I guess the one good thing about having eczema is that my chances of anyone wanting my skin for a skin suit is lessened
Giggled. But true.
January 2011 I had to quit my job because of incapacitating eczema on my face, which then spread to my entire body. Since then I have restructured my life to find a wholesome way to cure my eczema. This is a site where I will share my journey and also hope to receive information from you of your expertise on eczema and it's cure. I will also post random things that are wonderful, that remind me of the wonders of life.
Thanks so much for the question. I’m so sorry this is such a delayed response! School has been very busy :). I’m so happy to hear you say this blog helps a lot of people, but everyone who reads it helps me stay strong too! The public shame of the eczema’s appearance is something I’ve dealt with as well, now I just tell them my condition and make sure they understand it’s level of seriousness to me.
So by bruises do you mean the scar tissue that is left from the scabs after scratching? Or do you mean after skin peels a bunch off of a certain area it is discolored from the rest of the skin? If it’s the first one I’m afraid I don’t know! Since that is scarring the only the that comes to mind is try using Neosporin? See if it helps heal less visibly. If it’s the second one, I get this problem a lot during the summer. That’s why I hate getting tan! Because if I get tan, then get eczema and lose a lot of skin in patches it makes me spotty! Patches of lighter skin over darker skin. I have it right now on my cheeks and shoulders actually. With this though I’ve learned it goes away with patience without doing much. Let it run it’s course through the winter and my skin is back to normal colors around spring.
That’s a great question! I’ve read about water softeners that’s suppose to help eczema but have never tried it myself. I think I’ve always liked in a city so I don’t have anything to compare it to! How has it been for you since you’ve moved to your new house? Please let me know!
I wear acrylic nails so that when if I scratch my skin it does less damage! Sometimes I am afraid that people think I’m vain having my nails done so often but these babies are actually a medical necessity for me! It’s an important preventative measure that has helped me for years. I’ve found a pretty great affordable place to get them done about every two to three weeks in Los Angeles.
my poor body,
i see you
in flakes of snow
to save me
from this world.
will be better—
biotin and derma
like creased fabric.
and swell with warmth.
the wincing face
of the crumbling monster
they passed on the street.
