For a couple months now I have been extremely itchy to the point it keeps me up at night. I had shown my doctor and he said it was eczema and to try switching soaps, laundry detergent etc. Right after he diagnosed it as Eczema I went out and bought the Aveeno Eczema lotion and Aveeno fragrance free sensitive body wash but still keep itching. I even tried Aveeno baby wash. I had been using Tide detergent a month prior to seeing my doctor and thought maybe that was the cause since it's common to be allergic to it then switched to Gain after and now at almost a month later I am using the All sensitive skin detergent and I am still itching! Even Cortisone cream doesn't help. I have an appointment with a Dermatologist in a week and a half but is there anything I can do to find some kind of relief until then?
My stomach, around the belly button is the itchiest area and the legs near my ankles or back of my thighs. The area just gets red. There are no bumps or anything. Occassionally I will get itchy on the inside of my arms near the armpits. Sometimes there will be small red spots in this area but there are no bumps and the spots are not raised.
I do realize that I have long nails and do scratch hard to find relief so some marks are from my nails but the whole area turns red when scratching. Also I am sorry about my the lighting and my gross belly button
