I'm not a counsellor or aniyhtng so I'm not really qualified to answer this but I went through a similar stage as a teenager. I would probably recommend accessing a school a counsellor if there's one available; they are trained to deal with this sort of stuff, will keep all information confidential and they won't laugh or be judgmental or aniyhtng. It may take a bit of courage to do this but I'm sure it could help. Other than that, I'd recommend seeing what local clubs are available which may look interesting. It could be an opportunity to get a new hobby and you might make new friends.I wouldn't worry too much about masturbating a lot, it's totally normal for a kid your age to masturbate loads. I'd also say that online relationships are never really satisfying in the way a normal relationship is the internet is no real replacement for face to face contact.You may find, like I did, that you'll suddenly have a lot more of a social life when you go to college, as there are more opportunities, so don't worry too much if you don't have loads of friends before you get there.It sounds like you're being really hard on yourself don't be. You'll find that a lot of 'popular' people actually have mostly superficial relationships with people it's the quality of friends that counts, not the quantity. Some people are naturally less outgoing than others and you should not regard yourself as 'wrong' or screwed up in some way.Like I say, I went through a similar stage to yours; obviously it was crap at the time but I now look back on it and realise that it was a normal part of growing up.Hope this rambling answer helps a bit.

I am not a medical pfnoessioral and from my experience most medical pfnoessiorals would disagree but I think absolutely YES! In have done plenty of research on issues such as this and it seems like pure logic to me. If you have put something foreign in your body, your body will try to process and get rid of what it can not use. It does this through your organs. Your skin is the largest organ you have and helps to detox the body as well as the liver and kidneys etc. If your body is trying to push poison out through your skin, your skin would show signs of being irritated. Same goes with allergies. If your body is busy fighting off poisons, it has less ability to fight off or cope with anything else like pollen or milk or whatever you may be allergic to and therefore causes allergies.The best thing that I am aware of that someone could do for their baby in this situation is to keep anything foreign or unnatural away from the child and give the child the best chance to process the vaccine and eliminate it from the body.

on the bottle it stops the itch from stuff, so i friuged i'd give it a shot and the itch stops for hours and hours a lot better than that prescription. and since it doesnt itch it's a lot less red and starting to go away a lot fasteer (seemingly) than the prescription cream as well. so give that a try.

Sudden dry skin can be triggered by stress, although this stress which triggered the dry skin may not be immediately affecting your life, stress experienced in the past weeks to months prior to the skin condition can result in dry skin!


Best solution?
1) don't let your skin experience dryness (best choice: dab dry your skin while still behind closed curtains or closed shower door, and reach out grab a GOOD MOISTURIZING CREAM (good as in: not scented (as scented can hide poor quality ingredients) My fav: CETAPHIL MOISTURIZING CREAM (comes in a 20 oz. jar) its the best I've tried and I've spent $1000's on every kind I can find, it's steroid free and fragrance free!

Note: do not use foaming beauty products as foaming irritates the skin, u cannot see it but on a microscopic level it causes your skin conditions to flare!

Also: If u can avoid it? Shower every other day, and DON'T RUB TOO HARD your skin with cloths or those gloves! Best time to rid those scaly and flaky skin is the shower, do it after standing under warm shower for about 5 mins, then just grab a wash cloth and gently in a circular pattern very Gently Rub your skin starting from one side of your limbs to the other side, no need to repeat, if first day it doesn't shed don't over do, finish your shower and use a gentle soap preferably: PH NEUTRAL (yves rocher) makes many beautiful frangranced soaps all PH neutral and cost??? $3-4 CAD! Not bad 250 mL

2.)And after u are done shower yes stay in that shower dab and moisturize and then just hop out of shower and stand there buck bare or put on a light bath robe! Getting dressed ASAP will irritate your newly revealed soft Skin** (which from warm shower/bath to rubbing cream it's irritated... So give it a few moments, apply your face moisturizers and dry your hair, now get dressed!
**jeans will def upset the new skin, it may be uneven skin. But it's getting there! Just don't rush it!
*** beauty tip: get those nice $5 moisturizing gloves (u put them on after u rub cream on your hands and it keeps all the cream from getting on the bed sheets and wake to soft skin!

This routine should help relieve many of your symptoms and within 1 week u should be smooth and sleek! RULE: u can never be too moisturized! Just cuz symptoms go away? Doesnt mean u get to slack off! Always keeps this routine and u will experience smooth non-irritated skin and yes I've gotten this routine from a dermatologist so best wishes to all who suffers from eczema and various dry skin conditions

It's kept my skin from reliving this vicious cycle! And try to do relaxing things it can definitely help! Stress is often the trigger! I know this cuz I have intentionally exposed myself to stress in attempt to trigger the eczema as to determine if my dr was for real! Lol he was! Identifying what stresses u can be a good start! Be it rushed mornings to hectic night schedule with kids!

DOB : 08/04/1983 (u can do the math on my age) my name is Yan Yan, hope I helped those of u suffering from itchy skin!

Eucerin doesn't work at all for me.

Top of pagePrevious messageNext messageBottom of pageLink to this message   By TSRE on Tuesday, February 15, 2011 - 08:21 pm:

I work with Eucerin and wanted to give some background information about eczema. The medical term is Atopic Dermatitis and affect approximately 15% of infants and children and 3% of adults in the US and results in skin losing its moisture.

There are ways to help when your eczema gets bad. You want to start by keeping your skin very moisturized to help prevent flare-ups and to reduce the itch. Use only warm water when you bathe and limit it to 15 minutes. When finished, gently pat yourself dry instead of rubbing as this could irritate the skin.

While your skin is still a little damp, use an effect moisturizer that helps to prevent itch like Eucerin Calming Creme. For those with sensitive skin or want a thicker formula, try the Original Creme or Lotion. A lot of people have had great success with Eucerin products and it is often recommended by dermatologists.

Has anyone tried Eucerin and had luck when their skin begins to get dry and itchy?

hello everyone! I have had severe eczema for my entire life, I am 22 years old. Believe me it will get worse before it gets better. but I would like you all to know something that I thought was very interesting.. 75% of eczema is caused by food allergies thats why the " fast for eczema " works so well. I found out that I am allergic to WHEAT,DAIRY,EGGS,PEANUTS,and ALMONDS. Trust me if you have: dry red spots, scabbing,especially if you always have chapped itchy sore lips blistering, flaky, extremely tight and sore skin. . please go to your doctor. and ask for a simple food allergy test.
unfortunately for me I had to find out that I was severely allergic to dairy by going into anaphylatic shock. after cutting out the foods you are allergic to. your skin will forever thank you.

Louise

The same thing happened to me. I got it when I was three, had it til I was about 11....then it completely went away until Jan 2009 when I was 24. Then it came back worse than I ever had it. Its taken this long to get it under control. I tried everything, every supplement, every cream on the net, even bleach baths....

After depserate days of research and experiments I think its something to do with digestion, toxins in your blood, and sensitivities. Eat and drink anti-oxidants as if your life depended on it!! So eat blueberries and drink cranberry juice. Look anit-oxidants up on the internet. Also look up juices and fasting for eczema.

Before you get in the bath, rub youself with olive oil.

Only use the steriod creams on the red patches during a flare up.

The book 'the eczema solution' by susan armstrong brown will help you break the scratch cycle and will help to heal up a lot of your eczema and then you should be able to get rid of the stubborn eczema with changes to your diet.

Avoid red meat and dairy. Eat chicken occassionally and fish (salmon and cod) 3 times a week.

You can drop me an email if you want, just click on my name. Dont worry, it will go away....not as fast as it appeared, but it will go.

Oh and as Peter recommends :) gentle sunbathing whenever you can, in your bithday suit if your garden is quite private, as clothes can make eczema worse.

Red spots could well be a symptom of yeast activity, which is one cause of eczema. Yeast thrives in dark, damp places so the best option is to get the sun and air to that part of your body and apply a good simple moisturiser. You cannot cure it, but it can with care be kept at bay.

i have just been reading all these messages and think i could help alot of you. im 18- had eczema all my life- at times it has become extremely bad- giving me bouts of depression etc. i have tried everything- really!ok so advice:

- maybe you need to try other sources of help, other than doctors- but use their creams, bath oils, and steriods when needed- to stop the suffering- just get the prescriptions- patch tests- never worked for me and neither did blood allergy tests

- if its really bad- try alternative thearpy- hearbilists (for example, napiers- a herablist shop)- special concusions made up for you- really helped me. even massages, yoga, homeopathy

-dry skin: try evening primrose oil tablets (3/4 a day) and this is the best= Artic Omega (same amount)- these both did miracles for me alongside mostirisation

-baths (but not too hot- realives pain massivly) and immediatly moisterise. (although doctors say this takes away skins moisture- i dont think it does as long as you moisterise straight after)

- i have tried- diprobase/doublebase/aveeno/aquadarate etc. you need to change every now and again- new favorite ASTRAL- buy from boots etc. quite pricey which is really annoying but its worth it- thick and creamy- makes your skin feel holiday like

- maybe AVOID YEAST- i.e. bread also acidic fruit- oranges/lemons/limes etc- find they create itching and dryness

-also, honestly this sounds really gay- but do more exercise- you need to get your blood moving

- what about salt in your baths- like salt water- this helps somepeople. but be careful- may sting. i have heard bicarbonate of soda works- although havent tried this myself

-SUN- heals. also cut your nails. even wear gloves- its the hardest thing ever but just dont itch it.

- also if you have bad eczema- try cold baths in the morning. continually flush out your system- herbal teas- neetle, detox, GREEN tea, lots of water. (helps the dryness too)+ eat nuts, like almonds, pumpkin seeds etc.

- also maybe try the 'candida free' website- its quite complex. Its quite ambigious- but apparently somepeople dont have excema. i thought i had this but didnt- fill out a questionaire and someone replies quickly- really nice and helpful. maybe check this out.

good luck to you all. i seriously thought i would never grow out of it. i was covered when i was 16, allergic to everthing, i looked like i had been in a car crash at times. never become a recluse beacuse of it- i didin't. im happy, so much better and nearly finished school-thankgod!! you have to be posotive, although i never was!

Dustin, it sounds like keratosis pilaris. Do a Google search and compare photos with your skin. If there are little white nodules in the bumps, it is either foliculitis or KP.

People with genetic eczema:

Please try this:

Take 50 mg of Zinc orally per day.

Do not do this if you are pregnant.

Also, you may want to start taking a multi-vitamin
as well.

If you try my Zinc treatment, please report the results (and your case history) to me.

It sounds as if you could have seborrhoeic eczema and red spots can be a symptom. It is thought that one cause can be yeast spores, which cause the spots You may well find that applying a slightly antiseptic moisturiser like Dermol lotion or E45 and fresh air and sunlight will help or may even cure.

I'm 35, and a week and a half ago I got some spider bites from some bedding I had washed and then stored in the basement for a while. The entire area of the spider bites became extremely dry and itchy and looks exactly like Eczema. Which I've never had nor has anyone in my family that I know of. But my mom's hands look just like the pictures when she washes dishes. She was told it was just an alergy to dish soap. But has anyone heard of Spider bites triggering Eczema in adults who never had it. Cause it's been a good week and a half and these dry spots itch like crazy and show no signs of stopping. I don't know if I ought to go to the doctor or not.

Princess, Diprobase is RUBBISH, that's why it's not working! lol. Have you tried Doublebase gel? It's not greasy at all so really good for your face. I think you have to keep trying lots of different emollients. If you are in the UK, your GP should be able to go through the BNF and pick you out 3 or so to try at a time, and see which one suits you. Ask for the doublebase though, it really is worth a try. You could also try a really greasy emollient at night when it's not going to matter that it's greasy, like Hydromol or Epaderm. Good luck!

Hi Princess, I also get really dry skin - the things that help me are:

For my body - having baths using an emollient oil - I use Aveeno Oil, but there are lots of others such as Oilatum bath oil. I have the water warm but not too hot (that makes me itchy) and try to soak for 15-20 minutes.

For my face - I use Aveeno cream on my face because it seems to moisturise well without being greasy. Also I use lip balm to stop my lips getting cracked at the edges

Drinking plenty of water - if I don't I really notice the difference

I think the main thing is to always carry some cream with you and if you get dry try to reapply it as often as possible - it can't do you any harm. I know it can be embarrassing when you are out and about - I sometimes duck into a toilet cubicle to put my creams on!

Hope some of this helps you,
Sarah :)

Hi. Im 15 years old and had eczema since i was a baby. I have dry skin on my face, legs, arms etc. I also sometimes have redness on my upper lip area. It's horrid. I moisturise using a cream called diprobase, but the minute i go outside, it just goes all dry again. Can anyone recommend something else? Ive also tried vaseline but the same thing happens.

There is a lotion called KP duty created by the dermatologist who runs dermadoctor.com. Keratosis pilaris and eczema (I am 'lucky' enough to have both) are similar (although visually different) skin problems. Anyway, I have dry skin on my arms (and KP) and the KP duty really softens them. Another lotion I like is Vaseline's Total Moisture (the newer yellow bottle). I LOVE that lotion and it is cheap. If you have dry skin and it is 'thick' moisten the skin with cool-tepid water for no more than 5 minutes or the lotions and esp thicker creams will just sit on the top layer. Another good lotion is the hemp lotion from the body shop. Also, increase your water intake and hydrate from the inside out.
To relieve itching, I cheat and use neosporin with pain relief (on my feet where my eczema is). It keeps me from itching. I have heard some people are allergic to it but it is better than long term steroid use. If you live in a humid area, you have to actually drink more water than usual b/c the moisture in the air pulls moisture from your body (I am a ballet dancer and if you dont drink more in humid weather, you get feet cramps as well).
Burts Bees makes a great Baby lotion for sensitive skin as well and it smells yummy.
Good luck everyone.

Hi Wendy and Cordeygirl, I have found that either sea salt in the bath or tying some oats in muslin and hanging them in the water so it goes all creamy really helps my skin. Good luck

I am 26 and suddenly developed red scaly skin on my legs. Ive never had any skin problems before and nothing that the doctors give me helps at all. Can anyone out there help me stop scratching PLEASE!

Does anyone suffer from excessive dry skin? I have had eczema all my life (28 years) and have always had red, sore patches all over my body but never had this peeling/flaky skin that sheds when you touch it, only to produce another layer of flakiness underneath. I use dermol and diprobase ointment to moisturise, but once that has dried, my skin just flakes off into my clothes. It is mainly on my back and upper arms, and i have stopped wearing dark clothes as its really quite noticable. (My poor washing machine is working overtime!) Any ideas?

Hi there

My four year old daughter was born with eczema and it's been under control. But it leaves dark patches on her body where the skin is most affected. Have you had the same experience and how can this be treated?

Top of pagePrevious messageNext messageBottom of pageLink to this message   By C. on Saturday, May 03, 2003 - 08:44 am:

I have exactly the same problem! I used to suffer from eczema on my arms which has been clear for about ten years. I have suddenly got dry patches either side of my chin. They have now turned into eczema all over my neck and eyelids as well. I still have oily/combination on the rest of my face so it's very confusing!
Can anybody help?

I am a female 46 years old. Why would I suddenly develop very dry, red scaly skin on both sides of my chin area, just below the lower lip area. Until now I have always had oily to normal skin and have never needed to use moisturiser etc. Any advice or help would be welcome please.

Brenda
