So I went to the dermatologist several months ago for Hand Eczema and he gave me 2 ointments which cleared it up within 3 days. Now that I’ve used it for so long, it’s like my body is resisting it. So I’ve been using Cortizone 10 for the itching because it’s really bad.
I don’t have health insurance at the moment so I can’t go back to the doctors. Do any of you know any tricks in relieving my hands.
I would show you a pic but they are horrible.
Plus, I work at a subway making peoples food and I don’t want
them to see my hands and be grossed out!
Even though Im wearing gloves…
Please help me!!!!!
sorry to tell you but unfortunately eczema does not go away. the more you scratch the more it itches, my little boy has it- severly, its all over his body so I do sympothize for you and have it on your hands. What I have learned is this, eczema is actually driven by allergies, you are coming in contact or eating something that you are allergic to, the trick is, is to find out what you are allergic too. If you cant afford and allergist, try removing certain things from your diet, say start with milk if you are a milk drink, go 3-5 days w/o it see if there is a difference, if no change then try something else. As far as the creams go that they gave you, they are steroids they work but only for a short time and then your body will resist them and then they will have to give you stronger ones. My little boy is 3 and already taking level 5 steroids, its really bad! now for itching, try oatmeal baths, mineral oil ( not baby oil, it contains fragrance) and this should help with some of the itching, also heat really makes this stuff flare up, we keep our house pretty cool. hope this helps if you have any more questions feel free to email me email@example.com
I have eczema under my knees and sometimes where my elbows are. It really hurts when i walk and it itches. I sometimes get in under my knees after a hot shower.How can i cure it?,and if not how can i delay it?
There are no cures for eczema, only managements. Here are a list of dos and don’ts:
Things not to do:-
Don’t use biological powders
Don’t use fabric softeners
Don’t use soap or detergents to wash with
Don’t use standard shower gels or bath additives
Things to do :-
Try Fairy Snow -the old fashioned powder
Use dryer balls
Use a soap free cleanser to wash hands etc.
Use a moisturising shower gel like Oilatum
Use a moisture bath additive like Aveeno
Use a good moisturiser like Aveeno
Use it very frequently, you can’t over-moisturise!
Use antihistamines for itch, a non sedative one like loratidine in the morning and a sedative one such piriton at night.
You may need to use steroids creams/ointments for flare up areas. Use the mildest you can, for the shortest time possible.
Sorry if you knew all of that already

Unfortunately, 1 in 5 people suffer from Eczema. In fact, as you may already know, Eczema is especially common among children. Research points to a combination of genetic factors along with external environmental reasons as the cause of this skin disorder. One such environmental factor is an allergic reaction to gluten, also known as grain sensitivities. Gluten is a key source of nutritional protein, both as foods prepared directly from sources containing it, and as an ingredient thickener. Most wheat grains contain gluten. Also, gluten is used in lesser known things such as in ice-cream and ketchup as a product thickener. Gluten supplies many important health benefits to a daily diet such as needed protein and fiber.
How do I know if my child is allergic to Gluten?
Aa starter you can go to http://www.nutritionaltest.com/freegluten.html to take a quick subjective questionnaire online. If you answer yes to most of the questions then you probably need to take a more in-depth test.
Living Gluten Free with Eczema
Being sensitive to wheat products does not mean your child has to be deprived of all the health wonders of Gluten. Among some of the substitutes he or she can take include maize, potatoes, rice, tapioca, sweet potato, and yams. Furthermore, a combination of eating right and the proper regimen can also drastically help control your child’s eczema triggers. A good, natural hydrocortisone cream, medicated body wash, and a high quality moisturizing cream can go a long way if your child does have any eczema flare ups from time to time.
