Re: Cyclosporine oral medication for eczema

I was on Cyclosporin for a year until I had to come off it as are the rules :( It worked for me once the dose had been tweaked. The first couple of days I had an awful headache and felt rather run down but that didn't last long at all. The worst part was when I had to come off it even though it was ...

Re: Cocamidopropyl Betaine

Thanks for the reply Rosy! I never thought of Lush, and I've been online to look at some of their shower products and most of them don't contain it so thank you! I'm going to go in when I'm in town and review them re how fragranced they are etc to see if any of them would be suitable as I also have ...

Cocamidopropyl Betaine

Hello I recently had a patch test and discovered an allergy to Codamidopropyl Betaine, which is a surfactant used in shampoos and shower gels. I've managed to find a shampoo without it in, but haven't found a shower gel yet and soaps tend to dry my skin out. I'm also trying to find out whether my us...

Re: Swollen, sore and weeping left hand

Thanks for your reply Marcie Mom. After reading your reply and taking advice from my Mum I got in touch with my consultants secretary to ask her to pass on a message about how much worse my hand had got in the week since he recommended the biopsies, in case it made him think there was anything else ...

Comments and awareness

I know eczema is nothing to be ashamed of, but when people ask me about it it really gets to me!! I work in a vet practice, and a client pointed to my arm when i had lots of quite big spots rather than rash-y, "ooo, has a cat attacked you?!" Well, no, because that would result in scratches, not spot...

Re: Flare up on face after getting it under control

I had a horrible night when every cream i put on my face stung; I think its just cz my face was so sensitive after one bout of urticaria it rejected everything I put on it apart from Diprobase which it could just about stand. Maybe its similar for you? Kathryn x

Sleep

Since my eczema flared up on the soles of my feet, i've gradually struggled sleeping more each night as i wake up with them itching. I've started putting a fan on aimed at my feet once it starts, but any tips on sleeping better? I feel exhausted every day!!

Re: make up and eczema

Hello I went through a few months when I had to take my make up off with water, which also didn't remove it very well, as my usual make up wipes had begun to sting my skin and I was scared to try anything new. However I recently started using Clinique skin care, and I use their 'Naturally 1Gentle Ey...
