Dermatologist said Eczema ?

Posted by linkadge on June 27, 2020, at 7:52:17


I saw a dermatologist today (online). She was quite informed and asked me a million questions. I showed her the pictures of my legs and she said that it was eczema. I am not 100% convinced, but in doing more reading on eczema, it seems to make a lot of sense.

Antifungals have done nothing, but (interestingly) I've been putting ginger root and coconut oil on it and for the first time in a few years it has been improving. The dermatologist said that actually made sense based on the anti-inflammatory effect of ginger root.

Anyhow, long story short, the rash did start at the time of a major stressor and (apparently) there is a link between mood and eczema (systemic inflammation).

If this is true, there may be a common link between my worse mood and this rash over the past few years.

For example, interleukin 1-beta is linked to both mood and dermatological reactions.

I'll keep you posted.
