I’ve had eczema since I was young. It started off as just dry hands then has progressively gotten worse due to stress. Luckily it hasn’t been consistent, but has spread to different areas of the body. I started to take it more seriously when it spread to my face, an area I couldn’t often hide. I was horrified, I thought people where always looking at me.
But my skin has definitely improved, especially on days when the flare up is minimal – it makes the hours spent moisturising and resisting the urge to itch worth it.
