Your Questions About Eczema

Charles asks…

Begging for help with dermatitis atopic… please?

I’m 15 yrs old.

I’ve been to tons of dermatological doctors and experts and seriously no one seems to give a straight answer other than prescribe me to some moisturizers and some topical steroids or such. Currently I’m using Avene Cold Cream 2x a day after I take my shower and I live in Indonesia.

I’m sick and tired of this skin disease. My parents look at me sometimes as if I’m some kind of disgusting freak while on the other side I’m rather thankful that my heavy eczema might not be as worse as other people out there. I’ve never met anyone else who has the same problem as me and sometimes I do wonder what my friends think of me.

So please, I’m begging anyone if they have any solutions that might work… I’m seriously begging. This has been driving me nuts for 15 years and I seriously have no one to talk to about this. My parents don’t even believe me how hard I am trying not to scratch and believe that I am just “not trying hard enough” and someone who doesn’t care about my skin. Believe me, I do. My skin is brown, full of hair, scars and scratches and I’m a girl. It’s driving me insane.

Recommend you find the triggers that are setting off your eczema.
Also, look for other products that will help you.
I can recommend Salcura Intensive spray.
We use Salcura on our son, knocked out the itch the first day of use, inflammation started healing immediately as well, three days later was 20% of what it was.

Donald asks…

am i allowed to get a hot rock massage?

Hi, i was wondering if i am able to get a hot rock massage because i heard from a video i was watching that if anyone who has a skin diseases should not get one. but all i have i Eczema in my left hand and there is not really that much there, and it barely ever gets bad as some do i hear.

this was the video i was talking about: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WtDh985Wv5U
PS: this video might relax you

here is some information on what i have in my left hand: https://health.google.com/health/ref/Eczema

admin answers:

Usually it would refer to someone with a contagious skin disease, or one with broken or open skin. (As long as the area isn’t bleeding, red, or inflamed) You should be fine to get a hot stone, if you are concerned about it irritating your skin, consult your dermatologist first. You may also want to check with the therapist about what type of oil or lotion they use (so it doesn’t irritate your skin) and just inform that that you have eczema, it isn’t contagious, but if they would just like to avoid that hand you could receive massage elsewhere. Hope this answer helps! Here are 2 links so you can learn more about what may help your condition.

Steven asks…

Nipple rash, Eczema or Paget’s Disease???

I have had the itchy, red, scaling, rash on my nipple and around my areola for about 4 years now. This last breakout has lasted for approximately 4 months STRAIGHT. My bra sticks to my nipple and when I take it off, it peels off the top layer of skin from the oozing getting stuck to it. It is MISERABLE but only on the areola and nipple. Could this be pagets disease? Has anyone else been diagnosed with Paget’s?

admin answers:

Without knowing anything about your history, I would suggest that you visit your doctor or at least a local medical clinic so that you may have a breast examination and mammogram. I must admit that your symptoms do sound an awful lot like pagets disease, although its possible that you just have a glandular infection. See you doctor soon to alleviate your fears, and in the meantime use a warm damp cloth on your breast to soothe your pain and itching.
I wish you the best.

Betty asks…

I need a Doctor’s opinion – possible Cushings Disease?

Ok this is a long story but I’ll try and keep it short…..

In August last year (2008) I was wrongly diagnosed with PCOS, based on elevated androgen levels. However, after ultrasound scans it has been confirmed that my ovaries are fine, and that I do not have PCOS. Only found this out a few weeks ago.

Since then I have had a test for DHEA – normal.

I am a nurse so I have a little knowledge, and have been doing some research. My symptoms are:

difficulty losing weight
central obesity
depression/anxiety
elevated androgens
mild hirsutism (upper lip, stomach)
recent flare-up of eczema
dry skin (cracked, sore and itchy in some areas periodically)
increased apetite
although i have a normal menstrual cycle at present, my period stopped for 3 months in the summer of last year (2008)

My GP is, quite frankly, useless. I have asked about non-classic adrenal hyperplasia, but since my DHEA is normal I think this rules this out. I am planning to see him next monday – and I am going to ask for a referal to an endocrinologist.

I just need some answers. I am thinking of Cushing’s Disease, but it is so rare I wonder whether it is possible.

Could someone who knows what they are talking about please help x

admin answers:

Yes I would agree, see an endocrinologist, but I was thinking you have a thyroid issue. Also ask the doctor to test your thyroid.
