PATCH Allergy Testing

PATCH Allergy Testing

Hi all
I had a Derm appt yesterday and my Derm recommend I do a Patch test to see what could be causing my flair ups around my eyes. He told me that it would be a week long test. My question is. What was your experience with patch testing and how big of a shock was it when you received your results?

A MyEczemaTeam Member said:

I've had patch tests done three times. The first was for environmental allergens and helped me. The last two were both for food allergies and I am a new person staying away from the food allergies… read more

Has Anyone Use Halobetasol Steroid Cream For Long Periods Of Time.

Has Anyone Use Halobetasol Steroid Cream For Long Periods Of Time.

Been dealing with moderate/severe eczema for a almost 2 years now. I'm seeing more outbreaks on my body. Hands & feet, ankles & calves are the worse. I am using a new cream called ByeBye Eczema with all natural ingredients, also use Helobetasol, Vanictram body moisturizer & Hydroxyzine at night to help the itch and sleep. I want to try Dupixent but I don't think it's covered by my insurance. At wits end!

A MyEczemaTeam Member said:

I was just put on Dupixent- and I just got a call from them and they said no cost at this time. I’m on Medicare and ARP.

Food Allergies That Cause Eczema

Food Allergies That Cause Eczema

Does anyone know what is the most common Allergy for Eczema when you have Contact Dermatitis? I have Struggled with this 20 years ago and I have not done anything about it until last year, I have started using things when it comes to dry skin between the fingers and hands, and Fragrance Free Lotion does help to make it smooth and not dry but there has to be more story to that then the Fragrance Issue.

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.

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?

A MyEczemaTeam Member said:

Yes, exactly the same happened to me right after the 2nd Covid vaccine. I do have autoimmune disease.

Does Anyone Have Advise On What I Can Take While Having An Eczema Flare Up While Breastfeeding?

Does Anyone Have Advise On What I Can Take While Having An Eczema Flare Up While Breastfeeding?

I’ve been suffering from a bad flare up since March. Like the worst flare up of my life. I am pretty sure that it is stress induced because of a lot of different factors going on at home. I have had terrible itching all over (which is worse at night), my skin is not absorbing lotion and I’ve had insomnia since it started. I’m probably only getting 3 hours of sleep on a good night. I tried to make an appointment with my dermatologist in June and he couldn’t get me in into 10/29. My GP has put me… read more
