Eczema... HELP.

Hi Ladies, I've been getting this problem every year in the cold dry season - I get exzema on my hands, hips and lower legs. It drives me crazy.... But it gets 10 times worse during times of stress.

I make sure I use a gentle soap free wash in the shower, I moisturise as soon as I get out of the shower. Steroid creams don't seem to help too much either.

Can someone recommend what else I could try???

how often are you showering/bathing? too much/often makes it worse.

Cetaphil wash and lotions work well. can buy it anywhere


have you thought about it maybe being psoriasis!? i thought i had eczema flare up on my eyelids. nothing helped, and believe me, i tried EVERYTHING under the sun. then someone mentioned psoriasis! i bought the Psoriasin gel, applied it and within a week, it started clearing up! by a month, it was gone!

Thanks for that, I'll try the psoriasis gel, fingers crossed

Have you tried applying olive oil to the dry areas or Aveeno moisturizing body cream? I would moisturize your skin morning and night. After you shower pat dry your skin and apply lotion while skin is damp to hold in your moisture. Hope that helps.

I use Lay it on thick, from Bath and Body Works. I also use baby oil once a week before I towel off. This is only in the winter, my skin gets really bad. HTH.

Before you go to bed you can use vitamin e oil and the cetaphil in the tub...its a cream andbits super thick. Also if you can find spoke shea butter and add some oils to it and blend it il real good and slather it on before you go to sleep it works real good. I don't like walking around like a greasball that is why I Tobit before bed and it soaks in and my skin is iver soft the next day and my skin clears up nicely...also make sure you are drinking enough water that will control the frequency of the flare ups

I'm suffering badly from it during pregnancy. I got QV flare up bath oil and it works wonders! I've had 2 baths with it and the eczema has settled down heaps. I'm going to have regular baths with it to keep it at bay. Hope you find something that gives you some relief I know how bad it can feel

My nephew has the worst case of eczema I've ever seen. I know that he uses prescribed things along with cerave lotions and soaps (you can buy at walgreens and I think walmart has it too). Also, my kids have it sometimes too and I make sure they aren't overbathed and keep them lotioned. Good luck!

I thought I'd also suggest a moisturiser with oatmeal in it. This really helps my skin and soothes

I have been fighting it. About 8 years ago I had something similar and going to All Free & Clear laundry detergent cleared it up. Apparently it was a contact allergy but cutting out the scented laundry detergent and doing double rinse worked.

Then 3 years ago it came back (in winter all three years in a row now). Since then I have been diagnosed with eczema by both my GP and a dermatologist. Steroid creams work and I have tried a lot naturally (I'm an herbalist) that has helped but nothing cleared it up.

This Fall/Winter I have a terrible flare up. It's on my legs but I got a tiny patch above my left breast and with revision coming up PS said at post-op NOT to use the cortisone creams near my breasts. But that taking Benadryl for the itch was okay. So I started putting the Benadryl cream on that little spot and it went away in 3 days while the legs were under control but still very much there with the RX cortisone cream. So I started using it on my legs too (as well as shaving my legs with conditioner NOT anything that foams, so no shaving gel, body wash, etc.) Now just two days on this and I'm almost clear with no cortisone.

Not sure if this helps anyone or not and I don't know if I was misdiagnosed, twice, by two doctors. Skin irritations are always worse in winter but the antihistime cream finally cured it. And fast. I guess it's a really another contact allergy of some sort with the antihistime clearing it. Now to figure out the trigger...a type of fabric, the detergent, a lotion/oil?

I cannot use anything from BBW. They add so much fragrance (code for ingredients they do not wish to disclose) that I just don't trust them. Once you start reading up on personal care products and the absence of overnight it will low your mind. We focus a lot on what we put IN our bodies and not enough on what we put ON them.

Keep it natural, whatever you do. I love coconut oil for so many jobs, it is awesome!

I know this is an older post but my dr recommended something thats helped my eczema immensley. Bleach baths. No joke. Run a bath and add 1/2 cup of bleach and soak from 5-10 minutes once a week. You can do twice a week if its really bad to start. Get out, pat dry and use a good lotion (eucerine, cetaphil, etc). I've had no issues (I orig was worried about my naughty bits sitting in bleach water, but no issues there), only thing is you smell like you've been cleaning for a few hours after. I usually just take the bleach bath at night and the smell is gone after my morning shower.

You had mentioned a "trigger". I used to be a waitress and also I used to do pedicures and such in a nail salon. I used to have eczema real bad at both places. I figured out after quitting my job at the restaurant that it was the chemical in the cleaner for the tables and at the nail place it was constantly using chemicals there. Well shortly after my BA I got the eczema back and I think it's from using cocoa butter because I didn't use it until after my BA. I quit using the cocoa butter but it's not going away so there is either something else or I need to put some cream or take some steroids to get rid of it. I've been battling this for years and hate it! I understand what you mean though I've heard from my doc that it can be brought on by stress but for me so far it's just a chemical thing. It certainley stresses you when you have it though so I'm sure it doesn't help.
