Eczema Frustrations!

Vent about a time that you felt frustrated by your eczema treatments or skincare products not working or unsolicited advice you received about how to care for your skin (“Have you tried…?”)!

  1. Embarrassed by red itching, sores, stares want to disappear, I can't take any of biologic meds they give me horrible infections
    hydrocortisone and Aloe ! I also have RA and a pigmentation on my arms and chest...thanks for letting me vent 💖✨️

    1. Aw, of course, ! You're always welcome to vent here, this community is here for you and cares about you!!💕 I feel you completely on everything you just said and I'm so sorry that you have to go through these worries as well, my heart goes out to you💓 If you don't mind me asking, how well has hydrocortisone & aloe help you? - Abigail, Team Member

  2. Curious, why those have commented “don’t talk about Dupixent.” Dupixent was what saved me 5 years ago!

    1. Hello dear , I am glad to read that this medication has been effective for you! It is always heartwarming to know that one is on a successful journey! Such a blessing to celebrate! Since we are individuals, with our own genetics and medical histories, one remedy may not work for all of us. What an ideal medical world it would be if one treatment was of benefit to all. Please know there are many members here that agree with you and those who may not. Here is a sampling from our colleagues: https://atopicdermatitis.net/living/dupixent-pros-and-cons.

  3. Every time, especially dealing with dupixent

    1. Hello , thank you for responding. May I clarify, are you on this medication currently and if so, is it effective? If your answers are what I am thinking, I am sad to know. I hope your doctor is listening to your reactions. Please stay in touch as we are very concerned about your health and well-being. Sending healing hugs, Liz - AtopicDermatitis.net - Site Moderator
