Annoying things to hear when you have eczema
1. "Stop scratching"
It really gets on my nerves.I would if I could but when you get eczema you itch 24/7 in different parts of your body at the same time. So scratching once in a while is actually controlling it otherwise we would scratch all the time. It is not easy and it is almost impossible not to scratch. Do we hurt our skin? yes, we do but it is not that easy and well I have lived with it for 30 years, so I can understand this better that someone that hasn't suffered from it. Itchiness is pretty much part of my life and I really take I lot of will power to control the scratching, so people consider that before you tell someone with eczema to "stop scratching"
