I just found this forum because I was looking for any help or advice in this situation. Maybe someone of you has experienced something similar or has some tips for us.
I have a new partner and she has had atopic dermatitis since her childhood. We fell in love like crazy, but for some reason, she has a really bad reaction whenever we cuddle on naked skin, get intimate, or when I just touch her a lot. She told me that this is not normal for her to have such a bad reaction to someones skin and only had something similar with one other person before.
It weighs heavily on me since she always has to shower and put her cream on her whole body after we touched each other to not get crazy from the itchiness. I feel so bad for her that I even start to feel bad to touch her.
I tried to change my soaps and detergents already but it didn't help.
Please let me know if you have any idea what exactly could trigger her eczema or if you have had a similar experience. If we can not improve this we don't know how we should live together.
Thank you in advance!
