Hi, i have been battling itchy dry skin since i was a little girl seeing many specialists to try and solve the problem or at least help me manage it better but i haven't had any luck. I am still clueless as to what it is when it is present and what could be the cause. I know i have eczema and it has gotten really bad in the past, but over the recent years i have had other skin issues that have been very stressful for me as no specialist has been able to tell me what it is and to find a way of stopping it from irrupting.
At my worst it has been all over my hands, arms, stomach, and legs anywhere i could scratch. It has been extremely itchy and painful from over scratching areas causing sores.
I have added photos of a time i was pretty bad but not my worst (Arms)
And right now i am starting to get the skin problem again. They are pink circles on both of my wrists in similar places and increasing in size and spreading to other areas of my arms and wrists. I also get very itchy knuckles on one of my hands and at times they become extremely itchy. I sometimes get little spots that are itchy and at times they have had transparent liquid, they don't always have liquid.
Ive had many treatments as to having to take 10 pills a day and many different types of steroid creams which have helped at times and other times made it start to disappear but then the problem becoming much worse than before.
I would really like to finally find out what it is so that i can find a solution to stop it from appearing and if it does to be able to control it before it covers my body!
