Hi everyone, I've suffered from eczema most of my life sometimes it's not been a problem but these last 2 years it's been getting worse especially on my hands meaning I have to sometimes take days off work. I get small vesicles under my skin on my hand and when they come to the surface it dries my hands and cracks them which turns into the eczema. I get eczema on my neck, forearms and legs but it doesn't bother me as much as my hands.
I've had a patch test 2 years ago and it shows I'm allergic to plants in the daisy family which isn't good seeing as I'm a gardener. I know the obvious answer would be to change job but i really don't want to do that as it's my own business and it's all I've ever done since when I left school 10years ago so I'm exploring all other options before changing job.
I always wear cotton liners under my work gloves and I've used steroid creams on and off for a long time, constantly using emollients, wash with natural soaps, seen all sorts of specialists, homeopath, Chinese herbalist and changed my diets but nothing is long term treatment and to be honest running out if ideas. I've heard of immunotherapy but don't know where or who to contact or even if it would work for me.
If anyone has used immunotherapy or got any other ideas of treatments I'd appreciate your feedback. Cheers
