    Hand eczema and RA Who knew?

    I have had bad "hand eczema" since I was 10 and am in my 30's now. Haven't gone to a doc or dermatologist in over 12 years because it's just so frustrating that there is nothing really out there to cure eczema just sooth. Well I had a really bad flare up this time and decided to pay the doc a visit with hopes that in the past 12 years there had been some kind of miracle cream invented. No luck there but for the first time they tested my blood and the results came back as RA. I never knew the two were linked. So with that being said and my absolute disknowlege of RA and not having many arthritis symptoms are things going to get worse for me in the future?

    My dad has osteoarthritis in his knees and shoulders, not to mention scoliosis. A friend told me about a homeopathic pain relief lotion that has worked. After a few applications, his pain was significantly reduced. Now he applies it morning and night. www.PainLube.com Use Promo Code 72346 for FREE shipping & a gift. It has helped my dad so much, I decided to share this with other people. It's worth trying.
