I m 23 years old southeast asian and have had Eczema my whole life. For the past 6 months now I ve been dealing with some sudden intense, severe itching and rashes. The itching has been UNCONTROLLABLE to the point where I can t go seconds without itching and it gets worst at night and has prevented me from getting any sleep, it s driving me crazy. I feel as if I m a crazy person itching myself all the time. This has never happened before of my whole life dealing with Eczema and just started in April when I first began dating my boyfriend who smokes.The rashes are all over my body, severely on top of my hands, wrists, arms, corners of my armpits, all over my legs worst underneath the corners of my legs and on top of my thighs. My skin suddenly gets SEVERELY dry, flaking and itchy to the point where I can t move without it hurting whenever I wake up or don t have Vasaline on. The lotions that I use to use on my skin are no longer working and that includes Cetaphil. It stings when I shower, especially if I use soap.The soap I use is Dove sensitive unscented soap bar. I wash my sheets and clothes all the time with unscented soap and detergent. I ve gone through two doctors now: First doctor said she wasn t sure what it was and just prescribed me allergy pills which didn t help at all so I stopped that. Second doctor said it was tinea corporis and prescribed me a one week worth of pills for tinea corporis to stop it on top of some pills to prevent itching and to help me sleep at night and those did not do anything whatsoever. I m getting really desperate now. I really want this to stop, its driving me crazy and has never happened before in my whole life until this year. I ve had to go to the hospital because I ve itched to the point where I would ooze and bleed. Even before when my skin gets smooth and normal, I still get this UNCONTROLLABLE URGE TO ITCH ALL OVER, which brings back the rashes. Current medications prescribed and using: Hydroxyzine HCL 25 MG Tablet and Triamcinolone 0.1% Current store bough medications: Advil and Benadryl Current product using to keep skin from being dry: Vaseline (which still doesn t help stop the itching) Current soap: Dove sensitive unscented soap bar. Skin looks and feels SCALY, FLAKY, ROUGH, HARD, PATCHY, UNCONTROLLABLY ITCHY, RED, EXTREMELY DR, PAINFUL. Rashes are all over my body, severely on top of my hands, wrists, arms, corners of my armpits, all over my legs worst underneath the corners of my legs and on top of my thighs.

Hello, I am 13 and have had eczema pretty much since I was 6months. I have it on my face, chest, back, neck, legs, genitals and arms. On my face it doesn t tend to ever be itchy on my nose chin or ears, and those parts are my normal skin colour, light brown. The rest of my face is extremely dark brown, and I am itchy there so often. I use aveeno cream, but it only really moisturises, doesn t really do anything. Me and my mum have been to doctors, dermatologists, they haven t helped at all. They just prescribe creams and steroids which make things worse. I might also add I have hayfever, and eczema runs through the family, but no-one as severe as mine. I fear I m going to have eczema my entire life. My self esteem is extremely low, I am self conscious where ever I go, school or whatever. My face is discoloured like I mentioned and perhaps scary. I really just want to be normal, and live a normal life. Please help.

Hi Last year I had to arrest a Somalian and I thought I got bit by fleas. I have six raised red spots that itch incessantly. I got eczema as a result and have been using betamethasone dipropionate 0.05% (eleuphrat) This cleared the eczema but the original six spot remain and itch even when scratched till bleeding. The cream helps but does not get rid of them. I have no allergies.

hi, my stepdaughter is 5 and the past couple months, has been dealing with very itchy skin. she is only at our house every other weekend, but the last week, myself and my daughter who is 3 have started itching also. her mother took her to the doctor and said a prescription cream was given. i asked her today what the name of the cream was because i m taking my daughter in to be seen by her own doctor, and i figured he d want to know, but she won t tell my husband and i what it was. she got defensive and wanted to know why we needed to know. all she said was it was a one-time application and she didn t remember the name because she threw it away after it was used. the only medication that i can find which is a one-time treatment is for scabies...is there any other ones that might be used for treating eczema? i m worried we got scabies from her and that our itching is related to her issue
