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.

A yr and a half ago i developed severe dermatitis all over my body, looked like steven johnson syndrome (but wasnt), intense itching, redness, swelling, dry flaky skin. I have seen several different specialist along with several different treatments. Topical steroids, antihistimanes, IVIG tx, cyclosporin, methotrxate, prednisone and lots of antibiotics.

I just want to know what is going on with my body and why nothing is working?. Please help
