Great Valentine's Day Tips! 💖💘💓💌 Yes. Be thoughtful and have a healthy holiday! A book of poetry and a cozy blanket that is safe would be great! A nice mug and a box of herb tea. A sweater that is safe to wear. A pair of slippers is always nice and comforting! For folks that are home bound, how about an adult coloring book and some colored pencils? A nice picture frame that has a picture of you and your sweetie in it! Have a Happy Valentine's Day! 😍
I love those ideas, AAFA and Deb! There are so many cool (non-traditional) gift options out there that can be fun to celebrate and dont bother asthma/allergies: video games, board games, DVDs, or books also make great gifts.
Hi Marcia - I'm using the mild dish soap that I have at my kitchen sink. I know that doesn't bother my hands too much. Do you have an eczema care plan that you've used in the past? I'm finding I need to moisturize and then put a barrier on. I hate my hands feeling sticking, so I'm trying to use the lighter moisturizer during the day and the heavier stuff at night. The N ational Eczema Association has a seal that products earn that are good for eczema.
@Maku @Marcia Z Ball When I tell you what helped me so much you’re gonna kick yourself. So last week I noticed I had the skin peeling in between my fingers, on top of my hands, on the underside of my hand (my open palm) on the tips of my fingers ... just everywhere! I will attach a pic. It doesn’t look terrible bc I caught it at the beginning bc I can’t take it. I noticed tht when I wash my hands or used hand sanitizer they would burn from the small cuts. I went out and bought Lubriderm. $5...
Hi TexasBreakfastTacos - that looks miserable It sounds like you have tried your usual arsenal of treatments to try to treat and protect your hands. Do you use a "soak and seal" wet wrap on your hands?
As soon as corona started and I started using these santizers I started getting really bad eczema.. its been 2 months my hands feel like rocks. It’s soo painful and itchy. Im going to try using the moisturizing tips, hope they help. Ezcema can be soo annoying i never knew.
Welcome Zara - sorry your eczema has been so bad from using hand sanitizers. Is it better if you can wash your hands instead? Or is the extra handwashing irritating as well? I hope the moisturizing tips help!
The main source to avoid the transmission of the coronavirus is to wash hands with sanitizers or soaps. But what if people with skin disease do? Good to know that the blog helps people with eczema, a skin disease where patches of skin becomes inflamed, itchy, cracked, and rough. This blog helped me to know about how people with this type of skin disease might find it difficult to use sanitizers or soaps for washing hands. Thank you for sharing such an informative blog. I would like to know...
Hi, the article was so useful to me. I have a question I'll be thankful if you answer." Is it okay to use creamy soaps for my hand eczema? I'm not sure if they can kill the new Corona virus as they includes lot of moisturizer and oil. I'll be thankful for your answer in advanced.
Hi Mastaneh and welcome. Soap helps break down the sticky bond between the virus and your hand. That's one reason you need to wash for 20 seconds - to give the soap time to work to break those bonds so the virus can be rinsed away with the soap. Can you use a plain but mild soap then apply moisturizer after patting your hands dry?
Hey, First of all thank you for replying. You know I'm living in Iran and here some factories produce creamy soaps. My doctor prescribed me these creamy soaps but it was before Coronavirus I stopped using it cause I thought maybe they can't kill the virus and also I don't trust iranian produces.
I see you mention that you are in Iran. I'm not familiar with what might be available there. Since your doctor recommended the creamy soap, can you follow up to see what else they might recommend as far as an effective soap plus a moisturizer to use after washing?
Its ridiculous that MD do have no protection for our childern. My daugther has asthma bad especially in September this year it was the 1st day. Plus yes our school systems is so not right. They failed my baby 2 two but over turned the last one. Then last year ask if she wants to go in her correct grade in October no this should of been offered before school started. Crazy no implenations or help.
Hello Godmyfour. Welcome to these community discussions where very difficult questions can be asked and where smart and compassionate people share their best answers. My own children are past school but I can imagine how hard it is for you to send yours to school with so much uncertainty. I guess for me the first thing to know is what IS the COVID plan at my school? Is it the best available? What are school staff doing at your children's school? Are you satisfied you know how to play your...
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!
Lakia, thank you for sharing! I'm using your comment to start a new thread on our community so that you can get more eyes on your comment and maybe see how other people are working to improve their eczema.
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
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!
