As far as topical treatments go I’ve run out of the prescription options having tried all the prescribable moisturizers.They are all basic barrier creams only & are full of mineral oils. Unlike barrier repair creams ( that only seem to be listed under the “Cosmetic label). I have found that Creams with hyaluronic acid & ceremides in concentrated…

Don’t give up. I am not sure what all you have tried probably like my husband to much to list. So far we have only had temporary short term itch relief with Creve cream in jar for eczema. We aren’t giving up yet. Prayers for you.

Thank you so much. He hasn’t resorted to strong meds like injections but have tried so many things to even list with very little relief. Some things temporarily help itch but NOTHING has taken the rash away.

Hi @helen,

Dealing with eczema around the eyes can be maddening. Experiencing a visual impairment like the floaters from retinal detachment must have been a frightening experience for you. Did your retinal specialist or ophthalmologist tell you what caused the retinal detachment? Our article about eye symptoms…

Hi, tannersnan,

This sounds like a very frustrating situation! AD is not something I’d wish on anyone, and it sounds like your husband, unfortunately, developed it suddenly.

There are many resources on this website for help in treating eczema/Atopic Dermatitis. There are lots of stories about people’s experiences too. Treatment really…

Hi, bakerdrummer30,

Ear eczema has to be up there with some of the worst places that you can have an itch! I have found myself using Q-tips in my ears five times a day! (I absolutely do NOT recommend this. When I told my doctor how often I was itching the insides of my ear canals with Q-tips, he got very upset, and explained that they are…

My favorite moisturizer is Cetaphil Moisturizing Cream. It is super thick and helps heal some of my driest skin while I sleep. I use it mostly on my hands at night, but it’s great for most any other part of the body too (though I think it’s a bit thick for the face!).

Hi, Helen,

It sounds like the AD you have around your eyes is pretty severe! I don’t have AD around my eyes (at least not currently, though I have in the past), but I did need a laser surgery to seal up some holes/tears in my retina. I’ve had one surgery in each eye so far. The eye doctor said that the tears was from being extremely…

@anuskin – how incredibly frustrating this all must be 🙁 I know that many others in the community have mentioned that they are seeking natural methods of treatment so that they aren’t relying on steroids or other medications. Have you been able to express these concerns to your doctor? Thought you may find interest in our special section…

I’ve been under a dermatologist’s care for eczema for 3 years now. My eczema has persisted despite using numerous topical prescription drugs during that time. Since using your Foderma Serum for 2 weeks, I’m cautiously optimistic. Some of my smaller patches of eczema are actually healing!! I’m hopeful that with continued use, my more troublesome…

We hear you, Melody. It’s been a long road for you, and I’m glad that her allergists and doctors are helpful. Definitely make sure to take good care of yourself, especially on those days you feel overwhelmed with it all. And always remember to reach out to your support network to see if you can get some help with either things around the house or…

Nhs prescription formulary exhausted. After years of constant topical steroid use I won’t use it anymore. For over a year now have been on imunosupressant courses 4 times & flared up just weeks after finishing each course. I’ve done all I can with diet as have multiple allergies (my Ige is over 2000). It seems there is nothing i can do.
