Hi. Has anyone had to deal with the very thick, hard, cracking and painful skin on the feet, particularly around the heels & toes?

I have this very dry, hard, cracking build-up of skin around the rim of my heels & toenails. It's ugly, painful and very difficult to deal with. It even limits how far I can walk. Does anyone have this, and do you have any tips or tricks to help this peel off & get rid of it?

For my daughter

For my daughter

My daughter has bad flares up. But they have gotten worse in the past week. What kind of creams do you use to help the irritation. Sometimes it gets so bad that she cant sleep and wakes up hollering. Also her lymph nodes have swollen up behind her ear. I'm starting to think its more than just eczema.

Is there anyone that has flareups around their mouth?

Is there anyone that has flareups around their mouth?

I just want to know that im not alone. Most of ny flare ups are in my hands or on or around my mouth. And my cheeks. My flare ups are the weepy blisters and scaly dryness. Its the most painful/annoying thing ever! When I have flare ups on my face I just hide. And when i cant hide. I feel like everyone is staring or judging me. What sort of things do you use to calm these flare ups?

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.
Willing to start over again… read more

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?

I had a patch test done for chemicals (through a dermatologist) and a skin prick test for food (through an allergist)
