My Eczema Story

My illness started with dark circles around my eyes I hadn't seen before, I felt a lot different from that moment but had no explanation for why this had happened, soon after I bought a new TV, an lcd tv (I've never had an lcd tv), I found soon after buying this that I was getting eye strain and very dry eyes, it was generally at its worst while looking at screens like my phone or the tv for instance , this went on for months on and off and I finally bought some eye drops, I know I should've gone to the doctor but I stupidity researched online and came to the conclusion that it was dry eye and as such had no cure, three or so months after this started it calmed down and I didn't experience it as much although my eyes were still always dry. I began developing IBS symptoms, mainly an ill like feeling in my stomach as well as constipation, often I would feel like I wasn't emptying my bowels properly and I noticed it most when I was drinking alcohol. Not long after this I began to get small eczema patches on my face, it wasn't much and came and went a couple of times before coming back in full force and since becoming infected which I'm now on antibiotics for, it's led me to feel like I can't leave the house because of embarrassment and anxiety. I recently bought a computer (with an lcd screen also) and experienced dizziness, more ibs symptoms and also increased eczema itched while using it which has finally led me to believe their is a connection somewhere and it's not just me being paranoid.
This connection is backed up by where I work, a supermarket in which we have very bright lights and I've felt sick during the majority of shifts in the last 6 months. My work is also very dusty and I notice my hands looking extremely dry throughout the shift with these symptoms getting better once I leave the building. The antibiotics I am using for my eczema infection has so far had minimal effect at best and as such Im trying to find the root cause of why I have been feeling so off for so long. I'd really appreciate some theories on this, thanks.
