I don't know if it's due to an allergy or not but I've had eczema on my hands for pretty much as long as I can remember and the worst-affected regions are pretty discoloured because of it.

Not eczema but I get random allergic reactions to a lot of things I guess.

But for me it clears as quickly as it comes, I could start getting red patches within 10 seconds, then they'd disappear just as randomly

Hope it improves x
I've had it on my legs for like 3 years & arms.

Have it on my upper lip and face for more than a year. Recently, had a patch test done and found out the shampoo and handwash I used I was allergic to. Now my skin is getting better , but at weird times I get allergic reaction even tho I stay away from allergens.

Does heat affect your skin?

I have slight eczema and none of my siblings have it. :fuhrer:
Damn my genetics.

Not so much as an allergy but that my skin can't retain a level of moisture so I'd have to apply some skin moisturizer every morning thats all.

I have it on:

1) behind my knee.
2) right below my biceps.
3) below my calves.

I used to have it from dry skin. It comes back every now and then on my feet but nothing major. Just use cream and it should be fine

I had eczema above my lips. Vaseline does not work!! But pretty much all prescribed creams will get rid of eczema though.

Practically everywhere having a really bad flare up atm. I've recently been given an antimicrobial moisturiser that doubles as a soap substitute. Also have a hydrocortisone cream with an antibiotic in but it's not helping much. Makes me cry sometimes it's just so darn itchy.

I have it and it runs in my dads side of the family. It isn't bad in the summer but it flares up a lot during winter.

I have eczema.on my face, hands and elbows but it's not triggered by allergies. I have to moisturise my skin with a prescribed cream twice a day which also acts as a soap substitute. Have had eczema since I was little.

I can emphasise with you. Where about do you have it? Tbh your hydrocortisone cream isn't the best steriod if your skin is bad
