Dermatitis / Eczema :: Arms, Armpits, Neck, Chest, Back Of My Legs And Wrists

I'm a 20 year old university student struggling to cope with the constant pain and irritation of my eczema. 

I get it all over my arms, armpits, neck, chest, the back of my legs and my wrists. Its scabby, sore and irresistible to scratch at. I have on too many occasions scratched it until i bleed but i really cant help it. I have had severe eczema all my life but in the past two years, it has really started to get me down. I have applied prescribed steroid creams, Hydrocortisone, E45, Doublebase.. showered and bathed in prescribed shower and bath gels and swallowed countless anti-histamine tablets in the hope of them taking away the itch and the urge to scratch.

I'm writing this as i am so fed up, just like the millions of others suffering from eczema out there, and hope that one of you out there can help me, or atleast give me some tips to reduce the irritation.

Currently i am applying Aveeno Skin Relief Moisturising Lotion after i shower. It does reduce the itch and calm my skin, but the redness and dryness returns when the cream is absorbed or whenever i start to sweat. I can't partake in exercise or sporting activities as i am scared, actual fear, of how itchy and sore my whole body becomes.

As i sit here repeatedly itching up and down my arms i'm hoping there is someone out there who can give me some advice, i've had enough of being embarrassed and fed up of my skin.

Prone To Eczema Over My Scalp, Face And In My Ears

Is there a successful treatment for this?

I have heard of laser treatments, but don't know much about this.

Since I was about 11, I have struggled with a weird type of dandruff. Pieces of my scalp flake off and hair falls out when this happens. I can't call this dandruff, as the pieces are bigger than flakes. Does anybody struggle with this? I have never been able to do anything about it.

Dermatitis / Eczema :: Getting Itchy During Exercise

I have full body atopic eczema, i see a dermatologist frequently and i'm now on 200 mg of cyclosporine per day. It has really helped- but i still have a bit on my top lip (not lip lickers) and on my arms, its still a military operation with emollients and things but getting there.

I gave up the gym a while ago as my eczema was so bad but recently i've been wanting to get back into exercise. I've been doing it at home to control the symptoms but now i have bad patches all on the inside of my elbow. Does anyone have any ideas of how i can control this? I wear cotton clothing all the time- if i exercise its in sleeveless tops and shower straight after, emollients etc. my exercises only last for about 30 mins at the moment so its not too intense, can anyone recommend what i can do to stop/control this? i'm thinking of asking my gp for some dermacool to help with the itching and heat but if i want to exercise daily for my health then this is going to get out of control. any ideas?!

Dermatitis / Eczema :: Liquid Paraffin Allergy

I have suffered from atopic dermatitis for 27 years now. I am at my wits end and wanting to see what is causing it, i had a allergy test. This came back with many items, water, yeast, lactose, etc etc, But one thing that came up was liquid paraffin. 

All my creams and shower oils have this in, i have looked high and low but cannot find anything as the market seems to favour this in everything they make for eczema sufferers. 

Im wanting to avoid all the necessaries, SLS, fragrance etc but when i can avoid these, i cannot avoid paraffin in these. Can anyone recommend anything, or have they come across the same issue?

Dermatitis / Eczema :: Red Itchy Rash That Travels Around

I am looking for help with my itchy red rash.  I posted under “Could this be scabies” a couple weeks ago.  I am at my wit’s end.  I went to urgent care about six weeks ago as I could not get in to see my doctor.  He never got out of his chair to look at it closely and told me it was dry skin and gave me a topical cream to put on it.   A week later I went to my doctor.  She looked at it closely and said it did not look like anything contagious and gave me prednisone for ten days.  Everything cleared up and I felt great.  At that time I had rashes under one breast, one on back at a hard to reach area and a couple on my  stomach line.  They all went away.  After being off prednisone for about a week they started coming back in other places.  I saw a dermatologist and he looked at me with a lighted magnifying glass.  He said it was dermatitis and prescribed betamethasone.  The cream makes the spots go away over a period of days and the itching stops or lets up.  But I keep getting new ones.  I now have spots along underwear line that looks like little bites here and there and some larger.  Also have a rash on the back of my neck that is just a lot of redness and itchiness with a couple bumps.  My skin is so sensitive to the touch in those areas.  Interesting thing is they are almost all on one side of my body and rarely go past the middle of the body no matter where they are.  They also bother me during the day when my clothes and seams rub them, but when I go home at night and relax and put sweat pants on and a t-shirt the itching will subside some.  I don’t have itching at night in bed but may wake up with a couple more spots.  My husband has not had any itching at all this whole time.  I have never had skin problems.  Does this sound like dermatitis?  I see the doctor in four weeks and he wants me to not use the cream on three areas so he can biopsy it to confirm dermatitis.

Dermatitis :: Pompholyx Eczema After Athletes Foot

About 5 weeks ago i developed really severe athletes foot - now not ever having athletes foot before this was really shocking to me. The doctor prescribed Canesten HC cream and erythromycin - as i am allergic to penicillin and it is now beginning to feel normal again. The problem is now that i seem to have developed the same as what was on my foot on my right hand. I went back to the doctors and he gave me Fucibet cream and told me to continue to take the erythromycin - but i've only been able to take 2 of these a day rather than the prescribed 4 as they were making the side of my face burn. The condition has just been getting worse and worse and when i went back to the doctors the beginning of the week she told me to keep using the cream, prescribed another lot of erythromycin and some dermal hand wash/moisturizer cream and suggested i wear a cotton glove to bed. The doctors haven't diagnosed it as Pompholyx Eczema but after extensive research on the internet this is what i'm 99% sure it is. I have got a few blisters developing on my other hand and am absolutely terrified it's going to spread like wild-fire. The blisters on my right hand are all over my fingers, palm and beginning to go to the base of my wrist and between my thumb and finger towards the back of my hand. The ones on my palm seem to be merging together and are quite pus filled. My other problem is that after applying the Fucibet cream is does look really red and angry, my fingers seem to swell a bit more and is drawing liquid out. Is this a good thing or is it as i suspect and that is i am allergic to the Fucibet cream?

Eczema On My Hands - Spreading To Arms

I've got eczema on my hands, I've had it for several years now, it started off being a tiny patch, probably no more than 1cm by 1cm. Currently it's over the back of both of my hands and it seems to be spreading to part of my right arm.

I have been to the doctor three times and every time they've said it's eczema and they give me a steroid cream and instruct me to use aqueous cream or an emollient cream throughout the day (everyday). This however doesn't seem to help at all and i've told my doctor and he's said there is nothing more he can do.

Another thing is they're incredibly itchy (though I think I'm doing well not to itch them), they also seem to release this clear liquid (which is really reflective). Is there anything I can do about it?

Cold / Flu :: Numbness In Arms, Legs And Face

Last month i had a very bad bout with the flu. My whole body was paining. It started with my upper legs. Almost like someone gave me charlie horse in my muscles. Then my feet and bottom of my feet started paining. I could not even walk. I wore memory foam slippers on my feet the few times out of bed. My hands had the same painful sensitive sensations as my feet. a few days later my lungs started to hurt and I had something pneumonia. When i started recovering, the pain and numb sensations stayed on the bottom of my feet, my hands legs and arms. Not to mention the weakness that still exist in my limbs. Also, which is confusing and worrying me most now is the numbness on my face and in my mouth, it feels like dental freezing leaving my mouth. It's been at least a month since i recovered from the flu. I have seen my Dr. and have been scheduled for a CT scan. Has anyone had these symptoms before?

Skin :: Eczema Face Flare Up / Patches

I've gotten eczema rashes for the past few years in very small patches on my upper arms and back. While annoying, it was not a big deal. But last week I washed my face and it felt irritated on my forehead. The next day when I looked in the mirror, the entire left side of my forehead had become a rough leathery patch. I was able to get it to go away by softly rubbing away the thickened skin in the shower, but over the course of the week, I have started to develop the same irritated, flaking and thickened skin on my eyelid, below both my eyes, under my bottom lip and on one of my cheeks. I went to the dermatologist who prescribed a ketoconazole and to start washing/moisturizing with cetaphil.

But I'm pretty embarrassed about these patches on my face and the dryness is super uncomfortable so I'm wondering if anyone has any tips on how to get it to go away faster.

Acne :: Is It Eczema? Face Is Dry, Red, Flaky, Itchy

My face is dry, red, flaky, itchy, and peeling but only on the right side. I work in a warehouse and was very sweaty this past week so I wiped my face off with a towel during the day, possibly further irritating and drying out my face. I also have purple pimple like bumps on my face but again, only on the right side.

At Age 42, Hair Loss On Arms And Legs

At age 42, I'm starting to notice some loss of hair on my arms and legs. I'm a male, and of Mediterranean ancestry, so I've been quite hairy in those areas since I was a teen. My hair remains very full and thick on my head, so it seems odd I should be losing it in other places. Is this normal? I don't like the way it looks - like the skin of an old man, all bare and plain.

Weight Gain With Protruding Abdomen And Red Spots On Face And Chest

I am 24 years old, female. For the past year now, I have been noticing significant changes with my body. Up until a year ago, I was always very skinny, flat stomach and clear skin. For a year now, I have been gaining weight (I have gained about 4 kg during this time without changing my diet whatsoever, I weigh 57 kg, my normal weight before was around 53 kg) and my stomach and lower belly have increased in size, resulting in a protruding abdomen. It does not seem to matter if I eat a lot or if I do not eat, my stomach does not flatten down. The amount of exercise I do has been the same since I left school (not a lot). During this time, I have also been developing small red spots all over my face and chest. These spots are slightly itchy sometimes but not most of the time, some I have noticed when i squeeze they have a little water inside. They come and go every day, I use moisturizers which calm the spots down a bit but they always come back again in the space of a few hours. I do not use makeup often so it cannot be allergies to products. Neither the fast weight gain or the spots have been symptoms that I have experienced before. But both developed at the same time which makes me think they are connected. My bowel movement is normal, I go toilet every day or every other day max. I have noticed increased need to pee more often during the day as well as night sometimes, but nothing I would say unusual. I feel no pain in my abdomen. I do suffer from depression and feel fatigue and insomnia often. I have had UTIs, Meningitis and Sinusitis. I have a cold every 2 months exactly which is annoying but no doctor has given help. My mother suffers from thyroid, could this be inherited and showing signs on me now? I have done blood tests a year ago and all was normal. My doctors always say I am healthy and its not likely this will change because i am young... I would really appreciate if someone could help me figure out what is happening with me. Should I be worried or not? And if I should go back to the doctor and ask again?
