Today is my first full day of giving up the use of topical steroids in an effort to rid myself of eczema. Currently, my skin is in a state of distress. My stomach, chest, back, and hip area are all extremely inflamed. My arms, legs, neck, and face are also showing rashy areas. The area behind my knees is very red and bumpy. My skin feels hot to the touch, and is very painful. I am hoping that this long journey will be successful. I'll post my whole story and background information later, and possibly some pictures.
