Eczema - Causing marraige misery.
My eczema is making my life very miserable. I went to my MD and was prescribed cort. steriod. It relieved the itching but did not heal. I have a chronic case of eczema since infantcy. I know to stay away from chemicals, tomoto, spicy foods etc. What can still cause this. I have changed my toothpaste brand & cosmetic brand to see if there is any change, but to no prevail. I have a crust around my mouth for the past 3 months now. Have tried numerous ointments and creams (Persivate, Fusadin, Moducare topical, betadine, tar based ointment. But to get to the point - the skin around my mouth looks so aged, is it possible to have a skin graft to repair it?

Desperate, eczema is due to an abnormal reaction to normal things, so it isn’t really do to something you’re taking or doing. A skin graft isn’t an option, but seeing a good dermatologist should do the trick. Good luck.
