liquid bandaid

has anyone used this for your eczema? I just bought some today to put on my fingers because i am tired of buying bandaids and gauze to protect them. I have terrible hand eczema and it is even on my fingers as well. I put it on and the itching has stopped for now at least.
we will see if it works to heal them up.

I hate you eczema....



Never heard of using that. I use latex gloves when I have a flareup. Keep us posted on your experience.

I really hope this works for you! I've had eczema on my hands all my life- ugh it sucks!
It should work, just watch for irritation- I tried what you're trying about 2 years ago, but I was allergic to something in the solution, I think :(.

Ah- it should be noted, for people looking for this: I mean- the irritation, in my case, started as soon as the liquid bandaid had finished drying, and got the worst it was going to quickly- so, I don't think it'd be something where the irritation builds overtime, I guess I should have just said 'If you're going to be allergic, it won't sneak up on you; if you don't have a bad reaction right away, you're probably safe. I know my sister tried it, and it worked for her!

Just be very careful when using any kind of barrie or bandge in addition to topical steroid use. I have learned this lesson the extremely hard way! Bandaging an area that has recently been treated with steriods forces the steriod into your skin deeper (WONDERFUL for treating the eczema), and can cause perioral dermatitis! Trust me, you do NOT want to add this new misery to your already miserable condition!!!

it has helped alot! i wash my hands with an aloe vera soap, then i apply the liquid bandaid to the spots that have cracked and split from the eczema. My fingers are finally looking better :)

    I have cancer

    I had to have a lung biopsy, and I have cancer. A very rare form that doesn't have any standard treatment. There just isn't a lot of case history for this. It is epithelioid hemangio endothelioma. The cancer support group doesn't talk every day. I can understand why. I'm waiting for the oncologist to call back for an appointment, and will hear in the next few days. Who knew. Ha!
