Since visiting the dermatologist, I’ve been following the recommend eczema protocol. However, the dermatologist didn’t seem certain I had eczema although he diagnosed me with subdermal eczema.
The rash isn’t rough, the skin is not broken or cracking, and applying Vaseline seems to aggravate my skin instead of help. Also, my skin itches intensely – as in it causes me to lose sleep because the itch is so severe. While I don’t have patches of broken skin, I do have lesions. The lesions are shallow and about 1cm in diameter. I also have blisters – small fluid filled blisters which are independent from the lesions.
My hair is falling out.
I have a blister on my tongue.
The eczema therapies aren’t working.
Is this really eczema??? Do I have another autoimmune disease affecting my skin? My PCP believes that my skin rash is autoimmune and NOT related to eczema, which differs from the dermatologist’s diagnosis.
Meanwhile, I’ve switched back to moisturizing my skin with my own coconut oil cream recipe. It seems to be slightly more effective than vaseline at controlling the itching and it doesn’t leave a slimy, gooey film on my skin. This is a maddening situation.
