What treatment is effective for eczema on the scalp?

Its starter nearly 2 years ago and at first it wad due to dandruff but then i started developing sores and scabs on my scalp due to my itching. I’ve tried to be discreet about it as possible especially in public and i sometimes feel a bit embarress cuz i don’t want others to think i got lice. It drives me crazy at night most of the time. I’m finally plucking up the courage to ask for help or any advice. Can somone help me?

Auto immune

Has anyone been told their eczema may be an autoimmune reaction? I recently have by my dermatologist that my flare ups could be due to my white blood cells attacking my hand skin

Yes, I was told the same thing. And was given a diet to increase my red blood cell count.

Avoiding triggers

I’ve had eczema my whole life going from doctors to dermatology to hospital. The past couple months it has been Very bad and now I seem to find being around my dog (which ain’t hairy) is maybe making it worse? I’ve had my dog for 5 years and My skin has not flared from this but as I said the past couple months I feel like I’ve just became allergic or something. Could this be possible?

posted 3 months ago by A MyEczemaTeam User

Yes I have allergies to many things that never used to effect me. And it does seem like "all of a sudden" for no particular reason...

Toddler on antihistamine, anyone else?

My toddler has been on antihistamine for over a year now, has anyone been on antihistamine and had withdrawel symptoms after taking it away? Are they long term complications? Does it affect them growing up?

posted 3 months ago by A MyEczemaTeam User

Hi, to my knowledge, antihistamines won’t result in withdrawel symptoms, as there’s no addictive component. Perhaps only psychological reliance.
