Re: STARTED AS SMALL RASH IN DEC NOW SPREAD ALL OVER

Sorry to hear that, and your skin needs some treatment. My kid had got impetigo before, and she was given oral antibiotics, which helped to reduce/prevent infection (especially needed if your skin feels tender/warm) and reduce bacterial load. That way, moisturizer and steroid creams help ow there's ...

Re: Eczema or Contact Dermatitis?

Sorry to hear that, it feels like an out of the blue, bad experience with the cream. I hope the rashes don't come back, and if it's the dry skin, moisturizing with a cream with ceramides might help. My daughter sometimes has dry and flaky skin on face, and usually works after using a better cream. W...

Re: Cream after cream!

Sorry to hear that and understand your frustration! An allergy test would be helpful, hope you are able to get an appointment soon. If not, googling for common contact allergens and start eliminating from there might help?

Wishing you the best in 2022!

Re: Does your eczema subside when ill?

Interesting and hope the eczema will continue to subside even after recovery! I noticed in my daughter that when an illness increases temperature, she would scratch more but not if it doesn't. If it's just the hands, it's likely reduced exposure to irritants! Maybe that's a clue to start looking at ...

Re: Need cream suggestions

Hi! Sorry to hear of the eczema flare ups. No miracle recommendation though.. we just use Physiogel AI, QV Intensive.. if it's flare ups, would be better to get a skin prick test and figure out the triggers. The other thing to note would be staph bacteria colonization.. both constant triggers & ...

Re: 50 years old suddenly allergic to all face creams

You're welcome! And so glad that you found something that works. For organic products, do take note of the expiration date. I don't use homemade/organic products as my daughter had reaction after using. We're not sure why - but since she takes well to pharma products, we always use the global brands...

Re: 50 years old suddenly allergic to all face creams

Hi there! Sorry to hear about this! I can think of it being contact dermatitis, whereby the same products continually used overtime can lead to allergy.. that's why some skin experts recommend switching up products.. http://eczemablues.com/2015/05/science-of-skincare-products-eczema-supportive-care/...

Re: bad eczema, Help please

thanks for sharing and I hope your 'bad luck' is over :) Yes, mold and dust mites are top allergens. We wash bedsheet weekly with hot water cycle to kill the dust mites. If it's really bad, can consider getting cheap mattress that can be thrown out every six months/year. Hope things keep improving, ...

Re: bad eczema, Help please

Sorry to hear that.. have to see dermatologist. Sometimes it's bacterial overload which requires taking antibiotics to kill the staph bacteria, and then the skin can heal better. Can be many reasons why it suddenly turned worse and may not necessarily be allergy-related. Happened to my daughter. Ecz...

Re: 18 month baby covered in eczema

I totally understand and get everything that you're saying, including the child being happy but you know that the skin is so wrong. I'm not sure how I can help you because if you're under fantastic doctors' care, then you'd already know the basic skincare and tips. Let me know what other questions y...
