“Eczema is one of the most common and chronic inflammatory skin conditions. In eczema the skin becomes dry and cracked. Eczema is often itchy with blisters and other inflammatory changes. Eczema can occur on any part of skin surface, but when it develops in armpits it is great distressing and annoyance for the patient.” http://www.tandurust.com/skincare/eczema-armpits-causes-remedies.html

My skin irritation as become very bad ever since it’s warmer now and I haven’t been able to get anymore of a natural soap I tried. Also I have a issue of liking very warm to hot water, it’s soothing to me, but I don’t too hot is bad for the skin; at least that’s what I keep reading. It is extreme bad under my arms and it looks horrible; it is sickening to look at.
It burns and is sore; makes me a little self-conscience about my appearance. The only other place I’ve noticed it is behind my knees and front of my neck but it’s not no where near bad as under my arms.

“Eczema in armpit is more troublesome than armpit odor and blackened armpit skin. Armpit eczema is also called seborrhic dermatitis. Tiny bumps filled with pus may appear as a result of secondary infection. An infected eczema in armpits if not treated in time may lead to many systemic complications.” http://www.tandurust.com/skincare/eczema-armpits-causes-remedies.html

I have to remember not to scratch and make sure to keep my skin moisturized. It’s said that skin problems are known amongst most with fibromyalgia; it could be inflammation in out bodies causing it.

Skin Irritations

“Even if the skin appears normal on the surface, there is a lot going on beneath the surface to fuel your skin irritations and itchy/burning sensations.”

Today I’m dealing with dry skin, which I’ve been dealing with for years. I’ve always had skin issues since I was a child, pretty much the same as ones complain about having with fibromyalgia. So for me I think well maybe I’ve had fibromyalgia all my life and not know it [its possible.]
And you would think that an easy solution would be to put on lotion and everything will be alright, but it’s never really that simple with fibromyalgia. One problem starts with finding something that helps, then you run out of it and don’t have the money to buy more. Then there’s when you have rubbed your skin down, and you still have to deal with tender, sore, and dry spots that randomly come up.

The worst though is when you can’t find anything that works, and you want rip your skin off because it itches so badly. Some times there is this crawling sensation, which makes you not want anything to touch you. It’s not just the body, it’s my head also. My head itches like crazy, and just like with my skin I have to be careful not to scratch hard because it makes my scalp sore.

I’ve had one really bad experience, which I could not find any relief and I just laid in a tub of warm water and that’s the only thing that helped a bit. But I couldn’t say in the tub forever, so when I got out the itching would start again. Sometimes I think it’s my nerves, and staying hydrated helps a bit.

“fibromyalgia sufferers seem to battle an unfair share of skin problems. In fact, it is thought that between 70% and 80% of people with fibromyalgia suffer from skin problems associated with their illness. On top of these skin problems, these complaints often make fibromyalgia symptoms even worse. Dry itchy skin can make sleeping difficult, and increase pain and fatigue. Skin problems can also make it hard to choose clothes to wear, to eat certain foods, or just carry on with daily life.”

“From rashes to break outs, skin complaints associated with fibromyalgia are numerous. While most of these skin problems are not health threats, they can be very annoying. If you suffer from fibromyalgia and notice that you are having skin problems, consult with your health care provider. He may be able to provide you with appropriate treatment.”

Daily moisturizer is more like hour to hour, or minute to minute with my skin.
