Customer Question
I've been having dermatitis for...
I've been having dermatitis for 15 years. It's getting serious and the hyperpigmentation as well. I give up on every single treatment. I have used low potent topical corticosteroids to the highest ones. I moisturize my body 2 times per day with no benefit. It mostly flares up when I get for example nervous or anxious. So it's more stress-related. I need a relief, a solution, or even an answer to the question what's going on on my body?

I am sorry you are having such bad dermatiits

you should see a dermatologist and get a skin biopsy

you could have psoriasis in which case you may benefit from systemic biological agents which can help control your skin condition.

you may benefit from medications to help decrease your anxiety symptoms which could help decrease flair ups as well.

have you had a skin biopsy? have you been checked for psoriasis of your skin.

I feel better already! Thank you.

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.

You have been more help than you know. I seriously don't know what my sisters situation would be today if you had not gone above and beyond just answering my questions.
