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!

Hello I'm on dupixent.if you have insurance and see a dermatologist they can write you a script and my dupixent line if you call them they have a program where I'm not paying anything for it. It's a great help I've been on it a year after 3 months no itching and I'm back to wearing tank tops that I haven't been able to wear for 3 year's I had to wear long sleeves it's the best for me hope this helps

If you use steroids all of the time they lose their usefulness and cause long term issues. Try mixing your ointments with a lotion or a cream. Also try going natural. It takes patience, but its worth the process.
