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 am baffled as to the cause of this. Has anyone else… read more

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… read more
