I Have Two Large Patches Of Hardened Red Bumpy Skin On My Legs, One Patch Per Leg. What Medicine Would Help?

I Have Two Large Patches Of Hardened Red Bumpy Skin On My Legs, One Patch Per Leg. What Medicine Would Help?

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.

Anyone Else Have Generalized Skin Discomfort ?

Anyone Else Have Generalized Skin Discomfort ?

When I have eczema flares my skin (not just the areas with a rash), becomes really uncomfortable, like a pins and needles, raw sensation, where even wearing the softest clothing is uncomfortable. 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.

Can a person get eczema between tailbone and do you think it can be caused by gluten? I’ve diagnosed with eczema but Dr’s never give really the reason why a person gets it but I know it’s hereditary.

Nails, Inside Nose, Gums Between Teeth, Eyes, Inner Eyelid, Tongue

Has Anyone Found That Seams On Clothes Bother Your Skin?

Has Anyone Found That Seams On Clothes Bother Your Skin?

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.

My skin cracks, flakes, and is painful to touch, sometimes bleeds. I can only have cotton close to my skin. I am miserable. The only time I don't have these problems is when I am someplace with high humidity. Help!!!

I use Palmers Cocoa Butter too both in cream and lotion form. It helps with hands and legs. I use a little petroleum jelly on eczema near my eye area.

Is This Eczema?

Is This Eczema?

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?

A MyEczemaTeam Member said:

Use clobetasol(steroid ointment ) on the pTches immediately twice a day x 2 weeks. You do not want it to get worse.
