AD Late in Life

Dear NEA Scratch Pad:

I find your newsletters very informative and interesting. Thank you so much for sharing them. I developed AD late in life after a period of extreme stress. After many courses of varying strengths of prednisone and topical soothers and after learning to manage stress I am pretty free of AD except for some flares in my hands when I do too much with them—cleaning, gardening, etc. Your article on hand eczema in the Summer 2011 issue was great. Thank you again.
