Hello and hope you are doing well.
The symptoms described by you could be due a skin disorder called eczema. People who suffer from this disorder should avoid contact with triggering factors like soaps, cosmetics, jewelry, clothing, and detergents. Sometimes sweat, changes in temperature and psychological stress are known to trigger these episodes. So, the best way to prevent attacks is to identify those substances which you are allergic to and avoid them. Consult your primary care physician for therapy. If the need arises he may refer you to a dermatologist.
Hope this helped and do keep us posted.
I think you're right! My itchy ears have eczema! I wondered if that was it.... Its all brought on by my emotions because I don't wear jewelry, use creams or perfume. My husband is undergoing interferon treatment and is homebound due to an immune problem due to the meds. I also have chewed my nails as short as they go..which is unusual for me. I'd better take to the treadmill and blow off some steam! Thanks for input and caring, Dr. Anitha.
