This Just In: Eczema Blows.

So after doing lots of web research, a lot of scratching and a LOT of internal bitching, I think I've determined that my horrible rash that never, ever, ever seems to go away really is eczema, like Care Now said. And it's been extra, extra bad lately.

I'm pretty sure it's contributing to a lot of my downward feelings, including even the fats. See, the rash is disgusting to me, so I assume it's going to be disgusting to everyone, so I sort of feel...erm...un-sexy? Plus it fucking hurts. Itches, yes, but in such a constant way that it just hurts.

I have no clue how to deal with it, get rid of it, make it easier to deal with, anything. I've gotten lots of good information from the internet, so I think it's time to spend a lot of quality time with oatmeal baths.

I know a few of you have mentioned that you also suffer (or have suffered) eczema before. HOW THE HELL DO YOU DEAL WITH IT?? This is getting me way more down than my first rash (which went away on its own) and my scabies (which was easily dealt with by DEADLY POISON). There is, as far as I can tell, no "cure" for eczema and the fact that this shit might be around the rest of my life is seriously, seriously depressing me.

Seriously. I just want my legs to stop itching and not look like they are covered in nasty pink scales.
