Hey all. Ive been having spuratic skin burning for the passed couple of years. Once it was so bad that it looked like i had 2 black eyes. Most recently i broke out in hives/ bumps all over my face. I didnt have a picture to show the dr. So she thought it was likely eczema. Wondering what product other people may use. I hear skin issues are common in people with fibro. My skin is so dry and painful. I could really used some relief that wont cause a reaction...
Excema is a skin condition that is an irritation of the skin & there are Cortisone creams for it. Ask to see a Dermatologist for proper treatment. Sweating & stress can make it happen. Use totally unscented products for your hair,skin, Laundry products deodorant. Use Toiletries, & soaps that are unscented, eg. Ivory soap.
I use Body Butter on my body and moisturizers on my face.
I use Aveeno and Nivea. When it gets really bad for me itching I do have a prescription lotion. On the days i have and get hives really bad. I usually end up with some days of taking prednisone. I also use pure cocoa butter.
Gold bond is great Salonpas with lidocaine if you have certain areas that are really painful help
but what I do is I also take gabapentin it’s a prescription medication that helps the nerve endings in your skin and then there’s a new drug out very similar to gabapentin called Horizont - you might want to check them out i
t has helped me a lot.
I use Aveeno moisturizer. They have a great skin calming formula that works for me.
I swear by Avino cream. I use it on my face and body. It's amazing for sensitive skin. The doctors even recommend it for babies with dry skin or skin conditions.
Gold Bond is great.
