Eczema ,ugh!

For one thing there is so much itchness, dryness and discomfort in eczema prone skin.

Am I right?!

Everybody who has or had ezcema knows how frustrating this condition can be. 

 

Types of eczema

There are different types of eczema:

  •  Atopic dermatitis
  • Contact dermatitis
  • Dyshidrotic eczema
  • Hand eczema
  • Neurodermatitis
  • Nummular eczema
  • Stasis dermatitis
  • Seborrheic eczema    (source)

 

What causes eczema?

Unfortunately there is no simple answer for that question. Diffrenet people have different triggers for ezcema.

Today's thinking is that eczema can be caused due to:

  • Environment
  • Unusual behavior of immune system
  • Weakness in the skin barrier that allow moisture out and germs in

 

Triggers for eczema can be various

 

Some of triggers can be:

1.) Irritants - soaps, detergents, shampoos, disinfectants, juices from fresh fruits, meats, or vegetables

2.) Allergens - dust mites, pets, pollens, mold, dandruff

3.) Germs - bacteria such as Staphylococcus aureus, viruses, certain fungi

4.) Hot and cold temperatures - hot weather, high and low humidity, perspiration from exercise

5.) Foods - dairy products, eggs, nuts and seeds, soy products, wheat

6.) Stress - it is not a cause of eczema but can make symptoms worse

7.) Hormones - women can experience worsening of eczema symptoms at times when their hormone levels are changing, for example during pregnancy and at certain points in their menstrual cycle (source)

 

Eczema is not contagious!

 

My daughter and I we also have eczema prone skin

 
My daughter

She is 2 yrs old now and she has eczema on her neck. 

Her eczema started to appear on her neck when she was 5 months old. It begun to spread from neck down to her chest. But I manage to stop the eczema to spread with Eucerin eczema cream, Dr. Theiss Evening Primrose balm and Avène A.D. cream.

And she also had eczema/contact dermatitis. That was not just eczema they were more open wounds on her back and hips while she was wearing diapers.

We tried over 7 different brands of diapers. But with no luck. So we stop putting diapers on her when she was 15 month old. Until then it was nightmare.

There was no corticosteroid creams that we did not try. And at the end we have used Elocom corticosteroid cream with Triderm corticosteroid cream ( both of them prescription drugs).

Then I said NO that is enough! We are taking the diapers off!

After that we used only Eucerin ezcema cream and Dr.Theiss Evening Primrose balm on her back and hips and in few days everything went away. And it never come back.

 
And me

My first eczema started to show on my left arm, on my fingers. It was so ichty and my skin was peeling. The more I scratch the more I have open wounds on my fingers.

As well I have used Triderm corticosteroid cream with small success of relief.

The eczema on my left arm/fingers calm down after I got pregnant with my first baby.

Now I have eczema on my face. With redness and peeling of the skin and ithcing.

The last flare up was the worst. My facial skin was peeling, itching as hell and I was red as lobster.

This was happening after I had the beginning of pneumonia with very high fever 41.5 C (106.7 F). And I had to use prescribed antibiotic Azithromycin.

I have used my usual cream for eczema Eucerin eczema cream and Dr. Theiss Evening Primrose balm. It has calmed my skin very quickly. I also use Avène A.D. cream very often.
