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?

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 as of late. I actually have pretty… read more

I Have Two Large Patches Of Hardened Red Bumpy Skin On My Legs, One Patch Per Leg. What Medicine Would Help?

I used to have eczema in my arms and elbow area, but it migrated to my legs. I also have other auto immune disorders namely type 2 diabetes and a basically dead thyroid. I take Metformin and Levothyroxine for both. I have had eczema my entire life and besides the genetic disposition for it, what kind of things cause itchy skin flare ups? Food? Normal household products?
Looking for solutions.

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). Up until recently no doctor was able to tell me what kind of rash. Looking for the absolutely best cream solution out there.
