Is it really eczema and not fungus? I had something similar, also on just one foot, and I treated it like eczema for years. It wasn't until I started treating it like athlete's foot that it cleared up for good. I'll never forget the look on my dermatologists' face when that happened. LOL

What did you treat it with? I don't think that is what it is. My husband does not have it and we use the same shower.

eczema is an inflammation.

I believe that carbohydrates complicates inflammation

I have plaque psoriasis (also inflammation) and it flared up a lot before I started to go keto.

after a few months doing keto, I not longer have flareups

Here are some good starting points to read

The dermatologist says diabetes has not been shown to cause eczema but can make it worse. I have eczema on my arm that clearly is affected by high blood sugar. Get it back down, it goes away but takes a long time to heal. I know from previous experience, not having enough citrus slows or stops healing in me, so I try to remember that - raises your blood sugar though as fruit is relatively high.
