I have had Eczema my whole life since birth severe on and off in that time. Well considering I've been hospitised every 6mths since birth I'd say severe. Now severe all the time except when the Drs decided to use this magic little pill called imuran. In 2011 I was hospitalised with septic eczema that nearly killed me they used the usual hospital procedure which was strong pain meds prednisone and warm wet wraps only to discover that none of it was working. Then they did a bunch of bloods to see if I was compatible to take immunosuppressants and I was they started me on imuran and within one day I was already improving. For 5 years I went without cream steroids for my skin you couldn't even tell I had eczema most of the time. Anything I was allergic to barely affected me at all. The down side to those drugs though is what they do to your liver and immune system. When I was on them though getting a simple cold was better than dealing with what I have now since they took me off them. I have another appt in October with the dermos and I'm gonna ask for the imuran back now that my liver has settled because otherwise I'm living with mrsa and antibiotics pregnisone and eventually septicaemia again which means more hospitalisation to fix it. I was so annoyed when I was a kid because they alway said you will grow out of it but I didn't and now I get that sick I almost die from it.
