Hi my 18 month old daughter has been percribed hydrocortisone for the past 5 months for ezchema. It started as one small patch and spread more. It is all over both arms and legs, she suffers bright red itchy skin when I attempt withdrawal. The dermatologist has told me to continue to use it until she grows out of her ezchema with no breaks or tailoring down. She has also been diagnosed with with chronic spontaneous urticaria, and now doctors even think that the red skin is caused by this condition and were reluctant to prescribe antibiotics for an infection as they think everything is urticaria or inflamed ezchema. They eventually treated the infection. And now I have no help or support in Birmingham UK. And left to deal with my daughters Rss and doctors that are reluctant to do anything but prescribe more stronger steroids.

I got this in May…right after I had a severe panic attack,, I had been dealing with alot of stress, I had two children with in 22 months of each other, and dealing with postpartum,, I have not been able to get back to my ole’ self. All the anxiety, stress, depression, panic attacks, I could feel the tow it was taking inside me, I believe for me, it is 100% related to the panic attacks, stress etc.. I agree with the article, and in general if I got more excercize I think it would help,, I had eczema on all my fingers, and have been taking a type of steroid creme to put on my fingers,, now it is mainly my thumb, at times it feels raw and hurts most the time,, how I would love to feel my babies soft skin without the roughness of my peeled rough skin.. some of the tips of my fingers feel a little numb. I am doing my best to try and take it easy, not stress so much,, excercize is hard, having the two little ones with no one to watch, and I can’t afford a gym membership,,just wanted to tell you all to hang in there,,
