I´d like to know if anyone else has suffered from a severe flare-up of eczema, once experiencing menopause and whether anyone has found anything to deal with it
I am currently bathing twice daily, once with magnesium sulphate with sodium bicarbonate and the second bath is with oatmeal. Apart from that,I´m using tons of cetamocrogol cream and zinc with icthammol ointment.

I´m continuing with Vitamin D3 which keeps my skin smooth and moisturised to some extent. (as an aside, I am taking Vitamin B12 for parasthesia related to a deficiency in this vitamin. I read it is supposed to have anti-inflammatory properties but the supplement has made no difference to the eczema. STRESS is the biggest influencer apart from allergies to hay, grass and who knows what else.
I’m allergic to the preservative methylisothiazolinine or kathos. It has other names as well. What is the best laundry detergent others have found? I have wondered about the little strips I have seen that you can order?

Finally, someone else is going through the same thing! Each month I have horrible breakouts. I just started taking Vit D2 and by chance had to be put on antibiotics for an infection in my arm, noticed much less inflamed skin.
