A big rant!!

Hi, Ive had eczema since 2, I am now 30. And I really do feel your pain, but some of the other posts on here are right. What we need to remember as sufferers is that eczema and psoriasis are quite common. Most people know at least one person who has the condition. Throughout my teenage years I remem...

Re: PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE HEEELLP!!!!

Hey, Very good points made by anna, I would stay out of the sun, obviously you cannot completely stay out of it.
