Hi all I'm a 31year old filipino female who has suffered with eczema since 4yrs old, I've learnt what works over the years, but lately I'm getting a lot of flare ups and i've always wondered about food testing, but my GP is useless where else can you go? Many Thanks Q

Someone probably needs to confirm this, but I would have thought you'd need to be referred to a specialist Dermatologist in the first instance and if necessary an Immunologist.

Hope you find the trigger whatever it is.

If you already see a consultant dermatologist they can arrange patch tests and blood tests (if not ask your GP to refer you to a Dermatologist, if your eczema is bad they should do this automatically as from memory a GP spends the equivalant of something like only 2 days training on skin conditions which means you should always try and see a Dermatologist). Tell your GP you want referred to a Dermatologist at your local hospital as youre flare ups are getting worse & if he refuses to send you ask to see another GP. Good luck & I hope you get to see a specialist as your eczema will be much easier to control.

I have been a long-time sufferer of eczema on my hands and foderma serum is my favorite serum so far. It doesn't heal or solve the problem of having eczema, but it certainly makes it more bearable. It soothes dry and cracked skin and relieves some of the itching as well. I use it all over myself and my kids. Tip: if you are having a really itchy spell, keep the serum in the fridge. It feels extra soothing when it goes on cold!
