Weeping, Flaky, Painful Eczema Around Mouth

Weeping, Flaky, Painful Eczema Around Mouth

Please help! My eczema around my mouth hurts and is flaky and weeping. Nothing i do helps. I use Vaseline and it either makes it worse or doesn't help. Any lotion i put on it burns and stings. I’m waiting to get on Dupixent. But i need something that’ll stop the weeking and flaking until i get the Dupixent and it starts working.

Menopause & Eczema

Menopause & Eczema

Are there any women on here who have severe eczema and are going through either peri-menopause or menopause. The skin on the face and body are dry and hot but using a moisturizer only helps a bit? I'm seeing my doctor tomorrow to discuss further treatments because I have people who constantly ask what happened to my face and I'm starting to feel embarrassed about going out in public. I just need to know if others who have gone through this have had the eczema clear up after menopause was… read more

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… read more

Pregnant And Suffering !

Pregnant And Suffering !

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
