I used to post here a lot when I had problems with eczema, but I don't so much anymore. What has helped me the most is a Chinese herb creme called "Doctors Defense Zen Fusion Creme" (non-cortisone formula), which can be ordered on-line. It has helped me tremendously in getting the red out, and also keeping new attacks from coming. My skin is OK now for the most part, but every couple of months, I can tell eczema is coming back when my skin gets very sensitive, particularly on my hands. Putting this creme on overnight completely gets rid of the sensitivity, and prevents my skin from going into eczema.
