Thirteen year old dealing with eczema for seven years.

Thirteen year old dealing with eczema for seven years.

Hello,
I am trying to help my thirteen year old get her eczema under control. Her arms are red and where not red, mostly white patches. We have tried every lotion. This year it spread to her knees. Specialist at Children's laughed at me when I suggested food allergy. Steroids only make the white patches worse. I have tried every natural lotion imaginable and nothing works. White patches are actually more concerning than the red.

Allergies as a cause for Eczema? Does anyone have suggestions for what test to do to test for skin/food allergies?

I have been dealing with blistering Dishydrotic eczema on my hands and atopic dermatitis on my elbows and shoulders for years with flair ups with blisters and itching everywhere. I’m not too sure yet what causes the flair ups. I have heard that food sensitivities or contact allergies could be a cause. So I’m asking for thoughts and suggestions for what test is best and others experiences?
