I Have Never Had An An Issue With My Skin Until Now, At The Age Of 67.

I Have Never Had An An Issue With My Skin Until Now, At The Age Of 67.

It started with a few red, raised, itchy spots on my lower legs and within 2 months it was widespread - both legs, thighs, arms, chest, back. No sleep due to the severe itching at night. After several visits to my dermatologist and allergist/immunologist, lots of blood tests and allergy testing, I have been diagnosed with atopic dermatitis or eczema. No allergies, no new products. I am baffled as to the cause of this. Has anyone else experienced such a sudden onset like this?

Menopause & Eczema

Menopause & Eczema

Are there any women on here who have severe eczema and are going through either peri-menopause or menopause. The skin on the face and body are dry and hot but using a moisturizer only helps a bit? I'm seeing my doctor tomorrow to discuss further treatments because I have people who constantly ask what happened to my face and I'm starting to feel embarrassed about going out in public. I just need to know if others who have gone through this have had the eczema clear up after menopause was over… read more

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

Recently diagnosed with pretty severe eczema. I have it head to toe - literally.

I have researched, but can't find any info about what to do concerning the eczema that has invaded my fingernails and toenails, both under them, inside them, and on top of them, as well as on the cuticles and the skin on either side of the nails.

I also have eczema up my nose and want to know how to deal with that.

To make it more exciting, at the corners of my eyes by the tear ducts and on the inner eyelid, I… read more

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.

If I take Aleve or Ibuprofen those will really cause me awful body itching.
