Is Eczema Really Caused By Internal Allergins Or Toxins And A Warning Sign?

Is Eczema Really Caused By Internal Allergins Or Toxins And A Warning Sign?

The more I read and experience and listen (break outs where people sweat), the more I'm starting to believe it truly is toxins trying to get out. Could be internal, environmental. A warning sign of sorts. I know many push their product to remedy it and the National Institute of Health (MD's) don't really talk or acknowledge it and skeptics say it's because they don't want a cure. I'm trying to find studies and facts on it rather than threats that it will be something worse if it's not addressed… read more

Exercise And Topical Dermatitis. How Exercise Manifests On Your Breakouts? Reduction In Symptoms Or Increase?

Are There Others Here With Eczema On The Scalp?

Are There Others Here With Eczema On The Scalp?

I've had eczema on my scalp now for about 6 months. I've tried Cibinqo and had digestive problems with it. Dr first put me on prednisone which worked until I finished the pred. Now I'm on allegra, zyrtec and singular daily. I also use Ketoconazole medicated prescription shampoo. I have also tried sunflower oil and apple cider vinegar on my scalp after shampooing. He wants to try Dupixent but I am really not sure my condition is bad enough to warrant that. Any thoughts or home remedies?
