I am on the verge of tears. The eczema on my hands is hurting me and Ive recently flared up again. Its very dry, stings, sometimes itchy, cracked skin too. I am fed up with it. Ive been to a dermotologist but the steroid cream is only a temporary fix. I dont know what to try next? I feel like Ive wasted alot of money of many creams or ointments and they all were a temporary treatment. My condition comes and goes,. Right now I decided to use my clinique facial lotion on my hands and seems to have soothed it for now. I was crying a little before because it feels as if this cant ever be cured. I have dealt with this condition for nearly 6 years.
