Uhm, idk how to start, but yeah, my dad has skin problems since he lost his job. He doesn't seem to be 'stressed' out but I know he is. It wasn't much of a problem until beginning of this year, his skin start to itch whenever he eats smtg that might be an allergen or maybe not. Until now me and my mom still can't find out why is this happening to him. My dad has consulted a few doctors and even dermatologists on his skin problem and none of them seem to be able to help him. One of them diagnosed him with eczema, and another said he has some fungus-follicle infection? My mom has been looking up for some remedies for him and some of them provided temporary relief and some doesn't. His skin has blisters when there is itch and eruption, and now his hands, legs, scalp, sides of the face are badly scarred and still itching and blistering. He applies vitamin E whenever it itches to moist it and stop the itch, but it may last only a few minutes to an hr or so. He applies some cream called moogoo, doesn't seem to help, and a controlled medicinal cream, called protopic, which has a side effect of skin cancer but seemed to provide temporary relief to his skin problems. I really hope someone out here, whether a doctor, skin specialist, or someone who had similar problem and found the cure can help my dad.
PS: are fishes possible allergens? Nuts, beer, and egg? If there's someone here who's kind enough, please give me a list of possible things that could've triggered my dad's terrible skin problem. I would really appreciate your help so so much! Please answer me thanks lots

Re: Help

I had eczma that was the typical text book case. I even taped my fingers at night to try to keep from scratching my itching. This happened in 1970 and was due to stress in my life. I took tar baths and just went to bed and rested for two weeks. Stress can and will bring out the weakness in our body. Hope this helps.
