Eczema and College
Posted in the Eczema Forum
#1 Aug 4, 2011
Hi everyone! I'm 18, and I've been dealing with lots of eczema all my life, but especially the past 8 months. I've used steroids, but they seem to have stopped working, and I don't want to keep using them what with all the negative side effects. My eczema is on my face, neck, shoulders, arms, stomach, and legs. It oozes and is constantly red and itchy. It also gets worse during times of stress. The thing is, I'm supposed to start my first year of college in a month. I don't want to go like this and live in a dorm (I have lots of dust/mold allergies, too) and meet new people feeling kind of diseased. I was thinking about taking a year off and trying to heal some of this up. Any thoughts would be much appreciated!
