I've been using the coconut oil that we cook with and it helps a little. What other kinds of coconut oil can be recommended?

At BJs I can get a big jar for a reasonable price. It's pure but I'm wondering what products are available for eczema that contain coconut and that folks have had success with.

Has anyone had to reschedule surgery due to an eczema outbreak?

Has anyone had to reschedule surgery due to an eczema outbreak?

I remember when I had knee surgery several years ago, I had to wash with a special soap and was cautioned about having surgery with a cut or infection. Since my other knee is squawking and will need replacing soon, I'm wondering if eczema would be an issue here.

Weeping, flaky, painful eczema around mouth

Weeping, flaky, painful eczema around mouth

Please help! My eczema around my mouth hurts and is flaky and weeping. Nothing i do helps. I use Vaseline and it either makes it worse or doesn't help. Any lotion i put on it burns and stings. I’m waiting to get on Dupixent. But i need something that’ll stop the weeking and flaking until i get the Dupixent and it starts working.

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?

I avoid gluten and dairy for autoimmune issues in general. It has REALLY helped with my asthma, but skin stuff seems to be the most stubborn.
