I Feel Ugly Like This...

I got diagnosed with eczema when I was a kid and was told it wasn't that bad and that I would grow out of it as an adult. And that's what I truely believed at first. My parents got rid of things that would irritate my allergies. So they took out all the carpet in our house and I was only allowed to have one stuffed animal and I got this allergy cover for my bed and pillow. I was happy as a kid cause it really wasn't that bad. I had it around the back of my knees, thigh area, behind my armpit area, and every once in a while on my arms. It wasn't too bad so I didn't really care too much. It wasn't hardly there at all during in the summer since I swam all the time and the chlorine from the pool seemed to help. Years went by and I grew into a happy adult but within the last year or so, it went crazy. I feel so ugly now. It has spread all over my legs, arms, back and even my breasts. I've tried every thing I can think of and nothing helps! Oatmeal baths make it 10 times worse. I've tried every kind of cream and lotion I can find. And my doctor is clueless as to what to do. The only thing that I've found that helps a little is Hempz lotion that cost almost $20 a bottle but even that does nothing for the itch. And worse is that I feel so alone in this since no one in my family has ever had eczema, so have never even heard of it until I got it. Any help would be nice.

Apple cider vinegar worked for me. Just a tsp or so every night in my tea. Cleared it up dramatically. And I had really severe excema before. Still have patches though which is sad ):

Try Dead Sea ba<x>sed products :) I've had severe eczema since I was 4 and I've been trying a lot of remedy and cure others have tried but so far the best thing to keep it in control for me is Dead Sea ba<x>sed products. Dead Sea minerals have been very famous for years at healing eczema, so like Dead Sea soap, lotions, creams, and definitely bodywash for a shower or bath.<br />
