I have eczema.

I have a 19 year old daughter with eczema. It can be so annoying at times! I’m joining because I’d like to learn any tips about coping with eczema that others may share.

I’ve a daughter who has eczema, asthma and allergies.

The doctor has called it a “triad” of symptoms. Her eczema symptoms are better in the winter and get worse in the summer, I think it is the sweating that aggravates her condition in addition to chlorine from pools. Right now she is off steroid medications and we manage with quick baths, cetaphil soap, lots of cetaphil moisturizer, scent free laundry detergent for every washable item. I try to stick with natural fabrics with no itchy trim or tags. I wash her hair separately from her bath. I try to minimize hair products, we dont use any perfumes, no dryer sheets and no wool products.

We adopted a dog from the local shelter, what am I crazy. But it’s worked out well, she is so happy and it is helping her deal with all of her conditions and the loss of her father who died of cancer. I have not noticed any exacerbation of her symptoms with this dog around, hard to believe.

Anyway, I wish I found you guys alot sooner.

I want to connect with any parents who have experience of any long term effects of steroid medication. My daughter has had a tic for a few years now. It started with eye blinking and then it was picking at her underwear. I know it sounds weird. She still blinks and now does this eye rolling thing that initially freaked me out. The doctor thinks it is a transient tic, that lots of kids get them and they go away.

I have since found out that 5 of my older siblings had tics as children. Despite this information I have long suspected that the medication my girl was on at such a young age and for so long is to blame for this. Whatever the reason, I am feeling quite alone and could use a bit of support. I know there are other parents who are also exhausted by everything you to do to keep your kids with eczema comfortable and symptom free as possible.
