Hi again Phillipa,

after a bit of research on whats avaliable in America, I'd go for Eucerin cream as a moisturiser, and Cetaphil for use in the shower instead of soap.

Re your steroid cream, I'd ask your doctor for betametasone cream - this is very effective and drit cheap at Walmart type pharmacies (some of the newer steroids can run to $100 a tube, and are no more effective)

Use it upto three times a day when your eczema is bad, reduce it to once a day when it improves.
Use the Eucerin once or twice a day, every day, to keep the skin moist, soft and supple

Apply the moisturiser and give it half an hour to soak in before applying the steroid cream so that it doesnt dilute it.

The main thing is treat it regularly, mositurise every day, and hit it with your steroid at the first sign of a flare up.
