67 Years of Eczema

I started having eczema at age 3, also asthma. I was in and out of the hospital and constantly sick.

By the age of 14, I started to “calm“ down a bit. Still got sick mostly in the fall and winter. Summers were always the best for me.
I still had very dry skin and allergies.

I managed to have a fairly normal existence until menopause and now I’m worse than I ever was. Especially my hands. It’s pure torture.

Thinking of DUPIXENT but it's very expensive. I’m becoming a recluse.
