Hi I'm new to healthypages and would like some advice on eczema. i am 21 and have suffered my whole life with eczema. It was at its worst whilst i was pregnant and although it is now not as bad it hasn't gone down since. normally i will go through stages where it is bad and then it will clear, normally down to stress ... but this time round it hasn't and is really annoying me now. I have had all the steroid creams and ointments under the sun along with the non steroid creams from the doctor. I have also tried coconut oil and nothing seems to help. It is very sore and is making my skin very tight. It feels like my skin is sweating its that hot but its not. (don't know if this makes sense). PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE can someone suggest something for me? I'm so desperate i would even be happy if i just have none dry itchy skin for just one day i just need a break from this nightmare.
