I do have bad allergies. I even get allergy shots for them, but the eczema for no explained reason is new this year. In the past, I could tie my eczema to a product I was allergic to (like your lavendar cream), and then I could tie it to stress, but more recently, there's no apparent explanation for why I have gotten this eczema that keeps re-occurring. The only thing I can think of is that recently I was on travel to an area that had a high mold content in the air, which aggravated my allergies greatly. Even now that I'm away from the mold, my skin is still very sensitive, although my sinus congestion and other allergic symptoms have cleared up. The advice of a homeopath may be just what I need.
