Weeping, flaky, painful eczema around mouth

Weeping, flaky, painful eczema around mouth

Please help! My eczema around my mouth hurts and is flaky and weeping. Nothing i do helps. I use Vaseline and it either makes it worse or doesn't help. Any lotion i put on it burns and stings. I’m waiting to get on Dupixent. But i need something that’ll stop the weeking and flaking until i get the Dupixent and it starts working.

Hi. Has anyone had to deal with the very thick, hard, cracking and painful skin on the feet, particularly around the heels & toes?

I have this very dry, hard, cracking build-up of skin around the rim of my heels & toenails. It's ugly, painful and very difficult to deal with. It even limits how far I can walk. Does anyone have this, and do you have any tips or tricks to help this peel off & get rid of it?
