Hi. Here are a few. This is far worse than I've ever had and its been occasional flare ups previously where this time its been for good month but not all as bad as this. As mentioned its been on and off for around 5 years with no obvious trigger. My wife is also suffering similar however not as bad and she stared with it a little before me.

this looks like very severe eczema

have you had it biopsied?

have you seen a dermatologist?

Customer: replied 14 days ago.
Hi. Yes but I've had so many conflicting diagnosises. I've been put on a waiting list to have allergy tests and different doctors are prescribing different lotions and conflicting with other doctors.

This is very very likely to be severe eczema
