Avatar n tn Hello, In most cases of eczema no one treatment will be effective. Medical research shows that the most effective treatment plan for eczema involves using a combination of therapies to treat the skin and making lifestyle changes(prevention of triggers and application of lots of moisturizers) to control flare-ups. For mild-moderate eczema a weak steroid may be used whilst more severe cases require a higher-potency steroid which are available by prescription.
Avatar m tn My wife suffers from eczema and is particularly affecting her palms of hands to the point that her skin is cracking. It is extremely itchy and she has sought medical attention with a dermatologist but the medication prescribed is ineffective. Anyone have this type of condition? Any alternatives?
Avatar n tn 03% can be used with no break, which is important for rashes like eczema that don't take a break themselves. You should check with your doctor about using one of these. Moisturizers and antihistamines are OK, but don't add much. Take care. Dr.
Avatar f tn My 5 y.o. son developed a motor tic when he was 3 y.o. and was diagnosed with eczema as an infant. We eat a balanced diet. I put flaxseed oil in his yogurt. Other than that I have not been giving him supplements. I am wondering if there is any connection of these diagnoses to nutritional deficiencies (vit. C, D, B6). Also, I have considered that there may be a food allergy involved.
Avatar f tn Moisturizing is one of the most important self-care treatments for sufferers of eczema. Keeping the affected area moistened can promote skin healing and relief of symptoms. Avoid soaps and harsh detergents. Use care when selecting lotion, soap, or perfumes to avoid suspected allergens. Have this evaluated by your doctor for proper management. Direct examination is important to determine the diagnosis. Take care and keep us posted.
Avatar n tn I have always struggled with eczema for as long as I can would flare-up a week or so and then clear up and be gone for quite some time...The past couple months my eczema has reached an insane height..I have it really bad (when I say bad, I mean like skin is blistered/open and the color tone is dark - probably from it trying to heal and then being reopened) on my arms (the crease of elbows) and for the first time ever really bad on my neck and right above my chest area...
1044916 tn?1253345563 I have had eczema on my hands come and go through the years. After having my first baby three months ago my lips just recently started to breaking out. They flair up when i eat and take about three days to heal after a break out. No lotions or ointments have helped. My Dr. keep telling me to keep my lips moisturized, but the only way they fully heel is if i let them dry out and keep a mostly liquid diet for a couple days. I am in so much pain when they fist break out.
Avatar n tn Atopiclair is not available in a generic, but you use so little of it that it'll last a good long while. It's a non-steroial facial thing for eczema. Lauren has a time with eczema on her eyelids and cheeks. Our allergy doc prescribed those and they seem to be the best of the lot we've tried. Luckily we've only had to go one round of prednisolone on our dd with the eczema. She didn't tolerate that well at all. And she does have a serious candida problem.
Avatar m tn I am getting so tired of this skin disease and hoping to find a cure or minimize it once and for all. I put on Cetaphil eczema cream daily. Do you guys have any suggestions on this or any creams/pills I should take??
336902 tn?1242009690 Hi, My husband has atopic eczema that has been going on for more than 3 years. It started off with scaling on his hands which spread to all over his body. We have ruled out that it is not contact dermatitis eczema since it occurs all over his body - typical areas include on the back, on the groin, on his butt, thighs, upper arms and calves. Since his eczema started on his late twenties, I know that the chances are that he will have to deal with this for the rest of his life.
Avatar f tn There is a red patch of skin and peeling skin around it. 3. I have had eczema on my eyelids for about 5 years, on and off. Also the cracking of skin on the upper part of my ear, just inside the fold of the ear, which comes and goes for about the same amount of time. It seems to heal up and then I notice a crustiness, which oozes followed by flaking of skin, both in ears and on eyelids at the same time. 4.
118074 tn?1228332603 I used eucerin on my DD's face when she had baby acne and it's also for eczema, her skin was clear the next day (it's greassy) and it also works on really dry skin
Avatar n tn Since Feb. 1999 I have experienced an intensely itchy rash that started on my ankle, moved up and around my right leg to the knee in June, then also my left leg, thighs, stomach, and arms from the elbows down. It is a bumpy red rash, but at the beginning, my skin itched, then the bumps appeared. At its peak, I itched the second I woke up, especially on my arms, but everyone says it is not scabies. I have seen my gp and two dermatologists who has prescribed: E-mycin, Bactroban, Psorcon-E .
Avatar n tn My mother has eczema on her hands and knows a lot about what works for eczema and what doesn’t. She suggested I “clean out” the dead skin with hydrogen peroxide, try not to itch at all (haha, easier said than done) and put diaper cream on the skin. So, now twice a day I soak a small piece of cotton with a 10% hydrogen peroxide solution and let it sit in the ear for as long as I can stand it. The longer you wait, the more crap it’ll ‘cook’ out of your ear.
928985 tn?1254309932 seasonal allergies, eczema induced by dry/cold weather and barometric pressure changes, flushing rosacea, and ocular rosacea. This is what I do to alleviate symptoms. Keep in mind that these are chronic conditions and I can't "make them go away". Rather, I can treat the symptoms of the conditions and try to manage my outbreaks as much as possible. My treatment depends on the day. Thank God yesterday I had a day where I was about 95% symptom-free. That was AMAZING.
Avatar n tn Its really depressing to think that I may have this for life is there anything that I can do to help prevent more bloches arriving? I exercise 4 times a week and have done this for the past 5 years should I give up exercise? Is there any food that I should avoid? Thank you This discussion is related to <a href=''>CAPILLARITIS - HELP!!</a>.

Avatar f tn Hello, I also am experiencing these symptoms and have been for 8 years now. I don't have any answers for anyone and I wish I could say it gets easier but it hasn't for me. Up until a year and a half ago the spaced out / always drunk feeling was really my only symptom. I was then hit with several other equally and more disturbing symptoms.
Avatar f tn In 2005, the FDA DID issue a warning for potential carcinogenic effects for the dermal tacrolimus (used to treat eczema) and recommended that it be used ONLY as a second-line medication and then only intermittently.
Avatar f tn No rash except for eczema but it is easily resolved with cream. I don't know what you consider unreasonable fatigue. Most days I end up having to take a one or two hour nap. I have been tested for all kinds of food allergies along with gluten and lactose (none of which were the issue). They just did a colonoscopy on the 3rd of January looking for microscopic colitis (nothing there). I am at a total loss and highly frustrated that no one has been able to figure out what is going on with me.
Avatar m tn Probiotics Cut Risk for Hepatic Encephalopathy in Half Daniel M. Keller, PhD May 01, 2013 AMSTERDAM, the Netherlands — Probiotics were effective in helping to prevent a first episode of overt hepatic encephalopathy in patients with cirrhosis, compared with patients not receiving probiotics, according to a new study.

Avatar m tn There are several of us on here who have a similar eye complaint: seeing a bright flash, like the afterimage of a flash bulb, when we blink, and sometimes, on upgaze. This is transient symptom for most of us, lasting anywhere from a few days to a few weeks. When the "spot" in our visual field passes over a dark background, the spot appears light. When the spot passes over a light background, it appears dark.
Avatar f tn Hello, I apologize for this novel but I felt I needed to talk to someone about these issues. I have been having a host of issues for a year and a half now with symptoms such as an intermittent ataxic (almost spastic) gait, intermittent vertigo, chronic pain that radiates from the base of my skull to the tips of my fingers and toes that can be mild (like the sensitivity felt when sick) to the inability to have anything touch skin.
Avatar f tn The itching is so bad I've broken blood vessels and causes bruises in spots - and this is not due to skin allergies, hives, dermatitis, eczema, etc. Also, I am a 35 year old caucasian female (I add this for background information to help create a total picture). I also have IBS (my first Gastro caught this about 8 years ago), and since my second pregnancy (I have 3 children), have developed a pattern of urinary tract infections. This is brand-new to me.
883151 tn?1245518109 He has really bad allergies, they've gotten so bad this year that I have to keep him inside for a week for his rash and red eyes to go away. He has problems with his teeth and is getting his second surgery on the second, he has respiratory problems. When he gets a cold it turns into something bad, he gets respiratory infections so easily and has to be on a breathing machine. It's called a nebulizer.
Avatar m tn I have had chronic urticaria and angioedema for 11+ years now. I was on Xolair for a short time years ago before my insurance cut me off. I didn't have any side effects- except injection site discomfort. I was totally clear of all my hives and swelling. I was able to return to all my favorite things without swelling. I also have the delay pressure type. Now I have been steroid dependant again and am really getting tired of this lifestyle.
Avatar m tn Anti-itch drugs, often antihistamine, may reduce the itch during a flare up of eczema, and the reduced scratching in turn reduces damage and irritation to the skin. For mild-moderate eczema a weak steroid may be used (e.g. hydrocortisone or desonide), whilst more severe cases require a higher-potency steroid (e.g. clobetasol propionate, fluocinonide). Eczema can be exacerbated by dryness of the skin. Moisturizing is one of the most important self-care treatments for sufferers of eczema.
