What kind of eczema is this and what can I do?

I have had eczema se eral years ago (ears, scalp, etc.),and it has been reappeared in the last three years. Since two years ago it has become intense (near the nose, etc.) and I visited a dermatologist who prescribed common medications including betamethasone, which worked, but the eczema reappeared quickly in other areas, and the doctor prescribed other creams, and also Ebetrex (methotrexate). Last time he prescribed Daivobet and betamethasone, each for certain areas, although it also worked to some extent, but the eczema is still there and it is around a year that I use betamethasone (topical losion) time to time to control it a bit.

The eczema especially intensifies when I consume certain nuts and pepper. Does it mean that this is an allergic eczema, and I should find and avoid the actual allergens instead of using medications? I don't like the fact that I have had used medications in long-term.

Hi there, sorry to hear of the eczema? Have you taken an allergy test? And if you're concerned with nuts causing it, maybe should find a clinic within a hospital that conducts food challenge? Hope you'd find the trigger soon and agree that you shouldn't be on so many types of prescribed ointment without making an effort to find the trigger.. change doctor?

Take care,
Mei

I suffered 2 years of red, itchy, cracky skin in my legs.. i try lots of ointment, oil, and lotion to moisture my skin and even went to doctor just ger rid of my itchy red skin but nothings work. I feel like im losing hope, i really want to stop this itchy feeling and its not nice to see me like this. Until i discovered vegetablle drink. The first 5 most helpfull vegetable that can help and fight deceases. I drink it with warm water 2x a day and drink a lot of water. This juice is delicius i really love the taste. Drinking in 2 months plus water therapy my itchy red cracky skin were gone. This vegetales drinks is really amazing, its not only cure it can prevent you from other sickness. Sometimes we are just luck of vitamins and minerals in our body to fight deceases! Try vegetable drinks! Theres no harm on trying! Its just vegetable drink! Maybe this works for you.
