After you got off Mirena did your eczema go away? Thanks. I got mirena a year ago, and have had the eczema for a year now too.
TRIPPY on Aug, 19, 2011:
I have had Mirena for 3 1/2 years and I started getting eczema patches all over my hands. It has driven me crazy for years, so yesterday I finally decided to have it removed. I am praying that this clears up with time and stays away, it has been so painful. The palms of my hands are severly soar all the time and itch like crazy. I have talked to many doctors about this, which completley acted as if this could not be caused by the Mirena. Doctors implanting this in their patients need to do a little more studying on what they are giving women for birth control.
From this study (2 weeks ago):
A few years ago I started having very itchy leg spots possibly coincidental with starting Gemfibrozil or Lopid. My original doctor had me discontinue Gemfibrozil with months and the rash decreased. My new doctor put me back on Gemfibrozil twice a day at 600 mg dose. My red itchy legs condition returned and got worse, diagnosed by dermatologist as Eczema. It is spread to front and back of lower legs in a solid patch of dry, rough, flaky skin. Currently I am applying Fluocinonide cream to reduce itching but decided to stop taking Gemfibrozil to see if this eliminates or reduces the eczema rash. It is the only correlation I can guess at this time. I am stopping Gemfibrozil as of today June 16, 2014 and will report back the results.
