Chronic Eczema

I have had horrible chronic eczema for the past 4 years. I was born with this condition and through out my childhood it came out in bouts but was never really chronic like this. The things that make it worse are dietary and emotional upsets. I can't handle dairy, yeasy, gluten, corn, alcohol or coffee with out having an outbreak or developing hives. I've had a lot of emotional turmoil over the years such as bullying, heartbreaks in relationships and dealing with a close famly member that was mentally ill. I feel that now after dealing with all of this stress my body has almost become hyper sensitive to everything.

The only time I could think of my skin feeling normal again and clearing up was when I went to the British Isles on vacation. I'm not sure if this was from lack of stress of it it was the change in air/water but my skin felt amazing. As soon as I got home thought I broke out on my face and the cycle started up once again.

My skin is tight and dry, falky and red. If I itch it at all I will get tiny cuts that bleed then crust up. After I drink alcohol or eat certain foods my skin can feel very hot and feel as if its burning. Cold applications help, although I'm a cold person in general and always have freezing hands and poor circulation.

Mentally I overanalyze a lot, I'm anxious and fear the future, mostly that I won't succeed at doing anything and will never be able to become a 'professional'.I fear that I will never get well with my eczema as well. I get anxious in large groups of people and can sometimes be lazy and reside in my house and feel that I want to be cozy and alone. However, I can not be alone for long as I get restless and feel that I need to be around friends or my boyfriend. In relationships I fear that my boyfriend will leave me for another girl, I get jealous and thinkg that they find other women more sexually attractive than I and I have delusions of them cheating. If these thoughts become overwhelming I prefer to cry alone to release some tension.

Please help, any one have any ideas??

Occupation: Hostess at restaurant & Cashier at health food store
No longer on birth control pills, I tried one for a couple weeks and then stopped. I have used the 'Plan B' 'emergency birth control' hormone pill various times through out the past couple years however.

My chief complaint is eczema.
I was born with eczema but it has gotten worse since 2008.
I started partying with friends during this time, I became sexually active and started drinking a lot. I was bullied for 'sleeping around' and also went through some heartbreak from a break up with a boyfriend. Around this time I also got a vaccination for HPV called Gaurdasil, I received two shots.

I was very nervous about being in a relationship and it always consumed my life. When the first boy I fell in love with broke up with me, I felt like my world fell a part and I felt completely alone. It took me a long time to emotional get over this and during this time my eczema was extremely exaccerbated. It also enhanced my jealousy and made me not trust other people and made me feel like I wasn't good enough for other boys.

Other main complaints: I have difficulty digesting certain foods and become very bloated. I have trouble with constipation and have all my life. Sometimes there is blood in my stool and hemmroids. I have a lot of food allergies and break out in eczema or get hives after consuming; dairy, gluten, yeast, coffee, alcohol, corn and tomatoes. Sometimes I get stabbing pains in my stomach and feel neausas depending on what I eat.

I have taken steroids internally and externally at the age of 12 and 13. The last time I was on steroids for my skin was two or three years ago, they helped for a short while but made my skin worse in the end. I no longer use any steroids.

I also forgot to mention that I have dark circles under my eyes and sometimes feel that its hard to keep my eyes open. I also have receding gums. My eczema also at times turns my skin white and it flakes very easily when I scratch it. You can see the dead skin peeling off.

it antidotes the ill effect of all the medicines you have taken till now and makes your body more responsive to the current treatment.
