Daily Quercetin

My eczema condition, with which I have been dealing for over twenty years, has improved rather significantly over the past three months.  In addition to the occasional use of topical medications and daily use of Eucerin Moisturizer Creme, I started a daily regimen of quercetin (1,000 mg per day), a flavonoid which is a natural antihistamine.  Quercetin is distributed by Bluebonnet Nutrition Corporation and probably by other manufacturers, and it is available without prescription at health food stores.  A discussion about quercetin for eczema patients is found in Encyclopedia of Natural Foods, authored by Michael Murray, N.D., and Joseph Pizzorno, N.D.
