Cheryl Halliburton, 27, says inhaling CBD oil through a vape pen has been a ‘miracle cure’ for her severe eczema. Cheryl has suffered with eczema flare-ups on her face and neck every few days for the last four years, ever since becoming pregnant with her daughter Alexis, now three. She was regularly left with red, sore skin that cracked open and had weeping wounds.
The pain and embarrassment caused by the condition made Cheryl unable to leave the house. ‘It really began when I fell pregnant with Alexis when I was around 23 years old,’ says Cheryl. ‘It started on my back and cleared up after a course of steroids but straight away it flared up on my face and neck and has been constant ever since. ‘It would flare up every couple of days depending on what I was eating and it would be an uncontrollable itch. No cream I put on it would soothe it, in fact, it would often make it worse. ‘I would feel like I wanted to rip my skin off.
