I developed Eczema when I was in college. It was so annoying, it drove me crazy and it made me feel so insecure especially since, I've never had issues with my skin, I like to really take care of it. Anyways, I get it on my cheeks and my forehead. Strangely enough, it's different in different spots. On my cheeks, it's red and so itchy and a bit patchy. On my forehead, it's just dry, patchy and flakey. Luckily, I haven't had a breakout on my cheeks in about 2 months (knock on wood it doesn't come back). But my forehead is so damn dry!
I think it has to do with an allergy (or multiple) with me, I need to go to the doctor and find out what I'm allergic to. It might be something I'm eating but the only thing I've started eating (about 6 years ago) are tomatoes. I've eaten eggs like a madman since I was little so I don't think that is it. AND... I recently (month ago) discovered a sushi that I'm in love with (Arctic Role) which is a big thing because I hate fish. So I'm thinking the salmon in the sushi might be keeping it away.
At one point I tried Total Moisture Facial Cream by Benefit and that made my cheeks go so red! I do not recommend it if you have Ezcema, it will make life hell for you. Currently, I'm using Pure and Natural Soothing Day Cream by Nivea and it's going good so far. Ole Henriksen Nurture Me cream and Truth serum are amazing as well, the serum really calms my skin down. Vitamin C is great.
In the winter time, my skin condition is at it's worst but in the summer time, it's at it's best. The sun KILLS my Eczema!
