    Male, 44. Cannabis does not need to be smoked in order to be effective in controlling eczema. For several years I have been making a salve out of coconut oil with cannabis as a main ingredient, and people with eczema has reported that it really helps them. don't need to smoke heavily to use cannabis as a medicine: you can take it transdermally, orally, etc... I clicked on this link because the description said something about 'marijuana causing eczema', so I had to put in my two cents against the continuing corporate reefer madness.

    I smoked on a daily basis for a year, then 3 weeks after quitting I got eczema. I don't know if the two are related. If anyone has any helpful info I'm glad to receive it.

    I am 28 and have smoke marijuana daily since I was 15. I recently had to quit, about 4 months ago. I love weed because it helps me cope with the daily stresses of life, I work 2 jobs and go to school full-time. Within the past month I developed eczema on the insides of my arm and chest. I have never had it before in my life. Even with steroid cream it will not go away and continues to itch. I googled this wondering if it was in my head... I think the marijuana took away the stress that otherwise would have resulted in eczema. Does anyone know any facts on this?


    Dawn on Jan, 15, 2013:

    I just realised that once I actually completely quit my eczema broke out like crazy! I can barely type it hurts so badly. I was a heavy smoker for many years, started cutting down and smoking lighter cigarettes. Started champix to quit and once I stopped the champix and quit, BAM! Eczema from hell! I dont know if it was the champix or the quitting smoking but I have quit on champix before and this didnt happen but I also wasnt on it for as long!

    I am a 25 yr old Female and I have had eczema off and on during my life. I had it when I was younger and then I started smoking marijuana at the age of 11. The eczema went away. Around the age of 21 I only social smoked and it wasnt every day or even every month. From 21-25 I have had chronic wide spread eczema. I have tried EVERYTHING! I started smoking again, copious amounts and my eczema has almost all gone away. My theory is marijuana lowers histamine levels and stress. Stress is defenitly a contributing factor of eczema.
