Sweat is a trigger but what can I do? I have to work and am on my feet all day. So tired of incredibly itchy, dry, scaly, leathery peeling patches of skin. If I use powder to stop sweating dries it out even worse. Help!

Can I reverse thickened skin and scarring from eczema?

Can I reverse thickened skin and scarring from eczema?

Hello, I'm a long time eczema sufferer and am getting it in check for the first time in many years, I'm 23 now.
