I use Aveeno hydrocortizone 1%. I used to use elidel, but the Aveeno costs less (even with insurance) and works just as well, for me anyway.

I have used Relief Cream for about 5 years now. for my Ecema. It has Tree Tee Oil, and Aloe Vera in it. It is non perscription, and works better than anything I have tried. The perscription ones seem to make my skin thinner

Evening Primrose oil topically. They have it at vitamin shoppe. You can also take it orally. A need for essential fatty acid is a cause of eczema.

I have had eczema for 42 years. I think I've had every treatment under the sun including perscription creams, soaks and even ultra violet rays. My excema was confined to my hands which was a nightmare. Even to pick up a cup, my hands would crack and bleed. The only thing that worked was steroids which couldn't be taken often. In desperation, I tried a cream that I found on the internet. It was offered for free with just the cost of shipping (samples). Cocoa butter never worked for me either. This cream is called yu-be and has been used in Japan for multiple things. It worked so well, that I am now a distributor. here is the link, you can search the site for a retailer near you. If you can't find someone, you can contact me at grammiecracker AT I think you can get the trial sizes on the site. Good luck, Daine

I can't attest to this but I've also heard that you can use coconut oil for eczema. I recently purchased a small canister of some at WalMart for a couple of bucks over on the food aisle where the oils are. It can be ingested as well as used for cooking but is also supposed to be good for the skin. It comes in a solid form but will melt from the heat of your hand into a liquid form. I tried a little on my hands and they felt soft as a baby's bottom and not at all greasy. Might be worth a try.
