I used to have eczema in my arms and elbow area, but it migrated to my legs. I also have other auto immune disorders namely type 2 diabetes and a basically dead thyroid. I take Metformin and Levothyroxine for both. I have had eczema my entire life and besides the genetic disposition for it, what kind of things cause itchy skin flare ups? Food? Normal household products?
Looking for solutions.
My 3 yr son was just diagnosed. It seems to be mostly in the crease of his arm/elbows and his stomach. I have no idea about eczema at all. He doesn’t want me to do anything to treat it but I know it would help.

It’s almost like there’s a layer of sand between my clothing and my skin. I expect to have pain and itching in the areas with an active rash, but not all over. Is this typical with eczema? I keep forgetting to ask my Derm.

I find that big seams in the toes of socks and under arm of tshirts are aggravating my skin. Making it itchy and red. Just wondering if this is eczema related or more of a sensory issue.
Has anyone been prescribed dovonex/calcipotriene for atopic dermatitis? This is a psoriasis treatment my doctor wants me to try but I have been having a hard time finding articles/research papersI just did a round of steroids that left me with my rash doubling or tripling in size and at the worst severity. It is so itchy and inflamed that it just hurts more than anything!

I have dishydrotic eczema on my hands and I have finally gotten it under control. However, the other day I noticed a bright red patch on my hip. I have never had eczema on my lower body. Should I be concerned?
