eczema on face

I have had severe eczema on face since i have moved to a more humid enviorment.
When I sweat I break out even more.

I have tried a strong steriod cream to no avail and i get steriod shots weekly.
I have allergies to Dust mites but keep my house very very clean and keep the humidity low and cool.

I have run out of hope...

Re: eczema on face

I have dealt with this on and off for decades. Right now it's in remission.
Eczema, seborrhea and psoriasis are common autoimmune disorders of the skin. The only one that I have not yet contracted is psoriasis (thank God)

Since you get steriod shots weekly, I am assuming you see doctor. And in that case, you should really find out as much as you can from him.

Re: eczema on face

I've had this problem all my life. Protopic ointment used at night has made a huge difference for me. Try to find a good dermatologist... most docs don't get chronic eczema at all! Hang in there... I know how frustrating it is.
