I have had atopic eczema for about 14 years. I'm a 43 year old male. I've noticed over the past few years that whenever I have a cold my skin gets better. Where I'm clear my skin feels like it has a sheen to it and the dry cracked areas start to heal and I have less desire to pick and scratch. I know that this time next week I'll be back to normal (with eczema)
I always take lemsip for my colds and was wondering if there could be something in the lemsip that clears me up? The only other thing I can think of is that I clear up as my body fights the virus itself. Am I alone?
