Has Anyone Use Halobetasol Steroid Cream For Long Periods Of Time.

Has Anyone Use Halobetasol Steroid Cream For Long Periods Of Time.

Been dealing with moderate/severe eczema for a almost 2 years now. I'm seeing more outbreaks on my body. Hands & feet, ankles & calves are the worse. I am using a new cream called ByeBye Eczema with all natural ingredients, also use Helobetasol, Vanictram body moisturizer & Hydroxyzine at night to help the itch and sleep. I want to try Dupixent but I don't think it's covered by my insurance. At wits end!

A MyEczemaTeam Member said:

I agree concern with these steroids. And, yes, it do mix my ointments immediately following with slathering of Cerave. No help to me tho, sadly. Thank you.

Have You Heard Of Subacute Spongiotic Dermatitis?

Have You Heard Of Subacute Spongiotic Dermatitis?

Have any body heard of subacute spongiotic dermatitis? I was diagnosed in the early 1990's and was told this will never go away. And it's true. But I found a temporary cure. If you live close to the beach, wade in the water. I don't know if its the salt water or micro organism in the water eatting on the area. Believe me it clear up for about 3 to 4 days.

A MyEczemaTeam Member said:

Yes..... If you're not near a beach, try to bathe in pickle juice or AC vinegar.

What Reaction If Any Did Any Eczema Sufferers Have After Covid Vaccine Shot??? Have Any NOT Been Vaccinated Because Of Eczema

I am 82 and have autoimmune issues in addition to eczema. My family is pressuring me to be vaccinated but they don't really accept my autoimmune diagnoses. I stay to myself and have food delivered so don't go shopping or anywhere around people. I let no one in my home. Thoughts?

A MyEczemaTeam Member said:
