Dyshidrotic Eczema? .free. 2 kids; Arkansas 36040 posts

What that article describes is exactly what I have on my wedding ring finger right now. It starts as small little flesh colored bumped that are filled with a liquid. Then it's so itchy I scratch them and it pops, then it turns into cracking itchy red skin :(




I had eczema when I was a teenager except it was on my forearms and basically just really dry skin.



Ever since the coating on my wedding ring started coming off, it has flared up what I believe is eczema on my ring finger. It comes and goes but never fully gets better. I have no idea what to do.
I'm stressed out from moving so I think that's why it's flaring up more now(that wiki article says it can be caused by stress.



Does anyone know of ANYTHING I can put on this to try to help me out? I can't go to the doctor. I've tried hydrocortizone and that does nothing. I'm currently putting Aquaphor on it but that only really helps with the dryness, not with the itching or anything like that :( It hurts to bad and I can't bend my finger. :?

Neosporin eczema anti itch cream. My dd gets it so bad on her face that it cracks and bleeds but since we have been using this cream her flare ups are like nothing.

I have the exact same eczema on my palms. It's flared up as I type.



I haven't tried anything other than hydrocortisone (helps a little). There is a prescription cream that works well, but it's VERY expensive, I haven't bought it in years.

I'll have to go look for this. I looked in the "anti itch" section of walmart but I didn't see anything besides hydrocortizone :(



I couldn't imagine having this on my face, I'm miserable enough with it on my hand.

I'm trying to look up treatments on google but I keep getting "it has no cure and will most likely come back", fantastic :?

I know :( Mine clears up for a few weeks, then it's back! I've also noticed it's spreading a little. The area on my palm is bigger then it was a few years ago.

Luckily mine hasn't spread *fingers crossed*
I'm gonna go out when DH gets home and try to find that Neosporin Eczema Essentials stuff the other poster said. It seems to have awesome reviews.

I also had it on my face growing up but grew out of it after my second pregnancy. It was awful. I tried so many different creams and things on dd but nothing worked like this. It's a hydrocortizon cream also but for some reason this one works much better than all the other hydrocortizon creams we tried. They also sell the whole eczema kit.

Hmm, it must have something else in it too then. It says its a "dual action" formula or something along those lines

Try CapriClear. It's a an all natural moisturizer that is great for eczema related skin conditions. I use it all the time and it works fantastic for me. You can now get it at Ulta Stores.

In my opinion, you just need a natural remedy for your skin. It would be save for your skin. You don't have to worry about chemical ingredients. There are various methods and ingredients that would be suitable for your eczema example: virgin coconut oil, Apply vitamin E, aloe vera gel, Make a tea of calendula, a marigold flower, with drops of lavender essential oil added, then apply to the affected area twice a day until the irritation is relieved. A more complete understanding of the remedies and solutions can be found in the following link: http://www.vanisheczema.com/
