It could be from allergens, pollution, contaminates, etc.. but eczema is caused by you body being in an acidic state. I used steroid cream for 30 years until I found this out and got my ph balanced. I haven't had it since.

Pegotty: sorry I disappeared. Lots going on regarding reduction of stress

Um I had a TINY spot of eczema on my leg while I lived in Austin years ago. I treated it and it never came back- until I moved to Houston... and yes, it was right away.

I did move here in the Spring and have always experienced bad allergic reactions in the Spring but never skin reactions to this extent.

My mom had severe eczema on her foot for years. She has tried countless creams which haven't helped at all and contain toxic ingredients (just say NO to Lamisil!). About 3 years ago, she began applying Milk of Magnesia to the affected area and it has been the only thing that has worked. If she starts to see the beginning of a breakout, she sleeps with it on her foot and the next morning it's gone.

I've suffered with severe ezcema my entire life. When i lived in Colorado, it would come in thick itchy patches in certain parts mainly because if the dry air. When i moved to Houston, it seemed that it had spread all over in areas i never had it before and areas i never thought i could get it (on the palms of my hands and soles of the foot).

I've got it managed for now but it never "completely" goes away, and usually flares up and comes back to repeat the cycle. I never miss a day without a shower and afterwards i hydrate my skin very well and use steroid creams to reduce the inflammation. I know that steroid creams are said to cause problems but its the only thing that will losen the firm grip that eczema has on me. When it calms down, i enjoy the relief and i will stop use, until it wakes up and raises its ugly head, then i have to start use again. It's a cycle i will battle until the day i die.

things i've found helpful,

Dove Soap or Aveeno Soap Bar
Aveeno lotion
Triamcynalone (prescription)
Halobetosol
stoneclaw/C2H(ComingtoHouston)

Default excema issues

I hate hearing about anyone who suffers from excema. I have done alot of experimenting and it is frustrating cause you never know who to believe or maybe what works for you may not for someone else, but don't give up trying healthful things. Most of it is cheap and wont hurt you like a lot of meds. I know some have asked me how I got mine under control and I hope it works for them. If something that helped me can possibly help someone else I'd be glad to tell them in a pm. Good luck to everyone.
