Ask Dr. Oz Season 2: Post Op #25


Audience member Denise has two children with really bad eczema (a chronic skin disorder that involves scaly and itchy rashes). Denise has tried everything to help alleviate the problem, but nothing works. She asks Dr. Oz what to do.

Dr. Oz finds out from Denise that her children have allergies, and Dr. Oz asks her to look beyond the skin to the potential underlying issue(s).

Dr. Oz recommends the kids take omega 3’s and use lotion before bedtime. Dr. Oz also recommends wrapping the affected/lotion covered area with plastic over night.

The main concern that Dr. Oz wants Denise to focus on is identifying possible eczema causes like mold in the house, and certain types of foods her children are eating.
Audience member Debbie tells Dr. Oz that she sometimes has extreme tightness in her head, ears, and nose. Debbie also hears popping in her head sometimes and asks Dr. Oz what it is.

Dr. Oz responds that there could be many factors at play here which might all be related to each other.

Dr. Oz further states that Denise’s issues could derive from a muscular skeletal problem, or it could possibly a blood flow issue. Dr. Oz stresses that we need to become better historians of our own bodies, asking ourselves what makes us feel bad, what makes it better, what makes it all go away, what times do I feel this way…? Etc. The more answers we get to these questions, the more clues we have about our ailments.
Denise mentioned that she often felt better at the times she donated blood, to which Dr. Oz said this might indeed be a clue to the resolve of her problems.
