I've had allergies since I was young, and then diagnosed with eczema as well when I was about 14. So I've had it on and off my whole life, and let me tell you, pregnancy makes it soooo much worse. With my first baby, I had milder HG, but my eczema was so bad sometimes that I couldn't go out in public. I have better medicine these days, so the battle with eczema wasn't as severe. However, I could never get it to go away completely. I use a topical steroid, but very sparingly when I was pg with Kathleen. I hope you feel better soon, because HG is bad enough without eczema too. Make sure you get some treatment for it, but in the meantime, oatmeal baths are really great for the itch. I don't know if Aveeno products are available where you are, but those were the best I'd found.
