  • Try Phisoderm. I get eczema but not on my face so I am not sure what to recommend. Have you asked your doctor?

  • Have you seen a derm for a prescription topical ointment? There are several out, eledel and others but I'd start with a trip to my GP or derm guy.

  • I have eczema on my hands and legs.In the winter when I take a shower I do not use soap on my legs. What you may want to do is take an oatmeal bath, You can go to any pharmysist and talk to them about it they know more about medicine then doctors do because medicine is what they study.They could give you advise on eczema.If you tell them you can't afford to go to a dr. then they would advise you.It's always best to stay with one pharmacy because they would be more apt to help you out.May opinion.Good luck!!
