Annoying habits

I honestly don't know what to do but my partner is driving me insane, he has a really bad case of eczema but I honestly can't cope with his constant scratching and skin picking. I feel awful for feeling like this but I get so annoyed by his incessant scratching & scalp picking, I honestly don't think he notices how much he does it. I have tried to speak to him about it but he just doesn't see why I have an issue he doesn't see it as a bad habit. I want him to get better but he doesn't seem bothered. I've suggested trying dif creams etc but he is so stubborn, any suggestions?

Do you cook for him? Try putting olive oil and or linseed oil in the dressings or food. Cutting out tomatoes and oranges cured my eczema.

Ess. oils like lavender are very effective on eczema too (mixed with olive oil) or chickweed cream. I sympathise, my dh keeps eating stuff that he knows gives him arthritis too. grin

Your name can give some people eczema too!!!
