  • maybe u can try homeopathic medicine. It helps your body build up immunity to it and fight it off.

  • My doctor suggested hydrocortizone for my daughter. I use Vaseline Intensive Care lotion on her 2-3 times a day especially after a bath. She has it all over her body because its dry in our apartment from the heat. We also keep a humidifier going 24/7. She still has it but its better with the lotion.
    I have eczema and nothing really helps me. Mine is so bad, I currently have a skin infection from it.
