I have severe eczema. That's what ther doctor said. He also said that it make never completely go away, but we can at least keep it under control so that it's not as painful.
I can't use antibacterial soaps. I can't use scented lotions on the hands (so I'm gonna have to get really creative with my Bath and Body Works lotions). I have to get some strong steroid cream that I have to use but have to take breaks from for my skin. I also have to find scentless, hydrating lotion that I have to use after I wash my hands. And I have to wear gloves at night to lock in the moisture from the lotion.
I've never had eczema before my adulthood. Has this happened to anyone else?
