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

I just need to know if others who have gone through this have had the eczema clear up after menopause was over… read more
