Suffering From Eczema Scars

I've spoken before about my eczema (you can read the post here). I used to suffer really bad with it, in the past I've had it all over my body but especially on my arms and legs. With my first pregnancy, my eczema was the worst it had ever been, I didn't even want to leave the house but since then it's got a lot better, thankfully. And although my eczema has got a lot better, suffering so much with it has caused me a few problems - including scars. 


My legs used to be absolutely covered in scars, there were more scars than skin visible at one point and it really upset me. I could never show my legs, and I even used to have to wear tights on really hot summer days - which only aggravated my eczema. I really struggled.

To try and improve the look of the scars, mainly on my legs I tried lots of different products, moisturisers, fake tan and when I was alone I used to have my legs on show so the sun could get to them. Nothing really seemed to make a difference. When the scars wouldn't fade, I even consider scar removal - which is a bit more of a drastic option but it's something I definitely thought about. My scars used to make me so miserable, I'd do anything to help improve the look of them. 


Sadly, Eczema is such a common skin disease - which means that a lot of people must also suffer with scarring, but don't let it get you down. They will fade naturally and gradually, but if it's something that really upsets you, there's no harm in exploring options. Just make sure you do your research.

Have you ever suffered with Eczema?
