I have this all over my face now I'm getting red blotches on my arms I'm not sure what that is I have used all kinds of prescription medications and nothing gets rid of it. My husband says that I should not drink alcohol because I will never get rid of this. Is this true? My face really hurts I have tried budesonide cream 2.5% hydrocortisone and now the doctor gave me tacrolimus but this cream causes cancer
We use aquaphor multiple times a day, we use soap that is not scented, and hydrocortisone cream twice a day for two weeks at a time.
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
I have really wanted a tattoo for a LONG time. I have researched getting one an talked to my dermatologist about getting one. She basically told me to stay away from red ink 100% and that she haven’t seen a lot of patients in regards to grey or black ink tattoos. She said that everyone reacts differently, so she couldn’t confirm if I was going to react or not and that the choice to get one was up to me.
Through everything I have rea online and have talked to… read more

My patches of eczema are super red especially on my face. I'm allergic to almonds and coconut. Does anybody have any suggestions on how to deal with the redness?
Since I've gotten pregnant my treatment has just gotten horrific. I can't get a dermatology appointment in my home town and have to travel miles to a hospital to see dermatologist and the appointments are often 6 weeks up to 12 weeks apart. So if a treatment isn't working great then I have to wait 6+ weeks to go back to review. I used to be on cyclosporine and it pretty much cleared up my skin but now I can't have it. I have to wait 3 months and they won't put me back on it till the babys… read more
What are you guys opinion in regards of a 2 month old baby with seborrhoeic dermatitis? She gets the flare up around her eyes, behind her ears and folds of her little arms. The pediatrician said that’s normal for her but the poor baby is so irritable !!! my daughter in law is using aveeno lotion and aveeno 1% hydrocortisone. Is there any other natural product she can use?
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… read more
