  1. I think I do? That sounds strange doesn’t it!! I have a red rash that is under my hair, behind my ear, the doctor said it might be eczema when I was younger but my dad wouldn’t listen (didn’t want to admit there may be something ‘wrong’ with his child) me and my sister also get flare ups on our chests like my mum x

  2. My husband has had a bad flare up on the palm of his hands he had to be put on steroid pills and steroid cream (which thankfully has improved it). He could barely use his hands because of the pain from the cracked skin, etc. His was definitely triggered by stress but I am so grateful for the list of foods we can try to help him out too.

  3. I have eczema and literally anything can flare up mine! I’ll get it on my face, chest and my back. It can be annoying some times but I’ve found ways to manage it but I don’t have much discipline with certain foods I know I’m suppose to eat. Chocolate is going to be a hard one for me haha. Great post! xx

      1. Oh yes absolutely. Especially since there really isn’t anything you can do, since there is no cure. You can try creams and stuff but they didn’t really help. I think it’s just a matter of keeping the triggers away, trying to minimize the eczema rashes, and hope that they will go away soon.

  4. I’m still waiting for my daughter’s pediatrician to confirm what I believe to be eczema. I have been using a special lotion and it helps but really would love to know for sure.

  5. Thanks for sharing. I did not know it was eczema awareness week! I have been struggling with an eczema flare up recently so it is good to get a few more tips about how to manage it. Thank you!
