I have excema and lately it has been really bad- as a matter fact, it's on my neck and looks like a hickey/passion mark. I'm a teacher and have kids asking me what it is!

Holy hell, Stacey! That was one of my first signs. I had it two weeks before I realized that I may be preggers. In fact, there was another woman on the board who had it on her neck as well. It was almost like a raised rug burn, but definitely like a hickey and mine was on the left side of my neck. Believe it or not from research I did online it's a major sign of pregnancy.They say that because the blood is concentrated with all the new hormones that if you were a child who had eczema it will come back when you're pregnant. I also have it on the inside of my thighs and my back. It just appeared for no reason. Much love and baby dust!!****

Sugar Pie- first off (yeah) second, mine is on the left side too. I have meds to put on it, but I swear it doesn't help at all lately!

Stacey: I know it won't help. It's relentless and it almost feels like the more you scratch it the worse it gets and spreads. I wish I could help.. the only thing that I know to keep applying to it was carmex (I know it's for the lips, but dude it felt better) and I also applied Skin-So-Soft by Avon. I had it leftover from the summer to keep bugs away, but I was so desperate I used anything and everything. And it worked!!! Much love and baby dust****

Stacey - I have it too on my inner thighs, and the only thing that's relieved the itching for me is hydrocortisone cream. It relieves the itching somewhat, but it still takes a few days for it to stop itching...and just about that time, I'll get a new spot! I hate it!!

thanks guys..I actually use elidel (prescription) it helps stops the itching, but the redness is def. still there...between that and all my pimples and red spots lately, I feel REALLY attractive ;)
