I am finally posting to this thread. I have had dry skin and now ecsema all my life. My mom says I was born with dry skin
In my 20's I worked in a deli and on came the serious ecsema. First on my fingers and the knuckles on the backs of my hands, then my inner elbows, behind the knees...
now it is on my inner thighs. It has been particularly bad this summer. I have had really itchy nad painful hands for about 4 months and the inner thighs flared up about 1-2 months ago. I have been using Ucerin lotion (though not very regularly) and that seems to relieve the itching/pain a bit, but I haven't really done much else. In my 20's I was given TAC cream, but that stuff is really bad.
So, here i am, posting in desparation. I, too, have a hard time in water. SOme days, even putting on gloves to wash or do dishes hurts. I haven't tried any diet elimination. I am wondering where to start. I haven't had chance to read thorugh this thread or anything else to help me. So, any suggestions on where to start??
I am also wondering about the rash my 17 mo. dd has on her mouth/chin area (sometimes with little satellite bumps on her cheeks). She nurses and it seems overnight it dries up and looks better, but after ea day of nursing nad drool in this heat, it looks awful. People always let me know she has a bit of a dirty mouth
I have the joy of saying, no, that's a rash...)
Thanks for this thread. I will try to read it more when i ge the chance.
Itchless painfree days to you all!
