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. ❤
