Can anyone please advise on new remedies to sooth really bad eczema around the mouth and on the lips. There all red raw, flakey and often weeping and bleeding around the edges. All usual eczema creams I’ve tried have not worked if anything they’ve made it worse (stinging and burning)
Willing to try anything. Thanks

Avoiding triggers

Avoiding triggers

I’ve had eczema my whole life going from doctors to dermatology to hospital. The past couple months it has been Very bad and now I seem to find being around my dog (which ain’t hairy) is maybe making it worse? I’ve had my dog for 5 years and My skin has not flared from this but as I said the past couple months I feel like I’ve just became allergic or something. Could this be possible?

Thirteen year old dealing with eczema for seven years.

Thirteen year old dealing with eczema for seven years.

Hello,
I am trying to help my thirteen year old get her eczema under control. Her arms are red and where not red, mostly white patches. We have tried every lotion. This year it spread to her knees. Specialist at Children's laughed at me when I suggested food allergy. Steroids only make the white patches worse. I have tried every natural lotion imaginable and nothing works. White patches are actually more concerning than the red.
Willing to start over again… read more

Has anyone ever been to a Allergy and Lung specialist for allergy tests to determine if allergies are the triggers to your Eczema?

Has anyone ever been to a Allergy and Lung specialist for allergy tests to determine if allergies are the triggers to your Eczema?

I've been told that triggers can be a result of allergies and that proper diagnosis is key to helping to control flare-ups.
What I've found out is that these tests are done in a series of racks ( rows of samples, downside your back ). Sets of samples done per sessions, this seems to be very painful. I'm NOT a fan of needles, is there another way to determine what things your allergic… read more

Can I reverse thickened skin and scarring from eczema?

Can I reverse thickened skin and scarring from eczema?

Hello, I'm a long time eczema sufferer and am getting it in check for the first time in many years, I'm 23 now. I learned way to late about a lot of the ways I could help it and from periods where I had a hard time not scratching I now have a lot of areas on my body where the lines in my skin are unnaturally noticeable and exaggerated. Many of these areas seem to already be healed but this problem has persisted and it's caused me a lot of psychological strife… read more

What foods to eat when you have ezcema?

What foods to eat when you have ezcema?

I have been reading a lot lately about foods related to ezcema. And my ezcema has been a complete monster lately!

Any ideas on what I should put on my grocery list?

Thanks!

It depends on the person. You would probably need to be allergy tested to determine what you are allergic to.

What would be the best cream/remedy for my type?

I've included a picture, although I dont know why type of eczema. I get the rash around my belly, back, my upper inside of my arms and buttock. The itching drives me nuts, discoloration of my skin tone, and scars. I've been dealing with it for 3+ plus years and have only recently been told what it was(not for lack of trying ro find out in past).
