Have you been told it is eczema you have?
Many Doctors flock to that. When indeed many times it is not that.
ever heard of nervous dermatitis? I am guessing not. Because this is a secret to society.
Oh yeah, another secret to sell creams and drugs. And treat symptoms without treating the cause. Or avoiding the cause.
Nervous dermatitis is a condition where your nerves are what causes the skin disorder. One where your body attacks itself like arthritis and others.
It can be anywhere on the body, and spread throughout also.
Now that you know the key words to search for you can find it. But know now there is very little out there on this disorder. With no plans to investigate it further if the gov. can help it anyways.
I have this disorder. And was told I had eczema by most dr's I saw for 40 yrs!
None of them knew of this disorder. None!
Sad but true.
I found myself, that being cold and shivering or close to it, simulates nervousness! And thus comes the disorder full force again.
If you find this sounds like you and you want to find out if it is what you have, then you would have to do just as you are doing now only stay away from stress, and situations which get your nerves tense or nervous. This may be your job. But don't quit that. It worsens in the winter for me because it is drier and cold simulates nervousness with the nervous system. And because insulated boots have polyester in them which I am allergic to. This makes me feel nervous and uptight. And that stimulates nervous dermatitis! My skin was so gross that people didn't want to get to close to me or touch me for fear of getting what I had. I felt like a freak of nature. My hands looked 100 at the age of 10.
I have the same thing but was diagnosed, I went and saw a Dermatoligist in Puyalup, Washington. His name is Dr. Crowe he gave me a steroid shot and Triamcinolone Avetonide Cream I use it once a day and only on the sores it also is a type of steroid and I also take shower and spray my self with deluted bleach about once a week and soon probly go down to once a month, I lost my hair and had soars all over including my face i felt as though my skin was eating it self any little scratch tempeture hot or cold I would break out again but after seeing Dr. Crowe and doing this in 2 days I had not one scab or bump I did have dryness for a bit but it is way better oh I almost forgot I also used and still do every night I use Vasiline for my skin and that is his recemedation also I was wiyh Dove white soap and I only use baby shampoo due to my sensitive skin also his recemedation he also did say there is so much research to be done but he looked right at me and said you have something that you need no to worry about and is easy to cure the hard part is getting rid of all the things that trigger my nerves and Live life happy anf he is right I use to run to nature (woods, birds,wild animals, even just staring out into space of the stars or sky)everytime I was upset,angry,sad,depressed,or way to overwelmed and sometimes even talk to my angels as my dad always told me I am not a stressful person, and don't have fears or let others bother me nor do I judge but after walking out of that Dr. office I realized everyone around me shut me down, see 4 years ago I had been diagnosed wit Miligmant Melanoma that had metabolised it in my liver, pancreas, and left kidney, I refused any treatment after a year I started to become un able to go down stairs, drive, socilize...I pretty much became bed bound and refused other help, but in that one year befor I started having problems Cancer was just a word and its mind over matter when I was told what I had Ilooked right into the specialist eyes smiled and said thats okay at least I know he just shook his head at me I still smiled as another doctor started to try and lecture me and I politly said excuse me who knows your body better then your self no I might not know what the term is called for it but I honestly can tell you I am okay with it and I will be just fine rather I pass or live I Thank and Good Bye. Well that is where it started really then it was family and friends everyone around me changed and kept asking me to try this and that I asked them all to stop please then all of a sudden I have cakes, flowers emails , and strangers coming to my door trying to please me and save me, I finally blew up and told everyone to leave me alone if you cant love me and not beable to stop looking me as though I am Cancer or Death then how can I possibly be happy leave it alone I , Cancer and even Death are just fine, then of course it worsen and I flip out my pain increased unbelievable and I still refused drugs (pain pills, ect.) and the most fustrating pert of it all was not one family member or friend could even rember what kind of cancer I had that just knew I had it I finally told them all no more question you only what ya want or you never hear it period so stop, it slowed down but then they all would start in again so I cut everyone off I had to I was bed bound by this point and they literally drove me to crazyness as soon as someone came to my door or even drove by I would scream at them and tell them to go away,I couldn't handle it then all of a sudden my Husband started in wanting me to go to the doctors and everyday he was questioning things because evryone were coming up with stuff in there head I lived with this for atleast 2 years my husband was nuts too he would miss me so much and talk so highly of me to everyone while at work or with family but as soon as he walked through our door he was angry and it didnt matter what it wwas he was constintly looking for what I was doing wrong to my self such as eating to much or no enough if it was healthy or why didnt I take a shower ect. really dumb stuff I felt like a evil ugly hated little child and I use to blow up daily on him then I didnt have the fight anymore and would stress about him getting home then I became that child locked up in a cage but let these feelings take over I could blame everyone else but I refuse to do that I see all my family and friends and still live with my husband but I put them in place before they even get started my husband still worries here and there but tries very hard to stop looking and Love me and not hate on cancer because all the pain and hair loss and sores was not cancer it was my nerves and when he starts in because I look pale or scar is really red or my hair isnt growing fast enough I walk out the door no hate no cover ups and I start talking to a neighbor , stranger , ect. Because not one person who knew me treated me like I was dying or even looked at my soars unlike my family or people who knew me and that makes me remember my confidence and that soars or no soars hair or no hair I have always had confidence in my self because I have always believed in my self and never needed a reason for someone elses actions, and I feel awsome and I am glad I was that person once before because it would be very hard not to take thing personal or have to try to get over something fearful, the only task I have is not to ever let go and not believe in my self again and by the way it has been 4 years since my diagnoses with cancer and I do not have any of the symptoms I had in the beging but I will not be going back to find out I can handle the answers but for some reason others can not so in my eyes I have been givin that second chance and I am not gonna relive it, I am going to stay positive, understanding, Humble, confident, and just show with no words that I am just as good as I ever was, and yes I drive I go down stairs I run, jump, and play everyday probly better then I ever have because I am happy and I am living my life and enjoying it Sorry I think I got a little carried awy there but hoping that any info meds, to what I felt I delt with can help you or someone else. Best Wishes to evryone and I hope everyone can find them selves and there peace of mind =)
i was diagnosed with nervous dermatitis after a year of suffering ,my skin was itchy all over and no one knew what i had , i went to dermatologist to have biopsy done all she told me was i was allergic to something .then i went to an allergy doctor he told me to put vaseline all over my body but that was just covering it up so he finally did the test on your back which i don't remember what it was called he said i was allergic to grass ,dogs, feathers then he was giving me a shot for allergies and told me it would take about a year to see some improvement , so then he did a test and told me i had shojgrams diease
so finally he sent me back to my regular doctor cause he didn't know anything about it so went back to her and she said she couldn't help she didn't know anything either i was losing my hair and couldn't sleep at night so she transferred me to another doctor but she wouldn't take me cause i didn't have insurance so i ended up being transferred to my doctor i have now i went to him on friday he said i want to put you in the hospital because you have nervous dermatitis and cellulitis in both legs, from the time i hit the hospital my itching stopped he put me on xanax and i was there a week and took me off xanax and i started itching again so when i went back for an office check up he put me back on it but now I'm off of it and taking a pill which is like a second cousin to xanax and i use this cream you can buy over the counter called Cerave its awesome my skin is soft as a baby .plus i use that Triamcinolone cream too if i get a little itch .ask your doctor about this pill and my doctor has me on lexapro so I'm doing good hope this helps
i itched for 9 months without relief i was at my wits end when i finally went to this doctor please try this cream , i hated the vaseline it almost ruined my washer it was discusting washing my clothes and stuff that had vaseline on it .
Thank you so much for posting this! I have been itching like crazy for about 3 weeks and have rashes all over my elbows, legs, arms and the itching is so intense I cant sleep. I know it is nerves because somebody sent me something yesterday that made my computer crash and suddenly I broke out all over my knees. I am going to the clinic today and ask for that cream and the lexapro. I have every anti-itch cream here known to mankind. The Aveeno Oatmeal bath helped the most so far but I can't spend my life in the bathtub. Your comment is quite old. Are you still doing okay?
