Dealing With Skin That Looks Aged From Rashes

Skin damage and injury are one of the most aging things one can do to their appearance. With eczema, it is a daily struggle to not rub and scratch on hotspots and flare-ups. As the skin heals, it can look older, damaged and wrinkly. But if one finds a way to heal, this state is only temporary. Watch the video to learn more about this and how to keep up your morale as you’re in the process of healing.

    I was only 15 years old at the time but I felt I looked like an old lady with deep wrinkles and red skin on my face. It was a very depressing time for me especially having to attend school looking like that. My teachers were very sympathetic and at least my grades were good. My parents had given up on finding a dermatologist who could help me. I bought some gauze bandages and wrapped my skin and arms that were also covered with eczema at night before I went to bed because I had been scratching while I was asleep. My skin began to clear up and the itching ceased. This really made a difference in my life at school and everywhere else. I’ve had flareups all during my life but most of the time I don’t need treatment and lead a fairly normal life. No one really knows I have atopic dermatitis. My skin requires special care most of the time though.

    I’m sorry that you had to deal with that in high school. I started having eczema at the age of 5 and it was strong up until my mid-twenties. I went the Chinese Medicine, Elimination Diet and nutrition/lifestyle route to help me heal. Glad to hear that you are able to live a normal life. If you’d like more support around healing eczema naturally, would love to point you to some more resources if you’re unable to find what you’re looking for on AtopicDermatitis.Net. Though there are tons of articles here, so I hope you find the information that you’re looking for here. <3
