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!
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.
I know the feeling. Mine comes & goes. Use aqua o hour & ointment from the derm. Better but returns
I AM BEYOND MISERABLE. Mine started as an inner outer ear infection yet nobody sees anything on the outer ear but I can feel it it was itching irritated and now I've started losing hair in that area. I have read a lot on this and yet they don't listen to me but I know some of it is on the ear full because it is a line going up my ear and at the top of my ear you can literally see it pulling away from there when you clean your ear yet they don't see anything the girl that does my hair… read more
Thank you! My biggest problem is that nobody has diagnosed anything. I'm at a loss on where to even go because I've seen so many supposedly "specialists" who claim there's nothing there. I just… read more
I have been put on four different biologic immune suppressant injections (changes three times) and it seems to making my eczema worse. I am on them because of RA!
Wow , guess I'm not the only one with RA and immune issues
It ain't easy being US!
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?
Most allergist do allergy testing from a simple blood test
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?
Mine began 4 years ago at age 80. Ice, CeraVe and cannabis all helped somewhat. Have been on Dupixent 30 weeks with 80 to 90% decrease in itching.
I have a question regarding armpit Odor Control. What do you use in your armpits that won't irritate the skin but will keep you from getting smelly under there? I do not tolerate scented products because I also suffer with allergies, asthma and multiple chemical sensitivities. Any suggestions?
Triple Antibiotic Ointment
No I have not, but will eventually go to Dermatologist Plastic Surgeon to remove the spots and the scar. Please help if anyone knows of anything. I know I have Stasis Dermatitis and will have to be… read more
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
Do not eat peanuts& other nuts.
Have any body heard of subacute spongiotic dermatitis? I was diagnosed in the early 1990's and was told this will never go away. And it's true. But I found a temporary cure. If you live close to the beach, wade in the water. I don't know if its the salt water or micro organism in the water eatting on the area. Believe me it clear up for about 3 to 4 days.
Catherine56 try this at home. in your tub pour about a cup and half of vinegar, one third box of baking soda and any liquid bubble bath. Sit in the tub for about 15-20 minutes. The water should be… read more
