Eczema slowly going away

It's been a month since the eczema appeared and it is slowly going away. Mine still peels off slowly and the pain of it is still there. The itching is unbearable and my body feels like it is on fire from the inside. I just don't know what to do after all those prescription medications and the eczema happens every summer. Not sure whether I should change my diet again or try new methods to get rid of the eczema. I know for sure it is caused by heat and stress (from job hunting and money woes). Anyone here know what effective methods to use to treat eczema? I find it embarrassing to suffer eczema every year and I hate treating it just for temporary relief.

College fast approaching, PC upgrade in progress

I'll be living in the dormitory (residence hall) at my local university for my last year with my younger brother. The main reason is that I need to get my bachelor's degree as soon as possible. Another reason is that I need a job to pay for my expenses. Living with my parents is good and all, but I can't depend on them due to them approaching senior status. Georgia is a joke when it comes to finding jobs. I couldn't even find one in the past year. Now that my father has to undergo rectal surgery and my brother seeing a dermatologist for his eczema, it is time for me to pay back to them for all they have done for me. Nobody wants to hire my knowledge and expertise when it comes to businesses and PC technology, which I'm remarkable at.

I'm still buying components for my PC and I bought a solid state drive for the first time. The OCZ Technology 60 GB Vertex 2 Series SATA II 2.5-Inch Solid State Drive (SSD) OCZSSD2-2VTXE60G was incredibly fast and my HDD never had fast loading speeds on boot-up and applications. SSD is the new wave of storage, but the price of flash memory is still too expensive. I still can't afford a replacement laptop like ASUS Republic of Gamers G73JH-A1 17-Inch Gaming Laptop (Black), but it is one of my goals to get a decent gaming laptop. Either that or winning some random contest to get something.

I'm still doing penny auctions but rather slowly due to limited funding. My winnings are usually small and I can't afford bids to get at least a Wii with Wii Sports Resort - Black, but I want to give it to a friend who is leaving for medical school this Fall. It's not too bad but you definitely need money to play penny auction sites.

Sorry, haven't been blogging due to illness

Yes I haven't been blogging for a while due to my yearly eczema. It covers all over my body and comes out during the summer when the climate is really hot and dry. My eczema rarely comes out in the cold fall and winter seasons, but comes out later in the spring and summer. I have no health insurance and I can't find any work at all in Georgia. Tried networking, talking to hiring managers, and inside connections but no dice. My younger brother and I suffer the same skin disorder and my father is ill. This causes my mother to worry so much about the family's financial future and it isn't looking so well.

I'm trying to figure out a definite way to get rid of my eczema, so I can continue job hunting. I can't show up to work looking like I have leprosy. Except my skin is red, wrinky, thick, and peeling off all over my body. Don't worry, I'm still bidding on penny auction sites and just won a video game for $4.03 total. I still have some luck left in me and I'm observing cautiously on multiple PA sites. I'm no power bidder or jumper due to lack of financial funding, but observing PA sites to have my own PA site one day.

With all the scams popping up, Penny Auction Watch and Penny Burners step up to protect bidders from fraudulent PA sites. Bidfather is the latest penny auction site to appear and has establish 3 wins per day and 10 wins every 28 days to give others a fair chance at winning. Sites with no win limits are just impossible due to either power bidders or bots shilling to inflate the price of auction items. Oddly enough, one site is interested in my consulting services due to my experience with a few PA sites. I'm doing my services for free so the PA site will continue to exist instead of shutting down for good.

I feel embarrassed for having this lifelong skin disorder eczema, but I have to sharpen my mind to prepare for my last year at my university. I'm planning to succeed in business, but finding a steady flow of income after I graduate is my first priority.
