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.
Anyone with eczema has probably noticed that sweat is not a friend of eczema. It has been driving me crazy not being able to run recently. I am seeing a dermatologist who has me on prednisone. As the dose has tapered, my eczema is coming back.
This time around I have been experimenting with alternative treatments ranging from coconut oil, almond oil, tea tree oil to tanning salons.
Please stop in, say hello and share your experiences, ideas, or your frustrations if you need to vent!
