Eczema getting worse and affecting my sleep

Postby Rach1234 on Fri Jul 06, 2018 1:11 pm

I've had eczema since I was a baby, I've had years where it was treatable but the past couple of years it's getting worse. I've tried LOTS of creams and lotions, every product makes my skin worse, I've tried going dairy free which has only made a difference on my acne not my eczema. I use soap that's soap free, everything free.
Its summer at the moment and I have to wear long sleeves as my arms are covered in eczema, I'm extremely upset about it and it's affecting my sleep, a 17-year-old shouldn't go through this. If you have any tips or solutions that would help please comment, I would appreciate it. ❤

I swear by aloe Vera drinking gel. Definately worth a try if you haven't already

OMG, thank you for this forum I have had eczema for only 6 mo but it has pretty much stopped me in my tracks. My doctor told me I was at the end of the line, treatment wise! The only thing left is some sort of injectable… side affect; anaphalayctic shock and i would have to carry an epi-pen… the uv lights burned me… I am working with a homeopath and I’ve found a few things that semi-stop the itch! I am also taking high cbd/low thc weed to sleep at night and take care of my everyday health..why or why can’t they make something to suppress this , besides steroids… although who doesn’t love no rash and that feeling of power… yes the little bumps etc return with a vengeance when the drug is stopped.. :?
