  1. My name is Shelley O. I was diagnosed with Eczema five years ago. Shelley O.  I was diagnosed six years ago.   I live in Denver, so it is a very dry environment and makes it difficult when add Eczema on top of it.   My fun fact is I am a proud aunt to six nephews and nieces.

    1. Hi Shelley, thank you! Do you have a fun fact you'd be willing to share? -Sarah (AtopicDermatitis.net Team Member)

    2. I was very interested and support you having facial eczema. This is not a recent photo. I have had eczema for years. I have never had it on my face. I have had a flare up right now. For me it is awful when it is on my face. You cannot hide this. I am unable to wear makeup when I have a flare up.
      Medication from Dermatologist did not help.
      I read about Magnalife care for Eczema. I read about it in AARP news paper. I decided to try it and to my surprise it has helped take away the thick scales and the redness.
      When I have a flareup it seems to last forever.
      I hope everyone with eczema will find a treatment.

    1. Hi! Would you like to be part of the photo gallery? If so, send us a portrait, how long you've lived with eczema, and one fact. Let me know if you need help! -Sarah (AtopicDermatitis.net Team Member)

  3. Hello, all! My name is Putri M, I'm twenty one. I've had an eczema since I can't remember, but I guess it's about since I was three years old.

    A fun fact about me is that I'll be confused when I'm not in the flare-up phase because I'm used to living with eczema. You know, like something is missing in my life hahaha. I mean, our pain, our hardship or difficulty is precisely our strength~

    Good luck, all! God is good. <3 Sending a lots of love from Indonesia to all my fellow itchy people from around the world!


    *that pict is about few months ago a day after my routine check-up and after I got my ointments. I took that pict at an airport toilet. 😛
