My 14 year old daughter has had eczema for about four years now. I just wanted a place to get knew ideas and some support because I have no idea what's going on with her little petri dish of a body. :) Right now one of my main concerns is diet and how it's linked to eczema and her "heaczema" as she calls it referring to her itchy head. <BR> <BR> To my dismay, not once has the dermatologist asked her about her diet. We do follow primarily an anti inflammatory diet and although sh... Mon, 6 Oct 2014 13:59:29 EST Hello http://www.sparkpeople.com/myspark/team_messageboard_thread.asp?board=-1x59664x57335438 My name is Leola. I have eczema which seems to 'flare up' painfully during the winter months. I had flaking skin on my face that looked like dandruff even without my scratching it. My knuckles and cuticles would split open and bleed. I've tried dry skin lotions, medicated lotions, oils, Cortizone and even prescriptions... nothing worked until now. <BR> <BR> Avon has a new 'moisture therapy intensive healing & repair' lotion that truly works for me. I figured I'd try it out because it was on ...

Thu, 28 Nov 2013 17:58:36 EST Eczema resources? http://www.sparkpeople.com/myspark/team_messageboard_thread.asp?board=-1x59664x55226401 Does anyone have any recommendations on books or online resources? Both my husband and I live with eczema. I struggled with it as a kid, then it went dormant for a long time, but within the past year or so it has come back with a vengeance. Fri, 11 Oct 2013 11:25:56 EST Winter is Coming! http://www.sparkpeople.com/myspark/team_messageboard_thread.asp?board=0x59664x55226218 Is anyone doing anything to prepare for winter and dry skin issues? Fri, 11 Oct 2013 11:09:29 EST Eczema - dishydrosis http://www.sparkpeople.com/myspark/team_messageboard_thread.asp?board=-1x59664x53237370 My hands and feet broke out with dry, flakey patches of skin, breaking into skin splits a few years ago. It is only on my hands and feet. The first dermatologist diagnosed psoriasis and treated me for that...unsuccessfully. I went to a second doctor (actually the PA of the doctor) and he did a biopsy and it came back as dishydrosis - a form of eczema. The only thing is, what I read on line doesn't match how mine comes up. It talks about small blisters. I get that on my feet on occasion, but ... Mon, 6 May 2013 07:11:37 EST eczema sucks! http://www.sparkpeople.com/myspark/team_messageboard_thread.asp?board=-1x59664x52497002 I don't suffer from it, but my husband does. His flare ups are awful to watch. The bloody knuckles, the rashes, the general misery. Prednisone is not a great solution. It takes the edge off, but it leaves him lethargic and exhausted. I would love to lead a more active family life, but he hates sweating, too. <BR> My mother controls her arthritis with diet, I keep hoping we can find a solution like that for him. We are desperate. Tue, 12 Mar 2013 07:59:50 EST Why I started this team - Eczema and Exercise http://www.sparkpeople.com/myspark/team_messageboard_thread.asp?board=-1x59664x52475479 I started this team after trying to search for advice from others on SP who have eczema. I have had eczema and sensitive skin in varying degrees since I was a child. The only deodorant I have been able to use since my junior year of college is the line of crystal deodorants. My last major flareup was nine years ago. I am working through a flareup again now. The difference between now and nine years ago is that now I like to exercise. <BR> <BR> Anyone with eczema has probably noticed tha... Sun, 10 Mar 2013 20:35:16 EST
