just want to share also my experience during those years im suffering from nummular eczema, at first i thought its bulutong, then, scabies (as per the dermatologist in dermclinic). i started having this when I was 20 y.o. and now im 27 and still having this (not anymore nummular eczema) problem on my skin.
i was treated by a derma in St. Lukes in QC, sobrang ok naman gamot kaso mejo pricey then after this derma, i tried a derma in The Medical City, until now I still make my check-ups with this dermatologist.
ok na nummular eczema ko, my problem now is the side effect of having nummular eczema is you'll be prone on having keratosis pilaris or (KP), i have this now. i think mas ok pa nummular eczema kc yung itsura is at least parang coin and hindi scattered sa legs ko unlike sa KP na ang dami. pero when it comes to medicine, at least ok for long-term use ang sa KP unlike sa NE na puro with steroid.
hay, sana gumaling na tayong lahat, as per my dermatologists, the cause of having this is still unknown and there is still no cure for this, only prevention. we just have to keep our skin moisturized, eh sobrang tamad pa naman ako mag-lotion especially pag mainit tsaka ang hirap maghanap ng lotion na hindi ako mangangati or hindi makakapagpa-trigger ng sakit ko.
right now, im using nivea whitening lotion, the pink one. then sa soap, paiba-iba kasi trial and error din ako kung san ako hindi mangangati.
during the peak of my NE, i used cetaphil lotion, cetaphil soap, and cetaphil cleanser. hay..super pricey ng mga yan, mas mahal pa sa gamot.. =(
God bless sisses!
