I suffer from dyshidrotic eczema and I'm only 15. I don't have a severe case of it (knock on wood) i just really hope and pray it doesn't get worse. I'm not lying when I say that I have cried myself to sleep multiple times over this condition. To have this at such a young age is terrible. I constantly have to feel self-conscious and luckily none of my friends have ever really noticed. I have a little bit of a thing going on with this boy, and it disgusts me that I have to be worried about going out with him because I don't want to have to hold someone's hand. I'm sorry for posting this but I'm just happy to see that there are other people out there that have this problem. It's dreadful and I feel bad complaining about it when there are far worse problems I could have. But please, tell me that it doesn't get progressively worse. Also, I've read so many places that fasting can permanently cure eczema. I'm considering asking my dermatologist about it. I would do whatever it takes to get rid of this.
