Thirteen year old dealing with eczema for seven years.

Thirteen year old dealing with eczema for seven years.

Hello,
I am trying to help my thirteen year old get her eczema under control. Her arms are red and where not red, mostly white patches. We have tried every lotion. This year it spread to her knees. Specialist at Children's laughed at me when I suggested food allergy. Steroids only make the white patches worse. I have tried every natural lotion imaginable and nothing works. White patches are actually more concerning than the red.

Does anyone else have eczema that reacts to sun?

Does anyone else have eczema that reacts to sun?

How do you deal with this? I use really high SPF sunscreen and that helps a bit but finding it not as effective now as my skin still flares up, especially on my face and neck into itchy, red, cracked and weepy patches.
So uncomfortable! Makes summers really tough.

Allergies as a cause for Eczema? Does anyone have suggestions for what test to do to test for skin/food allergies?

Allergies as a cause for Eczema? Does anyone have suggestions for what test to do to test for skin/food allergies?

I have been dealing with blistering Dishydrotic eczema on my hands and atopic dermatitis on my elbows and shoulders for years with flair ups with blisters and itching everywhere. I’m not too sure yet what causes the flair ups. I have heard that food sensitivities or contact allergies could be a cause. So I’m asking for thoughts and suggestions for what test is best and others experiences?

Has anyone ever been to a Allergy and Lung specialist for allergy tests to determine if allergies are the triggers to your Eczema?

Has anyone ever been to a Allergy and Lung specialist for allergy tests to determine if allergies are the triggers to your Eczema?

I've been told that triggers can be a result of allergies and that proper diagnosis is key to helping to control flare-ups.
What I've found out is that these tests are done in a series of racks ( rows of samples, downside your back ). Sets of samples done per sessions, this seems to be very painful. I'm NOT a fan of needles, is there another way to determine what things your allergic… read more

It's not that bad. You will learn what your triggers are and if you have a reaction they administer an antedote immediately. The needles are very tiny… read more
