Help! What do I have? What's wrong with me?

Postby jimmy163 on Wed Jan 30, 2019 8:14 pm

So I'm 29 and have never had any skin problems my whole life.

Over the past year I have developed skin problems on my eyelids, nipple, neck and arms. I have tried cold/less showers, moisturising twice a day, steroid creams, E45, different washing powder, different shower stuff etc. It's getting worse.

I have no idea what I have or how to get rid of it. Pictures attached. I think it might be Discoid eczema.

Hi jimmy163

Thank you for your post and the photos. We would always recommend that you get seen by your GP for definite diagnosis. You could also try your local pharmacist if you can't get a GP in the next few days.

Do have a look at our eczema forum and our FREE support programme, mydryskin,

Kind regards
