Do you or your Los have a severe case of eczema? I have an outbreak on my face my lips and area around and I have cream I use by what else do you use to help it not be so bad? I'm assuming since the area is so sensitive and I try not to itch it making it worse is killing me. I really need help with remedies or stuff that can help.

Thank you so much.!

Get some lotion containing borage or burdock or both. You can find it online or in health food stores/whole foods-type stores.

Is the cream you have a prescription?  My son had eczema really bad and would use a prescription cream plus Aveeno.  The Aveeno really helped when he applied it consistently.

Yes it's prescribed but when I was you get I had a very bad case and even the perscribed stuff wouldn't help but it was on my arms so I hid it but now as I'm older its right on my face. And I've tried that cetalil but that doesn't work. I'm more worried about my lips just to hide it because they itch so much like little bugs crawling all the time.
