Hi Im toffeechoc, female, already 22 years old, residing in the Philippines. I've been suffering from recurring atopic dermatitis since I was a child. The fact that I have had this recurring skin disorder.. I am already familiar with all the preventions and treatments that have to be done except for one thing. every after treatment it left my skin particularly my legs with ''dark marks''. It's very annoying and makes me very uncomfortable wearing my favorite dress.. I can't even wear shorts or skirts in public it's very embarrassing. Are there any tips that u can give me or any prescribed creams or lotions that I can use?
Hello I have suffered from Atopic Dermatitis since the age of 14 and I am now 50..it has worsened over the past 3 years..after some research into allergies..related to foods...I had been tested many years ago for food allergies and learned that I was allergic to chocolate,citrus,dairy, dust, cats and pollen...unbeknownst to me many products i have been consuming at fast food eateries etc had many other things that I should not be consuming including soy and wheat in the middle of October I stopped consuming everything that even had a trace of wheat, soy, dairy, chocolate and citrus...my atopic dermatitis was gone in a week...my skin is still healing from the rash i had on my neck and arms but I a healed! in addition I had begun to have uncontrollable coughing spells, and shortness of breath it is all gone...yeah no more creams or pills...if I were told by a dr long ago I would have not spent over half of my life suffering...I am happy I found my own cure.
as far as your skin healing it will my chest was full of rash at least 4 years ago after eating pizza yes...knowingly...lol...it healed in about 9 to 12 mos...let your body do what its suppose to do 'heal itself'...more creams etc..may not agree with you...i find that it helps you to appreciate the seriousness of your condition...you will think twice before indulging..
my daughter was suffering from this last year. i think it started with using fabric softeners but the derma didn't believe me. the more you scratch the faster it spreads. she used a steroid cream which seemed to work at first but later had no effect. it got so bad we kept going to the derma but nothing worked. i decided to try this supplement i was drinking. it is called quantum plus here in manila. it did not look like it was working at first but we just kept at it. i persevered cause it was an answer to prayer. after a month of putting it everyday(we apply everytime it gets itchy)it became so much better and 2 months after almost all gone. it is a miracle! it is good becuase all natural. my daughter is 15 yrs old and i don't want her to be using steroids . i have to share this as a thanksgiving and to help others who are suffering with eczema. i know how difficult it is. God bless! i pray and hope it works for you.
You should go to a good dermatologist and have your checkup. I'm giving you some precautions of which you can take care.
1. Protecting hands against harsh soaps, cleansers, and other chemicals by wearing gloves.
2. Using an automatic dishwasher as much as possible.
3. Using lukewarm water and a mild soap when washing the hands, and always apply a dermatologist-recommended ointment or cream immediately after washing.
4. To keep hands soft and supple, apply the dermatologist-recommended product frequently throughout the day.
5. When outdoors in cool weather, wear gloves to prevent dry, chapped skin.
