    I’m trying to figure out what is on my arm. They’re a series of itchy pink bumps that make an oval. I don’t know if it’s eczema or ringworm or what. ): ..?

    i have this kind of rash with red and skin color bumps on a very small area of my chest , it started as a red itchy rash at first and it would get worse in the shower cause that’s when i scratch it the most ,but then after a while it started to turn into little bumps like pimples so i thought it was eczema or some sort of allergy but now i am confused so i am seeing a demartologist pretty i need the right meds for the treatment cause cortizone is only helping with the itching

    is it dangerous to consume foods you might have alergy to… if its only causing skin redness .. it does not itch or bother me…can i continue eating the food ? i am not even sure i have alergy to the food
    doctor could just tell me i have alergy to cat and dogs and a tree… but there could be cross alergy.. is it dangerous to continue if i just get red on some places and not actually bothered ?

    O_O i herd about eczema a few days ago, and i wondered what it was.. and wow i have some on my hands, but i just use ordinary lotion, i use it a couple times a day.. and it goes away in about a week… and comes back every 2 weeks or so… depending on the weather..

    Ive just done a month of chinese herbal but didnt feel it was working and its too expensive for me to risk it so ive quit and going to try changing my diet. Would you say it was worth it? I dont like the sound of it coming back that bad

    it’s okay, i suffer from eczema around my groin !
    i use western GP creams and the sharp pains and itching are all gone, i have noticed after one week the eczema around my groin is gone and i can go days without the need of using eczema creams. when the eczema does come back i just put GP cream on it and the eczema is gone for a long time more than a day !
    i use 4 creams daily for my eczema.
    i wish you the good future : )

    I’ve had eczema since I was about 6 months old. It usually occurs on my face my knees and my inner elbows. It burns and itches and is so dry I can hardly move or smile. For medicines I use cera ve cream, equate anti itch cream, over the counter hydrocortisone, hibiclens, and equate antibiotic cream, and also protopic. If ur looking for something to use in the bath tub I recommend using aveeno oatmeal bath. But since I use all if this stuff my eczema is so easy to manage.

  • David Stern

    I’ve had eczema all my life. When I was an infant, my mother refused the doctors to treat it with any sort of steroids. It wasn’t until quite recently that any certified doctor was willing to submit. He said, “You shouldn’t apologize for using alternative medicine, I should apologize because I have nothing better to offer you. You were ahead of your time.” No Steroids. Not unless it’s a matter of life or death.
