I am 27, african american with mild acne and eczema, that is sensitive with hyper-pigmentation from the eczema. What is the best treatment for me?
Can make worse: Squeezing or scratching/rubbing the skin can cause the eczema to worsen and also cause post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation or hypopigmentation or discolorations and scarring.

Eczema and adrenals: The answer is no, they are not related. Adrenal failure (addison's) can include some hyperpigmentation and/or vitiligo, but not eczema. I wondered why you asked; i see that the "adrenal fatigue" blogs are full of this nonsense. "adrenal fatigue" is a fake diagnosis. The people who are pushing "adrenal fatigue" are trying to link all the ills of mankind together. Talk to your doctor. ...Read more
