I have it really bad on my arms and my sister makes fun of me, I told my mom but she doesn't care. I asked my mom to take me to the dermatologist because I haven't been on a ointment or any medicatiOn for years. It's getting worse I keep itching at nIght and wake up in blood.(sometimes) I don't see the point at life no One cares and there is no hope for my eczema. I'm suck of seeing everyone wearIng short sleeves and shorts and I wear winter clothes hiding my skIn. Thanks for reading.

Oh no! Having eczema can be very frustrating. Be strong - you can help your skin feel better and help the itching stop. It's a good thing you're going to try going to a dermatologist again to get the proper treatment recommendations for your condition. Have you tried Eucerin? I've done some work with their team and have found their Calming Creme very effective for my itchy, dry skin. Hope your skin clears up soon!

Hey i've had eczema since i was born so thats 16 years now. I know what works and what doesn't and ive tried everything and researched everything. I am spreading this article all around the internet to help people with eczema because i am fed up with it and i want to help give others relief from eczema.

Listen to me. nothing cures eczema. doctors can prescribe you something but it doesn't work. it clears it up yes but it doesn't stop it from coming back. and eventually you get sick of going to the doctor. I am writing this because i am fed up with eczema i'd literally do anything for it to go away but that is impossible but it is possible to keep the skin in a good state which shows no signs of eczema.

Ive learnt about something called the itching cycle which means that every time you scratch your eczema to relieve the itching it leads to even more and intense itching. So make sure you don't scratch!!! i can safely say i haven't scratched my eczema for about 3 to 4 years. if you don't itch for a month or a few, you won't feel the need to scratch your skin which leaves it uniritated and looks as if you never had eczema in the first place.

If you did scratch your eczema vigorously at one stage of your life it takes many months for it to go away i would say about 6 months for mine to go away when i did and stopped scratching.

You also need motivation! My motivation was to have a healthy skin appearance because interact with girls. Eczema isn't attractive at all and when i had it in little amounts everyone used to notice wherever you have it. My peers also gave me motivation because i didn't want to have disgusting skin infront of my friends as it would make me feel self conscious. SO DON"T ITCH or it will lead to that^

Not itching your skin does help but you also need to apply sorbelene cream every day in the morning and after a shower. I have a large dispenser of sorbelene cream which i use everyday and lasts me about 6 months Eczema is very dry skin and sorbelene cream without perfume! helps relieve the skin. I was sceptical at first about this but ive been doing it for 6 years now and i am happy with the state im in.

Also you must apply sorbelene cream before sport activites. IF i didn't apply sweat or chlroine usually react with the eczema and cause it to flare. I find that applying sorbelene cream acts as a barrier and i was stoked when i learnt that i could go swimming without the fear of chlroine upsetting my eczema.

I also find a healthy diet is esential. Whenever i eat junk food i get inflamed in all spots. It maybe due to the stress because i don't want o get pimples either but i think my extremely health diet has helped. PLUS i drink alot of water whenever i can which is utmostly essential!!! Drinking water helps stop your skin becoming dry and giving you a flare up. My diet consists of 2 serves of fruit and 5 veges a day. Plus all homemade food mother the right amount of nutrition and i haven't eaten any junk food what so ever for about 3 years-unbelievable i know but true because i am motivated. I know that sounds hard but it gets easier and if you dont for awhile you dont even feel like you want it and you just find it repulsive because you've been eating so healthy.

I have eczema because of my genes and i have hope that when i finish puberty the ezcema will go away as my doctor told me that is a common case and that only my mum had it when she was little up to about 19 years of age and plenty of other people have given me insight about this too. I have had ezcema in many places on my body- both on top of my wrists and on top of my hands, all around my elbows and a bit on my inner bicep, on the left of my neck, down the right side of my chin from ear to bottom of my chin, and on my eyelids and i used to have on the back of my legs.

I hope, actually i know this article i have written will help you reduce the inflamation of eczema and make your skin as if you were never cursed with eczema :)
