Dishydrotic eczema...anyone?

Post by Wonderfulworld » Sat Nov 15, 2008 1:23 pm

Hi
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?

Wonderfulworld,

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.

Thanks Alicia.
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.

Wonderfulworld,

Things that aggrevate my eczema are hot water, dry air and cleaning w/o wearing rubber gloves. My skin will blister and split if I let the eczema go too far.

I have eczema on my forearms and it is irritated by certain chemicals, hot water, fluffy jumpers and most importantly by stress! The more stressed I am the worse it seems to get!

take care

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.
