Hello all --
I'm trying to figure out what could be causing my eczema and I'm hoping to find some answers.
I always had a few eczema spots but never anything widespread. Always hay fever but nothing worse.
I started getting blepharitis in June 2013 - which coincides with a time when I was visiting a dog at a puppy store (which I eventually bought) and a stressful period in life for other reasons.
I bought the dog and continued to deal with stresses which I have finally gotten to a manageable level. My body started to get eczema and eventually a lot of my face (eyes, above lip, forehead, sideburns/cheek bone).
I have tried separating from my dog and whenever I actually discontinue the medicine I use (Elidel), the eczema on my face comes raging back although my itchy body appears to improve.
Also I want to note that I had tinea versicolor on my ribs that were there for years until a doctor gave me ketaconazole which improved it significantly.
My allergies are vast but do include pets (I have never had issues around dogs until this one possibly) as well as mercury.
Any ideas what this is? Allergies? Candida? Just stress?
Any help truly appreciated
