‘Skin disease is one of the most minimised conditions you can have,’ she maintains…Because skin disease, unlike most internal illness, is immediately visible, many people feel themselves being stared at, or worse. Complete strangers feel they have the right to comment and ask what the problem is….’If people could think every time they have just one pimple on their face how bad they feel walking down the street, then imagine what it is like to have an illness running out of control. There is so much more we need to learn.’

I’m going through the eczema tag and it makes me feel so much more comforted that I’m not alone and that there’s such a good support network in tumblr for us sufferers. I’ve had a terrible flare up on my face but just reading the words of encouragement in the eczema tag has put a huge smile on my face.

We can do this guys!

Yaaay!

Hello again.
I thought I’d re-start with something positive this summer. Go, get out in the sun (if you have any).  Your skin doesn’t make you any less deserving of summer fun.

Q
I thought it might be worth it to mention a cream that's worked well for me is Aveeno Eczema cream and while it may just seem like a moisturizer upon first time use after a few nights it's literally cleared my whole face up without steroid creams and prevented flare ups.

Hi itswboy!

Nice! That’s awesome to hear you found something that works :). Definitely worth trying. I’m always using this coconut moisturizer from my local health food store. I’ve something I’ve been using for over a decade now! I also use the Vanicream line of moisturizers. But its good to chafe up moisturizers sometimes so that the skin doesn’t get used to it. At least mine. It’s like it gets bored or something!

Thanks for sharing!

Q
I'm so glad I found this blog. Just what I needed to help me heal myself! I've been trying to improve my eating habits drastically because I honestly believe poor eating habits are the cause of my eczema. Only people suffering with eczema will understand the pain of someone with it. Hopefully I, my self am able to cure my eczema. :)

Hi balance-andhealth!

Thanks so much for writing. So sorry about the delayed reply! Have been so busy lately :). But its good, my skin has been allowing me to be busy! I’m so touched to hear that you found the blog helpful. How is the progress going for you? Hope you’ve found some relief. I too believe diet is everything in healing eczema! When our skin is bad its trying to tell us something about the rest of our health!
