Allergy Alert!

July 9th, 2014

Here are some photos of the dyshidrotic eczema on my right foot (the injured one) and atopic dermatitis on my arms and legs.

Unfortunately the night before these photos were taken was horrible–I was up all night itching and trying very hard not to scratch but ultimately failing at that…Until that night I was taking Allegra 24 hour allergy pills daily in tandem with Flonase nasal spray by prescription from my allergist.  570 more words

Dyshidrotic Eczema Begins...

I have experienced eczema flares for several years now and I usually know what to expect.  Patches of dry skin and small itchy red bumps on the insides of my elbows and the backs of my upper arms that pop up at the onset of spring and summer, extra dry hands and feet during the winter, and thankfully nothing when fall comes along.  1,934 more words

I have very sensitive, eczema prone skin.  I used to think this was because of some mysterious ingredient in my skincare products that I could never seem to isolate.   534 more words

The Wound That Started It All

I have exceptionally sensitive skin and many allergies, including an allergy to adhesives, such asthose found on bandages and bandage tape.  Therefore any time I get an injury that requires covering I have to resort to old fashioned bandaging with gauze padding, plenty of gauze rolls, etc and I have to make sure that NO adhesive comes in contact with my skin, even through a thin layer of gauze.  2,834 more words
