Apparently I had eczema when I was a baby, but I never had it since. My skin on my face and neck is pretty good, but in April this year, I started getting eczema on face? I'm 16 and right now my self-esteem level is -999.. It'll sometimes flare up randomly and I don't know what's triggering it or why it has even appeared in the first place!
At first i had really dry lips and I thought i just didnt drink enough water and then I had what looked like a cold sore on the side of my lip but then it started spreading and the Dr diagnosed me with perioral dermatitis. I was put on rozex and doxycycline which seemed like it helped at first but then just made everything worse.
The redness then starting spreading on my eyes and eventually to my cheeks. My skin on my lips and eyelids would always be swollen, weepy and flaky. Then after I went back to the Dr and got clonea antifungal cream, the mouth part got a bit better (possibly I had an infection when my skin was cracked? idk)
Right now it's so much better than the beginning (possibly because the Dr diagnosed me wrong). When i went to a specialist, I was diagnosed with eczema and was prescribed with sigmacort and solone for a while. At the moment I am only using dermeze ointment. However, I'm going on an overseas trip with my school soon and have my oral exams soon and I really just want my original skin back!!
Please help! (been looking everywhere for answers and I'm just really desparate) It gets so itchy sometimes and it's really frustrating because i can't concentrate at school and I always have an oily face with hair constantly sticking to my face because of the moituriser. It's really embarassing
