I had an allergic reaction to something (still unknown what) 5 weeks ago and since then I have had awful eczema around my eyes.
I have been to the doctors 7 times and to absolutely no avail.
They gave me steroids tablets for 3 days, this cleared it up but it came back 2 days later. Then another course of steroids tablets for 4 days. Again, the condition came back a few days after finishing it.
They steroid cream, which cured the condition but again it came back after a few days. Then a stronger steroid cream (this was for my eyes!!!) And it cleared up but again was back in a few days.
I have been prescribed 5 different antihistamines in this time and yesterday was given an eczema cream (cetraben I think) which seemed to help but I woke up today with them red, swollen and raw again.
I am at my wits end and becoming really depressed about this whole situation. Not to mention it was only yesterday that I was diagnosed with dermatitis and til then I had no idea, I still thought I was allergic to something.
Any help would be so greatly appreciated. Thanks
