[IP] Eczema



Nancy,
I have a lot of problems with Eczema.  I get it anywhere on my body that has
contact with fabric for long periods of time.  Such as my elbows since i
have a habit of resting them, my armpits, my underwearline from the elastic,
etc.  It is itchy and is made even more itchy with dry skin.  The lotion
should help some but not all of the itching.  I also get it when I come in
contact to things I am allergic to.  It may be caused on some people with
dry skin only, but my families history has always been allergies.

It tends to get better if you don't itch it since it is a rash and not just
dry skin.  One thing I found for the times it itched so much I had to itch
it, was to place something really cold against it.  Such as a package of
frozen veggies, a can of cold soda, an ice pack, etc.

I wish you luck,
Sherry

Hi All,

Have a question: Have any of you Humalog users ever gotten an itchy kind of
a 
rash not at the site but anywhere else on the body?  I have gotten this
itchy 
stuff and the skin guy says it's eczema  He is having me use this really 
greasy stuff called Elma twice a day and telling me my skin is dry and that 
is the problem.  Well, it isn't that dry not with this Elma.  When I get in 
the shower the water beads on me like a freshly waxed car.  I still itch and

the stuff will move around on me.  It looks like poison ivy and itches like 
it too.  I know how dry skin itches and it isn't the same type of itch to
me. 
 Anyhow, I;m afraid that I have traced it down to the insulin and am hoping 
that it isn't because I really like the Humalog.

Thanks, Nancy pumping 12 years
