I'm sorry that you were treated that way, OP. I have excema on my arms, legs, neck, and sometimes face. I get lots of comments and actually had a woman squirt her scented lotion on my arms to "help my dry skin" (which led to a week of pain, bleeding, and hives when my wackjob skin went CRAZY).
Keep on truckin'....there are plenty of bad people out there but even more good. By the way, I got an excema product tip from a waitress with excema who waited on my table...I'll pass it on, PM me. GREAT PRODUCT!
And that was a good experience with my yicky spots! They do happen!
