my daughter has been ill for the last 3 years with asthma, eczema and she has a blood IgE of 1700. Nothing much helps at all. We are on a long list of meds. Her face is constantly peeling and she has frequent skin infections. She hasn't left the house much all summer. I guess I just want to find out what others with these symptoms do to help them be able to enjoy life. She bathes and moisterizes daily; takes Clarinex and Singular. Now she just sleeps all the time. We had her thyroid checked, it's normal. She is cold all the time....is this normal for people with eczema? or is she just trying to cover up so no one can see her skin? She's so much fun when she feels good. This really started when she started 6th grade--I thought puberty but it just keeps getting worse. If we get eczema under control the asthma flares---just one long roller coaster.
Does anyone have any advice to offer?! I just want to help her.
