Hi everyone. I tried washing my scalp with an apricot scrub before my regular shampoo. The experience was helpful for my scalp seborhheic dermatitis and removed scale and residue buildup. But, the very next day the scales returned and once again, my scalp was inflamed and itchy! I’m so frustrated with this condition, because it has been ongoing for over a year now. I really want to get rid of it. Any suggestions or tips? I’ll be getting selsun shampoo to start washing my hair with, but I know this is also linked to my stress and inflammation levels, which are both high. Any ideas or suggestions on how to create a plan to work through this and cut down on the total number of scale buildup, hair fall and frequency of dandruff production as well as the size of scales? If you have any suggestions or tips, don’t be afraid or share! I’m all ears.
I’ve had eczema since I was a baby and I’ve slowly realised certain things that can help my skin, I used to flare up a lot to the point I couldn’t move or I’d be in pain and I haven’t had a bad flare up in a good 8 months which is amazing to me because I used to be in hospital a lot! I was in hospital 3 times in one year it was so bad x
I’ve been cutting down on chemical products to apply on my skin. I avoid makeup on a daily basis and apply limited amounts for special events only. Heavily scented moisturisers and lip glosses have also been cut out. No more alcohol based perfumes or body sprays except for on special events.
I feel so stressed about my scalp seborrheic dermatitis. It has yet to clear up despite being here for over a year now. It’s gotten worse! It usually erupts because of stress, but hasn’t disappeared. Any suggestions for treatment? I’ve been recommended a zinc shampoo by my dermatologist.
My dream would be to be a spokesperson or influencer to help people with eczema I’ve actually been approached by Eczema outreach to do a blog for a full month to see how eczema changes throughout the weather and everyday tasks, I feel like there isn’t a lot of people on YouTube who have really bad eczema and I have thought about talking about A-topic eczema and allergies , make up , mental health etc does anyone think it’s a good idea if I done this ?? 🌈

I have not been diagnosed but I have had some sort of “eczema” since I was little. Never got too bad, annoying but not bad. I want to exercise regularly but whatever is on my scalp always gets in the way. While I’m exercising, if I sweat a lot (which I always do) it itches so bad. If I consistently exercise the way I want to for successful weight loss, my hair starts falling out. It stresses me out so bad that I just starting getting I consistent and I’m gaining weight again. Any advice?
I’ve had eczema since I was 2 and it’s been a long battle with being in and out of hospital infections ect. And everyone told me when I was longer don’t itch you’ll ruin your skin but it was difficult and they didn’t understand and now I’m much older I can’t wear the clothes that I want to due to the discolouration on my legs arms and hands and it makes it really difficult meeting people Becos I feel like that’s all they see is a spotty patchy gross mess and I feel like they look disgusted like it’s contagious anyone have any advice on how to get rid of the discolouration ?x
I can't feel my arm when I itch it burns sooo much.
Hey everyone, recently my eczema has been really bad especially round my eyes and mouth but I asked a nurse what she recommended and it’s helped so wanted to share it. I used hydrocortisone 0.5% steroid cream, just a thin layer and then an emollient on top (she said to use both coz steroid and emollient together coz sometimes steroid cream can exacerbate symptoms and make it drier but if you put the emollient cream on first it makes it sting in areas of skin that are thin like round the eyes)
Hope that helps!
I have excema on my eye lids. I don't know what to do. I went to the doctor and a dermatologist and they keep saying it's allergies but I know it's not. I used to get them on my elbows and it didn't go away for 2 years on and off. Now the elbow is better and it turned to my eyes. I don't know what I can put on my eyelids to make it stop itching. I know I can't use too much cortisone cuz eye lids are thin skin... Help!!!
Curel itch defense hydratherapy works wonders for me!!
Does anyone have tips for photosensitive eczema it’s ridiculous I am always burning at this time and my skin goes very tight I need some help it’s so sore I’m all wrapped in bandages
Has anyone found a permanent or at least temporary relief for seborhheic dermatitis?
HI GUYS!! I found a really good healing ointment that helps with my eczema — which can get really bad 😞 within a day, my skin goes from red and itchy to shedding and bumpy. Anyways — the product is from Saje (I believe they run in the US and CANADA, but I’d double check for international as well). It created miracles for me! Hope it helps you :) attaching a picture of what it looks like in the comments below.
☁️🌥⛅️ PMA ⛅️🌥☁️ What helps you calm down the inflammation when your eczema is triggered?
I’ve had eczema since I was 3 and it used to be really bad all over my body. It’s a lot better now as it’s only slightly on my face and only a few other places. For me (living in uk) the best ointments/creams/moisturisers are hydrocortisone/eumovate/betnovate creams for redness and aveeno moisturiser, which they sell in boots or some other supermarkets. I also found that it’s good to keep in mind the way your skin reacts to different clothing materials, for example wool really irritates me. Hope i could help 🙌🙌
Eczema is such a debilitating nightmare to live with and no one understands the struggle of overcoming it 😔 it’s seriously so hard to live with, it just feels like your body is eating its own skin alive
I'm pretty sure I have eczema and my mother never really told me officially or got it checked as a kid, because I have rashes really bad around my mouth and on my chin as well as around my chest area. It's really painful and red and it seems to never go away. Had it for years now and nothing ever seems to help or fix it.
🎗 PMA POST 🎗 Useful tips for managing eczema: 🔸topical and oral medications can help lessen the severity of itching, swelling, and redness 🔹patch tests can be instrumental in deciphering if an allergen is to cause 🔸be mindful of lotions and body washes (fragrance-free, gentle cleansers are best) 🔹avoid hot water (it can irritate eczema and dry out the skin) 🔸thicker creams will provide more moisture than lighter lotions 🔹know your triggers: weather, stress, allergens in the environment, chemicals, etc. can all impact your eczema
🍌 PMA 🍌 Did you know that 70% of your immune system and 95% of the serotonin in your body live in your gut? When it comes to maintaining your microbiome at its healthiest level, nothing is more important than what you eat or drink. If you are suffering from skin conditions, such as eczema, then these health problems could be traced from an unhealthy gut. The picture above identifies a few foods you can eat to keep your gut healthy 💚
I’m 63 and I’ve suffered the pain and embarrassment of eczema all my life. I’ve never known anyone else with this condition and it has contributed to my depression/anxiety. Lotions don’t work. After showing, I coat myself with petroleum jelly as it’s thicker and lasts longer. My Dermatologist had me try a new drug called Dupixent but it didn’t work. ☹️ If I get really bad flare ups he gives me a shot to suppress my immune system and it helps a lot. Sorry I can’t remember the name? I feel for anyone who suffers from this disease. 🙏🏻
Having a sudden breakout of eczema on my hand. Stress related. Tips for removing it?
Does anyone ever get eczema that peels like sunburn?
It’s my second day taking itraconazole for severe Seborhheic dermatitis. I can say that the following has changed: Less itchy skin Less shiny redness
I’ve had Eczema since a young child.. Maybe a few months old. Whilst I have been free of major flare ups for years, I often get sweet reminders that I suffer with eczema when a random bout starts to flare. Currently have one on my back, which despite everything, will not leave and that’s only due to the fact that it started out of stress. Until my stress levels drop, my eczema won’t cease.. Does anyone else have this problem?
