Your Questions About Eczema

Steven asks…

What are the causes of body itching and very small wounds appear when scratched?

I noticed small bumps on my chest and lower back about a week ago. Everytime I’d scratch it, I would get very small wounds, like a needle puncture, and it would itch more. I tried taking anti- allergy medicine, but it didn’t work. Help please.

admin answers:

Allergy, eczema or insect bites.
Have you tried antihistamine cream on the rash?
If it doesn’t clear up or gets worse you must show it to your doctor.

How to get rid of really bad dry skin?

The back of my neck is really dry lately (cause its really cold where I live). I use to have bad eczema when i was younger so that’s another reason why its so dry I guess. How can I contain moisture? I feel as if I have to keep on reapplying lotion every 10 minutes.

admin answers:

Use a good facial moisturizer. Apply the moisturizer to your dry skin each morning and after each shower you take. Drink a lot if water to keep your body and skin hydrated. A good remedy for dry skin is to mash a half of an Avocado and 1 teaspoon of limejuice and spread onto cleansed skin. Let stand for about 15-20 minutes and rinse with both warm and cold water.

Good luck!

Sandy asks…

How can I get rid of pesky zits?

I admit, I pick a lot and I have darker skin, therefore my pimples start to scar and stay for a longer time. Don’t tell me not to pick, cause there’s no way I’m just leaving that shit on my face.

admin answers:

Use some toothpaste on them. Here are some tips that might be helpful:
1) Tea Tree Oil
2) Lemon juice
3) Apple cider vinegar
4) Bamboo extract or Sarna lotion – good for rosacea, psoriasis, eczema
5) Bio Oil or BB cream for dark spots or scars

Applied lemon juice or apple cider vinegar to face or you can drink it through using it in water a few drops a day. Will help with both acne, and scars as well. Another way you can get rid of acne is by taking bamboo extract something I started when I had the problem really does work. Hope this works for you.

OR: Here are seven best methods to clear up blemishes.

Tea-Tree Oil
Tea tree oil is a popular home remedy for acne. An essential oil is diluted and applied topically to acne lesions. How is tea tree oil believed to work? Tea tree oil contains a constituent called terpinen-4-ol that’s thought to be responsible for most of tea tree oil’s anti-bacterial activity. Because tea tree oil can kill bacteria, applying topical tea tree oil to acne lesions is believed to kill Propionibacterium acnes, the skin-dwelling bacteria involved in acne.To treat mild, occasional breakouts.
How it works: Distilled from the leaves of an Australian shrub, tea-tree oil contains antibacterial and anti-microbial compounds called terpenoids that help kill the bacteria that, when trapped behind oil in a plugged pore, lead to acne breakouts. Try Burt’s Bees Herbal Blemish Stick ($8, burtsbees.com). A roller-ball tube makes for easy application.Studies testing tea-tree oil against the gold-standard acne treatment, benzoyl peroxide, have shown that while the latter works more quickly, tea-tree oil is equally effective over time. And it results in fewer annoying side effects—namely, dryness and redness.

Sulfur
If you have sensitive skin.
How it works: A time-tested, gentle acne fighter, sulfur “acts like a sponge to draw oil out of blocked pores,”. This dries up pimples and keeps sebum production in check, helping to prevent future blemishes. Sulfur has a distinct smell—think rotten eggs. Most preparations that use it contain a masking fragrance. However, to play it safe (and avoid scaring off coworkers), apply these products at night.

Salicylic Acid
To treat and soothe red, inflamed blemishes.Salicylic acid can have a calming, anti-inflammatory effect on pimples. “It also breaks down the ‘cement’ between cells in clogged pores to help unplug them,”
Salicylic acid is less irritating than more potent treatments, so it may be better for those with dry skin. It also tends to work well on stubborn blackheads.

Retinoids
Nightly to prevent breakouts.
How they work: Retinoids, which include over-the-counter retinol and prescription-strength Retin-A, reduce acne by altering the oil chemistry on the skin. “They help stop dense sebum from getting stuck within the pores,” says Gross. Without oil deposits, bacteria can’t grow and cause blemishes. Since retinoids can make skin sensitive to the sun, doctors recommend using them at night (and being diligent about wearing sunscreen during the day). To avoid irritation, apply every other evening to start, gradually working up to nightly use. Bonus benefit: Retinoids have been shown to increase collagen production and plump fine lines, making them a good choice if you’re dealing with acne and wrinkles.

Blue-Light Therapy
If you want the latest preventive treatment—and don’t mind plunking down some cash for it.
How it works: Once or twice a week, you use a handheld device to aim a beam of blue light onto your skin. “Its wavelength hits and kills acne-causing bacteria,” so any brewing pimples never come to the surface.This method will not address existing blemishes. Doctors typically suggest combining blue-light therapy with other remedies, such as topical treatments. To make things easy, consider a blue-light device that comes in a kit. At-home devices are smart alternatives to multiple costly treatments at a doctor’s office.

Oral Antibiotics
If you experience painful bumps below the skin surface and your pimples leave lasting marks. “Oral antibiotics act from the inside to kill the bacteria that cause acne,” says Keri. They also reduce the inflammation associated with pimples, so deep-seated blemishes hurt less and leave fewer scars.

Doctors usually prescribe them to get a severe condition under control and may then switch to topical treatments. Some antibiotics must be taken on an empty stomach, so read the label carefully.

Paul asks…

I have eczema around my eyes and the dermatologist recommended a mild steroid, does it cause wrinkles?

The dermatologist told me that the topical mild steroid would thin my skin out, does’nt that make it more propense to wrinkles?

admin answers:

The eczema causes wrinkles by thickening the skin. It gets better when the eczema gets better. Steroids can cause thinning of the skin so use it no longer than you are told. To avoid wrinkles use a UVA blocking sunscreen daily no matter the weather.

Mark asks…

Michael asks…

What is causing my dry, irritated skin after a shower or long sleep?

Hey. I’m a 23 year old, white, male living in the UK.

Since around 5 years old I’ve had mild (sometimes moderate) eczema on the folds of my arms which comes and goes. I don’t mind that so much because it’s quite easy to keep under control/ hide, but since I turned 17/ 18, certain areas on my face has become extremely dry and sensitive and I feel like I’ve tried absolutely everything, to no avail.

The problem areas:

Eyelids/ undereye- Usually always dry, the most itchy of all the dry patches. Usually always pinkish/ red.

Nose: Dry all around the sides/ nostril area, red at the fold between nose/ cheek. This is a spot prone area.

Eyebrow: The arch between each eyebrow is usually red and irritated looking. Mildly itchy at times and again, a spot prone area.

Scalp and hairline: Constantly dry, the hairline and behind my ears are a flaky kind of dryness and I’m prone to moderate dandruff on occasion.

Forehead: always dry and whenever it’s irritated, 3 or 4 deep wrinkles will appear. This area is somewhat spot prone and when moisturised…either gets oily or just doesn’t absorb the moisturiser at all. I can’t tell 😛

Hair: Is dryer than anything. Two days after a shower it’s managable, but on the day of a shower it is RIDICULOUSLY dry, brittle and coarse. Whether using a gentle baby- shampoo or one of those sls-free ones. I can leave coconut oil or any kind of conditioner in overnight and when I wash it out, it’s exactly the same kind of dryness as before. I haven’t dyed my hair in over a year and any coloured hair has long since grown-out. It’s naturally somewhere wavy if that helps (when it’s not a dry bush).

With the exception of the nose/ hairline area, the other irritated areas (inluding the arm fold) have small itchy lumps that weep a clear fluid when popped/ broken. I suspect this is histamine… but when taking anti-histamines, there are no noticeable changes 🙁

Now, I’ve noticed two consistent triggers for these problems… having a shower (whether lukewarm or hot and even when using non fragranced body wash/ using sls- free shampoo) and on days where I ‘over-sleep’ say from 12am- 12pm or something silly like that.

I’ve noticed that my skin complexion/ texture is always best when I haven’t had a shower in like 2 or 3 days and then when I DO shower or bathe, it’s right back to irritated dry skin/ hair again.

I moisturise my skin often, but the only one that helps to smooth out the dry areas is clinique’s Anti-redness daily relief cream. But that gives me very angry spots in the irritated areas I mentioned above. I’ve tried cetaphil, eucerin, aveeno, E45, vaseline etc and none of them work for me.

I’ve also had a chlorine filter on the shower for the past two months, yet the problems still persist.

Sorry if this is a bit long winded, I’ve just never met another person with the kind of facial/ hair nuisances that I have.

Thanks in advance, Andrew.

H i i was suffering extremly bad dry skin on the face.It was much the same as you describe.I started to use aqueous cream which is only 2.40 in tescos.You can wash your face in it (and in your case shower with it in place of shower gel)When finished washing smooth some more of the cream into your body and face (do face twice a day).When it first goes on it looks like its not going to sink into the skin but after 5mins it disappears.With regular use your problems should have greatly improved.Since i have been using it my hair is a lot more oily so i think somehow putting it on my face somehow goes into the scalp and hair.You can get this cream in chemists also but prices vary but shouldn’t be more than £4.I don’t use anything else now as its cheap and it works.Hope this has been helpful.Good luck.
