I feel your pain. I have eczema and sun damage, so mine isn’t really predictable either! I’ve been working with my dermatologist aggressively to get it under control.

I have exzema and a friend of mine’s mom used some Clinique Redness Reducing powder on her wedding day and it helped hide a lot of the redness. Maybe it’d help you?

Hey cbcs520, we are weekend twins, not quite date twins, but close enough! 🙂

I have Eczema and it SUCKS…It seems to flair up on my feet/ankles, which isn’t horrible, except that I’m having an outdoor wedding and I wanna wear sandals but I don’t want it to show up in pictures! I’m hoping to keep it under control so it won’t be a problem.

I use an AMAZING cream/lotion that my doctor recommended called CeraVe. It not only moisturizes, it actually repairs the top layer of your skin. You can get it over the counter at a drug store/grocery store. I LOVE it!

Oh, I’ve been to the dermatologist more than a few times lol They are the ones that recommended the lotion…I have to get medicine, and steroids when it gets really bad, but when it calms down (and any time in between) I use the lotion religiously. It keeps it moisturized.

I’ve heard that cutting out dairy is supposed to help, because a lot of times food allergies/intolerances you may not even know you have can make skin problems worse (and dairy is one of the most common), but I just can’t bring myself to do it! I love milk and cheese too much lol

My mom has psoriasis really, really bad. I just had my first spot of it pop up on my foot about a month ago, but it went away with a steroid cream. Hopefully I don’t get it as bad as her, but she always flares up when in stressful situations. Try to stay calm – any way your doctor would prescribe something like Ativan, just to make sure you could stay chill??

I have KP (Keratosis Pilaris) also known as Chicken Pox skin and like somethingblue11 my derm prescribed Cerave, but it is now over the counter. It helps reduce the redness and bumpiness. I used to use it religiously (twice daily) and it really helped out, but I stopped and everything is bumpy and red again. I have 5 months to get it all toned down!! Undecided

I get it on my scalp, which actually isn’t that bad because my hair covers it up when I have outbreaks.  But it’s a pain to try and treat, because I can apply the cremes to my own scalp.  I’ve had some severe outbreaks where it start to inch out past my hair onto my neck.  I just want it to be gone for the wedding!  I have stocked up on the compounded ointment I use and the prescription shampoo to make sure it doesn’t creep back up before the wedding.

It can be so so embaressing though, because it itches, then it flakes, then it just looks like I am gross and have dandruff.  I have been to the dermo a couple times now and I think I have a formula that is finally working out.  I hope that after the wedding it will just go away because my stress level will be so much lower!

I have psoriasis and am actually getting worse since going to the dermatologist.  (I think it is just wedding stress) but cbcs520 my doctor would not even talk about any of the injections since i am still have all of my “girl” organs.  He said that they did not know what the effects were yet.  Can i ask, did your doctor ever say anything like that to you, or are you past those years?  Sorry if that is too personal of a question, but now i am confused.

My mom suffered from horrible eczema for years before successfully combatting it with antibiotics.  Nothing topical worked for her, but once she went on antibiotics it cleared up slowly and it only flares up now on her hands under extreme stress.  I know they’re two different conditions, but is there any possible relationship with an infection?
