Constant itch

I have had excema all my life. However the last 10 months has been awful. I have been on steroids antibiotics THE LOT! I still have horrible patches which get me down and effect my relationship and my day to day life. I am constantly itchy! The feeling of the itch moves around my body and I don’t know how to stop scratching!! I use creams constantly and try to stay calm and find a mental place to try stop. But the itch is sometimes just too much! I am at a loss of what to do and the doctors don’t always help me! Any tips on how to stop the itch?! It really is effecting my whole life! And I am so sick of people telling me how sick I look due to my poor skin (the fact people say how rubbish I look reallt gets me down and I can’t help my excema I do everything that I’m told to do minus the scratching!) any tips on how to get rid of this constant itchy feeling that takes over my whole body!

Re: Constant itch

I had severe eczema and what I did was have a fan next to me when I was sleeping, developed a sleeping pattern and put steroid creams on at night. I still have it mild and not very visible but slight scarring. I at one point was handcuffing myself at night to not scratch. Clip ur nails until they bleed, moisturise straight after a shower and make sure it’s not too hot. I feel for u really hope it starts to heal and get better. In my prayers

Re: Constant itch

Hi there, you have to take a holistic approach with Eczema. Here's my approach: Flaxseed oil 2 tablespoons a day, Surcare washing powder, cotton organic sheets washed at 60 degrees, 1.5/2.5 tog duvet, Cotton clothes. Get up - cool bath with Emollients, moisturise straight after.
Food: generally no citric acid and reduced dairy intake - but it is very person-specific. Stay cool - exercise is good, but with plenty of water, I do use man-made fabric as it helps with reducing sweat. Shower after to cool and clean off sweat. I can't go swimming due to chlorine or saltwater. I find cycling is the only sport I can do as it is easier to stay cooler. Keep hydrated, avoid perfume, VOC chemicals and animals if affected. Take Antihistamines. I do use steroid creams on back flare-ups. Alcohol isn't great - so moderation - I find more than 2 pints affects my eczema.
hope this helps.
Christopher.
