Hello im cheryl, 34 and 3 months pregnant.For the past yr i have had major eczema flare up on face and neck, it burns and is very itchy. Been to docs and have had all the creams going, nothing working, has anyone any suggestions on how to control it? Dont think i can take much more of this as very debilitating. Thanks very much in advance.

    I have suffered for the last 10 years with this eczema, I have had a flare up this last week, mine in on my hands and I like you have tried everything, it's painful I am at this moment got dermavate on but I moisturise all day long, I also take antihistamine every night to stop the itching, it helps but I don't know if you can them whilst you are pregnant, I would check with the doctor.  I hope you get some relief. Good luck

    Lots of people are suddenly suffering from eczema caused by contact with Methylisothiazolinone and related chemicals.  If you look to see, you will probably find that your shampoo, maybe your hand cream, possibly your cleaning sprays, almost certainly your washing up liquid and many other things in your home will include this chemical, which may show as kathan, benzoisothiazolinone.  Many people - at least 10% of the population are sensitive to this chemical.  You can ask to be tested by a dermatologist or take the other route which is cutting it out of your life and seeing if it makes a difference.
