Eczema

4 posts in this topic

About a year and a half ago, I got eczema.. somehow. I am not sure how it happens but it did and it hurt alot so I went to the doctor, he told me that's what it is, and it wont go away. But he gave me a prescription for "ketoderm" .. not sure what's in it right now but it does help at times.

Anyways, my problem, is that I have the eczema on my face, along with bad skin, and I've been trying to do the regimen on the site, using benzoyl peroxide, and it really seems to be helping, but every while the eczema just gets really bad and starts to hurt so much when I use the bp and moisturizer. I can keep using the ketoderm stuff at the same time, but it doesn't seem to be as effective. So I can either stop the regimen for a few days, and get the eczema to go away for abit if I am lucky, and have my skin destroy itself with acne, or I can keep on the regimen letting the eczema dry out my face and make it painful.

Just wondering, if anyone else out there has eczema and has or had to deal with something like this, and any ideas for what I can do to fix it :(

Thanks.

It's around my eyes and mouth, and abit around the bottom of nose. I've been using the medication stuff for it right after getting out of the shower and then waiting for my face to dry before doing the bp treatment. It seems to help, instead of doing it after my face is dry / right before bp. And has been going away abit more, so less pain as well. :) I just wish there was a way to get rid of it for good.

Hey Guys,

I Know this is an old thread but just in case someone does stumble on this page again and has the same or similar issues I'll post about this new eczema relief cream I found out about.

I have a friend who is affected by eczema. It shows up on his arms and his face.

Recently he told me about this new product called Dexem repair cream. He says that Dexem repair cream has worked far better than other creams in regards to soothing his itching and irritations while clearing his skin.

So I checked out the Dexem repair cream website and they say the cream is safe to use on the skin of infants, children and adults, not based on harsh chemicals or toxic substances and has no side effects which I feel is very good. They say it also moisturises and rehydrates dry skin.

If I get any more information I'll post it up.

Thanks
