I have eczema, have had it since I was little. I'm allergic to basically everything, cats, dogs, wheat, dairy, soap powder, I have bad reactions to changes in water. My skin all over my body breaks out in eczema, my face gets red dry flaky blotches on it. I have a bad thing about my nose as the skin between my nostrils comes down lower and I look like a witch. Basically I just hate the way I look and it's in my head all the time, I hate it, I have no idea how to make it better, I've been to the doctor so many times, so many creams, antibiotics, allergy tests, everything you can imagine. Nothing makes much difference. I hate how I look, I used to self harm. I feel like I'm never ever going to find someone who'll love me because I look so awful.

I wish that I had a great answer for you that would instantly make you feel better. I do not. However I have some things for you to think about:
First of all, you do not have an ability to control what you look like. You are doing everything that you can to help and that is all you can do. It is what it is. I look like a bear. I am 6'7" and weight 315lbs! Not much I can do about it other than not try to scare people too badly. :-)
Second you can control what you think about, but it may take time. There is a saying, you can look up the origins if you wish, but it says: "Whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable—if anything is excellent or praiseworthy—think about such things." You can make the choice to think of the good things in life, things you can do, you can be, etc.
Also please remember that yes we live in a world where everyone thinks looks are important. They are not. They fade away. And I am not saying that you do not look nice, I have no idea. But I suspect that it must be hard for a young woman to not look as she would like in today's world. Again make a choice about the things you are going to think about and focus on.
There is nothing that you have said that I would think precludes you from becoming a successful business person, or a coach, or a pilot, or a scientist, or helping people less fortunate, or whatever it is that your talents lead you to do.
I am sure you have heard this before, but it does not make it less true... You want someone to love you for your mind and your heart and your soul.
There is a scripture that I have always found interesting it says "I praise you because I am fearfully and wonderfully made; your works are wonderful, I know that full well." That applies to you as much as it applies to everyone. It may not be how you feel, but how you feel does not change that you were wonderfully made.
I hope that this helps you think though things a little bit. I wish you well Sweet One.0
