Hi, I couldn't help respond after reading your post. I have eczema and had the same problems you described. Approximately two years ago, I contracted a steph infection from working in the hospital. I had this infection for a least two years. I went to several specialist and they all kept saying it was contact dermatitis and gave me anti inflammatory creams and steroids. After becoming very weak and itchy all over, I couldn't take it anymore. I finally drove to University of Michigan to see another allergist, THANK GOD I DID. I was finally diagnosed with a skin steph infection. He said it was caused from me itching from my eczema that the bacteria entered my skin and it's not uncommon for doctors to misdiagnose. I was given bacterium antibiotic cream to put on the affected areas and also bacterium antibiotics pills. I was told that the doctor should have known that there was an infection going on because my skin was warm to the touch and also my c-reactive protein level in my blood was high. It does sound like you might have an infection. Treat it with antibiotics, bacterium da for a month or so and you should find yourself feeling better. Good luck

Again, do not suffer like I did. Ask your doctor to write you out a script for bacterium DS. You have nothing to lose. If the itching and redness start to go away within a week or so, then you know for sure.

I advise you to get a test done to find the allergen. if you find the cause of your allergy you might me able to avoid the causative agent. you can always consult your dermatologist for the same.
