During my life I have never suffered with any kind of skin or eczema related conditions other than a very brief period when I was quite a young child.
I am now nearly 32 and have had a new job working in a DIY store for the last year or so. Ever since then I have had bad sores and extremely itchy red skin conditions in various places on my body.
The worst areas by far are my wrists and the insides of my elbows. Strangely my hands which I hear are normal to be affected have always been fine. It effects anywhere on my body where friction exists but only happens and builds up after being at work. When I have a week off my skin has almost repaired itself completely by the time I go back only to inflame again as soon as I return.
I know the simple answer is to get another job but I actually like this one and am trying to overcome this problem!
I have tried HC45 and steroids which help but obviously don't get rid of the problem due to work being the issue. I use emollient creams and take antihistamines everyday now and have changed to soap free shower gels which all help but nothing seems to be able to stop the problem.
Basically what I am looking for now is anything that I can wear to stop the irritants having contact with my skin.
Is there anything that anyone knows of that I can buy to cover wrists and inside of elbow joints firstly? Secondly is there anything else that anyone can suggest that I could do to help.
And thirdly where can I get these things. ThanksVmuch
