Hi HI

Yes i know of a good cream, Cetraben emollient. If u have dry skin u need to use emollients to moisturise it. Ask your doctor for it, or if u can get without prescription which i think u can from the pharmacy.

All these store creams have so much junk in them, and irratate the skin. There are different types of emollients. so try whatever will suit you.

Also dont wash ur face with soap, and drink water, instead of coka colaa and all that junk...and alcohol no good either.

Some info., that may help you

Check with ur doc too before u try these, just in case some ingredient does not suit you.

I've found aveeno to be better for me. In the end, I'd normally advise experimentation. The greasier it is, the better it is at holding in moisture but the more messy/smelly it is and more likely to stain clothing. Creams tend to be userfriendly but less effective.

Also I'd recommend reducing sugar intake and using aqueous cream as a soap substitute.

I've had eczema for years, not as bad as some people but it is quite horrible having it all the way through your childhood. But looking back at it I think I couldve dealt with it alot better had i been more conscious of what was going on. Its like my skin starts tickling. So I scratch it. Which causes skin to lose its moisture. So it tickles more and i scratch more. Eventually the skin breaks and opens. Which causes my skin to get irritated more so i scratch more. Before I know it its all over my neck.

Best advice I can give OP cut your nails so you cant scratch yourself and make your skin worse. Also mentally be aware of when you start scratching and stop yourself.

As far as creams go, I just stick with Nivea Creme now for moisturising. E-45 have some good ones aswell, like I think they have an itch relief cream for inflamed skin. Maybe just goto pharmacy and see what they can suggest. Best creams are the ones that feel cool when applied. With stuff like Vaseline, about 20mins after applying it i used to wanna tear my skin off but everyone reacts differently to things so might work for you.

Lastly try figure what is causing your skin to start itching in first place so you can stop it happening in future before gets bad/worse. goodluck.

keep your skin moisturized. don't wash it too much, leave the bodies natural oils in there. eat healthy (lots of fruit, apples, bananas, avacados, peaches, lemons have lots of vitamins that help skin) use some desi tel, best tel out there :D. also visit a doctor. but..... i used to have very bad skin on my nose when i was 4-5years old, it was growing and getting worse. no medicines or creams were working. i went amritsar while on holiday, and had ishnaan at darbaar sahib. trust me, this worked. i have had no problems since then. best medicine ever. :D. also this is off topic but i thought i 'd say this. i got really ill last time i went india. puking headaches. i asked if i could go anandpur sahib, when i got there i went around drinking the water from the sarovars and where sangta wash their feet (:D) and it worked! i don't know what happened but i recovered a few days after, thought i'd have to leave early, but guru kirpa i got better.

all fruits are good :) just try get a balance of different types. when you have a snack cut fruit or veg up and drink water or milk. limes have benefits that are pretty similar, although i eat these more in summer as it helps keep cool. the radiation in chest xrays is equivalent to 500-600 bananas. bananas are awesome!!!!!
