I was what is called an "eczema child". I had eczema in periods, first when I was an infant (around joints like elbows and knees), as a teenager on my arms and as a grown up on my hands and fingers. Not all the time but lasting for quite some time.
I haven't had any problems with eczema for a long time (even if I always have to watch for not getting my hands wet too long which makes them break out) but when I started flushing it resurfaced again on my hands, fingers and around the knees. So, I guess what's causing the eczema's been in my liver all along.
I'm looking forward to ridding myself of this and I'm glad the condition of my skin is one way to monitor my progress.
