I am really fed up.
For years I have been having a chronic seborrhoic eczema on the face. It started on the nose and scalp and now it's on the eyebrows and above the upper lip. I used creams with cortisone and batrafen but they hardly work at all and are not good at treating the symptoms.

But a few years ago I also started getting eczemas in the genital area. I went to the doc and he said it's fungus and prescribed me batrafen and it also helps against it BUT the stuff comes back all the time. I asked him it if could be a seborrhoic eczema and he said no, not in this area. But this stuff comes back all the time and it looks exactly like the seborrhoic eczema. Basically he told me that I just have to cope with it. Great.

I am so sick of skin problems. I also have funugs on my toe nail which is also not really treatable unless I take pills for many months which are liver damaging. I am disappointed of dermatologists. They don't seem to be able to really help you all they can do is prescribe creams and that's it. :(

It's really depressing when you have all this stuff on your body and you have to apply cream everywhere. :mad:
