i have had eczema my entire life. i suffered growing up - as i got older it affected me more around my lips. i would scratch so much in my sleep that i had literally gouged above and below my lips and would wake up to blood dried on my nails/fingers and pillow. A&D ointment REALLY helped when i hit my mid 20's. RX's did NOTHING and at times would make it worse. Berts Bees lip ointment/chapstick helps as well. BUT when i am having a 'flare up' (due to stress usually), it burns and causes more itching initially - as i type i am having the worst flare up around my lips since i hit adulthood and NOTHING is helping :( i cant sleep because of how miserably uncomfortable i am. After reading some of the posts, i didnt even think of a food connection and will be cleansing and refining my diet first thing in the morning. good luck to you that suffer - DONT SCRATCH!!!!
