Just as an update to this to help others in this situation i have doubled my milk thistle from 3 to 6 tablets a day and that has made it manageable- its still dry and sore but i can move my fingers without it hurting like hell.
Also i recommend gloves for washing up and a good a cream soap substitute to wash hands with like aueous cream. [NOTE: this cream is no longer recommended as a moisturiser for eczema sufferers because it contains SLS but can be used as a soap substitute still].
I hope there are no detrimental side effects to high doses of milk thistle?
I have also purchased biotin but i’m a little wary to start it if it causes die-off.
Advise would be appreciated.
