Re: The Itch Scratch Cycle

I know the feeling! I really hate when people tell me to stop scratching. Like, I know I shouldn't scratch but you have NO idea what this feels like so stop giving me directions that don't help me one bit. Plus its the only thing that actually makes me feel momentarily better and all your instructio...

Re: Eczema in the Office

Hi there, So sorry to hear about your work situation. That is just no good having to prove your condition to others. Sorry I really cant tell you how to find that information. I've had a look for it but its so specific it will be very hard to find. Its a real shame they don't just listen to you and ...

Re: Eczema questions

Hi there! The bright side is at least you haven't had it all your life like many others :-D The triggers can be very different for individuals however for most people the cause is genetic, which can be remedied by changing their diets and lifestyles. Nummular dermatitis is an eczema type which gener...

Re: New to eczema, my face is killing me

Hey! Just wondering if this dermatitis is new? Have you ever had it before and have you been using steroids (topical) previously? I was just thinking that if your eczema is worsening after using steroids it sounds like it might be steroid addiction/steroid induced eczema. It's not pretty and it happ...

Re: severe eczema

Hi there, My heart breaks reading your story. It is so similar to mine although when they said I would outgrow my eczema, it just got worse and worse and I developed asthma and terrible allergies. Now I'm in my early 30's and have learnt that just through controlling my diet I can reduce it dramatic...

Re: I feel like a social outcast

Hey Mika, I know how you feel darling. When you feel more eyes on you and you know the reason. When my skin was bad I would get stopped by people in shops or questioned about it by sales staff, with their shocked looks even asking if I had psoriasis! I did work in retail for a while as well and lite...

Re: Cured!

Hi Eugiebear, Hopefully the eczema hasn't returned since you posted this thread. I am just wondering what the recipe is you used? Personally I find most things on my skin actually make the condition worse so I avoid most applications like the plague. But still open to suggestions and perhaps it migh...

Re: cured after 50 years!

Hi there! That is great news! You must be so relieved after living with this condition for so long to now be rid of it, and naturally! It is very unfortunate that doctors have such a limited amount of education in diet and its relation to gut/skin disorders. But that's all it is, they just aren't ed...

Re: Applying topical steroid cream for years - shld i worry

Hi there, Long use of topical steroids is definitely not good for you. I used them for over 30 years and they thinned my skin terribly. My face and other areas are permanently wrinkly now as a result and my hands look 50 years older than they should. Not only does it change the skin but it wreaks ha...
