Re: 10 year eczema sufferer - CURED?!

Thanks for the sharing and this is such good news! And yes, not just for adults, even for young children, doctors usually recommend them to be outdoors, doing some exercise, fresh air. The main reason is that kids are mostly sensitive to dust mites which is pretty much an indoor irritant. And of cou...

Re: Toctino - anyone tried it? I would like to hear from you!

Hope you get better soon! And instead of plastic wrap, may want to consider wrap like Tubifast (and there're other brands as well) to just keep the moisture in longer and can be washed :) Take care!

Re: Pompholyx

Hi! Sorry to see that your hands are affected.. not sure of natural remedy but I think have to investigate the causes of the flare-up.. cos if the cream works, then flare up, would then be triggered by something.. water, detergents, solvents, friction, nickel? Hope your hands will get better soon!

Re: Finding the cause

I use hypoallergenic detergent but washed it in a baby care cycle that takes about 1.5 hours to 2 hours, with water heated above 60 deg C to kill dust mites. I find that the cycle matters more than the type of detergent.. cos as my child gets older, we opted for normal detergent but keeps to a long ...

Re: Can emollients make skin worse initially?

Don't think should persevere if the cream makes the skin worse.. can go for patch testing at dermatologist to see which ingredient is causing it.. could be something more common eg mineral oil which irritates some people's skin (but otherwise generally an useful ingredient for increased moisture).. ...

Re: My 4 Month Old Baby Has Weeping Eczema (Pics attached)

You can try getting an allergy test and if there's no clue from there (like my child's eczema was triggered by sweat and inherently dry skin with staph bacteria), then mostly, it's keeping cool and moisturizing, with wet wraps or anti-microbial wipes depending on whether the itch looks like it's mor...

Re: Lip Eczema experience

Sorry to hear of misdiagnosis and suffering for so many months.. lip balm without fragrance usually works for my daughter though her case is very mild and likely due to dehydration, which then sometimes becomes skin irritation. Or when her face is really dry, we would use a ceramide moisturizer in l...

Re: Finding the cause

Hi! Allergy testing will be a good place to start; at least it would give you a direction on whether it is dust mite/ food/ mold/ pet/ pollen etc that you need to be aware of. Otherwise, unless it's a very consistent allergic flare-up, it's quite difficult to narrow it down as it could be a mix of e...

Re: Itching after nap and at night, please help!

Hi! It's quite common for kids to be scratching when they have nothing to do - often around naps and at night. My kid was scratching her head for years, just before bedtime. It's quite a bit of trial and error, but you can explore: - check if there is scalp eczema -it's not so obvious, but you can t...

Re: Eczema on tip of penis - very depressed

Sorry to hear of the persistent problem.. has any doctor offered to do a skin swap to just test for different bacteria/fungus to rule these out? Take care!
