If you've had eczema for any length of time you already know how uncomfortable and distracting it can be for you on a day to day basis. You try not to think about it, try not to feel the itching... until it becomes too unbearable and you just want to scratch and scratch and scratch.... It almost starts to feel the tiniest bit better until you realize that now you've scratched your skin raw and oh great, now you're bleeding too! And so goes the world of an eczema sufferer.
On the bright side, eczema is genetically based and so it can't be 'caught' by coming in contact with someone who has it, although try telling that to the people who see you scratching and very carefully shift away from you on line at the store, at the monthly department meeting or out at the park with the kids. Part of you can't totally blame them since in the back of your mind you think you might do the same thing if you didn't know why the other person was scratching, but that doesn't make you feel any happier to see them trying hard not to stare at you and act as if nothing is going on as they inch further away.
Sound familiar? Eczema is not life threatening but it can have a serious impact on your day to day life, controlling what you wear, how you eat and how much sleep you may or may not be getting at night, not to mention the people who are giving you a whole lot of extra breathing room. It is estimated that about 15 million people in the United States suffer from some form of eczema so while you may feel alone, know that there are many others who are sharing your experiences.
