My skin had to be completely clear before I was put on the Chinese herbal tea. After taking the steroids and before taking the tea I had to take four packets of Chinese herbal granules a day in order to see if I was suited to the treatment, which I was. My skin cleared completely and I started taking the tea. The eczema started to come back in a few patches but it was found that I wasn’t on the right dose. I was taking less than I should. The dose was put up to four tea bags. Again it started to come back all over my body but it was just dry patches. The rawness was on my arms.
