Eczema and hormones?

Eczema and hormones?

I started with eczema when I hit puberty. It's always worse when I'm on my period. The strange thing though, while I was pregnant and during expressing breast milk, my skin was completely clear! Wasn't even dry!
I was wondering if anyone else has had any links between hormones and skin condition?

Yep! I've had eczema as long as I can remember but when I hit puberty it got really bad....and like you, when I have my period it's so much worse (definitely itchier)! I also found when I first starting taking the pill my skin cleared up completely.... unfortunately that side affect seems to have stopped now tho.
