You could be right. Uveitis is associated with a lot of auto-immune and auto inflammatory diseases. Eczema, dermatitis and thyroid diseases could be auto-immune in nature. You can discuss it with your treating doctor. To read more about conditions associated with uveitis, you can follow this link - Auto-immune diseases are more common in women. I hope that helps.
