allergy shots and eczema
Posted in the Eczema Forum

Hello everyone. I've had eczema probably since I was like 16 yrs old. I am now 20 and its pretty severe" I have like blister like spots all over my arms and back and behind my knees. Its getting pretty stressful. I'm not sure exactly what causes it but, since I was 10 I was on weekly allergy shots for things like ragweed, dust mites, pollen,and etc. I was on this for 5 years. After I stopped I believe my eczema began as a little rash on my elbows. My question is if I got back on my allergy shots would it help my condition at all? Should I bring this up with my doctor? I've been on a pro alkaline diet for past 10 days and it seems like its still the same really, I'm also on primrose oil, flaxseed, zinc, vitamin d and cod liver oil.

possibly, eczema is linked to hayfever, i believe there on the same chromosome, what time of year is your eczema the worst?

I am in the same boat. Been getting alergyshots as a kid, right when i was finishing 5 years of shots i started getting eczema. I feel it was the shots that started this for some reason. However iv been on the shots for about a year now again and i still have the eczema. although its not as bad as it once was.
