Okay, so i have really bad eczema, and average acne. I have no idea how to deal with either one of them. I’ve tried some creams for dry skin, and various lotions such as Aquaphor Original Ointment, and Eucerin Calmin Itch Relief. Unfortunately I don’t have any health insurance right now, but I live in MD USA, and if anyone knows doctors with reasonable prices, I’d be willing to go. This stuff is a nightmare, and it’s making my skin very uneven and damaged.

I have the same thing. What I do is use neutrogena face wash with a scrubbie thing, then I use clean and clear spot treatment and for my dry patches I use aveeno twice a day on my face and it doesn’t make you breakout, I use just the regular body one.

I have the same exact problem..
one day I picked up my hydrocortisone which was for my eczema and thought .. “hey they shoot this sstuff into pimples, so why can’t I put it on my skin?” (which has pimples and eczema like, right on top of eachother) and it made my skin sooo soft and clear but…you should be careful cause it is a steroid cream so talk to your dermotologist before doing that! If she says okay though definitely give it a try!

all you have to do is to get rid of your face from it’s sebum all the time. and gently and mildly exfoliate (not on your actual pimples though!) to clear your pores out from dead skin cells that block your pores. it works!

Hi! I would like to suggest that drink at least 2 litres of hot water everyday, include a lot of fruits in your diet like water melon, grapes, papaya, apples, kiwi and eat lots of salads. It will really help you. It has helped me. I had lots of acne but later I got rid of it. Hope this will help.

I had eczema in high school, and it was the worsstt. it gets triggered by literally everything :/ you have to be really gentle with your skin—i.e., don’t use facewash every day.

Yeah honestly a dermatologist is your best option. The money you’ll spend trying a bunch of different products in hopes of finding something that will help will far surpass the money spent seeing a doctor.

I understand everything that you are going through. I have sensitive skin, eczema, and small amounts of acne. For my acne, I use Clean and Clear or Noxema or Neutrogena. As for my eczema, I use hydrocorisone and I have the Aveeno oatmeal baths at least once a week. It’s very important to figure out what products are best for you, trust me! I’ve used products that completely dried my body and left me with this weird flaky skin.:/

I’ve honestly been to like five different dermatologists, but none of them know anything about eczema or cared to give me any sort of explanation. you definitely need a strong topical hydrocortisone that a doctor will prescribe, but I wouldn’t recommend specifically seeking out a dermatologist because they won’t give you any answers or tell you anything other than “just use the ointment and that’s that”.

I have had the same reaction with as other people with it coming back with stress and hydrocortisone not working at all. I use caladryl when it itches, but to help it clear up I use jojoba oil, which helps it to not be so dry and clear up faster. So far that is the only thing I’ve found so far to help.

I found this article through Google. I hope you find it helpful:

Do Acne Scar Creams Really Work?

If you are reading this article, then I am sure that you have got several terrible acne blemishes on your face, and also that you would like to get rid of those scars as fast as possible. Now, I certainly hope you did not come here hoping for a one-day miracle cure, because, as far as I know, none exists! I also believe that you are looking for an acne scar cream, preferably something that is 100% natural. Well in this article I will tell you whether acne scar creams really work or not!

Granted, there are tons of acne scar removal treatments available, but many people believe that if you want to get rid of scars completely and permanently, then laser surgery is your only way out. Unfortunately, not everyone can go for it; I mean, you cannot opt for a laser surgery unless your doctor offers you proper clearance. Apart from that, it is extremely expensive and not suitable for everyone’s pocket. As if that was not enough, you also need to worry about its after-affects; a lot of people continue to suffer from surgery-related side-effects long after they have taken their leave from the surgery table. Mostly importantly, you would need to take a long absence leave from your office, as you would want to offer your body enough time to recover from the surgery.

The other extreme is that you use natural fruits and vegetables for your acne scar removal treatment. You can say, use lemon juice, oatmeal powder, apple cider vinegar, aloe vera gel, etc., to get rid of acne scars. Unfortunately, it is easier said than done! These natural treatments take a long time to offer you the desired results: that is, only if you are consistent with the treatment! The other thing you need to worry about is time: you either need to have enough time to make the medicines yourself at home, or enough money to buy the respective supplements from outside. Then again, not all supplements are equally effective!

In between these two extremes fall the acne blemish creams. Acne scar creams offer you quicker results than say, the ‘lemon juice’ treatment. Now I don’t know about you, but I am both lazy and short on time, so these creams fit my bill perfectly. They are also quite affordable, and rarely come with any side-effects, because they are mostly made from natural substances! If you are like me and want something to help you get rid of your acne blemishes in the comfort and privacy of your home, there is no better alternative to acne blemish removal creams!

Of course, just like anything else, not all acne scar creams are created equal, which is why you must research all the acne cream products meticulously before choosing the best one for yourself. There are lots of brands: all promising you the moon, all claiming to offer you instant results, but not all of these creams are effective. If you don’t do your research, you would be wasting months upon months in hopeless trial and error and eventually become disappointed! So, whenever you want a good acne scar removal cream for yourself, do your research diligently, then find that one that has worked for a lot of people; chances are that, if you have similar scars, then that product might work for you too! Good luck!

I know how you feel. I suffer from acne, eczema, and have had what my dermatologist thinks is folliculitis for over a year. They’ve but me on antibacterial drugs, creams, lotions, specific body washes but nothing really works. For the past 6 months or so, I’ve been using Amlactin lotion and although my symptoms have not gone away, they are greatly reduced to the point that I feel comfortable again in wearing sleeveless shirts

i always had this problem, but you know my skin looks way much better (actually no acne at all) since i use sweet almond oil as a makeup remover. i know you think is a oil and that it’s not good for oily skin, but that’s not true, your skin becomes very bright beautiful and no acne at all.

Urgh… sorry to hear that, that sounds so bad! I have sensitive skin myself, the problem with all these sensitive skin care products are that they’re not really meant for acne skin, so while you’re trying to keep your eczema under control, you might be using products that trigers your acnes, just because they’re usually very greasy. Recently I came across this amazing sensitive skincare brand called Sebamed. They’re fairly new in the U.S, but after I did some digging, I found out that they’ve actually been around for decades, they’re from Germany. Their product feels light on the skin, not greasy at all! and they’re also a dermatologist developed sensitive skin care product! I believe they have a acne line called Clear Face, so works on sensitive skin with acne problems.

their website is http://www.sebamedusa.com

Hope this helps =)

I used to have terrible acne on my back. really terrible and it even hurt sometimes when I laid down. On my face I still have some little pimples but it isn’t bad a t all. I went to the dermatologist, who prescribed me a cream: “erilyc”, that worked quite well but was not enough to make all this bad acne to disappear. so I decided to take a special contraceptive pill who worked just geniously on my acne, because it helped hormonal regulation. I have been taking it for 3 years now and I don’t have any single acne pimple on my back anymore! I know that taking the pill is a controversial subject, but really I don’t regret this. I also have eczema on my forearms because I am allergic to chlorine and I get it when I go to the pools where too much of this chemical in put the water, or when I use some cleansing products containing chlorine. for now my doctor haven’t found anything better than to give me creams… so I just avoid it.

I can’t comment on the Eczema, but I’ve found the best way to keep my acne under control is to use simple cleanser, toner and then moisturizer once daily before I put my makeup on.

Try to change your diet. May be that would help. It is our unhealthy diet that help the acne to grow.

The most reliable option is to consult a dermatologist! It will be a bit more expensive, but usually it is worth, because only a dermtologist can tell you exactly what to do, after finding out the cause for that!

Hey :)

I don't really suffer from eczema, but I go back and forth with acne. I have to second many of these ladies with suggesting visiting a dermatologist or even better a cosmetic dermatologist who offers facials. Sometimes it is an underlying issue, which they can identify and treat through topical/oral methods. However, and I'm a bit embarrassed to admit this, sometimes it's just owner neglect. I sometimes forget to wash my face (especially my brow region) before bed and I know that doesn't help. What's nice about the facial is that it's kind of like a massage or a dental cleaning - it gives you a new opportunity to care for your skin after a professional has.

Just treat yourself a couple times a year and enjoy!

I have been using citrus clear - Control Acne Wash since a month now. This wash worked best for me. No tightness or stinging after wash, just a thorough clean skin. i tried endless product like proactiv, and all. And my search now ends here. I am consumer like u. But from my past experience i would recommend citrus clear - Control Acne Wash is a product to reach for acne. This cleanser made difference for me.
