Woman with eczema for 15 years...help!

I have had eczema since I was ten. It started with an cut that got infected, and then spread onto both hands, and flares up on the back of my legs and arms at its worst. I had it around the top of my mouth for a couple of years, but it went away.

My skin is thin from using steroid ointments and creams for many years, and have recently stopped using the higher dosage for a lower dosage, but I do not want to use medications that mask the problem, and they have stopped working lately. My skin is dry and flaky. It gets thick in the areas after I scratch it, and starts peeling. It gets irritated with water, and when I use my hands a lot for work, cleaning, etc.

I have an overall pretty healthy diet, but I really enjoy salty foods, including pickles and also acidic foods like citrus fruits. My stomach gets upset easily, and is calmed when my body temperature is warmer.

My demeanor is generally kind positive, and outgoing, but can get emotional at times, but I never yell.

Please recommend anything that might help. I have read that antimonium crudum and sulphur can help, but am welcome to other suggestions and/or the proper amount to take.

no...no other medical history. my father had grave's disease and my sister has hyperthyroid.

when i get really warm from working out or in hot and humid weather, i break out in rashes sometimes too.

please take PULSATILLA 30C one dose a day for some 5 to 7 days and note if its producing any changes in you.

if you note any changes, please take the doses once in two to three days for some days more.

Thanks! I'll try it and see how it goes.

I've taken pulsatilla for a couple of days and my eczema has gotten worse, especially where it originated on my hands and arms. I don't know if it's due to the pulsatilla or because I've had a bad cold for the past few days as well.

Please advise if I should continue taking the suggested medication or try something different.
