Hmmm.

I have asthma. The first time I saw a respirologist, he asked whether I also have hay fever and eczema. "Yes," I replied, wondering why he cared. "They generally go together," he said, explaining that all three ailments are caused by hyper-reactivity in the immune system.

Low-dose steroid ointment is the only treatment that has ever done my eczema a blind bit of good.
