Eczema steroids don't work

It is important to use the correct amount of topical steroid for your eczema, as instructed by your healthcare professional. Topical steroids should be applied with clean hands so that the skin just glistens. It can sometimes be difficult to judge how much steroid to use and there are guidelines on the amount required to cover body areas that are affected by eczema. These are based on the Finger Tip Unit (FTU), and explained in detail in our fact sheet which you can download as a pdf from the related documents to the right of this page.

Hi I’m 25 I have had lip eczema since 12 years old and face eczema since 20 years old. My Lip eczema being moderate and face eczema mild. However this year my face eczema began to flare up. I live in Miami which everyone should know very hot and humid. I should be very oily all year round but I’m just dry, generally in my t-zone. I smoked cigarettes from 16 years old to about 22 years old never thinking anything of it until this year when I experienced a bit of dermatitis and eventually scaling, redness, and itchy eczema. I cannot even wear makeup because it ends up flaking and falling off. For my lip eczema I was given from my dermatologist desonide for the swelling and also a lip balm from Dr. Dan corti balm, which has been like the smallest bit of heaven. Granted the scaling on my lips had not gone away they are always peeling although this has been the best relief I have received thus far. For my face eczema I have been using elidel for about 4 days now twice daily. What I like about this cream is that it’s not a steroid therefore it will not thin out my skin as it is already very thin and flakey. I also use the cetaphil moisturizer in combination with their facial wash when I’m very dry. As for my diet I have always eaten processed foods, spicy foods, and anything that was junk food. About 3 months ago I started dieting and eating fruits, veggies, and salads to reduce any allergic reactions or flare ups. I’m going to post back in a few days to advise everyone of my progress with elidel. God bless you guys!

Thanks so much for taking the time to write this, and to gather all this information. I have been suffering from Eczema for most of my life – I am currently 23 years old and suffer from it. I am originally from Australia and recently moved to to pursue acting, and since I’ve been here my skin has gotten worse and worse. I think possibly due to the weather, moving out of home so learning how to cook and feed myself correctly, as well as increased stress and lack of sleep from dealing with every day life and auditions. I have been following your blog for the past few months, and I have taken bits and pieces from it when really helped. But as soon as I started reading your book I got goosebumps – I finally felt like this was the answer I had been looking for. In the past 3 months alone since it is now Summer I have taken 2 steroid shots and 3 rounds of steroid tablets since I have had so many flare ups, but I finally feel confident that with the advice and information in this book, that I can now maintain and hopefully completely rid myself of my eczema forever! I would highly recommend this book to everyone with eczema, as it truly contains all the information that if you follow it, it will really help your journey towards being eczema free forever! Thanks for being a messenger and bringing this information to the rest of the world! – Emily C. (Reader)

In those children with allergy causing the eczema, they will usually get rashes or more extensive eczema soon after eating a particular food or drinking milk (in the case of babies). If you notice this, remove that food from your child's diet ( if you have a baby, this will need to be done under supervision with an appropriate other formula ). If there is a marked improvement on removal of the suspected food, then the food may have been the cause - cautious reintroduction of the food after 3-4 weeks will enable you to be sure. If on reintroduction of the food, the skin remains clear, the food can continue in the diet. If the skin flares up again, that food needs to be removed from the diet. In those toddlers who do have an allergy to a food causing eczema, a trial of reintroduction can be made in 6 - 12 months time as many children will grow out of these allergies.

How does eczema start? I had one regular blister on my foot that would not heal. Within 2 weeks, I had many tiny blisters. The initial blister did heal. I have been dealing with these blisters for 5 months now. I went to the doc 3 times. The last specialist said I am experiencing stress…which I am, which makes the eczema worse. She said leather shoes are better than tennis shoes. She told me to stay hydrated inside and out. She prescribed me a cream that I took to reduce the inflammation, but I try not to use. I wear socks with everything to avoid friction on my feet. I am on my feet most of the work day. Even power walking gives me blisters and irritates the tiny blisters. I miss my feet. I was eating healthy prior to all this…it is a struggle now, just balancing all of life’s demands. I am glad to find your blog. Any helpful advice welcomed.

In general, keep the skin lubricated. Apply oil such as Neutrogena body oil or Alpha-Keri oil to the skin at the end of ones shower. Vaseline is even more helpful if not too greasy. Do not take more than one bath or shower a day. Use lukewarm water, as hot water dries out the skin. When toweling dry pat, don't rub. Blot the skin so there is still some water left on the skin. Soap irritates and dries the skin, so keep it away from the eczema. When bathing limit the use of soap to the face, armpits, genital area, and feet. For soap, use Cetaphil, Oil of Olay, Dove or Basis. Avoid contact with wool or rough clothing. Cotton clothes (100%) are best. When laundering the clothes, use no fabric softener, Kling or dryer sheets. Wash the clothes using dye free, fragrance free detergents such as the "All free" detergent. It is possible to find a treatment routine that controls nummular eczema.
