Adult ezcema all of a sudden

Postby mikeyjwright on Tue Jun 12, 2018 1:51 pm

I’m 33 and last year I suddenly got an ezcema flare up.
Never had one before. My hands are the only part affected and it’s steadily getting worse.
Been several times to the doctors. Started with zero Dern and a low potent steroid. Then they gave me more powerful ones up to the most potent. Very little change. If anything it’s worse now.
Last time I was given protopic to try and no luck. I’ve been strict with the application and even given myself a break for a few days. Nothing seems to work.
The doctor said I just have to live with it.
I find it hard to grip with my hands, using my fingers makes it sore.
Does anyone have any ideas? I’m struggling

Hi! Not sure if it's due to different types of eczema or other forms of rash than what you're treated for... see if this dermatologist offers any help and perhaps see a different doctor? ... -skincare/
