So it's 2013 and I was wondering if anyone had any new tricks to get rid of eczema? I've had it for about 3 years and treat it w steroid creams...reluctantly.. I really just want the eczema to go away. It pops up on the crease of my arms, always on one wrist and in that area, my neck, and my underarms/.(neck and underarms seem to only happen when I'm hot, unfortunately I live in ga so it's almost always hot D:) But recently my main problem w eczema is that about 8 months ago it decided to take over my fingers... This is so painful and different than what's on my wrist and other parts. It starts w bumps and then the skin starts peeling away and getting really crusty and oozes. It goes away when I use the cream but always comes back within about 2-3 wks.. Even when it's gone now my fingers look raw all the time and my hands look old.. I'm 25 and now my fingers look like they belong to an 80 year old. Also this month the eczema popped up on the top of my hands. Very very itchy and some spots have white puss in them. I normally can just ignore the other areas of eczema but the hands I can't, I am in nursing school and work part time as customer service so I am always typing or either washing my hands. I'm trying an all water diet at the moment to see f that will help. I recently tried the oatmeal aveeno but the eczema on the hands just flared up. Anytime I use lotion with the exception of within 5 minutes out of the shower, the eczema flares up. It's a vicious circle, if anyone has had this before and it's went away please help!!! Any other thoughts are greatly appreciated. Thanks!
