herbs like bloodwort root, white mulberry leaf, Chinese anemone root and Imperata grass.

"The concoction was designed to release the heat from Owen's body, soothe his itching, fight toxins, promote skin growth and clear his airways," the Daily Mail reported.
