Jesus healed me of severe eczema/dermatitis!

Howdy all! 🙂

My name is Sarah (I’m 17 years old) and I will be sharing my testimony of how the Lord Jesus healed me of my heart-breaking, agonizing eczema. For anyone who has or is going through this awful condition, I pray that my testimony encourages you and strengthens you in your faith and walk with God.

Now, for the testimony!

I had been battling with eczema (which is an incredibly itchy, dry, inflammed skin condition) for a little over a year. I had been to countless doctors, who would often prescribe me topical steroids and emollients to soothe the pain. They never addressed the root problem though- but hey, it’s not their fault, they aren’t dermatologists after all. I did actually have a consoltation with a professional & qualified dermatologist, who charged around £200 for a pesky examination.

I felt awful because my mum and dad were spending so much money to try and help me. But nothing seemed to work.

Some days were worse than others, but all in all the disease never went away and never enabled me to enjoy a quiet, peaceful night sleep. Sometimes I would itch so much, I would wake up to finding blood and skin all over my bed covers. Short sleeves were a nono, as I had to hide my raw, diseased arms.

Now you can imagine for a 16-year old girl this was a heavy burden to carry. I went through stages of depression and sometimes prayed to God to take me back home to Him.

Obviously, God did not let me die. He had other plans for me. But I was still sick.

I read on Joyce Meyers website that meditating on the Word of God would heal me. Joyce talked about how Gods Word is medicine and how we don’t need to buy expensive drugs or countless pills to get well.

Wonderful, I thought! So I did just that. I decided to stop using all my creams and medicines. I printed out my healing scriptures, meditated on them as much as I could (sometimes I would lock myself up in my room to get the Word of God into me).

Gods Word sank into my heart and I really began to believe Jesus wanted me well. But my skin wasn’t getting better. It was getting worse. The itching was more intense, the disease began to spread from my arms to my thighs, legs, trunk, stomach, hands and underarms.

Huh?! Why isn’t it working? Foolishly, I just assumed this was God’s way of healing me. It would get worse before it got better I thought.

I thought this way for weeks. I let my body rot and spread the dangerous disease.

It got to the point where I couldn’t get out of bed because I was in so much pain, that I realized something wasn’t right. My mum (who is a christian) was horrified when she saw the state of my body. She decided to support me when I told her I was going cold turkety from the meds, but she never saw or knew the pain I put up with because I covered up well.

How foolish I was to believe that turning away from medicine was the solution! Now I’m not saying God doesn’t heal miraculously- of course He does. But He heals in different ways. So if you’re reading this and if you’re considering throwing away your medicine, please pray and be 100% certain it’s the Lord advising you to do it, and not someone else.

Anyway, back to the testimony. So there I was, feeling ashamed, embarrassed, foolish and useless. I was grieving the Holy Spirit by refusing to really let the Lord help me the way He wanted to.

So I went to the doctors and got my creams back. My doctor (who is also a christian) was incredulously shocked at how bad of a state I was in. My arms literally looked like they had 5 degree burns on them.

It wasn’t til one day when I was thinking about trying out a diet, that God properly spoke to me. “It’s gluten” whispered a gentle voice. Aha!

I began to research the link between gluten and eczema. It turned out what I had was a symptom of celiac disease- a nasty rash called dermatitis herpetiformis. The images shown on the page matched my body completely.

Phew, I thought! So I began to cut gluten out of my diet, trusting in the Lord to do what He could only do. Over time, my skin began to restore itself and the itchiness went away in a matter of days on the gluten-free diet.

I am completely free from that wretched disease- I can sleep without itching! My sheets have no blood stains on them anymore! I don’t have to live in fear anymore. I used to tread night times. I used to want to stay awake all night reading my bible in fear of falling asleep and scratching. I used to beg God to take my disease away. When in reality, God never wanted me to be stricken with sufferring.

God wanted to help me from the beginning: I just never asked Him what the problem was. I thought I knew better. I thought I could find a ‘cure’, when really the cure was in what I ate. It was a natural cure! God didn’t want me to waste my money, He didn’t want me to be alone or in pain. He wanted me to be set free, and He wants you to be set free too!

So there you have it folks- not your average testimony. But then again, God is unpredictable and His strength is made perfect in my weakness! I used to think diseases like eczema were hopeless. I used to believe that I had to go through pain to be a ‘good’ christian to prove my loyalty and love for the Lord. I’m so ashamed telling you all this, but it’s true.

I’m just so thankful that the Lord had mercy on me, and didn’t leave me in my darkest days (even when I was set in my own ways and grieving His Holy Spirit).

May all the glory, honour and praise go to God the Father, Son and Holy Spirit forever!

GOD IS A HEALER! TRUST HIM! ASK HIM FOR GUIDANCE! HE WILL NOT LET YOU CARRY AROUND A HEAVY BURDEN, FOR HIS YOKE IS EASY AND HIS BURDEN IS LIGHT!!!

What do YOU think?

  1. Hi Rachel, Jesus Christ makes you well. By his stripes you are healed and its time to enforce the devils defeated state and stand on God’s word. He desires to make you well for that is his will. I’m 30 years old and have lived with eczema my entire life. Having suffered very badly as a child I have many eczema scars and pigmentation areas till today. God knows I’ve continued to believe that he would heal me and a few months ago He revealed that my eczema is not just one of those things but that it is caused by a demon. He showed me that I through prayer I will tear this demonic disease from my body. I began praying and fasting concerning my eczema and my skin flared up with a new eczema rash (considering I have been rash free for over 15 years). Every night my skin is on fire but I persist. Every prayer, every word is your weapon. Imaginr your weapon as a 5 inch blade that has to cut through a mile of field to get through to the other side. Do not give up. With every prayer and every healing promise confessed, you strike a blow and wound the enemy. Healing and deliverance is a process. In my specific situation, God showed me that I have a spirirt of infirmity that entered through trauma at birth. As I bind that spirit he fights back and afflicts my skin. I’m disturbing his peaceful home (my body) and it doesnt want to leave. But I must stand and will continue to stand until I evict this squatter. I encourage you to surrender your life to Jesus (if you haven’t done so already) and just worship. Psalm 149 says, that your worship and testimony is a powerful weapon that binds up kings and chiefs. These eczema demons will be bound by your worship, by your testimony for our true battle is not with flesh and blood but our battle is spiritual. The blood of Jesus Christ was shed for youoto be an overcomer, to be more than a conqueror amd to live a complete and abundant life. Praise your way through it and you will see how God moves for you.
    God loves you and wants to bring all your desires to fruititon. The plans he has for you are plans of peace for that expected end.

  2. Hi Sarah,
    I have gone through horrible, excruciating and debilitating eczema for the past 2 years. I’ve tried every diet, every cream and supplement you can think of but nothing has helped me.
    I’ve cried out to God for healing many times but only hear silence.
    I barely sleep most nights because of the pain and itching, I wake up in my own blood and ooze with skin everywhere every morning. I am a prisoner in my own body and honestly I am so miserable.
    Sometimes I also cry out to God to take my life because it’s just miserable, where I live the temperature is really hot and I’m forced to wear long sleeves because of my condition.
    I’m always limping around in pain because my legs are all torn up.
    I need your prayer because this condition has turned me away from God instead of toward Him. I don’t know why, but in my pain instead of opening up his word I would rather distract myself in other ways because it’s just too painful to keep praying and asking and have nothing happen.
    I don’t eat gluten or dairy and have a very clean diet. I stopped using the steroid creams because they actually made me worse.
    I don’t know where to turn, I know I need to get back into God’s word and have a relationship with him again but it’s so hard when I’m in pain.

    Please pray for me.
    Thank you & God bless

  3. Hello Sarah, your testimony so wonderfully reinforces that the Lord is a Healer who wants us well and set us free.
    Those who put their full trust in the Lord, will never be put to shame.

    All Glory and Honour to Jehovah Rophe…My healing manifestation is on its way and I will soon be posting mine.

    Thanks for the welcome home to Texas! I’m glad to be back and I’m really hoping for good things. I mostly hope to be able to re-establish my relationship with my little brother his wife, kids. He’s always been my favorite! I really miss having his council and talking to him. He used to be a good friend…he’s funny, smart and…well all sorts of good things I don’t have time to list here. I miss him lots and really miss his little ones. I’m afraid they’re growing up without knowing their Aunt Adele 🙁 I kinda made his life miserable once and I think he wants restoration, but I’m not exactly sure yet, sometimes I get mixed messages. He makes me nervous because he’s been known play both ends and “back channel” gossip with other family members about everything I do and paint me in a bad light. We’ve been estranged for a long time now…it seems like an eternity. He seems to have changed a lot…for the better it think (not that he was bad or anything) and has a side to him I’ve never seen before. He seems to know God and his Word more now or at least much better than I had ever imagined. I should be more optimistic, but it’s probably not going to happen anytime soon, but I can hope! Me moving back might make a difference. It’s all I can do right now, but like you said, “small world huh?”, sometimes you can be geographically close but still so very far away. Please pray that hurts can be healed and trust restored with some of the more stubborn/hurt family members, my husband for one! I think he, my brother ‘can’ make this happen if he were to persist, but gently press and let my husband know he can be trusted and has no motive other than restoration. Sorry I carried on, I probably say too much and should delete all of me personal woes in this public forum. I’m not used to what they allow yet. Anyway, thanks for saying “Howdy”. Though we’re in the same area, around Dallas, I probably won’t be seeing you anytime soon. I’m a little ware of internet strangers, but who knows we might one day meet for a cup of coffee. God bless from home sweet home. Adele

    Sarah, Praise the Lord for your wonderful testimony! I will believe that in due season as you seek Him further on it, should you so choose, He will also heal you of gluten intolerance. I am so proud of you for seeking Him out with all your heart! By all means, remain gluton free unless and until He shows you when and how to address the next step.  Rejoice in His goodness. His mercies endure forever!

  7. on_my_way_home says:

    Sarah, your testimony is truly inspiring. I have the for the first time in my life experienced a similar, but not exact skin condition. In your journey you’ve probably heard of dermographism aka. skin writing. This condition isn’t as debilitating as what you experienced, but sometimes it can make me so miserable I don’t know where to turn. What’s interesting is that it started with me about a year ago, lasted for a few weeks to a month and then dis-appeared! Then about a month ago it returned. If you read about dermographism you will see that this “come and go pattern” is common. Supposedly dermographism is normally seen primarily in young people. I’m middle aged, so to speak, and a year ago was the first time to ever have this problem. Prior to my first episode about a year ago it was never something I had heard of much less experienced.

    Please pray that I can get to the source of this problem and/or the Lord will heal me or both.

    Thanks for your testimony as it’s truly inspiring to know that I might not have to live with for the rest of my life.

    Also… I couldn’t help but laugh at your intro -subject line, “Howdy all!” I see you’re from the UK, but you must originally be from the Southern US! I live near Dallas, Tx and “Howdy all!” is the language I speak!

    God bless you sister,
    Adele
