Re: Living With Eczema: Raise Awareness By Telling Your Eczema Story

Tyler Corella ·
I’ve suffered from eczema, along with asthma for my entire life due to extreme prematurity. I’ve always found it to be quite a nuisance, but especially more so once I entered HighSchool. I mainly suffer with eczema on my arms and legs. It took going through so many different medications to find what didn’t burn my skin, or make it itch a thousand times worse, and as a young kid, that impulse control was non-existent to the point where my arms would be cracked with blood. Luckily, it’s gotten...

#MyEczemaStory Since childhood, I’ve suffered from Eczema. This skin allergy looks like a rash. Also each section of the skin itches. Medicine is the only way, to treat Eczema. This skin allergy appears on my, arms, thighs and legs. When it’s warm outside I wear, capris plus light jackets. To cover up my Eczema from others. As always very appreciative to share my story! Through the, AAFA, what would I do without this organization? I’m sure other patients strongly feel, this way!

I am getting horrible eczema under my hands. So horrific that some days I can infrequently put my arms down. Normally whilst it’s extremely cold outside. I’ve searched for something to help with the flare-ups for years and not anything helps apart from a really expensive steroid cream the dr gave me. Until I found Foderma eczema treatment serum!! It actually soothes and clears a flare-up overnight. I couldn’t live without it

Re: These Symptoms of Atopic Dermatitis Can Be the Most Frustrating

StuffywithCare ·
Hi. I was unaware that atopic dermatitis has the symptom of sleep disturbance. Is the sleep problem due to the discomfort caused by the other symptoms or is the sleep problem a separate symptom? My 21-year-old has a small amount of eczema and he has trouble sleeping. He has never blamed the eczema for his sleep problems. Could there be a connection? Thank you.

Hi @StuffywithCare , thanks for your blog comment! It's possible that there is a connection. Have you mentioned his sleep issues to his doctor? Here's an article from the American Academy of Dermatology that may answer some of your questions. Although the article is targeted to parents of small children, the information is relevant for anyone with eczema. The article also mentions, " When eczema itches, it can keep a child awake or wake the child from a sound sleep." What Can Help a Child...

Nothing has touched my insanely dry and itchy bout with eczema-like foderma eczema serum. No pain applying to broken skin and almost clear by morning. Even the prescription stuff does not give these results!

Re: More Than Asthma: Financial Impact

Nancy W ·
I use Advair 250/50 to control my asthma. The cost of this inhaler, even the generic one is over a hundred dollars. By the time rent , recurring bills and food are paid for I’m lucky to afford 5 of my 7 medications let alone all 7! Prices are out of control! Pricing for drugs must be affordable. I have gone months without my asthma medication and it is very scary!

K8sMom2002 ·
Hi, Nancy, I hear you on how expensive it can be to afford the meds you need to breathe. AAFA has a Patient Assistance Page listing several programs that may help you. Are you on a commercial or employee based insurance? Or are you on Medicare? Also, generic versions of Advair have been approved: GSK, Maker of ADVAIR DISKUS®, Announces Authorized Generic FDA Approves First Generic ADVAIR DISKUS® for Asthma Treatment Can you talk to your pharmacist to see if this generic might be available...
