just developed dishydrotic eczema.
By chance, anyone else had it?
It's also called pomphylox, or housewives eczema.
Probably more related to all the other allergies I have, but just interested to know if any other MS'ers, or Copaxoners have it?
Yes, I also have this type of eczema. I started having symptoms about 4 years before I was officially diagnosed with MS. I also take Copaxone. I don't think the Copaxone has affected the eczema any. I don't think my eczema ever really goes away. It is just gets worse sometimes.
Have you noticed things that make it worse for you?
It's a nuisance, isin't it?
I think it might be related to hormones with me. It appeared, severly, 5 months after giving birth and it is not going away. I have also been washing my hands and using stronger cleaning chemicals to do with cleaning bottles and surfaces with my baby around. Perhaps that has triggered it.
I have had MS for 8 years and no eczema. Four and a half months ago I started Tecfidera. Well 2 weeks ago I developed dishydrotic eczema on both palms of hands and both soles of feet. Neuro stopped Tecfidera. I want to go back to Tysabri - 6 years no flares or eczema - but I am JCV+. Not sure if this helps but at least I found others with MS and eczema.
